Lyrics
quinto día

la noche había caído ya
y no quedaba nadie más
se fue a buscarla y no la encontró
primer indicio de algo extraño

buscó su número y llamó
dejó mensaje y esperó
pacientemente en el sillón de piel
hastá que el sueño le venció

luego al despertar
se pierde en su soledad
¿que se puede hacer
si no vuelve a aparecer?

el sol por la ventana ya
el timbre del teléfono
le trajo en si corriendo a contestar
pero no había mas que silencio

pasaron cuatro días así
con cuatro noches sin dormir
al quinto decidió que ya no más
y se burló de su destino

luego al despertar
se pierde en su soledad
¿que se puede hacer
si no vuelve a aparecer?

(translation)

fifth day

by that time, night had already fallen
and there was no one left around
he looked for her, she wasn't there
first sign of things gone wrong

he looked for her number and called
left a message and sat still
patiently waiting in the leather chair
until slumber overcame him

then when he wakes up
he is lost in loneliness
what is there to do
if she is never to appear

sun coming in through the window
a phone ringing made him come to
he ran to pick it up
but there was only silence

four days went by like that
with four sleepless nights
the fifth he decided that's enough
and defied his destiny

then when he wakes up
he is lost in loneliness
what is there to do
if she is never to appear

Good morning :)
First thing I did today was listening to your song - the soft melody and your beautiful singing woke me up softly.
A very good way to start the day.

production
thanks for your comment. i usually struggle with mixing and mastering. it becomes so frustrating to the point of almost quitting. somehow this one went over quite easily and i was pleased with the first mix i did. so i appreciate your comment, it is reassuring!

flawless production
Because I do not understand the words I can only comment on the overall sound of this and IT IS FLAWLESS. The soundstage is perfect and the arrangement is wonderful.

Even though I do not understand the words, I understand the song.

hi feter. yes, it is a nylon string guitar. i've only had this particular one for about a month and a half and i'm really enjoying it. i have an older spanish guitar, but my mic work needs a lot of help so i had to get myself an electric acoustic. thanks for your kind words.

Dylan Like
Very Bob Dylan like.. Its very pretty.
The production is great!!! The haromies are nice. The only think I see it needs is more bass. But I am a bass player. So of course I think that!!! hahaha

bass
i totally understand what you're saying. i'm a bassist as well and i tend to put the bass way in front, so i've been trying to curb that. i may have gone too far on this mix! thanks for listening and commenting!!

Lush
There seems to be a pattern emerging with the themes here today about losing or missing someone.

I was just listening to Moviz, " Another Golden Autumn " where he is speaking of holding on to a memory.
I posted my tune about a bloke whose lady just left him.
"Cryin' in Me Guinness".

Is it the fall bringing these tunes out?

Anyhow, I really enjoyed your tune and arrangement, it just flowed so nicely.
You have a wonderful voice and it was enhanced by your beautiful choice of instrumentation.

Lovely ..
.. really excellent instrumention: the pan flutes working
extremely well .. guitar is sweet, as is the soft mellow swing beat going on, very 'right' percussion too..but your vocals on this are just perfect...harmonies in just the right places and the whole package is mixed very well. The little instrumental breaks are excellent too ..
the orchestral/string/pizz stabs work very well with
the nicely played solo. A very 'showcase' piece, showing
off your multi-faceted talents. Brilliant song... a little mastering might bring up the vocals a little,
which you could afford to.

showcase piece
Alan, you're so kind. I really appreciate your thoughtful comments and advice. I feel good about this song and it is very rewarding to receive such encouraging feedback. But i'll tell you right now, that's as loud as my voice is ever gonna get, 'cause i'm so self-conscious about it :) At one point I almost gave up on singing and was gonna let this one be an instrumental!! Again, thank you so much for your comments. Cheers.

Reflective
This is a moody and reflective piece. Very enjoyable. I like the section where the guitar moves from finger-picked to strummed. Vocals are excellent, and remind me of Jobim.

I love the string pizzicatos. Very good choice.
