Liner Notes: 

This was not meant to be sad. It was just a reflection how things change and your role in life with it. And you either roll with it or suffer the consequences.

Ver standard progression at first then changed up.

Lyrics: 

Everyone could see
it was perfect in every way
Just seemed to get better
Every single day

But time don’t wait for no one
It quickly moved along
With or without you it goes
For the right or for the wrong

I had Hoped it would last forever
But i know all things must pass
Now Its like a Kaleidoscope of colours
Shining through a shattered glass

The kids were all gone now
The work was for younger
I think my use by date has passed
No longer have the hunger

At least its not all dark out there
Im Looking for a path
One that still presses my buttons
even make me laugh

I had Hoped it would last forever
But i know all things must pass
Now Its like a Kaleidoscope of colours
Shining through a shattered glass

The changes weren’t what i wanted
It was like that i forgot
Cant always keep this perfect time
Eventually it will stop

I can still see the hope out there
In amongst the shards
I hope to keep going forward
With a new deck of cards

I had Hoped it would last forever
But i know all things must pass
Now Its like a Kaleidoscope of colours
Shining through a shattered glass

Really soaked in a mellow groove ... your voice is very soothing, and I like the fuzzy electric guitar low in the mix. "A kaleidoscope of colours/shining through a shattered glass" is a gorgeous line. Semi-psychedelic Sunday song!

Ooooh! I really like the imagery in the chorus. It's not sad... maybe a little bittersweet, but so is life.

Fantastic images - I really love your lyrics on this familiar topic. The chorus is absolutely beautifully. Your gentle delivery is beautiful and I can't help but away along to this lovely waltz!
