Some lyrics + another splatter of words from my mouth

Hey everyone!  Well I booked two and a half week’s leave to work on the producer parties and make Create Your Own Album as best as it can be, and I’m already one week down!

The first week has absolutely flown by and the first of 2 producer parties will take place tomorrow evening. Everything is set in place and 20+ close friends are mine will pop around for an early listening sesh and an all-round good time. I literally can’t wait! 🙂

In other news, all the CD’s sent to HMV last week (Satellite Symphony) have been eaten up and there’s been further distribution from the other guys on the project who are situated all over the world – Global domination! (Whoop whooop!) Checkout the Youtube Teaser.

Soon there will be 5,000 of these guys (CD’s) floating around, and there’s talk of getting another 5,000!

It was an amazing privilege working together with this team!

On to Create Your Own Album and a sneak peek at some more song titles and lyrics:


 

Annie

She’s seen a lot my Annie, its written all on her face – no sister or a friend who can take her out of this place. It’s moving time she’s moved five times, since February; and she can’t lay low, she’s getting close to where I started.

Backroom Allies

Tried to let the strings take hold, every time we come close you fold.. making me wait so long. I wanna know what it’s gonna look like, what its gonna look like…

Don’t go Google me now

‘Cos you can’t leave me in the know; no I won’t forget as long as we’re together (but she said) baby please don’t go Google me now, you won’t like what you find, I said no – I promise baby that I’ve changed…

First World Problems

Parking on a hill – it’s a struggle, yeah it’s a crime. Break a sweat when you can’t get air-conditioning now – You got first world problems, first world problems…

 

And that’s a wrap for this week! Stay tuned 😉

So on to other news – I’ve just finished writing and recording the clips which will be used on the Create Your Own Album campaign! All 23 of them! These 23 are going to be scaled down to 20 during the producer parties (28th June in Guernsey, 5th July in Port Elizabeth) and then…

(‘and then and thenn AND THENNN’)*

…we go live and all you lovely people get a chance to vote! I’m seriously interested to see what you’ll decide and what cool lyrics you might be able to add to the mix! Great news is that the page will be mobile-compliant so voting is going to be super-easy!

*quote from “Dude, where’s my car?”


Okay, enough about the project already! Here are some of the lyrics that I have strung together for the songs so far, as well as a few working song-titles:

Could it be (exerpt)

What can I do, for you to see me? Am I enough as I am, or do I need to change? ‘Cos I saw you from a distance, but you don’t have eyes for me… am I wrong? Could it be that you long for me, as I long for you? Could I ask for you to stay or is that selfish?…

Rocketman (excerpt)

Get back to the city-living, one dollar fights and doing their bidding; nobody’s gonna think for you too. Run along back to safe, I’m not the one to hesitate, running forward, moving up – I’m gonna be a rocketman…

Time will never tell/Don’t wake me up (excerpt)

Don’t wake me up from this dream, don’t let it be a fantasy, I just only want to be here lying with you.  The world can wait another day, ‘cos here with you I wanna stay, nothing could pull me away – time will never tell me when to go…

One more? oh, alright!

Tomorrow’s history (excerpt)

Feel the fire right down to the left toe, feel it burn so-oh-oh; as it creeps up be sure to catch him, there’s nothing stopping him today! Woohoohoo today’s the time, tomorrow’s history. Woohoohoo today I’ve won, tomorrow’s long gone…

 

Check back next week for more lyrics! 🙂
