Jah Mon!----Here's a little horror for Halloween....A gift that keeps giving all year 'round....

(Changed up the vocals and added my percussion track...It's a bit more of what I had in mind!)


https://www.reverbnation.com/ihor/song/26897326-zombie-love

Zombie Love

Words/Music ©I. Wolosenko 2016

Vocals - Igg
Lead guitar/Bass - Tony Di Gregorio
Guitar - Igg

Verse 1
She was a soft summer breeze, drifting through my life
I was hoping she would stay with me, maybe be my wife
But she told me we were never meant to be, and then blew away
I took my broken love and buried it that day in a deep dark grave

Chorus
Zombie love..............A love that never happened
Zombie love ............ dreams won't go away
Zombie love ..............you keep coming for me, coming for me
Coming back to break my heart again ...and again ... and again... and again

Verse 2
I can be walking down a boulevard,... It's a sunny day
Here comes a girl that looks like her, Zombie love springs to life again
And every night when I go to sleep, it's waiting in my dreams
I'm waking up in cold dark sweat ,my head is filled with screams

Chorus

Verse 3
I try to reason with my heart ....but it won't obey
Though it was such a long time ago,.... seems like yesterday
Why can't you go away ... leave me alone, before I go insane
I need to find myself another girl so I can heal this pain

Chorus
Zombie love...............A love that never happened
Zombie love ..............Dreams won't go away
Zombie love ..............I am bleeding for you
Bitter tears and howling pain
Zombie love..............I keep running from you, running from you
Zombie love ..............Rising from the grave
Zombie love ..............You keep coming for me, coming for me
Coming back to break my heart again ...and again ... and again... and again

Made for Halloween! I thought I heard a Jimmy Buffet influence. Maybe, maybe not.

Hi Tony and Iggy2,

I like the reggae vibe that's not pure, but mixes with some Spanish feel, especially in the chorus.

Great hook. "Zombie love" almost writes itself, though it could've been silly--about zombies getting it on, but you make "zombie love" a metaphor and rigorously work it and it's fresh and funny and sweet all at once, and a bit harrowing, too. I mean--it just won't go away, you know?

Enjoyable all the way around. smile

Mike
