This week’s song from Looking For Buildings is “Field Of View,” a song I co-wrote with Kyle Richards. I really enjoyed building this from a fragment Kyle sent me to start with.
I was warned I might get into something More than I needed to be My friends said “You gotta watch out for this one” Maybe Good advice But I chose to ignore it It was a chance meant to take How would I Know I should believe it Heartache Chorus: There’s not a chance in Hades I wouldn’t take that chance with you In the center of my field of view It’s true and you belong there One step up It’s a matter of feeling I’m feeling more than you know Two steps back Taking moments to listen Hello Not so bad Tell our friends we believe in A love despite our mistakes You and I Understanding each other Keepsakes Bridge: Sometimes you know Something is right and extraordinary And when you know You go right on through And break into That rendezvous is you
This week’s song from Looking For Buildings is “Known Diamond,” written and originally performed by Ken Stringfellow. I love this song and recorded it once previously, for the Theme Music group on Facebook:
Since I didn’t write this one, and lyrics are readily available on the web, I won’t put the lyrics here. But here’s a behind-the-scenes video about the song (it won’t be visible until 11 am on July 14).
This week’s song from Looking For Buildings is “Follow,” an oddly bouncy song about a broken relationship. Well, you know, I always had a thing for that bouncy minor key like in “Happy Together”…
The past is a foreign land so this was far away When we two met by accident and jumped into the fray He expected to meet someone else and so in fact did I It was years ago December and the snow was falling down We laughed and fell together and made angels on the ground Who needs to take vacation when you’ve got the warmth of two And soon the rest would follow Chorus: Like a downhill racing sled It might have been predicted Where this cold snowfall led It was closer to a blizzard than I ever thought I’d see We took forever vows among our friends and family We left together for a honeymoon in sunny climes And soon the rest would follow Chorus: Like a downhill racing sled It might have been predicted Where this cold snowfall led It was snowing hard again on another winter day I asked him where he’ d been and he didn’t want to say His body was still here but his eyes were far away And soon the rest would follow Like a downhill racing sled It might have been predicted Where this cold snowfall led The year turns round the snow returns over and again And soon the rest will follow And soon the rest will follow And soon the rest will follow
