More coursework!

Hello everyone! :)

How are we all? :) Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my latest video - I'm really pleased that you like it.

I've been really busy with coursework lately, but I've just finished a few of my pieces, so I thought I'd show you what I've been up to. :) - They're not great, but hey...I'm still learning...

Here we have one piece in dorian mode, one in mixolydian mode, and one diatonic piece - made for my harmony coursework. Please let me know what you think...I think they're a bit 'interesting.' ;) (Please see below the tracks for lyrics. :))

Air of Mystery by hollykirby

Dreamings

A bronzy bower caped in gold
Between the autumn leaves she roamed
Twisting through the nettle bed
Where moths and flies were bound in web
Dewdrops on an open path
Fireflies to dry her daytime tears

Crimson clouds that floated by
Carry her sorrow through the night
Let her wake to smiling eyes
To nature's call, a new sunrise
Tie her hopes and bind them tight
Bringing all her dreamings into sight

Slumber mind and slumber eyes
Close to a new sun, burning bright
Take your time to start again
And wait for love 'til who knows when
Find reflections, find your soul
Become the one that you'd be proud to know

Air of Mystery

The pieces of your puzzle aren't as small as I surmised
I spent my time admiring all your intellectual lines
But now I see that time was wasted and I could've just stepped back
To find behind the intellect another broken track

Tell me your opinions and I'll listen carefully
But don't expect that I will necessarily agree
You can threaten my securities and criticise my claims
But keep your disenchantment, all your judgement, your disdain

Does it get lonely when someone dares to disagree?
Stop looking for the answers in everything you see
And give a little time to the air of mystery

I don't like your attitude, your derogating ways
It's harsh to laugh into a face that hears what you have to say
If you scorn my speculations, inclinations and my thoughts,
I take it that cold-shouldering is what you're asking for...

Does it get lonely when someone dares to disagree?
Stop looking for the answers in everything you see
And give a little time to the air of mystery

Does it get lonely when someone dares to disagree?
Stop looking for the answers in everything you see
And give a little time to the air of mystery
The air of mystery
