    the above link is so anyone can listen to the sketch of the music... the lyrics at this point are as follows...

    (note: trust me, you *really* wouldnt want me to try to "sing" along to what i'm doing (just trust me, lol, i cant sing) in MY head I can sort of hear a good ballad singer doing it well... i was hoping the words follow the music enough one got the idea, but, that could easily be just because i wrote the piano part(s) and they suggested the lyrics that developed... in MY mind they are "married", I realize it prolly isnt like that for everyone else...


    all critiques welcome, good bad or ugly, LMAO


    SCARLET TEARS (c) 2012 - Sean "SEDstar" Duvall
    =========================================================


    Lay-in her 'n watch-in', You, safe and sleep-in'
    Helps me keep for-got-ten, Places that I've been ...

    Dont ask..... Dont ask...

    Sit-tin' here and hop-in', that you con-tin-ue sleep-in'
    I'm scared if you a-wak-en, you'll not-ice that I'm cry-in'

    (but) Dont ask..... Dont ask...

    watch me keep a sec-ret well that you dont have to know

    (chorus)
    Dont ask... I Dont wanna tell... Scar-let, swirlin' all aroun'...
    Dont ask... I Dont wanna tell... Red mist, fallin' to the groun'...
    Dont ask, 'n I wont have to tell... you-oo-oo-oo

    (pause)

    mov-ies in my mind, too ter-ri-ble to see,
    sleep or when a-wak-ened, night-mare just for me

    (but) Dont ask..... Dont ask...

    hope you nev-er won-der 'cos then I'd have to tell
    dont think i could lie to you I think its just as well

    (but) Dont ask..... (please) Dont ask...

    used to be a mon-ster and it was not long a-go

    (chorus)
    Dont ask... I Dont wanna tell... Scarlet, swirlin' all aroun'...
    Dont ask... I Dont wanna tell... Red mist, fallin' to the groun'...
    Dont ask... 'n I wont have to tell... you-oo-oo-oo

    (pause)

    Used to wait on hill-top, hid-den out out of sight
    no one ever saw me, used to wait all night

    (but) Dont ask..... Dont ask...

    man-u-fac-tured thun-der, roll a-cross the sky
    brill-iant burst of light-ning there was no place they could hide

    (but) Dont ask... (please) Dont ask...

    think I've seen the Dev-il an' he looks a lot like me

    (chorus)
    Dont ask... I Dont wanna tell... Scarlet, swirlin' all aroun'
    Dont ask... I Dont wanna tell... Red rain, fallin' to the groun'...
    Dont ask, 'n I wont have to tell... you-oo-oo-oo

    (sudden end)

    Excellent work, Sean! It's great to see (hear) you back in action! What are you using as your DAW, my friend?

    Cheers,
