Now Just Close Your Eyes w/ Symphony 101


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Yves (Symphony 101) takes all the credit for this piece. Yves created all the music, wrote the lyrics and had even sent a melody guide that he had in mind for this song. so adding my vocals was a breeze. a few guitars solos and it was back in Yves hands for the final mix. so here we are.

Lyrics
NOW JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES

First you thought you were dreaming
Things you see just cannot be real
They seemed so good to you
With their sweet words
But their eyes, said something else

Yes, it sure was something else
Something no one would ever guess
You accept without thinking
You didn't see it coming
Now just close your eyes


And you know it's only the beginning
Maybe you don't believe it
You'll be left alone
The day when they're gone
Now just close your eyes


They did everything to show you
That all they care about is you
They give a tap on your back
A hearty handshake
But their eyes, say something else


Yes, it sure was something else
Couldn't you see their arrogance
You follow without thinking
You didn't see it coming
Now just close your eyes


And you know it's only the beginning
Maybe you don't believe it
You'll be left alone
The day when they're gone
Now just close your eyes

solo

And you know it's only the beginning
Maybe you don't believe it
You'll be left alone
The day when they're gone
Now just close your eyes



Now you think you're dreaming
Things you see just cannot be real
You never asked questions
You've always been free
But now, it's something else

Oh yes, now it's something else
You're left with your innocence
You lost things you care for
Headsman waiting at your door
Now just close your eyes


And you know it's only the beginning
Maybe you don't believe it
You'll be left alone
The day when they're gone
Now just close your eyes

Great song
… from the curious way the lyrics are sung to the strong conviction of the guitar, I was captivated.

An unexpected reggae twist
A little odd at first but then it all seems to come together with the vocals.

Nice clean production.

Interesting lyrics and vocal styling.

Cheers

Now close your eyes
Not the same flow as your usual work, and when I adjusted my expectations it struck me a beguiling piece of music. Love the guitar tones. Solid backing that drives the production. A fine collaboration!

Quality groove and some fine production. Your vocal work sounds great and you do a good job with some tricky word timing conundrums, Vic. The first two guitar solos seem to be floating just behind the beat and the last one locks in on it. It gives the song a unique vibe. Great to hear you and Yves work together. Thanks, Peter.

the opening solo was intentional as behind the beat. how ever i might go back into the files and re-evaluate with fresh ears. thanks again for your time to give it a listen peter

Solid production.
That bass/guitar strum deal works great all through this number. Nice that you didn't feel like messing with lots of extraneous elements. The guitar bridge is very well played, but it struck me as a bit out of place with such a rather mellow number otherwise. (uh, oh: you did it again!). Ending seemed awfully abrupt to me.

it's a little hard for me to be mellow throughout a song. but i do see your point. maybe the seoond solo a little milder would of been nice.

Not enough reggae songs and so it's rather refreshing to listen to.

Rasta Vic is a new artist? :) Solos are killer as usual, and the reggae beat makes for a catchy way to draw us into the lyrics. Vocal chops and production are all in top form too here. A good listen. Congrats guys.

In the beginning
I can't figure out that beginning. Who is syncopating and who is on the beat? Or is that a timing problem? The solo at 3:25 sounds like it start just behind the beat, and the same for the one 2:02.
