Lyrics
You and I in
for the long haul

heart on the wire
fly on the wall

Playin for keeps
read'em and weep

we are in it
for the long haul

We're between a rock
and stuck in a harder place

we're between a rock
and stuck in a harder place

You say
you will

I say
no you won't

you say
I must

I say
I can't do that

We're between a rock
and stuck in a harder place

We're between a rock
and stuck in a harder place

We're between a rock
and stuck in a harder place

and we're in it for life...so we say....

i'm never right and you're never wrong
why do we bother with this same old song

you say i'm nuts, I say you're crazy
I say you're shady, you call me lazy

We're between a rock
and stuck in a harder place

We're between a rock
and stuck in a harder place

We are stuck, we're stuck in the abyss known as life
we are stuck, we're stuck in the glue of love
we are stuck, between a rock we're stuck in a harder place
we are stuck, between a rock we're stuck in a harder place
we're stuck, in love, we're stuck in a harder place

thank you, Karen! I had a overall bad day today, so when Adam got me the vox file, I said "I WILL have this mixed before midnight, if anything, to salvage this crap day!"

woohoo! This is SO FUN! I loved the original instrumental and Adam's vocals just really brought it all together. Love the background vox. Eddie, awesome piano and guitar work. Now you just need to throw in a 5 minute solo on that guitar and it's all good! Great job!

Love
the opening. Nice guitar work. I usually prefer vocals without effects on them, and I feel the same here. The backups sound find with the effects, but I'd like the lead vocal to be more out front. Love the chorus =) very catchy, catchy tune in general. Ending was a little funky, I think a sustained guitar finale and vocals would work well. Really enjoyed this though. Thanks for sharing =)

up a notch
Sounds even better with Adam's fun singing on this, great harmonies too. I agree the vox could be boosted slightly, or a little EQ hole punched into the music to make the vox stand out a teeny bit more, but it's really quite good as is. Great guitar/bass/synth work, does feel Cars-ish. Glad to know you waited to get this version done before making my CD :)
ttfn,

I completely agree!
This came out great... But... I need more level on the vox. It's so good I want to hear it better.

But hey! Excellent job you guys!

When I was 12 years old, I had a nutty notion that I wanted to play an instrument. At first, I wanted to play the drums. That went over like a lead balloon, so I told my parents I wanted to take up the guitar. Thinking this was just a passing fad, mo... [see more]
