@MichaelA

the problem with coming late to the party is everyone has already said what I wanted to say. At the risk of being redundant...I love these lyrics! Well done start to finish!

We begin
At once feel the ice on our skin
Through wild, wild waters
We must swim

We begin
And steel every bone, every limb
Through wild, wild waters
We must swim

Thanks @Mr Sydney , I don't expect you to be easily impressed by lyrics, given your own skill in that department, so I take this as a big compliment!  ::thumb::
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!

Yo Michael...great lyrics are great lyrics and these are just that. No-one knows the magic of how or when they come, but it's always exciting when they strike! Well done!

This is a really good song.  Great flow and nice build.  Shades of Simon and Garfunkel, love it. ::smiley::

Very nice melody with a lovely gentle arrangement. I enjoyed it, I would still bring the vocal down a little more though. ;D

Cheers @Knate, well I did like S&G of old, so that's a compliment in my eyes!  ;)

Thanks @LostBoy , and yes I have turned down the lead vocal volume on my own version for now.

Hi @MichaelA ,

I agree with @Mar T. and @Mark Luto this is one of my favorites from you - and as someone who is rarely writing positive songs I am all on your side ;-)

Very well done and I have nothing to complain :-)

Best,

Fabian

 Hi @MichaelA , I know I left you comments on your SoundCloud page and you know I like all your stuff, but i thought
 I would repeat them here. This has overtaken "Rock & Roll Heaven" for me, as my new favorite of yours.
 The melody in this one is just so strong and emotive. outstanding stuff....
 Dakoda

  oh and by the way , I'm hoping the rules of the positive song comp might be changed a little to make it a level playing field,
  by including a system like handicapping in golf , so miserable old blokes like you and me would have a headstart with say 25 points etc.
  well 24 for you and 25 for me, cos my songs are more miserable than yours ! ha! :-)
  I don't think I saw your name on the list of entrants for the latest song test , lease take this as my plea for you to enter ...
  please.

Just a final thank you to the last comment authors for very kind words -  @Lane, @DMsoundz and @Kristijonas .

And great idea @Dakoda on your 'misery' handicap suggestion - always thinking!  ;)

Yeah, I am entering the positive song competition btw. I decided to do that after realising 'positive' does not mean 'jolly' - so on that basis I will be fine!  ;D
