Liner Notes: 

This is the song to introduce me.

Corey: I found this lyric really captivating... An introduction to oneself without sounding boastful and arrogant. I knew I had to put something to this plus I needed to find a place for the "Beatles Flutes" sound I discovered in my newly acquired Mellotron plugin.

A perfect match Smile

Lyrics: 

I'm the Guy

Let me introduce myself , as I take the stage
Not in my first flush of youth, don't ask me my age
There's a creative beat in my heart, an eye for the original
I live for my greatest dream, where my works of art are wonderful

I'm the guy, with the artistic eye
I wield my pen like a sword
Watch the words fly
Don't get bored
and I'm the guy, who refuses to lie
Who tells the truth
is self assured
and not afraid to cry

Don't sound a fancy fanfare, i don't like the fuss
Like to fill my life with peace, there's no need to rush
There's a beautiful glint in my eye, when I'm allowed to imagine
I am a real simple guy, who is full of love and compassion

I'm the guy, with the artistic eye
I wield my pen like a sword
Watch the words fly
Don't get bored
and I'm the guy, who refuses to lie
Who tells the truth
is self assured
and not afraid to cry

No no no
I'm no hero
I've lived my life scared
So so so
I'm no weirdo
When my heart is bared

I'm the guy, with the artistic eye
I wield my pen like a sword
Watch the words fly
Don't get bored
and I'm the guy, who refuses to lie
Who tells the truth
is self assured
and not afraid to cry

Great lyrics and a good introduction to the 'guy with the artistic eye'.

I can relate to this, as I imagine many here can.

This is like the theme music for all the... DEFINITELY-NOT-WEIRDOS here. ROFL

Keep up the good work!

What a great chorus "I'm the guy, with the artistic eye, I wield my pen like a sword" a great image of us songwriters as knights fighting the enemy of our inner voices. I've got some musical ideas for your lyric. Would you mind if I give it a go?

Great statement of purpose. I really like the "fancy fanfare" and "beautiful glint"!

Great collaboration. Loved the lyrics and then listening to Corey’s musical interpretation was a delight. You can hear the Beatles influence in the sounds, it just adds to a fantastic song. Great work.
