WE CAN STILL GET CRAZY
©2018 Mackie Humphries

V1
You’re the best love I ever had
I know sometimes we’ve both been mad
Wanting to walk out that slamming door
Then lonely nights call out once more.

CH
When life seems hard we may both cry
Then we give in deep in the night
Those vows we made were sworn to keep
We can still get crazy just you and me.

..........................SOLO.......................

V2
Come a little closer see what I mean
Feel my heart beat you’re still my dream
Girl our forever was meant to be
We can still get crazy just you and me.

CH
When life seems hard we may both cry
Then we give in deep in the night
Those vows we made were sworn to keep
We can still get crazy just you and me.

OUTRO
You’re the best love I ever had
Through the good times and the bad
2X Those vows we made were sworn to keep
We can still get crazy just you and me.

Hi Mackie!

Nice one, hey you can still hit those high notes, I was impressed! You write about heartache often, but this one's happy, with a little trials thrown in--makes it real, as your songs always have a genuineness that's believable and relatable. Nice one!

Overall I like the feel of this. There doesn't seem to be any lines that show them being crazy together. Maybe that's something to look at?

Hi Mackie:

I enjoyed my listen... and agree with Eddie about the "genuineness" of your work. Is it perfect? Not yet... but you are so close. Keep at it, my friend... the finish line is within sight. ----Dave

Always good to hear another one from you, Mackie.

As eddie notes, it's nice to hear you do a "positive" love song...

Thank for the good Review--I like those lines also--I've got a couple more saved up for a sad song: " The doctor can't give me no drug that will bring back her love"

Mackie, that was really nice. I see my relationship through your words crystal clear. As a writer, we are always trying to connect with the listener, and for me you did. I like the chord progressions and the melody also. Thanks for sharing!

Travis--

Thanks for giving this one a wink and whistle!

I see where England is with USA and France on the Syrian war! It's all so sad OVER THERE!

Hey buddy to my ears this is one of your best.
Hits all the right notes.
Wonderfully written and has some beautiful guitar work.

As usual vocals are full of emotion and draws the listener in..... like a pro.

Sometimes we keep coming back to a song, changing a few things--I guess most writers do!

Thanks for your positive review!

I haven't been on this site for that long but I remember this one.
Must have been one of your updates.
You bring a sad quality to all your songs, which I have always admired but could never replicate.
Here's to the finished product.

I always appreciate your reviews--I did this one with with another vintage Fender champ amp.

I realized a long time ago, I'm just a hacker at music, but I can hope that others can see something in my songs.

I'm trying for the big EIGHT-O my next birthday.

Thanks for giving a listen!

Mackie,

I must have Springstein in my head tonight, because this is the second song I’ve listened to this evening and heard hints of Mr. Bruce. Like this stripped as it is, the raw guitar is magnetic. But would love to hear this with a little bit more on the production—not that I’m the guy to provide input on that—but a little more (not much more though) and this might go to another level. Enjoyed this.

Best regards,

Deej

Yes, I keep working and changing things in some of my older songs: for better or worse--I guess you could say: I'm looking for resolve. Steve Earl had a song years back called, "I Ain't Ever Satisfied"--To me, emotion is more important to deliver the idea of a song than the production. The pros can add all the bells and whistles, but without the emotion in a song, there isn't much to the story! You have taken some of my songs and made them better, than my bare bones original--For that, I thank you!

Appreciate you checking this one!

DJ

I really appreciate your thoughts on this song. Sometimes I have more production, but that usually happens on the COLAB songs--Half of my songs on the mp3 board are just ME and my TELE, and are raw and need more to be finished!

Thanks!

Hey Mackie. Been a long time since I heard one of your tunes. Sure miss them. This one sure has that Mackie magic. .Love the line "We can still get crazy you and me". Great line. Look forward to hearing more.
