Description
I guess the best way I would describe this song is how people can seem to find themselves facing temptation - and making mistakes, and knowing that no one's perfect. Lots of human faults there. Plus, I liked using the capo and chord progression. In other words, it's far from Tolstoy and I hope you enjoy it. I have to thank Sig for the remix - very nice work!. And finally, thanks to Chris Flynn for pushing me to post it.

Lyrics
I met her in the back room, I was
Looking for the phone booth
I said that’s not the whole truth
I just had to know her name

And she said
I can’t believe you used that line
I hear it all the time
But something in your eyes that says you’re okay

Darling I would walk a thousand miles
Across cut glass just to see you smile
Someday I’ll know why I’m running to you

Said let’s get out of here
My place is very near
Just one more beer before we steal away

And she said
If you want to be mine
You gotta love me full time and one more thing
Put that wedding ring away

Darling I would walk a thousand miles
Across cut glass just to see you smile
Someday I’ll know why I’m running to you

I’ve been running away all my life
And there’s no sign of slowing down
Maybe you and I
Can turn it all around

Met her in the back room, I was
Looking for the phone booth, well
That’s not the whole truth
I just had to know her name

And she said
We might not get too far
But I’ll love you for who you are
There’s something in your eyes that says you’re okay

Darling I would walk a thousand miles
Across cut glass just to see you smile
Now I know, I know why
Now I know, I know why
Now I know why I’m running to you
I’m running to you
I’m still running

Sure it ain't Tolstoy but it's good. Great groove, cool changes and your singing is superb--soulful and warm. Love the B-3 and mando. Excellent post!

Finally! Such a great song Steve! I love the mandolin, it really gives the song the color that it needs. You're voice is as always, earthy, warm and direct....creates a real feeling of sincerity. The lyrics are really well written and create a melancholy mood for me....This is just exceptional songwriting. Congrats on a great post my brutha!

Thank you, Flynn Man. Kevin is a monster musician, isn't he? That mandolin is subtle but really makes a mark. Thanks again for pushing me to post. I appreciate the support. Let's get another one of your tunes rolling soon.

Thank You!
Whoa - you're way too kind. Oozing? HAHAHA. Seriously, I appreciate the feedback. This song was actually a demo that a monster musician friend of mine worked on the instrumentation about 15 years or so ago to bring it to a more rounded tune. He killed on the mandolin which I agree is one the best parts. Thanks again and looking forward to more posts in the future.

smooth as uncut glass
Welcome... excellent lyrics, singing, and playing, great songwriting. The song style, singing, and (gorgeous but soft) mandolin gives this a "Hooters" feel (a great thing in my book.) Beautiful lighting on the photo too, but then, I guess THAT is your thing too :-)
ttfn,

HOLY COW - I really appreciate the comments. I wish I'd thought of the mandolin but that was an old friend of mine in the area I worked with about 15 or so years ago. He took my song and put some mandolin and organ in the back and really made it come to life. Sigmund then put his talent to it with a re-mix and off we go. Working with some crazy talented people is really an amazing experience. And I have to ask - how did you know that was my photo?

Strong lyrics, and they are phrased in tasty way. The acoustic, organ and mando combine to give the backer a very warm feel. Vocs are absolutely top notch, they project both grit and sincerity at the same time.

Yeah, well maybe
Tolstoy's somewhere saying "Damn, I wish I could write like that", or play like that, or sing like that. All are very, very good. Welcome aboard man, and enjoy your stay; but, put that wedding ring away ;-)

HYSTERICAL!
Yeah, I'm sure Tolstoy would want that - more likely he's fighting off the twenty-something, Lisa Loeb glasses-wearing, Literature major groupies with their lattes and Macbooks. HAHAHA. Seriously, thank you for the kind words and the warm welcome. Looking forward to many more posts.

Steve, this is just a great song. The music is well crafted and your vocal performance is absolutely top notch. I would characterize this as one big slice of good old down home Americana, and it is as good as it gets. Truly enjoyed - hope to hear more from you!

Sorry for the delay. I'm trying to get better at this. Thank you for the really great feedback. until posting this tune, I'd never heard anyone describe my vocals as "earthy". I kinda like that. HAHA. Many thanks.

Nice song, it has the vibe of The Faces about it to my ear - the mandolin strings and your voice a bit like early Rod Stewart.

Welcome Steve
Great song Steve. Love the topic and lyrics, vocal, overall production - the works! Yes, the mando and organ are the perfect additions. I hear shades of Don Henley in here.

Welcome to MacJams!!

If all of your posts are like this song we will be truly spoiled.

Love the composition of that photo with the warm and cool contrast around the 2 concentric circles of the the glass covering the ring. Nice choice for an image.

Cheers,
Doug

Thanks Doug! I'm glad to finally be a part of MacJams - this has been the best welcoming. I so appreciate the feedback on the tune (I'm a BIG Henley fan so that's a great compliment). Glad you like the image as well. It's weird how some things can happen just because you're bored and waiting for a pizza at the bar at Grimaldi's. I just started playing with my ring and shot glasses - and that image happened. Thanks again.

Quality all the way. I especially like the vocal - warm and with a touch of raspy that gives it a "been there" quality. Beautiful tune. Great sounds from the guitars. Thanks for the download!
