Another Lyrics video has been posted to my YouTube channel, showcasing the “Heartbeat” lyrics (Dark Waters track 7).

This song has a really beautiful piano part. The interesting thing about it is that the piano is played by an artificial intelligence engine, ToonTrack’s EZKeys. I grabbed a bunch of random piano parts from various disparate MIDI files and was able to craft the tempo, chords and key structure around this song. The entire thing was done without listening to any of the other instruments. I used my guitar to figure out the chord changes and then I added chord mods (dim, maj7, min7, etc.) to transitions, etc. The result is what you hear and it is completely accidental. True digital art!

Enjoy!


Heartbeat Lyrics
Lyrics by Randy McQuilkin
Music by Jerry Boutot

I picked a faded flower off the ground
I looked up to the sky it seemed to make a sound
If I fell in love would you let me drown?
I know I’m different but I am not a clown

Now listen – listen to my heartbeat
Look down deep – can you see my fear
If you try you just might feel what I feel inside
But if I cry all you’d see is tears

Planet of lost souls we are like islands
Letting things get in the way like vanity and pride
What is this fear that keeps us blinded from the truth
When the only hope of life is to touch each other inside?

For inside there is a truth in all of us
But we hide and say that what we see is our only reality

Now listen – listen to my heartbeat
Look down deep – can you see my fear
If you try you just might feel what I feel inside
But if I cry all you’d see is tears
