Bandcamp Friday Friends!


It’s another Bandcamp Friday! What a great day to pick-up The Salacious Crumbles‘  pay-what-you-want EP, “Carbonite,” music by a bunch of our Social Justice Bards, AND my new solo Halloween track, “All The Pretty Horses (Drowning Song)”!

Folks with new stuff since last Bandcamp Friday:

More Friends and Coworkers!

Second FAWM song, 2020

I Said It First
Madison Metricula Roberts
Key: A


Intro:
A B D A

Verse 1:
A
You know I said I loved you first
B
With you lying on my back
D Bm
Your arms wrapped tight around me
D A
And your cock against my ass

A
I could have said sooner
B
But the time was never right
D Bm
It didn't seem matter though
D A
When you held me through the night


Chorus 1:
G
I knew that you'd say it back
D
I knew that you'd agree
A F#m
I know your mind and see your heart
G D A B D A
When you speak silently


Verse 2:
A
Yeah we had such fun together
B
So many toys to try
D Bm
A sense that time went on and on
D A
My patient body high

A
But hours always dwindled
B
No matter what our plans
D Bm
I wish that I had known
D A
It was the last time we'd hold hands


Chorus 1:
G
I knew that you'd say it back
D
I knew that you'd agree
A F#m
I know your mind and see your heart
G D A B D A
When you speak silently


Verse 3:
A
There's trouble now between us
B
Nothing comes for free
D Bm
Frustrated tears and lonely fears
D A
Have reached an apogee

A
I wrote it down, I typed it up
B
And voiced it there to you
D Bm
My lover on the PC screen
D A
I know we won't pull through


Chorus 1:
G
I knew that you'd say it back
D
I knew that you'd agree
A F#m
I know your mind and see your heart
G D A B D A
When you speak silently


Verse 4:
A
My preemptive playfulness
B
A tone to set with you
D Bm
To let go parts that hurt me most
D A
The spite that could accrue

A
I hope we'll both be happier
B
I hope we'll be all right
D Bm
I hope that we'll have fun again
D A
Next time we reunite


Chorus 2:
G
I hope that you'll say it back
D
I hope that you'll agree
A F#m
I know your mind and see your heart
G D A
When you speak silently

Outro:
A
I knew that you'd say it back
B
I knew that you'd agree
D Bm
I know your mind and see your heart
G D A B D A
So don't speak silently

FAWM! First song up

This one is called “Peril on the Sea,” loosely inspired by the hymn and a recent breakup! I’m really happy with the song!

See the FAWM entry or below for lyrics and chords!

Peril on the Sea
Madison Metricula Roberts
Key: A

Intro:
Amaj7 Gmaj7
x2

Verse 1:
Amaj7 Gmaj7
Danceband on an ocean liner
Dmaj7 D
we're playing hard but we're not headliners
Amaj7 C
I am like you and you are like me
D7sus2 Fmaj7
we'll keep playing but we're sinking slowly
Bm11/E
And I more in common
Amaj7 G Amaj7
with those in peril on the sea

Verse 2:
Amaj7 Gmaj7
It started out with gentle sailing
Dmaj7 D
But winter water sent our hearts and heads swaying
Amaj7 C
Once the wave crashed and forced us hard to our knees
D7sus2 Fmaj7
we faced ice between us, the frozen jagged debris
Bm11/E
And I knew I belonged there
Amaj7 G Amaj7
with those in peril on the sea


Verse 3:
Amaj7 Gamj7
I see now we never should have started
Dmaj7 D
With such high hopes but our heart's course uncharted
Amaj7 C
I put my trust in your role as band lead
D7sus2 Fmaj7
But you didn't tell me when and changed to a new key
Bm11/E
I am not different to you
Amaj7 G Dmaj7 Amaj7
than those in peril on the sea
Dmaj7 Amaj7
The sea
G D
The sea

Asus2 A
