Greetings, Deceiving, and Goodbye

Liner Notes: 

The story of a love affair


First she bats her lashes
Her eyes are just for you
Then she licks her upper lip
Just like striippers do
Then she slips a finger
Into a crease in your jeans
Lighting up the pleasure zone in your brain
By simply touching your knee

Love is a three stage rocket
Pulls us out of our socket
Kick yourself wonder why
Its always greetings, deceiving, and goodbye

Later you receive a phone call
Telling you she will be late
Saying dont bother to wait up for me
You tell her you will wait
When she arrives in the morning
With her blouse askew
You ask where have you been all night
She anwers Whats it to you

Repeat chorus

Six guys are in your apartment
Packing up all of her stuff
When you get in their way
They rough you up
They kick you till you are uconscious
Then strip the room til it is bare
When you get up on your feet again
Nothing is left of her there

Repeat chorus

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


An end of set song ;). or you’d start fights prime 3rd drink fighting time Smile

By number six they’re all, what the heck - go for it...

Yikes! Now THAT'S a downer. Love it, though. GREAT lyrical story. I had a little burst of creativity this morning and one of the songs (which I won't get around to completing and posting until tomorrow has a similar theme--I'm calling it '"I Love You", She Lied'). I ended up completing the other one--kind of a country gospel tune and it is uploading now. Anyway...fantastic, fantastic vocal on this one, Bill--especially that chorus. I think this one is my new favorite!

Great title, lots of resignated observation in it, which is translated in the way you sing. Sad song- yet very likable.

Looking at the opening verse is quite visual. The strong chorus sums it up nicely. Getting the "you don't own me" crap in the second verse. The last section is the nail in the coffin. I think my dad would have liked your new album stuff as these kinds of stories is something he liked. I think this a good example of what your newest album is all about. Great job on this Bill. I'm ready for the audio now...hold. Guitar intro...vocals...can clearly understand the lyrics...chorus now...some guitar fills now...second verse...yes girl, where you been all night, she answers, what's it to is a three-stage rocket. Good vocals and tone of voice...suits these lyrics perfectly. Last section is a three-stage wonder why...and goodbye. Fade out...very nice Bill. Quite excellent actually.

A sad one for sure...well-told story with many descriptions that cut to the core. "Nothing is left of her there." Emotional, vulnerable vocal...especially in the chorus. And lovely guitar work...soft and subtle...for this love story that's come and gone.

This is good and gets better every listen. Great chorus well delivered. Nice story, you nailed it.
