Special thanks this week to Andrew T. – a longtime friend, an exceptional musician, and the vocal talent on the track. Andrew, it’s ridiculously cool that you made this one possible. Thank you! big_smile

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it, and Happy Week 15 all around.

[lyrics]
[verse 1]
when the tree feel, its leaves made a mound,
petals scattered ‘cross a pollen-caked ground,
splintered topsoil, roots in crooked coil,
past the turmoil, the crash resounds

[verse 2]
what is fallen finds its own way to fly,
a cloud of pollen in a cerulean sky,
roots ascending, leaves attending,
this soil is mending, and so am I

[chorus]
take your time to take my hand,
I’ll take this time to a timeless land,
and time will take you there, take you by the hand,
‘till then, take care

[verse 3]
petals scattered when the autumn wind blew,
leaves may linger, but they’re far and they’re few,
roots ascending, seasons pending,
and the soil is mending, and so will you

[chorus]
take your time to take my hand,
I’ll take this time to a timeless land,
and time will take you there, take you by the hand,
until then, you take care

[chorus]
take your time to take my hand,
I’ll take this time to a timeless land,
and time will take you there, take you by the hand,
‘till then, take care

Really nice vocal talent in this one! Did you write the lyrics?

The acoustic tone is something I've striven for but have missed. Great mixing on this.

Thanks so much!  I was lucky to have a friend with an actual voice who was willing to give the singing a shot.  Vocals and lyrics are definitely new territory for me, but I'm hoping to incorporate them more often going forward!
