Liner Notes: 

another wonderfully inspiring lyric from the brilliant cindy prince, we shall be releasing an album of our collaborations shortly on bandcamp.

Lyrics: 

I feel like I'm walking a tightrope
I feel like I'm going to hit the ground
There isn't anyone there to catch me
And when I land there'll not be a sound

I feel like I'm in a wooden barrel
Going over Niagara Falls
There's nothing there to stop me
There is no one that cares at all

Chorus
Am I truly invisible?
Or is there nothing of me to show?
I'm disappearing as I write this
There's no place for me to go
No place for me to go

I feel like I'm running through fire
Or in another century I've drowned
There's no sign of me anywhere
Not one piece of me can be found

I feel like this is my destiny
Though I cannot understand why
No one is there to care about me
But now is the time to say goodbye

Repeat chorus



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

Wonderful! Somber and gosh I love that chorus. I wasn't even sure where this one came from-but maybe I wrote it especially for you! Just love it!

This is so haunting. The vocal delivery is just right, it feels like something that'd be in a very good movie about a lonely drifter. Gave me goosebumps, excellent work!
And the harmonica at the end? Wow.

Bill takes Cindy's delicate and desolate lyric to such a mournful and affecting place in a wonderful performance that captures all of their poignancy...stunning co-write!

The lyrics are very well served by the music here. The chorus is particularly good, staring on a minor chord is just right. Good work both of you.

High and lonesome. Your lived-in voice is made for mournful songs like these! Love the "wooden barrel" line.

Just listened to Gwyn and Cindy's most recent collaboration and it is so different from this one--but that's the magic of Cindy's lyrics, and how the guys interpret them. Great mood-setting here, Bill, and another terrific, heartfelt performance!
