I Know It's Wrong

I know it's wrong but it feels so right. You can't be seen with me.
We don't belong together in this light. We can't let others see.
You know it's dangerous. I know it's wrong.
We know attraction could be so strong.

I know it's wrong but you look so good. But looks will never last.
I know we shouldn't, but you know we could.
And life can change so fast.
You know we're strangers. I know it's wrong.
I'd seek forgiveness, but she'd be long gone.

Where would I be if she would say goodbye
and I lose the love we made?
How could I ever look her in the eye
and confess the sin that I have strayed?

Some say it's wrong --these old fashion ways.
Most think I should give in.
But don't prolong your teaseing phase, and in the end I'll win.
You must keep moving. I must go home
where I won't be alone.

Marty,

Love this! What a great song. It has a similar swagger like the old Elvis song "Reconsider Baby".

Your vocal and bass are awesome and Dave sounds great as usual.

Great, great stuff!

Very cool Marty, VERY.
The only nit is that there's a click or plectrum on string noise at about 13 seconds that jumped out at me...no one seems to have noticed but it may be worth addressing.
You are the Ace of Basses.
COOL stuff.


Cheers

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Nice solid blues. Well put together and a easy listen. Some of the lead inserts seemed a bit brittle (harsh) but that is probably mostly my headphones. Maybe try and duck those a little behind the vocals? JMHO!!!! Lead break is awesome.

Thanks, Bob Dean. Yeah, that was my swaggering cowboy voice. He has morals though.

Man, you have gifted ears, Ray. I never noticed it. It must be the bass. Thanks for dealing that trump card. Coming from you it's a HUGE statement. I have a song nearly ready where you really really helped me lay down the right Reggae track.

Thank you, David! Now I'm smelling smoke around the campfire while we're all kicking out the Blues.

Yep. A happy ending. Thank you, floyd. Always a smile when reading your comments. Thanks so much. I'm not a vocalist. When I sing a song I seem to get in character or something. That's my weathered cowboy. He appeared in a couple others. I have one in the hopper where I reach a Bb(1), where I thought only Vic Arnold could go.

Hey, thanks so much for the suggestion, Rick. In fact it was Dave who gave me the way to solve the problem. I was just gonna say the guitar is much more valuable, in my opinion, but I am learning. Thanks again. man. Much appreciated.

Hi Marty and Dave,

You have a very nice timbre in your (lower) vocals in this delicious Blues, Marty!
I like that sound.
Dave plays the stars from heaven. Altogether a delicious Blues as I said.
And I saw that black Queen was cheating terribly. I think the other side was distracted by your song.
Must be.

But other than that deception, I didn't notice anything wrong with the lyrics. So the title left me confused... ;-)

Marty, blues at it absolute best.
Outstanding vocal and lyrics.
You are one heck of a song writer and bassist.
Everyone knows Dave plays the heck out of that guitar.
Loved it.

Thank you, Peter! Man, I've been listening a lot to the J&B Public Domain albums, and you are quite amazing on them. No surprise, but still...

Hi Hans. AH, you noticed the queen's gamble. It's surprising her opponent didn't, but not likely my song is to blame. The title says it all. It's about the queen's move. I (we) Know It's Wrong.

Oh yeah, good slinky blues!

You sing the heck out of this, Marty and your bass is, as always, buttery smooth. Dave’s solo and fills capture the emotion within the lyric.

We enjoyed the video and noticed something new each time we watched. Also both of us had a chuckle when we saw that “tempting” apple.

And yea for the happy ending for the couple!
