Words

“Words of time, traveling to the stars beyond.

Words of love, drowning in the memory rains.

Words of mine, falling down upon dreams of tomorrow.”

Ivor

Hey my lovely artist friends πŸ™‚

This is the 5th song I am sharing with you and I am very excited for this time, the words aren’t mine.Β I have adapted the gorgeous lines of a friend and fellow blogger – Words of Mine, by Ivor – into this acoustic song. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as enjoyed creating it. Many thanks to Ivor for letting my adapt his beautiful words and thank you to my lovely best friend Claire L. for her sweet back up voice <3.

Hailie


 

Here is the chorus of the song:Β 

“I’ve given you all, my humble words.

I’ve given you, my hidden soul.

I’ve given you all, my inner self.

I’ve given you, my outer grief.

I’ve given you all, my lonely heart.

I’ve given you, my secret loves.”

Ivor

    Wow, I’m overcome and overwhelmed, an absolutely beautiful song, your tune, voices and the chorus, were superb, I think we need a full on studio production, ha, definitely a world No 1 coming up. Thankyou so very much, I’m so thrilled to hear my words sung by you. After all these years of writing, your the first !! to put a tune to my words, “stupendo”

    1. I am so happy you like it! I was an absolute delight working with your words. I came up with the tune of the verse in seconds, it was like magic. The rest flowed naturally after that. πŸ™‚ we did work on it quite a bit to get to that version though. I am thrilled it brings you joy πŸ’• haha maybe we will get a studio recording πŸ™‚ who knows life is full of surprises!
