It's Lonely Here


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is a tune Jack had on the shelf. Hope you enjoy it.

Terry: Jack sent this to me quite a while back. He ask for some lyrics and ideas. The lyrics are nonsensical, just a vehicle for harmonies. Maybe it works with what I did here. Maybe not.

Jack: Terry is always a surprise with what he can do with very little. I have never been disappointed and am not now. The track is a mixed bag of media.

Instrumentation:
Jack: Bass, Drums and Organ
Guitars and Steel Pedal Guitar: GB Loops

Lyrics
It's Lonely Here
[Lyrics: Terry Pearson]

Nothing ever comes from nothing
Something always comes with something
Nothing ever shed a light on anything that I can rely
Rely rely rely on

Walking never got me nowhere
Standing never made me stay there
Sitting down is so exhausting. There's got to be a way to delay
Delay delay delay time

Feeling what I think I'm feeling
Thinking while my head is reeling
Running from the things I'm thinking, and I thought them on my own: all alone
It's lonely lonely lonely here

Say what you will, but we're climbing up a hill
And a hill has a top, so we're gonna have to stop
You can choose any side to descend and abide
But what ever happens: it's your own fault !
And it's lonely lonely lonely here

It's lonely lonely lonely here

Lonely Here
sigh .... i got the benefit of an early listen to this wonderful song, and i completely admit that i've been wearing it out ever since. these a cappella harmonies in the beginning are just AWESOME! and then the way this song builds up this KILLER lament is just about breathtaking. GREAT WORK you guys!

Lonely
Terry and Jack, this has a nice, steady feel. Reminds me of Dr Hook. Great song-writing. Coming from an Oregon band who likes "Lonely" songs, we say, Bravo!!!

Nonsense? Nonsense!
Some of the best lyrics have been nonsensical, as a trip to the Dylan or Beatles archives will prove. So it's nonsense to call them nonsense. Overall, thanks for a very enjoyable harmony workout.

Well grounded indeed
Great collab guys, and as to Terry's comment about nonsensical lyrics, I disagree, makes perfect sense to me. The other part of Terry's comment about being a vehicle for harmonies is dead on. There's some great harmonies going on in this. Cool song, great production and mixing, who could ask for anything more.

Great work you two, I personally love what you've got going on here.

what a sweet mix
3 manly voices singing close like that
and strummin/poundin that guitar like that
and climbin that song's hill like that
now THAT's what i'm tawkin about!

bridge was so cool
IT'S YER OWN FAULT - would make Buddha smile
made me smile, too.

the repeating delay/lonely oh yeahs
delighted every part of me - that was brilliant.

you kept it simple, and let it build naturally.
loved the sweet, sweet slide gtr near end.

this certainly colors my world - love it!
