Welcome To My Parlor
« on: March 18, 2015, 01:21:51 AM »
This was originally a poem that a friend at another site gave me complete liberty to do with as seen fit. I gutted and butchered it to fit a 3 min box. My 1st recording in over a year. My last was Punani early in March of 2014.

It's a realtime 1+1 cut

I have been fortunate enough to get a great bite of the Apple of Life. One thing I know for sure. Watch out for the Worms!

Cool!
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

Thanks for listening guys ! Here  is the original poem by Ott Lukk and what I condensed it to to get it in a 3min box. it was fun and made me work because I hadn't recorded in over a year.

 well, welcome to my parlor, itís darkened, donít you see
 Iíve got it all arranged, for my fantasies
 the couch is made of leather, the lamp a Tiffany
 Iíve created an illusion. a world made just for me
 
 I can fantasize a lover, and sheíll play the perfect part
 and all will be so easy, for Iíll surely win her heart
 
 welcome to my parlor, welcome!
 she will cover me with kisses, make my body sing a song
 and Iíll tell my delusions, that they should play along
 
 youíd appreciate the lighting, it isnít very bright


 I try to duplicate, the feeling of the night
 my lady is more friendly, if she thinks sheíll have her way
 but to me this is the place, where the both of us can play
 
 welcome to my parlor, welcome!
 she will cover me with kisses, make my body sing a song
 and Iíll tell my delusions, that they should play along
 
 so I dwell on tomorrow, where sweet night will always be
 where love is exactly like, I wanted it to be
 her smile will surely light her fire, and burn me with its flame
 and in our drowning passion, sheíll surely call my name
 
 welcome to my parlor, welcome!
 she will cover me with kisses, make my body sing a song
 and Iíll tell my delusions, that they should play along
 
 still, I canít help but wonder, when I look at all thatís here
 am I the only one, whoís really ever here
 the lighting is so sensual, the lamp has such a glow
 but the darkness holds some secrets, that maybe I should know
 
 is the lady an illusion, I canít really tell
 Ďcause when I think about her, sheís already cast her spell
 she will cover me with kisses, make my body sing a song
 and Iíll tell my delusions, that they should play along
 
 I may be living in a fantasy, kissing lips I can not see
 but she is such a lovely vision
 sheís always here with me!

My version

               Welcome To My Parlor   
                     
                      Intro

 Welcome to my parlor, itís darkened, can you see?
 I have it all arranged for my fantasies
 The couch is made of leather the lamp's a Tiffany
 Iíve created an illusion a world made just for me
 
 My lady is more friendly when she knows it is her way
 For me this is the place where the both of us can play
 Her smile can surely light my fire and burn me with its flame
 and in our drowning passion I'm sure she'll call my name
 
                      Chorus
 Welcome to my parlor where imagination reigns
 I tell all my delusions be quiet this is my game
 Welcome to my parlor where imagination reigns
 I tell all my delusions       I am not insane
 
                Instrumental break
 
 The lighting is so sensual the lamp has such a glow
 The darkness holds the secrets that only I should know
 I canít help but wonder, when I look at all thatís here
 Am I the only one           whoís really ever here?                                                                                                                               
                     Chorus
 Welcome to my parlor where imagination reigns
 I tell all my delusions be quiet this is my game
 Welcome to my parlor where imagination reigns
 I tell all my delusions       I am not insane
 
                     Outro
