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

She Walked in Admiration

This song was created for Game of Bands round 21 : "Epic"

Lyrics:

You know you never knew her
Little traces on the floor
Land mines, fallen spaces
Gather ghosts and admirations

She burned the night down every day
Stacking up the wooden dead
And the fire stripped off small pieces
A crown of ashes in her hair
Flecks of ornamentation
Mapping destinations
Underneath her nails

A life once led to smithereens
A voice but all bereft
Black ribbons tie the tongue that rings
The last unknown left
Tell me now, tell me now
Tell me now the rest

She walked in admiration
Parting kisses in the snow
Bare feet blue with frozen footprints
Icicles glittering in her eyes
A ragged coat of stitches
Hiding endless riches
In the blanket of her stare

I know you never knew her
Little echoes warp the air
Splinters and ricochets
Pierce in unexpected places

A life once led to smithereens
A voice but all bereft
Black ribbons tie the tongue that rings
The last unknown left
Tell me now, tell me now
Tell me now the rest

She rode the ripples of the beast
Cutting waves with lengths of rope
In a wake of great proportion
A laugh laden full of pearls
Slivers of the sunlight
Tracing where the moon might
Later drink its fill

A life once led to smithereens
A voice but all bereft
Black ribbons tie the tongue that rings
The last unknown left
Tell me now, tell me now
Tell me now the rest

Tell me how
Yes, tell me how
Tell me how to rest
[Exit]
