piano and female vocal


The sun was warm on my skin
When I was young and innocent
In 99 I was 6 and feeling free
Summer days and summer nights
Filled by heatwaves and fireflies
I was hopeless I was happy I was free

But now the dark side of the moon still shines
Too bright for my delicate eyes
And I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen right through your lies
Told you once and I’’ll tell you twice and I might even tell you ten times
I’m not staying but I’m not going
I’m just stuck in time

That was a long time ago now I fear and with every shadow of a doubt these feelings soon disappear
And I can only hope that when you hear this playing on the radio
That I’ll be ready and waiting for this

But the sun was warm on my skin
When I was young and innocent
In 99 I was 6 and feeling free
Summer days and summer nights
Filled by heatwaves and fireflies
I was hopeless I was happy I was free

But now the dark side of the moon still shines
Too bright for my delicate eyes
And I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen right through your lies
Told you once and I’’ll tell you twice and I might even tell you ten times
I’m not staying but I’m not going
I’m just stuck in time

eYe
total tripping cool groove. great bounce and magical vocal, bright upbeat and with a beautiful message. terrific piano work


Po(t)pouri
love love the start, great upbeat surge, like a heartbeat, "the sun was warm on my skin," summer night, fire flies, a key change, husky, sultry vocal, youthful, spiritual, a toucha magic, love art, love it...


New and Noteworthy
gotta give this song big ups, bouncy, jaunty, a sonic tapestry w a stellar piano, and a fulsome, emotive vocal, touching' on innocence and experience, coming of age...w a beautiful flowin' performance...relax and float downstream...


Choosy Sue's Perilous Reviews
I wouldn't normally review a song like this as I find it somewhat one dimensional so I feel unchallenged. To paraphrase her own lyrics "It doesn't stay and it doesn't go" it's just stuck in time, and that time could be way back before 1999 (or maybe it's just stuck in the same riff) I think this is a parody of some Folk song from Fiddler on the roof or Zorba the Greek where the party goers alternate between springing and leaping then dragging and shuffling until finally they shout "Opa" or Mazel tov and throw the empty vodka glass into the fire. I see the artist straddling the piano stool bouncing up and down with a handy horse whip ready to crack over the heads of bad reviewers. Not sure who wins here, the singer, the piano or maybe the Bolsheviks if they need a song for their next revolution. Why do I now find myself singing Havah Nagilah? - Choosy Susie 2017
