Lyrics
Hot and dusty, underground
Playing for a meal
Singing songs with lyrics
I have long since ceased to feel
Comfortable survival
Complacent to the core
Nailing down the artist
Who could only search for more
Cigarette, glass of beer
Overnight hotel
Nearest things to heaven
In this disillusioned hell

And you're crying inside
I can hear it
Something's crying inside
And I can feel it
'cause it's dying inside
Of me

You leave the best to dream of
Living with the rest
And praying that your dreams
Will never have to meet the test
And when you go to make a move
It's only to the door
'cause once you're in the street
You're fighting your own kind of war
Cigarette, glass of beer
Overnight hotel
And maybe some sweet dark-eyed girl
Who caught you as you fell

And you're crying inside
I can hear it
Something's crying inside
And I can feel it
'cause it's dying inside
Of me

It WAS written in the late 70's Feter, but not recorded until the 90's and then the beginning was clipped through various people trying to record it for me (as usual I was the only guy without a copy of my own album- LOL). So I dug it out of the scrap heap, stuck on a beginning that actually sounds more natural and added some strings and percussion. Just wish I could play keyboards properly to get what's in my head onto the damn TYPE KEYS on Garage Band. Oh, well.

I like the lyrics .....
... they remind me of a song from the 80's which in my old age for the life of me I cannot remember the name of .. or who sang it .... I thought it was Bob Seger ... but upon searching I believe it was not Bob Seger afterall .... but it was about the life of a musician on the road ... and how lonely it was .... and how he is in a different city every night a cold lonely hotel room .. blah blah .. anyhoo ... great tune .... I liked YOURS too !

Reminds me of
.. Marillion, circa "Clutching at Straws" particularly the track "Hotel Hobbies". Great instrumentation and wonderful lyrics.
You have a fabulously assured voice and have recorded it very well indeed. I like this a lot.
