A Fading Love Song
is the first new song I have written entirely during this new year. And naturally I have used new BIAB real tracks quite extensively :-) Those background guitars are simply amazing, especially when used together making intro and solo sound really beautiful. Unfortunately the string quartet real tracks could not play my chords nicely, so I had to use some midi strings. Sorry for the gloomy lyrics, it is this dark winter that has inspired me. Vocals are made again with Vocaloids, Avanna singing the lead, Yohioloid and Oliver backing (until a real singer volunteers ;-)
Couple of string tracks from the style HRPORK44 played through GPO VSTi

I've carved tally marks on the windowsill
I've been systematic, careful, but still
I have lost the count of the winters passed by
when God sleeps loneliness will petrify.
Earthly memories I will erase
I have used my period of grace
profiles didn't rhyme
strangers out of time
only shadows play along
a fading love song.
Devotion is a theme buried in the snow
right to be forgotten - lapses long ago
water of the Lethe I would like to drink
discords into oblivion to sink.
I would rather count stars above the shore
than failures to find bond to play the same score
accepted that the time of my visitation's gone
but hear me chant this elegy of a swan.
