A little song about invisible people. All BIAB, with a dash of Dim Pro and Mirolslav.

What The River Knows

©2014 Robert Randall Burke


It's a hard world
And it gets harder every day
As all your hopes and dreams
Slip away.
It's not my world
It's just the one I'm passin' through
Tryin' to survive
For one more day.

Life is a river
That carries you where it flows
And you will never learn
What the river knows.

You can't see me
When you pass me on the street
As if you did
You'd share in my defeat.
You don't know me
But I once was just like you
And the life that I once had
Was just as sweet.

Nicely done ballad, good vocals and mix. I like the instruments you chose. It is a message about things going on that are all too far common. Well done.

Bob, This is so well written and sung. This may be my new favorite of yours.

"You can't see me
When you pass me on the street
As if you did
You'd share in my defeat." Inspired writing. Bravo! I really like the melody also. Great job! Tom

Hi Bob.

Beautiful and emotive song.

Great vocal delivery over a very well put together backing.

I had to listen to it again, just to hear that fabulous intro.

Regards, Roger.

Hard not to like that one! (I liked it).
Sincere vocals - poignant lyrics and a memorable tune. Good song.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Excellent, Bob. Everything.

Good write. A powerful message in a tight package.

Love the melody. Love your vocal.

Nice production. Simple and full at the same time...

A great listen.

Bob you put so much emotion in this song...it's as if you have been there before...yet sometimes we can empathize without ever having experienced it personally. Great insight to a sadly growing population of our world.
Your vocals were just great and I liked your choice of instruments. Great song writing!
Sonny

Beautiful song Bob!! Lyrics are deep (no pun intended) and emotional. Absolutely love the way that elec gtr fits the vibe. Vocal is your standard superb. To me, when the piano plays solo, it has a little bit of a plastic sound. You consistently do excellent work and this is no exception. Great job!! Take care. Greg

Well it took quite a while but you've finally written and recorded a song to replace "Carolina Girl" as my favorite from you. For a variety of reasons I could list including such a top notch production. This really sounds ready for radio airplay.

I think this is one of your best vocals yet. Your emotional vocal fits the song style and vibe perfectly.

It doesn't hurt that to me, your vocals and again this song style, has an uncanny feel of a Charlie Rich performance. That fact adds to the ease of closing my eyes and imagining the music coming off the radio playing on my favorite classic country station.

Excellent song on every level and I enjoyed my listen so very much on this one.
