about

This is a tongue-in-cheek shout from the rooftops about how it felt for Paul to return to live in his hometown after a life spent travelling the world making music, art and films. Some thought his numbers came in or that he lived outside the law to be able to make a living selling stories and songs. Some still do.

lyrics

PILLARSTONE

Don’t know much about the Bayou
Never made the move to LA
Fell in love in London town
Couldn’t wait to get away

Now I’m back on my home ground
Friends think my numbers came in
Or that I live outside the law
They only see the feast not the famine

Hard to make a living
Selling stories and songs
Always worked my fingers to the bone
And I can weather any storm
Like a pillar stone

The day that I came home
You know the sun started to shine
I dreamt I could walk on water
And turn it to wine

Some said I’m too big for my boots
But envy is a well run dry
If you don’t like what I got going on
Lift your heels and walk on by

Hard to make a living
Selling stories and songs
Still workin’ these fingers to the bone
And I can weather any storm
I’m the Pillarstone

You could say I’m lucky
You could say I’m rich
Got two times all I need
But it’s nothing you can count

Hard to make a living
Selling stories and songs
Still working these fingers to the bone
Watch me weather any storm
Cos I’m the Pillarstone

Out standing in my field
You won't hear me moan...
