Jayne - I like this a lot. I think it’s cleverly constructed (which I think most of your songs are - you are a wordsmith). The melody is engaging. I think the sentiment is interesting - what we choose to do in life end’s up in our obit. (I think that’s what you meant.)

In spite of how much I liked it, the one thing that nibbled at the back of my mind was that musically it is a “happy sounding” song, while the subject matter is a little less happy. I’m not sure that I would do anything about that. It’s just something to think about. (Unless, of course, I’ve missed the whole point of the song - possible.)

I like this Jayne! Nice and catchy sound. Like Dick said, There’s something really interesting about having this really catchy uplifting sound on top of a less happy storyline. Personally I think that is what creates the unique thought provoking tone to the song.

Thank you Dick and Dennis.  I appreciate your comments.  Although our own obits is a deeper subject, what the song is saying I hope is that we should live the way we want, given that we will all be at the end someday.  I worked with some fantastic musicians in Nashville for some new demos and left music decisions up to the producer exclusively.  Interesting thought about the music sounding happier than the subject… I will have to ask him if that was his intent.  I didn’t perceive it that way since I thought it was somewhat of an uplifting message.  I’ll post another demo today. Thanks! Jayne

I like the inventiveness of your songs. Great job of getting across what is really a very heavy theme with a nice, bouncy and infectious tune. I think it works. And you are a terrific wordsmith.

Your Life In Ink

Your life In Ink
written by: Jayne Sachs
May 2014

Delores had her next of kin next to her at the end
Walter loved the ladies and the beer, it said
Otis raised himself some cattle, fought like a bull that 5 year battle
Sargaent James left a baby back here

Sunday morning in the paper
Everybody's stories right there
Did they live it like they wanted makes you think

Your life in ink
Every day, every way, everybody's gonna get there someday
Your life in ink
Every chapter, every scene, every choice you make writes your masterpiece
Your life in ink

Delores dreamed of traveling afraid to fly she never tried
Walter’s 3rd wife begged him for his keys, that night
Otis could've been a doctor, stayed on the farm to help his father
Sargaent James took a bullet overseas

You get born your name gets printed
You get years and then you live em
You get just so many pages before you blink

INST

Every story has an ending
Makes ya think we should be living
Just the way we truly want ours to read
