A true paean to the creeping numbness of the times….your poet’s soul shinning through. Great job RT - nice to hear you singing more….but I think you should have asked me to do the harmonies! (a la Tom Jones and Englebert Humperdinck ! lol)….

you know what that’s not half bad RT.

You got a Marillion ( back in the Fish days not the new bloke,) kind of thing going on in the delivery and the non rhyming lines.

Well you’re always telling everyone else to go out on a limb, so good for you, you did. You are definitely on to something here. While I used to get rather heady going into “coffee shops” (here that has a rather different meaning, if you are as old as I am) I now find them very alienating places. I go to a lot of trouble to make my own coffee both at home and when I am working, because if I’m going to feel alienated I’d rather do it for 1/4 the cost, and alone ;-).

This mix is very much an anthem, the lyrics are clever (the Virgin/sturgeon thing is a complete hoot-I can only imagine how long that took to come up with, I’m laughin’ with ya, not at ya, believe me) ,and the overall composition is quite striking. Well done RT.

Spectacular voice here. Ok on Fish, also Lake/Wetton/Crimson. I like the crescendo climax on the mix. Good, good job.

I like the idea ( I always find and found it great to write about themes that happen and that have sort of tragedy or special situation), the lyrics, your vocals and as well the music, not to forget the great build up.
It has a very personal attitude and mood.

Hey RT. Very good voice in here, your singing reminds me to David Bowie. I like the emotion in your voice, goes great with the melody.
A simple day history become a whole reflect important situation, you focus us all on that man.

Many thanks to everyone who has been touched by this song. I have said it before but the great thing about CCM is that it provides the ingredients on many levels to help a person produce work that otherwise would not have happened.

So a special thank you to Durden for the great arrangement which helped to put all of this together and pull out from inside me these words and thoughts.

(Bit of an Oscarish speech but you get what I mean!!:) )

I’ve played this about 3 times in a row so it’s safe to say I’m diggin’ this lovely! Sounds like you pulled out your Bowie-flavored candies and savored the taste! The title threw me off I must admit but, to quote FREE; ‘It’s alright now’!

well I am in love too. I like when you open your mouth and heart, tenor that you are. again I have to say completely compelling voice although it could hide behind less FX (I have no room to say this in my mucking of things up) but I will say it anyhow.
However, heartbreaking and beautiful.
