Seven Trees, Five Bikes, Three People, One Cat

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I felt like I needed to write a song before bed. @Adnama17 & @tcelliott song *23986 'More Trees Than People inspired me to count the trees on our humble 1/4 lot (seven) in the city to the three people that live in the house. I also occasionally point out that we have five bikes and one car. So, a few more list items, rhymes, open chord shapes up the neck and there ya go, its another song.

Lyrics:

Seven Trees, Five Bikes, Three People, One Cat

Seven trees, five bikes, three people, one cat
Thats what we have
Doesn’t count the mats
Doesn’t count how we feel about that

Seven bird feeders, five tables, three people, one driveway
Thats what we have enough of
Doesn’t count the love
Doesn’t count how we feel today

Seven vents, five sinks, three people, one car
Thats what we have been
Doesn’t count the experience
Doesn’t count how far

Seven acoustics, five electrics, three people, one firepit
Thats what we have played
Doesn’t count the days
Doesn’t count years since 1988

Seven trees, five bikes, three people, one cat
Thats what we have enough of
Doesn’t count the love
Doesn’t count all that we have had



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Wow, the twelve-string guitar sounds absolutely gorgeous here - sparkling! I like the sentiment too, although your balance of bikes-to-cats is a little off Wink

I really like the guitar playing and the 7 3 5 1... very prime. It sounds like there's a deeper cabalistic meaning to it. Probably not, eh?

Awwwwwww! Glad we could inspire you!
And such truth! We focus so incorrectly. Love that 12 string!

I like the sentiment in this song. And the guitar playing is very interesting and sounds lovely. The idea of writing a song with numbers as kind of a base is cool and fun!

This is a really beautiful and lovingly, quietly powerful song. The guitar has a great ringing quality to it. Good one!
