I wrote this song about the impact and trauma of suicide.

As I walk along Tyne Bridge
Flowers are waving
waving from the winds
into the river

As I walk along Tyne Bridge
flowers are missing
missing all their friends
and the gaps theyv'e left behind

But now I can't help this feeling
I can't help but believe in
the value of life
itself
As I walk along Tyne Bridge

As I walk along Tyne Bridge
Seagulls are wailing
sitting on their ledge
without danger

As I walk along Tyne Bridge
after graduation
and never could we admit
that the drop
has seemed so small

But now I can't help this feeling
I can't help but believe in
the value of life
itself
As I walk along Tyne Bridge

the shattered
the shattered remain
with the shattered
the shattered remains
of yesterdays life...
as we walk along Tyne Bridge

Sorry Mar I am such an idiot, hope this is not too annoying. I think I was excited at finding another great feedback forum

And we’re glad you found us.
And a pity you missed yesterday’s Kitchen meeting (Zoom-wise) hosted by Mo.
And the Kitchen’s management may be the only management that’s completely trustworthy.  Do I hear that bending the rules to enable growth is traditionally one of the key tasks of the management in general?

And I hope you will take some time to write an intro in ‘Me’ to get us familiar with you and why you are fashionably late.

And as I am the first to have entered for this challenge, I am going to listen now to your song. Ballroom along @arthur237 and good luck to you/your entry.
Kind regards, Gus

@arthur237  - welcome to this place - I am sure you will be very happy here...

Great song - extremely plaintiff and melancholic - sang beautifully and with sensitivity. Most of all - it reminds me of home - so far away... I live in Johannesburg now - but am originally from Newcastle - so I have taken that walk many times myself both in and out of toon...

It would be really great to hear a studio recording of this song.

Well done - I look forward to hearing more.

Hola @arthur237

The song has a wonderful swing, and the simple instrumentation gives it a very special atmosphere, full of melodic space.

Wondeerful lyrics and very relaxing and moving.

Hasta otro día

@arthur237 - wow, your sound is amazing! ...Very moving lyrics and such a great melodious vocal delivery from the very first verse - you got me hooked from the start (that first line sounds brilliant... great melody... and your vocal timbre perfectly conveys the right ambience). Beautifully done!

Btw. Welcome to the kitchen & looking forward to listening to more of your songs :)
