Lyrics
So, honey, you showed up on my door, right on cue
I was looking for a lover and what I found was you
We had our good times up until you turned the screw
It's gonna take a long time baby, getting over you
>
You took me and taught me, as only you could do
Then, you used me and abused me and honey, that made me so blue
I'll chalk it up to my youth and naivete
I didn't know any better and tried to stay
>
You left me and you did not even say goodbye
Now I sit alone at home and all I do is cry
You left me here all alone and baby that made me just a little...gun shy
I am so all alone now baby; you're the reason why
That I'm...gun shy
>
Was you who loaded that pistol and how you liked to play
There's a good chance you'd have shot me on any given day
But then, came the one day when I turned from your view
You put that bullet in the gun that was always meant for you
>
You took me and taught me, as only you could do
Then, you used me and abused me and honey, that made me so blue
I'll chalk it up to my youth and naivete
I didn't know any better and tried to stay
>
You left me gun shy, without a guy
I'm gun shy baby; you're the reason why
You used to trip my trigger but baby, those days are gone
Now I'm gun shy, baby, and I'm movin' on
>
You left me and you did not even say goodbye
Now I sit alone at home and all I do is cry
You left me here all alone and baby that made me just a little...gun shy
I am so all alone now baby; you're the reason why
That I'm...gun shy

Lyrics: Charlene Kankiewicz and Ed Wemmerus

I like where you took this song, Char
And I didn't do all the work, you worked you tail off on the vocals, and did an excellent job on it.

Thanks for taking a chance on this song Char, ya done good, Girl.

Be well and be cool,

Ed

Well, Ed,
that is gracious and generous of you and you are a gentleman, for sure.
You were very patient and helpful. My biggest problem is figuring out where to put the words. Thank you for your lines for the bridge and for the choruses. (You got that line in about "tripping my trigger", you sneaky thing... Thanks so much for the opportunity. :)

Gun Shy Song w Sloparts
Wow, Char your skills at getting a clean vocal recording improve with each post. Nice lyrics in this one. Some really nice vocal phrasing. But what I like the best is the way the melody and backing track mesh and compliment each other. Be proud of what you accomplished with Ed's very cool and bluesy track.

I got lyrics
easily enough. It took coaching to get me to sing in parallel. I think I sound a little scared or tentative, but that probably works for the song. I had the idea that she killed him. I had a line: It'll take me 20 years to pay for you. "Now, it is ambiguous as to what happened", she said, as she blows away the smoke from the revolver. Ed was a big help in getting it right. Thank you. :)

Cool groove
This is cool and has a smooth groove.

Very cool harmonies.

Nice retro feel.

Ed
fabricated the harmonies out of what he had. I would love to try harmonizing with other singers or myself, more. I have a lot to learn. Ralph and Paula beat me out at that. Thank you. :)

Huh..well,
I hadn't thought about that. I can hear what you mean. This is Ed's song. I just made a scenario up. He did a lot of extra work to help me get the pacing right. Thank you. :)

Ed's instrumental was cool, but Char you brought it to another level of coolness! Love the lyrics, I might have to borrow your gun!

Always so great to hear you sing, I look forward to your songs. Terrific collab!

What
an excellent chorus. Really, really good. Suits your voice ... you really hear you getting into this Charlene .. little shakier in the 1st verse .. but grows from strength to strength as the song progresses. Fine lyrics too. Ed does a great bed hear .. the chorus has a great little off beats and I like that slower drawn out descending line- very catchy. Hats off to a great collaboration.

I didn't think I could get the words in... correctly and in time, the way Ed wanted it. The musical expertise is all Ed's doing. Thank you. :)

Gun Shy Song w Sloparts
I liked Ed's backer, and this is a cool fit of lyrics/melody to the "Gun Shy" concept. Excellent collab!

Char said 2645 days ago (June 27th, 2010)
I did
the best I could. I usually get the first line of a poem/lyric and write the rest..without really trying to fit it to the music as much as trying to make the narrative make sense. There are so many lyrics that I don't understand and I always want people to understand what I mean. I could have written something else but it seemed to me that Ed really liked the idea of being gun shy, so there you go. Thank you. :)

My original
line was "you bought the bullet that was always meant for you." I was more homicidal in my thinking than Ed was. Woman scorned stuff, no doubt! Thanks, Dave. :)

Excellent work you two!
Ed's original was an instant download for me and I said it didn't need vocals. I guess it still doesn't, but this is such a charming and cool addition that I now have a semi-permanent grin. Char, you are sounding particularly good. Thanks to you both.

Oh, see..
I wanted to sound better but I trust Ed's judgment. Yeah, I wouldn't have asked to add to the piece as I thought it sounded great as it was. Thank you. :)

The basic idea
for lyrics was mine, but Ed added a few lines of his own and a few more syllables in places, too. So, he gets the credit for music and lyrics and direction and of course, production. Thank you, bud. :)

Nice
Really liked the groove on this. Nice hook on the chorus. Some jazzy piano accompaniment would really work here as well...maybe starting on the second verse?

Good lyrics and nice delivery from Char. Well done to both of you on this.
