Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Fading

This song was created for Game of Bands round 91 : "Acoustic"

Lyrics:



You said I’d find you waiting
You said our time was over
Seems summer now is fading
The leaves are falling round us
Watch mountains start to crumble
See buildings turned to rubble
I think the day is failing
I think you’re falling away

A day I tried to capture
Another fleeting snapshot
Water I held in my hands
Try to hold it here forever
I think the light is failing
I’ll be nostalgic waiting like forgotten dreams

I know we saw him watching
Him wishing once to hold you
Ground opened on the mountain
His distant halls are waiting
Step softly in the chariot
You won’t be there for too long

Don’t touch a single thing there
Don’t give into desire
Water I held in my hands
Try to hold you here forever
I think the light is failing
I’ll be nostalgic waiting like forgotten dreams

She made single mistake
Gave in to that temptation
Felt chains around her ankles
The darkness claustrophobic
The weight of stone above her
A loss of light she once knew
I think the cold is coming
I think the light is fading

[Exit]
