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
Oh my where will we go from here

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!

Melancholy and sweet. Well done.

1. Real Pedal Steel
