Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

First song out of the gate! It took a few days but I finished it up. Trying out some drum loops to inspire a different way of writing for me. I am hoping to use some English idioms to generate songs for a few this time. It's a rich field to harvest from! Recorded in Garage Band with a drum loop, me on guitar and vocals.

Lyrics: 

Baby, you're talking and I'm hearing what I want.
Every little bitty word you say is music washing over me (may)
You may just be my sliver tongue devil

The things you say make a grown woman sigh
But I can't tell if it's the truth or a lie
Boy you got me head over heels and I feel like I am losing my mind.
I gotta find a way to see if all this is right.

But you know that actions speak louder than words
You better find a way to make sure you are heard
Don't sit there talking, waiting on your day to come
If you got a train to catch, boy you'd better run.

The day is coming. I'm gotta find my way.
I gonna do what I'm gonna do, it won't matter what you say.
You only be my silver tongued devil.

The things you say make a grown woman sigh
But I'll know if it's the truth or a lie
Boy you got me head over heels and I feel like I am losing my mind.
But I found a way to see if this is right.

Baby, you're talking and I'm hearing what I want.
Every little bitty word you say is music washing over me (may)
You may just be my sliver tongue devil

the contrast between your soaring vocal and earthy rhythms is addictive, this is a keeper. and it gets even better as it goes along. by the way, you should answer comments on the commenters soundboard. theyare not likely to see them if you post here.

Quite nice!
Great rhythm to this from your drum loop and the way you're doing things with your guitar.
Awesome vocals - I dig the melody choices you made and your voice delivers them soulfully - a great tone. Especially liking the ending around 2:45...that's some good stuff!

Cool song! Your vocals are soooo good and the acoustic works nicely on the song to give it an extra touch over the beat. Enjoyable listen!

The drum loop and acoustic guitar are playing together really nicely here! And once again, your vocal delivery is just, like, perfect. So expressive, great intuition for pitch and melody... really excited to see what else you create this summer!

Nice rocking song with great vocals. I like the blues inflections in your singing and you have a really good voice.

Outstanding vocals and a really well written song. So catchy, and "silver tongue devil is a great hook. Enjoyed this one a lot.

Well told rockin' blues. The break at the end is very cool. I like this one.

Wowza. Your vocals have a sultry Nancy Sinatra vibe which works oh so well.

This is really well done. I like the ease of the music. It's very natural... organic. And I love that the perspective is of someone who knows they're probably being lead on and is not quite ready to let go.
