Feeling Lyrical

November 25th, 2013 No comments

One of my favorite songs that I’ve written has words like this:
Verse 1

The fire’s burnin’ in your eyes
On this starry night
So let’s drink some wine
Leave our pasts behind
Let down your flowin’ hair
Come on, say it, life’s not fair

Chorus:
You know you were perfect for me
You know I was perfect for you
Ya know honey, your perfect for me
Ya know honey, you’ll always be

Verse 2
Hop in the car let’s go for a ride
You pick the place, I’ll decide
Go out to eat, drink some more wine
Back to your place we’ll be just fine
Open the door turn on the lights
Off with the dress, let me inside

Chorus: Repeat (1x)

Verse 3
Put me to bed….Mmmmm….Mmmmm
Wake up let’s do this again
I love you tonight and every night
Tonight’s the night
I love you tonight and every night
Off with the dress let me inside
I love you tonight and every night
Come on honey it’ll be alright

Chorus (if need be) to finish the songs with a few acoustic finger licks.

Let me know what you think.
It’s one of my fav’s.

The love affair continues

November 24th, 2013 No comments

with music and song writing.
It’s the constant distinguishing, understanding and acceptance between effect and affect.

It’s easy to accept the effect in music. You only need to decide if you like or not and let it in.
It’s a little trickier with human beings.
You have to decide whether or not to let in their affect or not.
And by letting in their affect you are able to internalize the person or the human being.

If you are not able or unwilling to internalize the affect of another human being then it might be best to move one to another person or delve into the realm of machinery.
Some people are not only able to internalize the affect of another human being but such people are also able to convert into a form or type of artistry such as music or musical composition to name one.

Negative affect doesn’t mean another person is crazy. That same person may be misunderstood or existing in a world that is different than yours.
There’s no need to cast judgmental stares.
They’re just different and the culmination of events in their life has transformed them emotionally into something you might not find palatable and understandable.

Back to the effect and affect of music though.
I like to let in the effect of music right away.
It’s almost always a queue and leads into the affect of the artist(s) and engineers (theirs not really a difference between the 2 by the way).
The effects mesmerize me and lift me to a higher spiritual place where I can experience my own feeling and my own emotion in a healthy way.
A healthy way that cleanses my system of negative affect that may be damaging or thwarting my relationships.
When all else fails and I’m on the verge of a breakdown I turn to the affect and effect of music.
Hence, the love affair.

It’s sounds corny I realize but the love affair is there and it’s something I firmly believe in strange as it may sound.
It’s a trusty love affair and one that does not result in regret, torn feelings and unmentionables.
It’s a win-win relationship and I stand by it.

My stereo’s busted in the car right now so cruising around without the positive vibe of music.
Gonna have to break out the wrench soon and go back to the original solution that fixed the mechanical problem in the first place.
How dare I sacrifice digital security (readable clock) for the gift of music.
I’m such a silly person sometimes.

Some megastars are belting out some seriously good tunes of late and almost all of them are women.
Katy, Christina and Emily.
Goddesses of wonderful sound (lest we not forget the producers and engineers now).
There is no sweeter sound than High E’s and High A’s.
Octave ranges may vary but these goddesses really know how to belt it out.
I hasten to use last names because it would make me look obsessive and desperate. Not to mention a cyber-weirdo.

I’m just about out of thoughts and need to take the edge off with an alcoholic beverage.
So long and thanks for reading,

I Want So Much…

November 16th, 2013 No comments

To write about you.
It isn’t the right time yet.
I don’t know you well enough yet.
I need more time to think about you and what you’re saying to us.

On a quick side note, my website is advertising itself with highlighted links that I didn’t program or code.
News to me…
I’m not a coder or a link-maker so looks like Google or a mad genius has taken it upon themselves to help me in this helpful way.
Fascinating.
Who would have known that such things were possible and cyberspace had a plan for me that I’m not aware of.

But back to you…
What are you saying to us?
Most likely best to not analyze.

I think it safe to say that you live in a different world.
One filled with few limitations and huge horizons.

I think time is still on our side.
And I feel as if part of me (a big part of me) needs you to come to me in whatever incremental way possible.
We are all climbing our own mountains and seeing our own views in various light and darkness.

Tickle me pink. Two of my favorite colors are light blue (very conservative) and dark green (extremely dark green).
It’s the edge in you that has me wondering the most.
I may say that I’m scared but that would be a lie.

There are so many wonderful people in our lives and sure as Hell I don’t hold them at arms-length much as they say I do.
I’m not holding you at arm’s length.
You won’t let me in.
And I am still to blame for all of this blathering.

What I’m giving you right now is the “Writer’s Belch”, slightly caffeinated and slight sedative (if you know what I mean jellybean).

The thoughts are somewhat disjointed as one of my psychiatrists or clinical psychologists would say. Rest assured though, they’re logical and coherent.
I kid you not.
I respect the diagnoses but scoff at the dehumanizing of it all.

I want to much…
To know you.
To understand you.
Time is still on our side and I’m all ears on my best day.

Now, where were we?

That is question I will not ask because I am not Him and I am not allowed to be part of such a world.

I hope you enjoy because I enjoy so much bringing these words to you if you will read on,
