I wrote this song about things that influence us and the decisions we make. From personal pain to outside influence, I always try to remember that I am the master of my condition. I strive to see the bigger picture and not let something or someone tear at my emotions enough to influence me without careful thought. It's not an easy thing to do.
I hope you are enjoying the songs. Please download them if you feel so inclined. I offer them for free, but I'm a musician and most of us are not rich folk, so if you can I would appreciate the support. Also, please tell your friends, and do so for any music or art you enjoy. We are living in a world where word of mouth is the best advertising...sort of like the early days of the 20th century, except our word of mouth is electronically powered nowadays.
Most people are good, so be kind. We all crawled out of the same sludge puddle.
Recorded on a 1938 Martin 000-18 Guitar in Denver, Colorado.
Just a Put On
By: Martin Gilmore (Timtomtodd, ASCAP 2012)
Can’t you feel that ache for heaven’s sake
It’s been so long this just can’t go on
Night after night All through the day
To fight this fight to feel this way
But pain is just a put on
I’ll admit that it’s a good one
It comes and goes, it rolls and flows
It will bring you down
It will make you and break you
Inspire you or take you
And leave you lonely lying there on the ground
Things were better then Way back when
Those were better days but how things have change
We’re going to pay the cost, and we’ll all be lost
But we can all be saved if you listen to what I say
But fear is just a put on…
Have you heard that song how can that be wrong
With such a golden voice is there another choice
It’s shelter from the rain, release from the pain
All your trials passed, if you do as I ask
But that kind of love is just a put on…
