The Bottom of the Sea WFX
The Bottom of the Sea WFXI wrote the lyrics and played the guitar and Mr. Sickly teamed with me for the music comp and played the uke like a champ. This was conceived summer of 07 or 08 I believe, and it always makes me think of the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean movie. :) Hope you like it! This version is a beautiful recording and mix by F R Sickly when we were a 2 man band called Dick and Jane. I recently added the beginning effects, the undersea creaking and squeezebox, and am working on a heartbeat and seagulls as well. Lyrics: It's bitter and it's cold, it's broken down and old Every splintered thing you own you never replaced with gold and I'm just another thing that falls apart in your hands Bitter tears, and dust, and rust, and When I feel your head rest gentle on my chest I can't feel your love You're just another drop of rain on my umbrella Cause I've got all these walls up, all these walls up I think of other kisses, romances I've been missing Honey that ain't love, lover that ain't love If you're looking for me my heart is waiting At the bottom of the sea hoping and praying That you'll lose your taste for me and set me free Like a mermaid sweet, sweet sailor Round and round we go and where we're stopping No one even knows their mouths are dropping I'm tired of the flight nothing left in me To get me through tonight's long journey And the squeeze box in the freezer proves that nothing ever changes We're just in deeper now, much, much deeper If you're looking for me my heart;s residing At the bottom of the sea hoping and hiding That you'll lose your taste for me and set me free Like a mermaid sweet, sweet sailor Come, come now let's call it over You want to keep what isn't yours A hug and kiss goodbye keep it civil I don't want to be here anymore Now I don't want to boast, this may sound crazy But Davy Jones' ghost, he ain't got nothing on me I feel like a buffoon for so many moons I've been marooned, marooned, marooned, marooned Now don't keep me on land you know I'm bound to shrivel I don't understand all your foolish drivel Whatever you have planned I will hold your hand just not as my man Not as my man, not as my man, not as my man, not as my man, not as my man, not as my man Art work Rae McAlister 2015

And Then Some
And Then SomeWritten, performed, and recorded by Rae Mc Alister for my one and only. Soft tones and lots of harmony makes this love song soothing. This became our saying to each other since after our wedding. The priest said,"Til death do you part," and we leaned in to each other saying,"and then some."

Tall TalesA eulogy to a kind hearted fireball who came around just when I needed it the most, and only stayed long enough to make all the difference. Mr. John Carter. Writing, piano, and vocals by yours truly. See the video @ http://youtu.be/HdXfSSWZU40 and visit me on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/cdarae
Forever NowThe past haunts us, even if we tuck it in a nice container in a deep dark closet of our subconscious. After tossing too much in our chests and storage it begins to surface in unmanageable ways. This song is about facing the fears that have been lurking in the shadows, taking them out, looking at them, and setting them free. Inspired by my recent EMDR and PTSD. Don't forget your free download! If you enjoy the music please find me at https://www.facebook.com/raemcalister/?fref=ts and send me a message!!! Love all
MistressHelp yourself to a free download! Written long, long ago and highly requested I decided to dust this one off and make a recording for my friendos. Especially with Denae in mind. Love you sister! <3
