ADD and Creativity

A song i wrote and recorded a few years ago...I took the original guitar track (played by my buddy Ed) and rerecorded my vocal a couple of days ago...I wrote this for a friend who told me he was contemplating suicide.
The pics are of me...and me and my little bro taken years ago.

WHAT WILL BE, WILL BE [Jan. 19th, 2007|02:02 pm]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
I used to think about you, everyday
but now those feelings have, gone away
i tried to reach you with my, loving heart
then your response just tore me, all apart

(chorus)
and i say,
what will be will be
there ain't never gonna be
a you and me
what will be will be
i'll have to find another
dream for me

i thought persistence was, the way to go
i tried my best to somehow, let you know
i've been a fool who went and, tried too hard
just another dream that, went too far

(chorus)
and i say,
what will be will be
there ain't never gonna be
a you and me
what will be will be
i'll have to find another dream for me

(bridge(
i feel painful echoes of something, gone astray
but I can't touch you or change yesterday

what will be will be
there ain't never gonna be
a you and me
what will be will be
i'll have to find another dream for me

I was trying to write an oldie [Jan. 2nd, 2007|08:44 pm]

I was trying to write an oldie...a song that sounded like it came out of the 1960's....The title was stolen from the title of an entry from one of my LJ friends...The general theme was having a euphoric kind of a good time...I recorded this song at songwriters night at Guiseppi's Pizza...I was lucky that one of the pickers that night brought his mandolin...I'm in the higher range on my voice on this one...So I don't really sound like the same guy who sang "Choose Life" on my previous RapidShare track...Another thing...This was recorded on a plain old cassette recorder...sitting on a chair right in front of me...

Here is where to go...Choose the free option and you'll get the recording of "That's So Beautiful"...

[music |Me-"Choose Life"]

Sometime last year I posted the lyrics to one of the songs I have written "Choose Life"...In case anyone would like to download a recording of it...there's a Rapid Share link below...

btw...despite the title...the song has nothing to do with pro-life or pro-choice...I wrote it about a friend who was contemplating suicide.

ADD art thought... [Nov. 10th, 2006|07:43 am]

[mood |blahblah]

I wonder what the ratio of finished to unfinished canvasses/projects I have laying around is.

Probably about 9 out of 10.

Nothing finished since graduating college, that's durn sure.

Also, I'm on a great Yahoo! Group for organizing for the artist... there's mostly scrapbookers, but they certainly do have a TON OF ART to organize, and it's great for motivation to either DO stuff or CLEAN stuff.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OrganizedStudio/

And for those of you interested in not-so-traditional crafts/media/etc. I've got a community (it's only got like, four people and I think I'm the only one who's posted, so this doesn't really count as advertising, does it?)

It's hardcorecrafts --
http://community.livejournal.com/hardcorecrafts/

My usericon is a disembodied BRATZ doll head (it came that way... bodiless, I mean) that I ... zombified. I have pupaphobia (puppet fear) and have been working with dolls to work my way up to puppets to maybe get over it. We'll see if that ever happens.

I Want Sunrise [Oct. 16th, 2006|12:05 am]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
i think that i've been in this bed long enough
it's time to get out
it's time to get up
don't wake the neighbors got the lawn on their minds
they've got nothing to do
so they mow all the time

i want sunrise
soft and quiet comin' up in the east
i want sunrise
without the roar of my neighbors disease

now i'm arisin' got my feet on the floor
i walk cross the room
put my hand on the door
in the kitchen coffee brews in a pot
i drink it right down
even though it's quite hot

i want sunrise
soft and quiet comin' up in the east
i want sunrise
without the roar of my neighbors disease

IF YOUR HEART MOVES FASTER [Sep. 10th, 2006|08:28 pm]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
had a good dream
but it fell to dust
was a tragic story
and your heart went bust
there's a time for livin'
there's a time for dyin'
you may just start laughin'
if you ever stop cryin'

(chorus)
if your heart moves faster
to the next dream goin'
from the ashes of pain
there's a good seed growin'
if the hurt don't kill you
on the morning after
there may be something
if your heart moves faster

found a new dream
dropped right down on you
was the happy ending
that you never knew
there's a time for losin'
there's a time for winnin'
when you're startin' over
start from the beginnin'

(chorus)
if your heart moves faster
to the next dream goin'
from the ashes of pain
there's a good seed growin'
if the hurt don't kill you
on the morning after
there may be something
if your heart moves faster

I JUST WISH THAT I BELIEVED YOU [Aug. 16th, 2006|10:25 pm]
ADD and Creativity

dburr13
I've been around and up and down
i don't understand this life i've found
this thing called destiny
does it have a plan for me?

i'm getting on from day to day
i sometimes drift and lose my way
this life is full of holes
through which the four winds blow

(bridge)
i don't need a map to get me where i'm going
i know i'll get there in the end

(chorus)
i just wish that i believed you
when you said my heart was good
the thought might keep me going
where i never thought i could
why did you believe in me?
I never gave that much to you
i just wish that i could have the faith
that you seem to have in me
i try but it's not happening
what is it that you see?
I'm gonna keep on trying
just because you tell me to believe
what i can't believe

i'm losing track and losing faith
i'm banging up against the gate
the door is closed
and nobody knows

just when i get up on my feet
i have to turn back and retreat
the war goes on
even when i'm gone

(bridge)
i don't need a map to get me where i'm going
i know i'll get there in the end

(repeat chorus}

you get major props if you catch the refence [Jul. 14th, 2006|09:21 am]

arinwolfe
(background: I'm a therianthrope (a spirual shape shifter( wear-cat))
just something that kind of came out of my spastic brain

I’ll show my fangs
Bear my flesh to fur
Ride with on the wind
Lift the wings
And carry me away from here
I shift with the chemicals in the air
A chamilon in fang and fur
I growl in my throat
And trill on my lips
( I sound like a motor boat, I’m told)
a sharp grunt forms in my thoat
where a scream aught to be.
I look up
It’s a full moon in my eyes
And I’ve got to run.
She knows the way.
And I’m
Not alone
Not afraid
Not unhappy

Distracted

(a song about ADD)

You’re talking to me as I sit here today

But I do not hear any words that you say

It’s not that I don’t want to listen to you

It’s just that my mind is miles away


Preoccupied with what somebody said

I try but I can’t get them out of my head


I’m just distracted (it’s nothing I can control)

Yes I’m distracted (so don’t cast me in the role)

Of a person so simple who hasn’t a clue.

Forgive me I’m not trying to ignore you.


I fidget, I’m restless, I turn in my seat

I’m tapping the floor with the soles of my feet

You ask if I’m nervous, I say “not at all.”

It’s just that I hear another drummer’s beat.


But you are amazed by the things that I said

You wonder at what’s going on in my head


When I’m distracted (are you questioning me?)

Yes I’m distracted (is there more than you see?)

And maybe you’ll teach me a thing or two

But this time around I’m the one teaching you.


I’m not making excuses or looking for pity

I only want you to understand me

Though it may take some time I am willing to wait

After all, I’m the one who’s usually late


When I’m distracted (are you questioning me?)

Yes I’m distracted (is there more than you see?)

And maybe you’ll teach me a thing or two

But this time around I’m the one teaching you.
