Falling Star
on: December 10, 2019, 21:56:02
Hello kitcheners!
this is my last song, Falling Star... it's about a mind swallowed by the dark, and the struggle to come back to life again.

https://soundcloud.com/gabrivux/falling-star

Lyrics

Old star of the TV screen, you're carrying back the days
That blew my mind away...

Staring at the ceiling while time keeps movin' on
and all my friends are gone
I look in the mirror at a face that's slowly fading,
I wait for the night's cold embrace to soothe my sorrow

Emptiness inside me is creeping in my head
as I lie tired in my bed,
heavy like a stone, frozen to the bone,
Lord, I feel so all alone!
A ghost out of time and out of space, behind the window pane
No one to hear me when I call, there's no one to catch me when I fall

Falling star, fading in the dark
this lonely night is tearing you apart,
Falling star, you know I'm trying hard
to fill the hole in your soul with the beat of my heart

A young castaway lost at sea,
I beg the stars to shine their light on me!
Clung to my dogged will to live,
I dream of a shore
where I can rest my soul
I'll search for diamonds in the sand
and I'll go ahead, proud of my golden scars

Old star of the TV screen, you're carrying back the days...
They blew my mind away
Gabri Vux

This is really good @gabrivux . Well structured and performed.

I love the format of piano and voice as it really allows your wonderful vocals to have the stage. Your voice is so powerful and rich, especially in this register. I was hearing Carole King, especially in that hook chorus when you introduced those excellent harmonies.

Thank u Leonard!, you're really kind!  :)  I'm glad you like the format of piano and voice... it was the only possible  choice given the nature of the song. And you really made me a very big compliment... Carole King is one of my favorite ones!    :) :)


Thank u Gus!  :)
ps. Nice is nice!  ;)

A beautiful vocal @gabrivux ; clear and confidant with emotion still present.
The solo piano is a good fit ( just a thought- I`m a big fan of piano/cello ballads so I could hear than instrument coming in after the bridge).
Harmonies and slightly more upbeat melody on the bridge are gorgeous.
Very well done! :pompom: ::thumb::

Thank Robert, i appreciate a lot!  :)  :) :) I'm glad you like the solo piano. As for the cello, at the beginning I thought about putting strings on the bridge, then I decided to keep only piano and accordion

hi @gabrivux

This is very impressive. I like the sparseness of vocals and piano (plus something that could be an accordian?)

It's a strong melody and you have a very strong voice.

It's not the genre of song I would normally listen to but I really enjoyed it.

cheers

This sounds great, the track has a really nice flow to it!

I would have preferred a nice concert hall sound rather than the intimate room sound, but that's just my own preference.

I was undecided, then I chose the second one, I thought it was right for the mood of the song.
