VIBES Web3 Music Competition Week 12 (Theme = Pain) - "Old Flame" (Original Song)

in Vibes2 months ago

Hello everybody on HIVE, and especially the Vibes Community. My name is Jasper, and I'm writing (and singing) to you from Cape Town, South Africa! Welcome to Week 12 of the Vibes Web3 Music Competition!

This week we have a theme: Pain! That fits perfectly with an original song I have written called “Old Flame”.

It describes the feeling of when you're just about to get over an ex-lover, and then they show up back in your life all over again! The pain of remembering why it had to end, and trying to stay strong with that decision and not fall back into a toxic trap… I wonder if this will resonate with you?

I hope you like this one and think that it fits the theme! Thank you for listening! Best of luck to everyone entering the Contest!

Lyrics to “Old Flame!” by @jasperdick (original)

A knock at my door
A shiver on my skin
I've been through this before
And I'll say it all again...

No Old Flame
Not Again
I can't let go
Just 'coz you say so...
When I remember how you walked away
Like it was yesterday...
Your return will cause more pain
And break my heart again...

Why do you come here when I'm weak
I'm usually so strong
It's like you always know
And it makes it hard to speak
Without getting it wrong
But here I go...

No Old Flame
Not Again
I can't let go
Just 'coz you say so...
When I remember how you walked away
Like it was yesterday...
Now your return will cause more pain
And break my heart again...
Old Flame... I don't want to here your name... (Ever again).

Hey @jasperdick good to have you back. I always loved your entries and your original songs. This theme of toxic ex is definitely one that a lot of people will resonate with. Thank you for sharing this beaut of a song with us. See you in space hopefully:)

Hello! Yes, I'm always taking part! The post rewards for Vibes entries are usually great, and so the chance of getting a top-6 prize is just a bonus (that is surely getting more and more difficult with the numbers of entrants increasing!)

One of my favorite songs from you yet, no guess
That punchline with the name, was the best
The pain from relationships can be cruel and cold
But the greatest songs relate those feelings, through experiences told

Wonderful original man

Ah, you also liked it? Thank you so much... and I see your comment could be easily rapped/sung!!

I must make a note of it - this is a delicate song but perhaps I should play it in public more than I do!

You're very welcome, this song is indeed deserving more public playtime, and yeah I enjoy writing initial reactions to people's performances in rhyme poetic form, especially when I am inspired to do so.

Wonderful song, your originals songs are really great. I felt the pain in your voice. Superb!

Thanks for sharing!

Hello!! Thank you so much - yes, hopefully I am slowly improving at acting out/feeling the emotions of the song I am singing!

Thank you!!!
