Hi all. This is My latest song.
All comments welcome. Rob4580


I've been waiting

Verse
For just a little while I want to sit and watch the sunrise.
For just a little while I watch reflections in your eyes.

I've been waiting for tomorrow.
I've been waiting for a change.
I think it's time for second chances.
I think its time to take the stage

Bridge


Chorus

I've been waiting for tomorrow. (waiting)
I've been waiting for a change. (waiting)
I think it's time for second chances.
I think its time to leave the stage

Verse
Too many words unsaid I need to find the time to tell you.
I never realized you are healing for my soul.

Chorus

I've been waiting for tomorrow.
I've been waiting for a change.
I think it's time for second chances.
I think its time to leave the stage x2

Lovely melody, Rob. The trumpet is a nice touch. Excellent vocal as usual. Reminded me a bit of late period Jimmy Little.
Regards,
Leon

Another cracker...well done.
I REALLY like the simple guitar intro.
You need to deal with the s beginning sunrise though...it jumps.
Yes, I can hear Jimmy Little in the phrasing and warmth - nice catch Leon.
There is a sense of Jimmy Webb with Glen Campbell in the arrangement - little baroque touches that emphasize the melody.
REALLY nice arrangement.

I really like the lyrics and melody.
Instruments sound good.


If your looking for feedback, I'd suggest dumping the volume panning.

Hi Rob.
I like the melody and lyrics very much.
But ...... for me there seems to be a weird phaser thing going on though which is interfering with the gentler side of it.

I agree, it stands out at the 1:30 mark.

I liked the lyrics, vocal, and the trumpet. That sounded great. Correct the phase thing and you have a hugh winner on your hands.

This was a really great use of the _BALADAP.STY style, I feel! Really enjoyed the melody on this one as well - it all came together quite nicely! Thanks for sharing.

Rob,

I like it.

I agree with Ray - there is a Jimmy Webb/Glen Campbell sound/feel to this.

(and I hear the phase thing that others reference).

Cool song.

Hello Rob ...

I always enjoy your voice. It's smooth and full and has an intangible and indigenous aura of warmth.

I, too, think the little phase thing should be dialed back. But, that didn't stop me from enjoying the song. Wishing you the very best. Take care.

Alan

Rob, your voice is perfect for this fine ballad. Well produced other than the phasing. I’m not sure what is causing that. Nevertheless I enjoyed it, Tom

This is one of your best, IMHO. You have a terrific voice. Horns were great. Phasing issue is a problem, can you redo it? Worth the time, I think.

Dunno what's happening with the file. I've tried repeated times
and always get the phasing issue.

Irrespective of that it is a great write and is carried by a fine vocal!
