Summer Nevermore

Back to normal pop-rock style with this timely song when summer is over and chilly autumn days are present (at least here in the north). Lyrically maybe not very interesting, but I hope it brings back warm and sunny summer images smile I really like those RT guitars, especially the sound of the held one inspired the chord progression and the mood of the song. All comments welcome!

Lyrics:

Observing a brood of eiders
brisk beneath the bluest summer sky
watching in the evening hush
a sailboat swinging slowly by.
A tender moment
my joy is burning bright
it is stretching
towards your loving light.

You let me grow and bloom just the way I was
I felt alive, not stunted on a pause
now your love shines somewhere else
I'm unseen on the shore
we didn't meet again
this summer nevermore.

The soothing scent of your presence
a touch of heaven in your glowing gush
the pleasure on the steaming stone
the foaming of the rapids rush.
Your smile at dawning
will make all pigeons coo
the lips alluring
request new rendezvous.

You let me grow...

You are now just a memory
from the round rocks of the idyll isle
the fortune to lay by your side
lasted for a wistful while
Where are you hiding
my skin is cracked and chilled
I am pining
my flask not been refilled.

You let me grow...

I'm reading nature's signs
will you rise again for me
what do you want to keep in secrecy.
If you arrive my love
I surrender to your throne
if not I'm buried underneath a stone.

----------------
Janne

Janne

Nice breezy rock tune, particularly liked the chorus section, nice melody.

The midi flute sounds good and the overall production is very nice.

Good work.

I really liked the chorus melody, very memorable. Great use of BIAB. Nice lyrics, more straightforward than usual for you.

Janne,

Very nice job with the band on this! That guitar part during intro and between verses is a super choice! The melody, especially during the chorus, is wonderful! Definitely a "summer like" vibe! Thanks, Torrey

Great band. The solos and fills are excellent.

Nice cover art too...the various fungi are showing off
all through our surrounding forest.

That melody is exceptional.

Well done and we enjoyed it!

The Janne signature sound is always within the arrangement.
Nice work - tides ebb, relationships too.
We're coming toward summer on the opposite side of the planet.
"idyll isle" - now that's marketing.

Many others have already commented on your melody, Janne. Yes, that is the part the really grabs you in this song. It rolls up and down in a very entertaining way. Good band and production, too. Your lyrics are top-notch, man. They tell a story of what once was and the hope that it will be again.

Thanks Mr. TuneMonger, I appreciate your kind words smile It seems that I have succeeded with the chorus, because I've got so many nice comments about it. Glad you liked the lyrics also, I know I should be more straightforward, to keep things simple, but it is usually difficult when you have too much to say...

Hi Janne,
Good work on this tune. Catchy choruses and very nice solo. Clear mix > listens well.
Liked that phrasing:
"If you arrive my love
I surrender to your throne
if not I'm buried underneath a stone."

Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Great pop rock sound, Janne, espescially that chorus. Not lyrically interesting? I beg to differ.
Regards,
Leon
