Greetings Hive Open Mic
And, welcome to week 118!!!

Good news is that I can sing again without my throat hurting. So, I get to do a vocal cover this week of a song that is very special to me. This song was released the year following the death of my wife Monica. She and I were in a wreck with a drunk driver and she was killed. The lyrics of this song seem like something a departed loved one would say to the special person that was left behind. It seemed like she was talking to me. There are a few songs out there like that and it is still sometimes hard to listen to this particular song. The theme this week seemed to be screaming at me to sing this for you guys. I hope you all enjoy!!!

Lyrics

Leaving the choirs behind to sing
Of anything fair, of lilac spring
A dream of truce behind my eyes
A life of journeys will unwind
Emergence through idle air
Born under a trouble sign
Will it hurt to see me find?
The long lost peace of mind
Darling, you had me here for a while
Breaks my heart to see you cry
In the wake of incomplete time
Darkness overthrows
Map of nowhere is in my hand
The roads are blurred, sojourners land
So take however long you want
(But don't forget my love)
You've pledged yourself to come along
You're lost in reveries
Holding back the tears
Faint sound of the wires
The butterfly is in the fire now
Lost in a memory you're holding my hands
One heart is in the ground
The other is veiled in the silver all around
Born under a trouble sign
Will it hurt to see me find?
The long lost peace of mind
Darling, you had me here for a while
Breaks my heart to see you cry
In the wake of incomplete time

Saludos Colmena Micrófono Abierto
Y bienvenidos a la semana 118!!!

La buena noticia es que puedo volver a cantar sin que me duela la garganta. Entonces, puedo hacer una versión vocal esta semana de una canción que es muy especial para mí. Esta canción fue lanzada al año siguiente de la muerte de mi esposa Mónica. Ella y yo estuvimos en un accidente con un conductor ebrio y ella murió. La letra de esta canción parece algo que un ser querido que ha partido le diría a la persona especial que se quedó atrás. Parecía que me estaba hablando a mí. Hay algunas canciones así y, a veces, todavía es difícil escuchar esta canción en particular. El tema de esta semana parecía estar gritándome que cantara esto para ustedes. ¡¡¡Espero que todos disfruten!!!

Letra

Dejando atrás los coros para cantar
De nada justo, de primavera lila
Un sueño de tregua detrás de mis ojos
Una vida de viajes se relajará
Emergencia a través del aire inactivo
Nacido bajo un signo de problemas
¿Te dolerá verme encontrar?
La paz perdida hace mucho tiempo
Cariño, me tuviste aquí por un tiempo
Me rompe el corazón verte llorar
A raíz del tiempo incompleto
La oscuridad derroca
Mapa de la nada está en mi mano
Los caminos están borrosos, los viajeros aterrizan
Así que tómate el tiempo que quieras
(Pero no te olvides mi amor)
Te has comprometido a venir
Estás perdido en ensueños
Conteniendo las lágrimas
Débil sonido de los cables.
La mariposa está en el fuego ahora.
Perdido en un recuerdo estás sosteniendo mis manos
Un corazón está en el suelo
El otro está velado en la plata alrededor.
Nacido bajo un signo de problemas
¿Te dolerá verme encontrar?
La paz perdida hace mucho tiempo
Cariño, me tuviste aquí por un tiempo
Me rompe el corazón verte llorar
A raíz del tiempo incompleto

Beautiful performance!

Thank you so much @richie8012 🖤

Man i really liked this! im glad you feel good about your voice again, i had some voice/throat issues few months ago and it can ve very frustrating. The lyrics and atmosphere of the song are amazing and it fits the weekly theme perfectly, and you did an excellent performance, greetings friend! 😎🎸🎼🔥

Thank you so much @juliopalomo 🖤
It is frustrating and scary tbh. That's why when I have the least little discomfort I just stop singing. It isn't worth losing the ability to sing to keep going. ✌️

Nice singing and nice entry for the week 118..

Good one!!

Thank you so much @utyalban 🖤

Waooo, reading your lines it was inevitable for me not to break down knowing what you had to go through.

We don't know the why of the things that happen in this life but what I am sure of is that everything is for the best.

Thank you so much for bringing us this beautiful interpretation this week!

God bless you, keep on going!

Best regards.

Thank you very much @yetxuni 🖤
Songs will do that to people. I had to practice this one a few times so I could sing it without tearing up. It was 9 years in May since the accident and certain songs, this one included, are a hard one to listen to. I usually just skip it when I hear it in my playlist.
Thanks again and may the Gods have your back! ✌️

La letra de la canción está hermosa, muestra de una manera muy poética esa perdida y ese amor que no pudo ser. Bella interpretación.

The lyrics of the song are beautiful, it shows in a very poetic way that loss and that love that could not be. Beautiful interpretation.

Thank you very much @zullyscott 🖤

Brother I think the connection with the song is so evident that I feel that part of that pain came out in your voice.... I'm so glad to hear you singing again, I hope you get better soon with your throat, so you'll be 100% and you can rock like you know how to do it!!!!

You say something that is no coincidence, if when you heard this song, you felt it was a message from Monica, there is no doubt that it was, somehow she spoke to you through what you love to do 🌹!!!!

I really liked how you sang brother, well we know katatonia is a tremendous band and their songs are poetry to our ears, you did a great job 🤜🤛!!!!

We thank you very much for opening your heart with us and showing your sensitive side through a song as beautiful as this one, thank you very much for joining us in this edition of the Hive Open Mic, it will always be an honor for us. See you next week... ¡You Rock! 🤘😎🤘💖

Thank you so very much @fernanblog 🖤
Katatonia is a damn near perfect band IMO. Them and bands like Anathema always seem to write these deep songs that pull on our emotions. They really are a healing thing to be able to feel something so deeply and let it go though these songs.
Again man thank you for the comment. You're awesome 🤘

You know I understand you very well, man, there are songs that are a liberation for the soul, it happens to me with Katatonia, I met Anathema because of you and they are brutal and other bands with which I have the same thing is Opeth, A Perfect Circle and Porcupine Tree (I still listen to them), they are bands that have something very unique and special!

Bro I'm glad you're better and it will always be a pleasure to chat with you, big hug, you're awesome too.... You Fuc%&$ Rock!!!! 🤘😎🤘🔥🎙️🎸🎶❤️🌟🍻💥💫💯

This is a lovely entry. Thanks for sharing this. Your voice is so lovely boss

Thank you so much @onos-f 🖤
It is my pleasure

Wow, you are tall.
You have height coupled with the fact that you sing well!!!

This is a wonderful entry for this week.
Cheers!!

Thank you very much @obaro 🖤
I am only 5'11" my friend 😊

Great entry for the week 118..

Thank you very much @sleemfit 🖤

You're welcome mam

Amigo me alegra estés recuperado de tu garganta, vaya tienes que cuidar mucho ese instrumento la voz! Porque cantas fantástico,lamento mucho tu pérdida es terrible lo sé , ocurren cosas que no encontramos explicación sin embargo, continuamos y Dios nos da fortaleza 😢 este tema lo he sentido,tu voz es maravillosa enigmática me gusta 🙏 abrazos y bendiciones para tí 🌹

¡Muchas gracias por tu comentario! Significa mucho para mí. Han pasado más de 9 años desde entonces y he llegado a un estado de aceptación, pero las cicatrices siempre estarán ahí. Son estas cosas y cómo las tomamos las que nos hacen quienes somos. Tenemos que crecer con la pérdida, ya que es solo parte de la vida.

Paz amigo y otro gracias por el comentario! 🖤

Es así como lo describes,la aceptación es una dura decisión pero es necesaria 🥺 yo deseo que cada día logres estar aún mejor, creo la música nos ayuda mucho en estos procesos y eres extraordinario músico!

Abrazos para ti amigo 🙏🏻

Buenas Tardes amigo @lk66, tienes una voz super calidad, aun sin entender tu idioma pero leyendo la letra de la canción muy linda a pesar de haber pedido a un ser querido y amado, son momentos no muy fáciles de superar pero con el tiempo lo vamos aceptando la ausencia física de ese ser y continuamos en el camino de la vida para cumplir la misión propuesta por Dios. Bendiciones Amigo

I hope you will be successful. I will always be happy if you support me so that my strength increases 🎼🎤❤
