New Song Release, only on Steemit!

in dsound •  9 months ago



When I was younger I'd spend some summer nights cat fishing and playing music with friends. One of these friends is now the lead singer for the Ohio band The American Landscape. We recently reconnected through music after all these years, and this week he came over to help me out with a brand new release. He has one of those voices that just rings with emotion, and you really get a sense of it in this recording.

"Syria, or West Virginia" was written about war-torn Syria, but when I sing it I also see places like Boone County, West Virginia in my head as well.

Lyrics:
There were flowers in the garden beside the street
where we would play
There was laughter in the house before everyone went
away

Tell me a story, sing me a song
About the days before things were gone
Before the rubble, before the dust
Before God in heaven stopped hearing us

There were trees up on the mountains there was no fear in the dark
There was life in the river and there and was strength in our hearts

Tell me a story, sing me a song
About the days before things were gone
Before the rubble, before the dust
Before God in heaven stopped hearing us

No more flowers in the garden, no more garden no more street
No more laughter in the house, now there’s nobody left to meet

Tell me a story, sing me a song
About the days before things were gone
Before the rubble, before the dust
Before God in heaven stopped hearing us

Tell me a story, sing me a song
About the days before things were gone
Before the rubble, before the dust
Before God in heaven stopped hearing us

Nice work. I love the innocence and hometown feel to it. Thanks.

If there is a hell, it has to be very similar to Aleppo. Or to Palmira. Or any of the Syrian cities that, plunged into a war for more than five years, are the scene of the most serious crimes. This lyric really take my heart.

Yes, it's just so sad.

Thanks Ben. It looks like your Brazil tour has been going well!

The sound of a recorded banjo always captures this natural vibe to me. I hope to have one I can experiment with one day. Beautiful song guys :)

·

I'm glad you like it. The banjo is my favorite instrument, but some folks just can't stand them!

I feel the lyrics! Nice song!

This is a beautiful song, I can tell. I just love music that speaks for the voiceless.

Me too. Thanks.

foolow you and upvote

this child's photo holds a lot of meaning, and I'm interested in the lyrics of the song. I like it your post.

What amazing lyrics! I love your stripped back music but I would also love to hear this with a full band and professional production. I think it would be stunning!

·

Maybe someday!

Amazing! Love this track!

Such a good song

This is deep man, it resonated with so much of what I have going on, and I guess that's the thing that makes this wonderful. You wrote it for something but it got to me in another way, and I really don't have nothing to do with Syria or the USA. Great piece!

·

Wow, thanks for the kind words.

This is exceptional! do you have a musicon? id tip for this def upvoting on here!

I like How unique your talent is. your lyrics are very real, I can feel the honesty in them and how deep they are. keep it going bro.
No more flowers in the garden, no more garden no more street No more laughter in the house. this part make feel sad may be because i do miss something in my life.

Beautiful song! I just went to USA last year and this song really reminds me of there!

Music is life
It uplifts the soul and gives this great connection
I love music so much it got me into trouble while I was much younger
Coz I couldn't help but sing all the time most especially in class

Really beautiful!

wow absolutely amazing!

Haunting song, love the way it sounds.

I am so blown away by this. As a singer songwriter I can say that this is a truly amazing song and does what all great songs should do - make people feel and think.

Weewwww this song make me believe i can fly with story 😍
