Ever wake in the morning with a vague feeling something's wrong?

Fiddle - RT 618 Allis


| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E Woke up this | C#m morning | F#m7 feeling somethings | B7 wrong

| E Skys are grey but | C#m that's ok be | F#m7 sunny before | B7 long

We | E kissed and cuddled | C#m morning friends | F#m7 kept each other | B7 warm

| E Still the feeling | A follows me | E causing this a | B7 larm

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E It's not me and | C#m it's not you | F#m7 it's not where we | B7 live

| E Somethings displaced | C#m somewhere and | F#m7 somethings got to | B7 give

| E Could it be the | C#m climate or sad | F#m7 stories in the | B7 news

Or | E something hidden | A in the past | E givin me the | B7 blues

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


Theres a | E ghost walking | C#m on my grave | F#m7 I'm not even | B7 in it

The | E search for reasons | C#m seems so strange I | F#m7 just can't be | B7 gin it

| E Maybe the re | C#m ciever is | F#m7 tuned a touch too | B7 fine

And the | E feelings I'm re| A ceiving are not | E mine | B7

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E Got to push on | C#m got to move | F#m7 got play the | B7 game

| E Got to see the | C#m good things | F#m7 never mind the | B7 blame

There's | E so much light and | C#m so much shade and | F#m7 so much in be | B7 tween

And | E life is so much | A better now | E than it's ever | B7 been

| E | A | F#m7 | B7


| E The morning grows | C#m cloud comes in we | F#m7 light the | B7 fire

| E Warm and cozy | C#m write a song and | F#m7 aim for something | B7 higher

| E Now we're under | C#m way and there's | F#m7 nothing more to | B7 say

Except good - | E day | A | E | A | E | A | E ||

Good day.

I was thinking exactly the same thing! Rich, you have some lyrics here to think about! Good job! Thanks, Torrey

Really nice work here! I particularly enjoyed the vivid and descriptive lyrics in this one. The whole tune has a really nice sway to it. It is very pretty, and calming. It has a sincere quality that really draws me in.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hello, Rich

It is a simple but nice song using the golden chord progression of pops. (I - VIm - IIm7 -V7)
Perhaps I believe thousands of songs have been composed with this chord progression, but I think that your originality is expressed exactly in this tune and it is wonderful.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Rich,

Your approach is always so... YOU.
Always sparkling and original.
And that subtle touch of drama in your voice, that works great in this song.
So does the fiddle.

floyd expressed it so well. And yeah "there's a line!"

This is a fine write, arrangement mix and vocal performance.

There's a lot to like here...and we did.

The feeling I get from your songs Rich is that you are a poet the loves to put them to music! Your lyrics are fantastic!

Great mix with a strong vocal.

I really enjoyed this.

Artfully evokes a familiar melancholy mood. Well written and performed with some jewels lines.

Much enjoyed!

Hi Deryk,

I'm glad you like the lyrics.
It's a bit special when staff comment.
You must see & hear so many songs.
Glad you feel it's sincere also.
It is about real feelings.

Cheers.

Thanks for your comments Shigeki.

My chord progressions had been getting a bit confusing so I decided to try something
more regular. I'm glad you like it.

Cheers.

Hi Rob I'm still chuckling over being called subtle
and the song was pretty bare without the fiddle.
Thank you for such lovely comments.

Cheers.

Hi Lawrence,

Thank you for the artfully. Love it.
Seriously. Yes it's a funny mood I suspect catches most of us occasionally.
Hope it's not too familiar to you.

Cheers.

Hi Richard,

I listened to this a little while ago but I've just discovered that I didn't leave a comment.

I enjoyed listening. You are developing quite a flair for lyrics and songwriting in general. Like floyd, the line "There's a ghost walking on my grave I'm not even in it" stood out for me. Nice!

I always enjoy what you bring to the forum. It's always different and always rings with sincerity and honesty.

It's great having you around more regularly again.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Noel,

You are most generous with your comments.
I remember you running a songwriting exercise which helped greatly to get me started.
Thank you.
Have discovered that songs are not really stories. More impressions and hints.
Like poetry I suppose and I have always dabbled with doggerel.
Have still got about 50 songs from old fawms and a 50/90 to finish/rewrite.
Don't like abandoning anything completely.
So will definitely see you around.

PS - Please don't feel obliged to leave comments.
There's too much happening here these days to check out everything.

Cheers.

Hi Tom

Thanks for your very supportive comments.
It's harder to write about more personal feelings but I guess many people feel similarly.
I have certainly had a good run with this song and I'm glad you like it.

Cheers.
