Wow! Skirmishes still work! One hour and a prompt equals...new song! I like the song although the recording is awful!

Lyrics: 

beginning once again
July 4, 2017
http://parksandrececommerce.com/JohnStaplesMusic-50-90/JohnStaples-BeginningOnceAgain.mp3

our story started long ago
when music played
on radios
I close my eyes
remember when
I can see our beginning once again

the seeds we planted long ago
continue to
take root and grow
I still recall
your kisses then
now we are beginning once again

you are my life
and I am yours
a true love story
we will write
for evermore

I loved you dearly long ago
my flame for you
has only grown
the years ahead
will fold us in
and we will know beginning once again

you are my life
and I am yours
a true love story
we will write
for evermore

I'm totally under spell of your beautiful song John. It is such a pleasure to listen to and to visualize the story. Beautiful lyric, singing and playing and brilliant take on skirmish. Your song has epic and timeless beauty in it.

Bravo, such a pretty love song with catchy guitar motifs. I really like the refrain hook.

I like the way you structured the verse lyric: remembering the original beginning, then the renewal. Great skirmish.

I like the dreamy feel of the song. It works well with the lyrics of memory and recollection. Nice work!

Aww, this was worth the wait to hear! Very sweet, lovely, and the beautiful, gentle music just melted me, my friend! Somehow I think you were honing in your lovely Rose with this skirmish Smile This isn't rock, but definitely one I could listen to over and over again just from the beauty within it!! Keep up the awesome work and so happy to finally be able to have the player work so I could hear it! Pure perfection Smile

Pretty and sweet, but that descending shift of the guitar adds a touch of wistfulness or troubles overcome, that gives this long love story more reality & weight.

It's really nice to hear from you again, great skirmishing Smile it's amazing that you can manage to write and record a song that transmits so much in one hour

Somehow this slipped by me until now, which is strange because there aren't that many songs on here yet! But anyway, this is a splendid start to your 50/90, with your usual (but still amazing) melodic guitar and dramatic-yet-intimate vocals bringing the touching emotion of the lyrics -- and of the long journey of the relationship depicted therein -- to life.

Digging the fingerpicking here, feels like a warm summer afternoon. I like the sentiment, and your vocal fits well with the folky tone. Congrats on pulling out a keeper from the skirmish; that's always a pleasant surprise. Great theme of the constant reinvention of relationships between people.

The fingerpicking guitar and the vocal in the verses gives this a really wistful feel. Nice romantic story in the lyrics, too.

Beautiful, heartfelt lyrics with hope and a lovely warm feel to them... The guitar tune suits them awesomely...

Pretty as a peach.

Great skirmish! This is a keeper. I'd add some of that tasty violin to the mid section. Smile
