Description
A re-tweak, re-production and re-mix of a summery song from a couple of years ago.... light and breezy with plenty sun and fresh air; not a bit like the summer we're getting this year here in the UK, with torrential rain. I drew the little pic for the song in Sketch-Book Express, drawn entirely with my mouse (bit clumsy, but....) .... well it gives the right feel to the song... hope you like the re-constituted version, 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.
Chorus.

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.
Chorus.


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

uplifting song
we got the same weather here in the netherlands Maurice, still waiting for that summerfeel.
If the sun don´t shine we make it shine in our head ...
Fine song and digital painting!

love that eerie change in the chorus. gives the main theme a whole different texture. every once in a while you sound Southern (coming from an American Southerner). some folk try to imitate it and think they sound great (but really awful to a true Southerner), kinda like us trying to do a British accent and think we sound just like it, but not to your ears. you did it naturally. Brits have such versatile voices.

Moviz said 2079 days ago (July 19th, 2011)
Hi Sammy
well, in the first version for some reason, I didn't include that 'eerie' chorus after EVERY verse, so this time I put that right, because as you say it gives a nice change. Regarding the accent thing, I truly wasn't conscious of what accent i was using and I suppose that might be as a result of us Brits usually sing unconsciously with a slight American lilt; maybe it just got carried over from the singing part LOL. I think a lot of us Brits, (especially Northerners like myself) are pretty good at impersonating other accents, because our accent is sort of 'flat' without any strong bending of the vowels; we pronounce it like it is, cheers M

This
song casts a strong summery spell in my heart Maurice. I agree with smmydix about the chorus - it gives it more depth. Mix is bright and clear.

nice one
that guitar is recorded really nicely. i like how you sing lower when you get to the chorus. at that point it sounds like you realized fantasy your summer is actually more like the rainy one you described in your liner notes. nice track.

I understand what you mean about the lowering of the voice at chorus... no I wasn't really on a 'downer', it was just a way of making a minor change for the chorus LOL.... Thanks for calling in Michael, regards M

It's
great to hear a re-mix of this tune Maurice, one of my big favs of yours. This song has a great up beat feel to it and just what we need with all this 'summer' rain here in the UK.

Energetic groove, and the melody goes happy places in the verse, and then takes a darker turn in the chorus, which provides an interesting contrast. I'm kind of wondering how literally you intended the lyric.
Check out my latest song called Llarions Blues
Moviz said 2077 days ago (July 21st, 2011)
Dave,
at the time I wrote the lyric I was stuck for ages and then on the news they were talking about troops coming home from Afghanistan and then they all seemed to roll into place with me keeping in mind, places close to where i live where they fly kites and there was a fair on as well at the time. The Chorus minor chords were just to give that slight 'I;m thinking to myself and I'm still a bit apprehensive of what I'll find' sort of feel; but as it happened it was a nice contrast..... thanks Dave once more for taking in a song of mine... always appreciated, regards M

drawing on a great well of talent
and Maurice can draw beautifully too, sheesh! Gently floating song, love the chorus progression. Fun stuff, I definitely needed a Summer smile, thank you. San Diego, CA has been relatively cool this Summer so far, but I think that's about to change, as the heat rolls in.
