This Gravel Road

Hi, this is an attempt at a country / Pop song - Written by me and my musical partner (Anne). Typical country theme - Everything has turned to crap and it's not my fault. No dog though. We plan to put a harp solo in the middle, which is currently blank. Anne's vocal I think is wonderful. Would be interested in some feedback.

Dreams – can fill my days
They’ll come and play
And then, take me down a ways.
Truth, so sweet and nice
But then it lies, again
And pokes you in the eye.
All my life I hear things in the night
I don’t know now, I just sit and wonder how, we ever tried.

You, you play my mind
I’m left to die
And then you bring me back to life
Time can bring the end
And be your friend
And yet I spent this life condemned.
All my life I have been so refined
but I’m not so bold, yes I’m scared of getting old, before my time

Chorus: -
All the things I believe in, aren’t true
Not things I really need
Words are sharp and I’m bleeding
And you sound like Socrates

Solo: -

All my life I confused wrong and right
Well I’m learning now and it’s late, the lights are out, I’m shutting down

Chorus: -

Wait until you leave
And then At last I'll see
The flower was a weed
Walk this gravel road
And take my soul, to where
No one else will know
Might see you round, well I’ll keep looking down
Well I might be wrong; I don’t care it’s been too long, to look back now.

Lots to like for sure. Rolling country vibe. The arrangement develops well. Anne does a fine job on vocals, especially with the harmonies. Quality musicianship. Mix clarity and space is excellent. A harp solo should fill it out nicely. It should have had a dog, though :-) Fine post. Thanks.

Congratulations you two. This is a great little song. If you can't get a harp, a mandolin or pedal steel guitar would slot in just fine. Very enjoyable.
