Lyrics
"SAVANNAH"
Stacey K. Black

that night in houston
when i helped you see
the demons you run from
could help set you free
with the simple touch of my fingers on my strings
you could no longer ignore the truth

you've gotta open up your eyes
grow up big and strong
it's funny how time flies
when you're feeling wrong

that night in tucson
when i helped you laugh
i led you down your least traveled and
scariest path
with the simple touch of my fingers on your strings
you could no longer ignore the proof

oh please open up your eyes
and grow up big and strong
it's funny how time flies when everything's wrong

who are you who are you fighting with
who is it who makes you so angry
what are you fighting for
who are you?

some night in savannah
when i leave you behind
i know you think ill have
a really good time
with the simple touch of my fingers on his strings
i'll no longer ignore the truth

I've gotta open up my eyes
grow up big and strong
it's funny how time flies
when i find out... i'm wrong...

Each town has a tale
Really nice lyrics. I especially love the strong/wrong coupling. I enjoy
your posts a great deal. This story song, turning of the tables at the
end, is wonderful. I liked what you are trying to do stylistically with the
arrangement, and some of it works really well. But there is an overall
demo feel to the track that left it slightly hollow in my ears (on an
audio level), and I think it all goes back to the rhythm guitar sound you
use. My ears wanted more bite, more EQ highs, more presence, and
more grit and verve in the playing, to drive the emotion. Also, when
the flute flits around like a bird, it works really well; when it plays long
tones in the middle transition section, it seemed random and less
poignant. Your layered vocals are very nice, atlho at the important
Savannah verse, I can't tell what you are saying, and unless I had the
lyrics written in front of me, I would have missed the twist, the change
of pronoun, the important moment in the story. Such a longish story
may also deserve a stronger, longer ending. Consider a drawn out
repeated coda to drive the lasting emotion of "I'm wrong" into a more
frenzied fade, if that makes sense to you? It is what I thought would
have fit better, and given me more time, as the listener, to digest the
message switch to, surprisingly, at the end. Really nice writing.

Nice improvment
I heard your original. the changes really upped the ante. Of course i'm
sure we all keep revising our songs after there posted. It just comes with
trail & error. I've probably remixed my songs 4 or 5 times after posting.
Looking forward to more of your songs. You have a good song writting
style going. Keep on it!

Damn, Girl!...
and you play the flute, TOO?

I *know* it's just a matter of time until I'll hear your voice pop up on a
soundtrack somewhere.

You've got *real style*, kid. ;)
