Revealed in silence, kissed by stars… Song 241

Today’s song was slowly conceived and executed. I started by composing a string-quartet instrumental, but got tired of the composition almost immediately. However, I still finished it and then reversed the track and added loads of delay and reverb and it can be heard in the background of today’s song. Give it a listen:

 

Song 241: “Your River”

 

 

Revealed in silence, kissed by stars
We’re not alone in the mists
Concealed in the iron chains

Take me down your river
Drown me while I sleep
Sinking unforgiven
By memories I keep

Chased into glory, retold by believers
All I’m told to return in kind
I just don’t have the time

Take me down your river
Drown me while I sleep
Sinking unforgiven
By memories I keep

I am sleeping, I am gone

Take me down your river
Drown me while I sleep
Sinking unforgiven
By memories I keep

I just don’t have the time
