Build A Song

Build a song on

foundations of rock

jazz blues & soul.

frame it with

guitar sky open

to hope.

leave roof

rafters bare

to the moon.

plant grass all

around and hear

how all grows

from the flow

of your soul

to the stars

and God’s

front porch

above  you.

Is that 55? Words, I mean? I DO know it’s Friday!!

And that some angel will buy that amp from me on eBay soon.

Sorry amp pic is a bit fuzzy — Blue Bunny’s been into his cups again.  :)

“Love Will Be The Answer” — Lyrics

heavens_power

1.
if you search the moon and stars for clues to who you are, if you search the wind,..
if you ask the morning why it skips across the sky, ask where you begin…
how can it be, you are here with me?
I can see these questions point in only one direction, I believe…

Love will be the answer
Love will be the dancer
so light on its feet, giving and sweet
Love will be the answer
Love will be the answer to everything

2.
in this miracle of light where we are shining bright, in the arms of spring
hear the music of the leaves up laughing in the trees, hear the angels sing
feel heaven’s power in the mountains, in the flowers
anything we wonder in the sunlight and the thunder we will see…

Love will be the answer
Love will be the dancer
so light on its feet, giving and sweet
Love will be the answer
Love will be the answer to everything

3.
speaking gently to yourself and everybody else go dancing through your day
take the children by the hand and you will understand everything’s okay
sailing by the chart in the ocean of your heart,
anything you’re searching all you need to know for certain is one thing…

Love will be the answer
Love will be the dancer
so light on its feet, giving and sweet
Love will be the answer
Love will be the answer to everything

All I know. All I know.
Love’s the way to go.
Do you see? Do you see?
Love will set us free.
Love will set us free.
Love. Love. Love. Love!

~~ end of newest lyrics.

Heading out to the studio Right Now to sing them, whooohoooo.

Snapped that photo down the street a couple hours ago.  That biggest bloom is about 1.5″ across.

I think it’s jasmine?  On a spray-type vine, and for sure loaded with heaven’s power — like you!

Happy Sweetness, y’all!!

The great news… my FF55 is ready to post next Thursday, 5:55 TEXAS Time!!

Which is the same as Tulsa time, I do believe?  Which I’ve been living on.

Anyway..

I SO wanted to snag YAHTZEEEEEE at G-Man’s yesterday to win fame and glory, but…

that would’ve meant taking an Internet break in the recording studio.

Luckily, I came to my senses and said,

“Jannie, you’re here to sing. So sing!

The 55 will keep another 7 days.”

 

So I sang.

 

And the 55 is keeping just fine so far.

While Captain George was mixing, I did pop over to G-Man’s to comment from my iPhone, tho! Good Jannie!!

:)

Sooooooo.

E-MAIL ME with the subject line “Jannie Loves Me” if you want the MP3 from last night’s session.

A WHOLE BRAND-NEW-OFF-THE-SHELF JANNIE song!

With George’s 3 guitar parts, Michael’s bass and…

Jannie singing to 150,000 peeps.

(That’s what I was picturing in my mind as I sang.)

I was opening for The Rolling Stones.

:)

Wait, no!  THEY were opening for ME.  Yeah, that’s it!

:)

:)

:)

And how cool – my photo of our girl-kitty Mieshka in the late afternoon sun inspired me to share my harmony evolution.
