Title: Bad Choices -
Post by: eblossman on October 07, 2020, 17:03:11
Ok.. Here is my latest effort.

Bad choices
Verse 1
Your mamma used to say
I was a big mistake
Just a rowdy young kid
 that kept you out too late
But thatís alright
Iím still loving you 
Girl thatís no lie
And now I
Still miss those days back when we had
Not a single living
 care in sight
Chorus,
We used to live our lives
Like there was no tomorrow
just point the way
And I would follow
We were running hard
 with no idea where to

We used to stay in bed
start drinking at noon
Standing on the ledge
howling at the moon
We were known
To get a little crazy a time or two
Yeah I  still wanna make bad choices with you

Verse 2
Now weíre a little older now
 we should be responsible
But Iím staring at this old chevy
 and the tank is full
So how about tonight
We load it up and head down to the coast  ah yeah
We could drive all night
Our toes in the sand
By the morning light
Just soaking in such a beautiful sight





Chorus,
We used to live our lives
Like there was no tomorrow
Youíd just point the way
And I would follow
We were running hard with no idea where to

We used to stay in bed
start drinking at noon
Standing on the ledge
howling at the moon
We were known to get a little crazy a time or two
Yeah I  still wanna make bad choices with you

Bridge
We started with some low expectations
We had our reservations      
but it worked out just fine
Were on a 24/7  vacation
We had some imagination
And you were right here with me
My partner in crime

Last chorus

We used to live our lives
Like there was no tomorrow
 Youíd just point the way
And I would follow
We were running hard with no idea where to

We used to tear up the fields   
In my pickup truck
Stay out all night
Just to press our luck
We were known to get a little crazy a time or two
Yeah I  still wanna make bad choices with you

Talking about telling a story @eblossman
A great story and a great clip.
In a musical tradition where the amount of songs released is incredible, you have managed to stay upright.
A very good performance!
Kind regards< Gus

It is a beautiful song, a beautiful ballad of love well developed and with good sound, the appropriate to this style
I love this line @eblossman

"Just soaking in such a beautiful sight"

Stay safe

Quality chap - a really good recording. Not really my kind of genre to be honest - but the guitars sound really wonderful to me - and there is a 'life' in this that really shines through.  A heartfelt ballad that would have Blake Shelton voting for you on The Voice - but I suspect there are also other dimensions to your vocal talents. Intonation and pitch are spot on - and you have great phrasing and harmony skills.

This was recorded by someone who knows what they are doing - and I respect that immensely... allowing the song to really live and the message to be passed.

Very much enjoyed it.
