There is no demo for this song.

Liner Notes

I'm focusing on writing lyrics for this 50/90. Here is one of them.

If you would like to add music and make a demo then please feel free. You can let me know and I'll add you to this posting or you can make a new post and add me as a collaborator. You do not need to ask permission first. You can also mash up, change, mar, mold, manipulate, ruin, improve or otherwise change this lyric without asking permission as long as it doesn't support apartheid etc.,. If you need to ask then please just don't.

Lyrics

How long must I remain
In the midnight silence
Amid the strife and storm
Around the spirits violence?

How long must I remain
Under the weight of years
My body breaking down
Enduring mortal fears?

I look up to the clear night sky
For a moment I don't ask why
My spirit rests, I find relief
And I lose my human grief
How long...

How long must I remain
A victim of this sorrow
Before I yield, before I rest
Forswearing my tomorrow

I look up to the clear night sky
For a moment I don't ask why
My spirit rests, I find relief
And I lose my human grief
How long...

Really nice write. Not sure that I'd be the person to set this to music though.

Poetic!
I really like this, especially these lines:
My spirit rests, I find relief
And I lose my human grief
