Description
Kind of a dark story, this. I can imagine a CSI-style video, all gritty and camera-vite and mysterious. Definately NOT an autobiographical piece this time!

Lyrics
There’s bad news to-night
I see it in your eyes
No use to fight
I smell it in your lies
I hear it in your laughter and your cries
There’s bad news tonight.

I came home from workin’ - the night was way too long
Already in our bed you were asleep
As I laid down beside you - my head played a song
A song that struck a chord that cut me deep
You turned around to face me - the moonlight hit your face
The look I saw, it chilled me to the core
It told the whole sad story - a cold wind filled the place
A rage replaced the pain that came before

There’s bad news to-night
I see it in your eyes
No use to fight
I smell it in your lies
I hear it in your laughter and your cries
There’s bad news tonight.

I dressed and put my coat on - I went out to the park
I had to put that face out of my sight
Alone I walked forr hours - just wandered in the dark
Just wandered ‘til I saw the mornin’ light
My everything is shattered - the everything is gone
My everything won’t see the light of day
This heart is more than broken - the world has all gone wrong
‘Cause now the night has taken you away.

There’s bad news to-night
I see it in your eyes
No use to fight
I smell it in your lies
I hear it in your laughter and your cries
There’s bad news tonight.

"New sound coming from me"
That's part of my musical identity crisis, I guess. I like so many styes of music, that I'm all over the place with my songwriting, too. Just can't make up my mind, I guess. Thanks for the kudos!

Some outstanding lyrics David,
and I really like the music and vocal you did for it. I felt the music could have been a little louder, especially drums and bass, to give it a little more drive and edge. But then I have a habit of getting them too loud some times.

All in all a very good bit of work here Daid. You never disappoint my friend,

Ed

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
