Description
Sometimes you know someone that knows you so well it's more than Trust, it's Faith in them.

It's been seven years since my boyhood friend unexpectedly died a half world away. There are many days still I wish that we could talk things through.

Lyrics
Glass got no water
Lock got no key
Morning's got no sun
That I can see
Don't know what it is come over me
Wish I could talk with You.

The lark calls cross the meadow
Unseen but True

I'll let my heart speak
The words won't do
Wish I could walk
One more time with you
Yeah with You

Matchbooks empty
There ain't no Fire
Cold in the Wind
And it's full of Desire
And I'm wondering
What could be True
Wish I could talk with You

Yeah the lark calls cross the meadow
Unseen but True

I'll let my Heart speak
The Words won't do
Wish I could walk with
One more time
Walk with You
Yeah, Talk with You

Best Friend Blues.

For You, My Brother
Thank You, Kenta. I regret your loss, as well.

Accepting the fact is easier than the longings that remain unanswered.

My Very Best Regards to You,
Cooper

Zimmerman
This reminds me very much of Bob Dylan. The composition, the phrasing, the lyrics...

And it sounds like the rolling stones is playing it here:)

This being said.. you've made a h... of a good tune!

Zimmerman Unconscious
Hello, my Friend.

As you can tell, this is a sketch, a pass at trying to get a thought down quickly.

Major influences unconsciously color the style of my songs that are a stream, more than the pieces worked on for a longer time. Though, admitedly, Brian Jones really showed me how a guitar could be played! He was the first one to Jump Out for me.

Very Best Regards to You,
Cooper

Sounds like it feels
I can relate to your song, as my childhood best friend took his own life at the bottom of a long spiral. Instead of drifting apart, what if I could have helped him?

Nice work, Coop!

You probably did all he'd let you do.
When's when is the problem.

I appreciate
Both of the above comments; seems they apply to me too; Coop you are a healer. The song is great; I started harmonizing ala Rolling Stonesish. But mostly felt the pain and the sentiment; kept me fixed reading the lyrics. Nicely done.

Memorial
This song bridges the gap between friends lost and those who remain. A fitting memorial for your friend.

Great sentiment and feel to the playing, lyrics and melody.

Good job.

Say, Brother
It's a Big Gap when it comes around.
Such Desire in the face of Accepted Fact is confounding.

I Appreciate You Comments, greatly.

With My Very Best,
Cooper

BRIEF APPARITIONS
Production gets sacrificed to whichever gods let you in to the space of the recognized yearning. But, perfection was not a consideration.

Thank You for your thoughtful and generous Comments.

My Very Best Regards,
Cooper

Had to Do with what I had, going through the moment; simple instinct.

Thank You, Brother. Your work is new to me, but I'm getting there.

Sleazy blues
Hey RC... this has a Dylanish feel, as has been said, but it also kinda reminds me of the Velvets/Jesus and Mary Chain musically. Really great sleazy feel to this ... though it ends kinda suddenly.

A rock n roll tribute.

SAY, MAN,
ETIENE,

I may be cursed with that Dylan iambic and this was straight instinct of the moment. It's true that the Underground hit me big at that early age and has never left, though most can't identify it.

I hope it held together for you; the end is a mid-sentence break and probably not fair to a listener.

Heard a Rocker from you today with a Total Walk Away Vocal. Been some week around here.

Very Best,
Coop

the guitar sounds you are getting are so far advanced from when you started....very nice indeed!

Walk Don't Run
cool song from the first flourish of guitar. darn good set of lyrics - they're strong right from the get-go. "unseen but True" - nice.
kudos, koop!

Very nice...
A rich, full bodied sound, with real fine lead and wonderful chord transitions. The singing is so nice too. I really enjoyed this.

You always...
...always deliver my friend. We have most if not all of us lost someone close and trusted. You convey well the sense of loss...

Musically this piece is superb. Dylanesque yes, but solid Coop nonetheless. Bravo!

Be well!

This song really touched me
I've lost more than a few friends in the last couple of years - all too soon. You're open honesty and heartfelt performance is a real gift. Thanks. The chord changes are really effective through the chorus - very beautiful.
