BandRockSinger/Songwriter

I've been around for a while. I would like to try putting my talent (well, I guess I'm a bit biased eh?) to work. Hopefully, someone with the right connections will think the same.

Biography

Music addicted since a 4/5 year old kid, that's when I got my first drum kit.

From then - my Dad made me learn bass guitar to help him better himself on the guitar. Always better to have a bass under yer guitar when you honing your chops!

From there learned guitar (self taught), tinker with keys and saxophone.

Been writing songs and singing all along the way. Just recently got my DAW studio up and running and trying to pull some of my music styles together.

I really do not fall into a typical genre - and I have written tunes in all veins.

I am not currently performing - though I have in years past. Really difficult to find suitable talented people...believe me. I've tried.

So - now with the advent of Sonicbids and the Net - I figure it can't hurt to see if my talent in music has value for someone. It would be great if that be the case.

Well...that's it for now. Feel free to contact me if you need more info on me.

Toodles!

Lyrics

Friends But Not Be Lovers

Written By: Ric Bonnell

I met her out on the Avenue
I really wasn't looking for love
She kinda looked my way
Her eyes were saying something
I couldn't move with my heart broke

"She's got such a beautiful face," I said to my friend
She's really got my head in a bind
She's really got me reelin' I got a funny feelin'
I kissed her hand and she walked away

She said; we'll be friends but not be lovers tonight .
We'll be friends but not be lovers

I went home with my heart broke
I had to see this girl one more time
Started writing letters hoping to feel better
She comes back with the same line (damn it)

I'm texting her like a mad man
She's the only thing on my mind
I'm trying to feel better writing these here letters
But she comes back with the same old line

She says; we'll be friends but not be lovers tonight.
She says; we'll be friends but not be lovers...

We Two

Written By: Ric Bonnell

We Two

We go floating down the river
Drifting slowly with each other
We’re just holding one another
We two

Heartbeat sound the sun is rising
Your eyes meet mine oh my darling
We’re just kissing one another
We two

Love is floating all around us
Birds will call our names forever
Touch your face and taste your lips
We two

Is this just a dream I’m having in the night
I pray I don’t awake

If it’s just a dream I’m having in the night
I pray it comes night after night

Heartbeat sound the sun is rising
Your eyes meet mine oh my darling
We’re just kissing one another
We two

Love is floating all around us
Birds will call our names forever
Touch your face and taste your lips
We two

Clouds

Written By: Ric Bonnell

Clouds

It’s one in the morning and there’s clouds in the sky of my mind and I start to erase them
One at a time
Out of far reaches the clouds in my mind
Arranged in a way
I don’t understand the clouds in my mind that get in the way, ohhhh.

Doot doot doot doot doot doot doot.

Black stripes in the corner perpendicular lines crowd away into sublime arrays with nothing to hide
Excuse me but wasn’t a cloud there one day
Just hiding behind
The space in my mind where clouds hang around and they love to stay, ohhhh.

Doot doot doot doot doot doot doot.

It’s one in the morning and there’s clouds in the sky of my mind and I start to erase them
One at a time
Out of far reaches the clouds in my mind
Arranged in a way
I don’t understand the clouds in my mind that get in the way, ohhhh.

Into You

Written By: Ric Bonnell

Into You

Buttercups and butterflies
Summer breezes blowing free
This feeling’s in the air
My karma comforts me

Into you, I sigh
Into you, I cry

Falling star show your appeal
Stormy days can make me feel
Like lying on the ground
With rain drops over me

Into you, I sigh (Not a word is spoken)
Into you, I die (Not one heart is broken)
Just we two know why (It’s a secret from them)
Let this song give you life, it will open up your mind
