Music from Freelancer – The Silence

The Silence is my first foray into music…be gentle with me. I ditched the Acoustic Fiasco Project for now (i need to spend more time back on the acoustic guitar first) and decided to progress my Freelancer project which is more electric-based. It needs a bit of work – but for now here it is recorded live on a Zoom H6

Lyrics below

The Silence

He’s just a shadow, just a shade
Basking in the afterglow
Caught between the light and oblivion
He’s got nowhere left to go

Promises that once were made
Cast in solid gold, they said
Promises that disappeared
Just dust upon the wind, long dead

Abandoned on deserted shores
Left to dream for ever more
But all he hears is silence
Searching for that perfect sound
With ghosts and spirits all around
But he just hears the silence

He’s drowning in the fumes of fame
Dreaming of what might have been
Slowly slipping out of sight
Scared that he was never seen

Abandoned on deserted shores
Left to dream for ever more
But all he hears is silence
Searching for that perfect sound
With ghosts and spirits all around
But he just hears the silence

He’s just a shadow, just a shade
Fading in the afterglow
Moving from the light to oblivion
There’s only one place he can go
