Evolution of a Song-Week Eight

(Subway ride over the Manhattan Bridge-blurry but beautiful)

Week Eight-"Want You to See"

Week eight, feeling great! This week's song, was one that took a little more time and a lot more patience. (Unfortunately it's not one of my greatest virtues but I am being forced to learn). I had the first verse for quite a while and just couldn't find the rest of the song-lyrics, chorus, melody etc. But it was a verse that I kept going back to and trying to flush out. I decided that this was the week for me to do that-to finish this song.

So, I played and played and then the chorus was born. I liked the descending chromatic end of it and the lyrics just seemed to fit. It's funny how sometimes, a song can start out as one thing and end up as a totally different thing.

The first verse I wrote after a break-up and it meant something so different. But then when the chorus was attached to it, the whole song took on a different meaning and I just went with it. Another virtue at practice-going with the flow. (Is that a virtue? Well, it should be)

After working on the lyrics for the verses, "Want You Β to See" is here. Ready for your listening pleasure. So, you know what to do! Get on the list to hear it, and to hear the other seven songs...Oh my Gosh, I almost have a whole new album!:)

So excited to share this musical journey/adventure/project with you. As always, I love hearing your feedback so please let me know what you think!

All my listening love,

Dana
