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

Amber Dreams

This song was created for Game of Bands round 121 : "No Theme"

Lyrics:

Intro:
(Spoken) Hey baby… I was looking back through things.
Looking back through faded pictures….
Looking back through memories…

Part 1 00:21 (Fun, reflective, happy)
I remember looking down at you
You open up your eyes and lookin’ up at me
Just sittin’ lookin’ at the photgraphs
Of you looking back… of you looking back at me.

00:41 I remember all the smiles we used to share,
Carefree and laughing, you bouncin’ on my knee
Just lookin’ back on all the fun we had,
Day-dreams and joking,
Pretending that we drank tea

01:00 I remember looking down at you
You open up your eyes and lookin’ up at me
Just sittin’ lookin’ at the photographs
Of you looking back… of you looking back at me.


Interlude: 01:20 (Spoken, kinda sad?)
Yeah, I got these pictures
Old box of polaroids I pull out every night
From next to the gideon’s bible…

Part II: 01:42 (More soulful than part one)
Every night I put you back into my drawer
And blink away all the thoughts making me blind.
Amber dreams find the space you held before
I fall asleep with your laughter in my mind.

02:06 (On a different beat, and in a different key)
I wake up in the morning, everything looks grey
I check my messages but there’s nothing to say
Punch another clock and throw my life away
Just counting down until the next visitation day

02:27 (back into the original beat structure)
Every night I put you back into my drawer
And blink away all the thoughts making me blind.
Amber dreams find the space you held before
I fall asleep with your laughter in my mind.
Amber dreams find the space you held before
I fall asleep with your laughter in my mind.
I fall asleep with your laughter in my mind.
[Exit]
