    HEAVEN SENT

    Achim G

     

    Would you stay with me just for a little while? 

    Yes I would!

    Would you rescue me, if I'd fall down deep from high above the sun?

     

    If silence gives consent, words appear absent, 

    nothing is required to say when you look at me

     

    I want you'd take me by the hand

    Don't you know that Love is Heaven Sent 

     

    Would you share with me one moment of your life?

    Yes I would!

    Would you guide me through narcotic milky ways, until I fly away? 

     

    You've thrown me completely with all that you've given 

    and nothing was taken away by fear and by pain

    It feels fresh like in rain

     

    I want you'd hold me like a friend 

    You may learn that Love is Heaven Sent 

     

    You know that Love is Heaven Sent 

    You know that Love is Heaven Sent

    You know ... 

     

    My soul leaves my body, peaceful and softly, 

    nothing is left for the day, 'til I pass away

    Can you hear them praying?

     

    Follow my footprints in the sand 

    We both will find the promised land

    I feel for you until the end 

    I believe that Love is Heaven Sent

    Yes, I believe that Love is Heaven Sent

     

    Would you stay with me until the end of time?

    Wish I could!

    Lyrics

    Conversation with a Whale (Lyrics & Music by Achim G)

    (Prologue - the Dolphins call)

    Everybody feels, everybody hears, everybody dreams

    You, We, You

    Everybody hates, everybody loves, everybody hope 

    You, We, You

    Everybody wins, everybody fails, everybody learns

    You, We, You

    Everybody tries, everybody lives, everybody dies 

    You, We, You

    Is there anybody out there, who'd share some thoughts with me?

    When all rainbows are painted in fading grey 

    I wonder day and night

    Do you feel the pain?

    Brother, I wanna know how to overcome?

    Come and see how smooth and bright 

    Brave Whales never fear wind over tide 

    No, No, No, No, No, No, No

    But it breaks my Heart every time, when I hear them singing 

    Even those made of granit 

    "God Help me to Save our Planet"

    Mother Nature's sent a Message

    Almost late! So let's get started soon!

    No need to promise the Moon

    You got it? 

    soon ...

    Have you seen my Whale? 

    Might have lost my Whale!

    Do you know my Whale? 

    Could it be your Whale? 

    Can you hear my Whale? Voices of all Whales! Listen to my Whale, This Song's about my Whale! 

    Interlude - Jumping Whale Drum Solo

    Don't rush! Don't rush! Take your time my friend

    We gonna take our last breath together in the silence, without any pain

    Lord, I wanna know how to overcome?

    Come and learn the Worth of Truth,

    My Majestic Whale gliding through the Blue

    Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue 

    But it breaks my Heart every time, when he talks to me

    Listen to his Complain, now ... please

    Well my friend, it's not fantastic

    We're living in an Ocean full of Oil and Plastic

    But sooner or later you will see, 

    there ain't a Difference between You and Me

    Moonlight and Stars keep shining, 

    even if the Children of the Poorest dying too soon 

    ... way too soon 

    One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight

    Everybody has to change before it's too late

    Black or Yellow or Brown or White or Red 

    Skin colour doesn't matter, we walk straight-ahead! 

    One step Left, and One step to the Right

    Everybody gotta move before he's outta sight

    Far to late! My whale is forever gone!

    I wanna hear your praying for the Good! soon ...

NOTES
Achim G is having a conversation with a whale. He, the whale complains about us, the "human beings". Instead of taking care of mother earth we are longing for the moon and planets. This "Concerto Akdeniz" version of the song "Conversation With A Whale" is more simple and rough, acoustic percussion oriented, being influenced by the late summer early autumn season of the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions.

Story

 About the song

The song "Refugees On The Rainbow" deals with the tragedy we are currently facing, especially here in eastern Europe, on the mind of the Enlightenment, were many children of migrants grew up more or less safely in middle Europe. But at an age of eighteen forced by the government to return to the original country (of their parents). They don't even speak the language and have to survive somehow, completely left on their own. The song "Refugees On The Rainbow" is a modest piece of Retro-inspired-Space-Soul, its groove marches straight as the subject. The guitars are of that particular sweet-soul-classic style as David T. Walker solely can perform it, unique, tasteful, soulful and groovy.

 Lyrics

Refugees On The Rainbow (Music and Lyrics by Achim G)

With trembling fingers high above the Balkan mountains

Falling rainbows down to valleys of black sea

We follow footprints on a path to nowhere

Watch out! Border-fences at 45 degrees

SOLO (Guitar Solo David T. Walker during Ney flute and Saz)

We wanna get up for you

We gonna know what to do

Stateless, homeless Refugees have nothing left to loose

Another homeless Child

Its future is denied

"Humanitarian Advocacy" where are you tonight?

We wanna just stay alive

We gonna try to survive

Rejection, prosecution, our own citizenship deprived

We wanna get up for you

Those governments are sued

The other twenty millions are ready in the queue

There’ll be a time (There will be a time)

When all the water turns into wine (Water into Wine)

religious liberty ain't a crime in Paradise (sign of time in Paradise)

Now, I'm on my own

but I am not alone

well, I'm on my own

but I am not alone

(Chorus line: Da Capo al Fine)

I really wonder why no one worries and I doubt that is alright

with akin to fascism they say: "like Parasite!"

I really wonder why no one worries and I think it's not OK

it'll boomerang on US until the final judgement day

Refugees On The Rainbow

Refugees On The Rainbow

Refugees On The Rainbow

Story

About the song

"Conversation with a Whale" is a groundbreaking Heavy-Soul ballad, a musical collaboration of Achim G and David T. Walker. The Ballad "Conversation With A Whale" sounds fresh and healthy imperfect, even sounds like a spiritual Gospel tune.  It slightly has the glories of MJ's "We Are The World", the sweetness of his "Heal The World" and the Tragedy of his "Earth Song", the longing of Prince's "Purple Rain", the yearning pain of Marvin Gaye's "Distant Lover" and the gorgeousness of Alanis Morisette's "Everything". "Conversation With A Whale" sounds unique. The deviation from perfection is character! Achim G is having a conversation with a whale. He, the whale complains about us, the "human beings". Instead of taking care of mother earth we are longing for the moon and planets.

Achim G contacted David T. Walker and asked him to play guitar on the song "Conversation With A Whale". David T. Walker received the demo-version of the song via internet, and he enjoyed listening to it. David T. Walker recorded guitars for Achim G's song "Conversation With A Whale" in USA and delivered his guitar tracks via the Internet to Luxembourg. This was the beginning of an Internet Collaboration with a legendary Soul Giant. Every note of this man is timeless Creativity and pure Passion. Lord Have Mercy!

Story

About the song

Soulful performed vocals with sparkling fresh spontaneity, a self-produced authentic musician craftsmanship by multi-instrumentalist "Achim G" who catapults his soul missile "Slavery" in the Heavy-Rock-Soul heaven of the 21 century. God Have Mercy!

"Slavery" is a 2:59 minutes call for freedom and justice in form of a musical soul bomb. Achim G seamlessly ties together musical genres like Rock, Pop, Jazz, Funk, R&B and Soul. Striking lyrics with catchy hooks, a recognizable voice, soulful melodies, energized by pushing drum grooves coupled with a solid music composition that forms a very modern produced piece of critical Zeitgeist, this is the puristic success formula of the released single "Slavery", the most perfect expression of an artist's hope, anger, and concern ever self-recorded by Achim G. Carefully laid out orchestration with tasteful arranged strings themes and cut up hot brass arrangements, in good tradition of film- and television composers like William Bill Conti and Laurie Johnson. Merciless rhythms and pumping drumbeats full of Achim G character accompanied by his modern crispy-saturated drum-loops drive his song "Slavery" along the road to a future Heavy-Soul paradise, inspired by the "The Motown Sound" godfather of groove Bernhard "Pretty" Purdie, who would certainly be proud of his enthusiastic follower. From a deep but yet powerful Barry White influenced vocal approach, via rejuvenated soft and sweet whispered MJ and The Jackson 5 tones, cheered up to high screaming Prince kindled falsetto, gorgeously invigorated embedded within rock-solid multi-layer backing vocals carpets, honoring artists like Queen or The Bee Gees, intimate with a painfully soulful Marvin Gaye impacted attitude in mind presented; God Have Mercy! 

The two goals of the song are to entertain people and to make them think. Achim G is against all forms of Slavery. As todays Slavery is mainly caused by our consumption, we aim to sensibilize people. But a song won't change people. You can take a horse to water, but you can't make it drink, that's the obvious boundary. Change is something that people have to achieve on their own. The “blood red hands” on the single-cover artwork symbolizes the core message of the song. Imagine to wake up in your bed thinking about the harm that our modern lifestyle nowadays causes. As we go outside for a walk, we eventually recognize that almost everything people use or wear is based on Slavery. In this shocking situation we feel like diving under water, as if time stand still, being floated by silence, and in brutal self-awareness we understand the root cause of Slavery. We can't believe this glaring injustice and might truly ask ourselves whether we are really the only one who realize this perverting scenario. Then we realize that we actually behave the same as other consumers and therefore feel ashamed. We want to change our approach and confess to the abolition of Slavery. Suddenly the song is finished and everything seemed just to be a bad dream. But in the end, we “the audience” are probably not sure whether it was a dream or not. We are left in uncertainty, but within the awareness of a worldwide accepted injustice that our daily decadence causes Slavery.

Lyrics

SLAVERY (Lyrics and Music by Achim G.)

Everybody shares the same obsession 

a wealthy life in luxury

People craving for the latest fashion

they'd even die for Jewelry 

Everyday I got the same impression 

there's a lack of honesty 

Honestly, people follow any wrong direction 

and this is the cause of SLAVERY

SLAVERY We abolish SLAVERY

SLAVERY We want no more SLAVERY, no no no no 

SLAVERY We must stop with the SLAVERY right now, help me singin'

NO MORE SLAVERY

Everybody gonna learn one lesson 

that our life is not for free 

Every moment of lust 'n' temptation 

a human dies in poverty

If you wanna change the situation 

Open up your heart 'n' soul 

Open up your eyes 

there's so much to do for compensation 

all in the name of SLAVERY

SLAVERY We abolish SLAVERY

SLAVERY We want no more SLAVERY, no no no no 

SLAVERY We must stop with the SLAVERY right now

Why don't you do it? Why don't you want it? 

NO MORE SLAVERY Abolition of SLAVERY! 

SLAVERY We abolish SLAVERY

SLAVERY We must shake off SLAVERY 

SLAVERY (they won't stop!) but who am I to blame? 

SLAVERY since I became insane 

SLAVERY but isn't it a shame?

SLAVERY that no one else complaints

SLAVERY, WE DON´T WANT SLAVERY

It is said to be true that our consumption is the key 

Sorry, don't have a clue how to teach people modesty

SLAVERY, WE DON´T WANT SLAVERY

We could change the world to share our love in liberty

WE DON´T WANT SLAVERY 

You know, they are depending on you. 

WE DON´T WANT SLAVERY 

We are solely counting on you. 

C'mon singin!

NO MORE SLAVERY!

Story

About the song

Feels Like Home is the first vocal performance recording released by Achim G, a man that is passionate about his art form, a man that pores over his work, but is driven by forces both intellectual and spiritual to create works of art, a man that has a boundless depth of imagination, and a knack for communicating those depths in the sounds that he creates, a man of great talent who enjoys music, and who enjoys expressing his thoughts and feelings through the medium of song. Just listen for a little bit, and youll hear what he has to say loud and clear!

About the album ACHIMSONG

The below listed works are instrumental tracks that derived of Achim G's earlier compositions back in the late 80's and 90's. During that time, Achim G was busy as a studio and touring musician performing drums and percussion for acts like Sanvoisen, Backbone Slide, Ünlü and The Challengers. But in his spare time, he composed songs and designed sounds and loops. In late 2005, Achim G has compiled a few tunes into his first instrumental album release ACHIMSONG, an album which earned great respect in this musical genre.
