Liner Notes: 

Classic rock.

Lyrics: 

Always looking for something
Under a rock or a pillow
I know it's coming

Can't all be for nothing
It might be a dream oh
But dreams keep it running

And the stars always shine
Even in the night
When the lights are too bright

Close my eyes and see reality
Is all mine

Don't tell me nothin
You can't tell me nothin
Don't tell me nothin
You can't tell me nothin

Another drop in the ocean
Filling it up, up with water
I am the motion

I can't stop this feeling
Feeling's believing
Believing in something

And it's not really fair
But nothing is fair in life
We all take what we can get

Just close my eyes and feel what fills me
And where it went

Don't tell me nothin
You can't tell me nothin
Don't tell me nothin
You can't tell me nothin

Don't tell me nothin
You can't tell me nothin
Don't tell me nothin
You can't tell me nothin

You are on an inspired roll. This really rocks and your guitar and vocals are awesome.

Love your vocal and how this is produced, nice rocking on this!!

Ooh, I like the slow burn of the rhythm guitar (and the restrained lead bits are a nice touch.) That break down is a nice arrangement touch. I like your melody and phrasing. This is a good throw back tune (I definitely feel the classic rock vibe in the music and I think the vocal is a more modern take and sounds good.)

So good! I love rock, but almost never do it myself. I'm currently uploading my last (#25) song for this year's Challenge and going to "hit the books" on my software, the rock (and other) genres, so that maybe next summer I'll be able to do something half as good as this. Great job!

Brill! The restrained chorus bursting into that energetic chorus is great and that slightly dissonant instrumental is class too.
