Lyrics
I've Been Chasin The Sun for Years
I've been wishin the moon would disappear
Keep on travelling down this windy road
For how long will my travels go?
Milling through the days as I walk ahead
Wandering where we go when we're all dead
Kalidescope colors flash before my tired eyes
Just can't catch that golden star which ahead lies


Still Frame Photos Locked Inside
Day Dreams of Paradise
Still Chasin that sun that eludes...
My Life


I've cried a million tears over my fears
I've seen a thousand men just disappear
March even when the crowd is gone
Without out your tune there's an end
Sunset orange colors out the day
The moon begins to show again
Still songbirds sing at the night
Knowing tomorrow could shine bright

Still Frame Photos Locked Inside
Day Dreams of Paradise
Still Chasin that sun that eludes...
My Life


Sunlit orchards stuck in my frame of mind
Chasin the horizon from line to line
Riding on the beams that brought me here
Can't get close to what is real
Wore from the chase I have lead
Still trails were made where I have tread
I've been chasin this sun for years
I've been wishin the moon would disappear

Good offering
Like when the drums come in. It may have a few mixing issues, but I dig this tune. Sweet. Another good offering.

Thanks Dave
For always giving my stuff a listen and a comment I appreciate it. I'll listen to the drums a bit. I think the guitar is a little too low also but sometimes with just one acoustic track it can get lost.

Oh, I really like this...
I am really glad I click on this song. You two really make nice music. And this one really is so inviting. Classic chord progression with matching lyrics. And I love your vocal. No tech input here. Just saying you're hitting a good vibe, which makes a good song. A cool retro song. Need more of these.

Kind words
From Feter and Dadai and I thank you so much. I try to kind of have an old style feel. I mean I was born in the 80s so I don't have an all old school soul in me but its the music that I listen to the most and that drives me the most so thanks for the kind words...now as for being a PA Boy, Steelers Fan or Eagles...Steelers here. :)

Love it! The vocs start out a little slow but then the song takes on a wonderful groove. Great vocs and drum work, nice live sound.

TIme Period
You capture perfectly the late 60's early 70's "Song Writer Singer" period, many great artist came from that era. I enjoyed the song, at times the cymbals were a bit loud. The guitar work was fun to hear.

this recording
Has a good live feel, I like the guitar sound and the vocal.

Your voice reminds me of someone and I can't think who. Did you write this song ?

I think it would be good to sing a counter harmony starting maybe a third below. I'm sure that would work really well. Your music is fresh and honest and without pretentions which are all good things.

this recording
Hi John. This is an original. I wrote the guitar / lyrics. My friend came up with the bass, my wife did the melody / vox, and our other friend played drums. Believe it or not the drummer used to be a straight up punk / hard rock drummer but he lays down some nice tracks for acoustic type music. He doesn't think so but I've enjoyed his creativity. I think we under thought a lot on this project being our first recording experience ever. I look for the songs ahead to be a little more lush and full. THanks for the listen / comments.
