Crumbling Again



Liner Notes: 


Literal URL


OK - see the first two songs posted here for "granular" liner notes, -- not gonna keep re-pasting it, (if interested).

Again, this/these is/are all going to be a one-take krappey cell phone recordings. Some may come from an Audacity upload, --pending how my Linux Mint 18.1 migration is going. Frankly, the phones as good or better +- :).

Songbook notes:
From long time unfinished draft, ad hoc "found" on backside of other lyrics (so many piles, clips of paper(s); working on several songs simultaneously; 30 mins to finish from fragments, circa 2012. I think it was mostly revolved around verse 01 from that period, remainder finished presently.


D f# (sus D4) Am e,c
My family’s graves…, quake and rumble
D f# Am
My prayers are merely…, tiny mumbles
C e e.g^ G g
Gods face, faces me here…, when

F f D d C c D d [Chorus]
Crumbling (rumbling) …, a - gain,
F f D d C c D d
Crumbling…,, a - gain,,

My family’s brave…, no fakes, or rabble
My prayers are really…, sparsely able, yet
Gods spaced…, a place for me here…, when,


My family’s safe…, under His wing
My prayers are merely…, kindly spoke, yet
Gods ear, hears me well…, when


I know I tried…, to take many with me
I know I tried…, to stake that ground
Gods face, it faced us there, when

F f D d C c D d [Chorus]
Stumbling…, a - gain,
F f D d C c D d
Stumbling…, a - gain,,
F f D d C c D d [s - d,c,a, dwn pitch]
Crumbling…, in-to His Skin

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

I don't like using the word organic, but the relationship between your voice and guitar, is "organic", they work really well together. I noticed this in another song of yours. Nice and moody, with a hint of the blues in it, very nice.

OOOOH thank you for this! very nice, one of my favourites so far. Absolutely on my top list for 5090. Crazy good vocal and marries the guitar in a way that kisses the listeners ears. OH SO GOOD!

Very nice! You use your voice well in this song (as with most of your songs). Its melody is quite different from your other stuff and I like it. I like your other stuff, too, but like it especially when you experiment with something really different.

The melody in your chorus has got a rock vibe to it - nice. Smile
