A sea shanty on a summer's evening - live video
on: September 11, 2022, 20:19:03
Hello

Just wanted to share this little tune filmed during the recent heatwave for a song called I'll Be Home.
Song's about a fisherman lost at sea but eventually finds his way home.
Lyrics below :)



I've been torn by the rain and snow
My hands filled with cracks so old
Every scar is a place and time
A fight on the ocean line
Oh life on the sea .... For me ..... Me ....
I rise with the sound of hope
But fear I've still far to go
My mind broken down by the winds
A soul black and blue worn thin
Oh life on the sea .... For me ..... Me ....
But one of these tides..........

I'll be home.......
No more nights drifting on my own
I'll be home.......
Living life with my feet on stone
But one of these tides..........
I'll be home....... Home........

I can't see past the waves and fog
My face bruised and beaten so raw
Every task is a chore and climb
This war I've been faced is mine
Oh life on the sea .... For me ..... Me ....
I wait for my time to come
But now I've got work needs done
Those dreams deep within my heart
One day a new place to start
Oh life on the sea .... For me ..... Me ....
But one of these tides..........

I'll be home.......
No more nights drinking on my own
I'll be home.......
Living life with my feet on stone
But one of these tides..........
I'll be home....... Home.........

@muso1070  - well done - fine recording live at the sea. Are you writing more like these?
A tip could be to put in an extra chord half-way, for instance in this case around 'broken down by the winds'. Just a thought.
Keep writing!

Hi Leonard thanks pal definitely happy with this little live version.
Can be hard to capture a tune sometimes but with the perfect evening and nothing but the sound of the sea and a few passing birds it was easy enough  :D
