TRUTH BE KNOWN…Music and Lyrics
Franciscus Henri ( Albert Music)

Think of all the love song s written
I thought they’d change the world
But they didn’t
Think of all the love songs sung
Think of all the love left undone
Truth be known.

I think of all the songs I’ve written
I thought I’d change the world
But I didn’t
I think of all the songs I’ve sung
Think of the things left undone
Truth be known

In an empire built on greed
Someone’s singing “ love is all you need”
Write a song about how much you care
Hope it makes you a millionaire

Truth be known
I’m tired of singing

Love the theme of this song. The voices and guitars were excellent, and there's something sublime about a harmonica distanced with a reverb, how it seems to validate a song's message. I enjoyed this a great deal. No download? Rats!

you're right. what matters is action. all else, merely (if it can), encourages action.

thanks

Sweet melody. Love the chorus with its gentle Neil Young lilt. Tastefully played and arranged.
This sounds "real studio" enough for me. Lovely track!

I like this a lot, Franc. The effortless lyrics have maximum impact and the repeated title motif and harmonica really give the song a signature moment. Quality work, too, Philip. The Strat is sounding nice. Congrats. Regards, Peter.

Truth is this is...
A treat Franciscus, a real treat. Brilliant feel, lyrics, mix, vocals, and of course the guitar work by Philip is icing on the cake. The harmonica harkens to Neil Young (who has written in this kind of vibe too) and for me is perfect as a way to set the mood.

Kudos guys.

Doug

Love the folk song - and this song. Feels like we are hitting our heads against the wall sometimes. But, like you say, keep singing. Nice mix.
