California Snow Day © 2019 Marris

We started talking ‘bout the weather
You said this was your coldest day
And here in my room we’re still together
You’re scared your road might slip away

And by the minibar’s cold light
Those little empty bottles clink into the night
You brush your teeth with a finger
Give me a hug, let it linger

Said anything else, just wouldn’t feel right
Well that was a good night

But the morning seems too bright
Look out the window, this what I see
California snow day
So beautiful that it made you cry
Put your sunglasses on
Kiss me goodbye

I woke on the couch and find you sleeping
Dry mouthed we face a brand new day
And I have a memory for the keeping
And there’s not much else we need to say...

Except...
Now your load seems lighter
You made my world brighter
Shining white in your eyes back at me
California snow day
So beautiful that it made you cry
Put your sunglasses on
Kiss me goodbye…..

Kiss me goodbye…..
Kiss me goodbye…..
Kiss me goodbye

The intimate nature of the lyric works well with the production. Great job producing a clean, bright narrative ballad. How rare these days!

Excellent production, ( but I would expect that from you!). Really like the lines that paint such a full picture in verse two. Great title for a song. Enjoyed

Thanks Mark

The 2nd verse was also my favourite "brushed your teeth with a finger" says so much.

Snow in California outside the mountains is not too frequent so that made the day even more special.

Thanks for the listen and comments.

so-cal
fits perfectly in the southern california style of the 70's & early eighties. the mix has a good contemporary sound. great stuff.

I think
the sound was driven by Richard's melody and guitar. I wasn't trying for any particular style but I'm pleased it came out like that.

Thanks Vic!

Snow Day
Ironically released in the summer... nice clear mix that allowed me to hear all the instrumentation and vocals with ease. Love the guitar hooks sprinkled around.

Mr Dilliway
is your man for the neatly woven guitar.

Summer? That's true, I hadn't thought of that!
