Lyrics
Well I never confused
the spark with the fuse...
So I never knew why you said I was your Muse
Said I gave you the moon
Why did you leave so soon
Ashes and embers still warm
in a circle of stones

Late nights and coffee
Under the stars
Bella Amore..
and your old guitar...
Moses was just
Blood sweat and dust in the end...

I still have all your notes
Random lyrics and quotes
The songs and the poems that I read when I'm missing you
Said I'd never forget
And you know I haven't yet...
Were you that far behind
or that far ahead of your time?

Late nights and coffee
Under the stars
You'd play Delilah
On my old guitar...
And Moses was just
Blood sweat and dust in the wind...

All beginnings are ends
You made your amends
The years how they flew but we were the truest of friends
It all comes round again...
that's one thing you always knew
Most people fake it
But you learned to dance your way through....

Late nights and coffee
Under the stars
Bella Amore..
and your old guitar...
And Moses was just
Blood sweat and dust in the end...

I still miss you my friend
I will see you again
Bye and bye in the end
Till I see you again

very catchy
vocal tune. Top notch production. These lyrics are characterized by rhetorical questions and nouns tied to adjectives. verbs seem few and de-emphasized. That's interesting, but I'd recommend experimenting with their usage a bit more to make your language flow a little bit more. The harmonica interlude was pleasing, though I'd recommend that you flee from the stereotypical dylanesque style of playing and focus on the single note root of the chords as opposed to the leaky, full-mouth chords you've got going on right now. But I nitpick...this is a very, very good song.

Hello
Thanks for the harp advice, something for me to work on :-)....The lyrics are inspired by my late friend's poetry, so I filled this song with imagery he's used, plus some of my own...Thanks for listening and taking time to make some great commentary! :-)

I like your
lyrics and your performance. Sweet song about remembering someone you cared for. I don't understand the "Moses was just blood sweat and dust.." but that probably is because I'm wondering about the reference and how that is relevant. Beautiful vocal. Thank you.

Ah, Moses....
This song is an homage to a late friend who was a fantastic poet and songwriter....The first two lines in one of his songs was "Moses was just blood sweat and dust..." He was a genius and a mentor of mine...

. Good lyrics and vocals.Nice tonal quality to your voice and I like the harp ... it is very honest and natural like your performance. I would have ended with another bar or two of the harmonica to bring it home. Good tune.

Meaningful....
Hi Lori. Had me from the opening notes. Like your voice a lot. Really strong song with intelligent, meaningful lyrics. Nice mix, too. A very strong follow up to your first MJ song. Well done. Take care, Peter.

Thanks Karen!!
I could have sang this song better had I been performing it for a while then recorded it, rather than just write it and record it...Glad you like my chorus; I think it's probably the best chorus to a song I've ever written...

I like the images in the lyrics - powerful. A rich tone to the vocal, with the harmonies adding some further depth. The simple harmonica line and the harmonies that follow it add to the mood. The recording is clean. Much enjoyed!
