Lyrics
Keeping It All Inside

Oh no, it’s the middle of the night
Oh no, I can’t sleep right
Can’t stop thinking about my day
Wishing thoughts would go away

But it’s all right
Keeping it all inside
But it’s all right
Going to lose my mind

3:33 I just can’t slumber
Raining pretty hard, I hear the thunder
Oh no, it’s 4:44
Another hour and I’m out the door

But it’s all right
Keeping it all inside
But it’s all right
Going to lose my mind

Take a drink and counting sheep
Popping pills to fall asleep
So damn tired, I can’t shut down
Watching clocks just winding down

Oh No it's 4:44!!
Dude, I'm having the same problem lately, but tonight, if everything's NOT alright, I'll sing myself to sleep with your cool new tune.

I like your backup vocals on this track. Dreamy guitar track and whirly swirlies that can put this big baby back to sleep.

This is a really great "Classic Lavalamp" song. You must've been one of those west coast punks back in the day with flowers in your mohawk.

Thanks for the DL

WOW Bob
You're first on this one. Don't try anything that I mentioned to fall asleep, except counting sheep.

Thanks

but it's all right....
... this song is more than all right. A nice upbeat take on insomnia. I really that the atmospherics of the instruments... nighttime sounds with a catchy melody. Nicely sung and nicely done LL...

This I can relate too. LOL how many nights my brain would not shut off. Very cool spin on a frustrating experience.

I usually just drink a lot of beer when I can shut down. Seems to work lol. No, but really Thanks A Lot

No coincidence "$" and "4" share the same key on the key board. 444=Money silly, not death.

Sleep is for the weak anyway.

Sleepy
I've suffered from insomnia since I was 19 years old. My brain can't pause for more than 2 hour intervals, crazy but true. Ahhh I can relate, what a great song.

immediately
fast-paced. Kind of a breakneck insomnia? Very dreamy and oddly visceral -- the synth that comes in at 1:24 kind of sweeps you off your feet and builds from there. Great work!

Keeping It All Inside
A lot to like here. Solid structure, good vocals over a melody that moves around nicely.
Good complementary sound choices, the swirly synth patch (or is that a guitar with a lot of chorus) is great, and I like the strummed acoustic.

Crazy coincidence
just had one of those nights last night. First in a very long time. The only thing worse is dreaming about working and waking up exhausted. Love the sound of the delay guitars and the whole track just exudes cool.

I was just thinking
about you and why you haven't posted in a while, and here you are with another classic,
I think you might have channeled a little jumpin jack flash into this "but it's allright" lyric which is allright! This is more than allright though, very well done, lovr the backer, great mix of sounds!
Check out my latest song called Please Help, Pride of NYC needs tracks!
lavalamp said 2603 days ago (October 30th, 2010)
JD
I was wondering when someone would mention Jumping Jack Flash. It just came when I wrote this without intention. Decided to change the words, but "But it's all right" just seemed to work.

Glad you enjoyed.

Winner. Out of this world chorus and novel idea.
Acoustic strumming rushes this along nicely
Top song

I'll
probably be singing this one tonight when I'm struggling to go to sleep.

I love that bass rundown (and the whole bass line for that matter). That's really great.

Very cool song man!

Man...
I've been there. I love the warbly synths in the midsection. And what a killer triplet changeover! Wicked synths, truly sleepless stuff. As always, you have the most original vocal performances on macjams. Love that voice.

This flows nicely. Love the upfront bass track and McCartney inspired line. Nice chorus. Great flanged instrumental section. It's amazing how the simplest ideas work best.

hi dave. liking this a lot....catchy all over the place....and very confident vocal delivery with seriously great lyrics. i think you had scope to maybe do some of it an octave higher and belt it out....but it hits the spot the way it is.

Nice work here!
This is really well done! This one has an early 60s feel to it, and your vocals are reminiscent of the early stones. This is excellent. One of my favorites of yours. The only suggestion I would make is that the drums sound a tad out of sync in places and could use some more fills. Excellent song with lots going on to keep interest. Enjoyed it!

lavalamp said 2597 days ago (November 4th, 2010)
Out of sync
It was probably me and not the drums. lol I get "fill" happy sometimes, and thought I might tone it done on this one, but I appreciate the suggestion. Cool that you liked it all around. Thanks

Parichayaka said 2598 days ago (November 3rd, 2010)
Catchy!
If you come up with songs like this when you have trouble sleeping...it's a small price to pay (kidding, hope that night was an exception!). A really well written song with a catchy hook and a wonderfully upbeat approach to a rather annoying situation. Listened to it a few times and enjoyed it a lot! I'll remember that when I have trouble falling asleep..."it's aaaaaall right...going to loose my mind" :)

Hey thanks
Glad you find this catchy. Some may feel that I've been taking the "simple" approach lately. But, I don't write these songs for musicians, I write them for everyone.

Thanks for the comment

Cool song Dave, with some nice FX - I wonder how I'll sleep tonight?
