Demo: 

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

Didn't have a lot of inspiration today, so I took some old noodlings from a few years ago, and reworked them. Not finished, but getting there hopefully.

It needs a bridge too I think, so will maybe add that later when I've nothing else to do Wink

Please read my profile page re collabs Smile

{@Klaus] is going to create a demo for these lyrics Smile Really looking forward to it, thank you Klaus Smile

This is Klaus speaking. Thank you, Amanda, for these wonderful lyrics. They were very easy to put into music, not only because of the clear rhythms but also because of the short lines and low word count. Klaus likes it! Hope you all like it too.

Lyrics: 

2nd DRAFT LYRIC with Klaus's changes to fit the music
(I've put the 2 changed lines in brackets, in case anyone is interested or curious about it all. The changes are in the same place in the verses, in order to fit the rhythm Klaus had in his melody/arrangement.
The original first draft is below this one.)

Verse 1
My heart stops with time
(Breathing in, breathing out)
Looking at you
I have no doubt

Pre Ch
Time cannot move as we live in the moment

Chorus
Soak your eyes through my skin
Fill my heart with you
You can trust what I bring
Feel my love for you

Verse 2
My skin's so alive
(It reacts to your eyes)
Nerve ends explode
Don't have to try

Pre Ch
Time cannot move as we live in the moment

Chorus
Soak your eyes through my skin
Fill my heart with you
You can trust what I bring
Feel my love for you

Great write! Passion and love so obvious throughout.

I agree with Cindyrella. An emotional love song that somehow manages to be traditional ( the title ) and modern ( the intensity of the reaction to a gaze ). I would want to demo this if it's not taken already.

Lovely work, and a great way to open things up. Gimme a heads-up when @Klaus has worked his magic please. Smile

Thats great guys. So comfortable a feeling. I knew Klaus would do a lovely job with these very nice lyrics.

Oh yes, by far one of my favorites of the year. Klaus, you delivered...a true professional. I like everything about the demo and the vocals are really good. Excellent melody and arrangement. I don't know anybody who could have done a better collaboration than you two. Very nice!

Really beautiful ... I picture a video with sun-splashed slow motion images. Beach Boys sprang to mind. "Time cannot move as we live in the moment" a nice line. Keys are like 80s meets 60s. Very catchy chorus as well!

Beautiful! This is a glorious interpretation and performance.

Great collab you two.

This came out brilliant! I'm trying to catch up on songs I've missed and this one pops, guys. This could've been parody but it's a pastiche instead and, man, is it good!

First of all, I sure admire those who can write pre-choruses - I've just never really tried it, I suppose. And the one here is brilliant.
Lovely musical setting - lush, comfortable. The chorus is memorable musically and lyrically. Excellent collab!
