High! This is my fourth KVRAudio song (you can listen to the others here: When You're Bad, If I Had a Pair of You, and Psychosis)

I had a lot of trouble with this one. It has this manic lovey-dovey, cloyingly feel-good feel that I am not completely happy with. Also the production, while being about as good as amateur-me can get it, still feels all muddy and wrong. On the other hand, there's something cute and likeable about the song that I can't seem to shake.

I'm not easily offended, so go ahead. :)

Thank you!

Cappuccino Monday

I'm taking a chance on
A sunburned sidewalk. Something's gone
From the highlights of my sunrise.
Class A to the candidate catching my eye.
Well, she's catching my smile for the candid camera.
Can't stand the eye-candy, capitalize
This Cappuccino Monday. Got till 10 o'clock sharp and
No time for small talk. Said

We turned our lives upside, downside,
Inside, outside with this love.
Wordless witness, work till with this
Word we'll win this
Whole world well. Willingly sing it with me one more time.

I'm taking a bite right out, right on time.
I'm taking a bite right out of the sun.


She was the cream of the crowd, look at her crouched in the corner
Diva daredevil now double screwed over,
Drove her headstart to hate.
Well, she's crossing all her h's and dropping her a's.
"But I'm gonna give you a taste of my medicine, what’s in
My cup, cause Starbucks don't land you on a star but,
On the canvas of this campus,
I know something that can, quite caffeine free."
And I said, "I'm just a worker bee and you can be the queen, see."

We turned our lives upside, downside,
Inside, outside with this love.
Wordless witness, work till with this
Word we'll win this
Whole world well. Willingly sing it with me one more time.

I'm taking a bite right out, right on time.
I'm taking a bite right out of the


Sunny day cutaway, a funny way to handle
The warning of the story of the midmorning mantle.
"Pack your bag, grab your hat and your sandals.
"Plan for your mama to ignore the scramble."

You can't hide her warming candle,
Neighbor, tell the paper to report the scandal.
Gamble on a chandelier swirl of a girl,
And together we'll light up the world.

She will take this word and make it
Work she'll change this
Whole world well. Willingly, sing it with me one more time.

I'm taking a bite right out, right on time.
Taking a bite right out of the sun.

That's a sweet sounding song. The lyrics are rather difficult for me to follow, so it was good that you posted them here. This isn't a complaint. It's neat and strangely fun. It's very free and flows well. It's utterly unlike my own style, so I am particularly attentive to it.

It's a good song. It sounds like something I'd hear on the radio, if the radio wasn't filled with crap today (I don't willingly listen any more). Meaning: sounds like a good pop tune. (that's a good thing)

Well done although it doesn't suit my particular tastes. This is relentlessly sunny, bright, and singalong-y as if you were trying to write a hit song for a romantic comedy.

You are right the mix is unclear. The big dull snare sound chewing up all that space doesn't help.

I found this line particularly puzzling. What does it mean?

"Well, she's crossing all her h's and dropping her a's."

Jace-Beos: Thank you very much, you're too kind.

Frantz: Exactly! It's terribly sickeningly sweet. Oh well.
Hearing a lot about that snare. Gonna work on it.
"Well, she's crossing all her h's and dropping her a's." -ha, no one understands that line. It's my very personal nod to the fact that she's stopped laughing. H-A.
