HI, all:

It's a two for Thursday . . . a second offering on the same day. This is a collaboration with Christian Devienne--I think I've posted a prior collaboration or two with Christian on the board before. Christian wrote the music, and I wrote the lyrics and did the vocals. Hope you enjoy the listen!

My best to you all,

Deej

Here's the song:

BLUE SKY FALLING DOWN

Here are the lyrics:

Not a cloud in sky;
Not a speck in the blue—
so your wondering why
it feels so dark to you.
Faces all passing by
like there’s nothing new,
(not the sun, not the clouds, not the moon)
never raising their eyes
from their path on the ground,
to see your blue sky falling down.

A dead knock on the door;
a red mark on the moon.
A black cat cross the floor;
a sudden dawning of doom.
Like the careless goodbye
he let fly too soon,
(Just a word as he walked from the room)
with the tears in your eyes,
never hearing the sound
of your blue sky falling down.

Does it feel just like the fairy tale?
(The one you heard when you were a kid)
As I recall that didn’t end so well.

Not a cloud in the sky;
not a speck in the blue.
You still want to deny
what you always knew:
that his love was a lie,
and he was never true—
(Give a wave as he fades from view)
With your arms open wide,
raise your eyes from the ground—
and see your blue sky falling down.

Well written and well done.

There is some Lennon feeling sound in this melody.

Have fun!

Deej,

I really dug this! This song just really pulls you in. Clever write. I do have one sug that I think will enhance your background tags--record dups there, not harmony, just dups. This will IMO enhance those "answer tags."

Nice one!

Lovely song from you guys.
I really like the chord progressions and melody lines.
Vocals are great and that violin is the icing on the cake. grin

Super work fellas

Very nice. A thoughtful, satisfying lyric and a melody and arrangement that fit it very well. I enjoyed listening.

This is really, really good IMHO. I heard a Beatle vibe in it. The background parts could stand out with a dubbing of that track but even now they enhance the song beautifully. smile
