Lyrics
Words and Music by Charlie Chen

He once told me I must be brave
Drying the tears running down my face
Then brought me down to Old Pitt Lake
And sang me the night away

I'd swim and let the tears mix in
The moonlight kind on our bodies
No hurry to open my eyes just then
The music slowly flowing in my veins

In dreams there's just no escaping
The reality of the pleasure and pain
Hearing that strong hand strumming his guitar
I knew I was loved forever

And I know
I just know
That by the path just off the lake
Joshua is waiting for me

He told me the story of Sammy Ray
On another full-mooned night
Down by the railroad tracks till dawn
He weaved me into his tales

The rattling of the trains did soothe my heart
I fell into his protective words
We rode the trains into the story's end
When poor Sammy was in his grave

Oh, the romance that is death
When a simple man dares to love his world
The moon was bright on his ghostly face
And I knew that I had to be brave

And I know
I just know
That in the car by the railroad tracks
Joshua is waiting for me

Joshua is waiting to sing me his song
To take away my fears
I'm waiting for Joshua to write a new story
To make me a happy ending

And I know
I just know
That at the break of dawn today
Joshua is waiting for me

Drums Seem Very Heavy in the Mix to My Ears
I'm wondering what this would sound like with the drums WAY in the back
or no drums at all. Touches of theatrical Bowie here in your vocal delivery
and tune - interesting and very good.

Thanks so much for the listen and comments. I'll have another listen and pay attention to the drum track. I'm still learning about this whole mixing thing.

Cheers.
