Creative Brief



There in the garden you held my gaze

I was too young to call it so the memory fades

You stood still, a part of another world view

Where the sun didn't shine and the sea wasn't blue


And now all I see when I walk past this place

Are the traces of you


Together alone in a top floor retreat

I was half in a dream, only partly complete

The music played soft as we lay side by side

The touch of your skin and the warmth from inside


And all I can smell when I think of those days

Are those traces of you


While I chased false fortunes that came second hand

You moved far away to some fairytale land

You found your rainbows in old caravans

Three beautiful children, a family man


And now all I think as I watch them grow old

Are the traces of you


If there were a god then you'd still be here

And all of us wept when you disappeared

You were always the seeker, you were always the pearl

You were always the keeper of a far better world


And now all I feel when I mention your name

Are the traces of you


Haven't come up with my own music for this one yet but as I just write it thought I'd better get it up here for any ideas. Thanks!
