Wandering in time


(Instrumentals – 45 seconds)

I walk alone, hiding from the shadows in the dark
I see the light without an end, the limitless light
In the quest, to see what I am
I take shelter under the tree of life

While darkness covers the light
And, swallows all your might
Look under the three pillars of time

Banished today, thrown into these
Five worlds
I hover and hiss around my
Black bride
In the night I hold
Vengeance by my hand
To burn the shadow

(Instrumentals – 2 minutes)

While darkness shall cover the light
And, swallow all my might, I’ll
Look under the three pillars of time
Darkness shall cover the light
Forbidden from the garden, forever, I am
Wandering in time

I should not have provoked
The night in the day
The sun hides
The cloud cries
What have I done?
My circle is incomplete
What have I done?

(Guitar solo)
(Guitar + Keyboard duo)
(Instrumentals – 2 minutes)

I am burning the shadow
That follows me

While darkness shall cover the light
And, swallow all my might, I’ll
Look under the three pillars of time
Darkness shall cover the light
Forbidden from the garden, forever, I am
Wandering in time

*dance* I am the first to leave a comment! Ha! Makes a change, hey?
I am thinking your writing has improved since your short break, these recent ones I have read of yours anyways. I am liking the title too; you!

Brosreview said...

@SarahA - Yes, that is a change. And, a good one. Thank you!!!

J said...

Complicated signatures here mate!!! Hell yeah! I am loving this one!!!

Very crafty manner of expressing the situation.

As far as I recall, you called this something else in the past, didn't you? It was "Burn the shadow", right? I think I prefer the old to title to this one. No offence.

Cheers!

Brosreview said...

@J - Mate, I didn't fiddle with the signatures much. It is still the same.

Yea, I would have used the old title, but I already released something entitled somewhat similar to this song's old title.

Thanks!

Jenny Enochsson said...

Hi A-J,

You have a great talent for writing these dense beautiful timeless lyrics of yours!

This poems (and the others I have read) balance between dark and light. I would love to hear this with music. Great use of imagery as well.

Oh, and I also like the art work here. It looks Australian.

Cheers,

Jenny

Zendagi Migzara said...

"Black Bride" was indeed a killer!!
The way you have played around with "time" as a concept packed with human emotions is fantastic.. A different taste...

Keep writing.. I wonder how it would be to hear you singing these... I really wana listen to you.

Brosreview said...

@Zendagi - Thank you!!!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Classic and a class of its own. If that is the music I heard as I read along, then so be it. The graphic is also intricate.

Brosreview said...

@Bonnie - Thanks!

Alexandra Garland said...

Appears not as dark as rather ghostly... I like it!!

Walker said...

The search never ends, it's what makes the adventure so sweet

riddhi said...

ooops you did it again. Ok a cheesey cmment.

Anyway the lyrics just hit you hard. in your face. It has a 'creepy' feeling... a trance like state which forces me to 'Look under the three pillars of time'......

I am Wandering in time

riddhi said...

ohh yeah I am wondering in time as well

Brosreview said...

@Walker - Thanks for reading and yes, the search never ends.

Brosreview said...

Woman in a Window said...

I like the idea of burning the shadow. A real transformation going on there. Wondering on the three pillars of time though. I'm sure it comes from something specific. Back story?

And the slightly altered repetition works so well, draws me on.

LORENZO said...

Take shelter under the tree of life,...I like that line and don't we all do it? All the best-LL

mysterious gal said...

Brosreview said...

@Lorenzo - Thanks!!! And, yes, we all do it.

Brosreview said...

@mysterious gal - Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@Pretty Me!! - Nah, that is okay. It must have slipped your mind. Thanks!!!

zorlone said...

Are you Hiro Nakamura who was trapped in a timeless and dark place?

This one has a bit of fantasy from how I see it. Of course, in a literal sense. But, what i like about this is that, the singer is either stuck in a decision or predicament where he can't do or is hindered from doing anything about it.

A crossroad perhaps or a life changing event which necessitates some for of major choices in his way. Too big to just decide right now.

So, Aj, how did I do?

Brosreview said...

@zorlone - Ah, you can take it in a fantasy sense. Or, just infer it in life itself. It might be easier if you believe in rebirth.

Thanks for reading!

thoughts said...

absolutely beautiful.

Brosreview said...

@thoughts - Thank you!!!

Saadi said...

Black Bride?!?!

Since when did you go goth?!? Kidd'in!!!

Okay I'm gonna be honest, I read this quite a few times but I couldn't get anything after the Bride! :(

Sorry! This went totally over me!

Brosreview said...

@Saadi - Thanks, man! Yes, this one is a bit hard to understand.
