about

'You are the moon' is a track I have played in a number of ways. This rocky version, with just a touch of the Andalusian inspiration that birthed its themes of love, loss and poetic majesty within the bounds of love etc was a nice one to commit to 'tape' .
I like to play it on the classical guitar at a much slower tempo and then it feels deeply inspired by Flamenco come Gypsy come romantic, tear jerking dross....but I tend to do that alone with tissues......:-) This version is more palatable to the rational mind! Enjoy

lyrics

You are the Moon

I miss the beauty of your eyes
Tempting whispers to mesmerize

ooh oo ah ee- you are the one
ooh oo ah ee- you are the one

My touch surrounds you
the lack of inhibition drowns you
and the poetry quenches need
and we resound in the frequency found,
in the center of all sound,
where all form is free, yet bound.
But what are words but symbols blazed
with no reference to the maze,
or the depths of true loves gaze.


You are the moon- ooh oh ah ee and the crescent,
the crescent in the sun

duh duh duh- dah da, de daeh da,
duh duh duh daah,daeh dah
daah dah dah deee dah du daah

So always do what you feel is right
and obey the equation of light

oh oo ah ee- you are the one
oh oo ah ee- you are the one


My touch surrounds you
the lack of inhibition drowns you
and the poetry quenches need
and we resound in the frequency found,
in the center of all sound,
where all form is free, yet bound.
But what are words but symbols blazed
with no reference to the maze,
or the depths of true loves gaze.

You are the moon!
ooh oh ah ee
and the crescent, the crescent, in the sun

duh duh duh- dah da, de daeh da,
duh duh duh daah,daeh dah
daah dah dah deee dah du daah

my love…

about

Ravensong Luxembourg

Ravensong is an eclectic, one man, solo project, with a focus on alt rock and rhythm. I have written songs for years and love the art and craft of it. I am interested in dynamics and crescendo and a touch of rule breaking in structure and approach. Hypnotic grooves and thoughtful lyrics that are often ironic and layered finish of the sonic scapes I try and create on a bed of rock!!- Enjoy! :) ... more
