'Eternal Light' in contest


By Marco Akamawa, 2015-01-13
'Eternal Light' in contest

Hello dear People,

I've decided to put 'Eternal Light' in contest because of my personal involvement in this epic and ongoing true story of a boy and a girl (both of different nationality and background) that at early age fell in love. Both led separate lives in very different circumstances, living unknowingly at the same time in the same (4 very different) cities in the world, and coincidentally met again (in 2014, at the same place in Spain where they met 35 years earlier). Their love for eachother remained unchanged. 

I chose Swedish Cassie 'Rebel' Rugg to sing this song because of her (pure yet undeveloped) talent and because of her age (14 years old); the same age as the girl in the story was when we met on that train in Spain.

I invited German (rock)lead-guitarist Jogi Vetter to play part of the solo, due his overall virtuosity and experience in most genres except romantic ballad (as reflection on the boy in the story, because I only started in music nearly 2 years ago, at age 50)

The reason I wrote 'Eternal Light' was because meeting the girl again after all this time has profoundly changed my life; the way I live, love, act, react and believe. 

Sincerely,

Marco

VIRUS 2 -the combat


By Marco Akamawa, 2014-09-10
VIRUS 2 -the combat





at 5 o clock precisely


routinely got out of bed


used my yoga meditation right


travelled the world from toes to head


 

and now that I have sort of


fought that loving battle game


I tell me how I feel


tellin' you I don't feel the same

 















you're tryin to tell a story

in my head I can hear you sing

your highpitched numbing sound

a not too unpleasant thing

 

you're tryin to make me yours

multiplying inside my body

I welcome the resistance

although it makes me snotty

 

you're tryin to wear me down

by settling inside my bronchae

you're a pretty vicious thing

at least that's what you tell me

 

you're tryin to seduce me

by makin me sleep strange hours

while on my turf you seed weed

I'm elsewhere pickin flowers

 

you're tryin to embrace me

in your cozy countless arms

but you're also upsetting my stomach

she won't fall for your churning charms

 

won't give myself to you

for I am not even mine

to the same source we belong

but hey here you're way out o'line

 

now listen little virus

you're fighting a loosing battle

if you'd make me disappear

where in heavens' would you settle

 

now that I've identified you

while knowing myself a bit better

my words they tell us where to go

so let's follow them to the letter

 

I take another sip of water

it contains some lemon juice

I follow it travel inside me

my own sword crossin' the flu's



Have a great one Y'All!
Love, Marco

AYAYAYAYAY
AYAYAYAYAY should have 

recorded a musicvideoclip

 

but decided not to 'coz 

I didn't think I looked too hip

 

I also had some problems with

ahum usually excellent musicianship

 

and this morning oooh this morning

I'm still in a bit of a dip

 

today should be going to MAWA NPO

but hmmm I think I'm gonna cancel that trip

 

and stick a thermometer in the space 

between my busy brain and bottom lip

 


to you I give the song I recorded last night
to me I give myself an outstanding tip 


 

I should seriously attempt to get rid 

of this flu that's got me in its' grip

 

Have a nice day Y'All!

Love, Marco

 

ps Martyna, Hagit, soon will send the stuff so please don't flip

pps now I'm out of words, at least words that rhyme with ip

ppps People if you missed my new demo here is the link 
I'd be grateful if you'd let me know what you think

Hand in Hand


By Marco Akamawa, 2014-09-08
Hand in Hand






woke up lonely this morning

didn't know really where I stood 

my mind missing my other half

and me in a miserable mood



nowadays it's such a typical thing

over which I can endlessly brood

well endlessly no if I'd have a gun

myself in the end I'd shoot



thank heavens' there was a melody

when that happens words just come to me

so I wrote them down into a song for you 
merengue salsa and happy wish

for my other half you see

 

 

 

 









don't we all have it in us

a bit of good and bad

a moment that we're happy

another that we're sad

I get sometimes real angry

burst out in laughter too

a permanent progression

we live that's what we do

 

important to identify

your big and little brother

for you'd be only half yourself

in fear to fear the other

 

imagine if that thing

called evil don't exist

you wouldn't even be aware

of good that you'd have missed

for hand in hand they gotta go

can't be without the other

important to identify

your big and little brother

 

spanish git solo

 

for hand in hand they go

to make things turn around

one's only on the surface coz

the other's underground

the path to our enlightenment

oh yeah that we all take

is paved with sorrow misery

and happiness at stake

 

important to identify

your big and little brother

for you'd be only half yourself


in fear to fear the other

repeat chorus + span git echoe

a little lovestory


By Marco Akamawa, 2014-09-07
a little lovestory
foreword and introduction to

'Eternal Light' -the song

 























'Eternal Light' cover © MAWAMUSIC



once there lived a little boy

in the garden that was his world

in careless freedom he would play

in imaginative magic he swirled

 

one dusk two dark cloaked hoods came in

the boy was surprised and impressed

play trust us come on let's see you win

coz you are the very best

 

they brought with them a tiny gene

and surrogate for innocence lost

genie in a bottle good nor bad

until all winninglines were crossed

 

in a garden close by next to his

there lived a little girl

with flowers playing by herself

in purity she'd twirl

 

outside her yard, though

she found it hard, so

with powerful insecurity

she managed to cover her purity

 

then one day like any other

arrived a moment in time 

orchestrated by the universe

a moment so sublime

 

the boy the girl so young they watched

each-other in recognition

both feeling but failing to understand

the purpose of this life's mission



 

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? ... "LISTEN TO 'Eternal Light'

 



'Eternal Light' song info:
 



'Eternal Light' is the epic 7:15 minute story based on true events, of two young adolescents that a lifetime ago fell in love on a Spanish train, were separated but never forgot eachother, and met (after both having extensively travelled the world) at the same place, in Spain, again a lifetime later under very different circumstances. The beauty of the song is in the fact their love for eachother whithered time and turbulence yet remains untouched.

 


  • 'Eternal Light' is sung by 'Cassie Rugg', a promising Swedish singer/rapper of age 14. 
  • Lead-guitar is played by veteran German hard-rock guitarist 'Jogi Vetter'.
  • It is written by 'Marco Akamawa' for Friends for Friends organization.
  • All song-proceeds go to Friends for Friends org in support of mothers and children in need.

 

AND OFCOURSE A STORY WITHOUT HAPPY ENDING iS NOT A HAPPY STORY...

 

in another lifetime

on a different planet perhaps

in here and now I find myself 

yet living the moment they met

 

a moment that today I enjoy

recognition I now understand

I am grateful that my purpose here

still hasn't been explained to me yet

 



Have a great day Y'All!

Love, Marco
