Your Songs

Your Songs is sort of a collaboration. Most of the lyrics were written by a friend as a poem to me in a letter. She was at some theater camp and was not having a good time and we were corresponding by mail.  I decided to put the words to music.

Your Songs

Your songs are icy cold and lonely
You songs are filled with surf and gritty sand
And the memories of a distant land

Your songs are icy cold and lonely
Your songs are filled with swirling imagery
Of windmills and Don Quixiote

I watched the waves
I saw your songs wash upon the beach
I watched the horizon
I heard your music

I picked up a pure white shell and it was you
And in the shell I heard music that was you

The lazy lying
The to often I lay lingering
In the shadow of a feeling
That I had for someone once
Pick up the loose ends
You know that you have not
You have to stop this wishing for what you haven't got.

The lazy lying
The to often I lay lingering
In the shadow of a feeling
That I had for someone once
Pick up the loose ends
You know that you have not
You have to stop this wishing for what you haven't got.

Your songs are icy cold and lonely.
Your songs are icy cold and lonely.
Your songs are icy cold and lonely.
Your songs are icy cold and lonely.

Has a wonderful Emerson, Lake, and Palmer meets the Byrds feel to it, IMHO.
Very nice....a biting lyric with a lamenting melody.
Good stuff!

Hola @CGHound

Very beautiful song, I love the lyrics, the words are deep, poetic, full of soul and the music envelops them with the calm that melody and acoustic guitars give.
I like when the strings appear from time to time.

Nice work

First impression- Nice clean mix with lots of space in it. The drums had a few changes but I would say that's probably the only thing. They sound wonderful just need a little more change IMO. The playing is great! The guitar was very slightly out of tune. Not by much. Your voice fits this all perfectly.
I wish I could write lyrics like this. Those are great lyrics.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you.

I think the out of tune guitar was caused the chorus effect I used on it. 

The drums could be a bit more interesting.
