Hello Pukumundo family!!!
Still in the new month celebrations and excitement, I'm here with my entry for this week's singing voice. I feel grateful anytime I'm able to participate in this community's music fun, it helps me improve my voice without the help of any instruments and I also get to learn about new songs and sometimes remember old songs that have somehow skip my mind.

This week I have decided to do a song by one of favourite female artist "Alessia Cara" whom I love the lyrics of most of her songs, I won't say I love this one in particular since it's a sad song but I've come to know the song so well that I couldn't resist doing an acapella cover of it.

"River of Tears" is a song about broken love and trust that led one to cry so much... It's a heartbreak song but don't look at me like that, I'm not heartbroken 😂 I'm just helping her convey the message more clearer. Heartbreaks isn't the end of story, staying strong to overcome it is what this song is all about.

There's nothing much to say about the song aside the part that it wasn't a stress for me since I've listened to it a lot in the past and thought of singing it as my entry here, I hope you do enjoy my cover.

Song Lyrics

Still got the flowers that you sent
And the note you wrote that said that we were meant to be forever
I keep them all as evidence
In a drawer under the mirror, filled with empty promises

I don't know why
I keep letting you lie to me
Hard as I try
It seems I can't break away
I thought that you would be the hero
Come and save the day
But you're a villain
Your sins unforgiven

I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
Under the waves I've found the strength to say
The river of tears has washed me clean

Go 'head and wish me well
I'll cry a wishing well
I'll fly before I fail
I'll set sail and drift away
So I won't need you here
Love sinks and hope floats
In a river of tears
In a river of tears

Cry me a river, build myself a bridge
I'm over this, can't let memories become the death of me
I'm glad to see everything that you are
And I believe that you are everything I needed
But I don't need no more

I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
Under the waves I've found the strength to say
The river of tears has washed me clean

Go 'head and wish me well
I'll cry a wishing well
I'll fly before I fail
I'll set sail and drift away
So I won't need you here
Love sinks and hope floats
In a river of tears
In a river of tears

Hola familia Pukumundo!!!
Todavía en las celebraciones y la emoción del nuevo mes, estoy aquí con mi entrada para la voz cantante de esta semana. Me siento agradecido cada vez que puedo participar en la diversión musical de esta comunidad, me ayuda a mejorar mi voz sin la ayuda de ningún instrumento y también aprendo nuevas canciones y, a veces, recuerdo canciones antiguas que de alguna manera se me han olvidado.

Esta semana he decidido hacer una canción de una de mis artistas femeninas favoritas "Alessia Cara" a quien amo la letra de la mayoría de sus canciones, no diré que amo esta en particular ya que es una canción triste pero he Llegué a conocer la canción tan bien que no pude resistirme a hacer una versión acapella de ella.

"River of Tears" es una canción sobre el amor roto y la confianza que te lleva a llorar tanto... Es una canción desgarradora pero no me mires así, no tengo el corazón roto 😂 Solo la estoy ayudando a transmitir el mensaje más claro. Heartbreaks no es el final de la historia, mantenerse fuerte para superarlo es de lo que se trata esta canción.

No hay mucho que decir sobre la canción aparte de que no fue estresante para mí ya que la escuché mucho en el pasado y pensé en cantarla como mi entrada aquí, espero que disfruten mi versión.

Letras de canciones

Aún tengo las flores que enviaste
Y la nota que escribiste que decía que estábamos destinados a ser para siempre
Los guardo todos como evidencia.
En un cajón debajo del espejo, lleno de promesas vacías

No sé por qué
sigo dejando que me mientas
Tan duro como lo intento
Parece que no puedo separarme
Pensé que serías el héroe
Ven y salva el día
Pero eres un villano
Tus pecados no perdonados

Me estoy hundiendo, y me has visto ahogarme
En un río de lágrimas, perdido bajo la corriente
Bajo las olas he encontrado la fuerza para decir
El río de lágrimas me ha limpiado

Ve y deséame lo mejor
Voy a llorar un pozo de los deseos
volaré antes de fallar
Zarparé y me alejaré
Así que no te necesitaré aquí
El amor se hunde y la esperanza flota
En un río de lágrimas
En un río de lágrimas

Llórame un río, hazme un puente
Ya superé esto, no puedo dejar que los recuerdos se conviertan en mi muerte
Me alegra ver todo lo que eres
Y creo que eres todo lo que necesitaba
Pero no necesito nada más

Me estoy hundiendo, y me has visto ahogarme
En un río de lágrimas, perdido bajo la corriente
Bajo las olas he encontrado la fuerza para decir
El río de lágrimas me ha limpiado

Ve y deséame lo mejor
Voy a llorar un pozo de los deseos
volaré antes de fallar
Zarparé y me alejaré
Así que no te necesitaré aquí
El amor se hunde y la esperanza flota
En un río de lágrimas
En un río de lágrimas

Greetings from here and thank you very much for your participation... I ask you a question, does this song belong to the rock genre? I ask because I had not heard it.... You have a beautiful voice and you have a great talent...

Thanks for visiting my entry
Just for clarification, does the Acapella entries also need to be rock songs? I had thought any song could be submitted if it's Acapella... I hope to get it right next time.

Yes, my friend, the song must be rock but there are many genres you can sing: Christian rock for example, and I know that next time you will bring us something incredible.
