“Keep It Up, Kiddo (Make My Year)” Rough Snippet - John Dawson and Adam Billings
one heart, two heart, too far apart. made an art of talking myself up, and created a science of banking everything on dumb luck. i’m ready for it to get cold. not because it’s too hot, but because the chill’s a real good reason, to be glad for who you’ve got. next to you. best with you. living full speed ahead and the rest with you. despite the time that I’ve spent here, make a move. make my year.
So yeah, I wrote the lyrics to this sometime in the past week as they came to me, and today Adam comes over and plays this awesome acoustic tune he wrote yesterday. We put the two together and BAM, we’ve got a song we really like and love playing. All I’ve gotta do is write a second verse, then we can record the full song. In the meantime, though, enjoy this snippet we recorded earlier on my porch. It’s the intro, verse, prechorus, and chorus: first half of the song. Hope you like it!
