Music: Avalkis – Scorpion (2016)

single_avalkis-scorpionHere’s my newest song – a guitar ballad, called “Scorpion” (2016). Hope you like it!

This is the first released song with my new artist name Avalkis. The track will be in the upcoming album Tree of Love – and Other Ballads from the Darkened Sun. Featuring f.ex. acoustic/electric guitar and piano ballads, celt and medieval inspired songs.

Thanks to Matti, Hanne and Onni for our recent live band sessions and jammings that inspired me to finish this song faster than I would have otherwise! (There might be a rock version with our band at some point when we have time with our busy schedules.)

UPDATE: Due to request from my good friend and artist Joonas here is the whole “Scorpion” song with the ambient intro that originally belonged with it :).

Here are the lyrics:

AVALKIS: Scorpion – a Sting of Hope                                          Song and lyrics © 2016 Jukka Eronen
1. If I find you, will you be my true…
   in this life, or the next
  Will you be my, guiding angel
   that I’ve yearned, for so many years
2. A light that always shines, please come back to my loving arms
   I have come for… your love
  That is true… pure and beyond
   Will you know me… There’s so much to feel
3. I have a scorpion, crawling down my neck
   it’s trying to sting, but it cannot hurt
   ’cause there’s an antidote, running in my veins
   It is your love, that I can always trust
4. I don’t know where… else to turn to
   When I am home sick, far away
  A distant stranger, becoming a friend
   I have become, someone I once knew
5. Will you follow, will you see me
   Do you know us, there’s so much to learn
   I am here to stay, not giving any lessons
   still you’re the treasure, I almost gave away
       ” Can I give you, all that I have
         for what I am, and what’s left of me
         Can I give you, all that I have
         for what I am, and what’s left of me ”

PS. The original working title for this song was “A Seed of Hope” which referred to “Acid of Hope”. Because it’s interesting to note that the base for this song is originally an acid trance song I composed in 1998. That might explain some of the sounds and melodies appearing in the final build-up :). Also a certain 1980s/1990s nostalgia is present. I will release the trance version too later.

AVALKIS: Skorpioni                                          Laulu ja lyriikat © 201617 Jukka Eronen
1. Jos mä löydän, sinut vielä
    tässä elämässä, tai seuraavassa
    haluatko olla, valo elämäni
    jota kaivannut oon, kaikki vuodet nää
2. Valo joka, aina loistaa
    olen tullut, sitä hakemaan
    rakkauttasi vain, joka kestää
    haluatko tuntea minut, olen vielä elävä
3. Skorpioni, kulkee niskassain
   se aikoo pistää, mut’ satuttaa ei voi
    sillä vastalääke, on sydämessäin’
    se on rakkautesi vain, oi armain
4. En voi tietää, minne mennä
    kun eksynyt mä, kaukomailla oon
    Vieras astuu, ovesta sisään
    itseni mä tapaan, vuosien jälkeen taas
5. Seuraatko mua, haluatko nähdä
    meidät vielä, on paljon opittavaa
    Aion pysyä, luonas’ aina
    Olet aarre, jonka kerran, melkein kadotin
       “Voinko antaa, kaiken sen
       rakkauden, mitä jäljellä mus’ on
       Voinko antaa, kaiken sen
       rakkauden, mitä jäljellä mussa on”
