Freedom is given to us in the sky

Hi All

This is my second submission to the competition. It is a co-write with Arthur Rossi (from 50 90). It just uses this Style as is _ALAMO.STY (Alamo Texas Pop Rock w Piano)

It is a pretty rough draft with no harmonies etc but I am posting it in its rough state because I think it needs a good strong male rock vocal (a little bit of Bruce Springsteen would not go amiss). So if there are any volunteers out there give me a shout!

Lyrics:

Come, friend, if you wish burn down this old lodge,
we won´t fight, no, we won´t fight nor dodge…
Come, friend, take with you take what you like,
you can just have it, so just take it
and no need to strike…

Come, take all you didn´t until now,
and we wont stop you, anyhow…
burn all that was, to us, sweet and dear,
Joanne and I will go on living,
we won´t interfere…

as…

(Chorus)
True freedom is given to us in the sky,
you will never ever see us cry:
there are treasures deep inside our soul,
theres no reason to be sad at all:
freedom is given to us in the sky
True freedom is given to us in the sky…

Come, friend, you can take whatever there's still left,
you take it you break it we won´t call it „theft“,
Joanne and I will just watch, we will not mourn,
you can do what you want to and get off!
And leave us alone!

Come, take whatevers not destroyed,
I can see that you enjoyed
it´s Joanne and me you cannot break,
There's a secret: there´s something
you can never take…

as…

(Chorus)
True freedom is given to us in the sky,
you will never ever see us cry:
there are treasures deep in side our soul,
theres no reason to be sad at all:
freedom is given to us in the sky
True freedom is given to us in the sky…

(Bridge)
Once we also had expensive things,
some were taken by the tyrant, others by the king,
it doesn´t matter we just want to live in peace…

(Chorus)

freedom is given to us in the sky
True freedom is given to us in the sky…

Hi Joanne,

Really enjoyed your song, even as a rough draft! You and Arthur did a great job.

I would volunteer to help out on vocals but alas I don't have any Springsteen in my voice cry
There are plenty here that do though so I'm sure you will find a willing volunteer.

Cheers,
Rec

Joanne

A very powerful rock style, and you have certainly done it justice.

Excellent.

Joanne,

That is a different style for you!
Quote:
I think it needs a good strong male rock vocal
so that rules me out LOL BUT I think a bit of vocal fry ( your vocie at it's limit) from you would fit also, a la Janis Joplin

enjoyed

Nice work Joanne, I agree this could use a Bruce Springsteen kind of vocal.
Well, that's gonna be a tough one to find on the forum frown

But definitely a nice song!
