About JamesZ

Author Website: JamesZ
I've spent the last 3 years with a Beatle Cover Band. My band mates are awesome and I've finally gotten to be the musician I've wanted to be thanks to this experience and all that I've learned from being in performing band. We've gotten some limited success and it is slowly building up a fan base of our act. I've been doing a lot of hard self study on music theory and writing. I've sung a lot of harmonies and lead vocals in the band and it has been eyeopening to learn some of the harmony tricks. Learning how to construct songs from John Lennon has been a joy to me since I've always loved his music. Knowing how it was created is like finding the magic wand that works. I've also been working hard on learning how to create good demos so my own songs can be created and sold in the market place. I am now working on building up my demo library with the goal of selling my songs to artists. I still play in the band too. We are also working on bringing in some of the original material to our band.

SOMETHING THAT WILL LAST

 

When I fall and all is black,
nowhere to run
I feel me going round and round again
I see you know
Oh you know

Something with you, something you do
Please tell me something that will last

I give you all my words of hope
like broken glass
I hear your dreams walk away
Is it today?
Blown away

Something with you, something you do
Please tell me something that will last

Its fine, don't mind
that much
I swear, who cares
not me
your smile is dangerous to see

Can you save a lonely heart
won't you take my hand
I walk on the edge
don't let me fall
take it all

Something with you, something you do
Please tell me something that will last

Its fine, don't mind
that much
I swear, who cares
not me
your smile is dangerous to see

When I fall and all is black,
nowhere to run
I feel me going round and round again
I see you know
Oh you know

Something with you, something you do
Please tell me something that will last

When I fall and all is black
When I fall and all is black
When I fall and all is black
