Acrylic on Canvas. Thirty years ago I saw these ceramic sculptures at a home art show that I had visited. I couldn’t afford to buy the figures but I was inspired to paint them to hang on my bare walls to keep company with my bed, my chair and me. The song was inspired by the art and the breakup that occurred at that time. Forgive my choppy piano playing, please. I’m not really a musician which you’ll notice straight away. I dredged up as much emotion as I could muster in the vocals. It was after all, a few decades past. Nor am I a recordist, but I did my best. Hope you can tap into the mood.

Do You Ever Wonder?
RoyAllenHunt © April 13, 2006

Do you ever wonder where you and I would be, if we hadn’t let love sink under the deep blue sea, if, we had kept friends and family out of the way, if we hadn’t let jealousy rule the day?

Maybe we could have made it then. Why didn’t we decide on that back when? Oh, if we could only start all over again.

Do you ever wonder about lovers in the movies? They sometimes stay together right thru the closing scene. Does love really last forever like that? Or is it only on the silver screen?

Ah, but we saw thru lover’s eyes. We were blinded by passion’s fire. Never suspecting love could die, when it’s fueled only by burning desire.

Do you ever wonder why those feelings go by so fleetingly? If we’re not touching and sweating, there’s something else that love needs. And when it’s not forthcoming love up and leaves.

Do you ever wonder where you and I would be, if we hadn’t let love sink under the deep blue sea, if, we had kept friends and family out of the way, if we hadn’t let jealousy rule the day?

Maybe we could have made it then. Why didn’t we decide on that back when? Oh, if we could only start all over again.

Do you ever wonder where you and I would be, if we hadn’t let love sink under the deep blue sea?

    Thanks for your comments on the painting. I checked out Scott Walker and the Walker Bros., then and now. I had never heard of them. Yes, I can hear similar qualities in our singing. I wish I had his vocal power though. Thank you for the generous comparison.

    It is a good idea…
    the shadows of your inner love.
    They have soul too..
    Quintessence of your sensibility.

  • RosaC. What a beautiful thought. It seems you easily see through to the heart of the matter.

    Roy you are a stunning songwriter and a brilliant artist and this comes together to display your heart ache and longing exceptionally well bravo!
    Chookas!☺

  • Chookas, thank you for that. This song has caught a lot of flack. I don’t play piano well and know nothing about beats, timing, measures and all that but I dearly love this song and it does come from my most raw emotion. BTW, I’m enjoying the feel of the Ekphrasis group and mentioning it every chance I get.
