Lyrics
He was a singular guy
If truth be told - a heart of gold
A friend to you and I

He gave so much more than he took
The evidence is all around
If you care to take a look

So sad he’s gone
But I know all he left behind
Will stand the test of time
Amber testament to shine
… on and on

He was - one of a kind
With a perspective unexpected
It opened many minds

He danced - to a different drum
Ignored the fools - broke many rules
A chancer to some

(Guitar break)

So sad he’s gone
But I know all he left behind
Will stand the test of time
Amber testament to shine
… on and on

Very nice testament
First- I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother in law. This song will no doubt help carry his legacy forward and maybe even aid in the family's healing.

I like the simplicity of this piece- the guitar and the vocal are well matched and really allow the emotion of the song to be clearly conveyed.

A simple, sweet and beautiful effort!

Peace~ AC

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
