Stay For Awhile
© 2018 Kenny Leverett
08232018

There’s a bluebird hangs round my door
Don’t know why he’s singing
I’m not blue anymore
I’ve forgotten the heartache I knew
He doesn’t belong here
With his point of view

I know I dreamed you
From some time before
Lost in the moment
I can never be sure
With those blue eyes
And that beautiful smile
You don’t belong here
But stay for awhile

Maybe tomorrow
Will bring some good news
Here in these four walls
It’s long overdue
Your ghost sings sweetly
Somewhere down the miles
You don’t belong here now
But stay for awhile

Really nice work on this one smile Love the vocals here, and the lyrics are powerful and relatable too. Perfectly catchy as well - this is the kind of tune I'd imagine sounding great in a live setting.

Great job and thanks for sharing!

Kenny,

This is a great lyric. Very well written. It is also a beautifully worked backing track. Everything about this clicked for me. Good vocal, as well. Enjoyed listening. Thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful song!

I love these lyrics,

Yeah the Gentle style is really cool.

You did a wonderful job with this. Great chord progression and vocals.

Wow!

Janice immediately commented on the nice piano and the lovely lyric and melody.

We often comment on how powerful your writes are with so relatively few words. Just the right ones and nothing more.

And you know we're long time fans of your vocals and productions.

Nice!!

Kenny, this is your best to date. Your vocal is very strong and those backing tracks are super. The piano and cello fit perfectly.

Kenny,

I love hearing your songs. Or more accurately...you singing your songs. You have a "star quality" that defies description.

The lyrics are always good. The melodies are always good.

Always good.

Kenny,

That`s some demo on a very good song!
Sweet and sad, with your unmistakeable voice making every word count.
Excellent arrangement; nothing needs adding.

Kenny, boy did Floyd nail this! I know this is a work in progress, but you certainly have a very solid foundation for something great! Thanks, Torrey

Kenny, what really struck me other than than the outstanding vocal performance and beautiful melody was the unique chord progression. The mix was also top notch. Great job, Tom

Hello, Kenny

Very nice song!
I love this chord progression very much.
Especially it is very good to go from F to Cm at the beginning of the melody.
Your vocal is very strong as usual.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Kenny,

It's always a fabulous treat to listen to you music. Your vocals are to die for and your composing is stellar. Love the progression on this one. Not sure what else to say except - thank you for the musical gift.

Alan
