The Unforgiven, a song with a bit of a twist.  I made an arrangement of this song a few months back and I performed it today under the overpass.

Metallica The UnforgivenThe Unforgiven was one of my favorite songs from their self titled album.  While many fans may hate this album because they feel like they abandoned their Metal roots, I feel like they’ve expanded themselves with this opus.  In doing this song, I wanted to add my own take on the tune and, though it’s not present in the recording, the instrumentation is comprised of vocals, piano and cello.  If you have a Dropbox account, you can listen to the background here.

Only 37 days left…

Lyrics:

New blood joins this earth
And quickly he’s subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules

With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on he’s known
A vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they’ll take away-easy

What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee Un-forgiven

They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same
He’s battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me

What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee Un-forgiven

What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee Un-forgiven
Whoa, whoa

Never Free
Never Me
So I dub thee Unforgiven
You labeled me
I’ll label you
So I dub thee Unforgiven
Never Free
Never Me
So I dub thee Unforgiven
You labeled me
I’ll label you
So I dub thee Unforgiven
Never Free
Never Me
So I dub thee Unforgiven
