Description
FIRST TAKE of a song I wrote this song around a recurring dream I've had about getting trapped under the ice in a river; but it's never a scary dream because I always calmly and miraculously pop up in a calm place out of harm's way...Strange....This newer version has harmony added to it, which makes a HUGE difference!!

Lyrics
Sitting on the basement stairs
no one hears and no one cares...
It's long past midnight....

Turn off the light turn off my phone
I just want to be alone....
Cause nothing else feels right....

CHORUS
Caught up in my own circumstance
Never saw it coming when I missed my chance....
Caught up in my own predicament,
Never saw it coming when it came and went
But I'm going down.....Going in.....
Slipping under....the ice....again.....

I stand here by The river's edge...
Hold my breath and pray....
Same old place in some dream….again
I try to run so fast but
I just can’t get away….
Always end up
Right back where I started I was

CHORUS

How many times have I stood here hypnotized…
How many times till I remember….To open up my eyes…
...It’s just a dream…..

Wishes dreams and fantasies
Face the dawn and feel the breeze
Touching my skin…

Time seems to slip away
I can wish but I can’t stay
Where to begin….again…

CHORUS

Cool tune
and lyrics, and vocal. Too bad about your recurring dream but at least you come up in a safe place, and it did give you this song.

Thanks Richard :-)
Glad you liked the song! Yeah it's a weird dream, I'm always driving a vehicle right along the river bank in the snow, and knowing I'm gonna slide off into the river but I'm doing it anyhow! I think there's some sort of lesson to be learned from it lol!

Harmonies
Yes I agree Peter, it really transformed it...I'm thinking about adding a low harmony here and there if I can pull it off! Thanks for listening and commenting :-)

Under the Ice
I like "Under the ice" interesting hook. It works well as a metaphor. Spare arrangement works well, strong vocals & harmonies.

Thanks Dave :-)
Glad you like the song....Funny you mentioned the hook; this was originally another song and I liked it pretty well but the chorus was boring as hell lol....So I dropped it, then picked it up again recently and gave it what I thought was a more grabbing hook...Thanks for listening and commenting!
