Did You Hear [the Sky Just Fall]?

by Y. M. Roger

Lyrics Duet Contest Winner 













[strong, smooth voice … upbeat]
  Walkin’ ‘long the beach, I heard a song
  ‘Bout a hundred million voices strong
  It called to me from beyond the waves
  Better run now ... it’s the end of days

 

[just the entrance solo voice]
  Did you hear the sky just fall?
  And was that your voice within the call?
  Time’s journey’s over and
  to me it’s just as well
  No need to worry now…..the sky just fell

 

[deep, smoky-blues voice … forboding]
  The waves they have no voice, you see
  We’re calling from inside ev'ry heartbeat
  For we alone know what’s coming tomorrow
  Your dreams and plans will all end in sorrow

 

[both voices together]
  Did you hear the sky just fall?
  And was that your voice within the call?
  Time’s prophet broke the tablets
  shattering the spell
  No need to worry now…..the sky just fell

 

[strong, smooth voice … warning tone]
  I fell to my knees, the cacophony deaf’ning
  From within and without, I heard them beck’ning

[deep, smoky-blues voice … singing out]
  And the sun grew hotter ... set the world on fire
  The sky came to earth ... to light our funeral pyre

 

[both voices together]
  Did you hear the sky just fall?
  And was that your voice within the call?
  Time’s no longer ours
  got a new place to dwell
  No need to worry now…..the sky just fell

 

[both voices together … stronger]
  Did you hear the sky just fall?
  And was that your voice within the call?
  Time’s no longer ours
  got a new place to dwell
  No need to worry now…..the sky just fell

 
 

[deep, smoky-blues voice solo - intermittent guitar at start of each line]
  Have your ticket ready
  ‘cuz we’re headed straight to hell
  No need to worry now…..the sky just fell

 

[music only here...strong guitar riff w/ single-note end/fade out]
 
[strong, smooth voice solo … slower, a capella]
  Did .. you .. hear .. the .. sky .. just .. fall?

As stated in the tag line, this is written as a heavy metal rock 'ballad' for two male voices -- nothing sweet and gentle about this one. :) :)
Thanx for 'listening'! :) ;) :)
