Let There Be Reverb

Music and Lyric by Dennis Davison

 

From a seed of inspiration to your final curtain call

Revel in the sound sensation, worship at his sonic wall

Heíll bend your flats if sharps are what you crave

And sweeten sour notes if you behave

He will fix your unsure pitch until you take your encore bow

He is ancient, he is future, he is of the here and now

And when you canít define the tune itís true

Heíll have a pinch of fairy dust for you

Let there be reverb, the echoes dance inside your head

Let there be reverb, the old man said.

Let there be a sound cathedral

Empty space as big as time

Let there be reverberations

Endless noise regenerations by design

From the caverns and the canyons, river deep and mountain high

Borrowed from the atmosphere, a grand effect as big as sky

And from a new perspective you will hear

Ambiguous crescendos, loud and clear

Confidante to mythic muses

Heíll anoint you as he chooses

Heíll affix your song with tricks

With orchestras or rocks and sticks

Let there be reverb, the echoes dance inside your head

Let there be reverb, the old man said.
