This song was a self-imposed challenge. I would not write in 4/4. Its in 6/8. Not common for electronica. Also I would not write using a normal scale. I used Phrygian mode on G-- so sort of G minor with an extra A flat (so closely related to E flat major too). The lyrics were dashed off this morning in the interest of establishing a melody and a mood. I welcome someone who wants to collaborate and write new lyrics.
It Sounds Absurd (Hope)
We walk these streets, we shiver in the dark
No matter how hard we try, we have not made our mark
It’s getting late, is it too late for us?
Have we wasted too much time, have we missed the bus?
Just give me time to say one more word
No matter how much it sounds absurd…
Bright sun shining, gentle breeze blowing in the park
Patience earned, we have finally made our mark
The day’s still early, we’ve got the time
Our voices cascading as if in a rhyme
Are we at the beginning or at the end?
Are we still lovers, are we still friends?
Just give me a moment to say just one more word
No how matter much it sounds absurd…
