Liner Notes: 

saw this on a wine bottle and decided to play off it a bit- had real fun with the lyrics, some of the lines even made me smile. enjoyed doing this one - didnt get the guitar perfect - but the best i can do these days. its a very positive song! before i disappear down the dark music well

Lyrics: 

We ride into the future
On the heels of kings
Never looking backwards
Excited by what it brings

The key to life is easy
No need to be savant
Its wanting what you get
not getting what you want

We are lovers not toreadors
Thats no bull
Your cup may be half empty
But ours is half full

Instrumental

We are lovers not toreadors
Thats no bull
Your cup may be half empty
But ours is half full

This is our arena
The world our audience
We want to be right in the fight
Not sitting on the fence

No corridors or backrooms
Keeping in the hunt
Leading by example
Always at the front

We are lovers not toreadors
Thats no bull
Your cup may be half empty
But ours is half full

We are lovers not toreadors
Thats no bull
Your cup may be half empty
But ours is half full

Your cup may be half empty
But ours is half full

I try very hard to remain positive, but oh boy it's difficult at the moment. So I shall remember this song the next time my sunny disposition is challenged.

And if this was written just as a setup for using the line "That's no bull" it was totally worth it. Smile

That line is a terrific launching point, and the dual guitars here have such an upbeat, happy feel that they definitely bring a smile to my face. What a terrific pick-me-up!

An enjoyable listen. I like your vocals, the words, guitar and beat. All work well together. Good message too!

sounds ace from chord 1. feels like the music is driving yet the vocals float above it. i am getting hints of cold play meets robbie williams (my favourite ) nice concept too and yes as Chris said worth it for the bull line haha

solid medium tempo rock ballad with a positive message carried forth b the guitars. very good lyrically, although i may quibble with the word toreador as i find the spanish torero nore sonorous.
