Come Away With Me
on: May 18, 2019, 19:39:46
I have been feeling the need to take a little break. I need to slip back to my roots a bit, I think....maybe re-tool things a little....maybe just get back into the center of my music and see where it has taken me after all this time.  :)

No big deal. I'll still be....around.

I'll leave you all, my Kitchen family, with this quick phone video of a song I wrote a dozen or so years ago.

Come Away With Me



Close those files
And lock down the store
You say you need time off
But I think you need more
And if you need a reason
To walk out that door
Just Listen

'Cause I've been tryin'
To find the time
To rub down those shoulders
And ease that worried mind
I've been bustin' down doors
And crossin' those lines
But I'm here today
Just to hear you say
You'd come away with me

"Cause I know a place
Somewhere down the road
It may take a while to get there
"Cause we'll have to drive slow
Its not too far
From where I want to go with you

Don't call home
Don't tell 'em where you're goin'
Do you have to pack a bag
Well I don't know
Just listen real close
To what your heart has to say
"Cause there's love right at your door
Don't turn away

And don't tell me
About that hot shower
And I don't want to know
About that blue robe...oh no
And I don't need to hear about
That place on your back
Where my fingers like to go
I just want to know
If you'll come away with me

Hi @Leonard Scaper

Hmmmm... Video not available!!!

Well,  you are going back to your origins...
But, it seems by your words there is something that is not ok... I sincerely hope you will reach everything you need to do, even from the silence of your deepest moments. Nevertheless, it would be great we could watch your video with that Leonard Scaper that we don't know. I wish you the best, Leonard.

Ah..... @Mora Amaro La Loba ....all is well with Lenny. I am just letting the surface clear briefly so that the light can shine a bit deeper into the depths.

I'll still be here.....one way or another. I just may not be posting any new songs for a bit.

That video should be available:

@Leonard Scaper

Thanks for sharing your video and that moment.

I can only tell you that sometimes what you want to happen happens, so ask for it. Good luck

Oooooh @Leonard Scaper what a nice listen and angle of view.. In this perspective I can literally see you catching ideas and executing them immediately.. Ladies and gentlemen, here's a look at the sensitive side of Steve.. Not that we didn't hear that already.. now the footage confirms it..
Pleasure to listen to Steve.. Keep them coming..
Love, Mar T.

Very nice @Leonard Scaper and also really good to see you playing on the video.

You have such a relaxed warm vocal delivery on all your songs and your playing comes across as relaxed as well.

You have a calming influence on the listener.

Enjoy your break and come back soon!

cheers

Thanks for that @Jurgen .

 I'm not really going anywhere.....I am taking a break from writing, though.

@Leonard Scaper A lovely  warm song  delivered in simple intimate style. The  "would you come away with me"  line stays with me.
Breaks are good ...I look forward to hearing where yours takes you.
