Description
My wife comes from a family and history of wealth. Somehow, she wound up falling in love with a simple artist and has committed herself to that love through thick and thin for the past 17 years.
This is for Lisa.

Lyrics
Her world used to be
As light as air
Planet’s gone to hell
She could not care
Any less –
It’s not her mess

Then she fell to me
With no reason how
Or why this came to be
Her lot right now
Yeah, her lot right now

Pre-Chorus
Love has played its hand
And raised its lone demand
She can’t refuse
That life she’s gonna lose
So hang on girl . . .

Chorus
I’d give all my life for
That one smile that’s
Inside you
There’s a love to die for
On the other side
Of blue
Side of blue

Sometimes life is rough
Nothing good is free
But love can be enough
Don’t give up on me
Don’t give up on me

Love has played its hand
And raised its lone demand
She can’t refuse
This life she’s gonna choose
So hang on girl . . .

Chorus
I’d give all my life for
That one smile that’s
Inside you
There’s a love to die for
On the other side
Of blue

Bridge
Tread upon uneven ground
From the looking glass
You’ve just passed through
The path is fragrant
Yet unsound
You’re not alone
And not time bound

It’s just the other
Just the other
Just the other
side of blue

So hang on girl . . .

Chorus
I’d give all my life for
That one smile that’s
Inside you
There’s a love to die for
On the other side
Of blue
Side of blue

Slowly picks up steam
I like how this starts off gently and keeps kicking it up a notch at each chorus (or so it seemed to me.) Sort of a rolling lyric song, with a sweet message, nice! Hi Lisa, he's a keeper! :-)
ttfn,

Nicely composed and produced. I am sure you have heard the Neil Diamond references to your vocal style so I will leave that to others. I do think that you have a great melodic touch to your writing and your vocals stand on their own. I love the modulation and harmony to step up the dynamic. Nicely done!

Thanks!
I was a little nervous starting it off so slowly that people would lose interest, but mostly because I'm always so afraid to have to carry a part vocally, naked and exposed. Thanks for sticking with it :-)

Oh MY!!! This is absolutely terrific. I love the music, the lyrics, the story behind it, and your courage to carry the vocal, "naked and exposed" as you commented to someone. That's exactly how i feel if/when i sing, so i know where you are coming from. And you came with STYLE and GRACE!

the girls (Racquel and Michelle)
both sing in bands locally and happen to like my artwork, so it's especially nice that they like to pitch in musically as well - they bring so much! The apogee One is a wonderful yet inexpensive mic and audio interface for the Mac and works perfect for both Garageband and Logic recording - here's a link, http://www.apogeedigital.com/products/one.php
