The Dialling Tone

Hello lovely people :)

I did a simple little recording as a break from work today. Not fabulous quality, but I thought I'd post it for you.

Lots of love xxxxxxxxx


 The Dialling Tone by hollykirby


LYRICS:

It's 6am, he's all alone
One coffee later he picks up his mobile phone
And dials a dream, a lover undefined
He sets the scene, rehearses all his lines

"Good morning sweetheart, kiss me now
And wake my body up, for only you know how
To thrill me so, to soothe these days of woe.
I feel you here, the nights of sadness go."

She took his charm on the chin
But had already let him in
She'd invited him in
Before she knew he was a fool
He had rearranged the room
And the pieces of her too
A decadent play
Just a game, just a game
Re-igniting his flame
Girl by girl, day by day

"Oh say the words I long to hear,
I love you and the way you make me feel.
You have my heart, and all the things I am;
A fearless soul, a lion of a man."

He leaves her with the dialling tone
An emptiness inside, a dream she made her own
He's not her love - he faded with the dream
And what remains is lonely and obscene

She took his charm on the chin
But had already let him in
She'd invited him in
Before she knew he was a fool
He had rearranged the room
And the pieces of her too
A decadent play
Just a game, just a game
Re-igniting his flame
Girl by girl, day by day

She took his charm on the chin
But had already let him in
She'd invited him in
Before she knew he was a fool
He had rearranged the room
And the pieces of her too
A decadent play
Just a game, just a game
Re-igniting his flame
Girl by girl, day by day

Hello lovely people :)

I just wanted to say - thank you so much - for your great, lovely, supportive comments on my last post. Even though it seemed like a bit of a downer compared to the one before it, the turning point/optimism has continued.

I finished the essays that I was whinging a lot about. I really don't have any idea as to how I've done, but I don't have high hopes. I did my best, and hopefully that's enough to get me through. We've now received another piece of coursework that's pretty tough, and it's due in before Christmas. Eek! I have to say, I'm definitely feeling the pressure of final year. It counts for so much more than the other years! :-/

Anyhow, despite the pressure, I'm feeling pretty good. I have to say, the other day I was walking along the road, and I just thought to myself... "yes, I'm happy." I just felt genuinely good. Nothing drastic had changed circumstance wise, the weather was still grey, I still had deadlines, but I thought to myself... I'm happy, I'm totally in charge of what I do, and I feel peaceful in myself. It was a moment that I'd been hoping for, for what seemed to be a long while. But it was when I stopped actively wanting and hoping to feel better that the moment came when I did. It's one big new beginning, and I guess since music is such an important part of my life, you'll hear it in my music. I don't mean I'm going to go all dubstep/, but maybe there'll be something there that you recognise as being different. I'm just saying this, but there may be NO change at all! Lol. But maybe there will be. :)

Over the next couple of months I'll be working hard on writing music for TV/film clips for my coursework, but I'll try to post what I do here. I haven't written music in what feels like ages!

(And in between I'll be recording my album tracks. :))

TTFN - I'll get to work. :)

P.S...lovely autumnal colours in Surrey :)
