Dark Universe – Shatter – Live Video & Story

Dark Universe’s Shatter Live: Deepest Black Friday, October 13th, The Civic Hotel.

Shatter is a new song from the upcoming Into The Black album. It is a poignant tale that has a universal (pun intended) theme. Whilst I have my own personal take on Shatter the crux of the song is about the price we pay for freedom.

Escape to freedom may come in many forms; abusive relationships, political struggle, racial, religious and gender/sexual oppression, and humans being horrid to other humans, which has been going on for aeons.

Shatter refers to the situation in which you are only accepted should you conform to someone else’s views or control. You escape, but the cost is a heavy one. I am certain everyone that reads this has had an experience that they can relate to with Shatter.

Anyway, when all is said and done be true to yourself, and break any chains that hold you down. You are worth it.

Original Shatter Lyrics
(Since Edited but here is the raw version)

I never thought it would end this way
And who’d believe we would see the day
Finding out what it’s like to be me
That’s the price of living free

I didn’t think it would hurt so bad
And I hate to think that I’d made you sad
But some things are meant to be
And I had to go…

That I’d end up as a memory
(And) One you’d rather forget
I would think of you every day
And the love that we had…

And My World Would Shatter

Some things don’t make much sense
What you want is not always what you get
And when you try to take it back
They don’t want to know

And Your World Would Shatter

You would shatter

I am who I am
You are what you feel
If God gave you everything
Then took it away…
Just Swept it away…
Then Your World Would Shatter

It would shatter
Shatter…

Who’d have thought it would end this way
Who’d believe the price we pay
Give your life to be living free
Give your life to be me

About The Deepest Black Lyric Video

 

Deepest Black is the song that really started me on a new path of creativity. It took many years to work out who I was as a musician, but this song has given me a reason to go on ironically. (Read the words to get that).

I remember playing it in its first version to producer Stuart James at Kosmic. He practically started convulsing. Either it made him ill, or it hit him hard. The second option was correct, and Stuey has pushed and supported me ever since that day. We both love music that moves the soul.

The second victim was Donna Greene. We had just played a charity gig at the Rocket Room, which was our first glimpse of what would be our new musical vehicle, even though it was more to get Donna out and help her with the MS fight-back thing.

Donna asked me what I had been up to, so I played the same DB demo. Donna also convulsed. Not from the MS, or a bad tummy, but from a wave of raw emotion. You can see that emotion very clearly in this lyric vid. It may be subtle, but let go for the ride and immerse yourself, feel it with us. Donna also loves music that touches the soul, and at the deepest levels!

That is what Deepest Black is all about. The ability to feel. Empath along with us!!!

Jaime Page The Profile Interview

I recently had the delightful opportunity to be interviewed by my old friend Gary Dunn for The Profile.

Gary and I have known each other in one form or another since our high-school days in Whyalla, and have worked together many times, at Kosmic as well as at various gigs and events.

The beauty of the situation is that we know and understand each other so well. The interview covers a lot of ground, though we could have gone on for much longer.

My career has been an interesting one for sure, even if it did not pan out as expected.  We cover the Brian May saga, my UK experiences and much more. Watch the video for more!

Many thanks to Mark Whitehouse and all at Pro Copy, Alan Simpson, Gary Dunn and Phil Strachan.

Goodbye Angel Lyrics

Song Lyrics

 

Goodbye Angel

I met an angel with a broken wing
She danced with the devil
Original sin

Now I can’t hold her
And I don’t know why
She looked at me sadly
Then away she fly

Goodbye angel
We might make it
I don’t know…

IF YOU DON’T KNOW BY NOW
WHO LOVES YOU…

Life has a reason but it never seems fair
Get what you wanted
But you never seem to care

Hold on to something
that you think may last

Find out its nothing
And you’re lost in the past

Goodbye angel
We might make it
I don’t know…

IF YOU DON’T KNOW BY NOW

WHO LOVES YOU…
WHO NEEDS YOU
LIKE I DO

Find me that angel
with the broken wing

I would give anything just to
hear her sing

Might be a question
but who knows why

Try cage the spirit
the spirit will die

Goodbye angel
We might make it
I don’t know…

IF YOU DON’T KNOW BY NOW
WHO LOVES YOU…

WHO LOVES YOU
WHO NEEDS YOU
LIKE I DO

If Lyrics

“Eternal questions…”.

IF

If I break this heart again
If I break your heart and then
From a distance call your name
Lost and found your own twin flame

If you feel the love…
The love you feel inside
Can you feel the pain
A love you can never hide

Hold me – Won’t you love me
Give me reason to go on..

If I break this heart again
If I break your heart and then
Like a memory lost in time
Mystic bond you feel inside

Did you feel the same?
Its like a word you can’t explain
Did you feel the light
And did you catch it deep inside?

Hold me – Wont you love me
Give me reason to go on..

If I share my heart and then
We don’t share this path again
If you gracefully decline
I would wait for you in time

Oo-oh you know you lift me
Ooo-oh you dream fulfil me
Break these chains and be there with me
And learn to love again…

If you feel the love…
The love you feel inside
Did you feel the light
Did you catch it in your mind?

Hold me – Wont you love me
Give me reason to go on..

If I break this heart again
If I break your heart and then
If I share my heart with you
Then believe you always knew

If you feel the love…

Dark Universe Lyrics

“So alone…”.

Dark Universe

It’s cold here in my dark place
Somewhere lost in emptiness
I’m lost here in my dark space
So lonely a better place

It’s cold here in my dark place
Somewhere lost in emptiness
I’m lost here in my dark space
So lonely a better place

When life seems to fall away
And nights like this it all makes sense
And time seems to drift away
And maybe you could be someone else for a while
And you wish you could change your mind
A life in the distance is easy to live
But close up it can make you cry
The reasons to believe can fall thru your hands
But you know not to question why

I’m broken, lost and hurting, a runaway
I’m falling, hear my calling, a castaway

Your welcome in my dark place
Just strangers and endless days
It’s cold here in my dark place
Somewhere lost in empty space

Letting Go Lyrics

“Let go the impossible, impossible things may happen…”

Letting Go

I know there’s somewhere deep inside
A secret place where you can hide…
Where you can be what you are
Be that glittering star

Don’t ever turn back and run
Your journeys only just begun
You got to take up the fight
Don’t be afraid of the light…

You can’t keep holding on
When you’re feeling it’s gone
You have the will to survive
So keep your freedom alive

And don’t let me hold you down
Cause maybe I won’t be around
Just one moment, it’s gone
And I’ll keep moving along…

You know it’s time for LETTING GO break free
(Just) Take your chances then you run baby
You know it’s time for LETTING GO maybe
Take your chances then you run baby
Far away from here…

You know it’s time for LETTING GO break free
(Just) Take your chances then you run baby
You know it’s time for LETTING GO maybe
Take your chances then you run baby
Far away from here…

I know theres something left for you
You still have so much more to do
I see that hunger in your eyes
(Let it) Take you where your spirit flies

You know it’s time for LETTING GO break free
(Just) Take your chances then you run baby
You know it’s time for LETTING GO maybe
Take your chances then you run baby
Far away from here…

You know it’s time for LETTING GO break free
(Just) Take your chances then you run baby
You know it’s time for LETTING GO maybe
Take your chances then you run baby
Far away from here…

Prisoners of war and pain

Deepest Black Lyrics

“From the darkest depths of one’s soul. You are looking for Light, but seeing only Black. You deny your passion and longing, but ultimately find your true self…”

DEEPEST BLACK

So far from nowhere
Evil unholy
Its dark
And nothing else lives here

No point in Fighting
This hurt inside me
I wait and long for you

I cant go on
I cant go on
With wounded heart
I will be gone

DEEPEST BLACK
I’M WAITING FOR YOU
(WAITING FOR YOU)
DEEPEST BLACK

I’ts cold, lonely
These tears that bind me
So far falling deeper down

One last hold me
Then Bleed me slowly
My aching will be done

I will be gone
I will be gone
This broken heart
These broken shards

DEEPEST BLACK
I’M HURTING FOR YOU
(HURTING FOR YOU)
DEEPEST BLACK

I cant go on
I cant go on
The black inside
When feelings die

DEEPEST BLACK
I HUNGER FOR YOU
(HUNGER FOR YOU)
DEEPEST BLACK
