Alibi (Jambrains & Lostboy)
on: May 08, 2019, 22:09:02
Fourth song from myself and @LostBoy. Together we are Sky Lanterns and this is Alibi.

Buckle up, mind your speakers and enjoy the ride!

Lyrics
Zoeís eyes show her resolve
And I love her more
Our hearts beating fast
She pulls outside the bank and itís time.

I feel the sun, itís freedom on my face
But God we need the cash, I pull down the mask
Cos I donít see another way...oh no.

Chorus.
This is the part where you tell me
Everything is gonna be alright
Taking a chance on a feeling
Oh no, this is the part where you tell me
Everything is gonna be alright
Babyís got an alibi.

Engines running, I come stumbling
Bag of cash in hand.
But some stupid guard took a shot
I wasnít armed just a finger, in a jacket

I feel the sun, grow colder on my face
Zoe hits the gas, Iím losing blood fast
I see her wipe a tear away...oh no.

Bridge.
I know this wasnít the plan
Pull over, youíve still got a chance
I throw her the cash
I kiss her tell her donít look back.......drive!
Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

This music has a very good and authentic style
It has moved me immediately to other times where groups and music were authentic and full of strength
I think it's a perfect job  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::
Congratulations  :yes:
I think there is always a thin line between reality and fantasy.
Crossing that line is easy
The difficult thing is to return to reality
And stay sane

Hi @Jambrains

Great story, totally atypical, very well described in a few words. Good production and good mix. Congratulations also to @LostBoy

Since today I am angry with the world I would have liked that the end would have been another ... hahaha
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Wow! I'm glad I plugged in the good headphones for this one. Really good writing here.......the song has the feel of a classic.

Fantastic guitars and amazing vocals.

Pretty cool production in that bridge...taking it down like that and then adding those effects with that smoking guitar solo as it comes back up. Seriously good production throughout.

Oh..wait...there's a tiny little pop right at the end...right at 3:46. I did mention the good headphones.  ;)

Very tight piece of work!
I associate this kind of music with things that have little to do with music as such, this could be the exception that proves me wrong.

No:
Spandex
Hair fixing stuff
Stadium (large waving from the stage to get the public in motion)
Fake bracelets for guys
Scarcely clothed young women
Handkerchiefs around the guysí heads, to obscure baldness and to hold the brains (if any) in place

This is what I mean. The musicís very good, but the standard exaggeration is avoided. Does this make sense?
