Lyrics: 

Capo 3 Intro: C Am F G

C Am F G
It's been so long … but every day I miss your smile
C Am F G
It's been so long … but every day I miss your eyes
C Am
And I remember … How you held me in your arms
F G C Am F G
You held me in your arms just right … And time stood still

F C G
Now I'm here without you…With an hourglass...an hourglass of blue
F C G
Now I'm here without you…With an hourglass...an hourglass of blue
Am solo C G G … Am C G G
Hourglass of blue

C Am F G
I was so wrong … to think you would want to stay
C Am F G
I was so wrong … to think love would find a way
C Am
And I remember … how the stars shined just for us
F G C Am F G
How Heaven shined to give us faith … and time stood still

F C G
Now I'm here without you…With an hourglass...an hourglass of blue
F C G
Now I'm here without you…With an hourglass...an hourglass of blue
Am C Am C Am
Hourglass of blue … hourglass of blue … hourglass of blue

That title/hook is really powerful and effective. It conveys so much. Strong chorus. This is such a tender and beautiful ballad. Your delivery is gorgeous. Love that guitar strum and your awesome vocals. I really love this song!

Great right hand work, syncopated rhythm. Sounds good, all. Great demo.

Hourglass of blue is a fantastic hook. Love it! The lyrics are so effective. You say it all so well and deliver the powerful point without using a novel worth of words. That to me, is a great skill. Cool guitar. Especially like that bit of percussive work your ding on it to give that little something extra. That's the kind of thing that make s a guitar/vocal demo really shine. Well that and a great vocal, which you also have.

Nice melody, I like how the verses start with short memorable phrases and how they get longer and more intense towards the chorus. Chorus is really good and that little vibrato in your voice at the end of the phrases is lovely. This sounds like a blue-eyed soul song to my ears. Great title and lyrics too.

Simple yet oh so good. The lyrics are part of what the song make strong; Loved that stars part and the vocals singing it. Very likable straight forward guitar playing too. Nice!
