Dimly Lit Shanty Town

(The Singaround Project)

A ballad. Burning bridges hide the view of the other side.

Chorus: Tears ran, tears flowed, Lines constricted her face, Pride and jealousy glowed, Time kept its pace. Unable to disconnect or shut down, To forget . To cross the front porch, To run, and then again to resurge, In a dimly lit shanty town. She wishes To hide, stay out of sight, burn bridges. Chorus: Tears ran, tears flowed, Lines constricted her face, Pride and jealousy glowed, Time kept its pace. “You go to hell and you leave now”. He won’t let her in, he will not let her near. She’ll walk, but the roads are none too clear. Her penalty –densely forested fringes, To hide, stay out of sight, burn bridges.

Was du gerade machst

By Mikael Duda

"Was du gerade machst" in ein trauriger Text und spiegelt eine Situation wieder, die wohl jeder einmal durchlebt hat. Die Trennung von seinem Partner ist noch nicht lange her und man fragt sich ständig, was der andere wohl gerade macht. Ist er glücklich? Vermisst er mich? Oder wurde ich schon längst ersetzt? Nach einer Trennung hatte ich genau diese Gedanken und es bereitete mir schlaflose nächte. Die Zeit in der ich nicht schlief nutzte ich dann, um diesen Song zu schreiben. Ein sehr trauriger und depressiver Text.

That Feeling

By Nick Duer

This is a spiritual song, a happy song. A song about those few times in this lifetime that make all the difficult things worthwhile. I saw the sunset in Vegas one evening and the beauty brought tears to my eyes and a feeling of peace that is beyond description.
