Creative Brief

Hi All,


This is originally quite an old piano track I came up when dating somewhere back to the late 80's. Came to mind, got the piano track down and started a first verse and chorus. Guideline vocals for both pieces (as vocals are still the weakest link after my mixing skills). Lyrics on the table thanks to SimonW completing the first set.



Time is like the Roses (Written by Maarten Gelderman and Simon Wright (November 2017))

(for full lyrics see PDF)


Verse 1

Look at the sky it's gray,

the colors are fading, there's nothing to say.

Feeling of numbness leads the way,

emotional anesthetic that dulls the pain.


Love’s absence was noted.

Here and then gone the very next day,

Life’s not sugar coated

Move on, walk tall, you gotta find your way.



Time is like the Roses, beauty turns and slowly fades away,

Time is full of Poses, stand up, move on or simply turn away.



Regards from the Netherlands,


'Music starts somewhere, where it ends is up to you'
