LIVING IN THE MOMENT

This song is a co-write with my daughter. The title came to me first a few days ago and I asked her if she had any lyric suggestions and things came together fairly quickly. The band is carrying much of the load here and it's such a great thing to have BIAB waiting there to help get the job done! It's a rocker and it's loud! I'm getting older but I'm not dead yet LOL! Hope someone enjoys it. I'm probably going to work on background vocals and my guitar parts some more...I put them down pretty quickly! Thanks for having a listen! Torrey

Words and music by
Torrey Bliss and Courtney Williams
©2021

The past is done I know that I can't change it
But you'll never let it knock me down
The future's waiting for me I can't shake it
Still you'll be here when it comes around

Oh I'm living in the moment with You

You told me that I must believe in something
You'll never let my heart come all unwound
Without you I know that I'm left with nothing
What you've given me is so profound

Oh I'm living in the moment with You
Oh it's all I really ever want to do
Oh I'm living in the moment with You
Oh You're the One who's shown me the truth

You told me
Close that door behind you
Let tomorrow worry for itself

Once upon a time no one could change me
I tried to fight these giants all alone
Your love's the only thing that truly saved me
And gave me hope that I could overcome

Oh I'm living in the moment with You
Oh it's all I really ever want to do
Oh You're the One who's shown me the truth
Oh living in the moment with You

Wow! This really well-crafted Torrey. Reminds me of Tom Petty.
I really feel this could be a hit. On the intro the harmonies
could be a little more forward, but thats really nothing.
Magnifecent write, love it. Rob 4580

Torrey,
that solo - full of character and TONE!
that voice - full of character and TONE!
Top shelf...the lyric works on multiple levels.
The whole package is ACE.
Very well done Ms. Williams.

Hi Bliss team,

There comes a time your daughter assists you on every musical front, Torrey.
Her lyrical skills are already impressing! The other skills soon follow...

You made a very good song in a nice tempo and strong melody.
I can only agree with TuneMonger, Ray and Rob on this.
But on the other hand, all your songs have that strong vibe and groove. That's your style.
Enjoyed it a lot!

Hans

Torrey,

The intro is AWESOME as is the entire song. This song showcases everything that is great about your music.

The production is off the charts - I would not touch a thing. I love the urgency that this song has.

Your are bringing your very best... Simply outstanding.

Bob

Torrey.
whoa ...POWERFULL START/SONG !!. WOWSER !
powerfull rocking song. NICE LEAD BREAK !
your lead vocs remind me of a well known uk rock singer,,, but cant put my finger on who.
SUPERB VOCS.

you know why i know this is a very good song ?
cos i keep on wanting to play it.
well well done torrey.

only thing i might suggest is chick back up singers singing harmony in the "oooh" choruses.

some people might disagree with me but i feel the abrupt ending works cos it makes people want to play song again.
one word EXCELLENT !
best
om

Lyrics live up to the title, clear simple message that works in many phases of life.
Very interesting intro leads once again to the great pop-rock sound
effects are used very well to add dimension
good vocals and guaranteed arrangement
What a talented family smile

Torrey & Courtney,

Killer!

Awesome opening - cool guitar and outstanding drums! Those drums sound great throughout - did you process those??

Exceptional use of BIAB - a dazzling Pop-Rock (emphasis on the Rock) sound!! Refreshing. It's a great thing seeing what BIAB can do in the hands of a talented musician with an imagination!!! You've got it in spades. (Nice guitar work, too)

On my 4th listen.

KILLER.

Torrey & Courtney

Absolutely great in all respects. Mega drive! Very well thought out and complex composition, but at the same time listens very well. Fun guitar playing too. I feel I am not the guy to critique your tunes, but I think that guitar solo could be a little louder.
Congrats to both of you and thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Commercial potential for sure, Torrey (if there were any justice). Wow, that solo is just so right for the song. So well conceived. Great vocal as always. Congrats to you and your daughter.
Regards,
Leon

Hi Torrey,

Amazing track! The transition just before the guitar solo is so well made... and the guitar solo in itself is also next level...

Get signed man! You can fill a stadium in Denmark if you get your music out to the broader public.
