Track number 4 on my CINEMATIC EP is a vulnerable piano ballad called ‘Memories’. It features the powerful lead vocals of Yasemin Tounjel, and is about trying to put all the bits and pieces of a broken relationship back together again. The minimalist orchestration combines grand piano, percussion and rich vocal harmonies simply and effectively, portraying the raw vulnerability of the persona.

“…tell the world why you still believe in fixing shattered memories.”

Lead Singer

Yasemin Tounjel is not only a beautiful singer and a drop-dead-gorgeous woman, but she’s also a very good friend. Meeting at university, she was the first singer I ever recorded, and I vividly remember getting goosebumps the first time I heard her sing. She is always a pleasure to work with and I look forward to many more collaborations in the future.

LYRICS

.

And all those promises we made,
And all those shattered memories.
They lie in pieces on the floor.

.

So tell me how it came to this,
When we started out so strong.
Please tell me where it all went wrong.

.

So pick me up off the floor.
This broken life worth fighting for.
And tell the world why you still believe,
In fixing shattered memories.

.

So find the cracks,
That formed between us.
Fill them in. Don’t tear us down.
Don’t give up. I’ll come around.

.

And all those lies,
And all those broken 
Bits and pieces of our lives.
We’ll cut them loose,
Let’s start again.

.

So pick me up off the floor.
This broken life worth fighting for.
And tell the world why you still believe,
In fixing shattered memories.

.

Memories
