All music lyrics Steve Ison

A song i demoed very roughly in a couple of hours as a potential to record on my recent trip to Switzerland.My cousins partner Tim said it was too messy for a demo-and other players wouldn't be able to understand what i was on about.Its captured the basic spirit of the song for me tho-and all the vocal ideas are roughly there.I'd like to record it more professionally with bass and hand drums and try to make it abit like those great ethereal 70s soul tracks that live in my imagination-but i doubt i'll ever get round to it...

Featured Review

A WHOLE lotta tasty stuff on this track. Almost get a Sergio Mendez Brazil '66 meets Bacharach vibe with both the vocals and guitar progressions and percussive style. All this produces a lovely sweet & tender love song vibe.
Very nice acoustic guitar solo, I like the way this solo is recorded and how the phrases parallel downward with the chord progression. Definitely the kind of thing that someone could "arrange" behind.
There were a few things here that raise this piece from very good to outstanding. The high voice at 1:02 doesn't quite hit the note that matches the major 7 chord. Right after that, there sounds like a slight untogether moment with the back-ups. A few stray pitches on the ending "bop"'s.
I like how the acoustic guitar parts interplay on each side, but the one on the right sounds kind of dull, eq wise. Might've been trying for some contrasting tones, but this part sounds like some more brightness is called.
Final impression here, is of a very well-executed demo, very well conveying a lot of inspired creativity, deserving of further refinement.

The acoustic guitar has subtle but crystal stereo tones, and then the chords take equally minor steps back and forth and take me to the top, to where those beautiful vocal harmonies are going.

I suspend my disbelief in love, love so often tainted by reality, and for a song's moment long for long stemmed roses and heartfelt words as I sympathize with the helpless desire that leaves doubt in the dust.

Lyrics

HOW COULD I FALL IN LOVE
HOW COULD I FALL IN LOVE
HOW COULD I FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU....

Our love will be for all time
There'll never be another girl
I wish that the sun would shine
Wish it was a simple world...

CHORUS

Say the same prayer inside
Put it on the face of love
A smile from your distant heart
Hold you when the seas are rough

CHORUS

A castaway the moment i met you
And all my songs were sung
I gave away myself when i tripped on your acid tongue..

CHORUS
