About BeesI love nature, flowers, giant trees, honey & especially bees. -------------------------------------- ***#savethebees - Want to help the worlds bee population?

But without them, our food crops will not grow! He wrote this beautiful music and was looking for lyrics on the songwriterforum.co.uk. I heard it, LOVED it and immediately contacted him. And the rest, as they say, is hizzzzzzztory. Anyhow. Here's a song About Bees. Hope they are listening.... LYRICS Way back in time Before the minus sign There once was shelter In these arms divine I can feel them Flying through Golden skies Rushing through you For you I can feel them Flying through Golden skies Rushing through you For you Such cold winters night Thanks to you I'm alive Soon comes the sunshine Sweet waters will revive I can feel them Flying through Golden skies Rushing through you For you CREDITS Cowparsleyman - Instruments Caroline Yardley - Lyrics, Melody and all vocals Bees: Lead Buzzing, Honey Gathering Blackbirds and Thrushes: Backing Twittering Trees and flowers: Assorted rustling and planet saving Mixed and produced by cpm https://soundcloud.com/cowparsleyman Jan-May 2018 Release date: 31 May 2018 ------------------------------------------------------ SAVE THE BEE Many species of UK bee are in decline.

MOTHS - Demo "Dark Side Of The Tune" Competition Entry (DEMO / PRE MASTER)
MOTHS - Demo "Dark Side Of The Tune" Competition Entry (DEMO / PRE MASTER)Winner of the songwriterforum.co.uk “Dark Side Of The Tune” competition, Halloween October 2017. Mwu-huh-ha-hauugghhhh. :) I hope you can kindly see past my production pre-master mix to the song beneath, ideally with headphones... Due to re record vocals soon. Watch this space folks. LYRICS AND BACKGROUND BELOW Soundly sleep on silken threads all wrapped up, good and tight We’ll awake you from your slumber Cast you out into the night Feast your eyes upon the glowing light and feed the fires within Don’t leave me out in the dark, dark night you’re going to let me in Break open all your windows Don't leave your cupboards bare For we’re out here seeking shelter and hiding places there But i do so love the morning sun oh why won't it take me in? cause Im cursed out here in the deep dark night to repent for all my sins Wont you flutter on by, my flutter bye cocooned beneath my skin for we’re pinned down here in this looking glass and a thousand years wear thin Oh, the light compels the soul to fly and dance towards the flame let pure white fire ignite your wings and shatter through the pane But you burned so bright it hurt my eyes your metamorphosis (But) nothing hurts more than the shame of the fall my darling Icarus ------- Ok , so its a weird slasher horror experimental trance shanty about moths. LOL. ☺ PLOT: A cursed Icarus and his crew of ghostly moths try to crawl under my skin and possess me - haunting my bathroom, fluttering against the lights, windows and mirrors and trying to escape from the cupboards and art works of my house. They're tempting me to become one of them and go outside into the night. Eeeeek. INSPIRATION: - The HUGE fluffy, illuminous green caterpillar that my son found last week ( http://www.uksafari.com/paletussock.htm ) - Old horror movies - Being annoyed with mankind, even more so lately, I get the feeling of being trapped/powerless/cocooned in both internal and external struggles between light and dark. - The age-old idea of a monster only being allowed into your house if they’ve been properly invited.

Winds of Change VERY ROUGH UNPERFORMED DEMO/WIP V2 11 10 2017, 00.26WIP!! Playing about with lyrics/melody at the mo before recording properly with my decent mic etc next week, all being well (note the tv background noise. What a pro!. Kids were asleep so I'm whispering this into the mac mic.) Limited GarageBand library for bass and drums, but you get the gist. Just chucked down some very rough bongo/keys to give a rough example to work on. Poss planning an a key change at end with another chorus and to sample a windchime. lol :) Lyrics below, but still working on it... Will upload to the songwriter forum for pointers. (link here: http://www.songwriterforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=13905.0) Cheers, Caz ©2017 If heavens falling apart why drag our feet from the start yeah we’re self tied up and bound for the lost and found always flayling around and messing about and never paying attention and never learning always yearning always running around and dicking about staying out all night but always yearning for the winds of change (to) blow on through then i saw you change starts with you
