My Computer Kept Crashing…

My computer kept stopping with a “system overload” error as I was trying to record the acoustic guitar part.  My Macbook Pro is old but mighty (for a while longer I hope!). I changed some parameters and finished the track. Then, listened back. Horrible. “This sucks, @#$%! it” and I closed Logic (recording software). 

Then I sat there and thought of all the advice I give my kids… “It’s supposed to be hard, that’s how you learn” “It’s always darkest before dawn” – and lots of other supposed wisdom. So, I shook my head and re-opened the song. “I’m going to dive deeper and find this damn song” – An hour later I found it. The perfect vibe for the song – something that has eluded me for years. I may have had a little breakthrough.

So, here it is –  the unreleased song of the month: “Let Me In”

“Somewhere” Lyrics

I’m drivin’ somewhere
And you’re cryin’ somewhere
And if time brings us together
We’ll make it through another day

Well it’s just a mad race
And there is no finish line
Yes, you’re in a mad race
And there is no medal in the first place

I’ll never want
To leave you all alone
I’ll be right next to you
Out there – somewhere

You might be, killing yourself
Trying to achieve a perfect day
Reaching for that oasis
Only to find a wicked mirage

I think the fences that we build
For our own security
Keep out the people who
Who we need the most
