While doing the production for this song, there was one measure of the drum track that I could NOT get to work the way I wanted.
So I asked Caaron (HearToLearn) if he would play drums for me.
He said "Sure!".
There are few things better than having a drum track played specifically for your song
(Headphones or earbuds to hear all the nuances of the performance)
Kind of neat to have the drum set on 8 separate tracks to work with...
...and, at times, a lot to handle...
A bit out of my comfort zone, you might say...
I also asked Janice Merritt to join in.
Singing. Not drumming.
She is always in her comfort zone. MY COMFORT ZONE
i might have a beer or two
but i don't ever get too wild
the party scene unsettles me
gettin' crazy ain't my style
but all of that began to change
when i met Debra Ann
she makes me question everything
including who i am
she takes me out
of my comfort zone
scares me little
if the truth be known
punk and proud
loose and loud
always speaks her mind
never plays it safe
she's gotta cross that line
she ain't happy
until i'm thrown
out of my comfort zone
i'm guarded, i'm careful
steady on my feet
gotten where i just don't trust
when my heart skips that beat
but she hit me hard
like some runaway train
her kiss, her touch
driving me insane
