Description
This is my tribute to Syd Barrett and early Floyd. It's for my wife Nicole, who I had a crush on 10 years before we were married, and who just had our first child Sophie Bennett. I did this on 4 track and bounced it into the digital realm. Wanted to do something new, but I think my
MIDI keyboard is history, so here you are.

I was thinking of re-recording it as it's pretty lo-fi, but I think the sound is right for the song. After dumping it in GB, I just added a little reverb and EQ (although not very much at all). Maybe it could use a snare drum, maybe not.

Lyrics
Verse 1:
Every girl before you left me feeling like there's something missing
Every girl before you left me feeling like there's something wrong with me
I could only hope to find someone that would make me feel happy
Every girl before you left me feeling like there's something that was missing

Chorus:
How we lie, with our back to the wall
How we fly, with our face to the floor

Verse 2:
You're the only girl that ever made me feel like I could be a person
You're the only one that ever got to put a ring on my finger dear
You're the only one I want to go to bed with every single night dear
You're the only one I want to lay beside every night (I'm sleeping)

Chorus:
How I lie, with my back to the wall
I could fly, with my faceto the floor

Outro:
Bah Bah Bah Bah Bah, Bah Bah Bah Bah Bah, Bah Bah,....

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Have you read: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer? Astounding novel, especially if you were there too. The photo is central to the book. Wonderfully artistic arrangement.

hey tobin
thanks for the book recommendation. i actually haven't read it, but it sounds great. it's almost as if i'm retarded. beacause i didn't realize what that picture was until it was up for a little while. i just thought it was an interesting looking picture in a graphic sense. i usually just take 1 word from the song title, do a google image search and find something that appeals to me visually. this was found while searching "person" i'm glad you like the song, it was written for my wife.

This showed up in the playlist
today when I logged on. Great Barrett tribute - uncannily Sydish. Excellent lyrics and vox and you really captured his pick sound.
I have to say I find the image here very difficult to view - but that's just me - I was too close to the action I'm afraid.
