LONG DISTANCE SATELLITE
BY DAVID SNYDER

https://soundcloud.com/david-snyder-gigs3/long-distance-satellite


V1

I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING, I FEEL YOU I FEEL YOU
IT SEEMS LIKE THE MADNESS IS WORSE THAN A WAR
AND WE’RE SPINNING WE’RE SPINNING, IN WEBS OF ILLUSION
ELECTRONIC CONFUSION, AND THERE’S NO EXIT DOOR
BUT I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I’D GIVE MY LIFE FOR YOU
AND I’LL TELL YOU AGAIN LIKE I’VE TOLD YOU BEFORE
I WILL HOLD YOU, WILL HOLD YOU, WILL HOLD YOU
UNTIL WE FEAR NO MORE

CH

OH I WILL BE YOUR LONG DISTANCE SATELLITE
I WILL BE YOUR LONG DISTANCE SATELLITE
AND ALTHOUGH I AM COVERED, I AM COVERED
I AM COVERED IN BLOOD AND SACRIFICE
YOU CAN CALL ME, CALL ME, CALL ME ANYTIME OF THE DAY OR NIGHT
AND I WILL BE YOUR LONG DISTANCE SATELLITE

V2

YOU’VE HEARD OF BETHLEHEM OVER AND OVER
AND SOMETIMES WE DON’T KNOW WHAT ANYTHING MEANS
AND IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE IN A WORLD WHERE THE POWER
MAKES SURE THAT THIS POWER IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS
BUT I HEAR YOU, I HEAR YOU, MY HEART’S BEATING FOR YOU
AND I’LL TELL YOU AGAIN LIKE I’VE TOLD YOU BEFORE
I WILL HOLD YOU, WILL HOLD YOU, WILL HOLD YOU
UNTIL WE CRY NO MORE

CH

OH I WILL BE YOUR LONG DISTANCE SATELLITE
I WILL BE YOUR LONG DISTANCE SATELLITE
AND ALTHOUGH I AM COVERED, I AM COVERED
I AM COVERED IN BLOOD AND SACRIFICE
YOU CAN CALL ME, CALL ME, CALL ME, ANYTIME OF THE DAY OR NIGHT
AND I WILL BE YOUR LONG DISTANCE SATELLITE

BRIDGE:

SO CALL ME TONIGHT
CALL ME TONIGHT
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK, AND WE WILL MAKE IT RIGHT

CHORUS

David this is your best to date IMHO. I really liked the guitar and vocals. The dynamics are excellent, i.e. very nice build up.

Excellent work here David.

This is great, like a modern day Bob Dylan! Emotional but not cloying. Really enjoyed it.

The first thing that brought out that smile that says Oh this is good was that acoustic rhythm. EXCELLENT. I agree with TuneMonger that this reminds me of Bob Dylan. Man, that guitar holds me glued to the song from beginning to end. Love it, David!!

I like this song!

As some others said, this is one of your best that I've heard you post here.

The lyrics move smoothly with the driving acoustic. Brilliantly done.

Good to hear another one from you. This sounds like a Bruce Springsteen song from his Asbury Park days.....


Good job all around.

Hi David.
I really like this. The chorus reminded me a little bit of Paul Simon for some reason. Great vocal. Love the drive of the acoustic rhythm guitar and the build.
Regards,
Leon

David,

First off, like the write a lot—particularly your use of repetition throughout (“we’re spinning, we’re spinning”; “But I love you, I love you, “ etc.)—gives it a nice structure to the song and rhythm to the vocal. Kind of has a Dave Matthews feel to me, maybe even a hint of Counting Crows. Second, from a music production standpoint, it’s really, really solid. The rhythm Celtic Reel guitar really resonates throughout and holds the song together. At times the strings/orchestra jumps forward just a tad too much for me, but that may just be me—offering up for what little it may be worth. Cool tune!

Best regards,

Deej

David, great choice with the sparse first half and then the synth later on. Well written and delivered with conviction. Much enjoyed,Tom
