Broadjam Member Reviews

very nice chord structure, i like the classification as dreampop, frankly i've not heard REAL dreampop, but this is real close...almost Pink Floyd light-NOT a bad thing. Nice lyrics for sure, love the melodic structure to this and build. like the guitar work and overall instrumentation that keeps helping the song get stronger, yes i notice it, well done.

    - Warren Hein

An acoustic progressive ballad + Sting doing Fragile and such. Top notch quality everything, from the production, to the performances, to the song.

Lyrics

Alicante
Take this man
Take this vessel these long years have drained
Take these fears that I hold
Take this shell that remains

Alicante
Won't you hold me
Take me in your arms don't let go
Promises always the same
Trading this shadow for my soul

Once there was fire in these eyes
No fear no doubt no disguise
These weak hands were strong
...ever longing
Just for this light in my dreams
In the grey streets below
I hear their cries
Calling for glories they've known
Oh but I see the blood in their eyes

This scarlet day lays
I close my eyes I pray
Into the sun the lonely one lonely

On this day my name they will cry
Then 'neath this sword I will lie

Once there was fire in these eyes
No fear no doubt no disguise
These weak hands were strong
...ever longing
Just for this light in my dreams
Just for this light in my dreams
