Lyrics
Won’t You Tell Me

Something falling from the sky
I don’t know where, I wonder why
It’s been so long I felt this way
I won’t stay another day

Won’t you tell me
Won’t you let me know it’s true

Footsteps creeping down the hall
Faking feathers on the door
All the time the window’s sealed
Ceiling spins and disappears

Won’t you tell me
Won’t you let me know it’s true

Hiding secrets no one knows
Put my boots on, then I go
Frozen people, shattered dreams
Pawns and farmers, kings and queens

Won’t you tell me
Won’t you let me know it’s true

Language spoken seems unreal
For the robbers there to steal
Seen unknown and seen a spark
Seen the light on through the dark

Won’t you tell me
Won’t you let me know it’s true

really liking this one Dave. What are you doing different these days? sounds more polished, but in a good way (not a cheesy Pussycat Dolls way). Awesome track, those drums sound great BTW.

Compression is the change. I've been spending a bit more time on the drum sound. Thanks for noticing. Hey, maybe I'm making progress.

Thanks again M2,

I never purposely attempt at Lennon or anyone else, it just comes out. But, I'm always glad when someone hears a touch of Lennon in my tunes. It makes my day.

Thanks,

Have not seen you
around for while. It all sounds great to me. I was about to sing " all you need is love" before your chorus, it has similar overtones. Sweet, chilled piece well written and performed, cheers Dave.

I think it sounds more like "Blue Jay Way". I once knew a guy named Steve West.

Blue Jay Way
I mentioned "Blue Jay Way" in another comment.

I must make a little confession here..."Magical Mystery Tour" was my favorite album. I even have a great story about it. Please don't report me to the Beatle Police.

I even liked the film!?!

Faking Feathers
This is really cool stuff Dave. I guess a trip to the left coast was more than good for you. You have some really crazy lyrics going on here. Really interesting poetry, for sure. I am really enjoying the first song I've heard all year. Nice overall vibe with your vocal mix and that cymbal is really well used too.

Happy New Year Dave.

I look forward to 2009 and the music that will make it fantastic.

Kicbal said 3095 days ago (January 5th, 2009)
Cool
As other people have commented, this has a sweet Beatles infuence, but I'm also hearing that late 90's Manchester England, House Rock style, (Oasis) who were also influenced by the fab four. Cool effects on the vocals and the overall production is great. Very catchy melody and groove. I do wonder if it might be cool to use a single vocal track for parts, maybe for the 2nd part of the verse or on a bridge or somewhere like that. May give the listener a little more vocal variations to tune into. Just a thought. Nice stuff.

Only thing missing are the flutes or harmonium or some such thing - but with the way you've put this together I really don't miss a thing. Excellent writing and production - lyrics and vox. Very cool track. Way to start the new year.

2009...
Happy new year man. Starting 2009 with a more pop direction, i like it! Lots of cool subtle stuff here - the chorus is great - love the guitar. And the 4/4 keys throughout. And the distortion in the bridge. I imagined an army of whistlers at the end.

hey
first of all... Magical Mystery Tour is not a film to be embarassed by. It's so strange and wonderful. "All this mud, IN 45 MINUTES!?" God I love that movie.

Oh yeah, you posted a great song, too. I'm really impressed with how this one moves. It's very clean sounding and those strings really stand out.

Love it!
David, your songs always bring me to the sixties. I don't know if you are old enough to remember them (they say if you remember them you weren't there; not always true, you had to come down sometime). Anyway you really always capture that feeling and it is a real treat for me to listen to your music. Very well done.

Cool imagery
Very interesting lyrics... in particular I liked:
"Footsteps creeping down the hall
Faking feathers on the door
All the time the window’s sealed
Ceiling spins and disappears"

Also like how you doubled the vocal... creates a really cool vibe and natural effect. Very nice, Dave!
