SEEKINGBand to Join, Piano.
I have to confess that I am totally new to music and that my music styles cover multiple genres and at times the songs themselves seem to overlap thematically and stylistically but I feel liberated not to be confined to the conventional. I am not sure how these songs will be perceived now that they are out , my wife tells me that they are " interesting" and that no matter what ,I will always be a good writer !!. I do not play music instruments, I have some basic knowledge of scales and a bit of music theory, most of my melodies were inspired by hitting the piano keys till something happened and became my vocal melody at some point later,I use Yamaha QY 100 Music Sequencer for chord progressions and interesting intro's, I record all my songs in the living room past midnight when it is quite all around , I am sure you will find some noise that sneaked through in some songs. I don't have experience collaborating with others, had no gigs in my past,tried open mic's but always felt out of place,been always a band of one to a crowd of one but would like to share and get some feedback . I have to say from the outset that though the mood that permeates my songs is on the dark side it is not necessarily autobiographical but I gravitate to it by an unexplained pull, I relish inhabiting a state of mind that consumes and is sustained by raw emotions that transcend any narrative, I seek emotional catharsis that feeds on lyrics and harmony that are totally fictional but seem familiar nevertheless and indeed very welcome. And finally I would ask you to keep the curser over the song play button while the song is on so you can read my lyrics if my delivery is not up to par.Thank you.

Empty Year: 2016 Genre: Pop
I know you want a man that you will understand I know you came for love I heard you had a plan and I know you changed your name cause they call you now suzanne and I heard you looked every where I saw your footsteps on the sand I heard you crossed the ocean I heard you reached Japan I heard you met a man I heard that you were fine But now you‘ve empty hands Now you‘ve empty hands. I heard you this morning I know the song that you sang the bird that flew away the night (sky) that turned black And I heard the years pass you by and I heard your footsteps all night and you learnt to sway to the song of love I saw when love lent you a hand and I heard this from the stars above that you were a beauty from the start that your heart beating was some work of art that your whole existence was a trick ten parts and the rest was a promise one part the rest was a promise one part.

I walked so far I followed a shooting star I can hear your guitar so tell me where you are cause I know your rules and I’ll play along the fool that you really loved me but I was cruel so let me touch your face come love to my place come love to my space come back to me you seem unsure you stare at the floor I talk of the sky above but your eyes kept at the door then you went away I remember it was May I remember you were happy I remember you say You want to leave this land you want a different plan you want a different brand you want me no more.

don't go away please stay don’t be so sad..so mad and I’ll obey what ever you say just don't go away..don't go then You turn me around you tell me sit down cause there’s something on your mind..your mind you said “don’t be afraid” of the things that you’ll say that we’ll always be friends.. but I know I’ll see you no more…no more I looked at your face I wiped all the tears Forgot all my fears..my fears then you held up my hand you said you don't understand but this is the end…the end then you walked to the door you my favorite of all and soon you were gone..gone then I let all the tears bring back all those years but this time I know I’ll see you no more…no more
Eric Year: 2016 Genre: Pop
I, I can't breath I, I can’t speak can you hear my prayer do you hear what I say You must obey and do what I say said the cop on the scene on the dead man last day So a jury took a stand and they came up with a plan that if the cop was white for sure he was right and so they cleared him because they can I feel sorry I feel shame that a black’s life is still a game cause I thought we were through with this ugly game So here we go again with the sorrow and the pain that some still would not call it by it’s name Yes racists are still here this man’s death made it clear Cause no matter how advanced we’re still trapped in the past and I see no end in sight. I ‘m hopeful and I ‘m not that this door will soon be shut that peace will soon prevail but I ‘ll give it as much as I got and yes I still have my doubts that some will ever fight when they are hiding in but should be with us out So let’s all stand tall and let’s answer this higher call cause there are people in despair they are here and every where So come join us and show you care.

I wish I can give when the world would not see I wish I could forgive and at last be free I wish I could live and forget destiny I wish It is past twelve and I am back me all me I wish I can be half the man I used to be I wish I have the key to this life mystery I wish I could play and not care if I win I wish I could pray and not because of a sin I wish I could share and mean it truly from within I wish I could stare and not break you so I win I wish I can be half the man I used to be I wish I have the key to this life mystery I wish I can sing neither of you or the stars I wish to spread my wings and fly far so far I wish to stop this gin and let go of the blues I wish to let you in and let go of those old shoes I wish I can be half the man I used to be I wish I have the key to this life mystery
