Forgotten Fog - Song Lyrics from the 90s

This is one of the first songs that I wrote with my partner Ohad Varsano for our band Marion Daze. It has railing happy guitar parts that get you going. I will post our demo. We only made demos in our flat. I did open with this song when we played live. I even have a recording from CBGB's. I have to figure out how to convert it from a cassette to a digital format. I actually like this song exactly as it is. It exists on DAT but who has a DAT player these days? Our band did well for a solid 5 years and then we parted ways. Reunion I hope is in our future. Oh, I used to work in the Empire State Building for a while and I guess the fog made me think of the beach. I liked to daydream....


Forgotten Fog
By Julie Gengo/Ohad Varsano

Breaking away
Off the 61st floor
The forgotten fog
Off the rooftops
High as we can go

Breaking away
Off the 61st floor
The forgotten fog
Is drifting
Through my shoes
Once more

Life on a beach
Hear the sound
Of rushing water
Beneath my feet
And the complacent sensation
We come to meet

Life in discreet
Hear the rustle 
Of the wind
Between the leaves
One snap of a branch 
And I fall to my knees

Breaking away
Off the 61st floor
The forgotten fog
Off the rooftops
High as we can go

Breaking away
Off the 61st floor
The forgotten fog
Is drifting
Through my shoes
Once more

Black cats
Routine dates
Crossings
Can't ever be late
With sticky fingers
And interest rates
We wait and wait
We wait and wait
Forgotten fog
