Far-off places | 4th song from Brad Peterson’s The Ellipsis Album

Brad Peterson is an indie-pop singer-songwriter from a wooded area near Lake Michigan north of Chicago. There, he built a little back-yard garden shed – where he writes and records his songs. He has shared stages with Jeff Buckley and Radiohead, but stopped making music after a spinal injury left him unable to record or perform for several years.

About the song “Far-off places, which is on “the Ellipsis Album”, Brad notes:

“I have a bit of a cinematic sensibility in my daydreams. If this were a scene from a movie, it would like was colorized by Juarez Machado. I picture a town near the lake district in England at sunset in late summer where I hope to go someday soon. The drumming tendencies of this recording (and of the whole record) represent a shift for me supplanting the hi-hat with floor tom. Resisting it’s “epic disposition” there were many more instrument parts that I muted in the final version.”

‘The Ellipsis Album’ was written, recorded, and produced solely by Brad in his garden shed

Lyrics:

Of far-off things we’ve thought today
Our cares dissolve and fade let’s go
To the far-off places
Remembrance of how it was
With woes forgotten just because we’ll know
In those far-off places
To Far-off places
To Far-off places we’ll go
The walls dissolve from where we stay
Our care will slowly fade away for to
Beguile and engrace us
Warm golden light and floral scent
A gentle breeze our hearts distend
By smiles of those foreign faces
To Far-off places
To Far-off places we’ll go
From a drawn-beat haunt
Amongst the empty vaunt
Ameliorate detente
There lies our hidden want
To Far-off places
To Far-off places we’ll go
