Lyrics
Autumn Leaves Are calling Words & Music FRANCISCUS HENRI
(Orient Pacific music)
I’m looking in the mirror of the future
At the reflections of the past
The bully boyhood days of school are over
I’m glad. I’d hope they wouldn’t last
If there were friends
They are all forgotten
I knew their names
But the faces have all changed
They remind me of forgotten obligations
But the price is high
And no one wants to pay

Autumn leaves are calling we are falling

The dead are asking us to stop remembering
They’re begging us to stop calling their names
Their battle’s fought: the war is over
The Glory isn’t ours to claim
We are shooting children in the playground
Priests are standing on their graves
With one hand they are holding the bible
With the other hand they misbehave

Autumn leaves are calling we are falling

They are making lists of everything that’s broken
Recording all the music that’s been made
Burning all the books I haven’t read yet
They are banning all of Shakespeare’s play
I’m waiting for the sirens to start blowing
I’ve tried to draw the water from the well
My eyes are turned up to the heavens
My feet are slowly sinking into hell

Autumn leaves are calling we are falling

Autumn Leaves are Calling
Sweet tune. Strong lyrics. I really like the arrangement. I wasn't expecting the heavier rock guitar parts but they do fit the arrangement quite well.

The acoustic tone with the snare. The double tracking vox kept the verses interesting and really enjoyed the harmony and guitar lines around the chorus.
Good work!

Tried to make it as punchy as possible so I didn't worry about matching the the double vocals. I got the lyrics wrong in the first verse but kept them and it worked..I figured wrong lyrics work most gigs so why not now!

Some very fine, contemporary lyrics, Franc. Wry and thoughtful. The staccato nature and affected vocals of the verses contrast significantly with the flowing nature of the chorus. Interesting choice. To me, the verse vocal style seems to just take the focus away a bit from the seriousness of the message? Perhaps that was your intention... Phil has added some tasty, sympathetic guitar lines and the whole song has a very polished feel. Thanks for sharing it with us. Kind regards, Peter.

Calling
Thanks for having me onboard with this one, Franc. It was a lot of fun hearing it develop, even though it seriously got inside my head and I couldn't hear anything else for a while :-)

Can you hear them?
Hi phil A WARNING!
I've discovered if you go into a dark room and put your fingers in your ears you can still hear the chorus.

Strong lyrics, sung well. I like the juxtaposition of the words with singing style and the bouncy nature of the tracks. Mix is all there in my ears. Overall good song! Thanks.

This is a fine tune. Well recorded and nicely performed. I like when the electric guitar comes in. This song deserves more listens!

Have listened 3X, now...
as I listen:
Nice pace. Vocal delay/subtle harmonies enjoyed. 1:30 and 3:20 - chorus grows.. like a lot. Maracas, very nice, spicy electric guitar. I haven't had a chance to hear the words as I'm enjoying the sounds too much.
