Don’t You Know? (Song Piano Demo)

Don’t You Know (Demo) (CLICK TITLE TO HEAR SONG)

Verse 1

Where will you run to
After I’m gone?
Where will you run to
When my heart moves on?

Where will you hide, dear
Where will you turn?
What will you do, dear
Once the bridges are burned?

Chorus

Cause don’t you know
The fire’s gettin’ colder?
Don’t you know my flames
Are losing heat?
Don’t wait for the ashes to smolder
Before you lay your heart at my feet.

Verse 2

Will you be ok, dear
Within empty walls?
Will you be ok, dear
Seeing me in her arms?

I hope you come around, love.
I’m counting on you.
But quit playing your games,
Love’s payment is overdue.

The Invitation (Demo) Song

The Invitation (Demo) (CLICK TITLE TO HEAR SONG)

Verse 1

Through it all I suppose I should hate you.
Through it all I suppose I shouldn’t care.
Through it all I know I should dispose you.
But through it all, my love for you still prevails.

Chorus

So if you’re out there tonight,
Consider this my invitation.
If you’re out there tonight,
I’m just sittin’ here a-waiting
For your call.

Verse 2

Can’t seem to figure out why my heart still holds you,
Wish it would listen to common sense.
Can’t seem to figure out why I haven’t left you,
Punished you with my loneliness.

Verse 3

Well, I suppose I’ve been conditioned –
The byproduct of a romantic heart.
Oh, but I wish it listened,
When I tell it to rip your memory apart.

Break

But this bitterness is building
Walls around my fragile heart.
And I won’t stop to delay construction,
Of sealing your memory in the dark.

End Chorus

So if you’re out there tonight,
This is my last invitation.
If you’re out there tonight,
Cause I’ve grown tired of a-waitin’
For your call.

What’s It Gonna Be (Demo) Song

So I’ve never done this before, but I thought I’d give it a shot…I thought I’d start uploading some of my songs from start to finish, instead of just posting the “polished” final. I think it’s important to not only put out the absolute best stuff, but also the stuff that is in progress, is messy, or has mess ups in it. Why? Well, for me, I’ve always gotten encouragement seeing actual professional artists have bad tracks or listening to their demos. It reminds the people just starting out that no one is perfect and that everything is a work in progress. It reminds me, “hey, I’m not the only one that doesn’t get it perfect the first time around.” But also, more importantly, I love watching the creative process…the magic that happens when starting with a lump of coal and molding it, pouring your heart into it, and breathing life into it until it becomes a beautiful piece of gold.

Verse 1

I’ve been lookin’ out my window..
Staring, wondering where you are.
I’ve been counting on tear drops
And wishing upon a broken heart.

Baby, if you could hear me,
Would you even call out my name?
There’s nothing like sitting next to love’s fire;
Nothin’ worse than burning in love’s flames,
Burning in love’s flames.

Chorus

So tell me what am I gonna do
With these never-ending thoughts of you?
Tell me what am I gonna be,
Without you next to me.

So baby, what’s it gonna be,
Stay or leave?
Love or free?
What’s it gonna be?
What’s it gonna be?

Verse 2

I’ve been talking to shadows –
Memories that float in the air.
Misery’s my constant companion,
Providing nothing but despair,
Nothing but despair.

There’s no stars on heaven’s ceiling.
Nothing hangs but the moon.
All my dreams are quickly fading,
Alone, here in my room,
In my room.
