I couldn't say it any better.

As been noted this should win a grammy or two, best record of the year, best song of the year, and best new artist.

Thanks Josie. Bud heard something in this that turned out to be spot on. I had to set it aside for awhile until I found the guitar real tracks in the chorus that fixed the problem.Tom

Tom,

You just keep steppin' up to the plate and knocking it outta the park.

The production and mix on this are stunning. All the right things at all the right times.

Your vocals get more confident all the time.

Your writing has evolved to that "solid every time" place. The lyrics are natural, smooth, perfect prosody throughout. They fall on the ear beautifully. Your melodies are knockin' me over... Pro combo.

Stunning. Really.

I really liked the drive throughout the entire song.

This could make air-play

Trevor, Glad you liked the write. Thanks for mentioning the harmony. Tom

Tom, there's little left to say about this -- seriously.
Everybody has laser beamed in on the excellence
re the write, the vocal, the arrangement and the
amazing mix. Having done my share of mixing off
and on over the decades I'm in awe of how you
can pull this off with that number of tracks. Amazing.

And, at the risk of being redundant, I want to add that
you have a RARE talent and that is the ability to write
lyrics that can appeal to a very broad spectrum of
listeners - across all economic and social strata your
lyrics can capture about anybody who loves music.

Well done!

It may be too late for this years release but how nice would it be to open up BIAB/RB, hit the radio button and streaming, steaming hits like this fill your headphones or speakers?

Good song, mix, arrangement and performance. I enjoyed your details shared with Sergio.
Charlie, I was just thinking about that radio station the other day. I hope the idea didn't die on the vine. Thanks for the nice words. Tom

Thanks you two, I really appreciate this endorsement. As I eluded to earlier, I have been taking a much closer look at the lyrics lately. I have found that the real magic is in the rewrite. It's never there the first time through. It has to be nudged along and nurtured to reach it's full potential. I don't think I fully grasped the concept in the past, but I'm starting to get it now. Thanks again, Tom

Hey Tom.

A power ballad! Great. Sounds like a Bon Jovi song.

I loved the whole thing, but like Alyn, I was waiting for the Richie Sambora solo!

Excellent vocals and a professional mix.

One of your very best.
