Tell Me Your Secret (RPM)

Uploaded .

272

RPM 2011 number 2. Inspired by an ex-friend of mine who had the most dazzling rose tinted glasses. Always used to envy the simplicity of his view and how nothing could ever get to him (everything gets to me).. since i knew him I know a lot of bad stuff has come to him so he may well have abandoned them since, but this song pays homage to that blissful and for me, elusive, ignorance

If there is a way
to smile in the face of it all gone bad
Wont you tell me your secret

The things around you are all changing
The trees are losing all their fruit
Still that smile of yours keeps raging
You fall but you’ve got your parachute
But for me, it keeps on getting harder
Its getting harder every day
So if there is a way

CHORUS

Even when the tide is turning
And i can feel it surrounding me
Even when I’ve got a bit of your positivity
I can still see
I can still see pain, I can still see loss
I can still see hurt
I can still see millions of people running round without a sense of worth
And this life, it just keeps getting harder
Its getting harder every day
So if there is a way

CHORUS

I like the high strummed parts interjected periodically with the fuzz parts. Moody number, and I don’t mean a pun here. Good stuff.

I dig Hog’s Back as well but this track has a lot more to give as it delivers simple but beautiful. Could easily be on a soundtrack.

Striking vocals Alex. Spirited tune… Was that a distorted kazoo lead? :)
