This song was initially an instrumental. The lyrics was later on inspired by several annonymous poems I read on the internet. Couldn't find any names to thank unfortunately.
Hope you like this new project of mine.

Lyrics - Adopted from various anonymous poems
Acoustic guitar picking - Quinn Bachand @Band_in_a_Box

No amends, I shouldn't have missed the chance
Inevitably brought me to this circumstance
It's a bad time for life to take a dive
I only want(ed) to live an honourable life

You cannot unsay a cruel word
Cannot always drink upstream from the herd
Every path has its puddled way
Don't you ever try to turn night into day

Some sit in sad remembrance of wasted days gone by
Curse their life for what it was
Hang their heads & cry

So let's feel the winds of change
Blowing into our face
We want to see what life unfolds as we move from phase to phase

Soon you'll find
Your life has jumped the track
Through the sand of time
There's no turning back


So dream what you want to dream and go where you want to go
Be what you wanna be
There's only one life
Scarce chances to do things right

You won't have the best of everything
Just make the most of everything that comes your way
And life is far too short for yesterdays

Nice soft vocals and interesting lyrics
“Anonymous poetry” is sometimes the very best.   This is a gentle arrangement with a nice, punchy instrumental break and very good use of key changes and harmonies.

Some Assembly Required
Assembling random bits of anonymous online poetry - one step ahead of AI lyrics!

You've put together a beautiful, dreamy song. Nice Work!

I stand by my earlier comment
Lay off the high frequencies. This is a sweet song but the mix ruins it.
