My friend Ella is a violinist, we play together sometimes and I recorded her violin on this song.
The microphone wasn't the best but she's a good violinist so I think it sounds good anyway.

s this the first line?
Is this the first page?
Of an epic story
Lifetime long
Full of incident,
Love and glory

Or just a footnote
Soon forgotten
Cast aside from history
I guess I don’t know
Wait to find out
What will be

Time will tell

Is this the first line?
Is this the first word?
Of a little vignette
A moment brief
Just a snapshot
The second when we met

Or is it something more
Something to hope for
Something grander
Will there be a chance
To take some time
To understand her

Time will tell

This century
Sounds very up to date, especially in the vocal style and guitar work, with nice touches from the violin.

Take your point about the mic perhaps not being the best, but still a good song to listen to.

Thanks for the post.

Powerful performance
The strength of the song and performances shine through despite the limitations of your microphone. You've got a very radio friendly singing voice and I reckon this would appeal to David Grey fans.

Not heard the original posting but the fiddle playing is sympathetic and works well here.

You have a good voice. This is a good song and the violin is a nice addition. Would like to hear this song with better recording quality though - I saw your note about the microphone.

thanks for the nice comments and feedback... Hopefully sometime soon we'll go into a studio and record it again properly, perhaps with a little bass, percussion and some female backing vocals
