I do love this song of yours ~ it is heartfelt & touches my heart perhaps I am wrong but, I can feel the perception...that you suffered a great loss in your life...a loved one whom you loved dearly...I feel this throughout the song...especially at the end...where you sing/say I love did bring tears to my eyes & a sadness to sing from the heart Gene....& J Rod was just the right back-up music ....if I have posted a comment before on this song....forgive my senior's old people get forgetful...please carry on with your talent.. your singing & you are indeed worthy

Great song DR & JR. Really like the laid back guitar and the vocals are a perfect match for the mood of the lyrics. Has a very 'today' vibe. Congrats.

Really like the guitar voicing within that finger pickin riff. Almost sounds like an alternate tuning. Really nice airy mix. Lyrics that many of us can relate to... 'i just can't seem to find the ground'... great line. peace, Brett

Hi Gene:

This is a very well done song. Beautiful lyrics, great guitar playing and I must say you have a very good voice.

"Sometimes I feel so lonely now, I just can't seem to find the ground" I really like that line.

My hats off to you and J.

I am glad we are becoming friends,

Sonic torture devices ? Oh fiddle faddle.. This song brought tears to my eyes. You give yourself far too little credit.. You have a very gentle tone in your voice. I can tell that you are singing from the heart. And the lyrics??? Oh my!! Those are Amazing... You have a Gift, that's for sure.. Let's not let it go to waste.. And Joseph did an Amazing job too.. I Absolutely Love this..

All The Best,
Linda (LP)

Gene, i think you are star mate, you really have a great voice, i was really taken back by this song, it was very heart felt. If you can move people like this with your singing, i definitely want you on my tracks......We must work together and make you more tracks to do : )

Good job mate, well done, great great track with Joseph....
