El Duende
El Duende!
. . . the dark spirit pervades . . .

mp3 of the day: Remember

This one came about just mucking around with sounds in my studio, and in many ways is quite different to the usual sort of song I come up with - it is pretty electronic, although I don't think at all cold. Owes something to the theme from Lost in Space(!)

Remember

When the snow is clear and the time is right and the augur's good and it's almost light
I remember
Oh how it can be now

When the cymbals crash and the curtains wave and the blossoms fly and I know the way to
Remember
Close my eyes and be at peace

I lie awake and remember
Something cold and something red
I lie awake and remember
Something far away and yet shared

When the world returns to a sense of place
And it is a home not a random race
I remember,
Oh how it can be now
When the feeling's gone and the tenor's wrong and the timbre fails and I run on rails
I remember, Oh how it can be now

(repeat chorus)

When there is no way for the night to meet the day
When there is no chance for the song to become the dance

(repeat chorus)

Daniel Morphett
