Something completely different from us this time, rock, country rock?
Not sure, but please have a listen
Regards
Dave and John

Drink with Me

Ain't got much just friendship to give;
no flash car on the drive where I liveó
lived alone since love come to an end.
Her lies, always persuasive, took our friends.

It gets lonely when my dayís works done
I sure miss hanging out with someone . . .
Iím at the bar in my own company.
Will somebody have a drink with me?

Does anyone care to have a drink with me?
Let's hop on a cloud from reality.
Pretend that we're happy, like good friends should be.
Does anyone care to have a drink with me?

Hey, don't be silly, don't you be shyó
this one's on me I'm happy to buy.
It's my anniversary one year today.
Iím single now, but it ain't all what they say.

Does anyone care to have a drink with me?
Let's hop on a cloud from reality
Pretend that we're happy, like good friends should be.
Does anyone care to have a drink with me?

Do you come here a lot?
Is this your second home?
Are you one of those guys
who keep checking their phones?
Me, I get tired of keeping myself to myself.
Hey, there's a crowd of us nowó
letís leave bygones alone;
find the ultimate high
in a place all our own.
Set life aside, and
cheers, letís drink to ourselves.

Does anyone care to have a drink with me?
Let's hop on a cloud from reality
Pretend that we're happy, like good friends should be.
Does anyone care to have a drink

What a nice surprise, Guys:

You bet, I'll buy the next round. Genre? It can be just about anything you want it to be. Nice work and I enjoyed my listen.

Hi John and Deej.
Certainly lively.
A little wordy in places and maybe too much going on instrumentally but maybe that's just my own preference.


Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Dave and Vic,

Thanks for stopping in and giving this one a spin. I think I threw Travis for a bit of a loop in where I went with his lyrics--in part, motivated by my desire to do a few more "rockier", lively songs after a string of ballads. But I'm pretty happy with how it came out, and glad you seemed to enjoy it.

Vic, I got a couple of comments elsewhere that the symbols in the chorus were a bit too harsh and clouded the vocals. In response, I've dimmed the symbols down, and I think that helps to a degree. I'm hoping Travis can repost and that maybe it's better to your ears . . . maybe not, LOL!. But as you say, it's a preference thing, and I did want this to move.

Hope all is good with you.

Deej

Hi John and Deej,

I just listened to this one - a rock song delivered with lot's of excitement. Deej I like your vocals and what a great collaboration between you two. "Let's hop on a cloud from reality" is a great line.

Sounds Country to me. Definitely a modern day country rocker. Not at all my genre, but nonetheless a very popular one now a days. Very commercial imo and well done. Good production, write and some mighty fine singing. Well done.

Dave

Cheers Dave, I thought it more country, but something we wanted to avoid, but I think the lyric led it down that path.
Great job anyhow from Deej
Cheers

Calvin, Jane and Dave:

Thanks to you all for the listen. And regarding the genre, Dave, I think you have the right of it--in fact, when I posted it on Soundcloud I put it in the Country genre. I'm hoping it's more on the Country side of Rock rather than the Rock side of Country (not that there's anything wrong with that, LOL!) . . . but if the song works, it doesn't matter much to me what the genre is . . . and I hope this one does.

All the best to each of you,

Dave
