Liner Notes: 

Saw Cindys lyric and just had to have a go. i had limited time and it still neads a bit of work but i hoe you get the drift of this fine lyric - i love that F#m

Lyrics: 

Seems I kept on driving
Even knowing the bridge was out
Seems I had no brakes
Didn't wanna try another route

Seems I kept going
Even if the signs said turn around
Seems I had no knowledge
And wouldn't go anywhere but down

Chorus
Will I ever learn
That fire burns?
Will I ever stop on the mark?
Will I ever understand
The beat of the band
Or always remain in the dark?

Seems like I kept flying
Even knowing that I would fall
Seems I kept running
Never being able to catch the ball

Seems like I kept moving
Even knowing I'd lost my way
Seems like I kept looking
Same reasons different day

Chorus
Will I ever learn
That fire burns?
Will I ever stop on the mark?
Will I ever understand
The beat of the band
Or always remain in the dark?



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

I really like the beat, and guitar rhythm. Easy to listen to that music. You put a set of great lyrics into the music, seems effortless. Makes a great song.

The music really makes the lyrics shine. Nice collab.

sounds like a sensitive country ballad sung to an aggressive rock beat. interesting how you captured both qualities in one version.

I like Mr. Cool's smooth, sensitive sounding vocal delivery on Cindy's great lyric but I also love the guitar playing which really has a rock vibe to it. Overall, a good collaboration. Enjoyed lthe listen.

Toe-tappingly good stuff...tight R&R with great lead guitar and of course...Cindy's finely crafted lyrics!

Particularly wonderful lyrics, Cindy. Really liked these in particular!

John, you must have been particularly inspired by these words--as I was. Very nice arrangement/performance!
