Description
Just caught the challenge theme of Summer. I wrote this in a a few minutes. I don't think it is what anyone had in mind. I wanted to play with enhance tuning, tempo and signature. So, it is merely an experiment. Very emo. No big deal. It is okay if you can't stand stand listening to it. I will keep playing. :)

Lyrics
I drowned in the summer of my life
And I never was resuscitated
It went down the summer of my life
I lived a lie with a man who hated
>
The seasons come and go
And though I sure have tried
Can't rise up from below
Something inside me died
>
I've seen the dark of a another's soul
And that weighed me down so I can't come back
All the years spent in a deep, dark hole
I forgot how to live; I lost the knack
>
The seasons come and go
And though I sure have tried
Can't rise up from below
Something inside me died
>
There's nothing left for me here, behind (I sang below)
And there's nothing more to look forward to
I cherish the bit of joy I find
But it's never enough to see me through
>
The seasons come and go
And though I sure have tried
Can't rise up from below
Something inside me died
>
If I had some hope then, I'd be okay
And I pray that some day things will look up
I hate facing yet another day
Truth is,I just wait for it all to stop
>
The seasons come and go
And though I sure have tried
Can't rise up from below
Something inside me died

Woopsy!
Below was supposed to be behind. Shazbot! Ah, well, it is just an experiment.

And one big Shazbot for this one! This was an emotional emo and I'd like to give you extra kudos for the beautiful lyrics. Kazam!

Thank you..
I like some of the words too. I will re-visit once I find loops that might enhance the piece. I tried about 6 different tempos and as many different signatures, because I can't tell what those are by just listening. I played with the enhance tuning slider and the whole GB program went berserk. The pitch slider slid back and forth, all by itself. It was at -2, then +8 then +12. The enhance kept moving back and forth. Poltergeists! I had to trash that take. Thank you. I know it's weird.

Interesting
You are so creative, Char. I love that you take chances & just have fun doing it. Great lyrics, are you going to add music eventually?

What I'd like is
really good music with this offbeat idea. I intend to sing it differently each time i pick it up until I like something. I am screwing around Dani and I'm always finding ways to make GB go haywire. Thank you. :)

It's a Hard Knock Life - of course you can do all sorts of even cooler things with this - the lyric grabs me.

I hope so.
I am thinking I'd love a really wild treatment. I will try different melodies and structure. The only things I can play with are my words and my voice. Thank you. :)

A very heavy lyric, but the vocal takes the edge off it. Enjoyed the harmonies. Experiment successful!

It
means a lot to me for you to say so, but I know I am not good at this. These lyrics do mean something to me and the Paula voice takes the edge off. Thank you for your time and your support. :)

Serious subject matter
Fascinating listening to the distorted voice with such serious lyrics, seems to make it quite poignant somehow, vulnerable even. Very clever!

I so
appreciate the return listen. I am braver as the chipmunk. Thanks for coming by. :)

Au Contraire
I really liked listening to this! I just love your poetry/lyrics--you really have a gift for complex and weighty, yet accessible, lyrics. I love how spare and straightforward this is--it really highlights the beauty of the lyrics.

This is
far from perfect. I had a quick idea and recorded it in one take. So, no thought or planning went into it. This is a generous comment that I am most grateful for. Thank you. :)

Hi, ste
You think these are odd? It is Emo. You know, the whole thing just came. But, these lyrics do reflect my thoughts, all too often. I try to get on with it, even so. Thanks for listening.:)

This must have been
a followup from the Paula Scat Illogical only this is quite a bit more serious.

This is great.

I always have the time to listen to this.

It is quite creative and unexpected which are always welcome qualities in my book.

Hi, Char
I like how you vocally punctuate the words to bring out all the feeling. Very cool experiment with the effects I've never even tried to play with. I'm looking forward to the version where you are totally over the guy and write him a kiss off song. heehee

The chipmunk
never rubbed off. I'm over but after 40 years of loving without it being returned, I do feel empty. And I have nothing to fill that hole. Thanks for your words. Much appreciated. :)

Yes,
it is surreal. The fx on the voice lightens the heavy mood, I think. This is my life. Thanks. :)
