.Posted in Whisky
The story of my father. Didn't work trying to state facts, it sounded too whiney, so I turned the lyrics into the 1st person to tell a story. A selfish arrogant man who's demons were his masters. When push came to shove the bottle always won. Demo here -: https://soundcloud.com/ijay_x/whisky Whisky Vs.1 I started young, early in the day I tried to keep up with all of my friends It turned out they weren't friends anyway I still tried to keep up When no-one was coming out to play Just the smell of a bottle of Bells was enough to driver me insane. Chorus You can break my heart I'm not a quick fix You can take my cash I can earn it back You can push me hard I can push back If you take my Whisky I can't make that If you take my Whisky I can't make that Vs 2 What did I do today My friends have all gone away My life has gone south It's not even my fault So I drink my days away Lonely and Isolated tied to my past All of my excuses are at the bottom of a glass It takes my loneliness away. Bridge Repeat Chorus

"I'm Not Dead Yet" is my November 2017 song. This song was written about  my own feelings, as well as for those that are not willing to let go of dreams. For those that keep pushing on no matter how hard it is.   [url]https://www.reverbnation.com/silverbeat/song/28933076-im-not-dead-yet[/url]   Happy Christmas, Terry   I feel like I've been running out of time It's a feeling I've had so very long I've been on this road for a dream of mine  It's never faded, it's just as strong There's a need in my heart that seems to grow With each passing day I come to know Well I'm not so sure if I'll ever reach the top But I'm Sure I'm never gonna stop.    Chorus   Some say, what the use in trying For what I'll Probable never get I say, I'll try until I die And I'm not dead yet    I trust in my own reason to believe And I believe in time I will Succeed I'm just not so sure when that day will be I'm only curteen it's what I need  Repeat Chorus   Work my fingers to the bone With pain I scream I work my fingers to the bone For more than just a dream

.Posted in I Still Haven't Found What I Need
My October 2017 song, "I Still Haven't Found What I Need" was inspired by a conversation I had with my sister in law, about the Rolling Stones. In short, I told her that my Favorite Rollings Stones song was "It's Only Rock N Roll". She said her's was "You Can't Always Get What You Want". That's all it took. I started thinking about my own wants and needs. https://www.reverbnation.com/silverbeat/song/28791467-i-still-havent-found-what-need Cheers, Terry I did the math - I read the books I kept myself clear - of teachers dirty looks I formed my answers - that turned out right From long hard studies - of countless nights I still haven't found what I need I played the game - I paid my dues I kept beliefs that - I wasn't gonna loss I fed my hunger - to never stop To fill my ego - and reach the top I still haven't found what I need I think I got what I thought I wanted Time and time again But I still haven't found what I need Yeah - I still haven't found what I need No - I still haven't found what I need I still haven't found what I need

I Felt The Sun Upon My Face (My February 2017 Song) I'm not sure where the lyric to this song came from, could be love gone wrong. Any way, It's written like it's a love song, but I think it's more about how I felt in the past about any thing that got my hopes up, only to have the rug pulled from under my feet. Being in the people business, it's not hard to have that happen more times than not. Or, it may be about 50% of the time, So it seems. https://www.reverbnation.com/silverbeat/song/27588574-i-felt-the-sun-upon-my-face Cheers, Terry Rock On!!! You have your secrets I have mine There'll be no pain If there's no Clues If there's no heart break We'll both be fine We'll both be fine If you so chose I felt the sun upon my face You said you thought you felt it to I looked, and failed to see a trace It's so dam hard to know what's true If there's no reason There's no heart The way is lost If there's no light I watched the sun set Right from the start Right from the start Day turned to night Why Tell me why you cried did you lie, or did your love just die

In my song writing, I'm a perfect rhymer and I'm working to step outside that box.  With that said, I honestly have a difficult time with your lyrics and would like to know if you've finished this song so I can hear what it sounds like.  I don't mean any offense by what I'm saying to you, but that I'm actually stuck in a box and you've written outside the box.
