about

FLYING VISITS

This was the first song I ever wrote.
It is addressed to Sophia, the female personification of wisdom. The “mean little man” is my own shadow or ego.

lyrics

FLYING VISITS Copyright 2011 C.Blundell

Oh Sophia when will you come to stay
You promised you would come when I called
But now you seem so far away
There’s a mean little man trying to run the show
Who he is I don’t really know
But he’s always out to criticize and
Showing me the whites of his eyes
But I know that he’d be pacified
The minute that he saw you

CHORUS
You come for flying visits
I hardly know you’re here then you’re gone
You leave me feeling I can do no wrong
You come for flying visits
You live in a world that is out of our time
I watch the clock and the seconds go by

Oh Sophia when will you stick around
It’s when I try to do it myself
That I land up stuck on the ground
And that mean little man gets his foot in the door
He opens his mouth he’s talking like it’s war
He says I’m in the right and you’re to blame
Pointing fingers is his favorite game
But he’d realize we’re all the same
The minute that he saw you
CHORUS

But he’s always out to criticize
Showing me the whites of his eyes
But I know that he would see the light
The minute that he saw you
