Rose of Adelaide Town

Week 12!
A hectic week + drinking + a solo gig on Friday means I tried to whip this one out late on Sunday.
Will definitely re-visit this one soon when my voice isn't hacked and I've arranged a couple other parts to fill it out without stepping on the guitar part.
So not totally satisfied w/ the 'arrangement' / 'production' - but I'm super happy with the lyrics and music itself.

Almost 1/4 the way through the year and really setting these few basic 'steps' has helped heaps - I'm learning more and more about the sound of my microphones and rooms and I think the acoustic guitar tone in this song is my favourite I've got this year. I'll keep the track and give it a proper mix and master in the full arrangement.

Note - my dad actually came up with the 'rose of Adelaide town' lyric, in a different context, and I found myself singing it so I put it in there with his permission smile

For Grace -
Rose - Of Adelaide town
You don't know what you've got going down.
Ya got style and Grace - your smile, your face
It drives me wild
It's like nothing before
At night you come alive
Taking it back to your place or mine.

Rose of Adelaide town
Sometimes you get down
But you'll come back around.
Coz you've been through pain
But you smile again -
You've so much love to give
It's the best of you.

So I write these lines
With you in mind, and on my mind
Too much of the time.
Too much of the time.
Just a little too much
Just a little too much
Of the time.

I know I can take it, is that all it costs?
Just a little too much?
But too much of what?
Too much of the real thing
Too much of a good thing - is never enough.
So when it get's rough
I know you can take it, I think you might like it.
Anything goes.
Only if you say so.

Rose of Adelaide town.

Good to see you're settling in to things. things like arrangement and production, or the lack thereof, is what makes weeklybeats feel more real.
