Give it light under the sun
Hey now girl
Am I the one

We don't hold more than today
Gonna push our cares away
Give them chase and make them run
Hey now girl
Am I the one

You know I need the rain today
Gonna cleanse my blues away
Give it slow and get it done
Hey now girl
Am I the one

Give it slow and get it done
Hey now girl
Am I the one
Give it slow and get it done
Hey now girl
Am I the one

Bob,

Can't imagine how anything about this could be any better.

Good lyric, good vocal, good BAND, good production, good mix.

A lot of the TV shows we watch these days have current "alt" type music playing during some scenes and at the end when the credits roll....
This could EASILY be used for that.

I read the lyrics first and then the instruments and saw a couple dance tracks listed. Got a little worried but as soon as I heard the song start, I was assuaged. Classic Bob Dean. A real pleasure to get on the forum page and find a new song of yours waiting. Makes my day. Great work as always.

YEP!! That's what I say --especially about the "credit song" thing. Really good song on all of those levels, Bob.

This classic you.
The drums don't seem to fit to my ears...perhaps to forward in the mix or too present.
Nice progression and melody.

I like the song and your vocals, and the production is pretty good.

I would prefer the vocals to be less "in your face" to better fit the atmosphere of the rest of the band, but that's just a personal preference.

I noticed while listening that I'm always waiting for something that doesn't happen.
I think the song structure with 5 verses (and 2 acoustic interludes) would benefit from a chorus to satisfy the waiting.

I like this song, Bob!

I agree with Floyd: I can hear this song as credits roll at the end of a show.

Production sounds mighty good. I like the guitar at the start and the build as the song progresses.

Brilliant, brilliant. I loved it. Made me a little more upbeat than I was before listening to it. And if you can do that with music (no matter whether the song is happy or sad), you've done your job, I think. Bravo. Going back for a second listen now :-) Thanks for sharing :-)

Great production Bob! I liked it all the way through. I thought you did a fantastic job of building the instruments right from the beginning. The guitars sounded really good and I thought you chose a really good drum track to carry it through. Your use of the steel was stellar. It presented a sound that really sticks in your head. Thanks for posting.

Brad

Hey Bob,

I really enjoyed this with your signature style as an artist.

I don't agree with the comment that asked for a chorus. As this is folk and singer-songwriter, you have both the right and a huge latitude to focus on the vibe and the feeling, which you have done and which is your forte.

Also, the vocals are the highlight of the song, also part of your signature, and don't need to be different in any way.

I am about call to Dylan to tell him he needed a better chorus in Blowin' in the Wind, and it would sound better if he had used an artificial female robot vocalist for the vocals, and a sound that sounded a little more like Duran Duran, with more bass-y stuff.

Never stop being yourself man.
