Description
This song is very personal, and chokes me up every time I listen to it. It was hard to sing because of the emotion involved. It is a protest song, but the protest is against yours truly. I purposely didn't post the lyrics because I didn't want to take away from the hook in the last verse. I hope some of you can relate to it and it touches that soft spot in your heart.

Wow, Rick
Hey, you have your dad's smile. :-) We all have regrets, and hopefully we are able to lose the guilt over what we did when we weren't thinking. Really nice, strong vocals and guitar. Thank you for sharing this personal story/song with us. :-)

What a nice thing to say Roxy. He was a great man and I still aspire to be like him when I grow up.

More time...
...Yes. That's a commodity we are all sorely missing. But memories are built on experiences and, in retrospect, most of those are positive even though we may have some regrets...

Really strong vocal and driving guitar work, Rick. I totally enjoyed this song and appreciate so very much your willingness to share something so personal with us here at MJ. ... The recording itself is crisp and clear and your higher register is right on the money!

Peace.

Re: More time..
Most of my memories are good, positive ones. However, this one just had to be written about. Thanks for the nice comments Paul.

God bless,

Love the way
the soft song counters the angry guitar. Lovely heartfelt and, I hope, cathartic song and extremely well played and sung. Strange, I've just posted a song about my father too.
Cheers

I Wish We'd Had More Time.
Bless you for this very heartfelt and thought provoking song.
There was no need for written lyrics. Don't we all wish we had said things and done things at the time. In Retrospect. Have more time.

You sang this with a very beautuful heart and spirit and sounded like you meant everyword
I heard this Emotion that also came through.
It is beautiful and what a Fantastic Voice you have. Wow!!
Also brought tears to my eyes as well.

Thank you Rick for sharing your personal song with us all.

You Rock !!

From the heart
This is a very meaningful song, Rick, and it makes me want to spend more time with my own dad, and with my three kids.

Your vocal is clear and inviting. The guitar work is also very solid. You remind me a little bit of Cat Stevens, and also Harry Chapin.

Best,

John
