Description
Wow. Been awhile. This crummy economy has forced me to take on another job and some freelance design gigs so I have ZERO time to write and record... not to mention I recently had a pneumonia for a couple of weeks and am just now feeling like I can sing again! BUT I found a couple of hours to put this together morning. Hopefully I can bang one of these off every couple of weeks and have more of a presence here. I miss MacJams and all your guys' wonderful tunes! Happy new year.

Lyrics
WAS IT EVERYTHING YOU EXPECTED YOU WOULD SEE ?
WAS IT EVERYTHING THAT YOU DREAMED IT COULD'VE BEEN?
ARE YOU HAPPY NOW THAT YOUR LIFE IS SO FREE?
YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU LIKE

DID YOU DRIVE AWAY TILL YOU RAN OUT OF ROAD?
AND WHEN YOU GOT THERE DID YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO?
AND DID YOU GROW WINGS AND FLY AWAY HOME?
ARE YOU PERFECT NOW?

I NEED TO FEEL YOU AGAIN
TO FIND OUT IF YOU ARE REAL
OR YOU WERE A RAY ROM THE SUN
AND WHEN THE RAIN REFUSED TO FALL
DID I WATER YOU
WITH THE WATER FROM MY BLOOD?

WHEN THE SNOW HAS TURNED BACK TO WATER AGAIN
WHEN THE FLOWERS OPEN UP
I WILL LOOK UPON YOUR TRUE FACE MY FRIEND
WE WILL BE AS ONE

I NEED TO FEEL YOU AGAIN
TO FIND OUT IF YOU ARE REAL
OR YOU WERE A RAY ROM THE SUN
AND IF THE RAIN REFUSED TO FALL
I WILL WATER YOU
WITH THE WATER FROM MY BLOOD

So nice to hear you again
glad you got over the pneumonia - can really knock you down. This sounds great - I love the distant distorted lead like an organic event. The recurring acoustic triad is cool too. Nice work - and great vocals as always.

Welcome back, Kotter
I had Pneumonia a few weeks ago and it was the most fun I've had in months. But everything seems to be in order with this track. Everything you do is so crisp and clean. Great performance. Glad to see you back!

Ridd!
This sounds great - lovely production. Vocal sounds excellent, and I like the picky guitar during the opening and the cool slide break.
Great to hear you back at MJ!
Cheers and best wishes for 2011,

Love it
Loving the discord in the guitar opening, sounds very modern. Great track. And great image too - wouldn't look out of place on some Norwegian metal band's album cover.

Cool track. I like the images in the lyric "DID I WATER YOU WITH THE WATER FROM MY BLOOD?". Sparse arrangement lets the melody/vocals shine.
I like the 3 note fill at the end of the lines. Song art is cool.

I particularly like the intimate-sounding vocal and the brightness of the guitar. Nice pic too.

Welcome back
.. great texture here dude. You've been missed. Those high backing vox on "a ray from the sun" are pure Linkous style magic. Love that laid back feel and the distant echoing lead. The telephone line vox in the second part again call Sparklehorse to mind. You're in great voice here Ridd. A beautiful song.

Ridd, Missed ya man. Glad to see you back. I feel ya on the job front. I'm one of the statistics myself right now. BUT, it has given some time to do music, which is the best part by far. As they say: No one ever lay on their death bed and said "I wish I'd spent more time at the office".
Like the simplicity. The radio voice (your signature). The sparseness of it. A couple hours, huh? Well done.

Rid,
You are a writer man, pure and simple. You get so much into a song without making it seem that way. That's a true mark of an artist. Great job!
