Truth For A Truth
on: February 16, 2021, 08:22:35
Hi all......got a new one. I hope you all like it!

“There's a warning sign in the road ahead
There's a lot of people saying we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan but I am to them”…………….Neil Young

“Truth For A Truth”
Words & Music by Tom Tognaci

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=14197772

Somebody help me….
Somebody save me….
Rescue me from myself
They call me a loner
They call me a bad man
who’s pulled his guns down from the shelf.

Now, here’s the real story….
I’m a stand up American
who’s a son of God and this country’s love
I’ll stand by my code,
taking the higher road;
keeping me straight with the Lord above

But to spin a tale so tall when there’s not much there at all…..
Redefining what is truth;
then, to call it rain, the facts, while they’re pissing down our backs
Now, that’s the fight I’ll fight, truth for a truth

So, don’t buy the fake news
….I am not the enemy
I’m the man who turns the other cheek
I’ll stand for justice,
sidestep a silly fuss
Even if it means I’m looking weak

But to spin a tale so tall when there’s not much there at all…..
Redefining what is truth;
then, to call it rain, the facts, while they’re pissing down our backs
Now, that’s the fight I’ll fight, truth for a truth

Somebody help me.
Somebody save me……
Rescue me from myself.
They call me a loner
They call me a bad man
Got my MAGA hat down from the shelf
I Know The Truth By My Struggle Against It

t is a song full of force despite being only mounted on the guitar, I like the game of shots that you have done with the voice and the lyrics seem very interesting, personal and deep.
Good song, it has very catchy parts @IronKnee

@IronKnee  - I like the Neil Young / Bob Dylan atmosphere. And the different volume of the vocal in the mix between chorus and verse.
Current topic too. Maga hats from the shelves...
Compared to "Your Aura Glows"' i found the guitar truth for a truth a bit unclear... that is a mixing thing I guess

Heartfelt and genuine @IronKnee   :praise: :praise: :praise:

Many Masterful turns of phrase ... and strong poetry.... I was slayed by “I’ll stand for justice,“ rhymed with
“sidestep a silly fuss”

I was also delighted to hear a few more of your songs that followed.... you have a gift 😎

I like the lyrics very much, also the melody of the voice. It is a timeless style, intimate full of personal reflections. So nice to hear, it's very well sung @IronKnee

Salut!

This is a powerful piece of music that is performed with raw honesty and emotion.

I love the lyrics.....I love everything about this song.
"The main thing is to have a gutsy approach....but use your head." Julia Child

 "In a world of robotic conformity, the only originality left in music is the imperfections" Eric Craptone

"Special thanks to Steve Gleason for making me who I am today." Leonard Scaper
