You Here Now
You Here Now is a sweet and simple love song in a bossa ballad tempo.


Now that I am with you,
how could I ever leave you?
Now that we're together,
here's hoping it lasts forever.

I need you.
I need you.

Here we are in love now,
The earth below, the sky above now. 
We don't ever have to lose it;
let's just keep dancing to the music.

I'm the one who loves you.
I'm always thinking of you.
You're the one I long for,
the one I sing this song for.

Let's forget the sorrow,
yesterday, tomorrow.
Now is when you hear me.
Here you are right near me.
 

Now There Is You
is a love song. Or is it a spiritual? Myro seems to leave it open to the listener's interpretation. Is he cooing his baby or is he praising the lord? Can you spot the rare brass instrument mastered by Bill?


I could walk across the street.
I could jump over the rainbow.

But whenever I get to the place where I'm going,
where I think that I know what I think is worth knowing, whenever I get just so high,
then there am I.

And the light of your smile
comes and lights up my life
and then shines a while.

And then by the light of your smile,
I can wander a million miles.

So I walk across the street
and I jump over the rainbow.
When your light shines on me, I have wings like an angel. When your light shines on me, I can walk on the water. When your light shines on me, I can see:
Now there is you.

Your encouraging smile
lights my way and I see now where I'm going.
Your smile lights my way; the path now is glowing.
Your smile lights my way and I say:
Now There Is You.

The late great Bill Hannaford

 

 

 

 

 

 


Kill or Kiss
Poetry, philosophy, vision? Pure Myro.


What kind of trip is this?
Would you rather kill or kiss?
What kind of fool am I?
Why do I wonder why?
Now that we are together,
should we go? Should we stay?
Or just wait for a beautiful day?

Stop and look all around you now.
Laugh or cry if you can.
Yes, if you try your soul,
I know you'll understand.

No one, no gun can wipe that smile from
your soul.  No mind fighting the times
can conceive of an ultimate goal.

Watch the world grow around you now
as the old one comes tumbling down.
Yes, if you try your soul,
I know peace can be found.

Someone whose work has just begun
is flying around in our head.
Someday some god will say:
"Finally Man is dead."
(And then we'll all be gods.)

MYRO


Song For Mavis
with a notable Spanish influence, was written on the occasion of the birth of Myro's daughter, who does incidentally have some Spanish blood.

Mavis, take this.
Come get your sweet kiss
from your daddy who really loves you.

My eyes are looking straight ahead at the sight of you,
pure delight of you.
My mind is working overtime at the thought of you,
the mere thought of you.
My heart's about to skip a beat.
I'm just about to lose this mind.
All these feelings you bring out in me, you bring into me.

My life was like a sinking ship in a storm, lost at sea.
All the crew deserted one by one, in that ocean of misery.
And then you heard my SOS.
You put my feet back on the ground.
All these feelings you bring out in me, you bring into me.
Mavis...Mavis...Mavis...Mavis...

Mavis in the ''70's


2BFree
was written for this CD, although it is based on a bass line which has been
"haunting" Myro for years. Myro and Steve wanted to do something with a
very contemporary feel that would hopefully reach today's troubled youth.
His heart filled with song, his soul with poetry, Myro's mind defies
conventional wisdom, his wit overflowing with social and political satire.
Myro writes, "WARNING: Parental discretion aside, this song contains
explicit truths. Truth can get funky. Kids, please try this at home, in
the streets, throughout the universe. I dedicate this talking blues to
Nelson Mandela, whose writing I've found inspirational." Note that all the
instruments, except for the saxophones and flute, are actually synthesized.


(YOU MUST SET THE PACE)
Everybody's in a hurry, but they don't know where they're goin'. 
If you go against the light, how can we keep the traffic flowin'?

(HUMAN RACE)
For the first time in history we can plot our evolution. 
You're either part of the problem or you're part of the solution.

(FACE TO FACE)
The moment of truth is rapidly approachin'; 
laws of nature in motion; 
there's a change in the ocean.

(CAN'T TRUST GOVERMENT)
It was born in the true spirit of revolution. 
But after 200 years of political prostitution, political pollution,

(WHERE IT WENT)
Now our country's run by multi-national corporations.
We all bow down to the great profit-nations.

(VALUES BENT)
They celebrate their liberty to screw their fellow man, 
just wanna get it while they can;
accountability be damned.

(UNCLE SAM NEEDS YOU)
We got the greatest war machine. It's feared throughout the world. 
It's the best for killing men, women, boys, and little girls.

(SAD BUT TRUE)
It's comforting to think it's used to protect democracy. 
But if you really believe that, you been watching too much tv.

(WHAT GUNS DO)
When you're bombing innocent children, all those lofty ideals fail. 
Can't close me on that sale. 
Guns and money prevail.

(THE POOR GET POORER)
We got the greatest inequality of any industrialized nation. 
And the gap widens at the fastest acceleration.

<UB> (THE JUROR)
Nobody complains 'cause we've lost faith in the system. 
Sure we had elections, but everybody dissed 'em, missed 'em. It really pissed 'em.

(WHAT FUROR)
Do we just sit back and watch the rich getting richer? 
What's wrong with this picture? 
If she's broke down, we gotta fix her!

(THEY JUST TILT THE SCALES)
We got the most prisons and the most prisoners in 'em. 
If your kids smoke a joint, the joint is where they send 'em.

(FILL THE JAILS)
Meanwhile the supersuit crooks continue with their betting. 
If they ever get nailed, their jail's a country club setting.

(JUSTICE FAILS)
The rich get away with murder; it's a rich man's game.
if you're poor, you're to blame. 
Take a number for a name.

(JUST LEARN 2BFREE)
Our schools don't work; they're just another form of prison, 
stifling young minds and the creativity that goes with 'em.

(A,B,C)
If our kids get smart, it'll be despite our ministrations. 
Hopefully they'll overcome our so called education.

(1,2,3)
How long can we expect them to see the world as we drew it? 
It's obvious we blew it. 
Didn't know how to do it.

(STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS)
Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. 
That's what we were promised, but instead we got this mess.

(PICK YOUR FIGHTS)
Check out Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King. violence don't get it; civil disobedience is the thing.

(BLACKS AND WHITES)
Divided we fall; united we stand. 
Every woman, kid, and man, 
do what you can!

(YOU MUST TAKE NO JIVE)
Hollywood, Washington, Madison Avenue.
They're busy working overtime to obfuscate your view.

(BE ALIVE)
The only lesson you'll ever learn with your eyes gluedto the tv 
is how to live out your life in mediocrity, like a zombie.

<THEN WHEN YOU'RE>(NINETY FIVE)
And you look back at your life and wonder where it went. 
Was it wisely spent? Just treading water, paying rent?

(YOU DON'T NEED NO DRUG)
Your body is a temple and to set your spirit free, you have to cherish it, preserve it. Don't change its chemistry.

(GLUG-A-LUG)
40 oz. malt liquor or Dom Perignon. 
Alcohol is poison, but it's legally condoned.

<YOU GRAVE >(IS DUG)
If you think you need drugs or booze to get by, you'll never get high, in misery you'll die.

(DON'T YOU SUCK NO SMOKE)
We're finally gettin' wise to the nicotine pushers' lies.
Joe Camel's goofy grin while your loved one dies.

(AIN'T NO JOKE)
It might be the most addictive of all the killer drugs. That's been the plan all along of those executive killer thugs.

(YOU GO BROKE)
Why pay those thugs your money in exchange for your death? 
it might as well be meth. 
You choke on your last breath.

(EMBRACE GOD WITHIN)
All the truth and beauty of the universe inside.
your heart, your soul, your mind. Just open up wide.

<LET THE>(SPIRIT WIN)
Don't be led astray by all those sugar coated temptations. 
You'll find the highest high through your deepest meditations.

(ZERO IN)
Focus on the clear bright light within. 
Don't be fumblin'.
Watch for traps. Don't stumble in.

(TRUST YOUR HEART AND SOUL)
You feel a great potential waiting to be realized.
A beautiful life much better than you ever fantasized.

2B( WHOLE)
You gotta really love yourself to let yourself be free,
to live the life you love, to fulfill your destiny.

(WATCH THE GOAL)
Inch by inch, if you're headed in the right direction,
you'll make the cosmic connection. 
It's a natural selection.
