Description
This should have been so easy. The music "KTB" so beautiful, the concept so simple. I just wanted to say something to my son. I started this song on the 31 of october with everything done. All the music and melodies, lyrics and structure in place. I couldnt sing it because the sentiment was too much for me to get out without getting all choked up. I will never do a song like this again. I thank everyone here who has helped me explore music again. It has been some of the best emotional growth for me. I am likely to head into another of my hobbies and just wanted to say thanks. I will try to be available here but think I may have spent what I have for now. Thank you John for the music.

Lyrics
your dreams are still gold
your future still untold
I wish the world
was a simple question
if it was
Id give the answer to you
but you cant live by suggestion
youll need to make a mistake or two
little man of mine
I wont be that far behind
and if you ever need a helping hand
im there
Is there still truth
is there still right from wrong or
can a real man be
defined by the stones he uses
to build a life
or will he bury his hopes
and dreams
little man of mine
I wont be that far behind
and if you ever need a helping hand
im there
dont let light go dark inside
hold on for the new sunrise
theres always hope for a man of truth
never let them take that from you
never let them make up your mind
not with their headlines
not with their old timey ways
with their hands on the grave
they cant make it all go away
little man of mine
I wont be that far behind
and if you ever need a helping hand
im there

Untold is how many more great collars you have in you my friend. Love your lyrics "defined by the stones he uses" you can say a lot between the words. Man, I hope you stay, contribute, lurk, or otherwise hang :-) Your presence and friendship means a lot to me. So thrilled to hear this. The fact that it was for your Son all the more powerful.

hmmm so you will never do
an ong like this again ? kay,air nough.......but enough of the gags...this is clearly an emotionally charged production,with a sentiment that I cannot equate to having no offspring...but I can clearly get the depth of the feelings of that sentiment from the strength of the emotion in this song.....the piano sounds Supertrampish ......which is great....

Gaylen, this really hits home, I like the way that you have always poured everything into your songs...it takes guts and can sometimes leave you feeling exposed, but nevertheless liberated. KTB did an excellent job on the backer, piano is GREAT, just a pleasantly poignant release.

Wow...I live in the same house and had not a clue that this was being done. Not a "hey babe will you listen and tell me what ya think." Oh well guess I untold is a fitting title all the way around. Will have to listen when I get off work tonight! Glad you taking time to do music again as it is makes you happier!

Outstanding song
It tells exactly what I feel about my son. However part of being a parent is letting go... that means being left behind as they reach out and explore their dreams. It is been the hardest year of my life so far watching the bubble grow.

Excellent work Gaylen. Don't be a stranger now... You have too much to just turn away.

Spectacular vocals and a really solid arrangement.

I can understand the emotion as I have a song I can't sing anymore.

Brilliant lyrics.

Cheers
