Lyrics

I Think of You

Music and lyrics by: Bill Dake
Copyright: 2014 billdakemusic ASCAP

When the road get's kinda blurry
And I find myself
Driftin' off into the weeds
There's a compass that I use
Helps to steer me through the blues
I Think of You

When the lines get sorta fuzzy
And the journey seems a waste of time
There's a prescription that I write
Helps to clear my foggy sight
I Think of You

Never fails to cure a fever
Clouds of grey don't stand a chance
Just the thought of you is all I need
To clear away the rubble
And pull me out of trouble

I've become a true believer
Now that I know what real love can do
You put the heart back into me
With some delicious surgery
You know it's true
So let's review
When I need some sweet upliftin'
I let my thoughts start driftin'
Back to you

Instrumental solo

Never fails to cure a fever
Clouds of grey don't stand a chance
Just the thought of you is all I need
To clear away the rubble
And pull me out of trouble

I've become a true believer
Now that I know what real love can do
You put the heart back into me
With some delicious surgery
You know it's true
So let's review
When I need some sweet upliftin'
I let my thoughts start driftin'
Back to you
Baby, I Think of You

Smooth jazz piece that is easy on the ears. Good use of Instrumentation. Excellent guitar work.

Bill Dake mixes vintage classic lounge jazz with contemporary pop jazz to create a blend of smooth jazz that is both entertaining and relaxing for his audience to enjoy.

I think the thing that immediately strikes me about this track is the complimentarity, and indeed the very high quality, evident twixt the lyrics and the music composition/performance. A striking balance. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, this piece is extra-ordinary. A true high point in my BroJam experience. Much appreciated!

Very tuneful jazz/pop arrangement. Really sweet changes, solid performances by all, good lyrics that flow well and don't sound contrived. Very nice.

Super cool Bossa vibe on this one. It's as smooth as it gets

Love the feel , love the rhythm, easy listening

Smooth groove and mix. Very soothing sound.

Love the chords on this song with it's boss nova rhythm. It flows beautifully and is orchestrated nicely. I think I may have heard from this artist before and this voice reminds me so much of Michael Franks.

Very cool smooth Jazz...positive groove and very nice chord choices...the vocal was good and captured the emotion well...nice guitar work...very catchy and memorable song...band sounded great...very strong hook melody...the bridge was well crafted and set apart from the verses...
