Joe: I had the simple chords for verse and chorus.... but that was all. Mos came over and we bounced around some ideas for what the song could be about... started with a war theme, then went to carnivals (and carneys) and finally landed on this sweet little love song lol. I call this a FAWM victory for sure! We're gonna try to get one more before the day is done...
Mosno: Joe played me the recording he had of the music, and wanted to have some kind of "Ahhs" in the chorus, so I started to try that out and "Anna" seemed to be the best fit. We also like Joe's original line of "What are you waiting for" as the main theme of the song. So we started off pretty dark, about a break up, but then it smoothly transitioned into a love song. We altered some of the themes that we originally had to fit more into a love story instead of a break up.
I think this came out VERY well, considering the recording is a one-take jam, because that's how we roll..sometimes! 😀. We hope you enjoy the tune.
You can wait for a fortuneteller
To see a sign in her crystal ball
But you’ve got to have ^eyes wide ^open
If you want to see et all
We could _______ forever, never get
What we’re asking/hoping for
But I’m right here waiting/willing
What you waiting for
You can wait for stars aligning
Shining bright when the night is clear
Just because there’s clouds and daylight
Doesn’t mean the stars arent there
You can wait for new moon dreaming
Show you signs tell you what to do
But you gotta wake up every morning
If you wanna make a dream come true
