Steemit Open Mic Week 86 - 'Time' - Original music by @darrenclaxton

in openmic •  last year 


Hello Open Mic Folk!!
I'm back with another original song of mine called 'Time'
'Time' is a song that I wrote a few years ago, whilst struggling with the emotions left behind by my estranged mother. She walked out on me and my sister and left my dad to bring us up single handed. It's a song of hope and happiness, and coming through the hard times that some of us experience. After all, that's what life is all about, experiences and tears of joy and laughter. My guitar is a Crafter TA050 Electro Acoustic.

*Lyrics:

The light shines on your photo
Reflecting in your eyes
And I'm losing all my feelings
You know as time goes by*

And I'm falling from my cradle
Straight into my grave
Oh I wanted you to be there
And call my name

To the world you are one person
To one person you are the world
And it really makes no difference
Now you're not mine
Now you're not mine

Why are things decided
In the blinking of an eye
It's not the way we plan them
We just push things aside
And I'm falling from my cradle
Straight into my grave
Oh I wanted you to be there
And call my name

To the world you are one person
To one person you are the world
And it really makes no difference
Now you're not mine
Now you're not mine

The light shines on your photo
Reflecting in your eyes
And I'm losing all my feelings
You know as time goes by


I hope you enjoyed this song!
Thanks for listening...
Kindest
Darren

Just so pretty..as always, Darren. I love the echo effect. Wishing you a beautiful week and best of luck! ❤️🍪❤️

Hey lady!! I had a few weeks break and thought I grace the Open Mic stage with my presence once again!
I wish you a beautiful week too!!
PS. The echo effect was done in real time! A clever little thing I do when playing live! I move away from the mic and repeat the last word!

Sneaky magic!!!!
