Lyrics
It's not so easy now
every time I look at you
I see the changes
that draw us apart

If I could I would
ease the pain
but there is no power in me
and I don't know where to start

I see the changes that draw us apart

We'll never know
what the future holds in store for us
and we cannot hold on to the past

If I could I would
ease the strain
but there is too much fear in me
and I know it will not last

It's now you say
it's getting late
for looking to the new dawn
but deep inside this life, this fate
holds me with comfort drawn

Some days the sun shines in your eyes
sometimes your too tired to care
but there's a spark within you lies
and past and future days are what we share

Bridge

Is there ever a time
to let it go?
Is there ever a time
to sink so low?
Is there ever a time
to say I know?
Is there ever?

As I settle down
to think about you
I see the light
fading so fast
If I could I would
numb the pain
but this would be for me
as the light becomes overcast

Nice crisp guitar. Introspective but universal lyrics. Emotional vocal. The strings work well for this song. Drums and bass solid, supportive. Powerful work, Freddy!

Really like the brushes ... refreshing. The vocal track is nice keeping it fairly dry ... the acoustic guitar and piano compliment each other and the cello is ear candy ... nice one FreddyCheers

Some nice changes, especially like the bridge. Cello is a tasty flavor in the mix. Intimate vocal expresses the sentiment in the lyric well.

So many ways
of reading those lyrics and I like that. Positive in some senses.

Nicely put together, clear production and good to hear a real cello.

Cheers
