Song Description

"Sorry, did I say something wrong?" said Marvin, dragging himself on regardless. "Pardon me for breathing, which I never do anyway so I don't know why I bother to say it, oh God I'm so depressed. Here's another one of those self-satisfied doors. Life! Don't talk to me about life."

Lyrics
We Hardly Live Our Lives

evening fades away
and in to the dream
the moments of this day
merging with the stream

ch:
we hardly hold this moment
we mostly just survive
we barely see the wonder
we hardly live our lives

morning lights my eyes
another chance to see
will i take another step
towards the endless sea

i hold your trembling hand
you glance, then look away
we're given many choices
but we must choose our way

(c)2010 Bill Grundmann

lives
very good feel to this tune. both happy and sad, both optimistic and sort of down. nicely arranged. pleasing chord progressions. very nice mix of sound/instruments that make an affective end result. enjoyed it. cheers

I love the odd feel the drums give this. Great dreamy atmosphere. Very sweet chorus.

except for the drums, it's all original material

drums were made from "Trip Hop Tribal Beat" - but it's adjusted to fit the triplets rhythm, and i messed around with it a bit... there are some odd sounds in the loop that i just toned down, but left in there. it sort of sounds like someone's tossing the next apartment - just the right thing for this song

thanks

You have been on fiyaaaaa
Lots of posts of late but I have been tryin keepin up. Cool composition here. Not entirely sure that the heavily reverb and delayed guitar fits with the pretty dry sounding vocal. That is a nit but I have been trying to be constructive in my posts. Enjoyed it.

Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy!!!! : )
I'm back : ) this freakin' Haus Frau thing has it's moments, but life is way too short to live without MJ's and you Big Brother Bill. : ) Obviously, I've watched HHGG more than a few times : ) ~ still my favorite movie, and philosophy of life ~ "just hang the sense of it all, and keep yourself busy." : ) Are those Lilacs? I love Lilacs, one of the most intoxicating flowers on the planet. I cannot resist the pull of their fragrance in bloom. : ) Marvin is my favorite 'seriously depressed' A.I. ~ GPP ~ genuine people personality ~ "I'm a prototype. You can tell, can't you. :~ ( " ~ The answer to life, the universe and everything is 42. :~P ~ My point exactly ~ freakin' logical super computers!, a great handle on Fractal Geometry [[ math- yuck!!!, but the art created is a mindblowing contemplative experience!!! I don't have to understand the exact workings of the 'Aurora Borealis' to be awestruck by it's phenomenal beauty!!! : ) ]] , but A.I. is seriously flawed (because we are humanbeings - garbage in ~ garbage out - computers are only capable of computing the facts fed to them ( ones and zeros) ~ how could they possibly fathom the endless questions of the human heart?, or the human soul's yearning for an answer to, "What's the big picture here, and how do I fit into it? There had better be a good darned reason for the 'shit' I've been through!" Ha! Ha! : ) If anyone could figure it out, it's YOU, dear brother ~ no pressure : ) ~ you've retired long enough ~ time to put on your 'Superman' git up, and save the known universe from itself!!! : ) I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! : ) I call it! It's mine!!! : ) Luv U, C.J.
