Jewels was penned in February 1990, at Playa Montezuma, on the Pacific shore of Guanacaste Province, in Costa Rica, set to a melody that had been hanging around me since the early 1980’s. Maritime songs from the UK inspired me.  Dedicated to mystic explorers, Sufi poets and wayfarers, for the wonders they discover and share.

 

Dm              

Oh, Oh, I've been out, a wayfarer wandering,

C

I don't know where I am going.

Dm

Love is the fire the heart seeks in wonder.

        C                         Dm

The closer it gets, the shadow grows stronger.

Dm

Walk in the dark, and see with other senses.

   C

A shining path makes the way seem right.

Dm                                 C                    Dm

Silver pools, gilded fish, shooting star, make a wish.

 

F                    G                              Em                 Am 

Jewels wash upon the beach, and sparkle in the sun.

F                        G                               Em                    Am

Ancient roots of drowning mountains, turn to salt and sand.

F                  G                    D

You can find forever at the sea.

 

Dm

Travelers come from faraway places.

C

Gathered in the moonlight, a fire in their faces.

Dm

Lost on islands of fantasy,

C                                                            Dm

Far from the grasp of who they used to be.

         Dm

They walk in the dark and see with other senses. 

   C

A shining path makes the way seem right.

Dm                                 C                      Dm

Silver pools, gilded fish, shooting stars, make a wish.

 

F                    G                              Em                 Am         

Jewels wash upon the beach, and sparkle in the sun.

F                        G                               Em                    Am         

Ancient roots of drowning mountains, turn to salt and sand. 

F                   G                   D

You can find forever at the sea.

 

 

Dm                                            C

Here I am, alone and nowhere, reach and touch a falling moon.

Dm                                           C                                       Dm

Star-filled night, emerald light, showing me the way back home.

 

 

Dm

Walk in the dark, and see with other senses.

   C

A shining path makes the way seem right.

Dm                                 C                                   Dm

Silver pools, gilded fish, shooting stars, make a wish.

 

F                   G                               Em                 Am 

Jewels wash upon the beach, and sparkle in the sun.

F                        G                               Em                    Am

Ancient roots of drowning mountains, turn to salt and sand. 

F                   G                   D

You can find forever at the sea.
