Scented Candles and Neruda: Random collaboration Round 3
I love random collaborations. Enjoyed taking part so much! Thank you Doug for being my collaborator. Your lyrics are very beautiful and truly special.
Doug: We've commented on each other's work before but never collaborated so it was nice to finally do so. This came out so lovely and I'm glad Nadia sang it herself as her sweet voice goes so well with her beautiful piano playing.

The bleeding of the sun
Into the tissue of the sea
Makes you want to run
Though you have no issue with me
Your heart no longer beats
In rhyming rhythm with my own
To share one’s life is sweet
But your vision is to be alone
So I’m back to scented candles and Neruda
Back to gathering sea shells on the beach
It seemed to me
Our dream had come to be
Now you’ve moved it out of reach
I will learn my strength
I say in promise to the clouds
Shrouding me the length
And I’ll find my solace somehow
Oh, I’ll find my solace somehow
Yes, I’ll find my solace somehow
