Some of you may still remember a Dutch song contest we participated in, one or two years back.
Those may also remember that we did not win frown well.....

Anyway, that was not the original version. Anne-Marie adjusted the lyrics for the contest's theme.

This however, is the original version, with the original video. Shot at Anne-Marie's place.
(Which is now my place too ;-))

Hope you'll like it, as always any comments are welcome.

This song is featured on our album The Road

Lyrics

thoughts keep entering my mind
as I watch the hours go
and I feel the days flow
doubt has taken over me
and I can't begin to tell you how I feel

after all these years
of firmly believing in it all
my look has changed
new love's embraced

when you left your home back then
being only 17 it was the greatest thing you'd ever need
flying on the wings of love
and now you can recall the way you used to be

and every time I'm here
an uncertain future getting near
though your love's still strong
you won't be here for long

Oh my where will we go

CHORUS

Oh my where will we go from here

Wow, what a stunning piece. It has a haunting, ethereal quality to it. I loved the slow build in the later half of the song too!

Not a thing I'd change here - thank for sharing smile

This is perfect! I really loved the instrumentation you used. Plus the video was icing on a cake that was already iced! Loved it!

This is a keeper.

Rob, there must have been some VERY GOOD material in that contest for this song to not win!! This song is beautiful and your vocal is perfect (never off-pitch always spot on). You two (in my opinion) put up the best all around audio/video production we have on the forum. Great work! Thanks, Torrey

I am continually amazed at your work. I am humbled at times to realize how limited my musical education has been. You are going places I cannot yet imagine. I learned what little I do know playing in some unmentionable clubs and blind pigs throughout the south. At 71 I have a long way to go and a short time to get there. Wonderful job!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

A wonderful, bittersweet and evocative piece. The lyric is so good and,Rob, your voice is always so pure. I was so taken in with the video I had to watch it twice - will go back for more listens, I am sure. Thi8s was a real treat. The two of you are accomplished entertainers. I think I speak for most folks on the forum when I say we appreciate the great music you share with us. It was mesmerizing!

Hi, Rob and Anne-Marie !


It´s been said but I have
to say it too - this is
a very beautiful song and
so delicately performed too.
It has all the elements of
a hit tune - could go into
a movie or a musical too !!!

Cheers
Dani

Rob & Anne-Marie,

Delicate, romantic and beautiful- for me one of your best ballads.
Your vocal is flawless, Rob.
This does have the feel of a movie song ... and the video is stylish and evocative.
Well done!
