    This Way Up view album


take a walk in the sun
a new day’s just begun here
with you dear

and try
let the voices subside
and the music inside you
will guide you and I

and the days will unfold like the pages
of a familiar book
passed on down through the ages

run together as one
we’ll write history
right here under the sun

and in time
by and by we’ll be fine then
take these dirty hands and
let love purify them

so come
take a walk in the sun
a new day’s just begun here
under the sun
it will be so much fun dear
under the sun

Liner Notes

This is THE take of the recording of the song off my album, “This Way Up”. The solos were recorded live as well, only a few overdubs including lead vocal were needed. The song was written by me in about 30 minutes.. I love when that happens! The arrangement and sound is a result of real players in a real studio with a real engineer playing together at the same time. What a concept!
