Description
This is a song that I wrote in 1975, probably recorded on old tapedeck in the 80'es, and then re-recorded last year when I discovered GB. It was just so much inspired by what I was listening to in the early seventies, and i still like that kind of song whenever I run into one. It's superficial rather than deep, but that was the way we did things then.

Lyrics

You came into town with a dream but half conceived
Just that bit too ready for something to believe
You let the young girl inside you take control
Found yourself abandoned with a heart that had turned cold

You found a lover, perfect mind and touch and smile
Who picked you up and turned you round where you were once so wild
You blossomed in the spring and shined on summer days
And when he left you felt the seasons turning to decay

But you are a woman
A woman through and through
You know when you've been taken for a ride
You're not some little girl
Who thrives on being blue
I'm sure you know to take the living in your stride

You learned your lesson and applied it like you should
You know now all that's gentle it isn't always good
The good is often found when dreams have all turned blue
And dreams are all that's left to you when your life comes true

When your life comes true
Nice tune. I like the chord changes and nylon accompaniment. Good story telling in the lyrics.

When your life comes true
Good song. Nice easy melody line. Smooth backing. Perhaps the vocal could be a bit further forward and a little less tentative? I enjoyed listening!

Very gentle
vocal unlike what I do which is often too prominent. Because of the softness, the listener has to focus which isn't a bad thing. I love the melody and your guitar. I can relate to this tale. How many live their dreams? Maybe, we don't get what we want but what we or the world needs. Thank you.

Ah, the Seventies
This has the feeling of "Puff, the Magic Dragon." I like the gentle quality of this number and the unencumbered accompaniment. The vocal is pleasant, too, but it is almost inaudible in this mix. Need to bring it up in volume and placement.
