A Cup of You – Blues

A Cup of You

It’s been a while
Since I’ve seen your face
You’ve disappeared
Without a trace
Has somebody come
To take my place?
I just hope
That aint the case

I need a cup of you darling
I need you real bad
I need a cup of you baby
You’re making me sad
I wish I knew
All the things you do
All I know is….
I need a cup of you

I aint seen you
In a week of days
I need you now
I miss your ways
My minds gone blank
I’m in a haze
Missing you
Is my latest craze

I need a cup of you darling
I need you real bad
I need a cup of you baby
You’re making me sad
I wish I knew
All the things you do
All I know is….
I need a cup of you

A silly little blues I made today. That is, wrote lyrics and music and then recorded today. This is the first time I cranked up the studio in over a year. It felt good to record, though I made myself a little hoarse. This is very very rough – purposefully rough. Straight up vocals with no processing. Not much different from a basement tape in the 1980s except it’s all digital.

Although I play and write all types of music this is a little different from my usual. Listen to some of what I have posted on my music page and I think you can tell the difference. Still, things like this are fun.

      Thanks Zee. This is pretty rough and my voice is awful, but i bet if i had a drummer playing with me you’d say, “OK, I know what he was trying to do.” Besides my voice this was all recorded one line at a time with a retro-synth called a Mini Moog. If you go to the “Trent’s Music” page you’ll see a picture of me in front of my Mini. Even if it was different, I hope you liked it!

      Hi Jackie. I wasn’t originally planning on making the cup sad but when it turned out that way I thought it was fitting. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
