Liner Notes: 

Skirmish. 15 minutes only today. Too early for music

Lyrics: 

V1 Id rather light a candle
than curse the darkness
Id rather lie in the sun
And enjoy the winter starkness

V2 Id rather dance in the rain
Than wait for the sunshine
Id rather love and lose
Than just while away my time

C Life is just one long journey
You have to find a away
To make it back to the start
Each and every day

V3 I wont row out further
Than i can row safely back
Ill focus on what i can do
Not the things i lack

V4 ride this rollercoaster
Of all my fears and hopes
Sometimes climbing mountains
Sometimes down the slopes

C Life is just one long journey
You have to find a away
To make it back to the start
Each and every day

B Enjoy enjoy enjoy
With each step advance
Remember that so many
Never get this chance

C Life is just one long journey
You have to find a away
To make it back to the start
Each and every day



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

I like the theme of finding happiness in the situation you have, no the one you want (or should want). What a lovely sentiment!!

Beautiful lyrics and take on skirmish. I take it music to follow so looking forward to it. Remember, you promised Smile

I like the verse about the rowing, acceptance of what one can and cannot acheive.

This is a very positive attitude song. Here's what we've got, it's pretty darn good so let's live. Yeah...good thoughts.

I am big into living life a glass half full, rather than half empty. This is a lovely example of this. It's simplicity is deceptive, and I think it's that apparent easy on the ear thing that makes it so very memorable Smile Great skirmish Smile

Wise words! Indeed, each day is a blessing and a new start, and unfolds with wonder. Concisely written and packed with good advice. Would love to hear what you do musically with this!

Poetical approach to the skirmis. Lovely flow and great use of words. Great message built in.
