Hi all,

Some of you have seen this in the lyrics section. I have no real way to do any mixes now as windows screws up the mic settings when I try to add vocals to BIABox. So this is to the BIAB tracks. It's only from my laptop mic. It's not real pretty, but this is how I feel this song should go. I don't have any way to change anything on the mix right now, sorry, it will have to wait till I get off of Saipan.

Lovey

She wasn’t very special
Especially to her dad
Who left her belt unbuckled
And it turned out so bad
Under the influence
Of smoke and alcohol
She went through the window
When he hit the pole

Lovey wasn’t loved-------------} Chorus
At least not to me
Ignored by the world
And her family
Seven when I met her
Four years in the chair
On a ventilator
It wasn’t very fair

She was very angry
And hated everyone
It took a while to reach her
But I soon got it done
I was her nurse two years
Doing all her care
She hid the brightest smile
I’d seen anywhere

Lovey wasn’t loved-------------} Chorus
At least not to me
Ignored by the world
And her family
Seven when I met her
Four years in the chair
On a ventilator
It wasn’t very fair

Her parents put her in a home
When she was only nine
Tired of being stuck with her
Jealous of their time

Instrumental Break

Lovey wasn’t loved-------------} Chorus
At least not to me
Ignored by the world
And her family
Seven when I met her
Four years in the chair
On a ventilator
It wasn’t very fair

Lovey wasn’t loved
But she was by me

Given the problems you have encountered... I can hear a much better version (when you have time) because this one may get the point across... but it deserves more on the production and recording side. Thanks for sharing.

Dang John,

Deej just really lifted my spirits beforehand--these lyrics bring you back down for sure. I don't mean that's a bad thing, obviously you are writing about a tragic circumstance that you feel needs heard--I applaud that, as awareness of horrid circumstances can make a difference for sure. Will look forward to your production, thanks for sharing.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for the listen, and the comments. Yes, it needs a lot better production and recording, but you can only gets what I has at the moment. The tracks sound a lot better than they do in the recording, it's a BB King style blues, and this one is definitely blues; but it needs a true blues guitar lead through the whole thing and especially for the break. I just have no way to put the tracks and the vocal together except the way I have.

Hi Eddie, thanks for the listen, I know it's sad, and the production isn't good, but I wanted to share it. It probably will never get past this stage, until I get to the Philippines, and hopefully learn enough to do it better, but I had to write it, finally.

Hi John..............the lyrics are really good...........but this production doesn't help with the emotional lift a good melody adds.
This feels like a good start to begin with a first draft.
Good luck with this............
