#LyricsNSongs (13) ....See My Smiles Feel my Tears

#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


#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!

#LyricsNSongs (6) ....What's On UR Mind (Oh OH OH)


#LyricsNSongs (6).... track  9 of Busted Dreams by UR S MAN

What's On UR Mind (Oh Oh Oh)

w/m Sam Reeves

Ridin' through the country
Tryin' to talk things out
Then you turn ur head and stare out that window
I can't take it no more Oh I'm asking you again Oh

What's on ur mind mmm baby
UR eyes just don't show no
What's on ur mind pretty baby yeah
Yeah I just gotta' know oh
What's on what's on ur mind oh oh oh
What's on what's on ur mind oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Think we've gone as far as we can go
Hey baby I think we need to take it slow oh oh oh oh
Yeah I believe ur worth the time
Hey baby that's all I know that's all I know oh oh oh
You lay ur head upon my shoulder
Oh I smell ur lovely hair oh
I look into those eyes again
Oh I see ur red ruby lips give me a kiss oh oh oh

Oh oh I don't need to know oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
What's on what's on ur mind oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Mmm oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Writer/artist notes: track 9 of the Busted Dreams album was 70% written in my early Nashville years. I felt it always needed something more... few heard what I had on it. Some of it all lyrically came through experience... The Oh's came about naturally in the extended vision of the song. I don't like to add oh's for Oh's sake. LOL even though there are many many many ha ha!
I always played the parts ...Guitar, Piano separately until this recording.

#LyricsNSongs (5) You Say you Love Me...

This blog will dive into track 8 of Busted Dreams. All parts were played straight through as band members would in concert. Main guitar part in left stage started it all out with basic drum track. Following respectively: Vocal, backup vocal 1, piano, percussion, bass, guitar two(right stage), backup vocals 2&3....hearing a semblance of each in mind/imagination until recorded. This was the 2nd recording of this song, after a previous 4 track demo.


You Say You Love Me (I'll Hold You to UR Word)
w/m Sam Reeves

I hear you say you love
But I'm not satisfied
That you have meant all you said
You wouldn't look me in the eyes Oh

You say you love me
Well if you don't mean it I'll hold you to ur word
I'll hold you till you give in and believe those words
You say you love me

You said you want us married
Oh but something don't seem right
When it comes to making plans
You've never made the time Oh

You say you love me
Well if you don't mean it I'll hold you to ur word
I'll hold you till you give in and believe those words
You say you love me
You say you love me (You say you love me)
You say you love me (love me)
Yeah

Yeah all I said may not seem right
Oh But it seemed worth the try
Cause I love you with all I have
That's why I've held on so tight Oh

You say you love me
Well if you don't mean it I'll hold you to ur word
I'll hold you till you give in and believe those words
Oh You say you love me
Well if you don't mean it I'll hold you to ur word
Yeah I'll hold you till you give in and believe those words
Oh You say you love me
You say you love me (You say you love me)
Why don't you show me (Why don't you show me)
You say you love me Oh
Come Come Come here and show me
Yeah

Writers notes: Somethings you write out of the air are almost prophetic at times. That seems to somehow follow the dreams narrative. Sometimes it could get fulfilled. Sometimes it seems busted after a point, but you act it out anyways ...following UR heart. Dreams can be like video ...I write to that most often.
after initial write an edit to alter ending was made both lyrically and musically with some satisfaction, another part of the dream.

Artist notes: felt close to some  Allman Brothers,  Springsteen, Marshall Tucker Band ...even cheering me on a little in my imaginative collective heart. LOL!

In this blog we start with track 6 I'm Always Waiting For Your Smile... track 7 Tonight (After that Smile) was recorded at the same time. Track seven started as an overflow musically from track 6 but quickly took on it own identity musically and lyrically... played it straight through no overdubs, although lived with both on guitar then keyboard for several months...


I'm Always Waiting for UR Smile

w/m Sam Reeves

I'm always waiting for ur smile
Then I know I'm reaching you in my mind
I see you breathing feel ur hands on my arms

It's like there's candles everywhere I see
UR eyes are asking if that pleases me
Well even more than ever even more when I see ur smile

Oh oh Oh oh Oh oh Oh oh oh Oh Oh
Oh

I'm always waiting for ur smile
Yes you can be staying long as you like
Oh They's no reason to worry we're both here for the night
 If that's aright Is it  (alright)

See I'm always waiting for ur Smile
Then I know I'm reaching you in my mind
I feel us breathing oh I feel us breathing in my heart Oh

Oh I'm always waiting for ur smile
Oh I'm always waiting waiting waiting waiting waiting waiting waiting
I'm always waiting for ur smile
It's ur smile

Listen Full Strength... CD available


Tonight (After That Smile)

w/m Sam Reeves

Oh after that smile will you be going ..staying with me for awhile oh
See I've got plans ur not knowing oh will you be here another night
Yeah tonight yes tonight tonight tonight

You remember dancing to Nights In White Satin ...seeing you again baby it takes me there
oh tonight it can finally happen like it should of then I swear
Tonight tonight tonight tonight
Tonight
(tonight tonight tonight tonight tonight tonight tonight)


Writer's notes: Most dreams come with chances to grab hold of them... I was raised a gentlemen (some type of Southern ...Ky. to Texas).  ...I really think I made my own rules about that though ...words, actions, subtleties, heart, and of course smiles.

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(s) 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

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

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

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

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...
