Lyrics
It started out one Sunday morning
All the people came and stared
He woke up and he was blessed with
A million faces standing there


The sun of fame beats through his window
The beam of stardom lights his eyes
But he would rather have his life as it was
40,000 crooked spys


And now he says that there's a long way to go
Can you reach me here so far
I'm going crazy, just to find that I'm amazed by who you are
And still we say that there's a long way to go
Can you reach me near and far
I'm going crazy, just to find that I'm amazed by who you are



He took a train outside of downtown
He pulled his coat over his face
And when he's blinded by the flashlight
Poor guy feels so out of place


He took a read of morning paper
He cast his eyes over the page
He can't believe what he is faced with
She's on the frontpage once again


And now he says that there's a long way to go
Can you reach me here so far
I'm going crazy, just to find that I'm amazed by who you are
And still we say that there's a long way to go
Can you reach me near and far
I'm going crazy, just to find that I'm amazed by who you are

Fabulous!
It seems like many MacJammers are intent on making us believe in time travel. This is just a blast from the past in terms of style, and is beautifully performed by all involved. As the electric guitar is my favourite instrument that amazing fluid guitar work caught my ear more than anything else, but only just. Thanks for posting this, and thanks also for that download!
Check out my latest song called Dreamer's Dance.

I love this!
Awesome stuff, I really like it - some of the writing reminds of The Mamas and The Papas. The overall sound has the beautiful warm analoginess that's oh so soft and velvety.

I keep thinking of this track as "A Long Way To Go", rather than "Amazed By Who You Are", just a thought.

Nice free-flowing rhythm. Easy vocal style. Variety in the arrangement. I like the little guitar solos. It's always good to listen to one of your projects, Freddy!
