"Ayappa"


Going Somewhere Soon
Produced by Andre Hayter at Difficult Children Studios ( which happens to be his living room)
Lyrics by Jodie Manross
Music by Laith Keilany

Counting waves over miles of sea
and the skies were completely clear
as my first love and other disasters
for a while slowly disappear

Chorus:
There's a kind of light
that shines off you
and I'm going to the sun for answers
it's as if the world was made for you
and all the light contained within

I'm always revising, like memory
a map drawn in the deepest shades
and I'm trying to put all the past behind me
and let the good days carry me away
The edges of life were my coastlines,
a contest between ocean and shore
And if you said that we’d have plenty,
I couldn't agree with you more

Chorus:
There's a kind of light
that shines off you
and I'm going to the sun for answers
it's as if the world was made for you
and all the light contained within

….Within

(Break)

I'm trying to shape this rough stuff into a life
looking for a home, the perfect place to be
a slant of sun; an even level of light
and you stumbled onto where life holds me

Chorus:
There's a kind of light
that shines off you
and I'm going to the sun for answers
it's as if the world was made for you
and all the light contained within

all the light contained within
all the light contained…


Ayappa was written by Jodie Maross and Laith Keilany for their friend Ayappa who resides in California. Ayappa is the god of wrath in hindu, but as Jodie always states in concert this Ayappa is "The sweetest man i have ever met!"
