SAILING WITH YOU
Words and music by
Torrey Bliss ©2021

No wind is blowing
Still we'll raise the sail
Out there's our future
Calm or stormy gale
As long as I'm with you
It'll be alright

Our future's bright
Our love it will prevail
We'll stay the course
We'll end this journey well
We'll ride the winds of life
And find our way

I'll be sailing with you
To a distant land reached by so few
Sharing each moment along the way

This ship we're in
It's stood the waves and wind
It's stronger now
Than when we first began
We've built this dream together
We can't stop now

I'll be sailing with you
To a distant land reached by so few
Sharing each moment along the way

I'll be sailing with you
Each day bringing treasures anew
Not looking back as we're sailing away

Some days the clouds still hide the sun
We're looking up for we have only just begun

Hi Torrey,

This is a very good Pop song with good commercial potential.

Everything works really well - I would like to hear your solo vocals a bit louder. The volume is perfect in the choruses and also the bridge.

Everything else - perfect.

Best Regards
Nigel

Love the lyrics. The music didn't grab me straight away - just kind of grew on me. By the time it was over I was ready to hear it again. smile

Very nice. Liked the flute parts, and your usual flair for harmonies on the guitar.

A most enjoyable song.

Torrey,

For me, this is Pop Music at its best. The song, arrangement and vocal sound radio-ready and hit-worthy.

The flute is genius and gives the song a special identity.

Loved it!

The piano part reminded me of Gilbert O'Sullivan...the build to the chorus is great...I was really hankering to get there and it didn't disappoint.
Your added parts really make this a Bliss Tune.
Torrey, it was a while between songs for a bit but this last set has been a welcome wonder.
Inspiring too.

Wow, what an outstanding display of talent. Excellent lyrics with top-notch vocals and perfect harmonies.
"Some days the clouds still hide the sun
We're looking up for we have only just begun"
What an encourage and realistic view of life's adventures. There are not enough pluses to add to a big A for this one, Torrey.

Torrey,

Killer Pop production. Those Drums sound great. Piano was a great choice.

Excellent vocals and BGVs.

Mix is solid.

You make music that is a joy to listen to...

Real nice Ballad with a beat, loved the lyrics and the overall feel of the song, I honestly felt up a key would have worked better i.e. vocals .

just a wee thought .

Thanks

Man, you are on a roll these days, Torrey!

Such a great sound, pop music at it's best I think.

Quoting floyd: "You make music that is a joy to listen to..."

That pretty much sums it up I think, really well done!

Another Torrey classic, enjoyed the romantic lyrics about the sailing on the ship of life. "No wind is blowing/Still we'll raise the sail/Out there's our future/Calm or stormy gale" great introduction for the subject.

Beautiful chord progression. Really good arrangement, the piano and the flute are very nice evoking some 70's mood. Quality vocal track.

Janne
