I Fly With You

I’ll get my feet back on the ground
And my thoughts will be clear
My heart’s never let me down before
But my head’s in a cloud

I fly with you
Higher than I wanted to
Defying gravity
Yeah, I fly with you

Gettin’ higher approaching cloud nine
It’s a feel good ascent
Addiction I can’t overcome
Altitude affliction

Bridge: Am Em Am B
Have I lost my senses – or just my mind
Envision descending – afraid of heights

    Great job Bob!! The drums sound right on the money to me. I still think a saxophone or flute arpeggio would sound good at 0:34 to 0:37 and when it comes back around.And 2:04 to 2:20 blew me away!! I’m a lyric man and I gotta tell you The lyrics are uncompromised!! don’t change a word!! this is a song I would like to do. vocals…. David Bowie or maybe Mark Knopler.

    J.J Cale would love this!!

    excellent revision, sir… and I quite agree with “Highway Bob”. …. and… if you ever need art… give a holler. http://www.artwanted.com/artist.cfm?ArtID=44564&Display=Med&SGID=0&Page=0. Ken Keegan

    Not my cup of tea. I don’t like pure synth produced tunes and I think your vocals are weak. At times it sounds like a Sonic the Hedgehog video game soundtrack. The lyrics are kind of weak but the part where you say your flying higher approaching cloud 9 was clever. I wish I had more positive things to say but, like I said, this is not my favorite style of music.

      Hey Joe, I was able to find one thing constructive in your criticizing comment! I’m not familiar with Sonic the Hedgehog video game but it’s great to know there’s a market for this song as a soundtrack! Thanks for the idea!

      Thanks Andy! Yeah, I’m trying to do more electronic music these days. I’m going to track live drums and add some electric guitar parts in the chorus. It will be an interesting mix! Thanks for the listen and commenting. Bob

    I think this song works. I like your vocals – the timbre of your voice, delivery, effects. Overall, good production, well balanced – I like the idea of the half-chorus instrumental, that was cool – yeah, good job, I would say.

  8. BossMan says:

    I can feel the hook in the song but it just didn’t set with me. Regardless of the electronic style you project, there is potential in the melody.

    Wow! fantastic i love it. I loved the lyrics and the bridge. Well done bob.
