Wet sand


(Piano INTRO)
(Bass begins)
(Guitar begins)

Eyes closed
Eyes opened
The hands that fed me
The hands that bled me
Two sides of a coin
Eyes opened
Eyes closed

(Drums begin)

I cry!
And, wet the sands
Of this
Deserted Desert
I call!
My life
And,
I ask!
Why!
Why Her!
Why not someone else!
Why anybody!
Why not me
Instead

(Guitar solo)
(Drums break)
(Piano and Guitar DUAL)
(Drums begin)
(Piano solo)
(Drums stop)
(Piano and Bass continue)

Eyes opened
Eyes closed
The hands that fed me
The hands that bled me
Two sides of a coin
Eyes closed
Eyes opened

The "Song for the Week" is an instrumental section by John Petrucci. It was whilst listening to this section that I came up with the phrase "silver breeze" in the album Fallen in Aroha (find all 3 parts under labels).

This goes straight for the heart and tugs away. Beautiful and sad.

Wonderfully written, Ajey. Nadege's comment made me hear instruments. I had never done so before.

Okay, I am now ready to read this. Excuse me, I needed some scotch here.

Your word play is amazing Ajey. They very cunningly go under the radar. If understood, they create such a huuuge difference.

To me, the mid-section is straightforward. But, it is the beginning and the end that generates a major twist like a hurricane.

The beginning suggesting the lack of awareness OR may be shutting the eye to obviousness. The end suggesting the eyes now opened to the truth but with tears in its eyes.

Only you can deliver that twist so smartly. Fantastic Ajey! I have a strong feeling that this album will turn out stellar; something like Album THE.

Best of luck!

Beautiful, I lost someone last week and this describes exactly how I felt.

Is a staying in the brain, sticking to the sides;batch of words.I am also liking how the ending of such, mirrors the beginning.
Good write; you.

Ajey,
You make it very tough for me! Goes to show how far a distance I have to travel - but I wish to travel, nevertheless. :-)

All I could guess was that the person is grieving about loss and is feeling extremely lonely in this world.

The Write Girl said...

What an emotional and stirring piece AJ. I love the poetic flow as well.

SandyCarlson said...

It's good to come here and enjoy the music, the lyrics, the creative potential you act on. Beautiful.

I thought I commented on this one, but apparently not :( so sorry Ajey, been really out of it and busy lately. No, nothing wrong- at least nothing other than the norm, just busier than I'd like to be.

this was very moving, reminded me of a nightmare that wakes you in the dead of night, leaving you to shake it off and find a new appreciation for that which you never wish to lose.

Brilliant!
