Bring Your Daydreams To Me

Uploaded .

New one from me. It’s ended up as a bit of a “crying into yer beer at Bob’s Country Bunker” sort of song lol…

I’ve been sat on these lyrics in some form or another for absolutely years. I first wrote them one very dark night a few years after my first marriage ended.

I’ve written a song around them two or three times before, but I wrote a new one yesterday.

The recording is a bit of a first for me. I told myself this morning that I was going to record a complete song in one day… and I’ve managed it. Usually I would have replaced a few of the parts that I don’t like, but I’m going to pretend they’re not there instead!

Bring Your Daydreams To Me - A A J Russe

Write down the names
Of the things that you wanted
Cross out the ones you’ve received
Those that are left
Highlight as daydreams
Bring your daydreams to me

Now draw up a list
Of the hurts you have suffered
Especially the ones that won’t heal
Make a note of the times
That you needed comfort
Then bring your daydreams to me

I can’t be everything
Don’t fool yourself that I can
But just this once
I can bear anything
Bring your daydreams to me

I could sit and chill with your music all day, it's quite relaxing and thoughtful. Much respect over here, lovin the smooth blues-y, folk-y sounds. Very very much so. And the stories you tell are impeccable, I can feel the emotion. You're very real. Keep it up!

Just enjoyed rolling through your 5 "Latest Music" tracks. You have a very nice sound. Remind me of a guy I used to play coffee house gigs with, Rick Walker. Nice work mate. :) And thanks so much for all of the kind comments on my tracks. Really encouraging to hear fellow musicians say such positive things.

Big applause Andrew, great lyrics, almost therapeutical. The music is giving the right accent on the lyrics, totally fitting! (And I am relieved you came over the shock and relaxed when you heard my music! :-) I had a big smile seeing your comment! Roeleke

Guest said

What can one say but, wow! This also has an Hank Williams feel in parts. The emotion of it. Seemed to be rather common in country music in his time. Gospel..soul..blues. You are quite the alchemist. This one goes on the space station with me too. :)

Your best song so far - IMO. And all the others were great too. But this one has that wonderful blues-gospel feel that grips you from the very first note. I'll listen to this song a lot more times, no doubt about that.
