A Life In Progress

Description
This is a rehash of an old song, uploaded in 2005. I redid all the parts a year or so ago, but it just kind of sat on the backburner for quite a while until I finally got around to mixing it.

Not much else to it. Just a happy little pop song.

Lyrics
sunny days
rainy nights
see the stars and feel their light

take my hand
as we run
down the hill feel the sun

feel the wind
smell the earth
feel the grass beneath your feet

gentle breeze
blows your hair
spend the day and lose your cares

this is your life
take your time, seize the day
this is your time
use it as you like

laugh and smile
cry your tears
feel the pain of all your years

look around
see your world
take some time and make a change

this is your life
take your time, seize the day
this is your time
use it as you like

sunshine fades
go inside
watch the darness move on in

feel your warmth
at my side
and tomorrow starts again

these are our lives
take our time, seize the day
this is our time
we’ll use it as we like

A whole gorgeous pop song...
...in which there is not one note, main or background vocal, that I could possibly sing...

Wonderful pitch and clarity on all of the aforementioned vocals, and nice space and air and a sort of patience in the piano playing...

Cool song, too... If Jon Anderson was helping the Finn brothers work up a demo...

a good week for revisions
time sure makes a difference and pays off so well here. the bass holds this down so well. the piano came out great. I can't think of many people that can pull off harmony vocals like you can.

there is a touch of McCartney here as well. nice!

man
that second chord is a jaw dropper. mellotron is a nice touch, i keep thinking i need to drop one into something but it's such a "sound." you used it in just the right way. i like the song and lyrics, very uplifting.

Wonderful Harmonies Joe
And a great song to sing them on too. I really like the structure on this, and the way you've put the vox and harmonies together. Excellent production values my friend. It sound great.

Sounds like a
professionally written song. Wonderful vocal and harmonies. I am also picking up on the McCartney vibe too.
Cheers
