Glittering Cities by Susan Raven
IndieMusicPeople

 















Susan's beautifully haunting vocal dances over an ebb and flow of 12-string guitars and Irish whistles. The engine-room of the song features the innovative bass playing of West African Hilaire Penda (Salif Keita Band) weaving his magic around quirky, tin-soldier drums, programmed by engineer/producer Satch Norton.

Each verse is a memory of a great friend who has passed through the gate of death. Each life was short, but full and shining. They continue to inspire me from the realm in which they dwell. I honour and celebrate my friendships with Lou and Nick through this song.

We met when we were children
And life was a holiday
Now you sleep in your favourite land
High on a hill in God’s sweet hands

Yea, I think of you
I’ve a photograph and a memory just of you
I think of you

We met when we were making music
In the city of bells and spires
We were learning oh so fast about
About life and our desires

Yea, I think of you
I’ve a photograph and a memory just of you

You were shining through the painted glass
The colours were a view
There was a sunray burning
Burning a trail that I know now is true

And there you dance in the swirling sand
High on a dune in God’s sweet hands
You’re looking fine I can see you smile

Yea, I think of you
I’ve a photograph and a memory just of you

Yea, I think of you standing there
Smiling at me from a photograph I can see
Your Love, your Grace
Live on and on and on and on and on and on and on

And when I next, I next see you
You’ll be smiling at me
For real, for real, for real
