Painful Day! ( it sure was)

This is a song based on my own story. It?s about my father that was killed by his best friend! It's been a long time and I always wanted to write a song about it, without going into details to much!  Writing music is like an exhaust for me.  It?s about how I felt as a kid at the age of fifteen. Wasn?t always easy for my mother and sisters as well! But some words that he told me kept floating around. He always said to me... I love you and! Following with a kiss on the eye! He just knew that he wouldn't die as an old man! From above I?ll hear your sound!

Thanks for listening!

Lyrics.


On that painful day

Couplet
A normal day. Got out of school, as the doorbell rang. Two man in blue.
Hey little man is your mother home? Well, she?s inside but on the phone!
Can you call her please, we have to talk. Took of their hats, and it went dark!
I wish that I could change it all. But death is irrevocable.

Pre ? Chorus
My mother?s eyes said it all! It hit me like a wrecking ball!


Chorus

This little boy got afraid! On that painful day!
This little boy has broken down. His feet nailed to the ground!
This little boy got afraid.  On that painful day!
 
Couplet
I use to be this funny guy! The rise and shine that always tries!
But now I?m stuck with heavy thoughts! I realize, life is a fraud!
Like a naked child I wanna hide. I tell myself! It?s all a lie.
But now he?s like a renegade, this little boy that got afraid. 
Like a renegade, this little boy that got afraid.
Like a renegade, this little boy that got afraid.   
 

Couplet

There?s nothing like a gentle touch! From the man you love so much!
Our memories will remain. As a bandage for the pain!
And his voice echo?s trough my head!  Don?t do things I would regret.
Even when I?m gone, I?ll be around. From above I?ll hear your sound!

Pre - Chorus
My mother?s eyes said it all! It hit me like a wrecking ball!


Chorus

This little boy got afraid! On that painful day!
This little boy has broken down. His feet nailed to the ground!
This little boy got afraid.  On that painful day!

Hey Bou, beautiful song, it's lyrics are quite direct imo, but I like that in this context (only a guitar and voice). Hits me deep in my heart, and sounds really authentic. Respect buddy! MM
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

Hey thnx guys for the kind words.

Marti...

I know what you mean but I did not wanted to be overly poetic! Sometimes you just have to let the words go as they go!

The problem with these thing is... There is so much to say! I just wanted to embody how I felt and how certain things went that painful day!

Bless guys

Bou

PS Check new link in the topic! I had to make an little adjustment at the end

Hey Bou, yes that's what I mean! For this particular song it's just beautiful how the lyrics (that I would usually perceive as 'a bit too direct' when I first read them) melt together with the delicate and beautifully played guitar and your very authentic voice. Very nice singing Bou! Top class work buddy, it made me shiver! MM

This is so beautiful Bou...you nailed the emotion you must have felt so perfectly :(  it certainly pulled at my heart strings  :'(

Beautiful guitar and vocals, and I think the lyrics are most suiting  :)

I'll leave the lyrics out of the equation partly because I'm not so much into lyrics anyway but also because I'm not a very verbal person in my native tongue when it comes to emotions and trying to express anything in a foreign language is next impossible.
Music on the other hand... this is a very good song but there are one thing that leverage it above good and into great (and beyond) for me: the vocals!!
The lead vox is sooo good, the backing are even better and the few place e.g. "on that painful day" where you have them hard panned L/R for just that phrase is so good. Mix/production is superb.
As MM would say: respect man!
Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

@ Jambrains

Thank you for the great compliment! Gives a man hope in what he does! I agree with you. Express your feelings in another language remains difficult! I just write what comes to me and if something is wrong, I change it in a later stage. Think it also has worked out so well, because it really is my own story. Then you can put the emotion in really well!

Thnx again!

@ MM

unfortunately a little delay. Can not find a studio that wants to invest. So the end of June we have a meeting! Let you know. Thanks for your interest. Peace! Bou

Loved this song. You have a new fan. I admire you guitar play, so tastefully done. Simple and elegant. Your vox is exceptional, but already knew that from your last song.

Keep em coming mate, beautiful stuff.
