The Drawing Room - The Song

Key Am
BPM 54
Time 03.56

Golden light streams
Warm airy dreams
And filters through the autumn air

We held each other tight
On warm summer nights
I always loved to meet you there
In the drawing room

I do not know if you'll return
For change is always certain
I'll steal away until you do
Behind these lush blue curtains

In the drawing room
Just to be with you
In the afterglow of love
Afterglow of love with you

(Break)

Golden light streams
Warm airy dreams
And filters through the autumn air

We held each other tight
On warm summer nights
I always loved to meet you there
In the drawing room

I do not know if you'll return
For change is always certain
I'll steal away until you do
Behind these lush blue curtains

In the drawing room
Just to be with you
In the afterglow of love
Afterglow of love with you

In the drawing room
The drawing room

A young woman, during WWI, in a grand house, with a beautiful drawing room, awaiting her lover. However, one never knows if one's lover will return, "for change is always certain..", especially in war.
Story Behind the Song:
Toward the end of July 2022, Cyndi contacted me to say that she had been inspired to write lyrics to the instrumental The Drawing Room. She offered to record a vocal for me to mix with the music track. Not ever anticipating a vocal version, I was surprised, thrilled and very curious as to how this could work. A really constructive and creative collaboration followed over a 4 week period - much of which I spent running on low power with a very heavy cold/virus. From the outset we agreed how we would play things and tracks and mixes went back and forth over the Atlantic accompanied by ideas and suggestions. It all fell together beautifully and before August had come to an end, The Drawing Room - The Song was born.
