Zest For Life

A simple country pop song with a joyful story about finding a long-lost zest for life. Thanks to Miira for her gentle interpretation.

RealDrums: TeenBeatUptempo

RealTracks:

#684 Electric bass
#405, #1119, #1681 Acoustic guitar
#1684, #1718 Electric guitar
#2201 Nylon guitar

Vocals: Miira

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017

Lyrics:

Where have you been
for all these years
didn't see you on the ski slope
didn't hear your happy cheers.
I searched through my memories
from the fairgrounds to the football fields
I flipped through my photo albums
was there flame behind your shields?

I lived a steady life
where nothing hurt
comfort hushed the luring sounds
but I am ready now
to let zest give many ups and downs
(zest gives many ups and downs x 2)

Where have you been
since you settled in fear
did you try to live a void life
without a single tear?
I hired a private eye
he studied many flimsy clues
the only good trace he found was
one vague pathetic excuse.

[Chorus]
didn't know how to advance
didn't see the sparkle at first glance
but just by a happy chance
I've run into someone I've been.

What have you done
since you started to wane
have you met with any dangers
have you tasted real pain?
You told you walked in the shades
from depression to a hazy peak
you said you traversed the jungles
to catch fool's gold in a creek.

[Chorus]
I removed your burden of past
I cut your shackles of doubt at last
freed the true enthusiast
welcome back here the zest of my life.

[Chorus]

-------
Janne

Hi Janne,

Melodic, and hey... relatively simple, considering your usual songwriting wink
We especially like the chorus.
Nice work.

Janne,

As I said on Soundcloud, this is such a great groove and it fits the title perfectly! You've done a terrific job composing this one and putting it together. As always, Miira's singing is wonderful to listen to.

Have you ever thought about submitting a song in Finnish to the forum? I'd love to hear something written and performed in your home language.

All the best,
Noel

Very cool song.
Excellent vocal as usual and excellent composition as usual.

Very solid real tracks that give a lot of unity to the base.

Thanks Ember for your comment smile BIAB has so many possibilities, I used some realstyle as a base, but noticed that the song needed more acoustic guitars. Also I wanted to change the drums to a softer one. There are plenty of good acoustic guitars, but finding a suitable RealDrum was much more difficult in this case.

Hello, Janne

Very nice tune!
Simple and natural, but very good melody.
The chord progression is also very simple, considering your usual works.
Mira's vocal is just fitted to this song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.
