Description
I did this song a year ago.

I think the lyrics of this song are pretty straightforward. I chose the synth because it reminded me of the music for the game endings of old Nintendo and Game Boy games, when the hero comes home.

I also imported some Americana vocal harmonies for similar reasons.

Lyrics
I'll be there
tomorrow
like in those black and white reels
it'll be exactly how you'd imagined it to be

by the doorstep
I'll be knocking
time to turn that radio down
you'll see me by the window
this time you won't be dreaming

how've you been?
oh, don't be sad
the next thing you know
I'll be ringing the doorbell

I know
it's been far too quiet
and a little cold
but that's about to change

You'll know that
I'm near when
when the flocks are swooping down
and when the dandelions bloom
I'll be there

Warm vocal - I like the tone of your voice. Interesting sound in the backing. Not familiar with the Nintendo games music and not entirely convinced it's the best sound for this very beautiful song, but I did enjoy the performance. Quality all the way.

Yes, I like the old video game vibe, and your vocal suits the song well. Reminds of that Scott Pilgrim movie. :)

Really nice tune and you sing it very well. The 8bit game sounds add to the charm. The choral vocals add an almost pastoral vibe.
