Description
This is a song co-written with my friend Woody...He's doing the vocals.

It's about my kids who were ages 5 and 8 at the time.I dusted it off and replayed the guitar parts last night.I'm thinking live drums and harmony vocals might complete it.,,,This is a work in progress.

Lyrics
Sleeping On The Floor
Written by J Gretch and Woody T

Screaming in silence good at being bad
Looking up just to see the bottom

I'll try to remember never to forget
It's the small things that seem so big

Devil's eye's with an angel of a smile
Moving just to stay in place

Empty thoughts and yes I'm saying no
It's a complex world of simple things

This marks the end of forever
I'm told I'm winning by loosing you
It means more now than it ever did before
Those simple days of sleeping on the floor

Trying to feel good about the pain
Changing just to stay the same

Wide awake and dreaming like a child
Emotions running down my face

This marks the end of forever
I'm told I'm winning by loosing you
It means more now than it ever did before
Those simple days of sleeping on the floor
It means more now than it ever did before
Those simple days of sleeping on the floor

Very cool. I love the progression, and the vocals/lyrics are very heart felt. I agree that live drums, harmonies, and even a little guitar solo would be awesome. I also hear some strings arrangements in there as well. Very cool imagery all around. Thanks for posting.

This song has the potential to be a great collaboration. You should track down some MJ people. I look forward to hearing it grow.

Very good song...
Very good song augmented by some nice acoustic guitar work. I like your vocals a lot and feel that they probably don't need the effect that you put on them to stand out. I can hear a soaring guitar solo adding nicely to this. Regards, Peter.

This really brought a smile to my face, I have a 14 month old and seeing him grow is a beautiful thing but a heartbreaking one as well. This has real potential. You might check out 'drums on demand' its how I do all my drums.
