A love song.
Simple.


REALIZED

a stay at home movie night
in the middle of the week
you get lost in their heartache
a tear on your cheek

then you catch me staring
i can't help but grin
you hide your face in a pillow
but your laughing again
   
   that's when i realized
   you are my everything
   every wish my heart has whispered
   every dream i've dared to dream realized

your eyes shine when you're scheming
an easy, innocent read
you dance in the kitchen
i move in for the lead
   
   that's when i realized
   you are my everything
   every wish my heart has whispered
   every dream i've dared to dream realized

how lucky can one man get
   
   i have realized
   you are my everything
   every wish my heart has whispered
   every dream i've dared to dream realized

Floyd,

That intro is some slick stuff! One immediately recognizes pro quality production at work here!
That piano working with the drums is so sweet and man do they sound good! Every instrument lays in the perfect spots!

This is such a good song and your vocal performance does it justice!

Excellent!

Thanks, Torrey

FJ,
the pause before the chorus is emblematic of this song.
It's perfectly timed, creates expectation and follows through.
Kitchen sink/living room drama.
The known as comfort, creation and new discovery.
ACED it!

Hi Floyd,

You really have a way of coming up with songs that invoke such sweet and real to life imagery. Great mix and vocals. I enjoyed listening to it.

Hello Floyd,

This is you, in and out!
It's going to be hard to find superlatives to describe the quality of your song, the band and its mix.
They are all very good/ outstanding.

What I liked very much was that guitar you hear after each sentence in the verse, kind of stacato rhythm.
I don't know how to describe that in proper English, but it gives a nice kind of tension.

Except the somewhat sudden end, it is a -very nice- straight forward song, with supernice lyrics.
Nice to listen to, in your chairs, with your wife and a glass of whatever and dreaming of the times that were.
At least, that's what it did to me. And my wife grinned...

Enjoy your day,
Hans

Floyd,

This is my favorite vocal of yours so far.

Really outdid yourself on that.

The rest is awesome as always.

You say love song, and it's surely a song to love. Such quality, such talent, such passion. I like what Ray says a bout the pause before the chorus. Man, you sure have an uncanny ability to make songs memorable. I've read or heard many pros talk about what's important in song writing and each and every song you do checks all the boxes as if YOU are the one they all talked about. Thanks, Floyd.

Floyd Jane...

I am beginning to regard your songwriting/performing legacy on the User's Forum not as a series of (very fine) productions released over a period of time, but rather a continuous, stream-of-musical-consciousness that flows out of the root of your being and then branches out into these songs that, in my opinion, simply reveal the many rooms that exist in your heart. Kind-of-like a tree that grows different kinds of fruits -- apples, then oranges, then grapes, then peaches -- each with their own taste and texture, but all of them sweet.

You sing about love, but then you describe scenes that vividly flesh-out the tone and the feeling of the kind of love you're crooning about: "...you dance in the kitchen, I move in for the lead." What a beautiful line, a moment in time captured and freeze-framed for the benefit of future generations. Unforgettable, man.

The music sounds inevitable, as though the notes were the only ones the lyrics would accept. Your singing is passionate not for what you express that is explicit in the lyrics, but for what you leave for us to imagine.

It is a sublime pleasure to witness your ever-developing artistry as a songwriter.

FJ,
Listened to it when you posted, re- listened it today. What can I say... you have a black belt in writing country/pop songs.
Very neat, easy listening arrangement (I have a problem with doing that smile ) Fantastic vocal performance! Mix is super clear. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.
