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.

Wow! Not only are you talented but what a production. From the first drum beat to the last note I couldn't move. Perfect blend all around and just absolutely stellar.

Excellent!!!!

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!!
