Verse 1:
It's easy to see why you're in love with me
Just sit right down and listen carefully

Lead In 1:
I'm just trying to let you down easy
Cuz your important to me

Chorus:
David I really like having you around
But you know I'm a little bit older
My heart is a little bit colder
David when you say you love me you get turned down
I have no faith in the love you found

Verse 2:
Your poetry just sweeps me off my feet
And darling boy you look good enough to eat

Lead In 2:
I'm just trying to let you down easy
Cuz your important to me

(Repeat Chorus)
(Repeat Lead In)
(Repeat Chorus)

Filming a “no budget” music video is getting to be real fun! This one was no exception. We pretty much went thrift shopping one day in late August and shoot a music video for “David” at the same time. Being an indie artist gives you this special license to do what you want when you want to. I’m sure if ever we get signed to a major label the first thing that they are doing to do is take down our YouTube account and throw away the key. Anyway we are proud of the song and wanted to give it some wings. We really hope you guys like it!

It Happens All The Time (Demo Version)





THE STORY BEHIND THE MUSIC:
__________________________________________________

FYI Disclaimer: Please be informed that this recording is a demo track that has been written for but not actually recorded by any of the fore-mentioned artists in the title... yet.
__________________________________________________

We are HUGE fans of the Pet Shop Boys, most notably their production work on the Liza Minnelli 'Results' and Dusty Springfield 'Reputation' albums have always been real 'stand outs' for us. So it was really only a matter of time before we stepped up as songwriters and wrote something that we felt would have been perfect for either of these two dashing diva darlings. We wanted in our own way to pay special homage to, raise a glass to and pay tribute to these incredible albums that still haunt us over 22 years later.

You could say that we were inspired but driven with mad endless passion would be more accurate. We wanted to compose something that would fit in seamlessly with the 'Results' or 'Reputation' albums. We jumped right in to compose "It Happens All The Time".

Going forth with its strong 1980's production values, we knew this theatrical dance ballad would be hard to place. We both decided to write something with a sophisticated edge. Taking on more of a Stephen Sondheim 'Losing My Mind' cabaret writing style, this song fresh out of the studio in 2010 seemingly had a limited market sounding like it came straight out of 1989 instead. We tried to imagine how Liza would sing this song when we went in to record the demo. I put on my best Liza voice. "Jazz Hands!" :)

We did try several times to pitch this song to Liza but to no avail. At the time back in 2010, She had just wrapped up production on her 2010 release 'Confessions' and wasn't looking for any new material. And unfortunately, getting this song to Dusty was out of the question because we wrote this composition long after she left this world. Well Liza or Dusty never heard it... but we thought that you should!

Because of the YouTube success we had with the song that we penned with Stevie Nicks in mind, "What Would You Do?" we'd decided to do it once again. We've been sitting on this demo for 'It Happens All The Time" for well over a year now. We thought that it made perfect sense to put another presentation together so that people could hear the song. Otherwise it'd just be here sitting in a box in the corner of the room.

Liza, if you are out there reading this right now... it's our innocent hope that through the magic of the Internet that you will consider recording this song. It was written for YOU!

And Dusty... We refuse to let your memory die... your music and gripping vocal deliveries live with us in our haunted hearts forever.

If anyone is interested in recording / releasing this song please visit The Harry Fox Agency for licensing information: http://www.harryfox.com/public/Licensee.jsp

We really hope that you enjoy our little 80s flavored dramatic pop ballad, 'It Happens All The Time'. It truly was a labor of love and it's very dear to our hearts.

Sincerely, Sibling Songwriters... Carly & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
My friends call me up to investigate
I've fallen in love and I know it's too late
A haunted heart knows it's nothing new
I couldn't commit when you asked me to

Chorus:
I think of you and it happens all the time
I think of you and you're always on my mind

Verse 2:
I feel your presence though you are not there
A delicate breeze blows through the evening air
Archangels wage war with you
Unbreakable bonds are now torn in two

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
And though I try my best not to count the cards...
Why do I bet against the odds?
I cannot fake this grand mistake...
The world goes on spinnin' but I should have given you my heart

Verse 3:
And in a dream that's destined to come true
Even though I am no good for you
A place in private we'll retreat...
I'll lay my kingdom at your feet...

(Repeat Chorus)
