The future is for those who believe

One can ask, believe in what? Possibly the future in itself.

The quote is from Eleanor Roosevelt, and the idea for this track when a comrade of a band I used to play in, sent me some audio of his singing. I threw it in a sampler, mixed and mashed it up a bit, annd played along with midi, bonga's and guitar.

the future
the future
is for those who believe
but you can see them in my eyes

in the beauty of their dream
my ancestors long ago.

Love it.
Talking about compact writing.
The name of the song is 70% of the lyrics. What a great find!
Nice guitar piece...., ahhhhh,what's not to be loved.
Kind regards, Gus

Enjoyed that @oorlab i admire the great variety of music you produce.

This one feels casual, real, friends making music. Eclectic group of instruments with everyone respecting the mood and leaving plenty of space.  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

@oorlab A song very typical of you. It sounds as if it's a trial for a future that is still looking for a match, this is both for the repetition of the quote as for the musical build-up. The guitar works quite well, and some of the patterns reminded me a bit of Dire Straights, although the solo itself definitely has its own identity. .
