“Have You Here” (Jim Fusco original song)

By Jim Fusco:

And, welcome back!  Today is Wednesday, and here on the best acoustic music blog ever conceived, that means it’s time for an original song!  Today, I bring you a cut off of my new album, “Halfway There”, available now at http://jimfusco.com.

This song is the most personal one on the album and is really the most blunt song I’ve written in a long time.  It’s not meant to be angry or anything- it’s meant to ask questions of both myself and someone else.

Basically, I’m saying: “Hey, I’ve been trustworthy for over six years and still I feel that I’m not being fully trusted.”  The song pretty much speaks for itself after that.

This was the last song I wrote for the album, save for the bonus track.  To me, I can definitely tell that this was written after the bulk of the other songs.  Songs for an album always have a “feel” to them and it took me quite a while to record this track and make it “fit”.  But, I love the tune and the chord progression.  Fans of Stone Temple Pilots will hear the similarity between the riff of this song and the one in “Plush”, which I was listening to a lot at the time.  I didn’t realize it until afterward.  But, the similarity is just like an, “Oh, yeah, I see what you mean,” more than anything.

So, I hope you enjoy this original song.  It’s really one of my favorites off of the new album and the chord progression to the chorus is one of my favorites to play, too.  I’ll be back next Tuesday with yet another acoustic cover song on my normal day for posting music videos.  Have a great day!

This is one in a series of acoustic cover songs, original music, and free mp3 downloads here on the Laptop Sessions Music Video Blog.

  1. Hey the link worked in the email Jim. Now I figured out how to get to the blogs for the song. The link on the youtube page is still not working but maybe you havent fixed it yet. I noticed chris has the same problem on his page unless I hit the (more) link Maybe it has to do with the link being on the first line because all the links work except the ones on the first line. Could be my web browser also. Anyho enough about that I’ll talk to you later!

  2. I never knew you guys had a third partner Jeff. I’ll have to check him out also!!!

  3. Dan, what web browser are you using? I’m on Firefox and the links seem to be working. Is there a specific song that doesn’t work? I’d love to fix it if so.

    Thanks so much for watching! If you enjoyed this song from Jim, you should definitely check out the full album streaming / for sale/download on his website — jimfusco.com.

    Take care and come back soon!
