I Do

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Wow! 3 hours left for 50/90?! Man that went by fast. This was my contribution to the Speak Into My Good Eye 24 hour songwriting challenge. Had electric guitars in there but took em out. Sounded better.

Lyrics: 

I never met my daddy
So i swore upon his soul
That I would live forever
And never grow old

Nothing ever changing
Serene and even keeled
Comfortable numb
With an occasional feel

And if you ask me if I feel OK
I do
And if you ask me if I alright
I do
Don't care bout' where I've been
Shed those days like forgiven sin
My sentimental friend
I do

Violently optimistic
Un-tethered to this life
Daily affirmation
"Am I'm the blade of the knife"

And if you ask me if I feel OK
I do
And if you ask me if I alright
I do
Don't care bout' where I've been
Shed those days like forgiven sin
My sentimental friend
I do

Without heart and galvanized
Tinman I can relate
On the bright side, without heart
There's nothing to love or hate

I dooooo

Love this...so head bouncing and foot tapping. "Violently optimistic" - brilliant! The pauses and the beat and the vocals are spot on. Love it! Very tight. And the production rocks as well. Give rose

Wonderful lyrics!

That chorus is everything .. I wanted another one or two of the chorus at the end of the song ... I just kept listening to that part over and over ... The melody and the way you draw out each "I do" ... Sooo good ... And I also like your phrasing of "forgiven sin" ... Just great ... this goodness belongs on the radio ... Love everything about this ... Wonderful job!
