Artist's description:
Well....

Have you ever just felt so down that you wanted to find comfort in music but didn't have the will to actually work at it?

This is what this is.

I turned on the 4-track and put down improvised lyrics / vocal / guitar
then I improvised in one take each synthesized Rhodes and Casio Electronic saxophone. (in fact the only song I've used the Casio horn on so far)

I have a love / hate relationship with this song from 1993's Strange Beauty...

Only One Hope


I'm trying to tell you what I feel
I'm trying to tell you what my life is
from inside....

I'm trying to show you
what it is
I'm trying to show you
me.....


I only think there's one hope
I only think there's one chance
I only think there's one way
I only think there's just one time

I can not feel your feelings
I can not feel your thinking
I can not think about
what I don't know....

I do believe...
there's a chance, chance, chance

But there is only one hope
But there is only one chance
There is only one time
There is only one way

Don't throw shadow on the light
somehow things will work out all right

I don't know how...
I don't know how...

There is fear at the bottom of this precipice
There is fear at the bottom of this
There is fear at the bottom of this
There is fear at the bottom of it all
There is fear at the bottom of it all

This
is a very self-reflective introspective piece. It has a lot of feeling and emotion and it captures the essence of the lost feelings that we all experience at some point in our lives. Great work.

@ magnetone and @ Michael2
This was written in 1993. The problems are long since gone. I'm happy now but I wasn't happy then to be sure. She's long gone from my life and for the better.. for me at least.

I connect w/this 3 ways (polemic follows!):
Haha... everybody feels sorry for you now because of what you wrought in 1993! (Read the intro, people!!!) LOL. So: I connect with this tune in 3 ways. 1) The sound of it, including the vocal, without paying attention to the actual lyrics; 2) the lyrics, which are simple in a classic pop-folk-rock way and convey that emotional ambiguity/alienation; and 3) your GREAT comment about wanting to find comfort in music but didn't have the will to actually work at it."

HELL YES, brother Vai. To this day, I prefer to call myself a hack, it's a cover for the real effort I do put in, but know will never be enough.
