Description
After several months away from playing guitar I did wonder if I could write another song. I did become a bit uninspired with my music but thought I'll give it another go......

Lyrics
Standing at the station trying to cut those chains
Someone’s trying to tell me it’ll never be the same
I thought you had no reason to tell me all those lies
Many nights you told me and many times you cried

It’s time to face the truth, tell me what you mean
Many times you went away and kept me from that scene
It’s seems you lived a double life and never let me know
But now I think it’s easy for me to let you go

There’ll be no sorrow

A different approach - a tone poem of sorts. Refreshing. Excellent guitar work, tone/style is excellent (Gary Moore-ish to me). I really enjoyed this listen!

I know that uninspired feeling. The cascading chords and spoken lyrics reminds me of Robbie Robertson's "Somewhere Down the Lazy River." Great soloing. Tasteful as ever and great tone. Great mix!

Hey, Bob. Glad you are feeling inspired again. Loving the guitar work and the tones you've chosen. Such an atmospheric post. Agree with Chris re the Gary Moore nod. Enjoyed it a lot. Thanks, Peter.

Lovely work Bob
An interesting take on the ballad and excellent guitar work

Like you I've been away from music for a while too but I'm not sure my return will up to this.

Cheers

It's nice to have that affirmation that the talent doesn't leave you, as well as the wisdom to only write when you feel like it rather than "mechanically". Definitely worthwhile. I second Chris' comments on the Gary Moore guitar tone.

It's so fascinating...
...to hear work like this that puts you in the person's mind and with music that creates the mood that accompanies it. Having the spoken verse and then that sung repeating phrase punctuating this really brings it home, the pain and anguish I felt listening. A very quiet kind of song that impacts you strongly. Great hearing you at work again Bob and hope this opens the creative inkwell once again--thanks! Michael

Pardon me while I pick-up my jaw from the floor ...
Yeah, definitely “a tone poem” treatment.   A very solid guitar-pad opening, followed by a startling(!) soliloquy ... but the song really breaks-loose with the absolutely-solid “power guitar” passages which follow ... and the repetition of that very last line.

An outstanding musical statement.

soulful
Spoken words working very well with your soulful guitar. Yup, definitely some Gary Moore vibe here, whom I admire. Enjoyed much.

Great words
The words and the emotion you put into saying them really got to me. Guess I have been someplace similar. The wailing guitar just puts the exclamation point on it all!

Your approach to the opening verse sets the mood and the languid guitar suits that. It also allows for development of the song as you progress through it. It works well, Bob! The entry of the electric lead is very powerful - as Chris says, Gary Moore-like (I'm thinking "Still Got The Blues"). Impressive work!
