Story

A playful impromptu recording of an original, 'Bright Eyed Girl', performed around friend's Paul and Karen Cavanaugh in there home studio. A microphone, my vocal and my trusty left-handed Larrivee with Paul doing his magic on the mixing board, and Karen's appreciative smile and ear. (Feb 2017)

Story

'Circles' is a song that was almost lost. Lyrics (mostly) by Pete Love. I did a musical arrangement and interpretation of some of Pete's original lyrics. I've been performing it live occasionally for a few years but a friend recorded this in a single take during a recent practice at his home studio. So, there is now a decent acoustic recording.
Recorded by Paul Cavanaugh with the additional supportive smile and cheering of Karen Cavanaugh.

Story

Playing around with Garageband. Original tune with all bits performed by me on a song that may or may not have a 'proper' recording one day.

Lyrics

Rhythm of The Road (Lynette Diaz)

Some say you're a mystery,

I see you, I see you, yeah, as poetry;

You see beauty in little things

And acknowledge, what the day, the day it brings

The day it brings.

 

You ain't lived, ain't lived no perfect life

Oh, you've been through hell, through hell

You've seen some strife

And for all, for all you've had to face

You have also seen amazing grace,

Amazing Grace.

Chorus:

There's a rhythm of the road

A song and dance when times get low

A happy face when you're feeling blue

It always seems to get, to get, to get you through;

It always seems to get, to get, to get you through;

To get you through.

--

You got a lot of future plans

Always busy, busy, always in demand;

Heart is breaking over freedom's cause

And finding harmony in divine law, in divine law.

Bridge:

The music constant in your ear

It heals and soothes and casts out fear

And freedom for is freedom true

The dream the dream that lives inside of you;

The dream the dream the dream that lives inside of you.

Chorus

Story

These are the first song lyrics that I'd ever written. I hadn't learned an instrument at the time. I titled it 'Everyday Song' and put down the verses but never a chorus. When I began playing guitar about 10 years later, I found the lyrics in an old notebook and the chorus was born quite quickly. 'Everyday Song' became a real song.

Lyrics

Everybody Needs An Everyday Song To Get You Through The Everyday Throng Of Birth And Death And In Between For Most Of Us The Average Scene Well, Everyone, Yeah Everyone Goes Away Everyone, Yeah Everyone Goes Away Everyday, I build a Karmic Bridge With Links To People All Around Good Or Evil I Forge A Trail That I Have To Walk Along It's Not Unusual At The End Of The Day To Feel Spent And Needy In Some Way Feeling Passed Along On The Conveyor Belt Of Human Trouble And Pained Self-Doubt Well, Everyone Yeah Everyone Goes Away Everyone, Yeah Everyone Goes Away Everyone Goes Away Someday Can't Blame Others When You've Lost The Glow The Way To Play Or Treat Your Soul Toil And Tumble And Fall In Line Losing Track Of What's Divine Well, Everyone Yeah Everyone Goes Away, Yeah Everyone, Yeah Everyone Goes Away Yeah, Everyone Goes Away Someday Everyone Goes Away Someday Everyone, Everyone, Someday
