Lyrics
oh the morning comes
but the sun ain't shining
looking through the windows
just darkened skies
what a blur the world has seemed
since the day you left for your dream
and put this town behind

oh I'll be on my way
when you come back home
oh i'll be on my way
you've been feeling alone
it was a crime to runaway
yah its been burning through your veins
you wondered how long it would take
to come back home

your journey across the sea
cut short by the breeze
you said the wind don't even blow the same
you wondered how it could be
how nothing could set you free
not even the bars could calm your sleep

oh I'll be on my way
when you come back home
oh i'll be on my way
you've been feeling alone
it was a crime to runaway
yah its been burning through your veins
you wondered how long it would take
to come back home

you thought the telephone lines
could hold your heart from breaking
but hearing just a voice
was only just a weakening sound
and everything I said girl
just couldn't keep your head
from staring straight at the ground

oh I'll be on my way
when you come back home
oh i'll be on my way
you've been feeling alone
it was a crime to runaway
yah its been burning through your veins
you wondered how long it would take
to come back home

maybe we could stop the rain
and all your tears and strain
this heart you thought you changed
is still just the same
still just the same
and I'll still be on my way

oh I'll be on my way
when you come back home
oh i'll be on my way
you've been feeling alone
it was a crime to runaway
yah its been burning through your veins
you wondered how long it would take
to come back home

On My Way
Yes, I enjoyed it very much. I love the simple piano/guitar/vocal arrangement. The tune is beautiful. I wish the vocal was a tad louder. But that's a very small nit pick. Excellent 1st post Matthew and welcome to MacJams.

and i did enjoy it
i like your voice man, it's got a great earthy quality, and it sounds very natural, not stylized at all, a real pleasure to listen to. there's nothing new in this tune, it's all traditionally arranged but it sounds fresh and interesting because it's just so absolutely well done. thanks for the listen. wish i could download it :)

great intro piece
This is heartfelt, nice arrangement and writing. Your singing voice is excellent and smooth, although I'd like a little more articulation and a teeny bit less breathiness. Great guitar work and perfect piano additions. Lovely work, welcome to Macjams!
ttfn,
Drakonis

thanks
Thanks for all the positive notes friend! Your true about the articulation. I'll try cutting down a little on the vox reverb too which should also help clear things up a tad. Thanks for the greeting, Macjams is a great find..

Solid, intimate
Really solid writing, classic feel. Your vocal style is nicely intimate with loose diction and subtle independent loneliness. Be careful not to add too much reverb or it makes diction muddier. Your vocals sit well for much of the song, but a few louder moments wash over your lyrics and they're lost. Very nice arrangement. Thanks for posting this.

Check out the lyrics to Richie Havens' "Paradise". It might spark an idea of how to handle certain emotions and philosophical thoughts in a different way...

another great song
Your song writing skills are wonderful. Total folk style here, from the thoughtful lyrics to the simple accompaniment and unadorned vocal style. Your voice is perfect for this type of song. Can't wait to hear that album!
