the surest beacon

the surest beacon

I’ve lost the early pages
These past and many years
But hardly do I miss them
Now, seeing you so clear
For the past is ever chipping
And calls not for volunteers
To paint before the present
In a color disappeared

And if time beyond perception
Is something truly gained
An element I long for
Some calm and true refrain
Then, you’re the surest beacon
Gliding o’r the fray
Baring soft serenity
Sweeter than the than rain

Starlight calls when hearts enthrall

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

Lovely ballad. I was reminded right off the top of Mumford & Sons frontman. I think it's more in the expertise of the lyrics and the delivery. But man, this is solid work here.

Keep the party moving!

Really like the melodic line on this one. Lovely and a little unexpected. You have such a gift for lyrics--not a word out of place!

I really like all the open space in this... moments where everything is suspended just for a second. Really pulls me in. And of course, your performance is brilliant as always.
