Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

had to do this for a challenge elsewhere. otherwise i would have had a break. my voice is shot (just a cold but the throat is rough) so i threw every instrument i could find at it to mask that loss.

Lyrics: 

Its not what you think

Its not what you think
Youve go the wrong idea
Im not what you think i am
Its just your fear

My looking glass theory
My personality developed
This is my learning process
My values enveloped

I am what i am
You are what you are
You’ve not seen the best of me
Not by far

I am what i am
You are what you are
You’ve not seen the best of me
Not by far

My character shaped
By perception heightened
Moving forward
To be so enlightened

My personality shaped
By nature or nurture
Take responsibility
Always a searcher

I am what i am
You are what you are
You’ve not seen the best of me
Not by far
I am what i am
You are what you are
You’ve not seen the best of me
Not by far

It may be all real
But its more likely perception
This view that you hold
Is pure misconception

Its the finer points that matter
I hope they are right
If its so
We have a future thats bright

I am what i am
You are what you are
You’ve not seen the best of me
Not by far
I am what i am
You are what you are
You’ve not seen the best of me
Not by far

love that organ. your dyamics remind me a bit of pink floyd. the chorus is magnificent. beig the atron saint of broken voices that i am, i think your voice souds in fine condition. better yet, it bends so well with the arrangement

fantastic organ sound, i love the glissando swoops down. i like your delivery too, rough voice included, kind of understated yet very big feel at the same time. nice one Smile

Love the organ. all the instruments thrown in sounds great, as the lyrics embark on their attempt to persuade.

Well as someone who has also done this particular prompt challenge it was of extra interest. I love the Hammond! I put Hammond on almost all of my songs. It’s such a great sound. I like the message in this of being yourself.
