The original lyrics to “Endless Rain”?

July 28th, 2010

First of all, no part of my current conscious self would really fathom that there are/were “original lyrics” to Endless Rain.  I was browsing through my file archives and I stumbled upon what I called “leftovers” — ideas I had come up with in songs that didn’t make the cut.  Oddly enough, I had apparently used this text file to originally pen Endless Rain, and there it was — a full song (properly punctuated which is an indication that I have “completed” a song), but completely unrecognizable.  I guess this can count as a notch in the span of my musical enterprise?

Anyway, I really do not remember these words.  I cannot even be certain that they went with the music as it goes now, but the chorus is exactly the same.  I would say these lyrics are much more direct (which is probably why I would have changed them) and much more deeply saddening …

So for you major fan(s) out there, a juicy morcel of the Jeremy Tharp historical archive:

I’ll sit here and watch your eyes a while
And hope the simple thought of them makes me smile
I just can’t fathom you not here one day
Nonetheless the time is here you’ll go away

I just told you goodbye for life
And every time I think of you I cry
Even when you see my face it’s not my pain you’ll find
The tears don’t fall on the outside

Endless rain always falls down on the inside
I escape always to burn out of my skin’s mire

Only your fate can save me
I want your hand to raise me
I can’t hold on, I’ll go insane
And I’ll drown in this endless rain

I’m heavy on the way you like to sing
And the way you laugh is everything
If there is one thing I couldn’t want more
It’d he way you look at the world

I’ll never know where I am or you are
And every thought about you will break my heart
I’m simply captivated by you
And lost in the hope of if you knew

Endless rain always falls down on the inside
I escape always to burn out of my skin’s mire

Only your fate can save me
I want your hand to raise me
I can’t hold on, I’ll go insane
And I’ll drown in this endless rain

Endless rain always falls down on the inside
I escape always to burn out of my skin’s mire

Only your fate can save me
I want your hand to raise me
I can’t hold on, I’ll go insane
And I’ll drown in this endless rain

Happy Thanksgiving!  (for those who celebrate it)  🙂

This week’s podcast is another of my originals: “Endless Rain” off my album “Heaven.”

As usual: me on my acoustic, in my studio, no editing, recorded on Sony ICD-SX700, blah, blah, blah …

Periodical acoustic podcast: “Walls Of A Dream” by me

November 13th, 2009

Even though I decided to do two songs per week moving forward, this week I’m only doing one as my schedule is a little hectic.

The song I did is one of my favorites that I wrote called “Walls of a Dream,” and it’s off my album “Heaven.”

And, as usual, this is just me on my acoustic, in my studio, recorded on my Sony ICD-SX700 digital voice recorder, no modifications other than trimming at the beginning and end.

Oh, be cautioned: There are large fluctuations in volume  😀

Amid dire requests for me to update my website, since I can’t seem to do it without strict coercion, I have uploaded lo-fi versions of Heaven and Hell for everyone to enjoy (or abhor). For my next albums, rather than write something specifically, I am writing songs at random with certain projects in mind. Once I have enough songs for an album that make sense together, I will start recording. This way, I am free to write any song without worrying about fitting it on an album, and I can maintain a greater musical continuity throughout the album when I do record it.

I will keep everyone posted (hopefully) with any major status changes. Also, I hope soon to actually put stuff on the other sections of this site that I have not yet done anything with. I still haven’t posted the picture of my newest guitar.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Perhaps soon there will be something worth your reading time written here.

The songs are done ! The songs are done !

Finally all 26 songs for Heaven and Hell are written and recorded. Now it’s just a matter of designing the graphics for the covers and putting any finishing touches on the recordings. Heaven and Hell will come to fruition in less than a month.

Ok I am more than half way on Heaven and Hell now so all is well. I’ve decided to take a short hiatus from writing and recording because I am afraid I will rush things. As it stands right now, the album is becoming a magnificent thematic piece, and I don’t want to jeopardize that. In comparison, I’ve already written the same number of songs that I wrote for It All Comes Out, and I still have to write as many as are on Triad, so it’s kind of cumbersome. On a happier note, however, I am extremely optimistic on my vocals as through a combination of improved equipment and thought-out retakes mixed with an actual attempt to improve my voice, the vocal tracks actually are tolerable and in most cases sound good. At any rate, I hope to resume writing within a week or two time frame. Who knows, maybe stuff will still come although I’m not trying.

I’ve also tentatively “imagined” a release date of August 3. The reason for this is my previous releases have all been on Tuesdays, corresponding to typical album release practice. However, the first album was released on the first of the month, the second album on the second, and August 3 just so happens to be a Tuesday corresponding to the rate at which I am writing songs (to complete the album.) Let’s hope I am not put into shock during my upcoming move from Morgantown.

Ok it appears as though my website is officially underway.

The most immediate update is that I am working on a two-cd project entitled “Heaven and Hell.” I have been working on this since about August (2003), and it may take quite a while to complete. Who knows ? I have been known to do binge writing. Nonetheless, you can keep up with this project here.

The other project that is underway is that I am recording bass tracks for my old releases. As you can see on my albums page, I have recorded two albums to date. Both were released on mp3.com which has since been dissolved. However, the official releases were It All Comes Out October 1, 2002 and Triad April 2, 2003. You can check these out on the albums page.

Any other news would include my hoping to start playing a few open mics, maybe get in a band. We shall see I suppose.
