Lyrics
FEEL THE LOVE AROUND

1
I can hear the drums
rhythm in the wind
beating through the night
then fade away...

Listen to that sound
what's that rising in the air
singing of pain and fear in our hearts

2
We can smell the burning fire
We can feel the shaking ground
The price of glory and love
won by the loss of many lives

Refrain:
And I can feel the love around me yeah yeah
Gaze into the sky
teardrops falling from our eyes
birds crashing down
yeah yeah yeah
So can you feel the love around
Can you feel the love around
Can you see the sunrise of tomorrow
Can you breathe the air of life

3
Can you hear the bombs
exploding in the night
halfway 'round the world
away from home
Gunshots through the dark
breaks silence of indifference
sending a knife into our hearts

4
We can taste the blood and tears
of tens of thousand dying souls
Should peace be won at such a price
We wonder there must be a better way

Refrain:
And I can feel the love around me yeah
look into our hearts
teardrops falling from our eyes
birds crashing down
yeah yeah yeah

So can you feel the love around you
Can you feel the love around
Can you see the bright colors of the future
and breathe the warm air of life

So can you feel the love around
Can you feel the love around
Can you see the sunrise of tomorrow
Can you breathe the air of life

Great voice and nice feel
You have a fine voice Leon, and I like the way you've done this song.
Nice guitar work and great latin feel - excellent! Not sure I like the
sound effects, although they are clearly a part of the story you're
telling, but this is just a personal feeling. Saw that you've only recently
started writing songs - very impressive.
Thanks for posting.

Great voice and nice feel
On third listen, I can't hear the bass - is there a bass line, or just the bass
drum? Would really round the song out nicely - nonetheless, a great post!

Great voice and nice feel
Thanks, man. I added the war sounds cause I felt it sounded rather void of
drama... I'll try removing the gunfire and see what it sounds like. :-) As for the
bass, I probably can augment that a little bit. Thanks for the inspiring comment
and constructive tips.

I like the feel of this
This is sorrowful, uplifting, and almost energetic at the same time. Great
voice and lyrics. I don't really have anything else to say.

Ben ,thanks a lot for the inspiring feedback. That made my day and made it
worth all the time I spent making this song a little more polished. And
comments like that coming from a great musician like yourself, that's
priceless.

great vocals!
Thanks, Jes (short for Jesushairdo?) :-) I've taken notice of the tuning of the
guitar myself. I even had a software to tune it, but it must be the guitar
getting a little warped over the past winter or something. You have a very
sharp ear for this little nuances, and that speaks of your musical talent, dude.
I'll try to have this looked into at the guitar center and see what they can do
about..or maybe it's just me. Ha-ha! Anyway, thanks for your generous
comments about my vocals. It must be all that computer trick I've done with
it.

Very impressive
Your voice is great , guitar is tasty .You are some man for one man as we say here in Cork.
Keyboards to me are a little bland , but then I am a pain in the arts when it comes to keyboards.
I am well impressed with your stuff , and I am going to listen to more of your stuff .

Well done , just stay away from Hello magazine if you are famous in time to come .

Thanks, Cormac!
Cormac, that was some honor you heaped upon me and I feel so undeserving of
such praise from one of your caliber. I'll promise to stay away from becoming
the headliner for Hello, but then you might be there first. Ha-ha! Or maybe I'll
see you soon on the cover of Mozart Weekly, eh?

Very strong
You have a wonderful voice, and this song is a great showcase for it. Nice
harmonies, and nice use of them. I'd sure like to have you in my choir...

The sparse instrumentation is tasty. I would have brought some low mid-
range keyboard sounds in to fill the spectrum and add drama during the
body of the song, but the song works very well as it is.

Man, you can sing...

What is it good for??!!
Firstly, great title - makes a real statement. And the great thing is, the song lives up to the title.

Trying not to repeat other comments, but you have a fantastic voice, really emotional, and good use of harmonies. Moreover, there is real character to the voice, it's not just a 'good' singing voice.

I do think you should add some bass, and maybe a string part, to support the sweepiing, weeping feel of this. This is great as it is, but you can make it a complete killer.
