Phasors on Stun (Hawkins, Nash the Slash)

about

1976 - my dad was a tv/radio repairman. One of his customers had brought in a radio for repair, but once my dad had fixed it the guy decided he didn't want it anymore. So my dad gave the radio to me - it was pretty old I guess so not like he could sell it in the shop to recoup the cost of parts. Anyways, at 12 years old and just having given up playing the accordion (my teacher had told my dad that I had learned everything he could teach me anyways) all of a sudden hearing Bohemian Rhapsody, Come Sail Away, Hold the Line, etc... sparked a renewed interest in playing music...

Phasors on Stun was one of the songs getting some high visibility rotation on Canadian radio, and it deserved it. It's always been a favorite of mine, and when the remastered albums started coming out on CD, Black Noise was one of my first to purchase.

I can only hope I am doing Cameron and Nash (RIP) justice with my version of their classic piece.

lyrics

Hold fast
Hold on
Nothing is a dream, yet in
Changing faster
It never seems to be here long
Move on
Turn 'round
Just can't seem to find it, try and
Reach out
Hold out
I cannot touch the wind
I touch you

Reach out
Hold out
Nothing here is real, try and
Searching farther
It almost seems to live until it
Moves on
Turns 'round
Just can't seem to lose it, try and
Hold fast

Hold on
I cannot ride the wind
I ride you

Hold fast
Hold on
Nothing is a dream until you
Wake up
Cry out
Now it isn't real, now you
Hold fast
Nothing is a dream
Hold on
Just can't lose it now
Move on
Turning round and round
Wake up
You cannot ride the wind
Hold fast
Nothing is a dream
Hold on
Just can't lose it now
Move on
Turning round and round
Wake up
You cannot ride the wind
