Lyrics
know your way home
don't want to be cold and lost on the wrong roads
so you really ought to know all the ways home

so you were surprised
it hit you low and hard from the side
so now you've got to go all the way home

hope's never gonna build anything
more real than dreams
because hope's nothing without means

when all the things you said you'd do
become all the things you wish you'd done
and all the time was spent building useless regret
tell me who's to blame

you treat it like some mystery
that the voice you heard's still not the face you see
that the plans you never laid turned out to be
the great things you would've done if only
you never had to go all the way home

hope's never gonna build anything
more real than dreams
because hope's nothing without means

Good song
You have a pretty solid arrangement here. Nice guitar work, good vocals. The driving drum part keeps it going at a good pace. Kudos.

thanks for popping by Feter. You're right about teles, I've been messing around with an old strat recently and came back to the tele for this tune - and it just felt soooo much better. I really shouldn't cheat on my tele, when will I learn?

hello dan.
your kind of singing is really fantastic. also how you manage the background-vocals...
ahhh... but the plain truth is: i have to make the same compliment on: how you play guitar + bass, how you arrange the drums....
and the song comes with surprising facility....
one of this tunes, where i realize::: i have a lot to learn..... sadly...
imo: a hit. so:: congratulations!

best from berlin

Dan,
Really great tune, man. You inspire the sh*t out of me. The blend of driving guitars, the lush harmonies that are treated with just the right amount of restraint. Your arrangements and progressions are so well thought out. Plus your drum tracks are great. Color me impressed. D/L and fav'd bigtime as usual.

it rocks
Nice rocking song. Drums are convincing, like the fills.
singing, guitar playing, songwriting all very good.
I actually thought the soloing was pretty tasteful, but I like guitar solos. I love telecasters too.
Great post!

Danny Boy!
Dude!
I have to double dip here. A first for me! First of all, I have come to really LOVE this song. I've been listening to it on my iPhone when I go running. Secondly, a came back to have another listen and saw this totally excellent VID! The D-Man in motion! Beltin out the steallar harmonies from his porch in Brisbane! Puts a whole new slant on things! Well done, I really dug it. You are setting new standards of delivery here at MJ my friend. Not only production values, but now video? How's a guy supposed to keep up with that?
Best,
Philip
