My dad died at 48 but I still think of him often. Each morning he would wake us saying either " daylight in the swamp" or “rise and shine” Well anyway I had a couple of things I wanted to do this morning. I was going to rebuild my lawnmower’s carb and fuel pump. I started getting sick so i came in a sat for a few minutes. My new pacemaker fires when my heart goes below 50 and it gets me ill. ha ha Anyway, I said screw it I am going to produce a complete song today with the thought of those three words rise and shine.
Unfortunately it didn’t turn out about my dad. It ended up being about a gal who lost at love. Listening again, I heard some words that I should have held a little longer. I made it up as i went, so it doesn’t flow just yet, Anyhow if you have time, give it a bash
edit…cleaned up a few things…added a little into and break guitar…this is the best I can do
Rise and shine
Fireflies… see them glow lyin there watch em come and go
An Inner peace ….a warm release thoughts of love so long ago
There’s still a flicker of light inside tucked away that once was forced to hide
It’s time to rise and shine again lose the hurt… and get on your way
It’s time to rise and shine again don’t look back…ooo you’re gonna be ok
Your lonely heart…. torn apart…. It is healed let it love again
Baby steps a deep breath it’s been too long…your heart in chains
That little light will grow into a flame…you’ll be loved there will be no pain
this one is the final with no drums???
