Liner Notes: 

Song explores the balance between, hope, corruption and belief in a better way of living.


The Wishing Well

Her feet were golden, against the morning dew,
She turned her back on everything she knew
Her heart was never, up for sale.
So she cast her thoughts into that wishing well.

The feast was over and the candles out,
The evening sang into that soundless sound,
As he waits for the nightingale,
Still believing that wishing well.

The path was longer that it should be,
The window opens for all to see.
And time will whistle, as hearts do swell,
As they tip their lives into that wishing well.

The feast was over and the candles out,
The evening sang into that soundless sound,
And time did whistle, through those hearts that swell,
Still believing in that wishing well.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

You've got your sound. So genuine! You've got some metaphorical touches, some great word pictures and well written lines in this song. I find this song appealing enough to add to my playlist. I just may do that!

Very, VERY nice, Greg! I love the instrumentation. Really like the chord progression, too. Excellent performance. The timbre of your voice makes this even more special. "And time did whistle through those hearts that swell, still believing in that wishing well." Now, that's a line!

The simplicity of acoustic guitar and piano coupled with your voice is just beautiful. Love to see this live Smile

I'm loving the texture of your voice; sounds excellent against the strumming.
Meaningful writing with depth and beauty to it.
Sway-worthy melody.
Quite a nice track!
