Lyrics
A glow fills up the room
Dulls the edge of night
Don't let the day have your attention
Let your cares take flight

The night was made for lovers
Who's hearts passed through
The flame of many faithless friends
And hearts called out to one another
To find a love
As light as breath
Gentle as the rain

In a hard place
In a hard place
There's a soft place in this cold hard world

I believe it's true
It's not good to be alone
We were made for one another
And it's there we find our home

We know it in our hearts
And prove it with the way we live our lives
What you pour into another isn't lost
It's taken and remembered
By the ones we leave behind

Beautiful Music
I really like the easy feel of this gentle little piece and especially the controlled accompaniment you give to your vocal. Such a well-crafted piece that never goes beyond what it is: a gentle number with heart-felt lyrics that is just beautifully delivered.

Thank you Paul
This one really wouldn't allow for my usual kitchen sink approach, it taught me quite a bit about arrangement.

Fine song, Paul. Really like the lyrics. Great hook in the chorus. Wonderful musicianship and your vocal and the harmonies are as engaging as ever. Gram adds so much. Kudos. Take care.

Gram used to be in a band called The Mulligan Brothers. I was very pleased when he sent me the tracks.
It's nice to hear from you!

Mando!
I LOVE the mandolin. Own one but can't play it worth a damn! :-(

It works well in this song. Warm, front-porch arrangement. beautiful lyrics nicely sung. Really enjoy the harmonies!

Top notch!

Be well!

In a Hard Place
Warm, evocative vocal(s). Fluent playing. The mandolin gives a "front porch" quality - very effective. Much enjoyed.

Gentle beauty
Your playing and singing are always good to my ears bro, and your lyrics here are sweet, but the mando is a joyful delight doing acrobatic flights of fancy around your warm backer.

about 2007 I received the gift of a presonus firepod. That launched me back into a love of music that I hadn't realized I'd been missing. Since then I've been writing and learning the craft of recording and mixing. I am now in two acoustic groups-... [see more]
