Chelsea

Some stuff for you to browse thru, Chelsea. Very different levels of production (keep your volume knob handy!) Some have pretty solid structure with full lyrics, others are just motifs looking for development. I’m open to considering changes to anything here that might inspire you. And once I get a sense of which songs intrigue you, I’ll be better at curating them for you.
*Some are me singing female lyrics – yikes! ;-)) Just working titles for most of the instrumentals.

1- I WILL RISE (no lyrics)


2- BESIDE YOU (I have a version with full lyrics but would like to change them.)


3- SOLO PIANO theme (no lyrics)


4- BACK TO WHERE WE WERE (full lyrics, feels universal to me, good for sync?)

Lyrics here

BACK TO WHERE WE WERE

Safe and sound
we were so safe and sound
all of our friends would say
you’re gonna grow old and gray together

But bit by bit
Been losing it bit by bit
Running so close to empty
Looking for signs that say if we can

(Chorus)
Pick up our broken pieces
Fill up our empty spaces
Lift all our fallen dreams
And bring back those lovers’ scenes
That live somewhere in our hearts
To heal all our wounded parts
And lead back to where we were
Just might back to where we were

Cold hard wind
Stirring up doubts within
Building up banks of sorrow
Going so deep we don’t know

If our fate might turn
Give us a chance to learn
Maybe leave scars of wisdom
Telling us where we’ve come from when we

(Chorus 2)
Pick up our broken pieces
Fill up our empty places
Rise from our fallen dreams
And bring back those lovers’ scenes
That live somewhere in our hearts
And heal all our wounded parts
And lead back to where we were

(Chorus 3)
Can we pick up our broken pieces
Fill up our empty spaces
Lift all our fallen dreams
And bring back those lovers’ scenes
That live still within our hearts
And heal all our wounded parts
And lead back to where we were
Just might back to where we were


5a – JUST BEYOND MY SIGHT (no lyrics)

5b – With the lyrics I got, universal again, could work for female?

Lyrics here

JUST BEYOND MY SIGHT

Found you in my dreams again
But nothing I could do
I twisted like a matador
But daylight ran me thru
Stealing you away once more
At least until tonight
While all around I feel you near
Just beyond my sight
Yes, all around I feel you there
Just beyond my sight

Will you think of me today
And wonder who I am
Close your eyes and see a face
Feel a gentle hand
Somewhere warm within our hearts
We know we’ll get this right
Cause all around I feel you near
Just beyond my sight
Yes, all around I feel you there
Just beyond my sight

Yeah, I’ll search through all this emptiness
If it takes all my life
Cause all around I feel you near
Just beyond my sight
Yes, all around I feel you near
Just beyond my sight


6a – TO MY KNEES (power duet, without chorus, very old production)

6b – With a chorus I added later because I still sense potential with this one. (Wedding song??) *BUT, I’m singing both parts in the chorus, untuned, way beyond my range – sorry! ;-))

Lyrics here

TO MY KNEES

Take my hands inside of yours
And walk me on the floor
Hold me in your arms just right
And move me soft and sure
A whisper in my ear, a kiss
The way it’s meant to be
Only you, only you for me

Dancing with you now like this
I’ve never felt so strong
Yes, everything I’ll ever need
Is right here in my arms
And anybody watching now
From miles away could see
Only you, only you for me

(Chorus)
I was so blind, now such colors I see
Yeah, I was so empty now how I believe
Out of the silence came sweet symphonies
Your love brings me to my knees

When you look into the eyes of love
It’s just something that you know
You don’t know why and you can’t explain
But you’re never letting go
Yes, I could find you in a million stars –
You’d be all I would see!
Only you, only you for me
Only you, only you for me
Only you, only you for me

I was so blind now such colors I see
(Only you for me)
I was so empty now how I believe
Out of the silence came sweet symphonies
Your love brings me to my knees
Your love brings me to my knees
Yes, your love brings me to my knees
To my knees, yeah
Your love brings me to my knees


7- IF I COULD BE YOUR HERO (no lyrics)


8- OVER YOU (This was actually short-listed for a Diana Krall CD. Feels like a classic tune to me. Needs new production.)


DOIN IT (With You) A fun tune with a simple little video. Something keeps pulling me back to this one – have a few different versions.
