Description
My brother willnlf got a Zoom H2 digital recorder for his birthday. So now instead of just emailing me lyrics for our songs together - he can also lay down a version as he hears it. This is the first such version with Will playing guitar and singing to the Zoom. I liked what I heard so much that I decided to work with the demo and added a little accordion, bass and percussion. I hope you all enjoy this new take on the Budwill Industries sound.
Stay tuned later in the month for our Lost Songs entry.

Lyrics
I fell asleep in the silence
Between each quiet song
As the sun shone through the bedroom blinds
One sleepy afternoon

Stretched out on my welcome bed
After a busy day at work
The shuffle of Bob Dylan
Diz, Washington and Krall

In just those few quick seconds
Between ending note and new
I’d slip into that magic place
A dream, or none, or few

And for those precious moments
I’d leave the world behind
The warm sun like a tonic
To calm my busy mind

But then a muted trumpet
Dinah’s Since I Fell for You
Or the chords of Dylan’s bright guitar
Tangled Up in Blue

Would lift me back awake again
Like a man who has amnesia
Diana’s soft A Blossom Fell
Diz’s Night in Tunisia

Song or sleep, sleep or song
For an hour I just drifted
Along a stream of harmony
Serenaded by the gifted

Neil was there and old Steve Earle
Mingus and Chris Smither
Gillian Welch and Dave Van Ronk
Cash and Buena Vista

And which a dream and which awake
The world that I inhabit
Like Keats’ enchanted Nightingale
It’s the one that I imagine.

beautiful
I just had enough time to pop in and hear this. Realy enjoyed this alot your bro realy writes great poetry his singing has a certain story teller quality. The additions of bass and accordian put this in a nice bouncing mood. Im glad I caught this

bud said 3424 days ago (November 12th, 2007)
You're right about that Tim
Will's a great writer - and has written a lot of poetry before I pulled him into this gambit. Glad you approved of the arrangement. Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoyed
A quiet song. Kind of sways, just like a lullaby should. Vocal is real smooth. Good job on this :)

Thanks

I give Will a lot of credit
for his sustained performance. His guitar and vocal was laid down in one take to one track. He set the tone and tempo really well.

Enjoyed...
...I have always loved this particular set of chord modulations (the ones beginning each verse)...A very comfortable feeling to this song throughout. You don't muck it up with a lot of extras: just straight-forward, folksy playing and singing. I do like the occasional instrumental bridges. I wonder if a refrain or chorus would serve you well...a kind of summary of the lyrical thoughts throughout the number. It would also give you some room to breathe melodically. Just a thought. Glad I caught this number.
Peace.

Thanks, Paul
I'm mostly a lyricist, dependent on brother Bud for the musical ideas. This series of chords I've been playing on my guitar for a long time, and I finally found a lyric that worked with them. Thanks for your thoughtful comments and suggestions. Working collaboratively with Bud for the last 10 months has been absolute blast. We both love the music!

Production seems bigger and deeper. In some funny or odd way kind of reminds me of Harry Nilson - midnight cowboy track. why? I don't know. It's good that you and your brother have gone this extra step on your guys collaborations

Grateful
I'm grateful to everyone for your appreciation of Dream Song, especially regarding the lyrics and chord progression. This is my first post as a singer and songwriter (instead of just lyricist). Thanks for making it a positive experience, and thanks to Bud for his usual brilliance.

Glad
you enjoyed Dream Song. Bud turned me on to the H2 and that gave me the opportunity to do my first recording for mj, with Bud's collaboration and technical support. I'm looking forward to doing more of my own vocals and guitar work.
