RPM 2018: Day 04

Truckin’ along. Started a new tune called “Shangri-La”. Bare bones here, but I’ll put some time in today and tomorrow to bring it up to snuff. Traci Weingardt will be playing bass (and possibly singing some backups) on this track. Tomorrow, Anne Kay is coming over to put harmonies down on song #1, “Stay Up Later!”

Here are the lyrics I’ve got so far:

I don’t see you much anymore
but we’ve got money in the bank
i see your posts from time to time
got the Zuckerburg to thank

tell me was there just one point
or dots across a line
that led you to your Shangri-La
can’t remember? fine

seems like something’s changed
you got your act together
like a lion on the open range
the bright suns shine on you in verse…

friendly face familiar crowd
we go about our days
i can’t help but notice
you’ve gone a different way

doubt it was a single point
but variations over time
how you got to where you are
kickin’ back sublime

seems like it’s all changed
you got your act together
like a lion on the open range
eons past a broken curse…

[BRIDGE]

seems like it’s all changed
you got your act together
like a lion on an open range
the bright suns shine on you in verse

seems like something’s changed
you got your act together
like a lion on an open range
eons past a broken curse…
