Week 13

Week 13

Here’s one for my hippie friends! I recorded almost 20 different vocal tracks … the final mix includes 10 of them. I got the basic song down pretty early, but then spent most of my time trying to work out the lyrics and the final arrangement. I was not super happy with the way things were sounding, then I made a last minute decision to pull out most of the instruments during the first verse, added some acoustic guitar, and that seemed to make the difference I was looking for. We’ll see what I think in the morning!

I hope you find it entertaining, and that it makes you shake your hips a little. If not, I still hope you have a great day and I’ll love you forever.

The Glow

My love looks up as if to say 
isn't it spectacular the way 
The light just bends 
And all the receivers in the world 
Inside the tumble and the twirl 
Cannot conceive of where it ends 

And look 
See how it shatters and explodes upon the brook 
I don’t know why it leaves me shook 
I’m simultaneously enraptured and confused 
So confused 

My love looks up at me and blinks 
She don’t need to tell me what she thinks 
The creek explains what’s in her head 
So I sit in silence until night 
Refract her gaze with delight 
Wink to acknowledge what was said 

So sweet 
What starts out as panic always turns to glee 
Her incandescence lights my mind 
Her self-luminous design 
Is all I need to see 

Let’s go 
Let's focus our optics on the rainbows 
Let's shake off the shadows 
Let's exit the penumbra for the glow
