Positively Unedited

Hello Social Media Friends!

It’s been a bit, and of course a great deal has happened in all of our lives.

Retirement (almost two years now) has brought much to The Studio That Never Sleeps and my positively unedited life:

  • A part time job that I love
  • Semi-successful Etsy storefront
  • Book one published second book in editing
  • Mustang turned 50 thousand miles
  • Came across loads and loads of things I’ve written over the past 40 years
  • Probably a ton more!

To all my car bloggers: this post, and perhaps more to come won’t be so much about the automotive life.

The following is an ‘unedited’ country song that I wrote September 2017 with Jason Aldean in mind as the singer.

Every note has a color
Downbeats got their tonecolorful-music-notes-background-vector-18446114
Create a four beat measure
And make the song your own
Every pause has a whisper
The wait, the wait unknown
When you craft your own treble
The trouble you must own

Sing me a song yeah, sing me a song
Just long enough to string me along
Down a path of crescendo lies
More trouble than you’ve ever known

Every note has a color
Downbeats got their tone
When you ignited the fire
I stopped staring at the phone
Every pause has a secret
The wait, the wait unknown
Waited for the signal
For the tidal wave to foam

conch-shell-on-beach-993x496Don’t send me conch shell rhythms
Filled with your I don’t knows
Bouncing inside sea side echoes
This white sand beach is closed

Whole note half truths
Feedin’ me five lines at a time
The down beat beat me down
Right on down to trouble town

Just don’t… send me the sea with wait and see mysteries

And don’t… send me mysteries with see and wait used-to-bes

Just beware of the treble you crafted
And don’t be comin’ round to trouble town

Let me know what you think in the Comments area. Any ideas on a title?
