Beat you drum beat your drum
Keep your fire burning strong.
Hit it hard hit it fast
Beat your drum beat your drum.

Slide across those silver strings
Move me with your bells that ring….

Sing a song of sorriness
Of broken hearts and souls obsessed

Play your pipes soft and low
Bathe me in your afterglow.

Tap a tune so sweet and clear
Floating on an Angels tear…

Strum it fast strum it loud
Surfin’ on a thundercloud….

Bend your notes bend your mind
Make it last for all time….

Blast off to the universe
Riding on a thousand stars.

Take us to infinity
We’ll follow with humility….

This song is fantastic! It starts out sounding very 1965, and by the end it's evoking sounds from 1985. It's gradual and keeps building. I liked this a lot.

Good one
Music and lyric fit hand in glove. It does have 60's pop vibe, with a folky bent. Very nice writing and a great sound also. Enjoyed very much.

Excellent lyric Dennis
Great vocal and some very nice backup on this one. You never fail to get the message across in your own way, and that's what make your body of work so good. This is m=no exception to that.

Excellent production with great dynamics and of course your guitar leads are to die for. Thanks for sharing this one my friend.

Be well and be cool,
