Lyrics
It's not the way
you're closer than a brother
it's not the way
you laid your hand on me
it's not the way
you taught me like no other
but you gave away your life to set me free

take my heart
tell me what needs changin
take my heart
draw me close to you
take my heart
you are my good foundation
i will only find my life is hid in you

Lord you are higher than my thinkin
and your ways are hard to understand
without your love
i know i'd be sinkin
there would be no place for me to stand


I was livin in a hopeless situation
fill the silence to avoid the confrontation
while i wandered further from my destination
slip back fall and stumble in the wrong direction
i always thought that love was only for my eyes
i only knew the sound of empty lonely cries
i didn't know that love went deeper down inside
cause i never listened to the words you whispered when i closed my eyes
i heard you callin but i thought that i was better than
anything you had to say was only for some other man
and i could walk away because i had a better plan
numb my mind pretend that i was happenin

you called out to my heart
i turned away
you came searchin

without love
Really nice track. The guitar reminds me of the Deja Vu era Stills. Your use of loops was very good. Hand percussion may be a tad too loud. A few of the guitar licks were slightly rushed, making it slightly less smooth as it could've been. But I dug the track immensely. Nice intimate vocals and great drum choices. Without love, how can we live?

Thanks Tobin
I really appreciate the critique. I was a little concerned about perc as well, but I wanted them to stand out cause I like what they add to the song. I'll check to see if there's a happy medium, maybe with EQ. I'm hardly ever thrilled with my guitar playin so usually if I get it close, I just call it good. I should probably get over that.

Great
track, this. You'll never know how much I tried to get to listen to this song in it's completeness, because of the way the site is running for us in the UK. 3 unsuccessful tries and a fifteen minute wait on the 4th, for the Q'time to build up... Sheesh! Yet..... it was worth it when I finally heard it LOL. I love the 'personal' sound on the vocals and the lovely smooth treatment, well constructed and performed. Harmonies too are spot on, cheers M

Dude...
you calling me a "kid" made my day! Just last night, my wife and kids commented on how my gray hair has increased lately (I'm 40). A kid at heart, anyway!

drum loops
are the greatest invention of all time. I have a love/hate relationship with drummers- I love to hate them ;). But with loops- best drummers, best mics, best engineers, it's like getting what I hear in my head out for the first time ever.

thank you faelin
this is my favorite too. It's not completely finished, I still need to do a final mix and there's a keyboard part my friend Steve Collins is going to do. The real trick is going to be leaving breathing room in it.

Best yet
It's been 20 years since I've heard you man. Listened to all your songs tonight. Like this one the best. Great lyrics as usual. Love the jazzy drum beat. Smooth sound like cool jazz. Percussion was great. Love the rap in the back. Way cool. Bass was solid as a rock. I get the Stills thing but heard hints Robert Cray and John Mayer too. Keep up the good work.

about 2007 I received the gift of a presonus firepod. That launched me back into a love of music that I hadn't realized I'd been missing. Since then I've been writing and learning the craft of recording and mixing. I am now in two acoustic groups-... [see more]
