When music died




Liner Notes: 

I think that evey time a musician or artist die the nature cries.

Here is my take on that thought. Feel free to grab it if you want to collab

--- PLEASE RESPECT that I do NOT want my lyrics rewritten unless we agreed on that in beforehand!
We might think different things are good but we are working with art and thats very personal
And of course that goes both ways----

Colleen: This is my take on these lyrics. Were I a better musician, I would have thrown in some fiddle breaks. I chose to keep the music sparse to follow the word painting in the lyrics. Hope you like this!


1, Roses gasp silently
All daisies cry
A fiddler just broke his last strings
In a coffin cold bones
Above the raven fly
along with souls with broken wings

Chorus: Heavy steps walking
The word is spread
Angels and shadows bow
A king is dead!

2, Behind the church
Stands the reaper
Holding his breath in despair
Flames draw to the lost soul
Darkness grows deeper
Angels choir sings: This can’t be fair

Chorus: Heavy steps walking
The word is spread
Angels and shadows bow
A king is dead!

Bridge: Ocean plays like a muted piano
When music is put on hold
A fiddler is dead screams the choir
A sleep in the moonlight of gold

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Amazing lyrics, crying and full of passion. I can hear Pete Murphy singing and playing.

Lovely. The meter on this is so good! I like the dark subject matter, handled with skill.

Would you be interested in me taking a shot at this? If so, send me a message and let me know if you like to preview collaborative pieces before they are posted. I try really hard to do justice to other people's words, despite my amateur musical ability.

Thanks for letting me about this! You handled this perfectly! The pace and softness says so much!
