テーマ:

Lately, on the side from ROKKYUU, I've been doing a bit of singing. I had a gig at the Australian Embassy where I got to sing a really cool set:

Ain’t No Sunshine
Fly Me to the Moon

Unchained Melody

Truly, Madly, Deeply

Foolish Games

May it Be

Time After Time

I Believe I Can Fly


I'm recording Evanescence's "Going Under" and P!nk's "So What!" for a demo this week, but also may have a CM job on Friday so that should be fun. Also, there's something really cool I'll be recording in a couple of weeks that VK fans might be interested in hearing when the release comes around. ;)

Meanwhile, every so often I take my excess words and mold them into song. "All the Songs" is one I just finished but have been working on for the year. Without the tune (which is super sassy with a jazz/rock angle by the way) the lyrics seem a little lame but maybe you'll get to hear it someday. ;)

All the Songs

Shoobidowop the radio sings.

“Do I love her? Yes, I really love her!”

Shoobidoowop, the radio croons.

“Oh I love him! God, I really love him!” 

 

[Inst]

 

Rapapapam the war drums cry,

Here to tell ya love has come a-knockin’!

Ding aling the church bells ring,

Let’s get this ceremony rockin’!

 

It’s like the songs just come alive

When you look into my eyes.

All those words I never thought I’d understand.

True lovers dancing ever more

‘Cross a poetry covered floor,

As the stars ignite like Beltane fires blazing in the night

 

Do you love me? I’ll never ask.

You’ll never ask the same of me.

We’d just laugh and say, “Oh no, I never did!”

But when you look into my eyes,

Those golden songs of days gone by,

They feel as real as your hands, your hands. Your lips on top of mine.

 

Shoobidowop the radio sings.

Shoobidoowop, the radio croons.

Rapapapam the war drums cry.

Ding aling aling, aling aling aling, ding aling aling... the church bells ring.

 

All those songs of days gone by,

They used to spit into my eye,

And now I’m spitting back. I’m takin’ what is mine.

That smile of yours is just the start.

I’ll take your anger and your lies.

I’ll take it all and make it mine and keep it locked inside my heart.

 

Cause when you look into my eyes,

Those golden songs of days gone by,

They come alive and then the world just falls/fades away.

Do you love me? I’ll never ask.

You’ll never ask the same of me.

This love is real as your hands, your hands. Your lips on top of mine.

 

[Inst]

 

[rit & tacet/a capella]

It’s like the songs just come alive

When you look into my eyes.

All those words I never thought I’d understand.

Do you love me? I’ll never ask.

You’ll never ask the same of me.

We’ll set the stars alight like Beltane fires blazing in the night.
