Hi All,

Here's something called Light Years.

All the graves are in the backyard
And people move on there’s no doubt
Now I see the changing of the guard
Separate pathways a different route

No need to wave flags in the air
The stars won’t see them anyway
I sometimes just look up and stare
Still the same sky different day

And it's full speed into the light years
Shift through all the tired dreams
There’s a new moon on the mountain
If I can fly this old machine

Take a bus to New York City
And see your face in every mile
This old Trailways is a pity
It can run but it can’t fly

And it's full speed into the light years
Shift through all the tired dreams
There’s a new moon on the mountain
If I can fly this old machine

Your album would fit nicely on the Dylan/Lennon stack, Bob. What a good song. You came up with the perfect melody to present the lyrics, and sang them with feeling. Well said.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Love the arrangement! Very effective the way you bring in the electric and the choir.

Acoustic guitars sound great, are you doing additional processing on them? Everything sounds great actually, nice mix through the 'phones.

Really good, Bob smile

Bob,

"All the graves are in the backyard..."

A great opening line.
And it maintains that quality throughout.
An Excellent write!

An excellent Band and a terrific production/arrangement.
Maintains the "live band" feel/sound with just the right amount of build to keep it interesting/moving. And an excellent mix.

Your usual (so good) signature vocals!

So good!

Bob,
The world weariness in your vocal is a great fit with the lyrics, which paint an interesting picture... feels like we are being dragged into an uncertain future!
The simple instrumentation with everything sounding so clear is tasteful- the choir a good choice.
Btw-The line about Trailways made me think of highways which will soon be without Greyhound buses up here in Canada.
Fine songwriting.

Robert

Great sound, Bob. I like the way you've altered the meaning of 'light years' in the lyrics (which are very good).

Nice mix and build - the synth was especially nice. Poetic write, and as Robert said, world-weary vocals to match.

Well done - I enjoyed listening! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
