Podcast #45 – You’re Right

I keep looking at this song sideways. I challenged myself to write with these different rhythms and I’m pretty sure I hate this particle one. Haha! The prompt was “break the shackle” and there was so much I could write about shackles, freedom, and such but, at this point, I’m being obstinate. If the prompt is one thing, all of a sudden, I don’t want to write about that. I’m being difficult which makes the whole process more difficult. Writing, re-writing, banging my head against the desk 🙂 So, the song ended up being about always facing new territory while being with someone who is your complete opposite but perfect compliment. Never a dull moment. But, I think the song is a little strange ..who knows? You may get something interesting out of it. If you do, I’d be interested to know what that is. Please, write me.

Only 7 more weeks of podcasts and only 6 more to write for me. Wow! Then, I sit down and start writing for the new album. Yay! And, as luck would have it, I’m feeling very boosted and inspired after spending a wonderful weekend at the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival (basically, songwriter heaven in the Texas hill country). It was such an affirming experience. I played a total of 7 times and, each audience was incredible. I also had the pleasure of hearing so many gifted songwriters…my mind is blown. Here I am pictured with Tom Meny, Shannon Lee and Diana Corcoran.

You’re Right 
On a scale of one to ten
Everything I feel
On an upward trend
Tell me if it’s real
Is the sky above my head
Cause I know I took a hit
It hurts just to admit it

And all I know
Is stars are spinning around my head
Touch and everything is go
It might have started when you said
You’re right, you’re right
We’re never gonna be the same
You’re right, you’re right
But that’s why I love you anyway

Am I less or greater than
The choices that I make
Infinite or bound
to make the same mistake
Can the sum of all my parts
Break the shackle and the chain
Of events and/or happenstance

All I know
Is stars are spinning around my head
Touch and every thing is go
It might have started when you said
You’re right, you’re right
We’re never gonna be the same
You’re right, you’re right
But that’s why I love you anyway

Kind and calm and good and patient
Love, desire and inspiration
More than I could ever hope to find

All I know
Is stars are spinning around my head
Touch and every thing is go
It might have started when you said
You’re right, you’re right
We’re never gonna be the same
You’re right, you’re right
But that’s why I love you anyway
