Sem Título 2.png

Hi dear steemians this is my first entry in OpenMic contest.

First, I have to say thanks to my good friend @pedromrmourato for his amazing talent and for introducing me to the open mic, and my good friend Bertilio Santos - your voice is unbelievable!!
This is an original song called “You've been there", I hope you guys enjoy it and I'm looking forward to read your thoughts about it.

A very special thanks to all the OpenMic community (musicians and music lovers) and to our sponsors @pfunk and @luzcypher for making this possible for all of us.

One love.


You've been there

Is all I want right now,
From you
'Cause you drag me down

Be Quiet,
Listen to what I have to say,
My words
You won't drag them away, noooo

I wanted to show you how
life could be easy, if you
just let me hold you
You and I
We knew the dangers
there's no need to be strangers

Refrão 2x:
You've been there (3x)

I'll never be your clown again

If we ever due part
I hope
you get a brand new start, ooohhh

I wanted to show you how
Life could be easy, if you
Just let me hold you
You and I
We knew the dangers
there's no need to be strangers

You've been there (3x)

I'll never be your clown again

Bridge (2x)
Why do we get back what we throw out
Your voice echoes but I can hear no sound

Refrão 2x:
You've been there (3x)

I'll never be your clown again

Bridge (4x)
Why do we get back what we throw out
Your voice echoes but I can hear no sound



Great performance, guys - congratulations on hitting top place in Open Mic with it!

@jaytaylor thank you for your kind words.
Let me tell you that i checked your blog and i love your Secret Garden painting ;)
Congratulations you have an amazing talent!!!
Maybe in a near future i can buy one of your painting for my house.
All good for you.
One love

Paulo, you are most welcome <3

I'm glad you like that painting - if I still have it when you are a Steemit megastar (which won't be long!), I will be happy to trade it for some of your Steem dollars - or fiat, if you prefer. I would LOVE knowing that it lived with a beautiful soul who loves it :D

All things good to you, too, Paulo - keep playing! You rock! <3

With love, Jay

What an utterly amazing performance.

You guys just keep showcasing some amazing talent. Congratulations once again. Keep them coming.

Que bom :) Muito obrigado por isso. My written Portuguese is rusty, but your song is so very awesome, @paulobassman. I never even knew Steemit even had an Open Mic competition. Who nows maybe one day I'll give it a shot too.

I liked and sub'd from my YT channel, Positive777, as well as followed, upvoted and resteemed here.

Thanks for bringing some sunshine into the steemit world :)

@positivesynergy obrigado pelas palavras 😁

Only that I passed through Lisboa into Europe on an awesome cruise ship from living in Brazil about 6 years many years ago now. Lisbon is a beautiful city. Where do yo live?

I lived in Lisbon for 30 years but 7 years ago i moved to Algarve ;)

@ilazramusic thank you so much. It makes us realy happy that you liked and listend to the song more then once ;)
I love the way you harmonize with your back vocals, your song this week is amazing.

I would love to record a bass line in your song ;)

@paulobassman If you do it i'll be really honored!, thank you so much for enjoy my entry, you have all the permissions to make that bass line jaja.

Much love and good vibes for you and your group!

And one question: why isn't Bertilio here on Steemit? he probably would have waaaay much success on the platform jajaja

@ilazramusic so i will record a bassline over your song and send it to you it will be a plesure to do it ;)
One love

Awesome gentlemen! Paulo, I love the way your basslines compliment each of the songs you play. Though subtle at times, without you at the bottom, the songs just wouldn't be the same. NICE, brother!

@passion-ground i am so glad you like it and thank you very much for your words.
I always try to keep the bass in the right place for what the music needs without overpowering the song!!!!
One love

Awesome performance! Love your song SO much. Can't wait to hear more.
