Description
Written with my friend Jeff Dobberpuhl who is a guitarist & keyboard player in Phoenix, AZ. Check out his bands Psycho Square Dance and Chalk Outlines if you live near enough to PHX to do it. Basically this one's kinda in Lucinda / Steve Earle territory, so if that's your thang, here's my thang... :)

Lyrics
Well, good morning to you girl
Strange to see you out here on the street
Brightest stars have faded away
There's a long shadow at your feet
Birds are screaming to beat the band
I'm holding my head with both hands
Looks like you can read my mind
but my heart's got other plans

Ch:
What we knew ten hours ago
Doesn't seem like much right now
Hard words have all been said
We've both got to deal somehow
Secrets hide in the dark of night
Some say the truth is freeing
What you've learned can't be returned
Andi it's different when you're seeing
The wrong side of sunrise.

Hey, now, mama, give yourself a hand
You got words from me that I hadn't planned
On this curb I sit, in that street you stand
I can't believe it, you're holding out you're hand
You wanna lift me up (x2)

Chorus

Rem!
This song reminds me of Rem. Both in musical style and in vocals, ecpecially when the harmonyvocals kick in at the chorus. You get an amazing sound from those acoustic guitars, i didnt know that was possible! As said before, the vocals are very good and the songwriting is also excellent! good work!

Thanks for all the comments here for this song, it seems to have caught some
ears! Stratcat, getting called "real country" is extremely flattering, thank you so
much. Thanks for listening, everybody.

cool tune
I find the lyric "the wrong side of sunrise" to be quite powerful. I wish it
were repeated a few more times either in a verse or on the outro. Great
song as is . btw Lucinda Williams is one of my favorites, if that is the
Lucinda that you are refering to. Cheers.

cool tune
Thanks for sayin'! I love the music of Ms. WIlliams -- I've seen her live maybe 3
times over the course of the last few years. I appreciate your comments about
repeating the refrain/title/tagline. I tend not to repeat things like that, because
of my own way of listening (attention span)... I generally have a rule that I don't
repeat things more than twice in my songs -- which means that I have a lot of
two minute songs :) That's just me, though... I'm sure I can think of a million
tunes I like that repeat the heck out of a hook or a lyric, I just early on schooled
myself out of doing it.

Cheers!

Frogmorton said 3817 days ago (April 13th, 2007)
Sorry I never replied to this!
Glad you liked the tune!

In the interest of honesty, I have to say that the drums are apple loops and the bass is midi, but I did find them appropriate for the song. I own an electric and an acoustic guitar bass, but the midi part seemed a little cleaner and it does have some impact.

Cheers!

great
Reminds me of the Boss. Love the guitar, this would be a great song to play at a bar or club. Lyrics are strong, but sometimes they don't flow as well as they should. I know most people don't do this, but i think you should take a look at the metre of each line and smooth it out a little bit.
