The house on the hill
on: December 18, 2020, 12:52:51
Hello kitcheners!
It's been really a tough year... at last I succeeded in recording my new song, “The house on the hill”.
Happy holidays to everybody, stay healthy and safe!  :)  :)

https://soundcloud.com/gabrivux/the-house-on-the-hill

Leaves are falling, sky turns to grey
sitting lonely, I call your name
Your rusty armor now lies on the chair,
Oh naked warrior, you're hiding somewhere

From my window I stare at the sea,
the beach is empty, silent like me
Waves of emotions bring to the shore
forgotten feelings, hard to ignore

Oh we were riding the free wind
shining in the sun
Was it all just a dream?
When I awoke you were gone!

I look at the house on the hill,
fading in twilight
My hope still lingers on
unwilling to give up the fight

I banged my head against your wall,
trying to break through
I thought my heart was strong enough,
so I let it bleed for you

Unequal love dried up my soul
like the desert sand,
Yet I still hold your thorny rose
like a relic in my hand

The distant sound of a violin
echoes in the night
Shadows dance out of sight,
ready to swallow me up

Someone should cut off the knot
and let me breathe again
the smell of you in the air
when I walk in the house on the hill
Gabri Vux

My heart always jumps up when you post something new.
This song is no exception.
Layer after layer, you build it up beautifully.
Better a house on the hill than a fool on the hill.
Needless to say I love it @gabrivux !!!

Kind regards, Gus

Nice!!! @gabrivux

at first i found the break, the drop back and the rhythm changes (slow downs) very big, but you did it and from there i was completely drawn in

ultimately cool songwriting @gabrivux   :yes: :yes: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

very, very nice  ::headphone:: ::headphone::
me, myself, and Pie

Hello @gabrivux

It has been a pleasure to listen to you and to the  song.

It is beautiful, it has everything good and has been a very beautiful trip that has filled me with warm emotions and has put a nostalgic smile on my mouth.

In addition, the lyrics are very rich in images, I loved this line
"the beach is empty, silent like me"

Very good work. Muy buena canción!!!

Merry Christmas and stay safe

Mora

Hi Gabri,

 I see the Souncloud trolls got to you too trying to get you to buy likes :)

Man I don't know what to say..........I think this song is simply wonderful. Just a top notch production that deserves a whole lot more exposure. SC doesn't seem to be a good place for exposure lately would you agree?

I hope you're happy with this tune. If it were mine I would be.
I hope to hear more of this good stuff from you!

Hola @gabrivux
I forgot to highlight this precious line so I do it now.

"Yet I still hold your thorny rose
like a relic in my hand"

It's powerful!!!

Feliz Navidad

Mora

Thank u @Timothy Smith, I'm glad you like the song. It is my favourite one by far :-)
I usually post my songs on Youtube and Soundcloud at the same time. You're right about SC, I agree
I hope to make some more good stuff, at least I'll try! ;-)

Thank u @Mora Amaro La Loba,  that's my favourite line!! <3
Feliz Navidad

Very well done lyrics and pretty production that builds up this nice dreamy but melancholic scenery!
I enjoyed to listen! ::thumb::

No news from the north west @gabrivux
Just a small message to tell you that I’ve been back for another listen.

And I like it more and more.
Keep on keeping on, said Curtis Mayfield. No one knew what it meant but I took it as a support to keep going.
And stay safe.
Also important.
Kind regards, Gus

This is like a journey...The guitar and the poem like beginning...then you take me to a carol King vibe, which was pure ecstasy.  Don't know hw much of a market for this there is these days,  but damn this is awesome...
