Blow Up The Sun

it's a love song... really!
I conceived the rhythm and melody of this song while sitting at a red light. The left turn signal sounds like a 4/4 (or 2/2) time beat, but I made it a 3/4 in my mind just for fun... and out came this song. The middle bridge is really aped from another song of mine, Control, then the whole 1st verse of Control was re-aped for Only A Couple of Dreams, which I recorded a whispered solo acoustic take of right before recording the original Just Being recording... so you kinda see part of the process here, that's why I'm saying all this... anyway, the lyrics have duality: imagine a man talking to his girlfriend/wife over the phone while she's in the hospital, trying to sleep, and you get the idea.
Dedicated to April-Lynn and Jay-Lynn.

"Blow Up The Sun"

sleep / imagine you're with me
you can hear me breathe / it's not overrated
then wake / and seize the day
or sleep the day / and stay the night

fight, babe / just to survive
and whilst you thrive / we will rule the nightshift
just breathe / take my breath away
if it'll ease your pain / if you'll be all right

now part-time partners in crime
I'll take you anyway that I can get you
girl you rock my world / but I can see this getting ugly
but at least I know you'll haunt me

just take my breath away / c'mon take my breath away

help me blow up the sun
who'll help me blow up the sun?

in love / if it's only one more day
or ten thousand more days / as long as you're mine
and as long as a smile is on your pretty face
and I can warm your fears away / make everything all right

fight, baby fight / just to survive
I'll steal you / and we'll blow up the sun
girl you totally rock my world / but your lips are turning blue
i'd clone new lungs for you

so take my breath away / please take my breath away

This is awesome. It reminds me of some of the old Switchfoot music from before they got all gay.

Gunshy responds:

LOL delicious!

You really did a great job on this. The lyrics immediately pulled me in. I was really enjoying the softer part and then you blew my mind at the dist. part. I even got a bit emotional throught the song. Keep em coming!

Gunshy responds:

Thank you, kind sir!

i wasnt really cught by the song until you went distortion and told me to help you blow up the sun. i feel if you work on the non distortion part then it would be helllllaaaaa BEAST!

Gunshy responds:

thanks. i tried to keep the sound engineering of the acoustic part more like a pop song, and what it may need is to be a little more sparse.

Very good

I love it, and they told me grunge was dead!

Gunshy responds:

Lol :)

One OF the best..

Man, this is one of the greatest songs that i´ve heard in newgrounds. You sure have some talent, you can be a hit some day. I hope the best for you and keep the goos work.
