Last year I woke up one morning and suddenly for the first time in my life I realized that I’m not just getting older , I AM OLD. The result of that early morning revelation was this song. I appreciate all that take the time to listen and comment. Tom

There’s Only So Much Time

I’d love to tell you I’m not scared of growing old
I’m not sure I can sell you on something you already know

That’s when we find there’s only so much time


I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time


I hope I remember when we fell in love
it was a cold november but it turned out warm enough
I guess I'm more than OK with an early fall
At the end of the day it was worth it all


I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time


Live our lives in the day to day
Never think it will go away
all the love and dreams we’ve found
one day will come crashing down

Think too much it’ll mess you up
And just when you think you’ve had enough
Along comes a vision and then you see
clear as day this was meant to be

I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time

Tom,

What a great sound! Everything, absolutely EVERYTHING about this is as professional as anything out there in the market place. You really have outstanding production chops. I am constantly amazed at how incredible your mixes sound. There there's your signature vocals... first class!

Really, really, REALLY enjoyable.

Regards,
Noel

P.S. In relation to...

Now here it is a whole year later and the best revelation is that you're still here and pumping out great songs....

Great write, mix, production and performance.

Enjoyed this a lot and can so relate to it....

Tom,

All I can say is that I love this as much as some of my favorite Dylan tunes.

I am simply stunned.

Brilliant.

Noel, those are wise words. I will be addressing that bar revision in short order. Thanks for the wonderful review. Tom

Hi Tommy,

There appears to be a lot of deep introspection within this well thought out song
You have sung, orchestrated, and condensed it all into a beautiful song

Tom,

A beautiful write. You are really packing a wallop lately in your lyric... so full of thought. "From the heart" lyrics.

Beautiful production and mix. Everything sounds great. The piano is particularly nice.

Your vocals continue to pack a punch, too.

Super.

Scott, it was amazing the way the steel and fiddle real tracks layed in there. I'm constantly surprised at the way BIAB seems to know what I was thinking. Tom
