You need to see the sky

Keith Landry

So I dropped the guitar into DADGAD tuning for the first time, threw a capo on the third fret, rifled off something nice, and sent it to Movement to Contact for his contribution, got it back, did some mixing…

Here is the result.

YOU NEED TO SEE THE SKY

Baby where’re you going
In such a hurry
Slow down and feel the grass between your toes
Once in a while
There’s a cool wind blowing
Set your satchel full of worries down
Come a little closer
Let me see you smile

Baby I’ve been trying
To capture your attention
From all the way across
This crowded room all night
You look like you’ve been dying
Waiting on ascension
How’d you get so lost
And who turned out your light

Who turned out your light
Still trying to find your line of sight

Baby lets get going
There might be no tomorrow
For all you think you know
This might be what makes it right
There’s a cool wind blowing
And a car that I can borrow
Baby lets just go now
And drive straight through the night

Lets find some open spaces
Where we can just lie back and step outside this time
There’s something ‘bout the sadness in your face
It looks like it needs to see the sky

Who turned out your light
It’s gonna be all right
Set it down once in a while
Let me see you

This one is good too, although, I think you hit the bullseye on your last version.

This song is my favorite not only in this album but in all the other albums I have listened to so far (and there are a lot of good songs this year in the RPM). The song starts with one strum of a chord that sounds like the beginning of the “Rain song” by Led Zeppelin. That grabbed my attention immediately but then the real character of the song is revealed. The melodic sound of the strings in the background go very well with guitar. The lyrics are very well done: “Baby where’re you going, in such a hurry? Slow down and feel the grass between your toes once in a while….” I was humming that line all day the other day. I like the way the song climaxes to the lead guitar sections with a nice guitar rhythm and strings in the background. The only thing I would suggest is to work on your voice to get the high notes a bit better. Even though you got it, It sounded like they were a bit of a challenge. At any rate, in my humble opinion, this is a hit song!

there’s something about the way you sing “cool wind BLOWing”
and “satchel full of WORRies” that i really realy like. Gets me right down into the heart of the matter. Bravo.
