Liner Notes: 

Liz says: Marthie suggested a song about the secret life of musicians and told me one of her secrets - so I wrote some lyrics that include her secret and she created this music to bring them to life!

Lyrics: 

the secret life of musicians
kahlo2013
V1
they have slept through snooze alarms
they have found holes in underwear
they have sipped from paper cups
they have learned the hard truth
that some never care

they have cleaned up animal messes
they have cut their own toenails
they have found an ugly blemish
they have regretted mistakes
left by tell-tale trails

C
rock stars and divas
virtuosos and composers
maestros and masters
prodigies and promoters
they are really not
that different
than you

yeah...it may not be what
you envisioned ....
the secret life of
musicians

V2
they have forgotten notes or words
they have envied the work of others
they have felt fear of anxiety
they have said the wrong things
even to their mothers

they have cried themselves to sleep
they have questioned their ambition
they have felt painfully lonely
they have been sad or angry
due to bad decisions

C
rock stars and divas
virtuosos and composers
maestros and masters
prodigies and promoters
they are really not
that different
than you

yeah...it may not be what
you envisioned .....
the secret life of
musicians

B
we often look at their lives with awe
we sometimes think they have it all
but they are people just like us
well... except for their fame,
money, and tour bus...

C
rock stars and divas
virtuosos and composers
maestros and masters
prodigies and promoters
they are really not
that different
than you

yeah...it may not be what
you envisioned ......
the secret life of
musicians

I'd hoped I could hear this one and of course it is fantastic! Prime stuff you two!

Yes, I do love the lower register parts the most, although it’s all good! So musical theatre - I can see Liza on stage.

Great collaboration....I think that this could also be the secret life of politicians, of religious leaders, of ......anyone who seems to have fame, power, money or influence.

Love the lyrics humor balanced with wisdom and the piano blends so nicely with your vocal performance on this.

I really liked the lyrics when I first read them. This music is definitely not what I expected. Very James Bond. I mean I'm picturing a James Bond trippy opening sequence. It has smoke and silhouettes and the works, and I'm not a visual person. So great collaboration! Now lets all go out and get a license to kill!
