This is good. The piano is super and the strings outstanding. You voice was very good. The only problem that I had was that it was a little difficult for me to understand some of the lyrics.

Hi guys,here's the lyrics for the song as requested,also you'll notice some section information and notes included.

Lives and Places (Slow piano ballad).
Verse 1.
One grey winter morn
Found myself walking down the street
Passers by not looking out
Moving on,not stopping here.

Verse 2.
The buildings look so cold
The life within has got so old
Time waits for no man
Not for old men no.

Chorus.
Lives and Places
Time and spaces
Events and changes
That's life's guarantee for all
That's life's guarantee for all.

(Instrumental section)

Verse 3.
Sitting by the river
Flowing on by
Birds hurrying round for food
To keep the cold at bay.

Verse 4.
I think it's time to do something
Change my way of life
To go to places new and fresh
To get away from all the strife.

(Repeat chorus)

Coda.

(Repeat chorus with variants)

Thats life's only call
Lives and Places
No great changes
Lives and Places.

Hello Riccled,

Nice work. Your choices of RT's, chord progression and arrangement captured the contemplative mood of your song.

Thanks for that folks,the wonders of realtracks yet again,although I did enjoy playing the bass myself and the strings and the solo sax,so the real tracks can't take all the credit
