Liner Notes: 

UPDATE: Please listen and leave comments on the beautiful demo by Susan Cantey:

I wrote this as a slow smokey bluesy song in my head but am open to ideas from collaborator.

Written thinking about a friend - her husband died acutely and unexpectedly after a brief illness when she was 6 months pregnant with their first child.

Lyrics: 

RUST and BLUE

V1
fireworks
once filled my heart
passionate explosions
from dawn through dark
bright ruby reds
and brilliant golds
sparked love songs
so sweet and bold

PC1
bright ruby reds
and brilliant golds....

C1
but now my heart is growing old
I am missing you....
and my heart is growing cold
I am wanting you....
oh my heart is aching so
now here without you....
so my heart is not sweet and bold
it is rust and blue

yeah this heart is not sweet and bold
it is rust and blue

V2
symphonies
once filled my soul
with moving cadenzas
both high and low
bright arpeggios
on colorful chords
played love songs
richly adorned

bright arpeggios
on colorful chords

C2
but now my soul is growing old
I am missing you....
and my soul is growing cold
I am wanting you....
oh my soul is aching so
now here without you....
so my soul is not richly adorned
it is rust and blue

yeah this soul is not richly adorned
it is rust and blue

OUTRO
oh this heart is not sweet and bold
it is rust and blue... ooo...oo...

yeah this soul is not richly adorned
it is rust and blue....ooo ...oo..

rust and blue...ooo...

rust and blue...ooo..ooo..oo

rust and blue



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

Gosh, so many vivid images burn through my brain! The longing is so powerful. Excellent!

"Rust and blue" - what a terrific image. The song is deeply sad and moving; a slow blues version would be great, and I hope to be able to hear that some day. @Susan Cantey, go for it!

Great title. Has a nice rolling on the edge flow! I hear it darkish, not blues but smokey bar emotional stuff.
