Sometimes it's ok to be treading water. it just depends on the pond your in at the time!. Another one done live so a few timining issues but it got the feel of the song

Treading water

I feed my son and my father
Through a plastic cup
One life is beginning
One is almost up

I wish I’d known him for longer
I wish I’d known him before
All the stories he told us
All the things he saw

I might be treading water
But I’m happy in my pond

Sister works in a bar now
For far too many hours
The locals come to flirt with her
Time is running out

Mother travels the world now
She’s on an endless cruise
Don’t know what she’s avoiding
She’s gonna have to choose

I might be treading water
But I’m happy in my pond

Pretty darned good
for live... You have some complex interactions there. I can accept and actually like the timing difficulties. Very cool tune and you arrived at pretty good over all sound too!

You do write a good tune
Very nice one too. Again it all blends very well. It could develop with maybe a flute or female backing vocal, oh and a cool bass line (acoustic), but it is just great as it is.
