Exploring V2

Description
The lyrics for this one came to me coming home from another day trip exploration with my wife. We both like to get out when we can and explore anywhere in an hour’s drive of home. This being crowded little England that gives you hundreds of possibilities in any direction! The music started out as a simple guitar strum along but then somehow morphed into this crazy complex performance which is about as far “out there” as I have been so far……exploring new ideas for songs and it was great fun to create.

Lyrics
Exploring
Its another small adventure
Heading somewhere new
What’s just round the corner
Let’s find another view
We can choose, what we do

Out little explorations
Enjoy the country air
Looking to the future
And the memories
We can share if we dare

Far enough
To be somewhere different
Close enough
To be home for tea
Far enough
For a little adventure
It only works
If you come with me

Country churches
And little towns
Secret woodlands
And ancient grounds
Where we found each other

Ham and chips
One from the keg
Back a different way
On the homeward leg

Far enough
To be somewhere different
Close enough
To be home for tea
Far enough
For a little adventure
It only works
If you come with me

I like the movement in this- has an energy to it. I like the way you build it, too. Clever and entertaining vocals. Sounds like a fun trip! Delightful.

Enjoyed with kudos
Hopefully "Experimental" doesn't scare people away. This was a great listen which brought memories from excursions like these. I kind of miss them...

Thanks and take care,
Henke

Different!
Hi Mark

Very impressed with this. Love the setting. It's one of those songs for me where the music says something different from the lyrics. The simple travelogue becomes something slightly menacing and creepy with that great orchestration. It feels to me like the typical sort of horror story that uses a very ordinary and positive setting to start with and then slowly introduces a sinister subtext.

That's the way I hear it at least!

Good stuff, and pretty original, I'd say.

Lyric from the Country
"Share if we dare." Then into a wonderful change that goes far enough, then further! How original? Very much creative and engaging.
If you had a set character and a whimsey aided story this would be a proper commercial property.
Worldly and cheeky, yet at the heart of it the work is impeccably English.

Excellent
Great setting for a song.

Very different from what I expected!

Really well put together. I loved all the changes. Despite how different they were it was seemless.

One of the best songs on here I've heard for some time :-)

Cheers

Adventurous music!
It's great that this is an adventure into new musical realms for you as it is a song about adventures. And it's got tons of details in it that meant I had to listen three times to take it all in. A lovely statement of the adventurous spirit that makes us want to see things we have never seen before.

It's amazing how the mind works sometimes, and how allowing yourself to roll with an idea can come up with something quite special. "Out there" it is, but very creative and impressive too. I kept hearing Queen in the falsetto bits, but the whole thing was quite original in concept and realisation.
A very interesting post.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Yeah, you have a lot going on in here and it is all good Mark. I listen to songs like this and think "how the hell did they come up with this?" Congratulations. Nice to hear some optimistic lyrics too. Some of your more reflective songs had me a little concerned for a while back there.
