Description
I was listening to a few loops and found a couple that I could fiddle with and use the pencil tool, which I did and a steady drum beat to keep us rolling along, then the synth. I was stuck for lyrics for a while as I tried to think what the music reminded me of. First one for ages that I didn't get the tune from playing the guitar first. Hope you like the fresh air , summery feel to this, M

Lyrics
Home Today

1. My minds filled up with things I wanna’ say,
‘Cause it’s been a long time since I went away,
Now I’m comin’ back home, on this summer’s day, this summer day,
The road’s so long and the field’s so green,
Prettiest sight I’ve ever seen,
It’s true what they say, “No place like home”.
Chorus
Lovely, lovely summer day and I’m coming, I’m comin’ home today.

2 Summer blue skies make a lovely scene
With butterflies flittin’ over meadows green,
Cotton wool clouds sailin’ way up high,
Over on the hill see the Kites all fly.
Colours of the rainbow dancin’ in the sky,
Like the birds, flyin’ way up high.
Chorus.

3. There in the park there’s a carousel,
Thrilling all the kids you can hear ‘em yell,
Whirling around, waving to Mom as they go.
Down by the shore people swim and play,
It’s warm enough for them to stay all day
Layin’ on the sand and soakin’ up the sun.

4. Maybe I’ll ride to the riverbank, see
If my friends are still there to welcome me,
Have a drink or two, maybe have an Ice-cream, yeah, that would be nice),
I look in the distance at the mountains blue
Smilin’ to myself at the wonderful view,
Feelin’ good, the summer’s here again.

5.The early mornin’ sun is bright and warm,
Birds have been singin’ since early dawn,
Summertime, and it’s nice to be home again.
I’m still lookin’ to the distance at the mountains blue.
Smilin’ to myself at the wonderful view
And feeling good, ‘cause the summers here again.
Yes the summer’s here..Mmmm lovely summer days with the blue blue skies… so glad, I’m home to stay.

(Spoken.)
6. It’s been a while since I’ve seen all these things I’ve just talked about,
But they never were very far from my mind.
Now I’m home, where the fields just stretch forever,
Well… at least to where the mountains reach the sky.
Someone told me that, once…they really do… reach the sky.
Ad. Lib. Outro.

Maurice Vizard

Returning the listen
As you do!

This is a beautiful song. I really like the insistence of the rhythm and the orchestration - lovely ethereal synth sounds give this a terrific atmosphere.

It will be just perfect for an iPod walk along the sea-front here at home.

Great song for the Summer. [Ha! in the UK at the moment.]

It's all in the lyrics Maurice
and this one has them in spades my friend. Like what you did on the backtracks, with the simple easy going sound letting the vocal shine through.

Nice work here Maurice,

Ed

Strange how
some lyrics just fall into place, but for some reason they didn't on this one. It's probably deciding on the subject that makes it harder. Thanks for the nice comment Ed...... simple is good in this case, regards M

Easy
Like the loping groove. Very cool changes under the chorus. Great images and a warm, easy-going vocal delivery. Love the change to minor in the chorus and the backing string/keyboard parts.
Enjoyed this breezy track.

Hi John
Really pleased that you liked this as I'm a new fan of your music. The key was a bit of a problem in this song because when the verses are OK, the chorus is either very low or very high as you can hear.... I went the low route. Thanks again for listening, much appreciated, M

Hi Karen
I was stuck for a while, but as I said above, sometimes the problem is deciding on the subject for the lyrics. I think I did get it right for this melody though. Glad you like it, Regards M

Yes Feter
I'm in the mood for summer, but where is it? LOL Could do with you sending a bit of Sun over to the UK. You know, I almost put this under Rock, but I get confused with rock and contemporary folk sometimes.... I do like both genres. Then again I do seem to run away with myself and swap and change Genres almost every song. Thanks again for listening and your nice comment, cheers M

paul f. page said 3038 days ago (July 27th, 2009)
Lyric afterthought...
Well, Maurice, the lyrics may have come near the end of your imagining about this song, but they were worth the wait. You always have these wonderfully authentic images in the stories you tell in song. This song is no exception. Seems to me that you've used the percussion loop very well, too. This song just keep chugging on and on in such a smooth fashion...I like the slides between singing melody and your spoken words/lines. You do this like a pro.
What a pleasant song.
Peace.

Hi Paul
My problem was finding a subject, but once I realized we were rollin' down the road, it just started to take off word-wise. I thought about the places where I walk sometimes and there is a hill where people go to fly kites.... and this week-end I couldn't believe that there WAS a carousel in a field (think my psychic is on the ball). Glad you liked the story telling style too, regards M

A
perfect upbeat song for summer and the lyrics are really superb.
One of your very best Maurice with really great vocals, I love the chord change at the start of the chorus and the way you sing this song.
Very much enjoyed!

Bob

Moviz said 3035 days ago (July 30th, 2009)
Glad you like
this one Bob. The chord change was quite awkward for me vocal, because I was singing either too high or too low, but it worked out OK in the end. The reason I only split the verses twice at the beginning with a chorus, was to give the impression as the song progressed, of the anticipation of going home and the urgency of it. Again Bob, I'm always pleased to see you around my songs, regards M

Maurice - I think I want to live where you live - it sounds incredibe. And another honest and heartfelt piece of work from you. I really like the spoken verse at the end, then the ad lib free form stuff - quite cool. And what great lyrics! Nice job, my friend, and thanks for sharing your vision of home with us.

Sigmund,
I don't think you would want to live where I live, though there's some lovely countryside around this old Lancashire town; you'd have to travel to Wales or the Lake District to find those Mountains I speak of in the song. Initially I was thinking about soldiers coming home from war after being away so long and there expectations and memories; then the summer crept into the lyrics and off we go. Really pleased that you liked the song. Thank you for your continued support my friend, regards M
