I was remixing songs and thought I might repost this song. Janice sings a beautiful harmony.


The song is a love letter to my two children.


I Will (2-2-13)


I will build you a strong house to spare you heartache
and to keep you from drowning a sturdy new boat
I will search for good omens to guide through life
I will sing you jubilees for your everlasting soul


when scallywags call I will turn them away
for your hunger pangs I will dig you a row
I will rock you to sleep from a long day of strife
and when you curse my name my silence I will hold


I will kiss you goodby cause I know you can't stay
I will swallow my tears until I'm alone
I will sleep with your pillow all through the night
If I can't be your rock let me be your stone


may the love that I woven warm you someday
then memories of me might stave off the cold
may the lessons I've taught you fit you just right
and the old house I built you, will you one day call home

This is really good! You two are excellent together. I liked the orchestration build up starting with a single guitar to a full band then repeating the process. Excellent!

Lot to like here, especially for me the dynamics and the rhyme pattern, which took it up another level IMHO.

Ms. Janice does a grand job alongside your vocal.
A lovely, plaintive feel to this remix.
COOL.

I remember this fine song- you write avoiding cliches and turning familiar images in a memorable, personal way.
Nice build to this version with that almost acapella break at 3:00... and of course Janice`s unmatched way of supporting your lead vocal.
Really, really good!

Robert

Thanks for mentioning my small part in this. It's one of my favorites and as I
sang it at a friend's wake it will always remain in my heart.
