Vanessa Songs / Lyrics / Sheet Music / Operator Lyrics
« on: July 22, 2015, 01:02:23 am »
Here's the lyrics. I put a question mark beside the lines where I'm not entirely sure.

I could be your operator.
I could bring you joy.
Something like a freedom fighter.
Guns are just for boys. (?)

I heard what you said,
You should say it again
Cause it's bold, bold.
It's getting late, darling,
Get a move on it.
We should go, go.

You should never tell your mother.
You could give it time.
I pour a drink, here have another
Cause this is gonna blow your mind.

Heard what you said
And I say what I mean,
We should go, go.
Pack up your things,
I don't care what you bring.
Leave your house for a home.

And you should call your little brother.
Tell him to be good.
And tell him that you really love him.
You don't but you should.

I heard what you said,
So don't say it again
Cause it's cold, cold.
It's getting late, darling,
Get a move on it.
We should go, go.

And I could be your moneymaker,
And you could be my song.
We'll worry about the others later.
We should gotta move on.
We should go, go.

Pack up your things,
I don't care what you bring.
Leave your house for a home.

Hi, guys!

I've been trying to find any recording of Pretty Baby live, that is, aside from the ones from the BNN era.

So far, I only found two.

I want to find the live acoustic ones where V doesn't play the piano because I love the different vibe from it. Can you guys help me out?

I finally found the time to make a cover. Borrowed a decent keyboard from a friend. I haven't played piano for more than a month until today, so pardon the mistakes. ;D Tell me what you think.

I don't know if this is posted but I found this because of random googling...

http://www.myspace.com/video/vanessacarlton/i-don-t-want-to-be-a-bride-psuedo-video/108054039

It's odd that they posted this video in myspace first....

And here's another bit I found in the official site.

A MESSAGE FROM VANESSA

Dear Phantom Friends,

The album, the collaboration, the arts and crafts project that is Rabbits on the Run, is a vault of melodies, philosophies, and questions that will forever preserve the past three and a half years of my life. A chunk of time that has reshaped who I am and has humbled me. The process of making the record was restorative and prickly and shook me out of a ten year slumber. It was also magical. I made this record with a group of artists that I never thought I'd get to work with. On the eve of this release, as I type in to black buttons, and stare at a glowing screen in my hotel room, I feel grateful that I'm able to create music and send it out into the world like some sort of ship on the sea. It is how I connect. It is how I stay alive. I realize now that this record isn't mine anymore, it belongs to the hearts and brains of those that connect with it. And I humbly hand it over. I hope that it brings you to life in the way that it brought me to life.

Love

Vanessa

Vanessa Songs / Lyrics / Sheet Music / Dear California Chords
« on: June 01, 2011, 04:25:57 am »
I just figured this one out few hours ago, and I fell in love to it along the way. I'm feeling good about the chords. (:
This one's in the key of E major. (:

Dear California


INTRO: | E | E | E | E | (3X)


VERSE I:
A              B                      E
  As usual, I'm in a tricky predicament
A                      B                                          E
  Weather in my thoughts, on the roof sneaking a cigarette
A              B                E           C#m
  Dear California, it's been nice to know ya
A                       B                      E (drop)
  Tell me will you miss me when I'm gone?


CHORUS I:
                                 A           B             E
  Cause he loves me as I leave, so I'm gonna go
                                A                 B             E
  And I'm not in company's when you feel it most
                                 A                 B                  E
  And you keep my memory, I hope ya keep me close
                                  A         B       E
  Would you love me as I   leave?


VERSE II:
A              B                         E
  This alchemy is making me suspicious (Oooh-oooh)
A                        B                   E                       C#m                         A
  As if I slipped you some belladonna that I crossed town to get, don't you know?
              B                          E (Drop)
  Yes, my grand friend checks it


CHORUS I:
                             A           B             E
  Oh he loves me as I leave, so I'm gonna go
                                A                 B             E
  And I'm not in company's when you feel it most
                                A                 B                  E
  And you keep my memory, I hope ya keep me close
                                 A         B       E
  Would you love me as I   leave?


CHORUS II:
                                A         B           E
  Ever changing as the sea, it's my only hope
                              A         B           E
  It's just me and my pup in the open road
                                A        B            E
  But your face is like a paper cut to the heart
                        A         B          
  Slip away while you sleep


BRIDGE:
A             E
  It's easy,   it's easier
C#m              B  
  Than it seems
A             E
 It's easy,   it's easier
C#m              B  
  Than it seems
A           E        C#m           B
  Just go,  I'll go,     don't cry
A            E          C#m             B    A (Drop)
  Don't go,  don't go,    you still cry

| A - B | E |
| A - B | E  |     A - B | E  |
             I don't cry
| A - B | E |


CHORUS I:
                             A           B             E
  Oh he loves me as I leave, so I'm gonna go
                                A                 B             E
  And I'm not in company's when you feel it most
                                A                 B                  E
  And you keep my memory, I hope ya keep me close
                                 A         B       E
  Would you love me as I   leave?
 

CODA:
                                A - B       E
  Ever changing as the sea
                                    A       -      B         E      
  Would you love me as I leave? (Dear California)
                                   A       -      B         E
  Would you love me as I leave? (Dear California)
                                    A       -      B         E
  Would you love me as I leave? (Dear California)
                                    A       -      B         E (Drop)

How come there's still no thread about this song? It's AMAZING.

To me, it sounds Wicca-inspired. The references to 'grave/gray stones' and 'witch doctor' are so poetic. And they didn't even sound so forced.

And the vibe - it was magical. Dreamy. I think that this is somehow the twin of the bridge of Carousel.

And I've been thinking that maybe, the stones being referred are the Stonehenge...

Hmm.... Thoughts?

I made this one out of boredom. Anyone is free to use it. (:




that's really pretty..but that's not her right?  It would be very awesome if she did a pic like that though..

Very artsy. Very her. Though I don't think that V would do that much high-fashion.

« on: March 01, 2011, 04:33:37 am »
I can't write just the chords because the strumming is a little hard to explain.

9. Get Good

Intro: |A   |G  D|A -

Verse 1:
            A
Are the echoes coming back to you?
    A                                        G             D               A
Is wisdom seeing patterns on the gloom that rope around you?
                           G      D                 
And you will be the colors,
                 A
when I saw you

Verse 2:

Catching velvet on the moonlight,

You'll get good in time

Wish I could make it right

Chorus:

And don't you worry, you'll soon be off limits

And you'll feel lucky, darling, I'm sure of it
      E           D (break)
We'll figure it out and get good again

(Intro)

Verse 3:
    A
A slow-mo run and there's a breeze
   A                               G        D                A
A golden dust, a dandelion sea, a bout of sorcery
                          G              D                   A

No, it's not true, but I know what you think
                  D                     A             E     Bm
I want to thank you for being so good to me

I just wanted you to know

Are the echoes coming back to you?

Is wisdom seeing patterns on the gloom that rope around you?

And we'll look out for each other and I'll look out for you

We'll look out for each other

(Chorus except last line)
      E           F#m                   D        A
We'll figure it out, yeah, we'll get good again
