Lyrics
Once upon a time

Once upon a time, you and I, we ran together
Once upon a time, you and I, we were so clever
Once upon a time, you and I, we last forever
I still wonder how you feel
I still wonder how you feel
Someone always rescues one from harms way
Someone's reward is love everyday
Sometimes, somethings begin to fray
Sometimes, someone is swept away
Once upon a time, you and I, we ran together
Once upon a time, you and I, we were so clever
Once upon a time, you and I, we last forever

Don't know why...
this tune hasn't had any responses. Alley-oop, this is a beautiful song. Lovely guitar work and the lyrics are golden. Then added to that you sing them with such feeling. Guitar and vocal are seamless. Kudos and thanks for this gem.

Lovely Piece
This is a beautiful little tune that engages the listener in a very personal, one-to-one way. Not easy to do, but you've done it here, my friend. ;) Lovely guitar sound and chops. What kind of guitar are you playing? It sounds great. :)

Bravo
I'm popping into macjams and I noticed Jack's post about this song. Glad I followed the link :-) Fantastic playing and singing. What a brilliant song. I really like the way you've panned the guitar and vocals. And wow, you certainly are a very good geetar player! This makes me think maybe I should get back into the macjams thing again...

Up Up and Away
You excel here my friend. Simple does not mean it can't be good and this is quite ecellent. Wonderful guitar arrangement and beautifully recorded. Words are something we can all relate to and resonate in that place between the last shreds of night and the faint rays of a new day.

Nicely written, played and sung
Once upon a time a fellow named Alley-Oop had a lot more songs posted here ay Macjams.

Sometimes you simply have to be happy with the few that are.

Great acoustic playing and chord progressions that create such a wonderful introduction and atmospheric underpinning for your plaintive, intimate vocals. Lovely, lovely post. Bravo. Thanks, Peter.

Beautiful guitar throughout...
...and the lyrics tell an ancient story of a relationship so gently and beautifully. I really like the way you take your time with the cadences at certain places in your recording. There is such restraint to the pacing and the result is a highly personal performance. Very VERY pleasant to hear this beautiful song. I will listen many times again because it just kind of sticks in my head unlike many other songs. Beautiful.
