Description
There are more bumper stickers about “time” than I can list here (“Time is my enemy”, “There is no time like the present”, “Time what a concept”) you get the idea. I’m going to guess there are a lot of them adorning car bumpers belonging to guys my age (no, don’t ask).

So when my wife suggested I write songs about subjects closer to my age than teen angst, a couple subjects came to mind, time and my right knee’s meniscus, both of which were bothering me. After failing to find any words in any language that rhymed with meniscus, I moved on to time. So here you have it … “Time And Again”.

My challenge was to orchestrate this song with only my guitar with numerous overdubs, chimes, ostinato base, etc. I regard this a work in progress. Any one hear any tight vocal harmonies?

Lyrics
Vs1
Time, it has no friends,
It has no season, time never ends.
Time’s only story is just how fast it goes,
Time is a taker and everybody knows
Time and again … time and again

Vs2
Time, time is a thief,
It robs you blind while you’re asleep,
Time has no shadow, you’ll hear no sighs,
And in the morning, the mirror never lies.
Time and again … time and again

Break

Vs3
So friends, don’t waste a beat,
Live every moment, make them all sweet,
Find a friend who might just need your hand,
And make that moment a memory time can’t have.
Time and again … time and again

Repeat
Find a friend who might just need your hand
And make that moment a memory time can’t have.

Good draft...
This is nice, and I like the guitar work you have in this... it is a little loose still as far as time-ing, but is lush and pretty. The singing seems slightly halting as you sing, maybe blur the lines a little to smooth this out (some of that may also be the vocal leaps you are doing.) The lines I liked the best were the ones you cut from this version! I think they were something like:

Time once gave me strength
In school to throw the discus
But it's gone and in its place
Left my knee with meniscus.
(smirk)

I had a good time listening, and wish I had spent some time learning to sing and play something. Enjoy your talents! We do!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Nice tune Harn and yes I can hear a second vocal on this.Your vocal work,both voice and delivery as well as your song crafting remind me of "Year Of The Cat".....Al Stewart?Don't know if that is the cat's name or not.Regardless, I really enjoyed this post.Good stuff!

My roots are from Iowa and my love of music came from my mother who would haul the family into open-mic clubs to sing when we were on vacations. The Bitter End in the Village circa early 1960-something, was the most fun. I’m not sure what the aud... [see more]
