"The postmarks keep changing
They show where you’ve been
Lost and found
And then lost again"

Nice.

Good job on all aspects of this, Fred. Just the right tracks to do this type of song (ah...I remember those times...). Excellent mix.

This had a Jerry Jeff Walker vibe, I thought... (always a good thing)..

Every time I think I know what I'm gonna say, Floyd already said it. This is so pleasant and easy to listen to!! Take care. Greg

Very pleasant song and evokes the influences you mentioned (Neil Young in particular for me on this one).

Nice one that well stood the test of time.

Enjoyed it all -- the vocal, the arrangement and the mix.

"I held you for a while

But I couldn’t hold you back"

That is a gem.
