Nice song. The music reflects the mood of the lyrics. Good piano performance. I think the vocals could be mixed in a bit better since they come off a bit loud and overpowering. If that's what you're going for, then don't change a thing.

What beautiful song you guys just gave us. Thanks for sharing, Leonard.

Is there a guitar or is it a synth or both at around 02:15? I would just add a killer guitar solo. I'm very into this kind of ballads songs. I'm a piano player myself and I really appreciate when a song captures the tenderness of the piano and the sharp sound of a guitar.

All in all well done, guys!

hey @alcapone_dudu ....yeah, that's an electric guitar there. I did have some more aggressive guitar stuff in that short instrumental but it just kept feeling like it wanted to stay stripped down there.

Thanks for that detailed listen and for your appreciation of our tune.  :).

@Pleudoniem ..........got me smiling.......please...not the jar!!!!

I have put up another mix with Chris up a bit more......as I look back perhaps we should have started with her in the first verse rather than me to give her voice the "lead".  Hmmmmmm....

I truly appreciate the assistance with this one.

I find this mix wonderful, and liked a lot the piano. Good decision! ::thumb::

@Mora Amaro La Loba ....thank you, Mora, for that second listen.

And thank you as well @Kellyanneg . We're glad that this song resonated with you like that. Thanks so much for listening.

This came up on my Soundcloud feed and while I have not been around here much of late, I thought I would just pop back to comment on this fine tune.

Which is actually another delightful track and really proves the both of you combine in such a sweet collaboration. That creative piano, then that heart rending guitar, and two such mature. lived-a-life voices, what more could a somewhat  older listener like me want?


Really lovely piece of work guys good on ya!  :ok:
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!
