Liner Notes: 

Amanda says: Co-write between myself and Steven Guiles, my bestest songwriting amigo Smile

This is a song from the band we have together, Future Kings Of Denmark (FKOD).

Amanda says: I wanted to write a positve lyric, and the GYAWS theme this last week was 'Easy'. Steven and I are both members of GYAWS, and so I thought, ok I'll write about how easy some friendships (or songwriting partnerships) are.

We've been working on it since Tuesday, and it is by no means finished. However, we are now happy to share the basic song here Smile

Amanda says: update Sept 14th - I am now just finally polishing up the lyrics, ready for a final mix and final production. As soon as I have the finished demo, I will post it here.

Lyrics: 

chorus
You are my side kick
My happy alter ego
You are my comrade
You're really no placebo
When we share a glass
The finest cappuccino
You are my best friend
You are my best amigo

v1
You're my best ever best friend
The one that holds me upright
When all I wanna do
Is fall over from fright

v2
I'd do anything to defend you
When you're in a corner
You're always there for me
I'm you're biggest supporter

pre ch
You're the best of the rest
You keep my corner free
You're the light in my shadow
I'm sure that you agree

chorus
You are my side kick
My happy alter ego
You are my comrade
You're really no placebo
When we share a glass
The finest cappuccino
You are my best friend
You are my best amigo

v3
No matter what is happening
We always share a laugh
I know when you are right
Cus you're my better half

v4
I love the way you think about
The stuff I can't abide
You listen to my jokes
Even when I'm fried

pre ch
You're the best of the rest
You keep my corner free
You're the light in my shadow
I'm sure that you agree

chorus
You are my side kick
My happy alter ego
You are my comrade
You're really no placebo
When we share a glass
The finest cappuccino
You are my best friend
You are my best amigo
You are my side kick
My happy alter ego
You are my comrade
You're really no placebo
When we share a glass
The finest cappuccino
You are my best friend
You are my best amigo

This is SUPER FUN, the two voices are wonderful and complement each other so well. Very good and I love the topic, it's so difficult to see songs about friendship that don't turn out corny and this certainly rocks

First, this is a powerful combination of songwriters. I think this news is awesome!

Next, the title of this song is fabulous...I like it already.

Looking at the lyrics....lovely chorus...I like it. v1 shows amigo always there when needed...very nice. v2 shows gratitude and commitment. pre-chorus does exactly what is expected...settings up the chorus. v3 is kind of a marriage kind of, don't know how to say it, my better half statement. v4 shows a friend indeed. Double chorus and out...very nice write. I'm ready for the audio now...hold. guitar intro...drums...sounds good...vocals now...sounds good...male voice now...nice combination of voices....sounds good...good guitars....can clearly understand the lyrics....vocalist change now...sounds great....very catch...you are the sidekick....you are my best friend....vocal change again...sounds great....good music...easy to listen to...you listen to my jokes...even when I'm fried....yourr the best of the rest....your the light in my shadow....chorus again...sounds great....catchy tune...good melody....drums and out. Yeah, this is an awesome demo, I like it very much. Great job by both!
