Everlasting Care
©1992 Christopher Guse for Nail in the Eye Productions

Ashen wonder in your straight stare
Vague figures dance in your eyes and hair
Reminding me of why I am and who you are
Forever close either near or far

So I ask
Why contemplate?
So much love and so much faith
A Faberge nightmare
Laced in the gold and silver string
of everlasting care

Natures beast at last for me
For your heart I hold the key
Cut from pain and despair
Smithed from everlasting care

Ink the word and save a page
Record it all from a darker age
Of youth wasted from time
Youth taken from new kind
Of everlasting care

Nice introduction
I really like your description of yourself, your intro to your
creative pursuits. Made me laugh. This is a cool song
with thoughtful production. Excellent balance and
compositional construction. Reminds me of a Scottish
rock tune from 1974. When something would happen to
me when I was a kid, Dad would say, "Better than a poke
in the eye with a sharp stick." And so is your music.

I like it, ok.
Great, top quality production values. Except the snare,
which is too soft in the opening and closing sections.

The guitar solo goes places that certainly aren't where I
want to go. There's some weird note choices there.

Nice groove and atmosphere, but I like melodies that have
more changes.

Nice Pink Floydish guitar, interesting Tom Petty-like
vocals, sweet brooding harmonies.. my only critique is
that some of the lyrics were hard to discern, so posting
the lyrics here would have helped. The voice level was
good and clear, maybe better enunciation in a few places?

Thanks folks!
Thanks for all the comments, folks. I appreciate them and
take them to heart.

This song is sooooo old and so different from the original
recording. It was very simple, with only a couple of
acoustic instruments and no drums or percussion. When I
came across it again a couple of years ago it didn't
resonate with me anymore. It was from a time before I
had a wife, kids, house or career. But I've always liked
playing it, and found that if I replaced the word 'hate' in
the lyric with the word 'faith' it changed from a bitter
unconditional love song to a positive unconditional love
song (albeit with a twinge of lost youth...).

So if your still embroiled in the bitter angst of youth, just
replace 'faith' with 'hate' and you're all set!

It made sense then to rework it and even add my wife and
children's voices to it.

Enough. I personally actually like this song - which I can't
say for a lot of what I do. It's great fun to lay into the solo
- and yes the solo is as it should be. I have yet to figure
out what the weird note choices are [see Troy's
comments], but will keep looking. :-)
