Been a Long Time

The title says it all as I haven't been inspired lyric-wise for what seems ages, but at last I managed to 'squeeze one out' so to speak. I put it under 'Pop', but I suppose it could be 'light rock' also. One reason I had been disheartened about singing also, was my voice deteriorating as well, but I'm inclined to think its more to do with my breathing than the voice, as I can't seem to 'push it out' anymore; this was a very good day for me, so I went ahead with recording. Just wish I'd come up with some better lyrics though........hope you like what I did here, regards to all, M

1. Its been a long time since I left my old home town,
I’ve travelled far and learned some on the way,
Not much changed as I look back to how it used to be,
The Friends I left behind are still there today.

Through all the world and places I have travelled,
People made me welcome with a smile,
And Yet the pull of home was ever with me,
Beating all other places by a mile.

2. Its the place that kept my heart forever yearning,
The place that fed my senses long ago,
Its to those friends still there; I’ll be returning,
And with friends like them, they’ll welcome me I know.

Rpt. Chorus.
Instrumental verse.

3. When you have friends who keep your heart a-yearning,
For the place that fed your senses long ago,
Those Friends will help you keep the memories burning,
For the place that honed and shaped and helped you grow.

Chorus and fade.

Still got it Maurice
Another smoothie - it sounds like you managed to get all the plugs in the right places. To me, your voice sounds fine, and your writing still seems tight and meaningful.
All good (and a tad inspirational!).
Cheers from Oz,

Good to hear from you Mo.
You've still got that warm rich tone, just a little mellowed,
As for ' squeezing one out' and ' push it out', are you sure it's not the other end thats troubling you old bean ?

Ha ha Ha,
No Dave I'm all good at that end LOL; it's the bellows at the top end that are weaker these days, hence the 'mellow' effect. You could say, 'its the bellows that keep it mellow.'. Nice to see you here anyway, so thanks a lot for listening and for the compliment, regards M
