Lyrics
It took a lifetime to know it`s a battle
"My life`s a mess"
It`s so hard to say
My only wish, to be a horse without a saddle
Is just a million miles away

"It took a whole lotta love"
It`s a riddle
My only friend is so hard to reach
And when we met
On the road, in the middle
The latest trick, we`ve tried to teach

The more I hate it
The more I loose a friend of mine
I can`t await it
The Sign

The only way is to climb up the ladder
Some of the rungs may be good or bad
To see the Sign
Makes your thoughts even better
You realize: Our lives are mad

Try to believe
Make up your mind
Read every word on the Sign

Guitar Solo

The more I hate it
The more I loose a friend of mine
I can`t await it
The Sign, the Sign

excellent
This has a flavor of Steely Dan. Those lush harmonies and that slick jazzy
guitar, the whole thing is warm and vibrant. It pulls me right in. Great
talent.

PUT YOUR NAME ON IT
I just downloaded this and found that none of the tags were filled out so
it comes up as an anonymous artist, nothing attributing the song to you.
I manually put the info in myself but I suspect that most people won't do
that and it will get lost in a long playlist and possibly get passed on to
other people who can never know who made the music.

I give this same basic speech whenever I find that someone has neglected
to fill out their tags.

cool wes montgomery feel in the beginning
Very nice, like the guitar work afterword. Nice singin as well. Like your
James Taylor type tonality you get out of your voice. The harmonies are so
lush as well.

Great going! Cool percussion feel. This tune is can put a person in a nice
mood grooving to the sounds.

Very good... jazzy
Very good mix and overall "groove". Definately has a jazzy feel to it. Very relaxing to listen to and I like the lyrics. Well done, my respect is earned.

Another great post Ingo
Another great post Ingo! Love the bass, love the Steely Dan guitar -
you're sounding more and more like James Taylor vocally. Great
harmonies, fantastic song. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes, brilliant
production. Like Peter said, make sure you put your name on your
work though. Neil

Not my type of music
But sometimes I am surprised by things I hear and are open to new music
I never thought I initially would like. This is one of thus moments, with
this clearly very good and inspiring song. The lyrics are very good as is
the vocals, wow. Everything is well performed and the mix sits very tight
in my speakers and headphones. Very good work.

Well done
Excellent presentation.

Has the feel of waiting, subtle edge or unease.

nice and smooth [insert name here]
This is great smooth music, nice melody, excellent singing/harmony,
nice mixing (*very slightly* muddy, needs a tiny bit of sparkle-boost &
bass boost I think?) And because this so good, I'll reiterate Peter's
comment... with great music that you are posting for the world to find,
make sure to add those mp3 tags in the file (AND insert your music
artwork in there too!) so that when this great music wanders to other
people's iTunes, they can see who wrote it & find your URL in there!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Totally Professional
This could be on any easy listening station anywhere. Great laid back
smooth feel with nice production.

[Insert Stuff Here]
Myself, i would like to know a little more about how you recorded the
song. You listed a little bit of your hardware.. but what about musical
instruments... musicians... did you do all of this yourself... i gotta know!

Again, nice piece.

Hello I.G.M.
Great sound. Like Wes Montegomery and James Taylor all rolled into
one!....Boy, if you can keep up the consistency in quality I see no reason
not to do a CD and go on iTunes....you do it through CD Baby, ya Know.
BRAVO! Peace, digitalnirvana9

fairy beth said 4995 days ago (October 21st, 2005)
so...
...easy on the ears! All the elements are so smooth. The guitar is
fantastic - yet another person on macjams who makes me wish i was a
much better guitarist. The harmonies are so spot on. Piano
accompanies nicely too. Congrats on a good 'un!

Excellent.
It's really got that Steely Dan sound in the rhythm section and guitars,
with echoes of The Section. Lead vocals have that JT tonality, and the
harmonies are resonant of Crosby Nash at times, too...

The songwriting itself, the lyrics especially, are your own all the way.

Your songs and productions are just flat out excellent...

And Peter's right. Put your name on it.

Very Smoothe
Kinda "Steely Dan" gets James Taylor to sing lead vox - beautiful
performance and production.

aralim said 4994 days ago (October 22nd, 2005)
really nice song!
You've got a great singing voice, and your work on the chorus to put in
the harmonies was spot on. Great job on the guitars, too!

My only quibble (and it's a minor one) is that there are a few points
where the vocals got a little "mushy" and I couldn't quite make out
what was being said. Other than that, this was very well done!
stevel said 4994 days ago (October 22nd, 2005)
This is great
Great track...very polished indeed! This reminds me of the first Steely
Dan album 'Can't buy a thrill' (my fave one)... the guitar work and
vocals are excellent. Well done!

broadside said 4994 days ago (October 22nd, 2005)
although
this is a bit out of my field of "expertise" i rate the production values,
the harmonies and also i thought the lead guitar if thats what you call
it, was very chill and nicely done.
the onlly detraction, was somehow the chorus about the sign could be
made to be more memorable, bbrought out a it by bringing in a
different instrument or something to make it stand out

Good flowing song. It fits in all ways. Excellent to hear the keys having a go too. Great solo guitar to complement the feel of the song.

It's not my type of music, but what you've done is excellent under all
aspects. My deep admiration...

Balancing act...
Not only physically, but musically as well. Very nice "venture" into the
"Other". Maybe "New Age" or even "Rock" as a genre for this? James
Taylor stylish, yet unique in it's own sense. Great production and
performances... musically and vocally.
FEEL said 4991 days ago (October 25th, 2005)
Very clean and refreshing
thanks for sharing this. It's easy on the ears and nice to take in.

Two of my favorites, and you keep sharing tunes that are just as good.
Not only good in writing, but as professionally done as anything
anywhere. You are really good. Thank you for sharing your music for
free, we are very lucky!

Ya Baby!
Hmm... Great vocals and harmonies, Smooth guitar and keys, Just the
right bassline and slinky drums.
I'm not even worthy to comment on your stuff... lol.
Very impressive.
Cheers... Marcel.

Steely Dan man...
This is one of the best... maybe the best song I have listened to on
MJ in the two years I have been here. Perfect, cool. The level of
your performance, the artistic arrangement, the production, and the
absolutely out of sight guitar and vocals. It is really a pleasure to
listen to this song.
Yeah, Fagen and Becker... make a little room for this guy up there on
the stage. He deserves it.

So very, very cool.

Man this is just so good
Love the whole song, the feel of it, the harmonies, the lyrics. Man this is great, Th sound you've got on the guitar is just perfect as is the playing.

Kind of reminds me a little of something "The Atlanta Rhythm Section" would have done. Stellar bit of song crafting here for sure.
