Paul's new song "KARMA COME" LISTEN NOW, HERE: http://www.reverbnation.com/paulludenia/song/19489550-karma-come-demo Forward: I am relieved, to be completed with this song and to share it with you... I know what you're thinking, "Relieved? Why relieved?" Well, normally, I would use an adjective such as "excited", "thrilled", or some other happy word, but not this time... You see, I had most of this music written before I really had an idea on what I was to sing about, but I was trying to come up with something inspirational, heartfelt, honest yet hopeful... That was until the day I saw the photo of my friend, Maggie, brutally beaten by the person she was so dearly in love with... Blood, bruises and broken bones... Her poor heart... I needed to get this out of my system, so, the music has been hijacked for this abomination instead of something more loving. I'm always disappointed when I feel I have to write a song about these types of issues - but, maybe, just maybe, it can help... Maybe it can bring attention. Maybe it can educate. Maybe it can help someone realize they are not alone. Maybe, it can stop someone from doing the same thing to someone... If I had it my way, I swear, I would only write love songs... Sigh... But, with the tremendous pain and anger I felt about this horrific event, I trudged forward, writing the lyrics as a sort-of letter to "him" (I'd rather not even type his name... So, I'll just call this unhuman being, "him"), while waiting ever-so-impatiently for Karma to come and get "him"... To do what Karma does to people who abuse other people... To do what Karma does to so-called 'men', that beat 50 year old, kind-hearted and gentle women... The lyrics touch on the fact that I accepted "him" into my circle, shook "his" hand, and loved "him" because he so dearly loved, or at least seemed to love, my wonderful, warm-hearted, kind friend, Maggie. It hurt my heart to see this - I can never truly imagine how Maggie feels, inside, as well as outside... So I did the best thing I know how to do. Write a song. And with that, I hope to bring attention to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV). Please educate yourself and learn how to stop intimate partner violence (IPV) before it begins (i.e., primary prevention) here: http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/intimatepartnerviolence/index.html Be well, and please, please, please - be kind to one another... So I can go back to writing love songs! Paul~ ---- KARMA COME by Paul Ludenia ...For Maggie... ...To him... (c) Copyright 2013+. Paul Ludenia Music. All Rights Reserved. --- 5, 4, 3, 2... Oooooh karma come, karma come, karma come Just look at what you've done With your 5 fingered gun How was I to know You were the 5, 4, 3, 2... one --I shook your hand The one you used to beat her --You're not a man Your eyes, they must've seen her --She's on the floor How could you hit a woman? Karma come, Karma come, Karma come, Karma come! She's got the tears wiped away And one day those bruises, they'll fade I'll be waiting for that precious day Karma comes to take you away... How could you raise your hand Now you're stuck in no mans land Sticks & stones may break her bones But this is your last stand --I shook your hand The one you used to beat her --You're not a man Your eyes, they must've seen her --She's on the floor How could you hit a woman? Karma come, Karma come, Karma come, Karma come! She's got the tears wiped away And one day those bruises, they'll fade Broken bones get better everyday It's got your number & It's got your name & I'll be waiting for that precious day When Karma comes to take you awayyyy... When Karma comes to take you away... SOLO (Tony Olivas) She's got the tears wiped away And one day those bruises, they'll fade Broken bones get better everyday It's got your number & It's got your name & I'll be waiting for that precious day When Karma comes to take you awayyyy... When Karma comes to take you away... She's got the tears wiped away And one day those bruises, they'll fade Broken bones are better everyday It's got your number & It's got your name & I'll be waiting for that precious day When Karma comes to take you awayyyy... When Karma comes to take you away...

Placing pen to paper again Hoping these will be the words That'll strike a chord and let me in Scratchin' out another verse Prayin' this will be the one That'll shift your gears out of reverse Just another oldies song Proving, I may not be right But I sure as hell aint wrong ***And she says Play those old songs one more time Strum the melodies of days gone by Sing the memories that make me cry ***But then I Take a deep breath and play a new tune I struggled writing just for you To tear down your walls - break right through Tomorrows what I'm looking forward to. I can feel you're about to crack Cause if you're never looking forward You'll turn your neck and break your back I know the past is more your scene But if you don't listen to me You'll never know just what I mean Just another oldies song Proving, I may not be right But I sure is hell aint wrong CHORUS solo What I'm trying to say Is your history looks darker when you won't let in the light of today CHORUS
