Hanna's Departure
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

A frail yet gentle body, A beautiful child A beautiful mind
All of it so lovely, All of it to meet...
Certain Demise

Never an ounce of hope, In my blackened heart
But the sight of her, after a long day
Would lift it all away

A soft glow, Beneath my chest grows
When her voice, Dances to my ears
Ill tell you stories, Ill tell you tales

Ill let you hear everything
Save the horror
Of the battlefields

An endless ocean, A massive sky
I love the amazed expression
In your eyes

(The only reason, For me to be alive)

SOLO 1

A faraway land, Now close to home
From the words of my voice
To your mind and to your soul

You took it all in
Even knowing the outcome
Your certain, Inevitable end

Now that lay you hear, Motionless on your bed
Without a single movement or sign of life
I cant hold back my fears

(Why should she have to die?)

I wont give up
Though without movement, Without your starry eyes
Ill never let your memory go

Lay here Hanna, Just a little longer
Let me speak, My final story
My final tale for you

I know that you hear me
I can see it, The slightest gesture
A small gleam in your eye

(Followed by a tear)

Your off on your own, On your own journey
Through the clouds
Through Heaven, space and time

One day your parents, Will come to see you too
Race through the heavens eternally
Yes, ill be there too...

(Yes....Ill be there too?)

My final words, And my final lie
Hanna’s gone, And I breakdown...
...And cry...

Life is oh so precious, And life is oh so short
Cherish every moment
With all of your heart

Never let the memories go, And they shall never fade
Remember the ones you loved
To the end of your days

When I read these, I think of a small girl dying in a hospital bed with her family around her. Am I close? smile.gif

Incredibly close, the only thing you got wrong was the location, this takes place at the little girls parents Inn that they own.

Im glad you guessed it, makes me feel like i got the message perfectly right

If anyone cares to know, this came to me after playing the first hour of the new game "Lost Odyssey", perhaps the most beautiful game ever made.

The lyrics are good but I can't see them working in a song and being catchy. Good poetry I think but not really song like. Of course I can be proved wrong though. tongue.gif I'm currently doing some new lyrics for a new funk song. I will post them up when they're done.

It also could be that your just not too familiar with the type of music these lyrics are good to go wink.gif

I will be familiar. It will no doubt be in a prog style and I have about 400 prog albums. I just think those lyrics are better as a short story or poetry. There isn't a defining structure that would point towards a song. I'd like if The Uncreator created a song with these lyrics he posts as then we can all see how he would map these lyrics into the musical world. I like his lyrics a lot. Just want to see how they translate.

Probably not even close to prog, more like just acoustics throughout most of the song, the middle section that gets heaviers, then the remaining verse sung over some basic chord progressions, its nothing remotely complex.

I hear it all in my head, if i could sing without growling, and i had a mic, i would record vocals, but sadly.... sad.gif

I wish you'd record some of these sad.gif I bet they'd be good songs. You should turn this into a song. So you mean acoustic in what way though. Something like Tiamat - Do You Dream Of Me or not so dark?

It will seem dark im sure, i know that, im gonna probably use a low Open tuning, like Open C or something, And rearannge the lyrics a tiny bit to fit whatever rhythm is.

Yeah i wish i could record some of these, but im without a car right now, so the mic will have to wait, I got a small idea for the middle of this song in the uploads board, no vocals are supposed to be over it though, just something to build tension.

Those are good lyrics but when you mentioned it, immediately an acoustic dirge/ballad format came to mind, which would typically require longer lines to work, traditionally. Think "Skalds and Shadows" by Blind Guardian, it's written in couplets and the last phrase from the first line is the first phrase in the second line. I think that format would lend itself very well to a theme such as this.

The way it's written now though could make a killer sludge metal song, although it'd be quite long haha.

I dont think Sludge Metal quite fits the theme here laugh.gif

I know what you mean about Skalds and Shadows (great tune), but the way i hear it my head, i really like it, hopefully if i ever get a decent voice, or a singer with one, ill be bale to record it.

EDIT

Well the i have it typed it isnt quite how it would be sung, Two lines would probably be sung as one "Sentence", if that makes any sense.

Ill rearrange it....


EDIT2
Well thats as close as i can get the lyrics to how they will be sung, not quite how it will be, but closer than before.

I like your natural use of writing triplets here.

As far as the actual full set of lyrics go, your phrasing and writing is good but like so many of your pieces it just, for me, seemed to go from A to B, I dont think theres much to draw the attention back to a song like this or to make someone think once they've read this of a message you were perhaps getting at, my own opinion obviously, but if you look at some of the best poets, authors and lyricists they always leave you thinking after you've read something - be it about any particular issue at all. I just feel thats the one thing your writing lacks, and its a bit of a fatal flaw as far as lyrics are concerned I think smile.gif

Well to me, that kinda stuff is really only necessary when your trying to tell a message, this is simply a story, for one (hopefully) to enjoy. Nevertheless, My writing can always use improvement, so ill heed your advice wink.gif

It works better how you've rearranged it and makes sense now for the dirge/ballad format.
