Another love song.


I THINK I'VE GOT IT IN ME

you're tired of broken promises
tired of playing games
you're tired of bad excuses
tired of someone laying blame
where is the love
you've looked for all these years
a hundred failed relationships
a million tragic tears
   
   i think i've got it in me
   to be the man you're looking for
   your knight in shining armor
   your conquering matador
   someone you can rely on
   who will always be there
   at the drop of a hat
   anytime anywhere
   you long to find a heart
   that will stay true for eternity
   i think
   i've got it
   in me

stories of prince charming
you never can forget
arthur and guinevere
romeo and juliet
love written in the stars
and poetry and prose
fairy tale princesses
the dreams that you held close
   
   i think i've got it in me...

Comments of any kind, you say? Well, here's one: you're a freaking genius (excuse my language).

This is far and away one of the most beautiful songs I've heard on here. You and a couple of others so-called miscreants on here create like there's no tomorrow. Come to think of it, the standard's incredibly high on here, but you're one of the few that are at the top of the very top. Why? Because you know how to speak to people when you write and you sing. No nonsense, no beating around the bush, no complicating things. You speak to hearts when you sing. And that's pretty unbelievable - many of us wish we could do the same. Bravo.

I'm going to go a different way with my comments this time. All the "typical" applies to every aspect of the song. At this point, I expect nothing less. smile

I know it's thrown around in the forums a fair amount to say "radio ready" but I am someone who does not say that often. It's not that I don't think a song or production isn't good enough to make it on the air. It's that, typically the songs aren't written to work with radio...so they don't.

I love it when a song comes together to THIS extent. I would say, in my opinion, without any hesitation "radio ready."

It's a beautiful song, written and produced REALLY well...all within 3 minutes.

Well done sir! I'm glad this song is in the showcase!

Just lovely. Nice acoustic playing and recording by the way.

Excellent vocal, relatable lyric, superb production and great writing.

Hope that covers it!

Really cool intro Floyd. Loved the vocal and lyric. Another first class tune. Also love how you produce your songs. Well done.

FJ,
Fantastic lyrics on this tune! Nice guitar work. Vocals and phrasing are perfect. Very crisp mix, brings all that acoustic character upfront. Enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing.

Floyd,

This is classic . . . beautifully written tune, excellent production, compelling vocal . . . all of it. I could say one of your best . . . but pretty much every tune you do falls into that category. Really like that second verse—such stellar writing. Wonderfully wrought piece of work here, Floyd. Brilliant!

My very best to you,

Deej

Nope, it's another lovely, well written, well produced, well played, and well sung love song. And nice mixing in your playing with the band. Sounds great.

Having haunted this forum for a couple of years now I know that when I hear your voice I'll be hearing a fabulous song.
More often than not a heart worn or heart sworn ballads of aged sincerity.
This is no exception fj.
The narrative is unsullied, the phrasing is uncluttered and the honesty is unmistakeable.
Loved it.

Yes, a love song. But much more than your typical, run of the mill love song smile

Love your vocal as always, and the harmonies are especially impressive.

And of course the production is always a pleasure, listened on both the 'phones and KRK's.

Good song, and nice artwork too!

Floyd,

Impressive beyond words...

Sounds like a single from an upcoming album.

"stories of prince charming
you never can forget
arthur and guinevere
romeo and juliet
love written in the stars
and poetry and prose
fairy tale princesses
the dreams that you held close"

Wow - very nice!

Bob

I see this as the fifth song from an album that produced four hit singles. It's that one on the album that you skip those four hits and jump straight to your favorite song on the album. You can't hear enough.

Great song. Great job all around.

Hi Floyd Jane,

Very soft composition with catchy lyrics. The orchestration is very pleasant. Nice combination between realtracks and instruments played by you. In addition, your voice transcribes all your emotions and that's good. Well done.

Kindly regard

I like "different". I'm trying to get there myself these days smile

Coming from you, that does mean a lot to me... I spent years writing aiming at radio. I don't do that so much these days, but it is likely still reflected in the way I write (hopefully that is, overall, a good thing...)

Thanks! I always enjoy hearing your thoughts on the Showcase songs... (and would love to see you post more yourself!!)
