Description
Hi Everyone,
Here's a song I wrote that's been out there for awhile now and just recently re-visited it and worked on having it mastered. As always I welcome your comments and suggestions. It's a song about growing up alone with a few wrong turns along the way.

Lyrics
Standing there in your puddle of tears
No one to turn to nobody hears
Rain comes down caresses your face
Standing in the ocean this is your space

Well now you sit in an empty room
The windows open as the wind whispers through
Take a look around you
But don't look back
Cause parts of your life you can't re-enact

Through the mist
And through the haze
Thoughts of bygone days
But hour after hour
And day after day
Time it it slips away

Through the mist
And through the haze
Thoughts of bygone days
But hour after hour
And day after day
Time it slips away

Through the mist
And through the haze
Thoughts of bygone days

Very good song. Great vocal. I love how your voice opens up at around 3:39. You have an exceptional vocal range. I love the twelve string. Cool percussion track (kick and tambourine alone..cool). I love that fat bass tone. So classic P-Bass. Great mix and production.

My one minor complaint would be the intro seems long. I'd prefer you get to the vocal sooner. But that's a small thing and just my opinion (I've been known to be wrong about such things).

Hey Jody!
What's up dude? How was Arizona? Glad to see you back and with a stellar song and production, I agree with Andrew on that bass, sounds great, in fact the production sounds huge, actually I'm blown away by this, who's playing what here? Drums sound awesome, guitars too, great work my friend!

AZ was nice. Wish I could have stayed a bit longer. But I decided to come home and shovel snow. A buddy of mine played bass. He did very well with that. Me on guitar and vox. Production was a collab with the drummer. Sorry, I can't tell you who it was. I promised him I would never tell. I think he's embarrassed by it!

Good Song
I agree with alackbass, your vocals sound great when you open up about half way through the song. You've created a great vibe here...kind of an updated 1970's Gordon Lightfoot feel, but then the song picks up and starts rockin'!

Production-wise, it sounds great coming through my KRKs, so I'd say "well done" on the mastering end. Thanks for posting.

I like this a lot
The P-bas, e-bow and your vocals are the standouts for me, but really everything is really well played. I like the restrained but crystal clear production too. Great song.
I can't hear anything that the drummer should feel embarrassed about. Only suggestion here is to maybe add some harmony in the chorus.
Very good post!

Delivers all that one could ask
Hi Jody, like the way this one builds. And I really dig your vocals. This is a big production number that delivers all that one could ask. I also like the lines "Through the mist, through the haze, thoughts of bygone days" - very evocative. Thanks for the D/L. Regards, Peter.

Wonderful
I really like the fade-in. The very beginning reminds me a bit of "Thank You" by Zeppelin. Great vocals & lyrics too, just awesome!

I liked this
right off from the start as it swept in with a great big pan. I kept anticipating though, a mandolin to come in at any moment. Even without it is still an enjoyable song and well produced.

You have a good sense for arrangements with you work.

Thanks for the sharing of your work..........

nice build. love the guitars especially. big rich sound. nice riff leading to the vocal entry. like the tambourine. i would have wanted more variation to justify the length...but apart from that i really liked it.

You
are lucky to have found your bliss and it is definitely your playing and singing. I like the additions you make but at the heart of your work is the richness of your guitar and the warmth of your voice. Can't do better than that.
