Author Comments

Here's the first song I ever wrote in garage band.

Its a tragic story of a cat cut down in his prime time. There are lyrics, but I'm not singing them in this version. The vocal melody parallels the string melody, and each line break signifies a change in the bass, so you should be able to follow along.

Verse 1(starts around 55 sec, with the drums)

Golden waves of
velvet fur that
sulk in summer's
light
Whisper softly
gentle purs that
soak my comfort
blanket

Roll in the
clouds and
sleep amongst the
stars

Drift off to e-
ternal resting
pea...
ce

Chorus

Whiskers, my bristly
buddy, those stripes will
never fade for
m...e(cuz)
Whisker's, I'll always
miss you, even if
you don't remember
me.

Bridge

So just look lazy
dumb and slow your
wisdom knows no bounds
You've seen it all its
time to call you
in one final time

Verse 2

Sheperd of an
endless flock of
sheep while Im
asleep, you

always had a
way to pet me
back with your front
feet(so)

Post up on the
porch, one last
glimpse for feline
kind (Don't)

Worry, close your
eyes as we part
way...
s

Chorus

Bridge 2

Ash to ash and dust to dust
We'll plant this bush and when its lush\
It'll stand for all you meant to us
You ended in a pet furnace

Life begins again someday
Just stay true don't run astray
What else is there left to say

ENJOY!
