Lyrics:

A vision of you wandering the fields
You'd never ever worry, just living it for free
Raise your child, provide her every need
When everything seems silent
Everything feels real

A sudden cry of thunder
Kills the light of day
And the forest wheeps
as the babies die
It's haunting me

Savannah.....

Disgraced by men disgraced by poisoned minds
For whom life means so little, for whom there's only greed
A cruel excuse for all your human needs
I bet you hold your silence
I bet you hold your peace

When hunters cold as iron
spread death and pain
Trampling nature's grounds
in a no man's land
As far as they can see

Poachers cold as iron
cause death and pain
While the forest weeps
They'll degrade themselves
By killing babies

Savannah.....

What can I say?
Beautiful vocals, a wonderful wildlife video.

Such a diverse set of songs in this project.
I do hope governments listen but then sadly :>(

I was half-expecting Elton after that sweet piano opening:)

Love the melody. It's just right for the topic.

Excellent write and production and top-shelf vocals - as usual.

Rob and Anne-Marie
This is just wonderful. Well up to your normal very high standards. How on earth do you manage to dig up public domain footage like this? The vocals are outstanding and Anne-Marie's subtle undercurrent of harmony make a great production.

For those who don't understand how talented these two are, this song was written, recorded and produced in about 4 days!. AND a video to boot. Now that is something to aspire to!

Hey you two, great video and audio production. Anybody
who that has any doubt about how a video can enhance a lyric
should watch this.

Thanks for applying you high production values and creativity
to this cause.

We really like what you did.

Rob and Anne-Marie,

Wonderful. Excellent write. A strong lyric against a strong melody.

I'm a big fan of the solo piano and vocal type production. This is a great treatment for this song. Your vocals are always good - this is your best - filled with passion.

Really beautiful song!! Like Floyd said, I also love the piano/vocal arrangement. This RT is great, and you vocal is great as well. One of the best you've done (song and vocal)!! Take care. Greg

Hi Scott,

Let me take a wild guess, after the piano intro you were expecting to hear......Daniel? grin
You're definitely right, I had that Elton feeling all along while writing this one.
I think this is one of the best RTs to use for this type of song.

Thanks for your comment!

Hi Joanne,

Yes, we were lucky to be able to use the footage. Anne-Marie is very good at digging it up from the Internet, and editing it next.
We are happy that you like the song. It's a very cool project and we really hope that you'll find enough sponsors.

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie,

Definitely a composition to be proud of. The piano/vocals/video combination is very powerful indeed. I can't believe that it all happened in 4 days! That's pretty incredible. You've both shown us yet another way of looking at these magnificent animals.

What a great audio-visual journey!

All the best,
Noel

Thanks J&B,

Well your contribution to the project definitely is cool too! We took a listen from within Dropbox. Did you already post this on the forum, or have we missed that?

Thank you Floyd,

we liked this specific piano RT for the song.
We've tried a couple of others, including some of the MIDI pianos, played with the DXI Forte (which sometimes is even better than RTs).
These solo accompaniment pianos give lots of room for the vocals.

Hi Noel,

Thanks for your nice comment.
We first tried some arrangements we had lying around, but they didn't quite fit this theme.
So Rob took his guitar and came up with this chord progression and vocal line.
We were glad we were in time to contribute, almost missed this project. That would have been a shame...

Kind regards,
Rob and Anne-Marie
