My word!!! It's 15 past midnight here, and I'm listening to this ... wow. Had problems with my browser, wouldn't let me play this song, hence my lateness with my comments. Regardless: WOW. I can't articulate my feelings at this hour on listening to this, but: one of the most beautiful songs I've heard you sing, Floyd. Full credit to you and to the Merritts. I may post again, in the morning, when I'll hopefully be more articulate. One line, though: "always hoping you'll be on the other side". We've ALL been there, the way you write has universal appeal, because you talk to some of the deepest feelings that any human who has even remotely lived a little has had, and you know how to "press our buttons", emotionally speaking. CONGRATULATIONS to ALL responsible for this small masterpiece :-)

Some AMAZING lyrics here:

so many years out on the edge
i'm still crawling through my wreckage
always hoping you'll be on the other side
and desperately hoping to stop the slide

Does not get any better than that!!!

Beautiful job by all involved!!! Happy New Year!! Greg


Greg - Thanks for the nice review!! Bud deserves the credit for those lines. I tweaked a couple of words or phrases, but basically, that's ALL the boy from Georgia.

Stellar work as always.


Thanks, TM!!

a remarkable song !

First impression: It sounds brilliant. Very nice lyrics, very convincingly sung. Love that unobtrusive backing track.

And those BGV - nobody does them like Janice !!!

The echo part came unexpectedly, but was very effective.

Just great.

A happy and most of all healthy New Year to you all,

Stefan


Thank you Stefan. We appreciate your kind remarks and support. We wish the absolute best to you and Maha!

Love the "calling, calling" bit at 2:39, and loved the ending too.

Nice way to end off the year I think wink


We appreciate that, Dave....

Excellent vocal and Janice's harmony blends so well with your voice.


Thanks, Scott. Those lines (both) were a mix of Bud's ideas and me expanding on them - so a CO-Write!!
And thanks for the note on the blend - I agree!!
