    I just made a demo of my new song, "Show Me Why." It's not really VH-inspired, but it's definitely influenced by Rich Wyman (that keyboardist who had Eddie play on tracks and lay down some solos for his '96 album.)

    Anyway, showmewhy.mp3 is in my folder on the Links' Freedrive account:
    www.freedrive.com
    username: vhlinks
    password: vhlinks

    And it's also up here: http://www.vhvault.com/1989/demos/mp3/showmewhy.mp3

    If you have a decently fast connection, check it out and tell me what you think. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Here's the words:

    You took all those lessons
    You do some great impressions
    And the way you sound, it's not real
    But it's not at your own discretion
    If you think I'm only there to
    Judge you, critically compare you
    Cheer for who I hear though you
    That's where you are wrong! Can you...
    Show me why, oh, why are you trying to hide?
    It's not who you're trying to be
    But who are you on the inside?
    Let me show you why it's the side that you never show
    Not the fool you're trying to be
    That fascinates me the most.

    It's like a permanent charade
    Impersonate and persuade
    It's a game you're playing in
    It's a game you always win!
    You've got it all worked out
    You sound like anyone you want
    But you, you're playing let's-pretend
    Oh baby, I intend to make you

    Show me why, oh, why are you trying to hide?
    You can defy gravity for a while
    But who are you on the inside?
    Let me show you why it's the side that you never show
    Not the fool you're trying to be
    That fascinates me the most

    So when you go
    Go a little farther
    And if you're not sure
    Baby, just show me why, yeah yeah yeah...

    (Keyboard Solo)

    So when you go,
    Go a little farther
    Then if you're not sure
    Baby, just show me why!

    well, i didn't download your mp3 (too slow connection) but one word to this line:

    "Not the fool you're trying to be
    That fascinates me the most. "

    why's that?
    all the world's a stage ... no?

    cheers,

    Hmm...not sure I understand the question. I do agree that all the world's a stage. However, I really value when people can have a consistent sense of self, and not put on new faces all the time.

    So, this song is about being yourself...or more specifically, about someone who is always trying to be someone other than himself. So in the line you quoted, I'm telling him that I like him better for himself than for any other person he tries to be. "It's the side that you never show, not the fool you're trying to be, that fascinates me the most."

    Now I'll stop with the deep mental stuff. Being intense usually doesn't work for me!

    Thanks for checking it out, homeunit!

    I havent had a chance to download the song yet, but those lyrics are really strong. I really like the feel of the lyrics.
