I've Got You

Here is one we wrote a while ago.
An upbeat set of lyrics lead that are possibly a little more topical now than when written.
Vocal & Lyric – Leon
I played some guitar and sang a little.

The Band

RealTracks in style: ~1437:Piano, Electric, Rhythm JazzFunkGroovin Ev16 110

RealTracks in song: 2635:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm CountryBluesRockHigh Ev 110
RealDrums in Song: RockEven8: a: Snare, HiHat b: Snare busy, HiHat

I’ve got you


I’ve got no secrets that anybody wants to learn
I’ve got no manuscripts that anybody wants to burn
They don’t want to lock me up and throw away the key
And even if they did no one would try to set me free
Spies don’t want to kill me for the secrets that I stole
No agent’s going to call to say I’ve got the starring role

But I’ve got you
I’ve got you
All my dreams have come true
Cause I’ve got you

You’ll never see my face upon the evening news
I’ve got no followers hanging on my views
Don’t have an ideology I’m desperate to share
I’m not a super villain with an underwater lair
No records are going to tumble, no fortunes will be made
Nobody’s going to be surprised by how much I was paid

But I’ve got you
I’ve got you
All my dreams have come true
Cause I’ve got you

I’ve got no speeches planned that anybody wants to hear
No grand designs that anybody needs to fear
None of my supporters will be knocking on your door
Got no revelations that will shock you to the core
I was not the hero playing in the final game
The world can go to sleep tonight without knowing my name

But I’ve got you
I’ve got you
All of my dreams have come true
Cause I’ve got you

Leon, those are some interesting lyrics. Well sung. Peter, good guitar work and arrangement. Maybe a tad too loud. I don't know what this came in at but most masters are at -8 to -10 RMS. Then again it's early. Good one. Tom

Peter/Leon,

A clever write. Well sung...

Good arrangement. The horns work really well. The vocal seems a bit too "up-front" and the guitar (fills and solo - which are nice!) are a bit too low.

Cool song.

Hello, Peter

The melodies of the guitar at Intro., Interlude and ending are very catchy.
And the chord progression there (C-Am-F-G7) is the royal road of the pops.
The straight lyrics are very favorable.
The chord progression at "I've got you", C to E7 is very nice.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hey guys, as floyd mentioned that is indeed a clever write - not over intellectualized (is that a word smile ) just genuinely clever and very accessible.

The vocals are nicely performed and mixed.

As always your guitar is not "just there" but, rather, the solo is expressive and the fills do their thing.

And then there is the upbeat message that is square in Janice's wheelhouse. She read the lyric before we listened the other day and said "yeah....I like that!"

We both do....the whole package.
