Lyrics
I had a vision of a house on the hill,
One shattered window with blood on the sill.
It's where he kept you, your wings frozen still.
Your face was sinking, as your eyes tried to swim for it.

What happened to those eyes, the ones that lit my way?
The ones that gazed with love upon this hapless judge?
I could have reached for you. I could have stopped it all.
Instead I pushed you. You're still falling.

You said love would keep us alive.
Somehow only you survived.
I'm not broken. We're just frozen,
Waiting for the sun to melt your wings, lovely.

There's nothing left here, just the mess that we're in.
There's no penance, no forgiveness of sins. Nothing.
Swear that we've been here, and I know where it goes.
I'm doomed to lose your heart, to fall back to the start.

Will you be by my side when the sails are catching fire?
When the masthead is the only thing left of it?
Say that you'll take my side when they come for you this time.
That the love you gave wasn't stolen.

You said love would keep us alive.
Somehow only you survived.
I'm not broken. We're just frozen,
Waiting for the sun to melt your wings.

Say that we're alright, doll,
Waiting for another sunny day.
And it's not like turning the lights out now
Will make this go, make this go away.
Make it go, make it go away.

(Say we're alright, lovely. Tell me I'm not starting over.)

Survived mix...
This filled out rather well, I think. I'm perpetually tweaking the mixes on all of them, but it's nice to know that I'm pretty close with this one. Thanks for your tireless support, Feter.

You have done a number of things very well in this piece. The song itself is catchy, soulful, and genuine. All the performances are excellent. This is a great effort, and I look forward to hearing more from you. Thanks for sharing your music with MJ.

...and that's all I could hope for. I did a few takes on the vocals to get it to a place where it felt more real. I usually sing a lot of mumble speak into the mic before I write the lyrics, and then when I go back and add the words, I usually like the feel of the mumble better! Glad it retained some soul. That's a high compliment, Sigmund. Thanks.

That is a pretty
melody. I usually ask to see the lyrics, so I can follow along. These sound well thought out and the vocal is smooth and emotional. I really like this. Nice. Thank you.

Hey Char
I've definitely got to let everyone in on the lyrics. Coincidentally, I'm writing them down as we speak. I seem to have lost the text file that had them, or I named the file something weird - I'm not very organized. :) I'm always nervous about my vocals, so it's good to hear that people are enjoying and responding to them. Thanks so much for your comments.

holy shit
Strong lyrics in this one, which is rare in most of the music produced by anyone, ever. Coupled with the wonderful melody and your voice (which defies description), this is the best thing I've hear din quite a while.

wow.
