Creative Brief

Well here's another Lyric - not quite finished - it needs another couple of verses but I think it has a strong chorus with a good hook and it'd be a shame not to try to get it out there!

I'm thinking country blues here.

I will try to lay down an a cappella vocal later this evening to give you all a clue on the melody and phrasing I have in mind.

Once again it needs everything people!


Third Verse added....


The Road I Ride



When I was a young man, I didn’t look that far ahead

My road was straight and long, with a million miles to tread

I could run forever and the lights were on green 

And all I needed was a bike and gasoline....



Never had me company, ‘cept the sunshine and the rain

Just running wild and free – sometimes pleasure leads to pain

Cheap diner in a motel town, I thought I’d seen it all before

But my whole life changed when you walked in through that door



Girl my eyes were opened and my soul was enslaved

Well my spirit was broken, my heart was in chains

And baby I can’t fight this - no matter what I do........

I know the road I ride is gonna lead me back to you



And now life’s highway, is so full of twists and turns

Well every corner, is just another lesson learned

Can't ever seem to slow me down - it don't matter how I try

Got a hunger only you can satisfy...



Now my eyes are open but my soul is enslaved

And though my spirit ain’t broken, my heart is in chains

And baby I can’t fight this - no matter what I do........

I know the road I ride is gonna lead me back to you



Repeat Chorus to end
