"Dreams" NEW

Here a new song of mine.Some of you have heard a rough demo of the song in the section Ideas.Recording could always be better I know.

https://soundcloud.com/a-fisch-1/dreams

Dreams

1) As far as your wings can fly
as often as you can try
catch your dreams
don?t let them go again
hold them in your heart
for the rest of your life

Chorus: Dreams are no secrets
dreams are for you and me
dreams from a wonderland
dreams from beginning to end
you only have to grap them
to get free

2) As much as a which could be
as far as your heart can see
dive into your dreams
measured from your thoughts
binded in this world
and don?t come back

Chorus: Dreams are no secrets....

3) Sometimes when your life
is not what it seems to be
you are may captured in a dream
don?t wake up don?t scream
don?t tell real life where you are
it?s may in the near
and not that far.

Chorus: Dreams are no secrets

? Words & Music by Alexander Fisch aka fischermans ?

Hope you like
Alexander

You are on a roll Alexander  ;D

I still think this could be faster , maybe its just me but I think this could be very upbeat , uplifting

But you could go the other way and make it a lament - have the lyrics and delivery contradicting each other

But not as it is because I am confused if its happy or sad  ;)

I like it a lot though - you are a great writer  :)

That is really nice, once again

i have some doubt about that first chord on dreams are no secret....sounds detuned somewhat to me

but once again, you succeed to create this special and intimate fisherman's atmosphere

nice, i hope you find also a very fitting, fuller arrangment / instrumentation for your songs. Is Wicked working on one of your songs? that Lalalala song? Would be nice to hear that, what he comes up with

keep the songs coming, Fish!

I think your singing on this particularly beautiful and the rest of the song is simply lovely. I love the chord change on the second line of each verse;  it is gorgeous. I certainly can't find anything to criticise. For me, what makes your songs so special is that they are unique and unlike everybody else and you haven't fallen into the trap of trying to tick all the boxes in terms of the songwriting rules. You just ignore all that and plough your own furrow. I hope your collaborations don't dilute the uniqueness of your material and it's delivery.

 hey Alexandera

 I agree with kaf on this when he said it could be upbeat
 yes I think it would be more catchy to the ear
 I did still enjoy it though

 good writing again,

                          tony.

@Andy
I also confused if the song is happy or sad and may it?s neither nor.But it?s definitely with a sackful off hope. ;) :D
Thank you for your words.
@Dutch
The first cord? May it is played with a dutch guitar. ;D ;D ;D But it?s possible.
Yes Paul is working on LaLaLaLa but I first have to do a stricter BTM recording. >:( He is more strict with me than you are. ;D

Thank you for this words.Means a lot.
I hope your collaborations don't dilute the uniqueness of your material and it's delivery.
You don?t have to be frighten I always have one tape with only voice and guitar. ;)
@Tony
I give it a try with the upbeat.Thank you. :D

Ha Fish,

now that Wicked is being an aweful drill sergant and making you play on a fixed BPM........while you are at it...... if you can send me a fixed BPM track one of these days, if you still would want that...i will make a Fisherman's dance track....

even though i am very convinced Monty is right, you should keep your very own style, but i am sure you will not loose that...so, just for fun, one dance track  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Very lovely...very you Alexander :) the lyrics in this one are particularly good and I too would be interested in hearing this one a little more upbeat to suit the feel of the lyrics, but it's lovely as is as well :) your vocals are excellent as always :) a thoroughly enjoyable listen :) :) CS

Hi Alexander.

Is it a reverb effect that is giving that soft pad-like background sound? I like it - creates a nice tension in the song.
Regarding the not sure if it's happy or sad - i think a foot in both camps works - a dream may make you feel happy, but there is always that grim reality on the outside. I'm sure most of us have been in a great dream, then woken and found ourselves in the real world -closed our eyes and tried to fall back in to that dream.
Vocal was as good as ever. It would be interesting to hear you do something uptempo just to hear how your voice changes.

Nice one.

Digger

Hey fellow mod  ;D

I love this track, some beautiful guitar, very chilled out vocal. I can really hear your accent in this one, I can't imagine how hard it must be to write and sing songs in a second language, respect for that  :)

I think it'd sound great with some subtle bass guitar underneath as the song progresses.

Good job yet again Alexander  :)
