Liner Notes: 

Sunday Skirmish 9/28/2019 "We Are Family"

Just noticed I blew my own bridge on my demo...lol



We are family

Well, I got my dog and my cats
I got my brother here with me facts
We are family
We are family

Sometimes I spend my time alone
Something's need to be left away from home
Like work why bring it home?
Most likely I'll be alone
But I play the game with the phone
I can tell when you're stoned
She asked me if I wanted a drone
I said, what the hell for? Holmes


I want her in my family
We are family
However, we're not that close
You never knows
But my cats don't ask much of me
Usually it's mostly about the feed
I take care of the house and mop the floors
She says I knows and that's what I adores


Having a nice family Sunday afternoon
Got some rock-a-billy on the TV
Just me my cats my dogs and brother
Isn't the packers on today?
The last line of my song is we are family

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

Great look into your world! Nice musiic and skirmish!

There is something endearing about your performance here. I like that you're being positive (which I suspect will be a common theme or this prompt.) And I like that you threw in a "she" that isn't quite defined. A hint of uneasiness in an otherwise fulfilling song about family.

Nice picture song. Tells a real life for most people. Strong guitar keeps it moving on! I agree with TC it is endearing! It does have some undertones!

This feels wonderfully intimate and honest. There is a wonderfully candid feeling in your vocal delivery.

It has this on and on feeling with a bit of melancholy, maybe because of the pets or the grand children in the end. It's a fine home picture.

Hey Jerry, my friend you did an awesome job on your new song I like it bro. Your lyrics sounds excellent. Your singing sounds awesome.

The slightly disconnected, almost rambling lyrics remind me a bit of REM. There's something very every-day about them that's rather endearing. Nice one
