Description
Hello Macjammers! It seems that I only ever have tunes to post around February Album Writing Month! Here's my first tune. I'll probably cut a verse out and add an instrumental bridge but can't do that now - I've got more songs to write.

Lyrics
How this all began
Is hard to understand knowing how it ends.

What was supposed to be
is not making sense to me so I just pretend

when did the river change its course?
when did the shadows disappear?
where am I supposed to go from here?

Now that the magic's gone
I don't know where I belong
There's still fruit on the vine
and soon it will make a bitter wine

Nothing seems to matter much
now that I'm so out of touch
it seems like day is night
and up is down and left is right

How is there rain without a cloud?
How are the seasons out of place?
There's nothing left to be erased

Now that the magic's done
There's no telling who has won
I'm stranded in the woods
And I'd chop these trees down if I could

Now that the laughing's died
I'm no longer occupied
first time to second guess
where to start to clear this mess

So this is the first of ten
from an album you have to write in one month? If you can keep it up it will be an amazing album. This sounds very good to my old ears for something written under pressure. Rock on man, and good luck with the challenge.

Interesting lyrics, good vocal style. I like the way you build the instrumentation. Clear mix. Good luck with the project - it's started well!

Giovanni!
What a flash from the not so distant past to see your name pop up! How are you doing? (Still sniffing your way through the world?)

I dig the effects you put on your vocals, brought me back to 70s art rock. The rock section reminded my of Godspell, full of innocence and hope. Your organ solo is very cool. (The way it is L-R panned, with a lower register in the left ear, is different than anything else in the mix; consider imaging them closer together? Not sure.) I hope the lyrics aren't taken from recent real life, cuz I'd prefer you to be happier! But, nonetheless, great to hear from you! I'm looking forward to more stuff.

Tobin!
Yeah... Sadly, haven't had the time to frequent MacJams lately! Good to hear from you and thanks for the comment about the organ solo. I didn't notice it, but I didn't mix in headphones so maybe I missed it. I'll have to take a closer look. And no, fortunately this song is not at all about me!

Even without Hammond
and Mellotron this has a 70s prog-rock vibe. Much enjoyed. Great songwriting.
