Songwriting with Ross Hemsworth in Somerset….

Hi Guys,

Just back from Somerset where I have been writing and recording a new track that was originally a country feel, but now a pop/rock with a hint of country with Ross Hemsworth @RossSongwriter (Follow him peeps) who has done many things let me tell you! He has been a Radio presenter, TV presenter for GhostHunting programmes, author and Songwriter/Manager to name but a few.

Really enjoyed it, Ross just doing the mixing. Ross originally wrote a backing track and gave it to me with the title ‘Waiting For The Postman To Come’

Immediately I got a melody to it and a story for that matter….I came up with this idea of a woman in her twenties or thirties who has a major crush on the postman and orders pointless items so that he has to personally deliver them to her to sign for them and that one day she finally plucks up the courage to ask him out via a letter,,,,,

Here are the lyrics:

Waiting For The Postman To Come

Verse 1

I’ve seen a useless invention,

I gotta have,

To go with the horde,

That’ll end up in black bags,

Don’t have a use,

It’s just an excuse,

To sign on the line,

For the mailman that’s so cute,

Don’t tell me I’m crazy,

You’d do the same,

If you could feel this just like we do,

You’d scratch the itch that lit this flames,

CHORUS

It takes a lifetime,

To get the night time to pass so I can see,

A vision from nowhere,

To somebody so near,

He smiles as he lingers, he really sees me,

It takes a lifetime,

To get through the nightime

Night time, night time, night time,

Waiting for the postman to come,

Verse 2

My eyes come alive,

When he walks up the drive,

I lose all sense,

But I’m caught in the middle,

Give up on the chase,

Or get nearer the day,

When hope goes my way,

And he rings to reveal all,

Don’t tell me I’m crazy,

You’d do the same,

If you could feel this just like we do,

You’d scratch the itch that lit this flames,

CHORUS

I’ve bit the bullet,

I’m gonna send this,

His address this time,

But there’s no mistaking

All of my feelings,

Could his heart be his reply?
