Just take a pebble and cast it to the sea,
Then watch the ripples that unfold into me,
My face spill so gently into your eyes,
Disturbing the waters of our lives.

Shread of our memories are lying on your grass;
Wounded words of laughter are graveyards of the past.
Photographs are grey and torn, scattered in your fields
Letters of your mem'ries are not real.

Wear sadness on your shoulders like a wornout overcoat
In pockets creased and tattered hang the rags of your hopes.
The daybreak is your midnight; the colours have all died.
Disturbing the waters of our lives, of our lives, of our lives, lives,
lives, lives...
Of our lives.

    General CommentWell, I have now progressed to the second song on the album. It's nice, but I'm not too impressed yet...

    I'll continue this post in a few minutes...

    My impression:

    Pros
    Nice
    Softer
    Not Catchy/poppish
    Well-written lyrics

    Cons
    Not quite my musical style
    No real catch
    Keyboard solo doesn't hold me
    No real catch
    Feel like its been done before/again

    I'd give it a solid B/B-. 3.5-4 stars.

    General CommentWait a minute, I just realized that it didn't really end right there, and that it's actually over 10 minutes long.

    Well, this instrumental portion isn't holding my attention well.

    Now we're getting somewhere, just before 9 minutes in.

    B-.
