Lyrics

Stranger things have happened in the course of my retreat
Images I once held high lie scattered at my feet
If someone told me long ago I’d find myself here now
I wouldn’t have believed them then - I didn’t want to know

When I was a younger man my truth I could create
Telling lies between the lines but catching them too late
I wanted you to love me for the things that I had done
How was I to know it doesn’t matter in the end

But Oh Lord
How I can be deceived
Into thinking that reflections
Are something to believe

If I could do it all again I’d like to believe
That I’d take a different course and do things differently
Vanity has led me to concluding on my fate
That somehow from this distance I can see things perfectly

But Oh Lord
How I can be deceived
Into thinking that reflections
Are something to believe

Takes me back!
This feels strangely familiar. Good tunage. Nice mix. I wish you would
have posted the lyrics. I could only make out about half of them. Perhaps
you could re-mix with the vox a tad more to the fore? All in all a fine
piece of work.

Be well!

Takes me back!
Thanks for your kind words - I took your advice and posted the lyrics. When
you figure out what it reminds you of let me know - I'm always interested in
plumbing the subconcious. I enjoyed checking out your work - welcome back to
MJ.

Takes me back!
Specifically? It reminds me of the tenor of my entire life up to this point!
Musically it evokes the period of my youth when my individuation began to kick
into high gear: late 60's/early 70's.

Thanks for checking out my work. Did you give THE CAVE a listen? If so, what
did you think?

Be well!

Enjoyable as always but not one of your better ones. But of course it's all subjective anyways.
