The Gamer's Dance
Here's my first song. Period. Well, I'm not a songwriter or performer. I just finished my novel Window On Pike Place, print and audio, and the audio experience emboldened me. Anyway, we were at a nephew's wedding last year and at one time we were alone with the bride and groom (she's MT in the song), and they are avid gamers, comicon etc., and I asked if there were a gamer's dance, and they had no idea, but I looked it up in Google and couldn't find one, so I wrote this for them.
I did minimal processing, saving it as a wav file and bringing it into Audacity and then adding the vocal. I paid attention to panning, but with 2017 it came that way. I did compression once, but I didn't know (and still don't) know what I was doing, except it made it sound better. I am just starting on this journey. I would certainly appreciate any comments or help.
MartyThe Gamer's Dance
Stealthy movement left and right
Hurried rushing zombie flight.
Softly kicking out to voided space,
But now drawn to love’s embrace.
Hips swaying, you’re surveying in a planet's trance,
Vectored in directed spin to the gamer's dance.
Quest one starting off solo in the air,
Soon now one more, you’re a pair.
As you, untrue, pretend irony,
Add more, truth fore, instant harmony.
Watch out, turn around, throw a laser glance,
Magnetic tape them you can escape them at the gamer's dance.
Quest two dream on search the hidden lair,
Sink your teeth in, comicon with flair,
Lovers, doers, arm in arm they fly,
Crossing, magic, starbright rainbow sky,
Eyes searching hearts lurching, every sound enchants,
MT, Jeffry, at the gamer’s dance.
