Somewhere Beyond The Bridge

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Day 5 prompt from the Fearless Songwriter week challenge: 'Beyond The Bridge'. Also with a secondary structural prompt to use a dominant 7th chord. I was stuck lyrically being pulled in many directions at once. So I got out the electric guitar and started bashing the chord progression of Eb D7 and B. Then added shakers, spoons, and bass. For lyrics all I could think of for the vocal was repetition, and a list of rhyme sets for bodies of water I have crossed via bridge. It feels like too much and I already hit my time limit on this one so FAWM on.

Lyrics:

OK, this is weird. I had a 50/90 dream last night that I was searching through your songs for one particular one that had the magical power to unlock part of a secret road to Mexico (!?) and as I slept you were writing this song about crossing bridges and rivers...

Anyway, I like the pulsing percussion here! There's a strange atmosphere to this that is very enjoyable!
