Hi everyone! I was going through my old archived folders and found this little recording buried deep within my hard drive. I know it’s not perfect, but it’s dear to me. This short song was called “Turn of the Time”, even though it’s not actually in any of the lyrics. It’s called this because I was thinking about how time goes by. At that time I was watching the news a lot, and if you can recall the history around then you can get where I was coming from. Some parts don’t make sense but it’s a mixture of feelings. It was written when I was 12 back in Australia and I finally got around to making a proper thing of it by recording it when I was in uni. The layers were all performed on my keyboard, violins, piano etc. and my partner helped me record it using GoldWave hence the not so good quality. But I hope you enjoy anyway, looking back through my music, it’s like reading a diary. I can recall exactly how I felt and what was happening at that time in my life. I hope to be posting some of my other songs someday, but for now, here is “Turn of the Time”.
At war now in distant places, I watch in tears helplessly, but who am I to stop these wars? I’m just a writer trapped in my years. Please god help me find myself, to not cower underneath, Oh you forget that time will rest your hand, I breathe, I feel, we’re all the same. Wait, I’m waiting here, until it comes. Stop, just listen now, this cannot end, once I wait, and this I say to you, I, I breath, I feel, we’re all the same. Find myself, do not cower underneath.
I don’t know much about politics nor the mechanics behind war and I don’t really have opinions on what is going on. All I wish for people to take from this, is a simple message which I learned during that time and how it related to me as a young woman. And that was: we should believe in the power of love and let go of fear. In the end we are all the same, like the lyrics say, we are all looking for happiness, some people forget that. Peace y’all 🙂
