Doggerland
on: June 29, 2019, 10:36:23
An earlier version was discussed in the collaboration section https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/collaborations/21/doggerland-wip/5433/msg59124. Here is a more definitive version. Then again, what is definitive in music?
Mark J. Bennet from Edinburgh sang on this.
This National Geographic article on Doggerand was part of the inspiration
https://www.nationalgeographic.org/maps/doggerland/

Doggerland

I have been waiting
for the rain to come.
The land was drying,
under the heavy sun.

Doggerland's sinking
into the sea,
up on trial is infinity
Doggerland's sinking
going so deep,
under the tide
from which time can leap.

But now it is raining
and the sky will fall
I didn't heed that
final stormwatch's call

Doggerland's sinking
into the sea,
up on trial is infinity
Doggerland's sinking
under the tide
going so deep
from which time can't hide.

I have been waiting
for you to change your mind -
You should be wiser,
how could you be so blind?

Doggerland's waiting
to tell its tale
whatever we do
the tide prevails...

So here is tomorrow
there goes today:
Watch it unfold
I should be on my way.

Playing blindman's bluff
in a hall of mirrors,
in the winter cold.
Where is the land
where is the ground
that we can hold?

I'll keep searching
for Doggerland

Excellent work.
Sophisticated and easy on the ear.
This reminded me of what songwriting is about ( I've been struggling lately).
Thanks for sharing.

Very interesting and instructive article!!!
There are drastic changes in nature that do not come from our hand, there are also changes that we do not see, subtle movements that happen without us noticing and, interestingly, there are also immovable and immutable people ... I would not call them blind but now go on with the song!!! Of love?

The melody is very catchy, easy to hum, it immediately gets in your head like when you were a kid and immediately learned to sing the stories @oorlab
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times
