Damien ask me to write the lyrics to this song. We’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks. Came out serious hard core blues. Hope you like it. CMA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlYVpOONe3c&feature=youtu.be

Love Can Sting
Music: Damien, lyrics: Charles M Anderson © 2020

Intro: [BACK VOCAL] Eu eu... eu eu
Eu eu... eu eu
---
A1:
[LEAD VOCAL] Love can sting...
[BACK VOCAL] the pain it brings...
[LEAD VOCAL] You told me... I’ll always be the one
[LEAD VOCAL]  Night we met... 
[BACK VOCAL] that blues quartet...
[LEAD VOCAL]  Played our songs (whispers) all night long... 
---
A2:
[LEAD VOCAL]  Love can sting...
[BACK VOCAL] was I your fling...
[LEAD VOCAL] You left me... in misery... 
[LEAD VOCAL] Note you left...
[BACK VOCAL] where you confessed...
[LEAD VOCAL] You belonged... (spoken) it all was wrong...
---
(Guitar solo) (Low whisper) I’m to blame... I didn’t... see your ring... oh, love 
---
Bridge part 1:
[BACK VOCAL] What were we thinking
[BACK VOCAL] We were caught in a trance, (whisper) oh love
[BACK VOCAL] Songs she was singing 
[BACK VOCAL] Had us lost in romance

Bridge part 2:
[BACK VOCAL] Snuggling and dancing, (whisper) wow love
(Short guitar riffs)
[BACK VOCAL] We created a scene 
(Short guitar riffs)
---
(Whisper) How love can sting 
(First guitar solo)
---
(Second guitar solo)
---
A3:
[LEAD VOCAL]  Love can sting...
[BACK VOCAL] heartaches it brings... 
[LEAD VOCAL]  Though you’re gone...
[BACK VOCAL] you’re in this song...
[LEAD VOCAL] Tell me true...
[BACK VOCAL] is our love through...
[LEAD VOCAL] Now that I’m lost...
[ALL VOCALS] Still have love’s sting

That's very cool! Smoky, bluesy, a little jazzy.

The shorter lyrical phrases leave plenty of room for the riffs and breaks that bring this together.

The whispers, spoken parts and back vocals definitely give it a style that works well.

Good track! :)

Thanks, RD Man,
Damien really put his heart and soul into it. And a ton of work producing the video. What a musician!

A great arrangement. Some fabulous guitar playing here. I really like the production too. It isn't typical of what I usually listen to, but I really enjoyed this. Better get working on my guitar playing!!:)

Yea, Chris, Damien did a superb job on this production. But his guitar skills are really something! Both base and lead. He can shame a lot of guitarists. Thank for listening.

Charles
