    Well, I'd say you really, REALLY need to get a metronome or drum machine and start working on learning rhythm and time.

    but im not looking for drums...no time or beat is needed if the bass is the music and the voice are the words...it is a song, bass and voice

    I didn't say yuo need to have the drums playing in the background. I said that you need a metronome or drum machine to help you learn time and rhythm, because the song doesn't really have either of those. Time signatures and rhythms can change in a song, but if you have no time or rhythm to it at all then the song will sound disjointed and unclear, and that's a quick way to lose the listener's interest.

    i think i get it....

    some sort of beat to the music and words...like make them all fourth notes and make the words have that same beat...

    if its that, then thanks for the help...if not please explain a little more

    That's pretty much it (I assume by fourth you mean quarter), although the words don't have to follow the same rhythm. Just listen to music; just about all forms of non-classical music have a steady beat or rhythm you can tap your foot to.
