I came up with this hook and chorus while shopping at Walmart..I write many songs there, such inspiration at that store..LOL!!

Danny understood the story I wanted to convey and he wrote the verses, I finished it with a bridge.

The melody was very inspired by Allison Krauss and the song "Miles to Go", it sounds NOTHING like it, just a direction I wanted to go in. I made the melody and chorded the song.

I was so lucky to have Joro (Joe Rogier) do the music and mix this for me and I thank him from the bottom of my heart because this song was very hard to get someone to believe in its potential, he did a wonderful job!

I also loved singing with myself and myself for the chorus!! LOL!!

Framed by a Fantasy
by Danny Ketcherside and Tammy
© 2012

V1

Looking back at all the years gone by
The days in between seem like a lie
Watercolor pictures we painted in those days
Lying here in my tears, it feels like I've been framed

Chorus

Framed by a fantasy
Your picture of reality
I thought your heart wanted me
Now how do we go on
Set-up by the sketch you drew
Of how you'd love me and I'd love you
But you never followed through
Our dreams are all gone


V2


Portraits neatly mounted on the wall
Hanging there ready to take the fall
Those images have all come crashing down
Broken dreams and silent screams are scattered all around


Chorus


Framed by a fantasy
Your picture of reality
I thought your heart wanted me
Now how do we go on
Set-up by the sketch you drew
Of how you'd love me and I'd love you
But you never followed through
Our dreams are all gone

Bridge

I'm going to paint it my own way
and replace your picture in the frame

Chorus

Framed by a fantasy
Your picture of reality
I thought your heart wanted me
Now how do we go on
Set-up by the sketch you drew
Of how you'd love me and I'd love you
But you never followed through
Our dreams are all gone


tag

Our dreams are all gone
Our dreams are all gone

Excellent stuff Tammy. I like the whole metaphor of the lyric and the melody/accompaniment is special. Love the harmonies in the chorus. Well done.

Kept me listening right to the end, three times.

so many fine lines in here. Good writing and no nits.

Awesome chorus!!! The song's chorus and harmony gave me a bit of a jolt!!!!..... I mean, the verses lead to the chorus nicely, but they are a bit "quiet", in comparison to this bright and lively chorus. Maybe a diffrent musical arrangement might add some pepper to the verses. I would definetly keep this on the burner, until you are totally satisfied.
Sincerely..... -Tom

You are welcome...my pleasure.
I agree that the arrangement should be expanded but, I think Tammy likes it the way it is and it's her song so that's that.
I liked this one a lot...cool dynamics cool lyrics.

Hi Tammy and Danny,

Tammy, what an awesome, awesome hook! I sure wish I had thought of it. I love the melody, your vocal it's all very good and perfect for the lyric.

Danny, I think you did a great job on this lyric. Nothing looks out of place to me.

You two have done it again, congrats!!! smile

The chorus is killer. The verses sounded a little too somber for me but the chorus made up for it.

Tom,

I understand your concern, I was going for that bluegrass crossover sound. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but always so happy you gave it a listen my friend!

Michael,

I was just at Walmart, I didn't write a song, but I thought about what you said and took a good look at the folks around me and had a very good giggle, thanks for that and for always lending an ear!

Hi Steevie,

Glad you enjoyed the song. Tammy and I had a good time working with all of the little playes on idea of being framed. She did a great job on the songcrafting and it was so easy to write to such a great chorus.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on this one.

Excellent song, great singing and absolutely brilliant lyrics smile

I can visualize this song coming out strong in a number of styles from folksy to a full-band arrangement even, it's a lovely wine if you can drink it with many different dishes smile
