Lost demo song



 Genre: Acoustic

Get Flash to see this player.

Looking through the files last night I found a file called “Demo” which naturally I had to play and was pleasantly surprised to find this one off run through Steve and I had recorded of a new song at the end of 2012. From memory it was done on a phone and I’ve just cleaned up the sound a bit. Somehow we never got back to finish it and with moving away it faded from memory. The lyrics were some very old one’s I’d written back in 1983 and dug out to try a new tune around. Glad it wasn’t lost forever. Cheers Mark

Demo song

Wild places, the world to myself
It’s free
Away from the people and away from the places
Repeated work and repeated faces

Onto the moor, the field in the forest
Out by the cliffs
Forget reality forget the past
Thinking of you and hoping love will last

Wind on the face and rain on the clothes
No ties
Away from them all on the alone
Now that I’ve left I’m not going home

You can come to and we’ll leave today
You take my hand, escape is the theme
Hope I don’t wake we’ll stay in this dream

Lost demo song
Mark and the guy formally called Steve :-) Good to hear you two together again from the aether. Nice flowing, "escapist" vibe. Recording quality is pretty good considering. Thanks, Take care.

Ain't it great....
... to find lost nuggets of gold - and this is that. Sometimes the demo has more energy and presence that the later produced song. Again, this "demo" stands on its own. Nice one guys...
