Liner Notes: 

"Meet me at the station" was a line I wrote down in a book of little things a save. I wrote the song from this. I am using a Nashville tuned guitar for this.

If I like this one enough, I might go back and do more/edit.

Lyrics: 

At the station by Jessica Graae ©2019

Meet me at the station,

I’ll have a flower in my hair.

We’ll find a place in the cold platform there.

I am leaving with the suitcase in my hand.

There isn’t long to say goodbye.

I am seeking a softer, sweeter land-

A place I hope that I can find.

Meet me at the station,

I’ll have a tear in my eye.

I’ll be there waiting-

My dear, you shall not cry.

I am leaving with the suitcase in my hand.

There isn’t long to say goodbye.

I am seeking a softer, sweeter land-

A place I hope that I can find.

Hmmmmm.

See me at the station,

My train is heading out.

I’ll be waving,

The whistle’s blowing now.

Hmmmmm.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

The guitar part has such a lovely high resonance, I visualize it sparkling. I like the lyrics, the way they suggest so much without spelling it out. I read an immigration story in here - somewhere in central Europe, maybe, cold and with other countries accessible by train ... Beautiful vocal, love the way the hmmmms let in emotion that's understated in the words.

Pretty resonance to the guitar and I like the imagery to the lyrics. The Hmmm feels almost like a train whistle as well as a chance to reflect on the words.

A slender story, sound and imagery that invites us to fill in the details. The tear in the eye of the singer, but not the other, made me think of a breakup that was not mutual. But Nancy's vision of immigration works well, too.
