I like the way this one builds. Interesting lyric with a catchy chorus. Excellent backing.

Oh, this is a good production and a well done song. Even if this is not my preferred kind of music, I can easily hear that this is well made. Good work!

Well constructed song, Vic with a really engaging chorus. Nice build and a warm, lived-in vocal. Enjoyed it.

Leon

Wow, you paint images with words, melody, and an engaging feel. Peeling daisy pedals and revealing the ups and downs of love. Nicely done, Vic.

Hi Vic
You do these organic folk songs so well. This one has a kind of Steve Earle/Dylan vibe which I like. The song builds well with all the stringed instruments . I enjoyed this.
cheers
Gary.

Vic,

Liked it a lot—really cool folk feel to this. And your vocal matches up so well with the style; sits neatly in the mix. Catchy chorus as well. Good stuff!

Hope all is well with you,

Deej

Hi Leon.
Thanks. I like the "lived in" vocal. Sounds about right. Like an old pair of jeans.

Sounds simple but unique. I like the acoustic sound, not overdriven, and you can even hear the brushes in the drums, doesn't need a lot of percussion!!

Vic,
Good write! I like poetry and your phrasing on this. Good morphing from folky to more more harder style. The only thing I thought a guitar entry at 1:05 was a bit too loud. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Thanks Gary. You're probably right about the Steve Earle influence.

Thanks Ronnie.
I did debate whether to leave the drums out but I think they enhance the chorus.
