Crows in the Snow



 Genre: Folk-Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

I found this track on the end of a back up CD recently and have no idea where the master files went so this is the only copy. Thought I'd get it up here so it has a home somewhere on the net. Written and recorded around 10 years ago with good friend Nick Waine who provided the tasteful electric guitar.A metaphor song for someone I used to know....enough said!

Crows in the Snow
Would I feel better when you told me?
What you have to say
Would you feel better
For letting me know

Watching the crows in the snow
Oblivious to the cars
At the side of the road
Content in their own cold world

How can I call you a friend?
You only work in two dimensions
It’s depth you never reveal

Crows in the Snow
Crows in the snow
You’re life in black and white
You’re just a crow in the snow

And I really don’t seek
Entertainment or wealth
Most of the time
I can live with myself
But there’s a rage inside
Forcing it’s way through my tear ducts.

Dead Certain
A ballad form and well played. The vocals are compelling. Crows are an interesting peg to hang things on, the smart birds get credit for being evil for the simple act of following armies around...

Enough said indeed!
Sounds like an "interesting" friendship.

You don't pull any punches.

This has got nice raw feel about it and I'd be interested to hear how you'd do it now.

Crows in the Snow
Well put together. Interesting song, too. Nice hook in the chorus. The extra vocal on the last verse second time round was unexpected but gave the some a nice lift at that point. Tasty outro solo. Thanks, Mark.

Great-sounding intimate and uncluttered performance and recording of a pensive perspective. A lesson learned?
