Lyrics
Hang on to my dream

A handful of sand
It's all just crumbled rock
Time slips through my hands
Can't turn back the clock

Boy have I wasted my time
Thought I had it on my side
Wish I had enjoyed the climb
Too late when you start to slide

You live
And you love
You laugh
And you cry
You pray
To god above
You live
You live

I've learnt to take my chances
Always tried to be fair
In friendships and romances
I just tried to take care

I will never give up
I will hang on to my dream
But I'm not gonna waste my time
By rowing upstream

You live
And you love
You laugh
And you cry
You pray
To god above
You live

thanks Julian
Well, these lyrics came very ease, I wrote them in one session , apart from any music. Doesn't happen so often :-)
More work on the final mix, this was the seventh mix...

I like this a lot. Almost has a Basement Tapes feel to it. Great lyrics, chord sequence and the guitar work was nice.

Very nice Van Morrison vibe (Crazy Love). Nice bridge with some interesting chord changes. Wonderful guitar solo. Some very nice expression and phrasing in your playing. You have a great ear for production and mixing!

being compared to the Man is not bad, lol.
I learned a lot about mixing due to the fact that I'm a lousy singer, just trying to make the best out of it, hehe

i know
i've said it before, but Mr Knopfler would have been proud of this, i reckon. Beautiful production, as always. Just sounds a pro job to me.

Really easy on the and listening is effortless and enjoyable.

Hold on to that dream, Cees!

Take care

Superb!
Cees/Bing, I really cannot add anything fresh to what's already been said about this (I think Andrew summed up my feelings here pretty close)! But here's one more big hand of applause for yet another winner from this team. Thanks again for the quality work you both do and for sharing it with us. I loved this! Michael

HANG ON TO MY DREAM
This flows so smoothly - love the groove - nice lyrics and some great guitar work. It ends a bit abruptly - I thought we were heading into a break, and - whoosh - we're done! I enjoyed listening though - you did a real nice job with this! Thanks -

SISTERS said 2213 days ago (March 2nd, 2011)
slick!
good job on that harmony, kc. the guitar is great - it's doing some swell soaring. i'd mix this with the vocal lower in volume, and a little more variation in the drum to make it even better. excellent chorus! you're sounding good, guys.

Well , I like the vocals to be on top of the music
The drums could use a bit more variation indeed. Sometimes i overlook that, too busy mixing other things... :-)
