Thanks (It could also be Australiana:)

It is a sad story and you tell it very well Peter.
Not sure about the voice doubling. For me it takes away the lonely man idea and he's not alone.

Still good though,

Vic

All my best,

Your guitar intro hooked me in, and then the 60 seconds of guitar at the end was just...wow. You don't fail to disappoint, that's for sure.

Well, I (Janice) cried when I first read the lyric and then I cried again when I listened. These words are powerful as is the accompaniment. Leon's voice sounds so plaintive, which is just right for this theme and the band, especially Peter's guitar was a perfect match.

We often talk about how everybody has something they are dealing with and these lines represent
that so well:

"Everybody’s got their own little tragedy
I’m just a man I’m not unique [not all all]"

Powerful lyric, vocals, band and superb outro!

And I (Bud) have little to add to the above other than the mix is excellent!

Well done y'all!

J&B
