Lyrics
The Chameleon In You

You play with love like a walnut shell game,
You hide it so well, I’m growing insane,
When you’re cold, my day becomes a blur,
When you’re warm everything is clear,
You’re great for a spell,
Then I’m back in a walnut shell,
Moving around so confused,
I hate the chameleon in you.

You make me pay when you turn to blue,
Then you call to say I love you,
My heart will melt, we’re happy for a while,
Then it’s like a bloody turnstile,
With nowhere to go,
With your mind I will never know,
Oh give me a clue,
I hate the chameleon in you.

Girl, I ain’t no toy,
Your game is no joy,
But underneath your shell,
I feel that all will be well,

Am I a fool to be emotional?
Is it too soon to build our world?
I’ve counted the months, the picture’s incomplete,
I need to know there is no deceit,
The words that you say,
I believe there will come a day,
And that’s well overdue,
To take the chameleon from you

Girl, I ain’t no toy,
Your game is no joy,
But underneath your shell,
I feel that all will be well, will be well

Good stuff!
Having worked with Mr Loh in the past, I well know how excellent his work is---I've said this before, and I'll say it again, but nobody I've heard in the past four years interprets his songs as extremely well as you Cees--congrats to you both on this one! Michael

Yes, Stan definitely writes some cool lyrics.
It's always easy to write cause they already have a rhythm.
Glad you like it

Funky
Love that bass! The glue that holds the funk together. The vocals, guitars and keys are tasty too. Onto the iPod with this one!

thanks!
Well this whole thing started with the bass. Worked hard on it to get the right sound. For me the bass is always important, being a melody- ánd a rhythm instrument. The sound of the bass is always hard to get right..
glad you like it!

FUNky
Sweet keys and the tone of the lightly filtered guitar is NICE.
Your soft grooving vocals make this a smooth funk tune. Nice changes to-boot!

thanks ted
the guitarsound you're referring to is coming from my new guitarprocessor, the korg PX5D, a cool little gadget

This may be about a complex woman, however the music and lyrics are straight-ahead great, and easy to enjoy. Warm and sultry, like the one you describe :-)

Is it scaly in here or is it me?
Starts like a Joe Walsh blues-funker (or Jerry's reverse Wah?!), then come in with Claptonesque-smooth vocals. Never mind the comparisons, though -- this is a really solid original. Oh, and I dig the gurgling bass! Good collab, and good for Stan.

Had me funking along...
Hi Cees. As Sam says below "you keep cranking 'em out". I must admit for the first minute or so that I was listening to this I thought it was a bit too similar in style some of your recent postings but Stan's interesting lyrics and the new Korg guitar processor soon had me funking along like always. Thanks for the D/L. Regards, Peter.

Fantastic production Cees
This certainly has a groove, and you show a lot of restraint in the rhythm section. Not sure about the 1/8th hi-hats in the verse - maybe it would deepen the groove to just play 1/4s there. I'm really impressed by your sound - so clear and punchy.
Top post.

Cool,
I like the heavy bass, and the subtle background guitar, the auto wah adds a cool funkiness to the strat tone. Thanks
