Communion Day


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Another in my infrequent attempts to write a song over a weekend,,,, and then spend weeks fiddling about with the mix.
This probably isn't final.... but are they ever?

I wanted a title with 'day' in it, and walking the dogs, came up with this one. Then googled 'communion', and then knocked the lyric out in about 30 mins. It feels kinda creepy in places, but a good lesson in 'just get it down quickly when its flowing'.

Lyrics
Yeah i know
Every girl is someones daughter.
And i know
All the sins you will discover.
You're a good girl
Living past the age of reason
I'm a bad man
Looking for a true believer, I'm

Wrestling the ghost for my soul, yeah
Put on your best dress and pray
For Communion Day.

Late at night
When the dark reveals its lessons
All I need
Is to read you my confessions.
You're a good girl
The little light that burns eternal
It's a bad world
It'll try and snuff you like a candle, I'm....

I know you're too good for me
Can't escape the blood and body
Can't escape the blood and body
I know you're too good for me...

Communion Day
Intriguing song. You had me wondering at every step of the process you describe - beginning with "I wanted a title with 'day' in it". It has turned out a little creepy, I fear... However, the performance is impressive!

Really nice Alt vibe. Dark, dangerous lyrics. Love the vocal work, as always. Stylish noir. Thanks, Steve.

Definitely creepy, but I like that in a song!
“Communion Day,” as a rite-of-passage especially for young girls, is just too-good ... too goody-goody ... to pass up the opportunity to mix it with a triple-dose of pure lascivious sin.   This is an excellent song, and a very clean mix.   (So, I guess the weeks were worth it.)

Thick plot
Ghost wrestling .. love it!

Also love that little jangly guitar hook that opens the song and keeps reappearing at appropriate moments.

Your delivery is convincing: you sound like a bad man with questionable intentions who is looking for a true believer who wants to (whether she knows it or not) undergo a conversion. What a suggestive plot!

Yeah, creepy...
I agree with Warren's analysis of the lyrics...
Musically, this is really arranged and performed beautifully. Got some edge to it, but not overly so.

Yeah, that's pretty dark...
...although it's a pretty CHIMEY dark...the guitars are awesome, and the vocal is terrific as always...Has a touch of that Suicide Blonde/"you're one of my kind" vibe...

I love the arpeggiated guitars left and right, and the solo is terrific...

"Wrestling the ghost for my soul" is a pretty evocative line...

Gorgeous!
Man I'm glad you're still around. Always loved your vocals. Still do.

Nice clean guitar work. Balanced mix. Engaging melody.

The usual recipe for greatness. This kicks the crap out of anything on the radio today. I really mean this.

Happy 2017 (and keep 'em coming!)
