This blog will touch the Song "Nothing Means Anything To Me (Busted Dreams)" track 3 of the "Busted Dreams" Album. Then the following short track 4 "I Don't Want Wake Up (chorus)".

Writers comments: When it was first shared with the first listener and following it was referred to by NMATM as often as it was mentioned in conversation. It appears to be a multi emotional/situational song/story/dream but sincere. The line about "busted dreams" lent itself to the Album "Busted Dreams".

Nothing Means Anything To Me (Busted Dreams)
w/m Sam Reeves

Dreamed so big
Spilled out on my guitar
And I had to sing
Until it made some sense
There's no mistake
I want to stay
Right here with you
Until I wake
See nothing means anything to me
If your not here with me inside these dreams
Nothing means anything to me
Without you they're busted dreams

So I wrote it down
Put it in a frame
So you could see
Just what you mean to me
Yeah I can live my life
Without you here
But it wouldn't be the same
Oh just keep the frame

See nothing means anything to me
Oh if your not here with me inside these dreams
See nothing means anything to me
Without you they're busted dreams

Woohoo  Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh oh oh
Oh

I know you hear it everywhere
I don't care
Just look in that frame
Whisper my name
See nothing means anything to me
Oh oh Oh Oh
Oh

Nothing means anything to me
If your not here with me inside these dreams
See nothing means anything to me
Without you they're busted dreams
Oh

Nothing means anything to me
Nothing means anything to me

Oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh..
Oh ohohoh Oh ...mmmm

I Don't Want To Wake Up (chorus)
w/m Sam Reeves

I don't want to wake up if you're not around
Rather be a dreaming that your with me now
Your with me now yeah your with me now
Your with me now
artist/writer's notes: this chorus came up immediately from this earlier demoed song... definitely continues the story...

This Blog will touch track 3 of Busted Dreams,,, Someone (A Chance With My Heart). This recording was proceeded  in time by a four track Demo, it seems ages ago. Forward to the Busted Dreams album: Just a sense of fitting in the narrative if it can be found. It is definitely felt, experienced.

Someone (A Chance with My Heart)
w/m Sam Reeves

What do you say when it's all over
Tell me what to say
How do you pick up your bags and just move out
Away from yesterday

Oh I'm not really mad at you
But I'm not feeling no gratitude
I'm giving someone the chance I gave you
I'm giving someone a chance with my heart
Yeah a chance with my heart

Oh how do you win at this gambling game
Tell me how to win
How do you stack all the cards in your favor
If it's like playing Gin Oh

Oh I'm not really mad at you
But I'm not feeling no gratitude
Yeah I'm giving someone the chance I gave you
I'm giving someone a chance with my heart
Yeah a chance with my heart
A chance with my heart
Yeah a chance with my heart

Oh I'm not really mad at you
But I'm not feeling no gratitude
I'm giving someone the chance I gave you
I'm giving someone a chance with my heart
Yeah a chance with my heart
Yeah a chance with my heart
A chance with my heart
Yes there's someone
Yes there's someone
Oh yes there's someone
Some sweet someone oh
Where are you where are you
My sweet someone Oh
Where are you where are you
My sweet someone Oh
Someone Someone Someone
Someone

Someone: Sam Reeves- vocal, guitar, keyboards, bass, programming, engineering, production.

writers thoughts: Risk, art, the bluff, vulnerability, desire, complexity of the game ...all involved when the heart's risked.

This blog will touch track 1 of Busted Dreams, No More. This track spilled over emotionally and facilitated track 2, OD No More (Instrumental) as well.

 No More
w/m Sam Reeves
Thought this was what I need yeah
But you seem addicted to me
Want me runnin' through your veins
Oh tried to buy more of me baby
But I got short changed

You can't have this no more
Yeah you can't have this no more
No no no no no no no no
See I'm not your dealer not your store
And I'm not sellin' out here no more Oh
Cause it's my last time through that door

Yeah I really watin' try'n make you pay
You know that's how users get their name yeah
Oh to you I'm just a rush
Ah be quiet now baby yeah you might as well hush

You can't have this no more
You can't have this no more
No no no no no no no
See I'm not your dealer not your store
And I'm not sellin' out here no more Oh
Cause it's my last time through that door
Yeah baby it's my last time through that door
Yeah It's my last time through that door
No More Oh (No More)
don't let that hit me where ha ha
don't worry 'bout that  No More

You can't have this no more
You can't have this no more

Hey baby I said it's my last time
Oh Babe It's my last time
No oh no I said no  no no no more
(No more no more no more no more no more)
........................................................................
writers comments : addiction is a bitch. only way I ever beat it is to be addicted to not being addicted. It is a success all to itself.We are addicted to something. Not selling out is like not selling short...or short changed. blessed to live blessed to give.... part of the dream

No More and OD No More (recorded together)

Sam Reeves- guitar, vocal, bass, keyboard, programming, engineering, production.
Out of the air- anything else

will pick up Track 3 next blog.... Listen Full Strength on CD

Owing UR LIFE 


I owe my life to several things. But at times it has has been music that kept me alive. It might be easy to conceive that a broken heart , a down spirit might might desire to extinguish the fire with playing , writing a song. I found on numerous times the next works gave me instant will to live another day. If I talked to God I was convinced He said, "Sam finish all the work I gave you before you leave." Sooner or later I know what the response will be. So the hopper is full! So much to complete!
Next come purpose. Not mine, but the songs, the art , the albums , the dreams... they are for those all those  that God wanted to hear them. I don't know how many there are... I know a little of the heart opening it will do for some.... as the inspiration and spirit opened mine! And the thanks I give to the listener because that purposeful listen has given me extra life.

Thanks Sam Reeves(aka UR S MAN)

Busted Dreams... more than just a collection of thoughts/dreams/songs/stories maybe a lifetime.
In it "the artist" takes life as a coin. Some times 
flips it in a good sense, honestly other times just says,"flip it!" till the next chance. Sometimes it seems like a big work of art, other times reduced 
to near nothing. A penny can be a blessing. Some
use it as an insult (a penny for your thoughts). Flip
it again. Take the next chance, even if you got all you ever wished for...you can only share that for a while. One side reality, one side dreams. Flip it again we all do...

It's Not Then continued ..........

It's Not Then (Semi- Live Album version)
I first wrote this song on guitar. I wanted to try it out on piano, I liked the feel and flow so much decided to play it that way as I did live for the video. But I still missed the feeling the guitar gave. I added bass and some organ too ... this is what I ended up with ..... a story full of conversations ... so here is to now ..... ITS NOT THEN ...... On You Tube Final album mix ....thanks for following the process with me .......

Yeah I am Indie I didn't know what that was when I started doing music in the open spaces again. Yea I am Indie, but I had to ask the question, What is Indie?
Being indie puts the whole ball in your court.Everything rest on your shoulders. Even if you have help you started that ball a rolling.... gives you a real chance to be real (not saying anyone else is not)! The main challenge is just getting to the people that like or love what you do the first time! Thanks to all of you that support and generate paid listens and all of you that buy copies of music, and other items from UR S MAN. And for the other Indie artist you support thanks for keeping new music alive you choose. Sam Reeves aka UR S MAN
