Well the past 24 hours have sucked a whole lot. Maybe it will get better.
If I could conviningly write/record a reggae song, I would.
Ghost Children of Calico - “To You”
November 22, 2013
I decided to write and record a song today. Here it is.
Just put your arms around me
Whisper sweet words quietly
And when the moon comes into view
The wind will whisper words to you
You’ve got such a lovely face
Everything’s in the right place
Pretty eyes and pretty smile
You’ve got such a brilliant style
You’ve got smarts and you’ve got class
A personality test, you’d pass
If you’re ever feeling low
Just relax and take it slow
Times are hard but it won’t last
Every second is the past
Icebergs melt and change the seas
Sometimes people cut down trees
But you don’t have to worry, dear
When you’re overwhelmed, I’m here
If you’re feeling sad inside
I’ll hold you close while you cry
Ghost Children of Calico - “When the Sun Always Shines”
October 25, 2013
I wrote this a while back but was unable to record it until now. Hope you like it.
When the Sun Always Shines
No one ever knows what a new day brings
No one can change the past
You try to do right, but sometimes fail
And hope the good things last
But you gotta keep hoping for a day
When sadness and guilt drift away
You’ve gotta keep hoping for a time
When the sun always shines
Close your eyes and listen to the sun
Close your eyes and wait
And when the time comes to end the day
You’ll rest your head and sleep
For when someone you’ve loved has gone
All you can do is weep
Also wrote a new song tonight.
Confusion and new situations are inspiring, I guess.
Finished a new song last night and ordered a recording interface today.
It’ll be nice to be able to record again.
Ghost Children of Calico - “I Would Be Gone”
September 28, 2013
I spent the past five hours writing, recording, and mixing this song, using a recording interface borrowed from a friend from the great band Clawhammer. Thanks, pal.
I Would Be Gone
Sitting in the evening, listening to the rain
The dogs are making noise and cats are doing the same
They’re doing the same, they’re doing the same
the cats and dogs are doing the same
Listen to the neighbors shout and carry on
If I could hop a train, you know I would be gone
I would be gone, I would be gone
If I could catch a plane, I would be gone
Thee Fine Lines - “Too Much of You”
This is my main band playing a show here in town a few months ago. This song will be on our new record.
Just played live on the local CBS television affiliate with another band I’m in.
