This is a mesh of my own guitar, a VST Guitar, a VST Cello, a dub or two, over-dubs of my guitar and a sample or two, which I will accredit when I find the files on my other hard drive (computer failure), my lyrics and vocals all mixed by me ...

... Compatible ...
Come here and sit down beside me
and look deep in my eyes
tell me about all the things that you love
and then tell me why
without saying a word
if that sounds too absurd
you and I probably are
quite possibly far from
being compatible yeah

Can you reach down inside me
and paralyze these butterflies
compel me to doubt all the doubts that I despise
and then compel me to fly
without paying a bird
if you hear the unheard
you and I audibly are
quite possibly far from
being incompatible yeah

the wax is pretty as it's running down the candle
a book is beautiful while standing on it's edge
every door doesn't have to have a handle
can you taste the things that I just said

Come and lay down beside me
and tonight we'll catch the satellites
propelling their way across the mystic ancient skies
and then propel me to heights
without displaying a blur
if something stirred, occurred
you and I unconsciously are
quite certainly far from
being incompatible yeah

a sure thing's not always better than a gamble
motion usually beats just standing still
and though these words might sound like just another ramble
if you can't tell it's a love story spilled out yeah

sit down beside me
and look deep in my eyes
reach down inside me
paralyze these butterflies
lay down beside me
we'll catch the satellites

cuz we're compatible
yeah we're compatible
you know we're more than
just compatible
Compatible ... yeah x

Mystery Radio
Really nice work by man with no band, lovely composition, heartfelt vocals and lyrics. beautiful melodic quality. total enjoyed.

The Man With No Band serves up a musical lyrical gem in "Compatible" with a melody moved with a cello's richness and passion, guitar notes flowing like the river of life, and lyrics painting imagery that could only come from a master's brush, reflecting a life that loves deeply and beautifully - lyrics stripped naked presenting a picture of passionate beauty, unashamed of its honesty and its purity. The vocals, compelling and diamond-lined, are as warm and sincere as their proposal to entwine one's life with another until the stars no longer shine, or until the end of time, whichever comes last, or ever. It is impossible not to catch a ride on this touching, beautiful song, with it causing my memory and mind to reflect on one's own journey through life echoing similar feelings of a love shared as deeply, beautifully and passionately and that fate, or destiny perhaps, let slip through my fingers, and the loss and pain linger on. If song is the penultimate expression, "Compatible" says it all in as many words. Sweet. The Man With No Band - the artist with the touch and the brush, legendary in his own time.
