Song about the creeping realization of depression while in a beautiful place. Features guitar, horns, electric guitar, percussion.

I'm walking past the citadel,
Walking past the circus school,
Walking past the Turkish baths,
Walking past the city trash

And I don't know
I'm blue.

I'm walking through Sebastia
With your head in my hands,
The shrine we pass there is no mans
but stands;

And I'm blue.

Hi Corduroy.

Can other people here this? It doesn't play for me, and I'd love to hear it.

It's working for me; umbú (and anyone else it's giving trouble too) can you toss your device and browser info into a note at the contact form and we can see if there's something platform-specific going on?

Whoopsie. I messaged Cortex. What device and web browser are you using? It works on my computer on Chrome, but not on my iPhone on Safari...

Umbú and anyone else, the song should work now!

This is lovely!

I can hear it now! Thanks for the message reminding me. This is gorgeous. Fragile and blue, just like the lyrics set out. I like that you articulate that process of a mood emerging before it is named.

Also, the travel angle really resonates with me. Traveling leads to time alone in public in a way that can so often lead to feelings like this.

Thanks, everyone! I really appreciate it.

omg this song is so evocative of the setting, and the horns really give it that kinda jaunty-but-sad feeling. Good choices! (esp. the slide guitar)
