Liner Notes: 

Noted the prompt at about 10 to 3, said, ah, I'm late, threw out a couple quick ideas and ended up here. Thanks for the prompt!

Lyrics: 

Looking all around me
Everywhere I wander
All about what I see
Fall is on its way

Listening to the wind blow
Early in the morning
As the sun is rising
Feeling the new day

See the leaves falling
See the autumnal changes
See the world calling
See the colour ranges
As the seasons turn
As the seasons turn

Leaving from the front door
Exiting to blue skies
Amazed by the beauty
Facing the bright world

Leaning against a tree
Eating a fresh apple
Always full of wonder
Fond of what's unfurled

See the leaves falling
See the autumnal changes
See the world calling
See the colour ranges
As the seasons turn
As the seasons turn



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

So good Alex! And, you made me want a crunchy apple too! Beautiful!

I like the repetitious line start. This can work really well, its like underlining - it certainly works here. Its always nice to marvel at what each season can bring! Nice one mate.

I really like the choice of chords and the melody you put on top of those chords- its got this open-ended feel that suits the subject well...

nicely done!

(there's a tiny melody resembelece to 'the hammond song' by the roches, by the way.. do you know that group (three sisters, were active mostly in the late 70's to the 90s)

Really nice tune, I especially like the chorus syncopation.

Clicked the button and have singing and playing...sounds good...good melody...can clearly understand the lyrics...feeling the new day...see the leaf...as the schemes turn...exiting the blue sky...See the leafs falling...catchy. Ok, it's over now. First, I should have read the lyrics but I clicked for some reason. I got through it ok but let me go back and look at the lyrics...ok, lots of visual showing the changing season. Great job Alex

I am especially touched by the contentment and optimism that comes through in V3&4. Very refreshing!

A wonderful, positive song - The apple verse - wow - unexpected but perfect!
