Hi All,

Here's a song about old promises and second chances...

Also, my last song for 2018… smile

[Link no longer valid]

I'm taking off for the sun
How bout you, climb aboard
I'm taking off for the sun
How bout you, baby climb aboard

I'll turn the ship when the nighttime comes
I'll melt the ice when the summer turns and runs
I'm taking off for the sun

I'm taking off for the sun
Where are you, don't be late
I'm taking off for the sun
Where are you, baby don't be late

I'll shoot the moon when you need a hired-gun
I'll reconnect when our signal comes undone
I'm taking off for the sun

I'll make the coffee when the morning comes
I'll paint the stars when we're out of fun
I'm taking off for the sun
Oh I'm taking off for the sun
Yeah I'm taking off for the sun

All BIAB Tracks:
2474: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085
2505: Piano, Electric, HeldChords 085
2914: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Folky16thsBrent Ev16 085

As always - thanks for listening!

Bob,

An excellent "simple" write (not as simple as it seems - a sign of a writer who "knows what he's doing...)

The BAND is excellent. You have found a sound that works perfectly for you songs. Sounds like a band that has been backing you for years (and they know what they are doing, too).

Sounds like a record.

Terrific.

Bob,
A very nice build to this- both instrumentally and in your vocals.
I love the way that guitar track holds the mood without being obtrusive and then comes out for the lead.
Very cool write, performance and production.

Robert

"I'll shoot the moon when you need a hired-gun

I'm taking off for the sun"

Man, what a way to close out 2018. GREAT write....and vocal and production (love the build) to back up that write!

Those guitar fills are perfect for the song.

Kudos!

Hi, Bob !

This tune must be one of your best !
At least is my favourite Bobtune
from now on ! You´re off for the sun !
Maybe, just maybe it would be better to
try mars instead ? I´ve heard it can be
quite warm closer to the sun ?

Just anxious for your wellbeing
as you know !:))

Cheers
Dani

I love everything about this! Man, I could listen to you you sing all day, just something about your voice that gets me.

Killer job on the production too, great dynamics and build, and the mix sounds great through the 'phones.

Well done!
