About "Anyway..."

So I was locked in the broom-cupboard, checking out some old songs that need recording.

I’d just picked one and then suddenly this thing came out of nowehere. It started with one of those guitarist doodles that other musicians love so much at rehearsals.

That doodle became the intro to this. I just started singing and before I knew it I had two verses.

I checked it out with Madame La Muse, she liked it, so I wrote the bridge and recorded it.

It was done live with an acoustic but no click. It would have done like that, but I felt it was missing something. I could hear an organ part, mebbe. This isn’t it really, but it’s as close as I could get…

For me, this is very rough around the edges. Some of the vocal performance could be improved, the guitar part isn’t set in stone yet, and the organ, well the organ had trouble playing in time with the guitar not figured out! But I like the vibe, and I wouldn’t be able to repeat it or improve on it without some weeks of learning/rehearsing.

So as it is, with me fingers crossed, I think this version’s good enough for something that didn’t exist this morning.


Anyway… - A A J Russe

If I back off
And shut my mouth
For a moment or two
And let you be
Let you think
Would you find me
Anyway…

Some folks read
Some folks write
Some folks sing, stay up all night
If I go back
To the start
Would you find me
Anyway…

Enthusiastic as I am
Often forget you understand
Please forgive how I behave
Need you to find me
Anyway…

Enthusiastic as I am
Often forget you understand
Please forgive how I behave
Need you to find me
Anyway…

If I back off
And shut my mouth
For a moment or two
And let you be
Let you think
Would you find me
Anyway…

Could you find me
Anyway…
