Hello Everyone

These very Sad lyrics was written by benjo (Tony) about the Beautiful little Girl APRIL JONES.

I know its a very sad subject for some but we would really appreciate your thoughts on everything.

Thank you all.

APRILS SHOWERS
----- == ----- == -----

the innocent eyes
owned by a child
the sweetest smile
but this world can be so vile

the hand of evil
comes baring down
pure innocence gone
so hard to be found

Aprils showers
all the tears that fall
never forgotten
loved and missed by us all
Aprils showers
and then the rainbow
gods way of showing us
where his angels go

too young to understand
the rights and wrongs
to busy playing giggling
and singing songs

a shadow is cast
the sun has dimmed
a dark grey sky
cold and frosty wind

sad sad feelings
always in our hearts
you'll live forever now
among the brightest stars

Aprils showers
all the tears that fall
never forgotten
loved and missed by us all
Aprils showers
and then the rainbow
gods way of showing us
where his angels go

if there's a better life
on the other side
I imagine you playing  giggling
on the swings and slides...

Really poignant lyrics Benjo - I honestly really like your lyrics and the way you tackle a theme

Very haunting as well Pat  - the strumming and tempo is very similar to ' I will follow '' . Your voice and delivery really suit the subject matter though

Very well done

« Last Edit: October 27, 2013, 14:18:22 by it must be me, Dutchbeat? »
Hi, i have to admit i had to google to know what this was about (although the lyrics did give me an idea)

as Cheff says: heavy subject, but a beautiful song. Who made the music???

*edit* ok, that was stupid  :P :P :P :P, i understand now that you Dogmax and Pat are the same person  :P :P :P :P


don't make it all too complex for old dutchbeat  ;D ;D ;D ;D

when i googled for april showers (thinking that was the name of the girl in the song  :P :P :P) i saw there is an ancient song with a name like that already....i have that all the time, i think i make a completely new song with an original title and then when i upload it on youtube, i find out there are tons of bands who already used my title....
me, myself, and Pie

Thanks Kaf, Cheff and Dutch, as Tony says your words mean a lot to us, really was a pleasure to do this for Tony.

Super lyrics and super song.Only I would try to get the music a bit louder to the voice and I would try to work out better the melody from the second part off the chorus.May with a second instrument.
Very good song.Wasn?t it mine???Have to reflect on. ;D ;D ;D ;D

H guys...I posted this comment on the other forum, but would like to repost it here because this song moved me to tears :'(

This song is just so emotionally charged :'(  that all I can say is, that both lyrically and musically it accomplishes exactly what you intend  :'(  it touches us deep down in the heart  :'( 
it awakens compassion  :'(  and what more could you possibly you want with a song like this...

very well done guys  :'(  CS

I agree - such an emotional song.  It's interesting to me how well you've captured this emotion in both the rhythm guitar and vocal.  Your vocal is very unique and the lyrics heartfelt!  Such a poignant song that demands the listeners attention.

Well done!

Many Thanks Suzy & Paul

History writes great words that are carry by generations and taught in education to all young and old, but with songs there is a flow of emotion, in this song, emotion is sad very sad but it is also strong because it lifts us up after it take us down, now generations will say, NO MORE, like the many generations before.

Rest in Peace April, Never Forgotten
