This song goes out to those who came before me
And played their songs for me
And for anyone who was willing to listen
Would hear the music of their dreams
His dream came that day he hit the studio
And shaped the face of Rock N Roll
Through the music of his soul
And I can’t believe I heard you in that record store
The next day I would beg for more
That day I heard your music play
Well who knew you were on your way
To the Heartbreak Hotel
Good flowers, they wither and die
Like candles through the night
Nothing lasts forever in this life
Another dream came true
Who hoped some day you’d be a dreamer too
And that the world would live as one
And I can’t believe I heard you on that 45”
The next day you would leave this life
When I thought I heard you speak to me
Through the movement you believed that
All we need is love
The flowers grow; the flowers go – So rock and roll
And I can’t believe I heard you on that cassette tape
You used to play forever; I thought you’d play forever
We used to play together; I thought you’d play forever

‘Fading Away’ is the first radio release from Created Alive.
Accompanied by a single acoustic guitar, the lead vocal is heart-felt and powerful, and is backed by an echo of captivating harmonies.
This solemn soliloquy is about a lover struggling in an uncertain relationship, unsure whether to hold on or to walk away.
With deeply intimate and personal lyrics, emotional and heartbreakingly relatable, it’s intriguing and poignant; tragic, yet hopeful.
