The Artist

from Hear My Melody by Hughes Taylor



The Artist is the most complex song on the album. It is about how the artist sees more than what meets the eye. With a classic-rock sound, The Artist is the biggest song on Hear My Melody.


A new world to untrained eyes
Of wonder, color, fantastic lies
Amidst the crowds of tear-stained eyes
You'll find the Artist, no emotional ties

The Artist, with cold, far away stare,
Looks through the smoke with a skeptical glare.
He sees the world, no rose-colored flare
And with a heavy heart, apart the world will tear.

Woah, oh, the Artist knows
How the story goes, oh no

Alone, the Artist sits and waits
The elite critique the meek with hate
While the beggar pleads, the mogul takes
But the world can't see man's mistakes

Woah, oh, the Artist knows
How the story goes, oh no

And with his gift, the Artist embarks
To enlighten the world on what's kept in the dark
He knows that once he's left his mark
The world erupts with just a single spark

Woah, oh, the Artist knows
How the story goes, oh no
