Gimme the Breeze

My body’s aching from hitting the pavement, been driving a two-ton cage

Down every highway, never goin my way, for what, a surviving wage?

 

I’ve been restless like a bird perched up in the tree

Hungry to take off and spread these wings

All I need is the wind to send me where I’m supposed to be

 

Gimme the breeze

Come on and set me free

Roll through my day

I’m ready to play

 

I wasted so many years dictated by fears of crashing into the ground

It can only be treason to live a life without meaning and resist where your soul is bound

 

Something’s in the air tonight, can’t you hear freedom sing?

I feel like I can finally spread my wings

All I need is the wind to send me where I’m supposed to be

 

Gimme the breeze

Come on and set me free

Roll through my day

I’m ready to play

 

Gimme the breeze

Come on and set me free

Roll through my day

I’m ready to play

 

Fly me, fly me away

Fly me, fly me away

All I need is the wind to send me where I’m supposed to be

 

Gimme the breeze

Come on and set me free

Roll through my day

I’m ready to play

 

Gimme the breeze

Come on and set me free

Roll through my day

I’m ready to play

 

Roll through my day

I’m ready to play

Roll through my day

I’m ready to play

 

In his debut album, “California Dream,” Americana singer-songwriter Tom Sless surveys a soulful ride down the winding roads of life and love, from Jersey Shore and Baltimore roots, to Los Angeles with celebratory country rock, nod-and-a-wink humor, and rough-hewn folksiness. The full-length album hits the airwaves March 27, 2020, on Marina Vista Records.


About the author

Tom Sless

Six years ago, Sless moved across the country to Los Angeles. After realizing he needed to pour his heart and soul into music in a way that he never had before, Sless delved deep into songwriting with a new approach to the music he’d been listening to all his life. In 2018, he enrolled in the Musicians Institute in Hollywood and quickly became a fixture on the Los Angeles singer-songwriter circuit, performing at The Mint, El Cid, The Study, TRiP Santa Monica, and NorthEnd Hollywood, to name a few. Sless is planning album release events on the West Coast and East Coast in support of California Dream. Confirmed dates will be announced once the live music terrain gets more clearly defined.
