Songs

Very occasionally Ė every now and then Ė songs come to me in their whole glory. Most of the time all I have are lyrics, which end up here. But sometimes, they come to me and they are finished Ė lyrics I donít need to change and they bring along their melody.

I had it with the "Funeral Party Song". It hopped into my head while I was cooking potatoes after the funeral of a friendís father, and it didnít only come in words, it came with growling and belting.

I also had it with the Imalia song which I never posted here, but which is filled with so much truth, and it came to my mind and I wrote it down and I grabbed my recorder to keep it before it had the chance to fly away again.

"Blood and Bones" came halfway finished: The stanzas had a melody, the chorus hasnít got one until today.

Strangest case is and stays †"Nelya's Song" , which I have posted in autumn and which is, until now, the only song which lyrics have nothing to do with my very own emotions.

Today I had a little fun with my piano. I tried the various instruments it can imitate. And I played ĄNelyaís songď, and with a certain string arrangement, it suddenly transformed: What used to be a love song of a vampire lady to her beloved one, whose story in legend is the root of Belrohil trees for my fantasy story, and what used to be very simple, only voice and piano, became an overture, a theme for my Belrohil trees. It makes me very happy, because it means that it works without the lyrics.

†What came to me on its very own as well was the theme for Mr. Lanzo Vierklee and his family. It doesnít have lyrics at all, itís just a jolly little sweet melody. Didnít know my mind could do stuff like that.

And this afternoon, my head decided to be productive one more time. And while I was cleaning, words and melody came into my head.

"Sway

I donít know whether the sun
Mocks me or gives me comfort
I donít know where I could run
cause my mind is always there
Donít know how weíve become
More and less than we are used to
I donít know whether the sun
Is my enemy or my friend

Because I sway a little
One step ahead and three steps back
I see it all before I go blind
I hold my heart to throw away
The memory, to paint it brighter than black
Before I fall behindÖ
Because I sway a little

I want to see with blinded eyes
Because sometimes the heart sees better
When am I done with all these lies
About you and me and us?
It wasnít ever a surprise
The darkness waited on the stage back then
I want to see with blinded eyes and rise
Above the shadows down here

Because I sway a little
One step ahead and three steps back
I see it all before I go blind
I hold my heart to throw away
The memory, to paint it brighter than black
Before I fall behindÖ
Because I sway a little

They say that time is a healer
That makes you numb for all those wounds down here
I know that I will keep feeling her
I donít wanna lose theí beforeí -† cause I still care.

Because I sway a little
One step ahead and three steps back
I see it all before I go blind
I hold my heart to throw away
The memory, to paint it brighter than black
Before I fall behindÖ
Because I sway a little"

Iím not quite sure what it is about exactly, because there are two possibilites. Maybe both are true.

And I donít know whatís going on with my creativity. Itís hyperproductive these days. Is it because ist Walpurgis Night? Is it because Iíve lost and earned some burden at the same time? Is it simply magic in the making?

I donít know, and hell, I wonít complain, because itís way, way better than those days when I canít write a single word, when I canít open my mouth for a single song and when all the world seems grey and dark to me.

I much prefer these days full of colors and flowers and lovely smells and sunshine and magic and songs and dance and stories. It makes life so much more beautiful.
