Night on Autumn street
It's strange, I, nearly, allways write songs in pairs. Anyone else around here that do that to?
This is a bluesy song. It's very hard, but fun, to sing. All suggestions on how to improve it are appreciated.
Night on Autumn Street
A cherry tree in bloom.
Flowers are dancing pure and white.
But here on Autumn Street
electrical light makes it look flat.
I was destined
to leave my home, my family and friends.
Now the're pale memories
some without names, some without faces.
I'm a stranger
whereever I go.
Like a sailor
with no haven to call home.
nobody knows me anymore.
Mine was this destiny
to sail away on this sea of time.
But in my dreams
I'm still a brother, a son and a friend.
People around here
do strange things I don't understand.
But to them
it makes sense. I'm not like them
Night has fallen.
Oh mine! It's cold and dark.
There's noone here
to kiss good night. I'll go to sleep alone.
I thought the flow and imagery on this piece was terrific
The last verse is really well written :wink:
I can't write just one song or even two I just write lyrics / lines then collate them into songs , some take hours others take weeks
Not only am I a senior citizen
I'm now a bloody senior member
Are you people trying to tell me I'm old or what ?
