Heart In My Hand

Description
I decided to take on the crazy RPM 2009 challenge this month. I haven't written an all original song for a while. This month has been busy but productive. This is my first track from 10 new songs I'll be mixing down in the next few days. So far I'm mostly happy with the results.

I'm not much of a lyric writer or performer. That has been the hardest part of creating this album.

Enjoy

Lyrics
Heart in my Hand

Beautiful eyes and an innocent smile
Draws me in every time and
She makes me forget my name every once in a while
I just can’t help it
She means everything
Could this be a dream?
I really found out why it pays to go the extra mile

She’s the one that makes me understand
And I believe I can do anything when I feel your heart in my hand

I’ll travel the world just to get the chance
And wait as long as it takes
The way she speaks it always puts me into a trance
Can’t imagine life alone cause
She’s the girl for me
I just can’t break free
I got to hold on while I can, got to be strong better hold my stance

She’s the one that makes me who I am
And I believe I can do anything,
That I can be anyone with your heart in my hand

Look in my eyes and realize that I need you now
This fate we can’t withstand
Your pulse is beating fast and I know this will last
I’ve got your heart in my hand

voice
I took many takes - I think I'm starting to find better pitches to sing in. I usually write in the wrong key.
Thanks for checking it out Allen

thanks
I spent a little more time than usual on this song. It's funny, just a week ago I had no lyrics and no vocals - no direction really. The finished piece came out of nowhere.

I can relate when you say coming up with lyrics quickly is the hardest part. Great track. I'd love to hear the whole album you've come up with. Are you going to use all 10 songs? Impressive output. Very balanced writing, great mixing. Strong pop rock. I really enjoyed this.

lyrics
The whole song is really about my daughter and how one day I could feel her heart beating really fast. It made me feel very connected to her. Probably sounds more like I'm talking about a girlfriend though. I had to force the lyrics.
I'll post all 10 songs here soon.
Thanks Tobin.

incredible
wow dude I really like this. your vocals are what makes it for me - both the performance and the delivery choices. the chorus is fantastic - especially that guitar part and the handclaps. and then of course the heavier part and wah solo is allll classic Nick Flash. great lyrics and sentiment, too. One of your best to date. looking forward to the others. Oh yeah - and I'm going to work on that solo tonight for you. Should have something for you soon.

thanks
Thanks man. The chorus was kind of an accident really. Just mess around with combinations enough and it'll come out OK. I've always wanted to use the handclaps - nothing groundbreaking of course but everyone needs 'em.
The rest of the songs are definitely a mixed bag. I'll probably post about 1 or so a week. Guess I'm covered for a while.
Looking forward to the solo! That's one of the last songs I need to mix.

I dig it
hey dude this is down my alley. cool guitar work, cool handclaps. nice pop sensability. chorus is terrific. nice transition at the end - entire tune reminds me of 38 Special...if they'd lasted into the Grunge scene.

cool
Thanks for the comments! The chorus is what makes it for me too. Yeah, definitely not an original sound but that's fine with me. Reminds me of a few bands also.

This is great Nick
The sound here is outstanding, man. Everything sounds stellar actually. Singing, playing and drums. Brilliant. Excellently written. The break is perfect. The song is near perfect.

near perfect
That's probably one of the coolest comments. I put a little more effort into this. Mostly because I actually have the time right now (family is out of town most of the year). I figured now is a good time as any to see what I can do musically.

Thanks Dave

hey
whats up Craft. Thanks for stopping by. I'm a lot more confident doing vocals now. I think I'm finding a better genre to work in.
I'll be working on our next collab soon - looking forward to it.

Nick,
Cool song man. I love the simplicity and simple drive of it. The singing sounds smooth and effortless and the lyrics do too. Just when I was wondering if you had gone all soft on me it opened up and the distorted power guitars come in, well done. I particularly like to treble-y clarity of the bass, very metallic sounding. The hand claps are also just right. The call and response thing on the vox is great. You have inspired me...

thanks
Well if I can inspire Racerat I can do anything! The call and answer thing came at the last minute because I couldn't sing the song as originally planned - came out way better this way though. I've got a few more of the softer songs posting soon - a few heavy also.

hmmm...
I don't know why but something about this song reminds me of Nirvana. I know thats a huge compliment, but I think about them when I hear this song. Loving it.

I think you did a great job
on the lyrics and vox. The whole track is really good. I'm doing the RPM thing also (s you know) and opted for an instrumental album. Figured I couldn't write ten actual "songs" in the required time. Looking forward to hearing the whole CD.

Hey
I didn't think I could actually write 10 full songs either, but somehow did it. Some are better than others but I haven't written an all original song for who knows how long. The challenge was worth it for sure. I just got done uploading most of my stuff a few minutes ago.

This is totally up my alley. Every part is so well done, from the vocals to the various guitars to... well all of it. A lot of talent on show here.

I actually didn't know this was in me until about 2 weeks ago. No clue. Thanks for checking it out. I'm listening to your latest right now - really cool.

All around ...
... solid tune, performance and production. About all I'd like to hear different is a touch more vocal and a touch more bass -- just a little. But that's just me. Good deal!

wow
this is awesome! i LOVE the vocals on this - the panning of them and the back and forth. great lyrics. really incredible guitar work. this is a tight piece, crisp and clean - LOVE those hand claps. this has a happy energy to it. a great song. thanks!

I've been moving way too much in the last few years and somehow eventually ended up in Texas. Funny how things work as I never saw myself here. I've been playing music in some fashion or another since I was 16 and love it. Its been great listening... [see more]
