Drylands Road



 Genre: Acoustic

Get Flash to see this player.

Drylands Road is the address of my analyst. for those of you who are, or who have been in analysis, the line "in august you just disappear" may resonate. i mean seriously....where do they go in August? Mine won't tell me. i've thought about stalking him....but that isn't altogether healthy....is it.

I’m down on a sofa, I’m down in my world,
Don’t know just how far I can fall
You’re over my shoulder – you’re grey and you’re older
Don’t know if you get me at all
You want to explore things that happened before
And I’m trying to get what you say
Alluding to trust, your words turn into dust
In that moment I’ve drifted away

God knows where we’re going to
God knows what’s in store for you

Know nothing about you, the life that surrounds you
In august you just disappear
You talk of transference a natural occurrence
All I know is I want you here.
We talk about feelings that I’m not revealing
That hinder and clog up my day
The notion is fleeting and time keeps on beating
You smile then you send me away

God knows where we’re going to
God knows what’s in store for you

I just want to belong forever and all along
And there’s no end to the session
I want to be over there, wanna be self-aware ,
And join in the procession
Are you my Freudian obsession?
can’t put up with this pain, won’t you tell me I’m sane
then it’s the end of the session
it don’t make any sense when you sit on the fence
Are you my Freudian obsession?

Well done, all around
Excellent guitar work, and beautifully written lyrics, the rhythm and flow and meanings just click right into place. Your singing voice is nice and exudes the right kind of smooth-but-clingy emotion for this track.
Good stuff! Oh, and I look forward to meeting up with Macaudion next weekend, small world! :-)

Really jazzy verse contrasted by a catchy melody in the chorus. The guitar sounds great. I saw in your first post you weren't excited by the guitar you were using, but I think it sounds fantastic. What do you use to record it?

Hey Julian!
Welcome to mj. To me, the self is a bottomless pit. But this song is not. Honest and open songwriting presented in a naked and straightforward style that suits the material. Very well done.

Very analytical
I met one of mine at a party once... I'm not sure who was more awkward.

This is great. A really nice laid back feel and the "chorus" vocals work really well.

Good tone on the guitar and clean playing.

just thought I'd check out your other stuff.
Nice one.
Really well played, thoughtful and (occasionally) witty lyrics.
I like the way it all comes together.
I think the analyists all go and see another analyst in August and get a chance to talk about their problems.
They don't want to talk to you about 'their' problems or they'd have to pay YOU ;-)
Good song

My therapist decided to break tradition and usually disappears in October, but I understand the sentiments here exactly. Love the high register you're singing in, especially those harmonies. How do you do the percussion for your songs? I really like it - always understated and not intrusive to the vocals and guitars, which are, rightly so, the focus of your songs. While I love the songs where you've played with effects and electronics, I'm such a sucker for a sweet-voiced tenor and his guitar. Another great one.

So wierd
I picked this song to listen to today after our conversations! I'm going through your posts, oldest to the one that got me listening, love the harmonies on this and the writing, great feel on the guitar!

Very Crafty
Oh yes. The swing guitar line, over dubbed acoustic breaks, harmonised vocals. Some things are definately Jammy. Well, Mac Jams (for sure), then there's also jam (of course), Wahl Clippers (feel the burn!) and also Dodgers (one's never enough). And then there's Hackney Bloke. Crafty and... Jammy! Enough said!

just thought
I should comment to say that this is by far my favourite song here on macjams... I can't quite place what it is that makes this work so well, it just fits together so brilliantly as a cohesive whole. Especially how it develops after the second chorus. Really absorbing work here.

Going back
To your earlier songs, should have done this before a great "best foot forward". I wonder how many MJ performers have at some time been to a councellor/therapist? I can certainly relate to these lyrics! Must be something about the fragile nature of "artists". I wrote a song called "Fragile Men" once and if i get a decent chorus I'll have to post it sometime. Good stuff Julian. Cheers Mark

tunes Brother J. Hey you know how to write a tune and how to arrange one too. The intro has similar notes to that Mash theme tune. I need to join your fan club. Beautiful vocal delivery with superb lyrics.

Great intro
so clean and precise then the vocals come in just perfectly. I like everything about this. Harmonies are also attractive. Must try an analyst, now that would be interesting.

F*ck f*ck f*ck
I spent an enjoyable hour listening to a sample of your songs and commented on them as I went. Now I discover that none of them posted properly. oh well, I'll have to do it all over again.
But while I'm here it was interesting to see the change in style as i went up and down the list. Your voice, for example is very different in this first offering.

Very enjoyable song. I spent half an hour in therapy when 19 or 20. It was all I needed to discover what a rip off the whole thing was and maybe still is.

You can show my guests in now...

song explains the day I am having today. In my version I am talking about myself. I appreciate the melody that weaves around the simple chords. You are a good player and have good thoughtful lyrics. Thank you Julian.
