Long Distance Friends
on: June 08, 2019, 00:59:34
Hey everyone! It's been a long while since I've last joined. Hope everyone is doing great and writing a ton of songs. I wanted to share a video of a song I wrote a while back called Long Distance Friends, hope you like it!



Lyrics:

I dreamt about you yesterday
Wait I think with you suits it better
But there I knew
That everything was happening in my sleep

I felt the need to say it
That we were stuck in this fake living
You smiled and laughed
Then made me forget it for a while

That's why I get sad when the alarm
Sounds and the morning light
Hits my face then I realize it was all in my head
you are far away


Will you ever forget me
I hope my songs make that seem crazy
Cause time somehow
Is creating something that looks like love

That's why I get sad when the alarm
Wakes me up from that
Dream of a space where you and I can be so much more than
Long distance friends

I don't mind heights
So I'll take a flight
When you hear my heart
Hope you like my sound
But for now


But for now I get sad when the alarm
Wakes me up from that
Dream of a space where you and I can be so much more than
Long distance friends

That's very nice @Matu - really good lyrics and a great theme to write and sing about.

The video is excellent as well and the different camera angles really make a difference as it stops it being just a head on shot for the whole song.

Good vocals and guitar picking as well.

Great job!

cheers

Hi @Matu Tiemersma

The guitar arpeggio you use on this track is perfect for a song like this.
The use of a hypnotic pattern can draw the listener into the moment so they focus on the lyrics.

Good Job

This is a seriously good song and you present it with a wonderfully emotive performance. I really like your style and your sound.
