After a brief hiatus to North Carolina for my sister’s wedding, it’s back to Charlottesville and back to work! (The wedding was beautiful by the way. It was held at Pilot Mountain in NC just a couple hours north of Chapel Hill area.)Anyway, my return to songwriting has brought what I consider maybe the best one that I’ve written thus far. It’s not super filled with synthesizers or anything like that, but I did use software instruments for it. The main one is a synthetic orchestra sound that almost just sounds like a muted guitar. Along with that, the normal percussion comes along, as well as do some other random instruments. The thing that I think sets this one apart is the use of voices as instruments that I employed (you’ll see when you get to the little breakdown) and I’m a little obsessed with it. I really like how it turned out. Oddly enough, my voice sounds really bright in this recording. I’m not sure what I did differently in recording, but oh well! It doesn’t sound bad, just different. Anyway, have at it! Leave feedback in the form of comments pleeaaasseeeeeee. Thanks :).
Come What May (Lyrics)
So is this how it starts?
I hope that we haven’t gone too far
Come what may
Is what they say
So many friendships lost
And how? What’s the cost?
Maybe someday we’ll learn to say
Time moves on, but we can’t lose hold of what we know.
We lost touch in a heartbeat
New horizons brighten young minds
Old relationships took the backseat
How’ve you been since we’ve been undone?
Tell me now, do you remember?
We used talk days away.
But now it’s been a summer
How fast the fragile can fray
I tell myself move forward.
Keep them in your memories because
