Sorry for the third song in quick succession posted on here. It seems I tend to work in bursts ... a few songs at once, then nothing for ages.

Anyway, here's my latest and probably (hopefully!) last one for a while now. Hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by and listening and commenting - your feedback is always helpful and always welcome!

PRIORITY

A writer once wrote
That the most important thing in this world
Was not love

That sometimes some things take
Priority

What do you think? What do you see?

***

A reader once thought
That the most important thing in this world
Was indeed love

That sometimes certain things take
Priority ... and yet love

Remained his destiny ...

What do you feel?

***
In this world
Where we don't feel
Or come across
Anything real

Is love worth a try
For you and I
Or do some things
Come first in life?

What's on your mind?

***
Let me know,
So I may know
Which way to go ...

Let me know,
So I may see
Eternity

So I may know
If it is there
For you and me.

Or if other things
Take priority.

Nice write,
As I listened and read the lyrics, I was thinking this would be a great song for a big voice and personality like Barbara Streisand.

Beautiful message.

Lovely backtrack. Another excellent vocal. I agree with CaptainMoto. I think this could translate to a big vocal.

Very nice song. Love the lyrics. I think the voice suits the song perfectly. It has an intimate presence.

HI James ...

I've said this many times before but offer no apology for my redundancy: You are so good these spoken word songs. I always enjoy your work. You always pick the best backing tracks for your songs. A very provocative lyric that causes the listener to pause and think about what you just said. Another excellent track, my friend. Loved it!

Wishing you and yours the very best. Pleaese be safe ...

Alan
