#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 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!

#LyricsNSongs (4)

#LyricsNSongs (4)
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.
