Description
I've had the opportunity to collaborate with some fine musicians, Lester Long and Tom G. (DarkPlanet). Both helped bring this composition to life. This song has changed hands for quite some time, was first posted on macjams as an open collaboration with only acoustic guitar and a drum progression under the name "Better Find". Tom and Fred quickly responded and wanted to help out. A special thanks to Fred (loob) for scouting out Lester and sending him the files to work with via Fred's site on Facebook, the results were nothing but spectacular. Tom turned the song around adding some fine lyrics and a fantastic vocal melody. Wow! What more can I say but thank you.

Lyrics
Red light across the sky
Glowing faces around the fire
The earth turns and we hold on tight
You friends shine like the stars
In the universe tonight

You won't be left alone
The Human Light will guide your way back...Home

You are like high tide rolling in from the sea. The waves crashing through eternity

You are like the night sky rolling with the summer breeze. The day crushes your reality

Your life is an empty canvas you decide what to paint...

Excellent acoustic!
What a great collab. Where did you find Tom G.? I haven't seen him around in ages. He did a nice job, too.

Really good song boys. Well done.

Thanks for coming back to macjams and dropping by to listen to this. Just to let you know... Tom found this tune and what a great job he did creating a nice vocal melody and writing some fitting lyrics. This just goes to show how valuable this site really is.

Better find gets better
Nice old school prog, but with much improved lyrics. Very refreshing to hear this kind of music at MJ. Excellent collab, and much enjoyed.

Spacey, almost alt CSN vibe to this one, John. Like the vocal work and the arrangement. The songs builds to a fine conclusion. As others have said, cool! Thanks, Peter.

Reminded me why I loved early British prog rock. Light echos of Genesis, Yes, and the Moody Blues. So well put together.

Very nicely done ... I like the volume of the vocals around the 3:00 mark ... they stand out ... like the flange guitar that takes it out. Sounds like a tricky mix ... well done collab

It was a difficult mix, I never got the bass levels right in my opinion and wanted to make sure that the excellent piano wasn't buried. The drums were turned up to give it a driving feel. I didn't maximize the final master as much because I wanted to keep some of the dynamics. I think it sounds better if you turn it up a tad. Thanks for your input, it means a lot.

Very nicely done, I like where the vocals sit in the mix. It has an old school Doobie Brothers feel to me, keys and guitars are really nice.

I first read the title as "Human Feel Light/Dark Planet, etc" (and it does have a human feel). Some collabs just work. A nice listen, thanks.

Has that bit of...
"Across The Universe" meets "Here Comes The Sun" meets Big Star...

Neatly melodic and neatly layered, John. Some parts very clear and bright and some parts sort of cloudy... It all makes for ear candy...

I like the comparison. I have to agree... some parts were cloudy, I really needed some help. Thanks for listening and your valuable input.

I like the breezy arrangement. Tight playing and nice groove. Vocals/harmonies work well, could be up in the mix a db or 2 for my taste. Cool lead break.
