Secret Garden (Full Demo - YouTube)

Here's a demo of this poetical keyboard-based track called 'Secret Garden'. It's arranged for a full band sound featuring acoustic guitars, electric & keys.

This uplifting dreamy balllad could just stick in your head if you listen to it acouple of times. Watch the magical PHOTOSTORY Slideshow of images inspired by 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

Lyrics:

7 seas of love Beneath 7 saffron skies The writer draws her pen And Shiva throws the dice of love

1 Book of colours And a flower from my English garden Come on dream with me See the child upon my shoulders (Ooh) Won’t you hold her?

Living free In the 4 corners of the world But the treasure that we seek Is reflected in the eyes of 2 oceans

Smiling like a breeze Whirling in the sky High above the city dreaming A taste of the world 5 senses have unfurled Fruit from paradise Afterglow of love still sleeping

Destination uncertain Travelers in time Waiting for a sign No Need to recognize the warning

She realize herself She see her Kingdom come She see the rising son The signs up on the horizon

1 Book of colours And a flower from my English garden Come on dream with me See the child upon my shoulders (Ooh) Won’t you hold her?

I could live with you For a 1001 years I could paint your picture too As you dance in a sari blue

With a diamond in your nose With bells and painted toes Reflecting the mirrored heavens that sent you

Yeah, I could run away Forget myself today Live a life of dreams White tigers swimming free... Find peace and tranquility... In my secret garden In my secret garden In my secret garden...

So, rest with me a while Lay your head upon my heart Close your weary eyes As we walk palm in palm Together alone Together alone In our secret garden In our secret garden In our secret garden...

It’s all about the soaring and reflective keyboard solo-intro that helped this song develop. I doubled the keyboards with a guitar on the outro to give it a more defined melody. There are some subtle variations of the main keyboard riff all through the song.

This song was inspired by a secret love and Park Guell Barcelona was the location of beauty overlooking the city. Lyrically and emotionally intoxicating, a wonderful and magical time high above the city dreaming...

Let me know in the comments below, your thoughts on the song and if it touches any chords in you. What bands does it remind you of?
