Fly (High)

Description
Not sure what this is.. just kinda came out of nowhere tonight. The lyrics are based on a reoccurring dream. I posted this in open collabs because although there's not a lot of space left in it, I thought it could use something more. Maybe bass? synth? not sure. Oh - there's some cringeworthy pitchyness in the chorus, but I'm too lazy to retrack it. I gotta go to bed!

Lyrics
I am running in a dream
down the middle of a street
striding impossibly wide
one last leap and then I fly
up high

Looking out for power lines
as I climb into the sky
people watch from down below
higher and higher and higher I will go

Fly high

and when it's time to go back down
i'm afraid to hit the ground
getting up here was easy
but going back down frightens me

will I freefall to my end?
or will I wake up in my bed?
I dont want to know tonight
so I'll stay up here in the sky fly high

Fly high

offbeat
A departure of sorts for you. And I really dig that. It could definitely use a bass line. And maybe a few little texture sounds in the mix. But, who am I to say that?

Dig this as is, too.

aligned for lounge
I like the bird sounds :) And I think acoustic bass would work really well. I like the concept, and the music plays perfectly to it. Really like the elect piano bit. Funny thing is the tune i'm about to push has a similar groove. Maybe the stars are aligned for lounge?

Trippy
Cool track with a very subtle feel to it Ridd. Like the way you interpret this dream into lines that make sense. None of my dreams ever make any sense to me so I can't do what you did here. But then again I'm also not you.

Great beginning, be interesting to see where the MJ family takes it.

i just read
that a LOT of people have this almost exact same dream - jogging, then bigger strides then flying. even looking out for powerlines. apparently it means you want to have control of something or 'be on top' of something and the power lines are obstacles in your way. then the 'afraid to go down' part means you're afraid to lose control once you have it.
glad you like this. i hope someone jumps in on this collab too, though i fear i didnt leave enough room for much :(

Very tempting this Ridd... it's really good as is... but low strings perhaps....

The tone you get
out of that Big Baby is increadable. Great song and many places to go with this. I to wonder where it will wind up with so many creative minds here at MJ's.
Be well, Russ

reoccurring dreams
it's either flying or showing up someplace with no clothes on.

cool track. I agree that some low strings would work. I also like the rhoades keyboard addition. I wouldn't mind hearing a bit more of that

ridd....
this may sound really strange, but i'm definitely hearing an odd 50/50 mix of the eels and failure in this one! a very odd mixture when thinkin bout it, BUT when hearing it .... well, like your other material, it blows me away! nicely done my friend!
