Colour me flowers

Colour me rosy , colour me flaming red, scarlet red
Like a flower, like a flower,
Colour me sunlight, colour me yellow sunlight, the sun
Like sunflowers, sunny flowers

Paint me wild fantasies love, old memories, melodies, reveries

Colour me eyes, colour me blue like the sky, distant skies
Like the skylight, like the skylight
Colour me lips, colour me crimson and dark, lilac shade
Like a sweet wine, like a sweet wine

Paint me wild fantasies love, old memories, melodies, reveries

Colour me ruby, colour me orange, grey, tender wings
Like a robin, like a robin
Colour me tears, colour me tears cried for love, cried for love
After love’s gone, for a love gone

Paint me sunset and dawn, life going on, after love’s gone, a love gone
Paint me wild fantasies love, old memories, melodies, reveries

This is a beautiful song. The video is really nice and production of both the audio and video are excellent. The first note of the solo hits a bit hard but they was the only distraction.

Enjoyed my listen.

I really like the lyrics and melody. And the arrangement and instrument choices too.

Beautiful and haunting.

Also, I did not read the instruments correctly and did not notice the "Atmosphere Angelina". so at first I thought you had run the Dreamy Gtr through an Fx Bus and lowered the original Gtr down to zero leaving only the effects for atmosphere. So you have given me an idea smile

Rob, Anne-Marie,

What a beautiful song, the lyrics are so gentle and poetic. It was a real pleasure to sit with my coffee this morning and just let it flow over me. Each clip on the video gave one the ability for thought and reflection.

Thank You.

Hi Anne-Marie and Rob,

Loved the video and equally loved Ann-Marie's singing. This is such an atmospheric composition. The way that words and music have been woven together to create the song-equivalent of an impressionistic painting is very impressive. You've done a great job Anne-Marie!

Rob, the musical backing, its arranging and its mix is, as always, top shelf.

All the best,
Noel

There is so much synergy with the vocal, the backing tracks and the video. You two
are awesome with that.

The interplay of the colors in the lyric and the video is wonderful.

Lovely.

Hi Charlie,

Thanks for your support.
It was Rob's choice whistle to set the level of the Brent soloist!
When are you going to post a new song, we've always liked your contributions?

Omigosh, Anne-Marie... this is SOOOoooo BEAUTIFUL!!

When I first heard the beginning, I thought it was a hammered dulcimer.. and even after listening for several times, I still can't figure out how you accomplished that sound!

This is a good example of the way collaborating with professionals elevates the whole project to a level that is bigger than the sum of its parts... your skill in video making , song writing , mixing etc, combined with Henriette's beautiful visual art really works together very well to create an audio-visual delight!

I loved EVERYTHING about this song...
the repetitions within the lyrics
your beautiful voice
the lyrics themselves
the paintings
the mix
the instrumentation was also a key part of the ethereal quality you managed to create in this song.. the pipes especially

we've said this before, but you should be famous. Please hurry up and get famous! I'm old and I'll be dead soon, and I don't want to miss it when it happens. ;-)

Hi Lawrence,

Thanks for your positive comment!
Well editing Brent's guitar in order to achieve such a sound would almost be undoable ...But I can surely recommend The Angelina.vst, which is free by the way.

A lovely song perfectly complimented by your production and images.
If you aren`t already, I`m sure you would be swamped with interest if you made videos for other musicians.
