January 21, 2018 So Far Away I wake up in the morning And go through the motions of a brand new day Pour some coffee, read the paper I try to keep up with what the world has to say After breakfast, then a shower I let the cat out so he can do his thing Than after that, I settle back Get my head together for what the day will bring But what’s wrong with this picture What seems so out of place Can it be that you’re not here with me I can’t turn around and see your face Chorus You’re so far away On the other side of the world, it seems If I close my eyes, I can see your smile But I can’t touch what I can’t reach You’re so far away It seems like an eternity ’Til I’ll be home again Back in your arms again Than you won’t be - So Far Away from me Another day is over The sun will close her eyes and go to sleep But I’ll kneel down and pray, that you’re okay And ask the Lord your soul to keep Seems like every passing minute I hear you calling out my name But it’s so crystal clear, that you’re not really here I’m so all alone, it’s a crying shame - that

Two Story House - Chet Fortune This is an original song that I wrote about 5 years ago and posted h... read moreere with just guitar - but never performed with other musicians. Had a chance to do it live - and it rocked. Hope you enjoy! Two Story House (Chorus) It's a two story house with lovely shutters - white and though they're both at home - they're alone tonight She's in the bedroom - on the second floor He's two steps from walking out the front door (He Says) Believe me when I tell you - I'm a family man and I'm bringing home the bacon - the best that I can But even a family man - need some time alone Though to hear her tell it - I'm never at home (She Says) If you look at me, you'll see - I'm an ideal wife Making ideal plans - for our ideal life But he says l'm always up in his face Now - even a house with all these rooms, just doesn’t have enough space (Chorus) Well it's a two story house - not a one room shack But they've both said things that they can never take back And they wonder where all the love has gone In this two story house - that's no longer a home (He Says) Now this two story house is cold and dark We were once so together - now we're so far apart and though we share the same space - and a King size bed I'd rather find somewhere else to lay my head (She Says) As I walk this house from room to room With a heart so heavy - and so filled with gloom I wonder how he can just ignore Love's vacancy sign - that's hangin’ on the front door (Chorus) Well it's a two story house - that used to be so bright and though they’re both at home - they’re alone tonight And they wonder where all the love has gone In this two story house - that's no longer a home Where has all the love gone!

Every Year, Every Christmas - This is a song by Luther Vandross - which only gets played during this time of year, so it will probably not be too familiar, but great song. Rush job by me to try to get it in before Christmas is over, so I apologize for the mix (gain overdrive - again - sorry DOC - one day I'll get it right). But it's a wonderful song by an incredible artist - so here is my C effort for Luther's A++ brilliance!!

Stubborn Kinda Fella - Chet Fortune Marvin Gaye's first solo hit, "Stubborn Kind of Fellow", was released in September of 1962, reaching No. 8 on the R&B chart and No. 46 on the Billboard Hot 100. This song paved the way for Marvin's subsequent hits like the dance song, "Hitch Hike", peaking at No. 30 on the Hot 100 chart and "Pride and Joy, which" became Marvin Gaye's first top ten single after its release in 1963. Marvin Gaye inspired me and is one of the reasons for who I am as an artist and a musician today!!

Trying Times - Chet Fortune This started out as just a poem that I wrote a while ago - until I decided to make it the lyrics to a song. Since my musicianship is mediocre at best, I put out a call for help, and the Universe sent me two of the most amazing musicians on the planet: Mark Hall - in England, and HG Schmitz - in Germany - and the two of them have helped turn my lyrics into a work of art - Trying Times I posted this before as just an audio post, but current events and world conditions made me think it was time for a revisit, so I added a video and here is one of my proudest collaborations. Thank you so much, Mark and HG. Trying Times Trying times, Trying Times, These are the Trying Times - - - Time spent trying to find time Finding time to try Trying to find who we are, Trying to find out why. Trying times, Trying times, These are such Trying times - - - Time to stand up tall and live, Or lay down small and die, Time to look within ourselves find out where the answer lies. Trying times, Trying times, These are the Trying Times - - - Trying, trying, young men dying, In far off wars in far off lands Trying times, Trying times, These are such trying times How can men who rule this world Be so selfish, have such greed Close their eyes so they won't see Turn their backs on those who need Time for us to look again - To look past war, and hate and waste Time to learn to care and share Time to let love take their place………….. Trying times, Trying times Senseless and denying times Can't we open up our hearts Can't we try to find a way Does anybody care that Love's in need of Love today Trying times, Trying times, Time to stop the crying times Time to stand up tall and live Or lay down small and die Time to look within ourselves And learn that there the answer lies Trying Times!

Love Won't Let Me Wait - A Pop / Soul Ballad Classic - written by a very good friend of mine - also of "Sideshow", Just Don't Want To Be Lonely" fame. This is probably her biggest hit song though, recorded by everybody from Nancy Wilson to Luther Vandross!

My Grown Up Christmas List The song is about a visit with Santa Claus by an adult who does not ask Santa for anything material for Christmas, but rather nothing but good things for all humanity. Composed by David Foster (music) and Linda Thompson-Jenner (lyrics), this is one of those Christmas songs that should be played all year long. Do you remember me? I sat upon your knee I wrote to you with childhood fantasies Well I'm all grown up now Can you still help somehow I'm not a child But my heart still can dream So here's my lifelong wish My grown up Christmas list Not for myself But for a world in need No more lives torn apart That wars would never start And time would heal all hearts And everyone would have a friend And right would always win And love would never end This is my grown up Christmas list What is this illusion Called the innocence of youth Maybe only in our blind belief Can we ever find the truth Ohhh No more lives torn apart That wars would never start And time would heal all hearts Everyone would have a friend And right would always win And love would never end This is my grown up Christmas list This is my only lifelong wish This is my grown up Christmas list

An original composition / collaboration between HG Schmitz - a musical and programming genius, Bernd Wollenhoefer, an amazing musician and me. A little while ago, HG sent me this amazing track and asked that I try to do something with it. It turned out to be one of my most difficulty but also one of my most rewarding musical assignments to date - - I must have tried a gazillion melodic and lyric ideas - and here is what made the cut. I hope that you enjoy! How Could You Say You Love Me How could you say you love me How could you lead me on How could you make me think our love was so strong How could you say - that moment was all that we'd ever have How can a love that felt so good Turn out so bad? Didn't you say that you had searched a lifetime And I was all you'd ever need Then how could you cut my heart in pieces Then stand there and just watch me bleed? How could you say you love me Where has the magic gone How could you be my everything But then leave me all alone Where is my sweet tomorrow How will my sadness end When will my broken heart know How to laugh and smile again Didn't you say our love would last forever That we would never say goodbye But how could you ask me to believe you When every word you whispered was a lie How can you say you love me Where has the magic gone How could you be my everything Then walk away and leave me all alone Didn't you say our love would last forever That we would never say goodbye Then how in the world can you say to me There's no more us - - there's no more you and I How Could You Say You Love Me

This is a smooth, jazzy Standard - probably popularised by Dinah Washington, who won a Grammy for her recording of it, which was later inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Here is my version of it!
