Liner Notes: 

I wanted to do a rock song before this thing wrapped up, so that's what I did.

Lyrics: 

Once upon a time I walked in the forest
And I didn’t see one damn tree
Why don’t we notice what's before us

Every day is another chance to tumble around a big star
And it doesn’t matter one bit who or what you are
This rock don’t stop

Every day I wake up to an alarm clock
Electronics tell me what to do
Would freedom go unanswered if it knocked

Every day is another chance to tumble around a big star
And it doesn’t matter one bit who or what you are
This rock don’t stop

Do opportunities pass so fast we never have a chance
Or are we blinded by our own imposed circumstances

Every day is another chance to tumble around a big star
And it doesn’t matter one bit who or what you are
This rock don’t stop
This rock don’t stop



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

This rocks! It is as catchy as can be with that addictive repetitive riff. I love the change up in the chorus where we are hit by a wall of sound. Great use of build ups and break downs throughout with effective use of contrasts and phrases. Love the sentiment, insight, and metaphors in the lyrics which are delivered so well by your rockin’ vocals. Winner!

Awesome riff with some lovely little ear candy on the keys. Love a good pun too!

That percussion in the verses brought to mind lowrider. and the organ nodded to that era of rock too, then the chorus just explodes (and what a great hook too)
Well done, my friend. Thanks so much for your kind words this Summer. Looking forward to when our paths happily cross again in Fab Feb. Wishing you happy skies till then.
Don't stop the rock! Smile
