Steemit Open Mic - Cover Of Woods Of Ypres "Ghost Of Summers Past"

in openmic •  last month 


Greetings Steemit Open Mic!

This week I decided to do a song I've been considering covering for a while now. This one is off of Woods Of Ypres second album and is a really cool song from the late and totally great David Gold.


There is a comfort in longing for
Something that's gone forever
It shows how much that something meant to you
When it was here
To a person who claims
To never having had anything
They can be confronted by
The empty space where something once was
I could only remember feeling so bad
When the present time was passing by
Looking back now I realise
That the best and worst times in my life
Could coincide
My greatest achievement is also my greatest loss
The best thing I ever had is forever gone
It is a dark and fulfilling feeling of frustration
To reminisce and feel the opposite of anticipation
It is a talent of the soul
To discover the joys in pain
Thinking of moments you long for
Knowing you'll never have them again
A moment of euphoria
Inspired by a photograph from that summer
I remember how we hated everything
And in that we managed to find comfort in each other
Those days are gone, my heart goes on
I long for the way it used to be
When summer comes it will return
That feeling will become again
It comes on strong and so fast
But you know that it won't last
It's just the hauntings of
The ghosts of summer's past
And though they are far behind me
I can still hear them calling
As if they were right beside me
Tempting my comfort in longing
Songwriters: David Gold
