Lie to Me

As some of you know, I spend too much time in the car commuting to work, which leaves me little time during the week for writing and conjugal visits. If I had my druthers, I'd prefer the latter. laugh Summer break is a week away---then two months of vacation. Anyway, I managed to write this: another musical character sketch.

2920 Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm FolkSlowSw16Brent
869 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm ModernRnBRockWar
366 Bass, Electric, Country
Symphonic Elements Striiings
Drums on Demand Indie Pop


Just close the door
And turn around
Don’t talk anymore

Turn off the light
Embrace the dark
Let’s get lost in the night

Please lie to me
I need you to lie to me

What are you doing?
I don’t want to know
Save me from the ruin

Keep me near
Tell me you love me
Say what I want to hear

Please lie to me
I need you to lie to me

The truth won’t sent me free
All is ask is that you let me be
And lie, lie,
Lie to me
I need you to lie to me

Wow what a melody! This has such a beautiful flow to it and the chord structure and arrangement are very nice! Those strings really make this song pop! You did a super job in all aspects of this one!

Thanks, Torrey

Hi Scott,

I really like that vocal melody you came up with! And love the passionate vocal too.

Sounds good, enjoyed! Enjoy your vacation!

BTW, the first song that Chris Spruit and I did together, way back in 2015, was also called Lie To Me smile

Hi Ezekiel,

Very emotional song, with a beautiful melody!
You sang your heart out, so to say...

I was thinking about your lyrics with that heartfelt cry to lie to you.
And I decided not to. Your song was too beautiful to lie about wink

Have a nice vacation,
Hans

Scott, what an emotional heart felt song

Fantastic vocal with outstanding lyrics

The backing band was perfect as was the mix

I will not lie to you IMHO this is your best to date

Loved it

Dave, after reading your comment, I had to go to your site and find the song. I was curious to see if the theme of the song was the same since they were titled the same, but the content was much different. I liked your song too!

good tune tho !! you would have to tempo it up !!seems your vocals are too slow too match the tempo of the song !!, both are dragging !.

This would be a better song /listen, if you redone the tempo and re sung it at the newer father tempo !!

Scott,
One of the most unusual and melody adventurous tunes I have heard by you (sorry, not lying).
Clever musical bed and ACE vocals. Very creative stuff. Couple of spins, listens very well. Enjoyed it and thank you for sharing.

Ezekiel,

Yeah, those chord changes married to that melody—really easy on the ear. The backing instrumentation (Symphonic Elements?) really work well here and give that chorus rich depth. Vocal is compelling. Sweet tune!

All my best to you,

Deej

Scott,
A very cool melody and you sing those simple, pleading lyrics with conviction and, of course, your unmistakable rich tone.
The strings are a nice touch.
Very good!

Scott...what a beautiful melody...so melancholy and captivating...the chord structure reminds me of the British composers like Lennon and McCartney or Elton John...the vocal is so passionate and perfect for the piece...so well done in composing, arranging and performing...this is so good!
