Hey bro,

I'm still hacking at this one.  I took your ideas for the 1st verse and changed them up a bit.  What do you think?  I'm open and willing to change anything.

I really dig the 2nd lines of the 2nd verse you came up with the most.  Her having a light and then we're dancing in it.  I think that's really cool.  I'm just trying to figure out the best way to say it.  On the May 6th suggestions, I just thought the first 2 lines were a little too redundant with 'road' and 'eyes'.

What do you think of using the 2 lines below for the beginning of a 2nd verse?

New horizons now are coming into view 11
and girl it's all because of you    8

I think you meant for them to be a bridge, but I really like the idea.  Hopefully, I'll get more time to look at it tomorrow night.

I think this is really coming together!

-J

you've paved the same old roads into something new
never dreamed that i'd find a love so true
girl, you know how to ease this troubled mind
i found my peace deep in your eyes

it's a new day, and i got you on my mind, now baby
i can't wait for tomorrow
it's a new day, you know i never thought i'd say,
i can't wait for tomorrow

 

i can feel my empty world fill with your light
now we can both dance in it tonight

Jason,

I'm really liking where the first verse ended up, I just think the word that could be removed. I'm open to changing everything if you don't like it.  For the second verse, what do you think of...............

you've paved the same old roads into something new
never dreamed i'd find a love so true            <<<<<<<<< removed "that"
girl, you know how to ease this troubled mind 
i found my peace deep in your eyes

it's a new day, and i got you on my mind, now baby
i can't wait for tomorrow
it's a new day, you know i never thought i'd say,
i can't wait for tomorrow

All new horizons are coming into view 11
and girl it's all because of you    8
my empty world is filling with light 9
we both can dance in it tonight
8

it's a new day, and i got you on my mind, now baby
i can't wait for tomorrow
it's a new day, you know i never thought i'd say,
i can't wait for tomorrow


Do you think it needs a 3rd verse? Or do you just repeat the chorus maybe with harmonies a few times ? Let me know, I'm really excited to be helping you on this, I think it's going to be something special.

This just came to me............

It's a new day since I've got you in my nights now baby

What do you think of that? I kind of like the contrast from day to night, maybe not in every chorus, but maybe in the last chorus.

Nice...I like that for a last chorus!

I totally agrees with removing 'that' from the 1st verse.  I don't know what I was thinking.

I'm still not sold on the horizon line and using 'you' as a rhyme.  I still dig the 2nd 2 lines.

I think we need to come up with a bridge (music and lyricwise) instead of a 3rd verse.  What do you think?  I'll try to work out some chords changes tonight.

We'll get this sucker done yet!

Glad to have you on board with this as well!  I've had the music and basic concept sitting for a while now.  It feels good to dust it off and get some movement on it.

Heres another thought for verse #2


The grass seems greener the sky a deeper blue 11
a brighter life is coming into view   10
that darkened world is filling with light 9
we both can/will? dance in it tonight 8


Let me know if you like this better. I do.:D

I'm really liking this song, I must have listened to the work tape om your soundclick site 50 times.

As for the bridge, I think I will wait until we have a 2nd verse set to see where it goes before trying to think of a bridge idea. The musicial change for the bridge will have a lot to do with it too. Another 2nd verse idea.........


The sun burns/seems? brighter the sky a deeper blue 11
whole new world's are coming into view  9
my darkened world now is filled with light  9
we both will dance in it tonight  8


Another random thought, not sure where or if it could fit anywhere.......

The love we're making, baby, like you is so fine 12
I want to feel this till the end of time 11

Red,

I was reading your input for Jason....Talk about take it and run with it.  That's wierd because I looked at the first post and would have had no clue where to go with that.   GOOD JOB!

Jason,

This "Red" light means go; You guys have got it going on with this one.  Great mix with red.

I'll keep watching to see how it turns out.  Very few guys ever respond to anything I say...That's okay.  I'll just talking like I've known you all forever.  Happy Camper!

Joyce

Thanks Iris!  Red and I are hashing it out.  I'm the one that needs a kick in the butt.  Hopefully I'll be able to record Red's 2nd verse this week.

Hey Barry,

Here's what we have so far:

you've paved the same old roads into something new
never dreamed i'd find a love so true
girl, you know how to ease this troubled mind
i found my peace deep in your eyes

it's a new day, and i got you on my mind, now baby
i can't wait to see tomorrow
it's a new day, you know i never thought i'd say,
i can't wait to see tomorrow

the grass is greener and the sky a deeper blue
a brighter life is coming into view
my darkened world is filling with light
we can both dance in it tonight

'cause it's a new day, and i got you on my mind, now baby
i can't wait to see tomorrow
it's a new day, you know i never thought i'd say,
i can't wait to see tomorrow

the love you make me baby, feels so fine
i want to keep 'till the end of time

'cause it's a new day, and i got you on my mind, now baby
i can't wait to see tomorrow
it's a new day, you know i never thought i'd say,
i can't wait to see tomorrow

I'm pretty psyched because I think I have a decent musical bridge down.  I tweaked the bridge words a bit.  I'm not quite sold on it, and we can go back to your original or tweak them some more.  Just something I was vamping on tonight.  I dig the 2nd verse, but I'm wondering if you can come up with something different, but in the same vein for 'a brighter life' and 'my darkened world'.  I see how they work together, but it's just not grabbing me.  I tried to hack at it tonight, but I couldn't come up with anything.  Maybe after another pass or 2 we can post it in the other forum.  It has been a blast working on this with you.  Sorry, it's taking me a couple of days to reply.  my 9 to 5 is killing me, but working on this together is forcing me to keep up the music.  Let me know what you think of my suggestions.  I'm totally open, so if you think those lines should stay, I'll work it.

Hey Jason,

I like what you've got going on there, let me see if I can come up with something different for the second verse, as always these are just ideas I'm throwing out there for you to either keep or throw away.

2nd verse ideas.......


The grass is greener the sky a deeper blue  11
everythings clearer multiplied by two            10
my empty room/world is filling with light        10
and we both can dance in it tonight               9

The grass seems greener my skies a deeper blue 11
bright new perspectives are coming into view        11
I can feel your love burning deep inside                 10
want to feel this way till the end of time                 10

The grass seems greener my skies a deeper blue  11
all new horizons are coming into view                     11
you brightened up my days and my lonely nights    10
with you girl the futures looking bright                     9


If you none of these do it for you, Ill try to look at it from a different angle, and see what I can come up with. As for the bridge, I would like to hear the music to know how the sylable count would work on it, but below is just an idea........

The love we're making baby, makes me feel alive
I want to feel this way till the end of time

or
I want to keep this feeling till till the end of time

I'm really into this tune Jason, I'm loving the way it's coming together. I never knew I would like writing happy stuff before.

I really dig the 'light' and dancing in it tonight line.  I'd love to keep that if we can.

What about:

The grass is greener the sky a deeper blue 
everythings clearer multiplied by two           
you filled my empty world with a shining light       
and we both can dance in it tonight

I like 'everythings clearer' but not really fond of 'multiplied by two.  I hope it's okay to be straight up. 

I really dig this:

The love we're making baby, makes me feel alive
I want to keep this feeling till till the end of time

But, there's a few too many syllables.  'Alive' is much better than the 'fine'.  I'll record the bridge tomorrow night and post it so you can hear the music.  I was trying to think of a way to re-word it so 'feel' wasn't in both lines and there was only one 'make'.  I'm drawing a blank though.

Maybe:

The love you give me, makes me come alive (Ugh, 'come alive' sounds like Frankenstein.  I know you can think of something!)
I want to keep this feeling, till the end of time

Maybe:

The love you give me, makes me so alive
I want to keep this feeling, till the end of time

I don't know man.  HELP!  LOL!

Hey Jason

Let me throw this out there as an alternate 2nd verse, leet me know what you think........

The grass is greener the sky a deeper blue
everythings clearer all because of you
my empty world is filling with your light
we both can dance in it tonight

Let me wait to hear the music for the bridge before I try to write anything for it, that way I'll have a better idea of what will fit.
