Vibrate!

Next time I wake up
Things will be different
Things will have changed
Next time I go to bed
Will be the last time I'd have said
Won't feel like this again

Next time I wake up
Time would have run its course
Lives would be won and lost
Next time, if there is one
Will be a moment I embrace
Won't let it run away no more

Oh Lord, I will vibrate! I will vibrate!

Live for the moment, take in the moment before its gone
Stay with the moment, stay with the moment all night long


May have been a stupid boy
Wasted opportunities
All part of being young
But next time when I wake up
I will grab a piece of it
Bring my spirit home

When I meet my maker
And he asks what is it I've done
I'll lift my head and say
For once I gave it everything
Didn't hold back anything
Gave myself away

Oh Lord, I will vibrate! I will vibrate!

Live for the moment, take in the moment before its gone
Stay with the moment, stay with the moment all night long

Why deny the being, physical or fake
Try to fight the feeling, it's difficult to take
I won't let go 'cause its in my soul
And like rock n' roll it's gonna shake this place


Live for the moment, take in the moment before its gone
Stay with the moment, stay with the moment all night long

I will vibrate!

(DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF STUART ADAMSON)

Thanks Simon.

Whenever I get the chance, I love to read lyrics before hearing them played. You never truely know what to expect when you listen to the song the first time but you have a foundation. Then you end up hearing alternate versions, live jams etc, but you still get that same vibe.

Weak lyrics are just no good and I commend you for your consistant thought-out work. Vibrate looks awesome and I look foward to hearing it!!

Thanks a million

Hey cool! I like that! And I like the fact that you are brave enough to make mistakes to risk a new song. That's awesome. I'm glad you are going to do some upbeat songs, I need that.
Thanks Simon.:)

Blogger Nabonidus said...

Ooops,I worded that awkwardly.
I meant that I like that you are willing to take the risk - new songs are worth it. It's worth the chance that you might make a mistake. But you probably won't, anyway!Doesn't matter.
And the words to this are killer! They flow.
By the way, Simon, you've been inspiring me musically, so much!
I meant to say that, if I haven't.
You really let go when you play,
I'm learning a lot from you.Trying to have more confidence and relax more when I play, for one.Let myself go.For another, it's ok to be...sensual
in my music. It doesn't mean I'm trying to be Brittany spears to let a little "charm" show through. Sorry for being so candid, but this is what I'm learning from you ( and Rachel).I don't have to hide behind things, be afraid to be attractive to people.
Anyway,
Thanks again for cheering me up, this is so cool. Brand new music to look forward to!:D

The words remind me of something I read once, Shakespeare ( let's see if I get it right)
" Oh sweet moment, stay awhile. You are so fair." I always loved that.
I need to remember to be in the moment more.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend,
Simon( I'd swear I didn't see that before now!). I hope it wasn't...well
I just hope that he has peace now, if he didn't before. My words feel
inadequate, sorry. :(

Simon,

Just ordered the CD and shirt. Paypal was being weird last night, not sure what was going on...

"When I meet my maker
And he asks what is it I've done
I'll lift my head and say
For once I gave it everything
Didn't hold back anything
Gave myself away"


This is my favorite verse. Wonderful lyrics on this one overall. I'm disappointed cause I won't be able to hear you play it on ITA tomorrow, Calculus final exam. :(

Everyone needs to write good reviews so I know how it was!!!

Good luck, break a leg, be great. (Of course you will!)

Simon,

I read these wonderful lyrics in
the wee hours of the morning a
bit tanked and did not realize
what I was taking in.This afternoon
I re-read them and realized indeed
what I took in.Absolute beautiful
tribute to Stuart.Love could save
you and the lack of love can send
you spiraling down into the black
hole.I won't say anymore,but I
remember when I read the news
about a certain love in his life
that broke his heart.I've been
down that black hole with a bottle
and no latter to climb back up
but was always pulled out by
reaching hands.The hands didn't
reach that December day.Simon,
you are a warm sensitve soul
with vital compassion and
spirit.

Blogger Nabonidus said...

I don't know what happened but I get the idea. :(
What people don't realize is that it's not easy to say "help me, I am in a personal hell and I wish I was dead.
But I don't really want to die"
There's pride, futility.Shame. Granted,if one is lucky there are people around to see and force the issue somehow.
I tried to kill myself about 10 years ago. I was desperately unhappy, trapped in a bad marriage, etc. I just got quieter and quieter. It wasn't drugs, or alcohol. It was more a heartbreak/ depression issue. I made a more...hard core effort and wound up in the hospital for almost a month,took me almost two years to walk properly agian, etc. and of course also had maaaass counseling which was a good thing.
And here I am. I had even more people around at the time, but I was too proud and too...ashamed I guess, of not being happy. Why wasn't I like everyone else? So I just didn't tell anyone or ask for help. I didn't even leave a note.
I've had a lot of personal loss the past couple of years. My parents, my ex ( divorce), my first love and friend of 20 years died recently.The
guy that taught me how to play guitar. I miss my dad.
I am really blue right now.
Kinda freaked me out when I read Simon's post last night ...I dunno. Simon, this all was a weird coincidence for me.
You really picked up on my depression plus the anniversary of Stuarts death, whew. :(
The hard part of saving yourself
can be asking for your friends to help you. And to not isolate yourself. I am obviously trying hard not to isolate myself this season. :(
Sorry to get so heavy there. xoxoLisa
Don't worry anyone, I'm not suicidal
or anything. But if anyone is feeling like that, reach out to someone, don't be too proud!

2:55 PM  
Blogger Nabonidus said...

I came back to say :
I'm glad I'm alive. I am a miracle, according the docs and nurses. I'm glad I didn't succeed, though I should have.
I couldn't have forseen meeting all my blogging buddies and watching the killer concerts from my computer. Living at the beach. Etc.
It's good to be alive, even if I'm sad.I was lucky that I lived to regret it.
Thanks for listening , Simon.

3:20 PM  
Blogger Alecia said...

Nabonidus your last post gave me chills. You are so right, if ever your that down, please talk to someone. In a depressed state its really hard to see that "this too shall pass." If we can look at our lives above all the drama, maybe we can get to that place in our heart where love is the ruler. To know and feel with all of our being that love somes from within, instead of thinking it comes from outside of us. Relationships provide the opportunity to express or mirror the love that we are. If one can look at life like this it helps get through the rough spots. It has me for anyway.

"Dedicated to the memory of Stuart Adamson" - very nice AFTERTHOUGHT Simon.

The dedication wasn't there to begin with so now after my earlier post you see an opportunity to touch the hearts of "fans of a band who no longer exist" (at least I think that is how you described us??

Where and when will it end?

I was lucky enough to know Stuart personally. He was a deep and thoughtful guy who I would have loved to have known better but unfortunately it wasn't to be. I didn't know that it was the anniversary of his death until you posted on my blog and I thought it appropriate, as an afterthought, to dedicate my new lyric to his memory. May he rest in peace.

Simon,

That is a beautiful and heartfelt lyric.

‘Casbah Convert’ is obviously a sad wanker with nothing better to do than have a go at people with real talent and songwriting skills. So what if it was an afterthought to dedicate it to Stuart. Those of us that know you are aware that it was totally genuine.

Hey Bill, that's a great idea! I remember after the Basement Jam I came here wondering if Si was going to post any thoughts on the experience. You know, stuff like " I thought my Save me was particularly strong tonight, had a little trouble with the tuning on The girl from NY..." Etc. That would be awesome.

Heh, and I noticed a part during "sex change" where he came over to the side camera and smiled, I'd swear it was like he was saying to us all "hello bloggers!"
lol
So I agree, Bill, I hope Simon does post some afterthoughts,observations or something.Good idea!KOR

p.s. starting to develop a theory
about CC - I think it's Steve the T.
reincarnated.

6:53 AM  
Blogger Nabonidus said...

Note*
S the T claimed that he knew R and S,
said as much over at R's. When he made odious claims over there. He forgets what he says in the heat of the moments, so that these little clues come back later. I'd straight up fucking filter CC if you can. If it's possible to block one person. I'm not the most savvy at the technicalites but I'm good with people and good with remembering little details that tell
me somethin' ain't right. I even wondered right when CC came on the scene if it wasn't S the T come back. I think it's S the T. the more I consider little details and timelines, it's clear.
BUSTED!!!! LOLOLOL

Blogger Bri said...

Simon, This is really a great lyric and emotion. I would love to hear it with music. I don't know the story behind your friend's death but I have heard some of his music. Thank you for sharing this.

I lost a dear old friend to suicide years ago and you know, I still think of her so often. I read her letters from the 1970s and '80s sometimes and have just made the decision to share them with her family. She left behind two kids who are now adults. She used to write poetry and send it to me, that sort of thing. I see her letters as journals of a sort, and I think her children would appreciate them. I asked her ex-husband for his opinion and he was supportive of the idea.

Our friends live on in us, in their music and art, and in their families of course.

Hugs,
Brina

1:27 PM  
Blogger casbah convert said...

But it is ok for you to be totally disrespectful to the thousands of fans of Big Country - "a band that no longer exists" as you stated. That was a terrible slight on every Big Country fans' character to have posted that.
On a similar vein though - how many Beatles fans would you confront with the same statement??

These are the same Big Country fans that Casbah Club initially targeted - there was never any similar CC enthusiasm shown on any "Jam" or "Who" sites was there?

That is all in the past now and as I said in my deleted post, all I was doing was expressing an opinion

2:53 PM  
Blogger casbah convert said...

who the hell is "S the T"? (I presume you are not referring to Simon)- I am interested in why people seem to have a downer on him/her.
I am a fan of Big Country and through that association had an introduction to Simon's music - saw him support BC accoustically twice in the mid 90's. I then saw him with Casbah Club 6 times and enjoyed it immensely, finding the band much more rock oriented than with the original vocalist. At these gigs, the largest cheer and biggest crowd reaction was when the BC songs were done, illustrating how much of the original fan base was from the BC camp. I was extremely offended at the post regarding following a band that no longer exists (as were all BC fans I know).
Why is expressing your opinion considered as "whining" when it is not a positive opinion? Wouldn't life be dull if we all had exactly the same opinion about everything?

Sorry for my rant, Simon. lolol My colorful, hearfelt rant.
I'll yank it if you want,or you can yank it, I won't get offended if you do. It's just that it's all very clear now what is going on.
And I want to make sure it's known. I swear I'm tempted to make a diagram, a chart.LOLOL You guys would trip on all the little slip ups and clues. lol
I would not even try to deny if I were the person, I am ready to bring it. So to speak. That was a friendly warning.
Back the hell out of this room and close the door.Seriously.I'm trying to be nice. :)
I guess I have a good memory, certain things stand out in my mind,
and when they do, I am able to go back and look things up and they match.All along this has happened here.
But if I talk about why various things are all so obvious, the person will get ideas on how to be more clever.

Very much enjoyed hearing and now reading your new song, "Vibrate". I appreciate spiritual growth. Something here strikes me Mississippi. Maybe, maybe not. Who do you listen to? Which ones from the blues?

On the lyrics, I'd like to see/hear the opening repeated.

Next time I wake up
Things will be different.....///
Won't feel like this again.

And even, if I can say this, (I will) in place of questioning anyone. Why deny and so forth. The song is a testament to growth, and the power of this, for me, is interrupted by I think an unintentional direct address to an ambigous you of sorts. Just something I noticed, and I think would make the song real tight.

I loved the performance. Your voice is tender and strong, ripe and sterling. Your guitar playing, stellar. Thanks for posting here.

Ginab, wasn't it awesome? I was weeping, outright. I don't even care if anyone knows it. And I'd swear Rachel and Pete looked moved themselves. When the camera panned over and showed them from the side.
Absolutely amazing and stunning and
beautiful. I was struck speechless,
no small feat. lollol
And you didn't mess up, Simon, it was perfect! It was so sweet how nervous you were, it IS scary doing new songs in front of people. I completely understand! You nailed it, hell yeah. :D
Thanks for being such an inspiration to me and for having so much heart.

I bought a new guitar yesterday, it's acutally used. But I like it, and I realized tonight that the body of it looks like that black guitar of yours.It's a reddish hohner that I fancied, and I bought a little elctric Peavey,too. A little thing more for rockin. Utilitarian. Since they were used, the prices were right. I'm going to be doing some riffs and showing them off in some webcam clips later.You should come check out my not so-terrible-cam clips sometime.lol
What kinda guitar is that black one?
My "new" Hohner is electric/acoustic.
I went for what felt and played right for me.
Hey, hope you get that new song recorded soon, if you haven't!

I was trying to find more details about it online just now, and someone had posted that it was a Chet Atkins copy ( my "new" guitar)...last night in chat Kid Ric made a reference to your guitar being like one that Chet Atkins plays. Coincidence,
I swear, I am clueless on what kind of guitar yours is! I didn't do that on purpose!:)
AFA anything else,I am behaving myself now out of respect for you and certain others.But that's the only reason. I believe every word I said.I'm sorry for my rudeness in your space, my tolerance for bs and negativity is low these days.

But I also wanted to say again,
I am just amazed at your songs.They made me happy and it felt good to be alive when I was listening to them. I almost wish I'd missed the chat so that I could've paid more attention to the song that Alecia spoke of, "Those Eyes", I admit I've been kinda following your fingers trying to experiment with some of the chords you play. I've noticed that you tend to play a lot of different, more unique chords.I really like that.
And Alecia, I'm so jealous you recorded it! I would so love to see it again. xoxoLisa
p.s. I have some pics up of the new guitars. My new Hohner is a...( let me see here)..
Hohner professional Model no.TWP West-SB acoustic/electric.
The Peavey is a raptor exp.
I swear I must've subconsciously
picked up your guitar and stored it
in my memory.
I just liked the way this hohner felt and played. I haggled and got a good price.
Again thanks for everything!Bye!:)

Getting a bit heavy on here tonight!

There's enough crap going down in this world guys without filling this place up with so many negative vibes.

Peace and love is the way forward.

Good will to all from Liverpool

Simon,

Happy Christmas/New Year's and all that!

I'm sorry I missed the webcast performance, it sounded like it must have been a good one... the reviews are all are good. :)

I'd love to hear the music here on your blog or on your website... even if just a teaser!

Funny, I was just listening to the Raphaels recently, thinking how much I still miss Stuart.

A fitting tribute, Simon. Nice work!

Cheers!
