Description
Here's another song that James wrote, he wrote this to Ed's music (Gun Shy) which James cut and pasted into this song format. As per Dave_b's request, we did a duet! Ed's never heard this but James says he'll be psyched! I hope so!
Thanks for listening and thank you to everyone who have been so kind to listen and comment, and for making me feel so welcome!

Lyrics
~ Gun Shy ~

Here she comes,heading my way
I can't find the right words to say
She's got a figure that really trips my trigger
I'd ask her out, but I might get shot down,
I aim to try just as soon as I find the right time
She's right in my sights a perfect bullseye but I'm gun shy

There he goes he's gonna walk away
God knows, I've tried everything
He's gotta figure, I'm trying to trip his trigger.
My best style, my sexiest smile
I don't know why he won't look me in the eye. He's so fine
That guy!
Can't look me in the eye, I'm right in his sights but, he's gun shy!

Gun shy (repeat)
That boy is so fine, I can see it in his eyes, he's gun shy
One things for sure (I'm pretty sure)
If I can find the nerve (he can't find the nerve)
If I can find the words (can't find the right words)
I'd walk up to her (I'm just another girl)
But I'm gun shy (gun shy) repeat
I can see it in his eyes (I don't know why I'm so shy)
Chorus
Bridge
One of these days I'm gonna make a change
Walk up to her and tell her my name
If today's is not that day, well thats okay
I'll come back tomorrow and try it again
That guy, can't look me in the eye, I'm right in his sights,
but he's gun shy!!!

anyway
I've been cutting and pastind and cutting and pasting and mixing and matching trying to turn this instrumwental into a song piece for months and then trying to write a song about the title "Gun Shy" and to include one of Ed's replies to a comment on his post about " really trips my trigger", whew! This was tough, and then it's surprisingly hard to sing for me, not sure why, but anyway here is our first rough draft, I know it needs a little work I think we're both a little pitchy in places, but this was fun, hope you enjoy it! Jd.

Nice duet!

This is really awesome.

I like that brief saturation effect on jd's vox.

You two really do make a great team.


And not to forget the music part. That is great.. smooth and laid back.

Love it, great fun music from Ed, and smirky lyrics and fun singing from you two. Perhaps a teeny less reverb on Katy, though. Well done, and a super present back to Ed!

Back for another listen now that you posted the lyrics. A nice piece of songwriting working in both the male and female perspective on the same situation. Also the gun based word play "trip his trigger" "in his sights" is clever.

sweet!
I especially love the rockin bit around 2.30, followed by the great processed call and response on the vox. The only criticism is that the vox is a little loud in the mix. It could do with some compression, and a little less treble on the FX.

Cool
Both vocals work well playing off each other in this song. I like the groove and the vocals work well. Katy is sounding much more confident and sure of herself. It's nice to see er hear the progression. I'm reminded a bit of the B52's singing style. The modulation at 3:30 is nice. Works for me!

I'm diggin' this but ...
the only 'quibble' I have is that in the introduction the 'lead' guitar line sounds like it fighting with the vocal ... with all due respect while I dig jd's music I've noticed and mentioned it to him before ... lay back a little bit so when a piece gets 'opened up' for his solo he'll KILL 'EM(just my lil two cents) ... in any event, I enjoyed this! :)
