Hope Brings Rain Brings Hope

from FAWM 2022 by The Fishermen & the Priestess

backstage exclusive


Colin Kinlund: "Words written by @elesimo on 22/2/22 as a palindrome.
I absolutely loved what they had written, and wrote a palindromic set of chords to accompany it. Sadly, I couldn’t get away with a palindrome melody too, which needs J.S. Bach or someone else far more talented than I, but I did get a chance to use the otherwise total novelty feature of Universal Audio’s “Ravel” piano, which has reversed sounds mixed in!
I added some low end from my accoustic U-Bass, some plate reverb, and some rain and ocean sounds since they seemed appropriate. Chords written out with the words below so you can see for yourself that it’s the same forward and back (I octuple-checked myself!)
Thanks again to @elesimo, and I hope they like it!

P.S. As a bonus, the length of this is exactly 2:22 :-)"


Here is Spring:
The ocean becomes rain
Falling when we are distant

Are we but friends?
You can forgive — can I?
Where are we now
If not together?

There is something:
Know I love you.
For hope brings rain brings hope
For you, love.

I know something is there.
Together — not if —
Now we are where I can forgive.
Can you?

Friends, but we are always distant.
Are we?
When falling rain becomes ocean
The Spring is here
