CJ Bargamian - 28 Only 'til Night

28 GenBooooooo Comcast! OK, my internet service is back up, but it is intermittent and I’m very irritated. But the good news is that A) I have 2 songs posting today, and B) We had a great time playing the Grant Park Festival yesterday. So YAY for that!

So, this is Saturday’s song, and I’m posting it on Sunday. Sorry dudes. Anyway, this song sprang from another old guitar part that I’ve had in my head for a long time. I’ve tried playing it (and recording it) a few times before, but never got it right and never wrote lyrics for it. So, like many of these other songs, it seemed a perfect candidate for this project. I stripped it down to some nice acoustic guitar and a couple of vocal tracks – as you may have noticed, I’ve favored that low-key sound for a few of the past songs here. Maybe I’m just in that kind of mood?

Once I recorded the guitar part, I wrote some lyrics and recorded the main vocal track pretty quickly. The song is about how much I enjoy my special ladyfriend kissing me goodbye on mornings when she has to get up earlier than I do, and how I then look forward to her kissing me goodnight later on that day. Sappy, I know. But hell, I just love knowing that she’s the first person I usually see in the morning and the last person I usually see at night. It’s nice.

I then did some harmony vocals and that was it.

Instruments used:
Acoustic guitar (Seagull)

When I hear her alarm
I slightly wake
And give her one last hug
Before we start our day
I look forward to her kiss goodbye, but only ’til night
All day long I wait
To get home to her
And lay down for the night
Hold onto her tightly
I look forward to her kiss goodnight, but only ’til day
