Okay. Here is another song. I have to admit, I am a bit paranoid about these types of things. People don't usually want to hear disclaimers but I feel that I need to give a couple anyway. Crappy mic, Recorded in the bedroom, 4 takes. For your ears only, my blogging compadres.
So I am hoping the album will be out in the early spring of next year. I am going to start posting more poems and songs on the blog to get the fires going. Let me know what you think. Half the Album will be in the form of a "Mass" If you were reading Shaun Groves Blog recently you might have overheard that he is thinking about writing one as well. I look forward to hearing it. I couldn't believe that I had a kindred protestant spirit out there who thinks the Catholic Mass is well... pretty stinking cool.
Half the songs will be love songs I wrote for Amber. I think and the other half will be written around the Mass Ordinary. I am hoping it turns out in the wash. Amber is also writing some terrific songs as well so who knows what it will look like in the end.
So, my wife has this Audrey Hepburn purse. The first night she brought it home I wrote this song about her. Enjoy! .
If that link didn't work it is:
I will be leaving the raw demo version of the song up only for a week so happy downloading. (for those of you tuning in, there is also a couple of artsy fartsy art songs posted there as well.)
You are like an Audrey Hepburn Grace Kelly
your casual smile, it floats across the room to tell me
you have no other love, lets take a walk under the stars
Outside I'm hypnotized and feelin' fine
you cast your smile, the spell I'm under tastes like wine
and now your moving closer, just like an ordinary girl
You're never empty handed
and every day is like a cherry in your cup
We close our eyes and we are
flying like a Superman and girl
and if we want we can
turn back time and photograph the world
you and I
So turn around and let me see just one last time
before I wake this haunting dream where you are mine
don't let me leave without you
you are no ordinary girl
