Description
I had this progression, and melody recorded and sitting on my project page. Julie Day wrote these lyrics. Then Tommy Cole did the lead to my instrumental melody mix. Finally Nacho De La Rosa made some small changes to my melody and sung this. It is essentailly my melody with his adjustments. Julie says the lyrics are about homelessness, and she'll be using the song for her homeless benefit.

Julie Day - lyrics
Nacho De La Rosa - co-author melody and all vocals
Tommy Cole - lead guitar
Fred Jam - Author music/melody, Drums, bass, hammond organ, acoustic rhythm gtr. electric rhythm gtr, arrangement, mix, master

Lyrics
What's really in there?
When you dive down deep
Without attempt to cover
or block out any seep...

In the sweet and juicy center
Oh! way past the black hole
Where principle of extremes
makes a diamond out of coal

What's really in there?
Will you tell me this?
Cause I have these memories
of you.......

So you're telling me
They tried to make a fool of you
But you'd have none of it
cause you play by God's rules

Yes, you're sweet and innocent
and you sure are heaven sent
Yet they don't see you here
Cause they haven't been there yet

What's really in there?
Can you tell us this?
Cause we have these memories
of you................

Great guitar and great song.
Really, this is world-class guitar and a fine song. I find even after several listens that the vocals are incomprehensible, I had to read them to find out what the lyrics are. The voice is great, maybe work on the enunciation.

Powerful performance by all involved. Love the lead guitar lines - the sustain is great! It's a forceful vocal with plenty of raspy character, although I tend to agree with Fire Angel re enunciation (which may be my Australian ears, of course :-) I enjoyed the performance and, as is always the case when Freddy's involved, the mix is spacious yet integrated. Excellent work!

A great experience
This is not the sort of songs I am used to do. Freddy offered me to sing it and I loved it for the first time I heard it. Hard to sing it for me, but I think we finally did a good job. The music, that lead guitar, the lyrics... for me everything is amazing. Thank you guys for letting me participate in this one!.

Maybe the enunciation is simply not good... I keep working on that, but is difficult when you are not really sure about what you should change...

And thanks to all of you that are listening and giving us feedback!

Man, some sweet guitar going on here, Tommy. The lyrics are very sad and effective. I especially like the lines 'where principle of extremes makes a diamond out of coal'. The voice has a perfect quality for these lyrics. The mix music bed, mix and arrangement are perfect, as usual, Freddy! Well done to all.

Sorry I'm late to the party ... this is my kind of tune ... gritty, bluesy and a feel from the heart. Interesting and expressive vocals for this ... makes it original. Nice guitar tone and the organ sits real nice in the mix as does the acoustic ... bass and drums are in the pocket ... good work ... big thumbs up Freddy!!
Cheers
