Back From The Edge

« Last Edit: November 16, 2020, 13:51:32 by Leonard Scaper »
I have been somewhat distracted of late. With all that has been going on in the world, particularly here in the States, I have  pulled back from writing....and even listening....while I watch the storm clouds gather and wait for them to break.

As I watched the headlines these last weeks, however........this song just tumbled out.

Back From The Edge
https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=14142995


Ease on back
Not too slow
Walk it back nice and slow
Step back nice and easy
And let this go
Check your tack
And unless the facts
Show a reason to stay your course
Step back from the edge

Step back from the edge my friend
And see what we have found
Climb down from that ledge
And see that the world turned out to be round
We are all just family
No matter what he said so please
Step back and....

Take my hand
Join the family band
And step back from the edge

INSTRUMENTAL

Step back from the edge and see
There are other ways to go
Things will soon improve
If you just change what you think you know
If you need more proof
Look in your heart to see the truth
And step back from the edge

Ease on back
Not too fast
Walk it back nice and slow
Leave your past behind
And let this moment free your soul
I am here to guide you
Maybe it's time to let this go
And step back from the edge

Take my hand
And maybe you'll understand
And step back from the edge

I have such a smile of my face @Leonard Scaper at present.

I love how all the uncertainly and upheaval has created this one. :-) Maybe you needed a jump-start :-)

When I heard the line " Step back nice and easy now... And let this go" I could almost picture police talking down protestors.

Some nice Vox doubling in places. Nice instrumental section. Nice overall mix. Love the  harmonics. Guitar tone sounds good.

This is a song of hope

Top class work my friend ...back in the zone methinks  8)

I agree with @MrBouzouki
What we need are songs and dance and what not with a healing effect.
And we’re going to need them badly.

Glad that you are back @Leonard Scaper
I listened twice already to get back in the groove/mood what’s its name.
Love it!
Kind regards, Gus

Ahhhh, I do love this.

If I recall correctly, a few months ago I may have said, in response to a previous Lenny song, that there is always hope. Always.

Hola @Leonard Scaper

Listening again your song and liking it again!!! It sounds soft, very nice to listen to and the lyrics I think they can open a lot of images in other eyes.

Stay safe, Cuídate mucho

@Leonard Scaper  :lol: :lol: :lol:

I suspect that this song has an important background at the family level, etc ... and that seems to worry you and I am sorry if it does.
For the rest the song is perfect and could perfectly be a hit on the radio  ::Rachel::

Congratulations  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Great message and wonderfully put together.   You have such a cool sound and  that is more so even with this subject matter.  Lets hope for better days!

You don’t have to remember me that I always say the the most beautiful flowers grow very close to the edge, but sometimes it’s best not to get too close to the flowers.
Funny how just this morning the name of the song struck me.
Kind regards, Gus
