Because it's the right thing to do...



LET'S STAY IN

you've always been one
who enjoyed the spotlight
you love partying with friends
deep into the night
but lately things have gotten crazy
feels like we might drown
maybe we consider
slowing it down
let's go a different way
we can stay right here girl
what do you say
   
   let's stay in
   seems like the best thing we can do
   baby let's stay in
   you take care of me
   i'll take care of you
   let's stay in

i know your friends play
fast and loose with the truth
believe it not
no one's bulletproof
so sooner or later
they'll be caught off guard
laugh all they want
it'll bring them down hard
so let's go a different way
we can stay right here girl
what do you say
   
   let's stay in
   seems like the best thing we can do
   baby let's stay in
   you take care of me
   i'll take care of you
   let's stay in

let's go a different way
we can stay right here girl
what do you say
   
   let's stay in
   seems like the best thing we can do
   baby let's stay in
   you take care of me
   i'll take care of you
   let's stay in
   let's stay in
   let's stay in
   wait for the fade
   let's stay in...

Hi Floyd ...

Musically, quite a bit different than what you usually do. But I like it!

As always, your track selection and mix is spot on. The lyric says it all. But I think your chorus, in it's simplicity and very appropriate message really captures the heart of the song. Well done and the best advice possible. When a song is well conceived, well constructed, well delivered, and says something worthwhile ... you can't do much better. Just my thoughts.

Take care and be safe.

Alan

Man!

You really moved me with this one, floyd, and I think that's all that needs to be said!

Just what I needed to hear this morning smile

FJ,
raising a bar in turbulent times takes skill and will. Excellent supportive song! You really got a hang of using contemporary sounds and still have a traditional Country feel of your tunes. Listens very smooth. When I try to do something like this, it either sounds too banal or too weird, you on the other hand found a solid middle ground fusing styles. Mix & vocals are A+ (I would not expect less smile )
Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Man, you are the master, floyd. You make me wanna kneel on the floor raising my arms up and down while bending my head low. Whenever I hear one of your productions, I always feel, "Yeah, that's what I want to be able to do." Well done! Well said!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Dear Floyd,

WOW - I wouldn't be surprised if this song would break the charts...

Thanks a lot for chosing the subject, and thanks a lot for working it out with such a heck of a tune. Top-notch lyrics, fantastic melody (and what a chorus...), a great backing track and your vocals are simply gorgeous and very convincing.

Good, good, good....

Stay healthy, silverback !!!

1st verse...aw, a love song.
Chorus-See, this is nice
2nd verse-those people are idiots and they get what's coming to them. (Exaggeration) lol
Chorus to End-See, this is nice

Great section builds in this. Just the perfect song for current events. I hope it makes some people on both sides of the fence think!

What a cool song!

So, I responded and am now left with nothing to do. I guess I'll just sit here and wait until you post your next song later this morning. wink

That's the way it's done. laugh

It's got the plausible deniability of appearing to be "just" a love song, with the specifics being vague enough to apply to just about any relationship.

Of course, well written, sung, and produced. Pop and fun to listen to - loved the claps and other loops.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Floyd you knocked it out of the park again!

A great message here.

This should be on the radio ASAP.

That's cool - a U2 style ballad in the backing and an fj style narrative & melody on top. Works wonderfully well.


Cheers

This song will be around and relevant as a great song long after Covid-19. The lyrics are as appropriate to general 'love' as they may pertain to the virus.

Instrumentally and lyrically you've written a song that's as pertinent to life after Covid-19 as it is to our current circumstances. Every now and then a song comes along that touches us. You've hit on every now and on every then. You sure pulled it off with this one. It makes my list of favorite Floyd Jane songs...

Enjoyed my listen.
