It's Time to Get Up

January 11, 2008 5:41 PM

A short song about sleeping in and not having someone to rely on.

I've always been a little tired,
Ain't easy getting up on my own,
I've always had trouble finding
my way to sleep when I'm alone.

I know you'll wake me,
I know, I know you'll wake me,
I know, I know, I know, I know,
When the morning, it comes around.

Great, again. I remember you said something like you were just learning to play guitar, but you have a great "musicality" in your songs. What you play might be really simple, but every part works very well with the rest and the whole is quite nice.

Thanks a lot, micay. I've appreciated all your comments a lot! I like what you said about it working as a whole, because I'm not so sure about the guitar that comes in at the end... what do you (or anybody) think?

I liked this a lot. Genuine.

I can imagine you coming up with that riff and getting a big "I just found an awesome!" grin on your face.

I like this very much, including the guitar at the end, actually -- I think your instinct is correct that there's got to be more layering there, because the lyrics essentially require it. If you aren't familiar with it already, you may want check out Roy Harper's "Hey Francesca," which is the one song that's probably taught me the most about what you can do with a very short song and this kind of elegant simplicity.

What micayetoca & mm said - there's an earthy elegance to your playing that is so appealing, and, for a n00b like me, really inspiring. Great work.

Jesus, how did I miss this one? This is fantastic. Slow, lazy (in a good way), deep. And I have a special affinity for scratchy recording qualities, too.

Off to listen to your other songs now!
