Lyrics

Hey Cool Water by Paul Silva

I have traded all my gold
for a name of small reknown
I have sold my very soul
for a paper party crown
I have claimed to walk on water
while the tangles dragged me down
but I have kissed the face of God
though I was lacking

are those rivers good?
are they from my heart?
will they flow like this forever,
or in fits and starts?
if you want then I will test you-
where do they go?
I thought I had a premonition
but I don't know.

Hey, cool water
I have stumbled here upon you once again
I've been wasting all my days on the devil's daughter
I guess I'm just another ordinary man.

are those rivers good?
are they from my heart?
will they flow like this forever,
or in fits and starts?
if I had forsight
I would tell you all that I saw
once I had a premonition
now it's gone
so gone

hey cool water
I have stumbled here upon you once again
I just wasted all my dreams on the devil's daughter
I guess I'm just another ordinary man

Well Done
I enjoyed this song a lot, and the performances were spot on. Regarding the wooden fish coming through my right monitor, I would either bring it up and eq it a bit, or lose it. It was kind of distracting as is. Other than that, a great job. Thanks for posting.

thank you!
it took me a minute to figure out what fish you were talking about! but yeah, it is a little tentative. The final version will have an experienced percussionist so I won't be so hesitant to put it up in the mix.

Stand Out
The totally effortless, together rhythm makes this song stand out from the start and the vocals do not disappoint.

Really professional, this, to my ear.

Nothing negative to say about this post at all. Simply very good throughout.

Enjoyed this one immensely.

Thank you.

Hey, Cool Water
Beautiful guitar and love the percussion awesome tune made my head rock well done

The drums on this are loops. On the finished version it'll have a real percussionist.

Very good song
Hi Paul, Very good song. Love the acoustic vibe (reminded me of early acoustic Poco). Top notch vocals and classic chorus harmonies. Would have been an automatic D/L. I agree with the Corporal re the right percussion, probably more of a distraction than a plus at present. Congratulations. Regards, Peter.

Great recording
dynamic on the guitar are well executed. Nice progression and lead chops delivered with a great balance and tonal quality. It would be nice to have words for those as myself with old over used ears.

It would have nice share this with a downloadability, cause this will be the only time any of us will ever hear it again. Not a very good promotional move. Good luck though and I hope you find how to sell a ton of songs.

I've posted the lyrics now. Boy, selling a ton of songs would be a dream come true wouldn't it. But as you've probably noticed around here, there's a ton of very good song writers. I don't know that I'm on that level.

Great Acoustic Sound
Really a very nice intimate *live* sound.

Sounds to me a bit like a collaboration of Bob Dylan and the group, America.

Nicely done, Paul. ;)

Dan Peek, eat yer heart out...
Well wrought lyrics, Paul, and great singing.... Singing that doesn't sound over processed or programmed, but sung by a real guy with actual vocal cords...

I really enjoy your guitar playing, too, both the good, solid, ka-chunka rhythm and the tasteful lead playing....

Your lyrics here are soaked with spiritual realities - lead and back up vocal work are solid and satisfying - subtle approach keeps it all steady and on course - thou reminiscent of many a Cali soft rock acts from years past(that's a good thing)it remains true - thanks for sharing Paul

This place is just so much more expansive than I had ever imagined!!!
Lovely!!! Love it all, the music, composition and especially the lyrics ~ and your description just blew mw away! Awakenings always take their own sweet time.... Namaste...... Yin/Yang.... Harmony is a hard won and sacred gift..... devil's daughter?!.... hmmmm... lal (laughing A little)...." tread lightly on these hearts of women, love." Ha! tongue in cheek reference to an old 'Kentucky Headhunters' song ~ "Walk Softly on this heart of mine, Luv!" (I'm smilin'~ cantcha tell?) . Maybe the concept of "E- Harmony.com" is not so "Out O' Whack" ~ compatibility first ~ hormones later..... Sorry, Sir. In a bit of a silly and yet melancholy mood this star crossed near midnight moment in time...... Ordinary men are good people. : ) for the most part.... : ) As long as they don't burp in public, or 'break wind' in intimate moments between the sheets, (now I'm laughing! Sorry Dear! ~ Just in one of those oppositional humorous moods tonight. But this comment will be so far down the list that I doubt you will even know I left this late to the party comment. chuckle!
