My cover of the beautiful Jeff Buckley song. I don't know exactly what the lyrics are about but I find them moving nonetheless. I tried doing the ethereal sounding Buckley falsetto but it sounded awful, so I brought it down an octave into my range.
There is a child sleeping near his twin
The pictures go wild in a rush of wind
That dark angel he is shuffling in
Watching over them with his black feather wings unfurled..
The love you lost with her skin so fair
Is free with the wind in her butterscotch hair
Her green eyes bloom goodbyes
With her head in her hands
And your kiss on the lips of another..
Dream brother with your tears scattered round the world..
Don't be like the one who made me so old
And don't be like the one who left behind his name
Cos they're waiting for you
Like I waited for mine and nobody ever came..
I feel afraid and I call your name
I love your voice and your dance insane
I hear your words and I know your pain
Your head in your hands and her kiss on the lips of another
Your eyes to the ground
and the world spinning round forever
Asleep in the sand with the ocean washing over...
