Vlayman w Matteras: “Dandelion”

Dandelion
c. ’16 Lyrics: J. Mattera; Music: Vlayman

Dandelion, she comes to me
Dandelion, she sets me free
Dandelion, won’t let me be
Oh, Dandelion, she loves me more than me

Dandelion, she gets on top
Dandelion, she won’t stop
Dandelion, proud and true
Dandelion, she’s not for you

Springtime baby, she grows free
Springtime baby,just wait and see
Oh, Dandelion, she loves me more than me
Oh, Dandelion, she loves me more than me

Dandelion,
Oh, Dandelion,
Dandelion, , she loves me more than me

My Musical Week

So, Tuesday I jammed on guitar with a band that a old highschool friend (Dave) plays pretty good bass in. ¬†They had a good drummer (forgot his name), and the decent singer/guitarist (Roger) is a good writer, also. They didn’t immediately invite me to join, don’t know if they will, not sure I want to for various reasons, but I had fun.

Wednesday I had a second jam (mostly bass and some guitar) with a drummer (Joe) I met offa Craigslist. Nice guy, good drummer, had a triple bypass a year ago and so his stamina is about 20 minutes, but he’s good for jamming and recording with, and, like I said, a nice guy.

Thursday I got to gether with the Bustouts’ excellent former drummer (Mark the cop) and a good new bassist (Bob); I sing and play guitar. We are calling ourselves a band, mebbe, “The Strangers” (thanx, jr!), but are really more of a recording project at this point.

Yesterday I mixed down and did some recording on a cuppla tracks I recorded last Sunday with Joe, as I did on Monday, and reworked my pedal board and soldered some cables.

This morning I did some lead guitar work onna rap track a friend of mine is Svengali’ing – he texted me he “loves” it.

This afternoon Joe came over and we did some percussion and vocals on our two tracks, what I will post soon.

Just sezzin’ …

Vlayman: “Younger Women (Hey, Hey!)”

Younger Women (Hey, Hey!)
c. ’16 Vlayman

Standing in the shadows of lust
I been shakin’ t’il I rattle and cuss
Standin’ in the shadows of love
I’m gonna do what I must

Hey, hey

Lookin’ at ya through half closed eyes, yeah
You make me think about how I wanna die

CH: Hey, hey, what is it about younger women
Puts me in mind of what I ain’t been givi n’ (#2 gettin’)
Ain’t just a line that I’m singin’,
about my loneliness?

Smellin’ yer tears, tastin’ yer hair
What doya fear? Why can’t ya stay?
Why can’t ya stay?

Vlayman: “Management”

Management
c. ’16 Vlayman

It’s the kinda thing ya do
when they’re lookin’ at you
Do ya know what I mean
It ain’t really me
I ain’t tryin’ to be mean
_
I don’t mean to push
But if ya knowed what it took

I know ya know what I mean
It ain’t really me
I ain’t meant to be mean
It’s how ya gotta act
When they on yer back
I know ya know what I mean
It ain’t really me
I ain’t tryin’ to be mean

I ain’t better than
q y’all
But it ain’t my call
I’m management

This weren’t my idear, I guess
And I hope yer last check clears real fast
I din’t know what I mean
This ain’t really me
I ain’t really mean

I ain’t better than all y’all
But it ain’t my call
I’m management

Vlayman: “Fever of the Gods”

Fever of the Gods
c. ’16 Vlayman

When it gets that hot
You can be pretty sure what you got
Somethin’ deep within
Mortal man calls a sin

You got the fever, fever
of the gods

When yer incapable of praying
And yer body keeps on dehydrating
When you can’t help but begin
Even tho’ you know it’s mebbe a sin

You got the fever, fever
of the gods

Don’t matter if you is the promised one
Once yer there it’s already begun
All you can do is go again
Make it yer own special sin

You got the fever, fever
of the gods
