The Black Mirror (GHOST SONGS CHALLENGE))))

I am very happy to participate in this challenge,  :pompom: I had a lot of fun and I came out of a small hole in which I had fallen,  :(
autumn and its leaves ...

The lyrics are metaphorical, like almost everything I write, and although I understand a lot about ghosts, because they are there, I wanted to describe a story that was not personal and could be entertaining.
I know that it is not very scary but it has its mystery. I hope you like it or at least have a good time.
As I always do, I have created a video trying to fit the story and I think I have achieved it.
Thank you!!!





Finally the time comes
to look for you in my mirror

Finally the time comes
to look for you in my mirror

How many moons,
how many suns
between your time
and mine

but there are no hours here
in the reflections side

but there are no hours here
in the reflections side


I already feel the cold
that precedes your spectre
and leaves with no movement
the flame of the white candles

the white candles

Cold, cold, cold heart
Cold, cold, cold eyes
Cold perdition

old, cold, cold heart
Cold, cold, cold eyes
Cold perdition
Cold perdition


Sounds clock, sounds now
opens the door
to the limbo

Sounds clock, sounds now
hook us up
with your needles
do not stop this soft dancing
even if we become ice

Cold, cold, cold heart
Cold, cold, cold eyes
Cold perdition

Cold, cold, cold heart
Cold, cold, cold eyes
Cold perdition
Cold perdition
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Eerie... creepy even... but I’m sure you meant that.

Nice groove... especially nearer the end.

@Mora Amaro La Loba  - ooh that sounds good, and looks good too. Wonderful detail, and the basse sounds broad and then guitar and vocals really lift it up. Must listene again tomorrow to follow the story properly. For now - thumbs up!

@Mora Amaro La Loba Yes, it quite captures a ghostly atmosphere. The colours were well chosen in the clip. The candles work quite nicely. What really sets this apart from other work I've heard from you is the guitar. Dark and biting. Good!

Well done indeed.

you've created a wonderfully dark and mysterious atmosphere here! The guitar cuts through with morbid authority, and interacts nicely with your rich smokey vocals. Good luck for this challenge!

I don't know @Mora Amaro La Loba ... I think it's a scary and dark production (well I scare easily).  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::headphone::

Like you said, the lyrics are to be interpreted and I like that "feature" a lot. It's means the lyrics is a canvas (for the mind) and it opens for different interpretations with each listen and the video gives it an extra dimension. I'm still very impressed with how you do the songs (in your very recognizable style, which I like... reminds me of a Swedish artist called Di Leva...) and the video and music are great.

The bells (with effects), the guitar and the organ are all great additions to this arrangement. Your vocals are solid and narrated very well througout the song, sort of a personal guide in the mystery or dark place visited.

Great song! Best of luck in the challenge to you  :pompom: :)
