The Walk of Desire

Description
Another song influenced by other works in the development stages right now (drawings, paintings and writing). This one is a bit back to the lovely sounds of the 80's - and once again, a snippet, a short story of a much larger piece yet to be defined. Thank you for listening!

Lyrics
The Walk of Desire

He had seen her before, the girl with the face of a cat
As she walked so gracefully, spinning her back at the dog
He walked after her, his mind was blind
She knew, and she smiled, because she'd found her mission

The walk of desire, the walk of the youth

She lured him into the woods, where she turned around to him
she gave him her own face, and he licked it in hunger
As they danced they turned into a Carousel of Dreams
a tale of a King and a Queen on their gorgeous, naked field

Like
the way that the music complements the heady, energetic lyrics.

The madness and strange character changing power of desire is nicely brought out by the constant, insistent vibe.

Nicely conceived. Interesting.

Thanks for the post.

Snippets as puzzle pieces
The 80's pop/computer game stylings in the accompaniment gives this a 2-dimensional feel, as if these people are caught on the canvas unable to spring out into our dimension. Caught behind the glass of passion.

Your first four pieces in this project are all slices of fairy tales that could go grim and dark, yet all seemed pulled, magnetically, into a light where desire and strangeness and curiosity are not evil, cannot be evil, be are expressions of living. Individually, they are like paintings, a moment captured, drama more implied by detail than by action, with climaxes just off the canvas. As if desire is not quenched, cannot be satisfied, but can only be expressed by cutting the piece of art off before satisfaction is found. Maybe because satisfaction lives in expectation more than we realize.

I am excited for you to share more. Thanks for sharing this much.
