Hi all,

Here's my new single, written for my beautiful partner who sometimes has difficulty sleeping. I hope you enjoy it. smile



LYRICS:

Close your eyes
And hold the night
Sleep here
Iíll keep near
Lara, my dear

Dream so deep
And be in peace
No more fear
For all your years
Lara, my dear

Now, wake in light
And take off in flight
A new day is here
Your way is clear
Lara, my dear

So, close your eyes...

©2019 Philip Marino

Phillip,

This is special and beautiful! I loved the building arrangement, great melody--so peaceful. I would like to hear a middle harmony on the last vs. I could see Simon & Garfunkle putting some soft harmony to this song. A real pleasant listen!

Hello Philip,

Really nice tune and your vocal delivery sounds emotional and heartfelt and fits the lyrics very well. I enjoyed listening to this.

I think some high soft harmonies would make this even more soothing...

Incredibly beautiful lullaby that expresses your love for your cherished partner. rather then put me to sleep it stimulated creative thoughts in my head, the gentleness and vocal expressiveness work so well.

Hi Tony,

I have zero idea what happened. Some preference about embedding got clicked off (not by me!) for some reason. I think it's good to go again...

Oh yea', that's gorgeous! Definitely begging for some harmony! "off in flight" comes in a tad late, but the only reason itís noticeable is because everything else is so perfect and sickening sweet Lol. Yea', you should seriously consider a brighter production of this with harmony! NICE! smile

I enjoyed this very much for all the reasons the others have mentioned already. I liked the lift in intensity just before 2 minutes in and the very spare use of piano towards the end. Simple and heartfelt. I agree that harmonies would make it more special still.
