The House of Special Purpose

I used to know where I was headed

Or at least I thought I did

Chasing love and other glory

Like some pharaoh kid

But things have changed and times are different

And those pleasures have fled

Feeling lost and feeling empty

And trapped inside my head...


There are ghosts of friends and lovers

They carry on and on and on

In this house of special purpose

Where their memory has gone


She told me once I shouldn’t worry

At least that’s what she said

As dreams became tarnished and faded

And that road reached its end

But listen close and hear the whispers

As they still carry me

We are holding out for nothing

In the sweet cacophony...


There are ghosts of friends and lovers

They carry on and on and on

In this house of special purpose

Where their memory has gone

  • I can imagine this song being really powerful performed live. It's a really good, memorable song and I like the production here because isn't isn't overdone. Everything sits in the mix very nicely. Strong vocals and a great instrumental interlude. I really enjoyed this.😀

    Solid song and great performance! The vibe and atmomsphere reminded me of the Cure from the 80s.

    Cheers,

  • That feels really tight. Good music. Memorable lyric.

    Not sure about "House of special purpose" it feels a little bland.

    Does have an 80s vibe going, but I like that!

    Good stuff.

  • Lovely beat, I am digging this music.

    The melody and the lyrics are so well arranged.

    This message is quite sad and very real.

    Before the pandemic, I was singing regularly in this Memory Care Unit in our town, and we had a great time.

    I need to get back in there, and have fun with the group again!!!

    Love the guitar solo.

  • The vibe of the music and vocals complements the lyrics perfectly. I like the theme. It is very relatable, and the delivery feels spot on. I enjoyed the listen very much.

    Well written and performed, kind of laid back. I liked it. Most of what I listen to is more energetic. Good job

  • Really nice, smooth vibe and great performance and production. The instrumentation is great. I don't totally understand the lyrics but that's fine because my mind puts different partly formed interpretations on them as it goes on.
