Creative Brief

This is a spin-off of a soulful track created by Lawman. The lyrics are below, and I sang it as a demo of how they fit the music. 

 

The Place Where I Grew Up?

 

I went back home for a visit

After many many years

Makes me wanna cry

Makes me wanna cry

Some painful, painful tears

 

Chorus:

For these streets

These empty streets

Of my hometown

People used to hustle

People used to bustle

Every now and then

Someone would tussle

Can this be the place ….

My hometown

Where I grew up?

 

Where's the old corner store?

With the bright colored door

Mama used to say

We’re outta milk

Go get some more

Now the door is gone

Just an empty parking lot

Last I heard,

That’s where someone got shot

 

Chorus:

For these streets

These empty streets

Of my hometown

People used to hustle

People used to bustle

Every now and then

Someone would tussle

Can this be the place ….

My hometown

Where I grew up?

 

Break - guitar solo

 

This place used to have a vibe

People walkin’, people talkin’

This place was alive

It didn't survive

Don’t you know

Right over there

I made my first dollar

I kissed my first girl

 

For these streets

These empty streets

Of my hometown

 

Break - harmonica solo

 

People used to hustle

People used to bustle

Every now and then

Someone would tussle

Can this be the place ….

My hometown

Where I grew up?

 

Now a ghost town through and through

Most of the families moved on

I guess I did too

 

Chorus:

For these streets

These empty streets

Of my hometown ....

 

 

From Lawman: Just a progression I have been playing with looking to see where we can take it!
