Song looking for vocals and lyrics
« on: January 01, 2016, 16:28:23 »
This is an old song of mine that I really like. Due to a strange course of events it only got recorded in Finnish!?!? (with my old bands singer). Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful language but I don't understand a word of it and that goes for the rest of the world as well so the target group becomes sort of small....
Also, the production sucks pretty bad and I'm confident I can do this much better nowadays.
Anyway, anyone interested in writing some English lyrics to this and do the vocals (once I re-recorded everything)? Could be two different people doing lyrics or vocals but I guess things would be smoother if it was the same person.
I would prefer a female singer but if you do happen to be a man and feel "yeah, I could do some great stuff with this song" please step forward.
And I will obviously be very open minded about changing things, nothing written in stone really.

Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

wow, this is beautiful! I could definately try something! What are you looking in the lyrics?
What should be the topic? Do you want the melody to stay the same? I really like the song!
Maybe I cant sing that high on the scale, could the song be a little bit lower? But I will write something for sure!! :D :D :D

Lol! I just realised that I reused the verse for another song since I thought this one was "dead" (https://soundcloud.com/jambrains/until-it-is-time-to-part) so if we are going to do this we have to write a new verse melody. Re lyrics, you have carte blanche, I'm not much into lyrics really so feel free to choose topic etc as you please.
Since I would need to re-record everything anyway we can easily change the key to suit your vocal range, nemas problemas.

Hello @Jambrains, I tried to figure some lyrics for the song. Here it is: I dont know if i am satisfied with that, so i am just posting to hear your option on this. Is it too cheezy?  ;D I dont know. It is not ready but I am wondering if this is the direction you are looking for.   ::)

I know how it feels to feel the tears,
And nobody there to comfort me
And when the world is crashing down
I know I am more than it seems
I will go through the pain
And rise up again.

The sun is shining for me.
Even when there are so many clouds.
I am not my tears. I am not my fears.
I want to believe in me and go my way.

Even when the pain arises,
I wont run away and held my head up high.
Life has so much to give, and I am here to live
I want to be able to take the gifts.

I wont stop believing in myself and my love
Even when you left me here standing in the rain
I wont give up,
I don’t care what you think or say
I will rather go my way

You cant take away what the world has for me
I still believe in me ....

Greetings, Katze Königsberg :)

I'm impressed with these lyrics @Katze Konigsberg and it feels like they could match the track that @Jambrains has posted.

I wonder about these changes to the verses you posted  ???

I know how it hurts to feel these tears,
With nobody there to comfort me
And when the world comes crashing down
I know I am more than it seems
I will get through the pain
And rise up again.

The sun is shining for me.
Even when there are so many clouds.
I am not my tears. I am not my fears.
I want to believe in me and go my own way.

Even when the pain returns,
I wont run away and I'll hold my head high.
Life has so much to give, and I am here to live
I want to be able to take the joy it gives.

I wont stop believing in myself and my love
Even when you left me standing here in the rain
I wont give up,
I don’t care what you think or say
I would rather go my own way

You cant take away what the world has for me
I still believe in me ....

Hey @Jambrains , that's a fantastic tune man! I just ignored the meaning of those beautiful Swedish words (I don't understand a word of it either, but I'm surprised you can't understand, thought Swedish and Finnish were like Netherlands dutch/Belgium dutch. Good idea to reuse the instrumental and ask for collaboration at creating new english lyrics here.
@Katze Konigsberg , wow thank you so much for being so helful here! Big karma storm for you, and for @MrBouzouki for reviewing and correcting as well. This is kitchen power guys.. I'm very proud!

Cheers!
