I recorded this song when I was working on a 4 track MANY years ago with friends, before the internet and all these electronic devices. I'm looking to have it modernized.

 

Here is the Vocal reference track (my own voice):

And here is the original version of the song that was recorded:

(original signer is Philippe Leonard: https://www.facebook.com/philippe.leonard.98 and keys were played by Frederic Leonard)

(intro)

Ooohhhh ooohh oooohhh

 

Separate ways and different days,

Why are they so obscure?

Those filthy days of wild textures

It looks I'm going down

As always a path leads to a town,

A town where nobody roams,

Except a soul -- my very own

 

In this city lives an old man,

(Male vocal) It's ME I understand,     ***OR (Female vocal) It's HIM I understand, 

But why is he so sad?

Maybe he's got no reason to be glad

Because the good old days have gone

and today's are not to be told...

 

This forsaken city has fallen

Brights lights have been opened

Have you seen the old man?

He should have taken up his word

He doesn't know the end,

he's slowly sinking in the sand...

 

Separate ways and different days,

Why are they so obscure?

Those filthy days of wild textures

It looks I'm going down

As always a path leads to the town,

A town where nobody roams,

Except a soul -- my very own

 

85 bpm
