I recently put a new love song I have written out for demo production. This song represents a challenge for me relating to "simple joys". One thing I run into a lot when I a getting evals for songs I am writing is the need to "punch up" the lyrics and make them larger than life. I understand that from a commercial standpoint and I can't argue with the logic. In this particular love song, I am looking at a couple of very intimate vignettes in the life of the couple and in doing so, must relish the fact that life's joys can be very simple. Consequently, the song is probably weak commercially but enjoyable on a personal level.
I kinda treat each song the way a painter would treat a canvas. I try to do my best on it and paint a picture. I'm gonna hang them on the wall -- warts and all -- and they will be what they will be. I hope that the enjoyment will eventually by shared by others, but that is beyond my control.
Life's joys are simple. In love, it is the sharing of everyday joys that is most important. Not every day and every event can be larger than life. Enjoy them when you have them, but savor the simple things.
