Just Promise Me (featuring music by Tony Fleitas)

Tony (Florida) approached me on the international music collaboration website I belong to (kompoz.com) about auditioning for a completely different song. While working on that song together, I listened to another one of his guitar tracks and immediately fell in love with it. The words seemed to write themselves as his magical guitar playing resonated in my head that day. He was gracious enough to allow me to sing and write words for it.

Raul (Florida) added the right touch of beat and George (South Carolina) came along with his ever-versatile but always fitting bass (that man can do everything!). 🙂 Nimara (Romania) added some light percussion and synth accompaniment while Nigel (Scotland) brought an uplifting strings, cello, and keys addition. Then, my dear friend, Stoman (Germany), who I ruthlessly call many different nicknames, but one thing is for sure; German engineering remains top notch—even with my less than perfect tracks to work with–mixed the song together making it into one cohesive music bouquet, as if we were all in the same studio room.

People connect to different songs; different genres; at different seasons in their lives. We hope you connect with this sweet song by Tony in whatever season you’re in. Thank you for listening! 🙂 ~ Kim

Promise Me and I’ll promise you.
When we say, “I do.” It’ll mean something true.
Promise Me, you’ll never depart.
Let’s try and avoid the silly talk and start loving each other with our hearts.

I swear today. I’m here to stay.
If you Promise Me, I’ll be here always.
I swear today, I’ll forever stay.
Just Promise Me. Promise Me.

Promise Me and I’ll promise you.
Let’s avoid all the fancy rhetoric.
Keeping it simple will be much better.

We’ll never have to settle for less.
If we always give each other our best.
Just Promise Me.

Handcuffs::Burak Babacan::Producer

Burak is one of those producers who knows exactly what he wants and is meticulous about his music. When he asked me to sing his lyrics on this track, I was unsure if I could deliver but the first 20 seconds into the music, I knew I wanted to try. Burak is in Turkey and, of course, every country has their own “cool kids” lot. I imagine he was one of those super cool kids who gave a slight nod in the hallways at school every time he would pass you. He’s probably not changed his “cool factor” much now—at least that’s what his music might suggest. 🙂 🙂

Hope you enjoy this jazzy tune all the way from the “cool halls” of Turkey.

For Sure::Producer::Walter Paul Owen

What genre is this? Well, it’s got a little bit of everything: pop, rock, and even a little country or country alternative mixed in with some lounge feeling. The Producer, Walt, from Chicago, IL is one of those rough-n-tumble sweetheart of a guys who plays a mean guitar and makes dream productions. I’ve only had the opportunity to work with him a small bit but I hope to do more in the future.

George came and filled out the bottom end of this track with a rhythmic bass and jazzy synths while the Texas-based violinist added a wonderful fiddle part from Ben. We hope you enjoy this lounge pop song with country lyrics, flavor, and hint!

{Lyrics}

Walk on by, don’t shed a tear for me.
I won’t be here, when you get back home.
You made me believe, I was yours, For Sure.
The kind of love that would last through the years.
I don’t want this pain no more.
I can finally take a hint you’re just bored.
No, I don’t want this pain no more.
Take everything you want, just leave this time, For Sure.

Forgive me if I don’t seem to care anymore.
You make this life hard to bear when you act this way.
I followed you around like you were all there was, For Sure.
But now I’ve wised up and I’m ready to be on my own.

Sweet Lullaby::Producer::Nicola Offidani

A sweet, easy-going yet powerful lullaby containing many contrasts both in musical composition and lyrical form. Special thank you to Andy (AndrewB) who gave such depth and refinement to this piece, And George (GeorgeSC) who laid a heart-warming bass line. And then Mike (Slackjaw1) came along and acted as mixing//mastering conductor of our mini-orchestra. We hope you enjoy this dramatic interpretation of a lullaby.

Sweet Lullabye
A soft Lullaby
In the quiet and still of the night
For those moments that are sweet,
When the needs arise.
Sleep, sweet, Lullaby.

Then take me as I am.
A heart like a lion and the touch like a lamb.
Make me a promise I can find.
When the evening fades too quickly
And the moon tries to hide. Sleep, sweet, Lullaby.

Come find me as I am.
The fierce of a soldier with a soft gentle hand.
Take me away from this cruel life.
And sing me the songs that break through the night.
Sing me this, Sweet Lullaby.

Don’t Blame Me::Nicola Offidani::Producer

Don’t Blame Me…. if you like this track… because I had very little to do with it. Nicola Offidani’s soulful musical groove with Joey 6’s “cherries” electric guitar solo. Adding in some skillful German engineering by Steffen Offermann as this track’s protective handler and featuring, Nick Barnhart from San Diego inserting an intro and outro rap vocal with one-of-a-kind style and finesse.

Honestly, this is my kids’ favorite track of the songs I’ve published so far… and all because of the rap. Hope you enjoy it too!

{Rap Lyrics:}
-VERSE 1 You’re a ten times ten to me, I feel you physically and mentally/ Because what you mean to me, or meant to me, is that we were meant to be/ I took a risk I’ll take it again, looked past your faults to break it again/ To make amends I’ll say it again, I love you now let’s stop playing friends.

-VERSE 2 Its been so long since I’ve seen your face/ Remember the time, remember the place/ Remember the way, I believed what you’d say/ You’re my hundred, you’re my ace/ Those things don’t change, still remain the same/ Born in love and instilled in pain/ Let’s paint a portrait forget the frame/ I love your voice when you say my name/ Blinding lights soon become clear/ Reckless heart, not an ounce of fear/ Let’s stop time and watch the years/ While others argue and fight back tears/ The world is simple, I’m here to live/ Handle my bizz, and leave back kids/ Not here for the kicks with you in the mix/ I said forever, no quick fix/ I took my beatings, I took my licks/ But I’m still here to deliver you this/ Just one name on the top of my list/ Don’t blame me girl, it is what it is.

VERSE 1
Don’t blame me for falling for you. It’s not my fault you’re the perfect you. Label me simple or a crazy fool. This feeling’s too easy…loving you.
VERSE 2
I don’t care that you don’t think Too much of me or my love offerings. Sometimes the best parts of what I lack Have nothing to do with what I’d get back.
VERSE 3
You don’t like what you don’t know. The mystery of love is it’s better off shown. I don’t expect anything in return. Even if only it’s just on your terms.
