Song Description

A delicate brass-string guitar playing over orchestral strings introduces the chorus melody in the opening bars of this contemporary pop piece about a lost love. Warm lead and harmony vocals glide over a bed of guitars and strings in the opening verse. A somber chorus melody shifts the emotional sentiment and effectively contrasts the blissful verses. Heavily overdriven guitars and distorted background vocals in the interlude add dynamics to the composition. The opening guitar solo is revisited after the song climaxes and the calming orchestral strings fade to black to end the song.

Story Behind the Song

They say that time heals all wounds, but the scars never completely fade away. This song tells the story of how one relationship gone sour can ultimately destroy a person?s ability to love again. Tortured and tormented, I wrote this song as an ode to my departed lover, in the hopes of either regaining her love or ridding myself of the emotional turmoil. None of my objectives were attained.

Lyrics

I miss you dear
I need you here to calm my fears
You became my life
I had plans to make you my wife
But loosing you cut me like a knife

Whispers and wishes
Of candles and kisses
I dream of you here by my side
Sweet summer breezes
Sway through your eyelashes
These memories I long to hide
Lonesome and lifeless
I lie here in silence
Tormented by tears locked inside
Forceful and fearless
Embracing indifference
In solitude I will confide

God grant me peace
I beg you please
I?m on my knees
I have met somebody new
And yes, her heart is true
But I just can?t compare her to you

Whispers and wishes
Of candles and kisses
I dream of you here by my side

Timeless and aimless my anger grows vicious
Thoughts of the promises broken between us
I pray for days I am free of this madness
Days that my heart once again will taste happiness
Anger grows vicious
Timeless and aimless
