Home demo



 Genre: Acoustic

Get Flash to see this player.

“Smiling” was about a place I lived in for the first 24 years of my life. This one’s about the area I lived around for the next 28 years namely the Vale of Belvoir in S. Notts./N. Leics. Just wanted to get a live demo down for posterity.

As time goes by
The ties are getting slack
I’m finding fewer reasons
For me to go back

I guess my life
Is slowly moving on
I’m on another verse
Of life’s great song

This place, oh this place
I will always love this place
But time and distance
Decrease my instance
On calling you home

Sometimes I forget
We were ever together
And the five
That I’ve been through

The wounds are healing
But the scars still remain
The ones I got
From you

This place, oh this place
I will always love this place
But time and distance
Decrease my instance
On calling you home

Making a life
In another place
Finding myself
In another space

When I come back here
On my own
I’m thinking of her
Back “home”

A really airy feeling to this song. Plenty of room. I could just imagine a nice little harmony in the chorus. Well done. I'm a fan.

Another back porch memory. Nice performance. The songs works well. Home is where the heart is :-) Sounds like a nice guitar, too. Thanks, Mark.

Good bones
This demo shows the great potential of how the song will evolve. I hope you get a chance to take this to where you want this song to go. Clearly a lot of emotion behind this one. Good noodling on the guitar too.
