A Practiced Speech

It is amazing to me how songs evolve. I have been working on a new song this week...based on a remark I heard from someone about someone else that I hardly know. So I can't tell you how close I came to actually telling a story that is true for that real person, but I can tell you that I tapped into some old feelings of my own that I haven't thought about directly until I wrote the song. What an interesting process!! Stewing over a concept, expanding on the idea, then realizing only after the fact what was really happening in the creation of the song.....ie, thinking I was writing about THAT person, and realizing, it was still about ME.

Well, gosh, I guess it is ALL about ME, or so some say....LOL!!!

The name of the song is 'A Practiced Speech'. It is not finished yet....the guitar part needs some more interest, but the words and melody are there....
