Lyrics
Turn out the light she said
Before you go to bed
Remember every thing I told you
There will be times you may doubt yourself but
Don’t let those thoughts surround you

And clouds go by in the night
Close your eyes and say goodbye
It’s all right now, you can cry
Just know I’ll miss you

Do you remember baby
Do you remember well
Do you remember baby
How it felt

Pitchin stones at the sun for a while
Some times it's hard just to find your way
When clouds go by I can see you smile
I can see your face

Do you remember baby
Do you remember well
Do you remember baby
And how it felt

Repeat

Thanks so much Feter
I really appreciate the love. Of all the songs I have done this is one of my favorites. I added credits when I posted the song but don't see them listed. The Backing Vocals is a good friend of mine Samantha Senior. The Mandolin was done by another good friend Dave Berry. Both add so much to the feel of the song for sure. The better your speakers the better it sounds of course :D...

I had Dave play the song through like 6 times without much coaching, just telling him what sounded great with each pass. Later I cut each take grabbing the parts that I thought worked best and moved them around giving them different pans left and right to get the effect I wanted.

Glad you liked it and hope more people get to hear this one.

Has a wide
open spaces feel to the music. It is so happy, down home cordial. It is a hug and a smile. Nice harmonies. Love the playing. Nice singing. Thanks.

Char thank you for the very kind words.
If this song comes off like a hug and a smile then I am sincerely happy about the outcome.

Thanks Demeter7
I'm hoping to do a little clean up and maybe take this one to a professional studio and see if they can make it radio ready. It would be a dream to see a song you wrote get on the air :D

Fabulous Arrangement
Wow, does this build! It's a great song! The guitars, the vocals, the mandolin! It's all so impressive. Congratulations on a great track!

Hey Alackbass I truly appreciate the comment.
I've never considered myself a musician but do strive to be a good song writer and I feel pretty good about this one. I was lucky to have two good friends help out. I really think the mandolin and backing vocals go a long way to make this song.

So glad you found the song and appreciate it.
Not sure what the Re-visted part means but guessing you had listened to it before. I have had 3 people post comments in the last 2 weeks and wondering how this song is getting more attention as of late. If anyone can tell me how they found this song I would be grateful in knowing. Thanks and glad it is being enjoyed as I put a lot of work into this one :D
