Ladder Of Life...

 

Hey, I want the words!!! Bill? Have you figured them out?

Hi Casey,

Man, I'm lousy at getting lyrics - especially from a scatchy single like this one. Hopefully Vince or Pete will be able to correct me. FWIW, this is about what I came up with:

Ladder of Life by Vince Martell (1983 Martell Records)

Here we are
Standing on the ladder of Life
(?) Watching him fall who wasn't told.
Seek and you shall find
Some stayed behind
Those halls and walls in life
That are the safest you can find
Some win and some lose
The price we'll one day have to pay
Little we can do or say

For you: Deep Blue Sea and Sky
Carry me higher and higher!

Blue-Gray Sea and Sky
Carry me on and on!

Here we are
On this ladder of time
Waiting for him who wasn't told
Set me free why dontcha babe
All the wrongs and rights
Turn upside down
Because all the wars and fights
The pain and strife we cause
Little do we know -
All those things that we have sown
Will haunt us tomorrow and remain/stay
Come Here! Sun/Son!
Have you heard?
Pass the Word,
Soon we'll be Eternity!
You will find if you will seek...

I really love the beat and guitar work on this song and hope that if they ever remaster the Mystery LP Vince's single will be included thereon. "Ladder of Life" together with the A side, "Cause I Love You", would make perfect bonus tracks to the Mystery LP if ever reissued on cd. Peace, Bill


For being lousy at getting lyrics you're pretty good... It's a super song the way it's put together. Hopefully we can get confirmation from Vince at some point.

Thanks for posting that!


Hi Casey,

It's a super song the way it's put together. Hopefully we can get confirmation from Vince at some point. <>I hope so - it's some really great rock & roll. I'll try getting the lyrics to "Cause I love you" later this week. I guess we should try putting together a lyrics database eventually. Peace, Bill
