Write It Down(for Nicky) c. '15 Vlayman Sometimes it all gets too much 'Talkin' 'bout the pain and such Things make life ain't too fun And yer feelin' outta luck Like ya gotta be the only one Never gets out in the sun Don't like yer lover's touch Can't see no good to come I ain't know what's been goin' wrong All I can say's ya gotta write it down, write it down Bad day, bad month, bad year Can't seem to stop the tears Nothin's goin right 'round here Can't seem to pass the fear I ain't know what's been goin' wrong All I can say's ya gotta write it down Never seem to feel aiight Can't sleep through the too long nights Up head there ain't no light Feelin' like ya'ready lost the fight I ain't know what's been goin' wrong All I can say's ya gotta write it down, write it down I ain't know what's been goin' wrong All I done is write this song & All I can say's ya gotta write it down, write it down Ain't no joy in what ya do 1 and 1 ain't close to two He don't know if it's him or you You don't know if it's him or you I ain't know what's been goin' wrong All I can say's ya gotta write it down, write it down I ain't know what's been goin' wrong All I done is wr ite this song All I can say's ya gotta write it down, write it down Drums: nettage Bass: Hnr2b2-Brick-1176 Vox: SM27-Eureka-RNLA GtrRt: G&Lf100(MeatJr-SoulVibe)-TT-12"-EVnd-PM1000_-MXL880-Eureka-RNLA GtrL:Wildlkat(FulltoneDistPro)-TT-12"-EVnd-PM1000_-MXL880-Eureka-RNLA

about

Vlayman Chicago, Illinois

Fat, bald and old - could I be anymo' rock-n-roll?
I play guitar, bass, some keys and percussion, and I try to vocalize. I write and record, and I do so obsessively. Also, I like martoonies, a lot, and I raise my kids, whom I also like, a lot.
Look for me at the TapeOp and TalkBass forums, where I'm vvv, or in various bars in the Loop.
