This song is the story of a love/hate relationship that went on for over fifteen years. They were both very good friends of mine and no one can say they didn’t try, but in the end they couldn’t make it work. I have lost contact over the years, but I sure hope they found some happiness in their lives. Everyone deserves some of that.

Little Voices


That first cool breath of winter feels like something's off this year

Could it be a warning sign or just the fact I came back here

Maybe this was a bad idea to try this one more time

A normal man would have walked away saying we can't make this right


I've been praying for a week now and it's gettin hard to see

If I can count on your forgiveness for the man I used to be

Guess it's just the ugly truth you can't out run the past

I hear those little voices saying we will never last


Times were tough and all that stuff in the baggage weighed me down

There ain’t no way on God’s green earth we can stay here in this town

Everybody looks at us They know the places that we’ve been

I hear the passing whispers saying here they go again


I've been praying for a week now and it's gettin hard to see

If I can count on your forgiveness for the man I used to be

Guess it's just the ugly truth you can't out run the past

I hear those little voices saying we will never last

INCREDIBLE!!! That guitar groove just sets it up from the first moment, and it never comes down! The energy just carries it along. Great chorus-really pays off. Guitar/Vocals/Mix all over the top. Great one Tom!! Take care. Greg

Hi Tom.

A superb track with a wonderful driving guitar sound and spot-on vocals.

A great mix mix with excellent stereo effects and loud without sounding over-compressed.

Got to be one of your best yet.

ROG.

Greg beat me to it,, all I wanted to say, but he says it so eloquently and spot on.

You can be very proud of this one.

Hi Tommy,

top notch again. Good write, self-evidently great vocals and harmonies and great playing.
Can't say it's my favourite because they are all outstanding.

Tommy this is probably your best to date. Everything about this is pro all the way. Of course I have always been in envy of your guitar chops, your vocals and writing abilities and on this one you took them all over the top!

This is a keeper.

Man... who hasn't lived that song at least a couple of times?

I like everything about this.

Great perspective on a common issue everyone has been through. Loved those guitars since that really took this to a different level. Just the right level of verb to make them sound liquid. Sweet solo and fills.

Nice lyric writing and superb vocal work. Harmonies are great and at the correct levels.

Very satisfying song to listen to.

My only nits... the opening drums were a bit wimpy. And.... yeah, I know you were pushing the 4 minute mark... BUT....I would have busted that 4 minute point wide open..... it really needed one more instrumental tag with a slowdown (rit) to that last chord.... but hey.... just nits and personal opinions.

Tom,

Another winner.

Nice opening guitar lick. Nice, tasty little licks throughout. Great tone.

A good write. A whole bunch of good phrases, giving "good moments" over and over.
A good "singing" melody. Strong chorus.

Strong vocal. Strong mix.

An excellent listen (bunch of 'em...). Infectious. "Pop-y"...cool.

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
