Every Sound In The World

Liner Notes: 

Anyone who knows Glasgow, either by experience or by reputation, knows that it rains here a fair bit. Tonight it's hosing down, and I've been sitting listening to it. Perhaps a little too much.

The whole thing was written and recorded in about 15m. So who knows if I'll like it tomorrow, but it fits todays mood.

Lyrics: 

Every Sound In the World

Every sound in the world is contained
In the white noise
Of the falling rain
Every lost voice

And I think if I just sit here listening long enough
I’ll hear you, I’ll hear you, I’ll hear you
Say I love you

Every neverborn baby’s first cry
To the day’s light
Every whispered deathbed goodbye
In the soft night
Every tyrant’s internal confession
Every introvert’s fanfared procession
Everything can be heard
Every sound in the world

Every sound in the world is contained
In the white noise
Of the falling rain
Every lost voice

And I think if I just sit here listening long enough
I’ll hear you, I’ll hear you, I’ll hear you
Say I love you

Who knows when we ever like out songs. I sometimes grimace on what I once liked. These songs are moments in time. This captures what you described well.

So I first listened to this at work today and was struck by the lovely composition--came back tonight for a proper listen and was drawn in by the lyrics. Really love the idea of imagining all these sounds in the rain, and the unrequited love aspect is bittersweet in the best way.

yeah hang onto this one(even if for further whatevertodo's later) IMO

I also really dig the lyrical ideas about the rain carrying all the evaporated/condensed/spit back out sounds
very appropriate piano accompaniment for the rainy day as well!

Pretty subversive. Subtle in its unusualness, musically. I like the sort of changes of mode in the piano accompaniment, they go right along with the singing. Lovely sentiment as well, everything cna be heard in the rain. Deeper than it at first seems.

Lovely piano. As a dyed-in-the-wool rain lover, I appreciated the delicate, thoughtful lyric. And being an introvert, I smiled at the 'fanfare procession' line. Smile

Brilliant. Hearing this, I'm taken back to a part of my life that was dominated by mourning and desperation. It's like you plucked it out of my memories.

I'm think I've heard "Sunny Scotland" a bit and assumed it was ironic.

What a second, I think I've heard this before! Must have been on Calum's show? That's it! Anyway, I loved it when I first heard it and I love it now. I actually started writing a lyric inspired by this yesterday: Every newborn baby is invading the Earth. It's all lovely, and the lyric is great, really thought-provoking

Definitely a rainy night mood. I love the idea of the "introvert's fanfared procession" and everything contained in the sound of the rain. Piano is dark and lovely ... it'd be interesting to hear this with cello accompaniment. Sustained crash at the end powerful. Great!

According to yoga philosophy, every sound in the world come from the seed sound Om. So I was drawn to this one.
Lovely and personal and reflective. Just as in the last one of yours I listened to, I love the depth of your piano and vocal sounds. Some thought-provoking lyrics, too.
