Songs of Will T. Massey — “Out of This World”

 

Will T. Massey — "The Weathering"Will rarely co-wrote with other musicians. 

He included a pair of tunes co-written with Mark Luke Daniels (“Fading Away Like my Jeans” and  “Waltz Across my Mind“) on Kickin’ Up Dust as well as “Long Distance Love“, co-written by Chicago House owner, Peg Miller. 

Waiting on You,” co-written with Rosie Flores about that same was never released, but I got a rough recording of that at Will’s release party for Slow Study in 1989.

This is one of two co-writes with Will’s longtime musical partner, Dave Ducharme-Jones. This was on Will’s 2016 release, The Weathering, that Dave produced before they parted ways.

I don’t think I’ll leave love anymore,
I’ve left righteous love behind.
The cover of a schoolbook, your front door —
You taught me how to travel through time.
Letting go, saying so and “Sorry,” too
And doing so was troubled tears
Free to bend reality, I’ve chosen you,
A reason to reappear.

We’ve got to get out of this world —
Of many universes we share.
Out of this world —
Stop the time from going nowhere.

Did I come from another world to meet your eyes?
Did you live another life on earth?
Decades come and go and we’ll survive
To know what the age is worth.

We’ve got to get out of this world —
Of many universes we share.
Out of this world —
New incarnation somewhere.

We’re reflected in the windows of this bar,
The rain is coming down in swords.
Through our images over midnight cars,
What are we heading towards?

We’ve got to get out of this world —
Of many universes we share.
Out of this world —
I’m feeling like a destined pair.

We’ve got to get out of this world —
Of many universes we share.
Out of this world —
Dust of the young spring air.
