#LyricsNSongs (13) ....See My Smiles Feel my Tears
Track 17 of Busted Dreams

See My Smiles Feel My Tears

w/m Sam Reeves

Hearts can't hurt in heaven
Baby they sure can here
Can't hide ur feelings in no mirror oh
See My Smiles Feel My Tears

Separation from that one hurts like hell
Whether it's moments or moments turned to years
Oh keep my heart in heaven with you baby
Can I keep this heaven with you here

Cause hearts can't hurt in heaven
Baby they sure can here oh
Here it's the closest thing to hell I ever felt
See My Smiles Feel My Tears
Baby please see My Smiles Feel My Tears

(See My Smiles Feel My Tears) Oh oh oh oh
(See My Smiles Feel My Tears) Oh oh oh

Feel 'em falling for you baby
Falling on ur pretty face
Baby can you hear me (calling)
Calling out ur sweet name oh
I know we''ll be together in heaven
Let me be in heaven with you here oh
Tomorrow when I look in that mirror
I don't wanna (See My Smiles Feel My Tears)
Said I don't wanna (See My Smiles Feel My Tears)
Oh See My Smiles Feel My Tears (See My Smiles Feel My Tears)
Baby please See My Smiles Feel My Tears (See My Smiles Feel My Tears)
See My Smiles Feel My Tears (See My Smiles Feel My Tears)
 I need you

ooohh oooh ...
Please See My Smiles Feel My Tears (See My Smiles Feel My Tears)


Baby please See My Smiles Feel My Tears (See My Smiles Feel My Tears)
Oh

Writer/Artist notes: Learning to see, deal with reality may be the same  as understanding ur dreams. Sometimes the reflection in the mirror leaves no denial. Like when that part you wants to hold on to what passes out of ur hands.Maybe that just leads to more dreams again ...ie. "Busted Dreams" or "Busted", "Dreams"

#LyricsNSongs (12) ....Old Rockers Epitaph

Old Rockers Epitaph

w/m Sam Reeves

Old Rockers keep on rockin'
You can hear them when those guitars are singin'
Make one sing for me

Old Rockers are never leavin'
Spirits playin' when that music's crankin'
Crank it up for me Oh
Won't you crank it up for me
And all those Old Rockers Oh

Yeah I had to play
When I heard some Alvin Lee Oh
Jimi and Johnny they set me free  whoo hoo
Yeah they lit the candles so we could see
I want'a see

If I ever say goodbye
I didn't want'a make you cry
Pick up that guitar for me
Play it till ur ears ring  whoo hoo

Cause Old Rockers keep on rockin'
You can hear them when those guitars are singin'
Make one sing for me

Old Rockers are never leavin'
Spirits playin' when that music's crankin'
So crank it up for me
Won't you crank it up for me
Don't you want to see
Those Old Rockers
I want'a see
Whoo Hoo
Yeah
Whoo Hoo

Artist/Writer notes:
Sam Reeves (aka UR S MAN)- In thinking about "Busted Dreams" and dreams in general, I thought of  the end of the dream. You know ...what you leave behind. I know others have contributed to mine, that are both here and gone on.... As I put on the CD comments, my brother and I shared a love for the music and influence of some guitar greats, a few are mentioned in the song. So I dedicated the song to that shared love, and invited everyone else to join in on that. Ha Ha! So, I even decided It would be my request for this song to be included in my departure, whenever that occurs. (My) "Old Rockers Epitaph" LOL!

I started playing this song, and I knew instantly Chris Dair could and would  play the parts magnificently that I could both hear and not hear. So I asked him if he would be interested, and he graciously said he would. I didn't know if he sensed some form of destiny with this as I admittingly did at the time. But, I sure am thankful for his masterful interpretation and collaboration. That part of the dream was deffinetely exceeded!

Production notes: Staging -Rhythm guitar (left to far left to left), Lead guitar (right to far right to right to center), Drum set 1 (just right of center ) Drum set 2 (just left of center), Bass (center to left to center). Drum set 2 joins in after the Drum set 1 rest. Guitar bleeds setup to continue separation but allowing natural transgression across stage.

#LyricsNSongs (11) ...Thinking About It ...Try


#LyricsNSongs (11) ...Thinking About It ...Try

Artist/writer notes: Sometimes something instrumental may generate more feelings, emotions, and thought as much or more than other songs. Track 14 seemed to name itself  following the progression of songs in Busted dreams ...especially following "Hey Blondie". It is followed by another writing collaboration by Sam Reeves and Michael S Morrison, titled "Try"(track 15). I am not sure where "lipstick red" sunrises or sunsets leave most folks, but it smears all over my personal view.... some kind of challenge to pick up again and learn I suppose.

Try

w/m Sam Reeves, Michael S Morrison

I'm gonna try oohhh
To find my way
I'm gonna try mmm
Not to waste another day Ohh

I took a sleeping pill last night
It went straight to my head
I woke in the morning light
The sun was lipstick red

I'm gonna try mmm
To find my way Ohh
I'm gonna try Ohh
Not to waste another day

Yeah I've looked too long for some cool hand
To wipe these tears away
Now I've come to understand
My mistakes of yesterday

I'm gonna try
Yeah try try try
Try

(do do do...)

Try
Yeah Try
Ok

I'm gonna try
To find my way Ohh
I'm gonna try mmm
Not to waste another day mmm

I'm not gonna waste another day ohh
I'm not gonna waste not gonna waste another day ohh
Not gonna waste not gonna waste not gonna waste another day hey hey

#LyricsNSongs (10) ...Hey Blondie

#LyricsNSongs (10) ...Hey Blondie
...track 13 of Busted Dreams by UR S MAN


Hey Blondie

w/m Sam Reeves, Michael S Morrison

Hey Blondie you were holy every Sunday
But your dress was soiled by Monday
As they watched you play by play 
Play by play

Hey Blondie you gave them what they asked for
But you always tried to be more
As you wiped the tears away

Yeah you glittered in the light
Made ur dreams dance in the night
But you didn't want to be loved that way

Oh Blondie you knew the pieces they didn't fit
But ur body it wouldn't quit
So we watched ur life slip away
Hey

You were the sacrificial lamb to the cravings of every man
The victim of a dream ahh that ran away
Hey Hey Hey

Oh Blondie the Marilyn you died for
Was the prisoner of a golden door
With only one escape

Hey Blondie Hey Blondie
Hey Hey Hey there Blondie
Who are you today
Who are you today

oooh Blondie
Blondie yeah  yeah Blondie
mmm  Blondie mmm  Blondie
oooh Blondie

oooh oooh oooh oooh
oooh oooh oooh oooh
oooh oooh oooh oooh
oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh


Artist/writer notes:  (Sam Reeves) Michael had this song idea, and I would say all the initial inspiration for the story/lyric. I responded immediately on guitar and a vocal tune. It was a time when I visited the area again, We wrote a bunch of songs in that time frame. I don't really know his inner thoughts on this song, but I know how it impressed me. To catch a feeling of someone else's dream(s) almost gives a omnipresence about you. Even a daunting wish for a better lasting fulfilling success....that precipitated the end of the song for me "Who are you today"  for all those that are to follow....
Some of the later vocalizations ("the ooohs" as I call them) took in my writing partners style.... other than that some of the greats I have always genuinely been influenced by.
As often the guitar welcomed the piano part, has been a song I have always wanted to record.

(La La La) Out In Colorado
w/m Sam Reeves

He went to Colorado
He's already done his time
Now's he's going legal for the first time in his life
Yeah he saved up some money
Found a place to live on line
Out in Colorado where they sell the herb like wine
La la la la la la
Out in Colorado
Out in Colorado

He says he will retire there
Unless Kentucky changes it's mind
He's even took up baking
He's eating those brownies all the time
He says, "Y'all come on out and visit!
And play guitars every night all night!
...in Colorado they sell the herb like wine!"
I forget the words to the songs
Got a contact high
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
Out in Colorado
Out in Colorado
Out in Colorado

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Writer/Artist notes: Enjoyed writing this song/story(semi-true). It sorta wrote itself well at least the way I dream in multi vision LOL! Ha Ha! Some may say now they know why! started this song out on guitar always seemed to hear a piano part lurking around out there. The thought to add a video clip and it's audio to the front of song was there from the  beginning as well as the participants. A Big thanks to my Friend Nolan Fields for helping that come true!

#LyricsNSongs (8) ....UR Always Hearing More

#LyricsNSongs (8) ....UR Always Hearing More

Artist/Writer notes:
Track 11 of the Busted Dreams is a slight break from the typical instrumentation of the rest of the album. Was written with piano and vocal.Was filled in with synthesized Viola, then Stings with the keys. All was played straight through.
The vocal and piano tracks were recorded live together, additionally recorded by video on two separate cameras.
 The lyrics were started after reading a negative piece about if there is any worthy original music anymore. Of course there are those who disagree, listen, even create regardless of those "Grand" machines' attempted sequester.... especially with an open heart. Even a special one.... and so the song was completed with that special note, heart, and one in mind.

#LyricsNSongs (7) ...We Can Make This Big




This post goes inside Track 10 of Busted Dreams by UR S MAN.
Lyrics:

We Can Make This Big
w/m Sam Reeves

Since love is our obsession 

We should be making something
Even if it turns out a mess

Yeah we have to take the gamble

That it just might end in shambles 
Whatever we make it's worth the risk oh

Yeah we can make this big We can make this big

Oh We can make this big We can make this big

Yeah our love will be amazing

It'll be just like a nation
We will never hold it back


Yeah it'll march just like an army
Capture us and then carry
Us further than we've ever been


Yeah oh we can make this big Yeah 
We can make this big
Oh yeah we can make this big (Yeah) 
We can make this big


Just like clay we can mold it

Make it turn out a gem
We might feel some pressure

But i promise this diamond yet

I know we can make this something big Oh
Help me Baby

Yeah we can make this big (Oh) 

We can make this big (help me baby)
We can make this big (mmm yeah) 
We can make this big

We can make this big We can make this big

We can make this big We can make this big

Artist's notes: song evolved from guitar and vocal to closer to writers conception. Song got good response at writer's night performances (acoustic guitar, vocal). Was fun but challenging to put together in the studio. Once finding a mix between blues rock/funk/Hendrix/Winwood mix it felt comfortable.
Writer's notes: early concept was an exercise of expanding "we can make this big" into a full fledged song..... the song just sorta flowed out naturally. Seemed to center around a passionate way of excelling in a relationship. Never a good relationship dream without some!
