Lyrics by Me

Music & Performance by Mahal Adams

(vs. 1)

Never felt it

Never held it

December you remind me

I ain't got it

 

Love, it's evaded me

Long enough

December you're so cold

Left with no one to hold

All you do is remind me

I've got no one


(chorus)

Snow falls

Wind beats walls

Weather turns cold

We keep getting old


Lock the door

Pretend there's more

Fade into the dark

 

(vs. 2)

If only you knew

How I felt

Maybe you'd care

Maybe we'd share

Something

 

I long for you

I long for someone

I long for true

Love


Where are you,

Right now?

Where are you?

Are you warm?

Are you happy?

Do you miss me

Like I miss you?

Do you need me

Like I need you,

Right now?


(chorus)

Snow falls

Wind beats walls

Weather turns cold

People just keep getting old


Lock the door

Pretend there's more

Fade into the dark


(instrumental break)


(vs.3)

Never felt it

Never held it

December you remind me

I ain't got it


Love, it's evaded me

Long enough

December you're so cold

Left with no one to hold

All you do is remind me

I've got no one

No one at all

 

(chorus)

Snow falls

Wind beats walls

Weather turns cold

We keep getting old


Lock the door

Pretend there's more

Fade into the dark

The dark of December

Holy Moly! That was beautifully done.
I enjoyed this a humongous pile.
Terrific voice and music, that brought the lyrics alive.
Sweet, Damn Sweet.
Just wonderful.

Everything was beautiful. I thought the vocals were outstanding. Question: Why aren't you on American Idol? You would win Mahal. Nice lyrics as well. Who are the musicians on this. I liked the piano. Added a touch of melancholy to it. Beautiful.

@El Roi': Nice to see a fellow musician here.

@Jip: A big heartfelt thank you. I enjoyed collaborating this with Nathan.

@Russell: When American Idol started, I did think of joining but unfortunately I live so far away, and now that I'm 30, I've reached their age limit.
I did all the instrumentation in this piece. Thank you so much for liking it.

This isn't really my cup of tea - I'm mostly about eighties goth and old-school heavy metal - but it is a very well constructed and performed piece, Mahal's voice really is quite lovely. I do know some people who will almost certainly love it so I've sent them a link, which is mostly what this comment is about. I hope you don't mind me doing that.
American Idol? If it's anything like Cowell's programs over here they'd just chew up something that, whatever my view on it, is clearly heartfelt and carefully constructed before spitting out something bland and horrible.
Anyway, I hope this goes somewhere great for you both and I'm now off to listen to some more wailing and dischordant riffs...Each to their own!

Hey, Christopher, I definitely don't mind if you share it. We're actually in the process of discussing an album... cool eh?

One thing that I admire are musicians who have an open mind and a broad perspective about music and not just being tied down to one genre. Thus, Christopher, knowing that you enjoy goth and heavy metal music but seemingly enjoyed this out-of-your-box piece has truly made me smile. I grew up and got heavily influenced by glam rock, 90's alternative and pop, but the music that I like now is a whole web of sorts, and it's great. Thanks for sharing this with your friends.
