Gone Home - original version


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Finally, a song NOT about my wife. I had to keep reassuring her this was about the ancient myths of the mariner being lured to his demise by the song of the siren. She reminded me that this was also a metaphor of many modern day relationships. Once again, I reminded her ~ it's not always about you dear :-)

This is the original version, I did a more recent version pitched up a half note, but it's easier to stay in my natural baritone regardless of what I may think of it :-)

Lyrics
Came on softly in the night
Caressed my ears without a sound
Tried in vain to put up a fight
Dragged face down to the ground

Pre Chorus
Hold on
With all your might
Lose your grip you will
Lose your life

Chorus
Blame it on the muse of fate
True love’s call is a siren’s song
I found out too late
If I’d only gone home

Verse 2
Followed her on a lover’s course
Along blood tracks in the sand
Spilled out from my life force
All drawn by my own hand

Pre Chorus
Hold On
Don’t lose control
Give up your heart she’ll
Steal your soul

Chorus
Shout out to the fates
True love’s call is a siren’s song
I found out too late
If I’d only gone . . .

Chorus
Blame it on the muse of fate
True love’s call is a siren’s song
I found out too late
If I’d only gone home

Thank you
I hate my voice which I guess is natural for most since it sounds so different live from what we think we're hearing in our own heads.

I thought
that I had seen /heard this somewhere before and checked to see if I had my underpants and trousers on in the right order !! Then got to the last line in the description and breathed a sigh of relief...I may have my underpants on over my trousers but at least I have heard a different version of this ....this is equally good,slightly different in delivery ....as you say different pitch.

Irish Rock
This sounds like rocked up version of a tradition Irish ballad. Could easily hear this with just an acoustic. Nice n tight. I won't be a hypocrite and tell you no reason to hate your voice, but as a 3rd person pov, it sounds fine to my ears.

mrattue should do a remake.
