Walk on Water

Description
Well, Vic Holman inspired me to go back and re-work one of my oldies. I used to have BIG songs back then. Sooooo many tracks! Thought I was the next Phil Spector or something.

Anyway, went back and took out a bunch of tracks and cleaned it up a bit and put the vocals more upfront.

This was recorded in 2006- A different side of lavalamp, for those who haven't heard my earlier stuff.

Hope you enjoy.

Lyrics
Walk on Water

Why?
Why do I need the time?
Did you see the sign?

When you're stuck in a corner
and you can't stand still
You've got to work hard
to get over that hill
And then you feel a chill
That's what I am
That's what I am

I travel in a new direction
look at my reflection
five thousand times
and I say goodbye

Walk on water if I can
I get high
I get high

When you're grinding bones
and you don't make sense
You're constantly moving
and you never bend
back to the maze
of what you left
of what you left

Having trouble when I'm not connecting
A sound reflecting on
and I ask why
Then I try to hide
Walk on water if I can
I get high
I get high

Walk on Water
Some very cool dreamy Beatle-isms. Some of your best lyrics. Abstract yet accessible and open for listener interpretation. Great mix and production. Lots of great guitar sounds. Love the ending. It's very Strawberry Fields-like.

Funny...
...two of my favorite (or three) Beatle songs are Strawberry Fields, I Am The Walrus and Tomorrow Never Knows. That explains a lot.

I'm always trying for that kind of magic. At least I reminded you of that song. And I will get it right one of these days.

Thanks much,

LL

I don't want to take up too much of your time. I don't think if you posted a Stairway to Heaven type of song many would listen to all. I could be wrong.
I like the 3 min approach though.

Thanks a bunch,

I know
I kind of wish I had posted my songs in reverse order. I think I was more into writing back then. Also better on guitar and keys. But, I think my bass playing and mixing has gotten better.

Thanks man,

I used to have so many instruments and tracks. Now, I use about 8 tracks max. Gives me a cleaner sound and easier to mix.

Thanks for coming by.

Oldies
I think my oldies are better songs, but not as well produced. Maybe, I'll go back into the vault again in some time.

Thanks,

Sometimes more is more. This song drips in a lush forest of reverb and pads. Thanks for dusting this one off and sharing it with the world.

Whimsical was what I was going for. Not just a boring traditional end or a fade out.

Glad you liked it.

Nice that
you took his advice then, because this sounds really good and 'finished' if you know what i mean... just love it all from the nice easy lead in to the backing chorus's and instrumentation behind the excellent vocals. Your voice always reminds me of someone else and i think its the guy from Supertramp (Breakfast in America).... really nice work here Dave, regards M

Like seeing you around here, always good to hear from you.

like how everything comes thru really clearly in this mix, just a touch more low-end would push it over, i feel.
to me, this is one of you most creative songs. a personal favorite for the moment...

I just didn't want to redo the bass. Remember, this was done way back in 2006. God knows what kind of equipment I was using then.

Appreciate the comment about creativity. I think this one was a bit creative for me.

Thanks,

Who says you're not the next phil spector?
How straight can you shoot?

Man this is great. I like it when you use a lot of tracks! This is one of my favorite LL tunes. Great melody. Great backups too. And nice little psych freakout there in the middle - and the weird hooting end - that's genius dude! Post more like this one. Thanks for the DL.

Thanks for the cool words Craig. I'm just not that much into it lately. It's kind of frustrating when I spent so much energy into production and then the songs got overlooked. That's why I'm going to re-post about three or four more.

I think this one got about three fans when I posted it.

What's wrong with big songs?
This is a pretty cool song, and I really dig the arrangement. Great background vox. It sounds like you have two drum sets. True? Or is that a slapback echo?
