Hands Up (I am Giving Up)



Vocal


Instrumental

#rock

Supposedly something like this happened to a distant relative (without the bullets)..

Hands up (I Am Giving Up)

running on flats
with nowhere to sleep
begging for money
from people like steel

this world does not
care about your
primal scream
your busted dream

freezing to death
on a night without mercy
with a box full of bullets
and a one last move

(Chorus start)

Hands up
I am giving up
I put my
hands up.

I am done
with the fight.

Hands up
I am giving up
I put my
hands up.

Won't you
take me away.

(chorus)

on a cold cold night
all out of fight

at the end of a
bad luck rainbow
with a whole bunch of
 problems and nowhere to go

ready for the judge
to bring down the gavel with
a sound like thunder
that will put me away

that is what I get
for running away with Amy Lee
too bad
she did not like me

sheriff's daughter
with a guy like me
i should have known
i was gonna get my dues

(chorus)

there is no glory
in being on the run
bonnie and clyde
they both got shot

but if you hear this
stay away from Amy Lee
she is all hot
but her father

is not..

Pure



Vocal



Instrumental

The female viewpoint to my song "Smell Of Stale Cigarettes"..

#country #adultcontemporary


Pure 

when you are looking for 
something sure
something better than 
a country song 

something more than that 
fly by night cowboy 
something more
than one night affair

pure 
something straight from the heart 
pure 
something 
you can take to stars

something more than 
a promise made in heat 
something more than a 
surface something deep 

a love that wont leave you
a love that can heal you 
from bruises of this world baby
someone who won't say maybe

someone to call you lady 
someone who is not flakey
someone to grow up with 
someone someone

pure 
something straight from the heart 
pure 
something 
you can take to stars

pure
someone who isn't touched by grime 
pure
someone who stands the test of time

tired of the dances
where you stand by the wall 
and you rather be at home 
once and for all

thinking about quitting
the endless search for meat
a big dumb animal that will turn out 
to  be creep 

a love that wont leave you
a love that can heal you 
from bruises of this world baby
someone who won't say maybe

someone to call you lady 
someone who is not flakey
someone to grow up with 
someone someone

pure 
something straight from the heart 
pure 
something 
you can take to stars

pure
someone who isn't touched by grime 
pure
someone who stands the test of time

Rock And Roll


Lyrics to my instrumental from today (Onward)

My wife (Katrina Luode) came up with the idea and most of the verse choruses.. :D

#rock

Rock And Roll

Johnny plays
at the bowling alley.
every Friday
like it was replay.

once it was him and
his rock and roll baby.
She was his world now
he is playing alone

it is hard to hear
over clang of pins
the gutter balls
and the strikes and screams

rock and roll
the sad the sad rock and roll
rock and roll
he is looking at those swinging doors
come on Johnny
stop moping
and looking for that beehive floozy yeah

rock and roll
he is listening rock and roll
rock and roll
that good old rock and roll
come on johnny
its not that bad
let the floozy go yeah

another Friday
another tune so
lonely and blue it
hurts to listen

that is when she walks in
in all of her glory
calling him in with
a smile and a wink

it is hard to hear
over clang of pins
the gutter balls
and the strikes and screams

rock and roll
they are dancing to the
rock and roll

rock and roll
they are shaking to the rock and roll
come on johnny
its kind a funny
the she makes you rock and roll

rock and roll
he is listening to rock and roll
rock and roll
that good old rock and roll
come on johnny
its not that bad
she hits you
like a wrecking ball

Johnny be good
she says
lets give it a whirl
one more time
lets leave this joint..

Wash Away The Dust Of Yesterday



I wrote lyrics to my instrumental "No One Likes The Preacher"

Wash Away The Dust Of Yesterday

every day 
we wake up 
to something new 

a new love 
a bolt 
from the blue 

some wake up to a song 
some wake up to a cry 
its all good 
there is nothing wrong
on this blessed day 

wash away the dust of yesterday 
give today a chance 
let the bad dream fade

wash away the dust of yesterday 
sing a song 
for today 

who knows what tomorrow brings 
yesterday's gone 
with yesterday's fling 

so spread your wings and fly 
take off 
to the sky 

wash away 
the dust of yeste

let today
shine like the sun 

kick the habit, kick the blues 
get yourself brand new shoes 
learn to fly, learn to ride 
sing the encore one more time

like you were a new born child 
see the world in brand new light
let today, in 

who knows what tomorrow brings 
yesterday's gone 
with yesterday's fling 

so spread your wings and fly 
take off 
to the sky 

wash away the dust of yesterday 

let it go 
let it go 
let it 
fade 

wash away the dust of yesterday 

let it go 
let it go 
let it 
fade 

away

Vastauksia mepeiltä / Answers to my email from Euro parliament members.

Miapetra Kumpula-Natri:

Kyllä, isojen on osallistuttava neuvotteluihin ja maksaa korvauksia, jotta mhls muuta kuin ”ilmaista” musiikkia on olemassa. Se että kuulisin musiikkiasi ”ilmaiseksi” youtubessa nytkään, on kovin suhteellista, tietojamme käytetään ja markkinointituloja on valtavasti. Miksei siitä pitäisi mennä siivuakaan luovan alan työntekijöille, kuten vanhoina (hyvinä?) aikoina?

Voit ihan varmasti ilmoittautua youtubeen myöhemminkin, tarkoitus on etteivät he yksin kerää kaikkea rahaa alustallaan tapahtuvasta toiminnasta, arvokuilusta olet varmaan kuullut.

Hautala Heidi:

Hei

Äänestin väärin juuri tässä kohdassa. Vahingossa. Virhe on korjattu pöytäkirjaan.

Yt. Heidi Hautala

Translations:

Miapetra Kumpula-Natri:

Yes, the big players have to participate with the negotiations and pay reparations, if possible
because "Free" music exists. That I would hear your music for "free" on youtube even now is very
relative. Our information is used and lots of money is made out of it in marketing. Why any of
that should go to creative workers like in the "good old days".

You can most assuredly be part of youtube later too, the meaning is that they wont make all of
the money from the platform. You have probably heard of value gap.

Hautala Heidi:

I voted wrong in this case. Accidentally. The mistake has been corrected to the record.
