Blink


(Piano INTRO)

(FEMALE VOCALS SPOKEN)
Devastating truth
Shattering conscience
Disintegrating soul
Terminating life

(Drums start + Piano; FEMALE VOCALS CONTINUE)

Slow
Slow
Slowly
Slow
Slow
Steadily
Breathe in
Breathe out

(Instrumentals – 2 minutes)

(MALE VOCALS)
This pale face
Yes, this pale face
Trembles
In Fury (X2 ENTIRE SECTION)

(OVERLAPPING MUSIC)
You said nothing to me
You said nothing to no one! (X4 ENTIRE SECTION)

(Instrumentals – 40 seconds)

Tell me
Where

Where do I look for you now?!
Where do I look for the truth now?! (X2 ENTIRE SECTION)

(DRUM BRIDGE OVERLAP)
Where! Where!
Tell me where

You sick bastard!
This did not need to end like this!

(All instruments stop except Guitar strokes)

You poor soul
This
Did not need to
End like this

(Piano Bridge)
(Piano + Strings)

(FEMALE VOCALS SPOKEN)
Devastating truth
Shattering conscience
Disintegrating soul
Terminating life

Slow
Slow
Slowly
Slow
Slow
Steadily

Calm down
Calm down now

Breathe in
Ah!

(WHISPER - MALE VOCALS)
Give me a name
Show me a sign

(SING)
Blink, if you can hear me (ECHO - EXTRO)

a shouting, a pleading. then taming, gentling. seems familiar. wish I could hear the music. I like the rises and falls. Good job, AJ-still haven't got to your tag. so little time. but won't forget~Rick

Brosreview said...

@Rikkij - Thanks a lot!!! Took a while but the emotions came out well, I reckon. Good to know you think so too. Take your time over the tag. No rush!!!

Hey AJey,
So much loved the following piece:

"Give me a name
Show me a sign

Blink, if you can hear me"


Just a blink from you was enough,
to acknowledge that hearty stuff

Good one!!

Brosreview said...

@sudharm baxi - Thank you!!! Glad you like this one.

Viji said...

WOW...the stealthy climb...you have latched on to varied emotions, climax at the beginning and softening towards the middle and desperation at the end..

a fierce wave, when you said:

"Where! Where!
Tell me where
You sick bastard!
This did not need to end like this!"

the tide changes - the gentle/soft lapping:

"Give me a name
Show me a sign
(SING)
Blink, if you can hear me"

nice one Ajey... enjoyed it immensely...

always a pleasure to read and comment your songs:)

Walker said...

Brosreview said...

@•bLue-eyed sOuL• - Hey there, thank you!!! I hope your exams went well.

Umm, yea, there is some error on blogger. Well, you could do this - stop following me and then add yourself again to the followers list. That refreshes the list.

Good luck with that!!!

Woman in a Window said...

Shit. Those lyrics are ones to move and acuse. They work perfectly in their simplicity. I'm glad for the calming at the end.

Brosreview said...

@Woman in a Window - Yea, they are quite powerful even though they are simple. Thank you!!!

Abbey said...

Cynthia said...

I love how you echo breathing in
your song R. The lines are heartbreaking, while the style
is sensous - very intriguing
combination, which will make this
one unforgettable.

Brosreview said...

@Cynthia - Coming from you means a lot to me. Thank you!!!

Khaled KEM said...

Hi Ajey,

The way you put your lyrics make them felt physically as you are following through.
The choice of sections and cuts are very smart. I guess you had some kind of tune in your mind while composing it.
As usual impressive!

Brosreview said...

@Khaled KEM - Oh yes sageeq', a lot of thought has gone to the structuring of this piece. I am glad you noticed it.

Thanks a lot!!!

Meena said...

Powerfully depressing - it is effective cause I feel it takes you back to a dark place.

Funny how pain produces such good work.

Brosreview said...

@Meena - Thanks a lot!!!

Diya said...

I would not like to comment on the song, would rather like to hear it... seemed very interesting to me.
BDW the slow whispering rhythmic progression in which it progresses is really interesting. Number of words are very few, but you have conveyed the situation so precisely through them... the situation seems to be full of mystery...!! Ghosts Ajey, ha ha :)

Brosreview said...

@Diya - Thank you!!! Ghosts, eh? Interesting!

Strawberry Girl said...

A battle with emotion, fighting off feelings which normally are hidden under the surface. Fighting for control, for release, and control... I love it Ajay!! ;D

Brosreview said...

@SG - Yes! Thank you!!!

thoughts said...

Brosreview said...
