Description
It’s called Song for Sons, but I guess it's really a song for parents of grown up sons. This one came together really quickly, and I decided to just record the energy of a straight live guitar and vocal run through with just a few overdubs. It might resonate with some of you out there. They grow up so fast!

Song for Sons

I remember
When your whole tiny hand
Held my finger
And I could shoulder
All those early mornings
Cos I loved you

I look at you now
And you’re a man
You could take my hand
In your hand

I read you stories
In the bath on the sofa
And in your bed

I read your favourites
About a bear in the woods
And he snored on

I look at you now
And you’re a man
You could take my hand
In your hand

Half my lifetime
All your lifetime
Half my lifetime ago
Half my lifetime
All your lifetime
I needed to let you know

I took you walking
We'd explore hills and fields
Roundabout

I made up stories
About a dwarf and a badger
In the woods

Look
at that handsome little guy. I really like the "captured moment" feel and sound of the song. I don't even know how I'd react had my dad written a song like this for me...if he were a musician.

Cute song.

Where does the flanging effect on the main vocal come from?

Man, I get this - my son is 14 and I often reflect on how just a few years ago I was watching him hold my finger or slobber on me. Now he's almost as tall as me and I love telling him about fingers and slobber.

Sweet song. Nice guitar and vocals. I enjoyed this and downloaded it.

Thanks again.

Nicely captured feelings. Good choice with the simplicity and immediacy of the performance, too. Upbeat and poignant at the same time. My son turns 30 next year so I can really appreciate the sentiments. Thanks, Mark.

A song for dads...
I was just thinking, just the other day, that it's past time I wrote something for my son...

This has a nice, unaffected presence and a really good heart to it...

Wow. Children songs or songs about children are not easy to write. This stands like an anthem that will be heartfelt for a long time. I can see everything you talk about. Greta job. Little tear
