Jona sings “A Love Song for Holly”

What is harder, than playing guitar, singing, and using your feet to control bass drum pedal and hi-hat?

Playing guitar, singing and simultaneously not looking like a moronic dumbass on camera.
This worked out semi-optimal for me.

Off to fame and glory

Off to fame and glory!

I will try the same procedure with daylight as soon as possible.
Meaning when I figured out how to feel comfortable in front of that asshole of a camera.
I truly admire people who possess the innate ability of treating a camera like a piece of

I am actually pretty impressed with myself. I managed to acquire some very useful skills in video editing and converting.
Everything is going to be easier from this point on in that department.

Except for the fact that I still am not able to hold my emotions at bay, when singing my stuff.
Sounds inconsequential, but to the contrary it messes with what I actually want to sing or play.
Somehow I still start beating my guitar, instead of playing or my voice gets ahead of itself.

Well, but that set of facts is for Future-Jona to deal with. The present version is seriously tired.

This was my weekend.

 

 

Lyrics

how long did I had to wait
for a stray to pause and say
could it be you wanna play?
Ah, well indeed that’s all I crave

telling’ all the world that I love you
I am thinking’ that ain’t true
saw you flouncing down the avenue
suddenly all the lights and lamps turn blue
all the lights and lamps turn blue

oh lady come and dance with
live the life and love I leave
Lady come just dance with me
you’ll be the only friend I need
the only hand I reach

telling all the world that I hate you
true or not it’s something new
still believe despite the crap you put me through
I know you just can’t ring true
I know I just won’t ring through

grow certain you had to bait
a tender trap that I can’t take
evade or lay down a rake
here is the only promise I could make
the only one you ever need to take

oh lady come and dance with
live the life and love I leave
Lady come just dance with me
you’d be the only friend I need
the only hand I reach

adapt and overcome, bridge

freely you took it lightly
but dear he, could never fight me
sincerely you wanna go lightly
and I know we’ll end up burned

cowardly we tip our feet lightly
it’s still adorable how you think you would escape me
sincerely you wanna go lightly and I
I burn

gentle breeze that’s yours to tame
a son, a god, a second name
I wanna know so I let you aim
the only thing for me to blame

I’m a leaf within the wind
watch me soar as I ascend
justified you’ve been a friend
well that’s talk it now begins
just talk let it begin

I’m a leaf within the wind
watch me soar as I ascend
call it off there’s still a chance
for you to pass in arrogance
would you just charge different

then lady come and dance with
live the life and love I leave
Lady come just dance with me
I let you be the one I need
the one and only girl I see

tonight I drop the pen
just fading again
tonight I drop the pen
just fading again

 

Stand upright,

Jona

    • Thank you.
      Ah well, I don’t know. It is really hard. A mirror gives immediate feedback. The camera just captures every stupid mimic or movement. It is excruciating, kinda knaws on my pride ;)
