The Visit

once , in the glacial midnight
i opened my door
and was flooded with warm life

something happens
so unepected
so improbable
that we call it a miracle

even as the ice becomes blacker
even as the iblack turns to ice
i expect to see the sun

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

Very nice melancholia with some gorgeous lines in "the glacial midnight" and "as the black turns to ice." I didn't know they had ice in Peru! I like the hopefulness of the last line and the restrained approach to the guitar and vocal.

Wow, I have a feeling there's a story behind this. Beautifully dramatic song, full of very powerful imagery. Wonderful.

Such an atmospheric one Bill, with plenty of space for the imagination. As always, impressed by your vocal delivery.

Oooh darkness, light, and mystery. Profound and got me thinking.

I like the minimalist nature of this song--there's so much packed into the delicate guitar and trembling vocals, lovely optimism in the lyrics. The end was unexpected, which I liked.

glacial midnight/warm life--that's a good one. The opening of a door at midnight often prefigures some sort of danger--so this was a pleasant surprise. Cool guitar, like a bluesy sitar. I love how you leave us there, hopefully, amidst the black ice

enjoyed the slow psychedelic flow of the piece as it leads you from arriving and departing at the same time. I just can't find where you've hidden the musicologist's orgasm.
