TS@aW #19: De Nuh Nuh Neeh Neeh Nuh ‘N Nee

Aaaaah I’m late, I’m VERY late!

My only excuse is that I was out for most of last week with the fabtabulous Ryan Sheridan.  Ryan is a mate from way back.  We did a squad of gigs together back in the day to the proverbial two men and a dog.  It was really lovely to hook up again, particularly as he’s selling out venues all over the country  ;-)   Helps me sell CDs!  Anyways – check out his debut album, ‘The Day You Live Forever’.  Some great tunes on there and he gives good gig too, so if you’re in a position to catch him, do.

So, to get back to the tune, it’s a poppy, summery, breezy concoction.  I’m still not happy with the lyric, but I’ve been stumped on it for the last few days so it’s one for the ‘further honing’ file.  Actually, that’s kind of the case for the whole of TS@aW really, whether I like the lyric at the moment or not, but that’s beside the point.  More than most of the other tunes though, this one feels ‘unfinished’ somehow, but I’ve no idea what the next step is.

Answers on a postcard  ;-)

Here’s the lyric:

I am 3 parts animal, to 4 parts mentalist,
I am diving in waters deep and I cannot swim.

When I am singing I am dancing I am moving,
I am crying I am loving I am proving,
I am living I am bursting at the seams with hope.

Oh…

I am floating on waves of the love of strangers,
I am waiting until I recognise you to shout.

When you’re down and out and trying to make head or tail of this,
Remember you are not alone in the darkness,
Music can bring you home before you lose yourself.

Oh…

I am lost,
I am found,
I am here,
I am not,
I am gone,
I am back,
I am ready to start again.

I can hear my song on the radio, de nuh nuh neeh neeh nuh ‘n nee.
Those pretty summer dresses flowing in and out and all around me.

When I am singing I am dancing I am moving,
I am crying I am loving I am proving,
I am living I am bursting at the seams with hope.

Oh…
