Description
This is a song I started and had a heck of a time with the singing and melody. So I posted this song and asked for help. Well out of the blue a local guy said he wanted to have a shot at the song. A few days later I get this version. So come out and take a bow David Howie. Now David used to play for a band called The Rain People. They had a hit with plenty of air time on Mtv. I think David said he had about 19 CDs released. Well anyway, He can be heard at http://www.davidhowiemusic.com
He also plays 9-10 shows a month. Its all right there at the website. Check him out!!

Oh no,
I left a comment. But, I must have screwed up. I think I said something like, "You were lucky to have David find you."
It is such a sexy, and deeply felt piece of music. The lyrics are perfect. You two make a good team. Thanks.
