A la recherche du temps perdu
Remembrance of things past then would be like sand in your brain, and not at all like this. An interesting and enjoyable listen.

Tempus Fugit
Sed fugit interea fugit irreparabile tempus, singula dum capti circumvectamur amore.

Tidal
Moods so often move through music
like a tide, moving to and from shore
using their power to shift everything in their path

Thank you for the time spent on my offering

ReIntorduction
As I relisten after too long
to the music of my past
I am even more honored by
being considered even
a pale shadow

Many thanks

Lost/Found
If you became lost
hopefully, the notes
the tones and the words
will always bring you home

descend the arp steps
The stepped chords are really cool, and seem to transport me back to the 60s (music-wise) for some un-definable reason... which perhaps is ironic, since I should not be dwelling in the past, but there I am... this does have a wistful dreamy melancholy about it, despite the insistent drums propelling us forward. Love your stuff.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Circle
If we believe time is cyclical
the dwelling in the past is moving on into the future
and retrograde ponderings are merely
looking ahead to what will be
that once was

Quaternary
Good pop feel, fine synth work and vocals (love the fadeout) with a truth in the message.

Nice post!

Sorrow
There is a soaring quality to this which is irresistible. Much enjoyed.
Estella said 1932 days ago (January 10th, 2012)
Like it!
I have to remind myself that sorrowful moments, just like joyful moments, pass and fade. Keeps me from panicking.

I like the concept you've got with this project of songs. Will have to check them all out.

Beautifully
conceived and executed..... there's a strangely nostalgic, but beautiful feel about this, as though watching the past really fade into the distance. I love the performance, arrangement and mix, as well as the repetitive but lovely melody, so in keeping with the lyrics.... good work, regards M

Are we human? Do we exist? Do we have a physical presence? Reality surrounds us, but, within that reality, we have our own realities in which we exist and thrive. We live in both simultaneously and therefore each are two people ... [see more]
