I have been promising sami this work for his beautiful melody for quite a while. I'm sure he gave up on me by now. there's been a lot of good adds, but once i got a hook on the lyrics, the simplicity of using this version stays truest, to me, of a 1960's style song of this type. maybe a guy sitting on his blanket and strumming his guitar and singing at a love-in. my hope is to have captured ...

I like the stark simplicity of an unadorned guitar and a voice. It's very pure, authentic and speaks directly to the listener without any unnecessary burnishing. Has a Johnny Cash vibe but perhaps with some Dylan/Cohen in the lyrics (which are very on point!). Great work!+5

Neronick That's the way a composer works! You only need to know the secret "how to write the 2nd verse".
You got it.

Uloisius Yes, I'm someone who, if he could, would like to change the world, so we're already two ;o)
I think if everyone is there with what is available to him and does what he can then a lot would be achieved, if we all did that then we would have changed the world.
We all live in the world we created, in the world we deserve as humanity. The change begins in the heart and in the head of each individual, if we make ourselves aware of this then we may be able to leave those who will come after us a world they deserve, but if we do nothing then we leave a broken planet. We can all do something, we have to change, then the dire conditions that currently prevail in the world will also change ;o)
