Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Vic had a lot to do with the production and guitars and I'd like to thank for his work on this song.
I wrote this some years ago and found it in my song book one day. 200+ songs..is it just a hobby?

Hope you enjoy!

Lyrics
I’m Really Not Here

I once threw it all away, couldn’t take it anymore
I tried to start it up again, but I couldn’t find the door
Somebody turned to me; I couldn’t see her face
Just like the time I find when I had a little space

You can see me
You can hear me
But I’m really not here

What lurks behind those circles in the middle of his eyes?
Does he have a place to go when he wants to hide?
Wondering, wondering what’s he doing here
Wondering, wondering what‘s he doing here

You can see me
You can hear me
But I’m really not here

If I only had a brain
Your last one was tremendous. Loved it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on this one. Always appreciate your words.

I always wanted to have that name, "Crazy Horse". I think that is one of the coolest names for a band. Curse Neil.

Very enjoyable
Love the bass sound. A really nice song with a sweet melody, well performed and delightfully Vicified.

MacJams collaboration is a joyous thing.

Great..
Great song, happy to hear a new song from you both again. Loved the work very much, one of your best vocal deliveries I guess and as usual a treat listening to Vic's music... Cool!

Take Care

Thanks Yeman. I'm not 100% happy with my vocals on this, but heck, no one is paying us.

Thanks, friend.

Very cool
This is great; the combination of Vic's guitar and your vocal delivery is potent! I like the lyrics and the singing is great - you perform this with real attitude and verve. The guitar works really well - blistering solo work and lovely sound throughout. A great collaboration - one of those marriage made in heaven kind of deals! Looking forward to more! Nicely done to both of you. Peace.

A big Thanks Dave
Originally I thought it would take me a few days to work this through on my end. But, once I got going I couldn't stop. The tune has a cool up beat feel that really got my motivation up.

So, a big thanks Dave, for letting me have some fun with this tune.

What a sound. I like everything about it. At times I hear the Undertones then the Beatles[the Lennon side].

Great song as well. Good work both of you- absolutely excellent.

Nice collab!
Remarkable restraint on the drums - I wish I could hold back like that! Vic's guitars work really well with your vocals on this - a very cool rocker.
I can hear what Vic says about it growing on him, and being unable to leave it alone.
Solid post,

diggin' the swirly guitars (phaser?) in the verse. the whole mix is very clear and upfront, nice job. cool idea with the a capella ending and long reverb trail!
