Daddy's Home.

Hey, sorry I've been away so long. Crazy stuff. I will try and get caught up. I see I have 200 songs to comment on. You people been busy.

Here is my political song. Just in Time for Easter.

Just in Time for Easter



By David Snyder

V1

How I miss tomorrow
You were dressed up like a yoga doll
Now time is spinning backwards
We’re all staring at a Brownsville wall
And I’m a prophet with no prophecy
isn’t that a switch
Nothing comes for free but nothing
And that won’t make us rich

CH

And here we are—all dressed up for Sunday
Here we are—making plans for someday, someday
Wishing we had something new to say
So we could come alive some way
With idea where we’ve been
which way to turn so we fit in
And just in time for Easter
again



V2

We’re not growing older
We’re just slowly making up our minds
Pay up now or pay up later
Everybody get in line
I’m a prophet with no prophecy
Been fooled too many times
But if you fall asleep enough, then
Nothing ever seems to be a crime

CH

And here we are—all dressed up for Sunday
Here we are—making plans for someday, someday
Wishing we had something new to say
So we could come alive some way
With no idea where we’ve been, or what it really means to win
And just in time for Easter
again


INST.

CH

And here we are—all dressed up for Sunday
Here we are—making plans for someday, someday
Wishing we had something new to say
So we could come alive some way
With idea where we’ve been
which way to turn so we fit in
And just in time for Easter
again

Another good one, Mr. Snyder.

Great groove. Jangly, Byrds-like...

Good write. Nice production.

"We’re not growing older
We’re just slowly making up our minds"

Nice.

I really like the lyrics on this one--full of great gems. This is the type of music I loved listening to in the late 70s and early 80s. I really dig this song.

Cool song.
When there's no vocal happening it sounds like a Kirsty Macoll Kite sessions demo.

Indeed. You packed this one with thought provoking lyrics!

Yep, it definitely has that Byrds vibe...a good thing.

Good to see you around again....

Really well done David - welcome back! Definitely getting some throwback vibes to the late 70's. Love the lyrics on this, they really add another dimension too. Top notch singing that is really memorable, as always - and it has top notch production to boot.

Not a thing I'd change - thanks for sharing smile

Wonderful sound!

made me think of R.E.M.

some great lines, although I couldn't follow it with a road map

a part of it's charm

I have stared at a Brownsville wall in the respectable part of town and was shocked

at the bullets holes and marks put there by the cartel to intimidate, of course this was

a few years back and my last trip there.

David,

I really admire your way with words—your lyrics are always fresh and original—poetic, relatable and heartfelt. Love that chorus! This tune has a lot of life, heart and depth. A pleasure to listen to.

Humble regards,

Deej

David, this one has a lot going for it. The melody is very engaging as are the thought provoking lyrics. Sung with conviction and your trademark unique sound and style. I enjoyed it very much. I did think the drums could have been louder, Tom

David,
good production!
Mix is crisp and clear. I liked Bass on this! And also found this piece of lyrics very interesting:
"Wishing we had something new to say
So we could come alive some way"

Thank you for sharing.
Misha.

Hey there David, I really enjoyed the overall tone of this. Fantastic selection of instruments here and the vibe is very appealing. That guitar tone is very warm! Keep it up!

Exactly what I was thinking!! I thought about quoting that line before reading Floyd's comment but decided on this one instead:

But if you fall asleep enough, then
Nothing ever seems to be a crime

Probably 6-8 more I could have chosen. I love the way you write. Even abstract lines that I don't get at a cerebral level just hit me in the heart. Great stuff David!! Take care. Greg

This reminds me of the Byrds, or more accurately, Roger McGuinn....

Loved that second verse lyric job.

Good work on this
