This song is a lament about lost love. It is a collaboration with my son: he plays the keys and I'm on bass and vocals.

Lyrics
I only cry
When I think of you
But I think of you
All of the time

I try to laugh
When I'm feeling blue
But feeling blue is all
that I can do

Love is a flower
That blooms in spring
Showered by a gentle rain
Everything is fresh and green

Without some attention
it withers and fades
scorched by the summer sun
blowing on the winds of change

I am glad that you stopped by for a listen. This song underwent many permutations on the way to its current state. I am not completely happy with the finished project, but I needed to be done with it!!

Heidi, thanks for stopping by for a listen. Yes, working with my son was very rewarding. I have had a chance to work with my daughter on a previous song, and I would really like the three of us to get together for something in the future.

Bluesy style that I like a lot. Moody keyboard playing and emotive vocals. Solid bass. You work well together! Much enjoyed.

Nice and bluesy ... nice keys ... vocals have a lot of feel. Would love to hear a bit more punch on the bass and drums but it's all subjective isn't it.
You got a soulful voice ... enjoyed

Yes, I am still trying to master mixing things. In the end, I wasn't very happy with the drum track, so I put in back in the mix. I mostly mix using headphones, and I am always stunned by how different things sound through a set of speakers. I am a work in progress!

Emotional vocals. Backing track is the real deal. Pristine mix and recording. Very nice on many levels. Well done, dude.

Nice Job
This is a really nice song and recording. The chord progression and your strong vocals are highlights, but I like everything else too.

Thanks for listening. Yes, I wanted something bluesy and jazzy for these lyrics. My son added some extra mood-coloring to the chords when he played them.

Another good one
Yep, you don't know how to do a bad song. I love music that doesn't fit into one of the "genres". This had elements of jazz, blues, rock and was a ballad. Very powerful. Wish you would do more as I love your stuff.
