Well, I have been overwhelmed with work that past few weeks, and working about 60 hours a week. So I haven't had much time for songwriting/producing. So I just broke down and forced myself to write one tonight! It's called Stay Right Here With You. All the instruments are RealTracks/RealDrums, with just a little bit of strings and brass from my keyboard. All the vocals are me. I hope you enjoy it!

Stay Right Here With You

Here are the lyrics...

Stay Right Here With You
Copyright Stephen W. Young

Pictures in my mind
Like an old song I can hear
The words, I've forgotten
But the memories are there
When I look at you I can see so clearly
The things I need to know
And there's nothing I'd rather do
Than just stay right here with you

So I'll take my cup of life
And drink it till I'm full
And if you think I've forgotten
Or yielded to the pull
Just look at me and smile the way you do
You'll see that it's true
That there's nothing I'd rather do
Than just stay right here with you

There's nothing I'd rather do
Than just stay right here with you

And here is the Band In A Box Info...

Hi Steve,

This is a great song. The ambiance of the arrangement and mix mesmerized me. You've got my standing ovation with this one. The whole song works totally: lyrics, melody, singing, arranging, mixing. It's a formidable effort.

Regards,
Noel

Steve,

This is absolutely great! Love the lyrics, vocal and arrangement. The instrumental track is so crisp and moody - kind of reminds me of a Daniel Lanois produced song.

Of all your music, this is a personal favorite of mine.

Steve, that is very smooth, and very nice. The lyrics are very well done, and the whole track is clean. solid and on key. The background vocals are perfect, subtle, soft, and in the right spot.

Well done sir!!

Josie,

You are so kind! I really didn't do much of anything differently on this one. I am constantly looking for ways to improve the sound of my vocals, and have developed a set of very subtle effects that I use consistently on my lead vocal sound. (Won't bore you with details, but every now and then it just sort of comes together better.)

This song was pretty much a one take song on everything. I wish they all came together like that! Usually I have to do 2 or 3 takes on the lead vocals on most songs. But on this one, I literally just sang it through one take from start to finish, and it worked. Same on all the background vocals. I guess this song just "stylistically" fits my voice.

Anyway, so glad you like this one! I always appreciate hearing from you!

Steve
