Song #1 of Seth’s Song-a-Week project is here!
Yep, that’s right, it has begun. I have completed my first track for the Song-a-Week project for 2015. This one is called “Stars On the Pavement.”Right-click and select “Save as…”
This one is part of a series. I started writing some three-song-songs in which I made a long background on which to put my lyrics and melodies, then wrote three separate songs over the background. This could be likened to making a giant collage, cutting it into pieces and using the collage as a backdrop for three separate paintings. I’m very happy with how this one turned out. It just gets better and better as it goes. This month I will release the full series in three pieces. At the end of the musical series, I will do a remix of all the best pieces of the three and present a brand new track from the three. I will also be sending subscribers the full length version along with the short ones. This first track is a gift to everyone! The rest can be accessed by subscribers only. Click here to Subscribe.
Stars On the Pavement
Where are you going to, my god? When are we going to align?
I make a forest for you, path lined with wild flowers, took a million hours and a quadrillion dollars
I sing a chorus for you in the forest that I made. I use the birds to sing, the wind and everything, oh
I see you ride across the night sky, hand in a bottle, a message to everyone that you won’t let us down, no.
It’s not the end of the world, maybe the end of our humanity, but to be is neverending temporary
Maybe just a habit to be, maybe this is nothing to me . . .
I played my part, I made a forest on your land. I nurtured it, covered seeds in soil with my own hands
and when it’s time to go, and then I’m planted in the ground, the leaves and dust will play, and I will lay without a sound
There aren’t many, not many left of us 1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1
I see you ride across the night sky, hand in a bottle, a message to everyone that you won’t let us down.
Stars on the pavement, I’m pacing the waves of it traveling the speed of life which is faster than light.
The speed of life is faster than light.
