I first want to thank those of you who answered my question; it was nice to get such a strong and immediate response. I tried to give back with a strong and immediate song! A number of bloggers suggested the girl’s hobby should be singing (hobbitgirl, ytrepyb, and doom2525), so I pretended this was a democracy and went with power in numbers. And I took fancy-tits's suggested name Shaye because…it's pretty. Why else? I came up with the guitar riff as I was falling asleep last night, but I wrote the lyrics, figured out the vocals, and recorded this in less than an hour. Thank you, followers; your interest is my fuel! I may work with some of the other suggestions I received, too; I want to give back to all of you. Enjoy! — Kavalier Calm
Shaye, when you sing, I am all ears.
You have the voice of one who’s seen better years.
Well, I’ve seen better times, too,
and I’d like to make good times with you.
'Cause it may be easy to carry a tune;
but I had no reason to sing before I met you.
If you teach me all your songs,
I know I can’t go wrong.
We’ll be two songbirds, flying through the air—
filled with music, without a care.
Shaye, I thought the world was full of mutes until I met you.
I thought I’d gone deaf ‘cause I heard no woman’s song.
But now I know the truth:
I had no reason to sing before I met you.
Some nights, I sing about love
until I lose my voice.
Some nights, I write about love
until my fingers bleed.
This may not bring you to my door,
but that’s not my choice.
All I can do is sing and write
and hope you listen and read.
Me, singing into the mic. — Kavalier Calm
Singing the words “I love you” while on the bus ride home.
Let Me Love You By The Ocean
Let me love you by the ocean,
let me love you by the sea,
let the love letters I put in bottles
wash up at your feet.
Let me love you on the coast,
let me love you on the shore,
sun, sand, seashells, and the salty breeze
whisper I am yours.
Do you like to sing? I need the recordings of many voices to make a group chorus in a song I just wrote called “A Beer With A Friend”. Don’t be shy. It’s a jaunty, pub song, so beautiful singing voices are not required (or even encouraged). For more information on how to help, click here. I greatly appreciate anyone who takes the time. I’ll be sure to credit all contributors when I post the finished product. Thank you, lovelies! — KC
