Official video for Stretch



Dave Desmelik - Stretch - copyright 2014 (BMI) from the album 'We Don't Want A Dying Flame' - www.davedesmelik.com
Filmed and edited by Tommy Wakefield - wakefieldfilms@gmail.com

The basis of this song is belief in hope. The thought that a look inside ourselves can bring renewed awareness. The feeling of accomplishment through life.
Here are the lyrics:

Stretch - out my legs
Catch - a deep breath
I don't feel any pain

Hit - a home run
Risk - all you've done
You won't walk in the rain

Play - by the rules
Make use - of your tools
We can't all be the same

Keep - your chin up
Bleed - out your blood
No one gets easy change

Take - some time sometimes
The game - can be a grind
We don't want a dying flame

Have strength - to keep your head
Give thanks - to the dead
You will not forget your name

Think - of all those years
Blink - back the tears
I don't feel any pain

    Loved you and your music since we met during your tour of UK. This seems more introspective, and I think I know where it came from .. Mr H maybe? Loved it, and often reflect on the time we all spent together and wish we could revisit it ... be strong my dear friend, and take all my hopes with you xxx thank you Josh for sharing - did I detect your light touch on there too? Bless you my dear friends xx

    Love it Dave, I am so glad that you were able to continue you passion of music. I remember, when you would play open mic nite at Charly's Bar and you would get a little nervous. Not anymore!
