I put the music to this many years ago in a theatre production of 12th night.
Apart from singing party guest I played Antonio and later in the play a priest.
Was all good fun.

Lyrics

come away, death


Come away, come away, death
And in sad cypress let me be laid
Fly away, fly away, breath
I'm slain by a fair cruel maid
My shroud of white stuck all with yew
O, prepare it
My part of death, no one so true
Did share it

Not a flower, not a flower, sweet
On my black coffin let there be strown
Not a friend, not a friend greet
My poor corpse, where my bones shall be thrown
A thousand thousand sighs to save
Lay me, O, where
Sad true lover never find my grave
To weep there

It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

I can promise you a future of slow decline.

And there you have it.

Interesting @rightly and very good of Bill to lend you a helping hand. There are some interesting interweaving musical sequences to compliment your intriguing vocals. Yet another fascinating listen  :)

There's some really talented folks on this forum.
I'm often humbled round here, it's good for me.

Hola @rightly
No había visto esta canción!!!

I read the lyric before listening to the song and I was worried but then I heard you and I thought ... This man flies high dying in his song ;)

Outside of jokes, it is a very intimate song, with frasses that lead me to other Shakespearean stories, as you indicate but always being you.
I really liked the particular arrangement that surrounds the song and I love seeing you play with your voice, another way to fly.

Stay well
Mora
I did not know that to live we had to die so many times

it's a wee bit out there for my tastes, some nice instrumental nuances (bit bassy in the mix which made it a bit muddy, I had to turn my phones down .. and I like bass!)
I was getting shades of bowie in his more experimental phase which really is no bad thing. Lyrically it didn't really connect with me but probably because it was such an unusual source point but that's not really and issue to me its more of a sonic journey - I'm not sure it would make it on to my daily playlist but It was a cool thing to listen to and I'm glad you shared it

Well you know what I think. You're so fearless with your music and I love it!! I just don't know how you do this stuff. I'm a rock n roller and I'm not adventurous like this, but I'm full of admiration. Great track :)

interesting post!

oh, I'm "out there" to stay!!

I like bass too,
TBH, I think my expensive studio phones are lying to me, I never trust them.
I've been off with bass before, but this sounds good to me on a good system, (or from my phone)
It's difficult to side step Bowie, as he was playful, a skinny English white fella.

Lyrically, I like the classics but not exclusively. I like hip hop lyrics too.
I hope you enjoyed the listen.

I hear you've dug out the harp again @rightly

The funny thing about this is I would have believed it (not being familiar with this particular Shakespeare rhyme) if you told us you'd written the lyric too..

I think it's a very suitable melody and production for the words...

Inventive as always - very impressive!

yes, the harp is really something, m'thinks.

The lyrics are lovely, I could never do that, they're from another time.

exciting times for me musically.

Hi Rightly,

Sounds theatrical for sure.
Has a grand feel to it, but also a somehow creates a sense of loneliness through the vocal.
You've put the Bard to good use.

Thanks digger.
That's a good description.
I like the theatrical in the right place.
And also exploring the human condition. This poem contemplates mortality.
I think I might be finding my voice.
