Curtains Rise and Fall

Liner Notes: 

Skirmish Title: Curtains

Lyrics: 

V1
as the curtain rises
the stage is lit
and the house lights
grow dim
drawing us in
to fantasy....

something new
is starting like
love's first song
when the music swells
and love goes on

C
curtains rise and fall
all around and within us
curtains rise and fall
yeah...curtains rise and fall

curtains rise and fall
despite and because of love
curtains rise and fall
yeah...curtains rise and fall

V2
as the curtain falls
the stage goes black
and house lights
come on
bringing us back
to reality....

now it is over like
love's final song
when the music dies
and love is gone

C
curtains rise and fall
all around and within us
curtains rise and fall
yeah...curtains rise and fall

curtains rise and fall
despite and because of love
curtains rise and fall
yeah...curtains rise and fall

B
who can lift the curtains?
who can pull the strings?
who can make love go on
after everything...
everything ends

OUTRO
curtains rise and fall
all around and within us

curtains rise and fall
despite and because of love



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

Quite beautiful work, particularly for a skirmish. Love going on after everything ends. I hope you get this put to music.

The comparison of a play beginning and ending to a love beginning and ending is awesome! Such anticipation, such expectation, such excitement, but then it's over. And you go home alone, but a different person than when you got there. Very good stuff!

Very interesting; for most of the lyrics, it seems to me that you are positing love as being as artificial a construct as a play on a stage. But then the bridge introduces an entirely new, philosophical level. I'm intrigued to hear a demo!

evoked for me a sense of pulsating flow, like a heart pumping blood, but a kind of social/emotional going through life pulse

Love this one too. My favourite is: who can lift the curtains, pull the strings. I'd try this one too.

Great idea with the theater and performance and having the curtains be the beginning and end of everyone's show, that is super clever, great skirmish!!
