Lyrics
Big Man, People Just Loved
You So Much, Then
You Made Them Laugh
So Dry, Ben

You Were, The One
I Looked To For Direction
You Were There
Giving Affection

You Never Knew
You Never Guessed
How Much They Loved You
Big Man

You Never Knew
You Never Guessed
How Much They Loved You
Big Man

Hey Look Over There
See How It's Oh So Bare
Hey Look Over There
See How It's Oh So Bare

Sometimes I Think You
Are Still Right There,
Over My Shoulder
In The Chair

I Can, Never Say In
This Song How
Much You Are Missed
Yesterday And More Now

You'll Never Know
You'll Never Guess
How Much I Miss You
Big Man

You'll Never Know
You'll Never Guess
How Much I Miss You
Big Man

Nice to have something new from you, Len. This sounds fantastic - the move to Logic is very noticeable on this. The production is great - your voice sounds deep and rich on this - a sweet tribute to your dad.

A nice
tribute in the lyrics Len, and the clarity stands out both in the vocal and the instruments.... a more powerful sound than previously, so I guess that's due to the Logic 8, nice one, cheers M

fathers
Very well witten words to remember your father. You write "You Were, The One, I Looked To For Direction". Something that is true for me too.

Your music is always very cool. The sounds has a strange vibe to them, but the way you put them together makes them pull in the same direction. Well crafted.

Yes I think Logic does suit me. There is still so much in it that I have no clue whatsoever about. It will be a long, long time before I will feel proficient.
Thanks for the lovely comments Neil (I was expecting more of a critique when I saw your name there, got a bit worried).

I really appreciate your unstinting support Jack. My wife bought me Logic for my birthday a couple of weeks ago - but I didn't tell her until afterwards. I am trying to get to grips with it and enjoying the challenge.
Thanks again Jack, nice to think you have downloaded.

Thanks for listening John - the reason for 'Big Man' was because he said to me when he was about 84ish and just a shadow of his former self, how he used to be a 'Big Man'. Which he most certainly was in every sense of the word.
Thanks again.

Bud - I now have to look up Stephen Merrit/Magnetic Fields - new name(s) to me. Very pleased you liked it and thanks for the comment. I haven't wrestled Logic to the ground by any means yet, maybe just got one arm up its back. Although it seems to be yielding bit by bit easier than I thought it would.
You must summon the courage, it's worth it.
