Broadjam Member Reviews

Excellent guitar chording, and very tasteful lead guitar. The minimalist keys track was a great addition.
The instrumental and vocal tracks were mixed very well. Nice laidback folk-lite jazz vibe

    - Norb Studelska/Upper Air Disturbance

This is a hybrid of folk and pop, a la James Taylor. There's a lot of potential to take it further.

    - Sam Cooper


Music and Lyrics by: Bill Dake
Copyright; 2015 billdakemusic ASCAP

Lookin' left, steppin' right
Across the sunburned grass
And down a wooden flight
Of stairs worn smooth by a million soles
Searchin' for solitude

Finds a spot down by the water's edge
Under some pale green willows
Shakes his head
As he wonders if she's wondered
Where his life has led

They were two hearts entangled, two souls at play
Two kids plannin' for their Getaway

Not sure why he keeps relivin' that dance
It was along time ago
A cosmic circumstance
A brief sweet moment in a place called "Home"
Small town vision
With saltwater chromosomes

They found each other in a waking dream
Shared their secrets 'neath the evergreens
Promised "Love forever"
Like in a movie scene

They were
Two hearts entangled, two souls at play
Two kids plannin' for their Getaway
Two kids plannin' for their Getaway

But that's the past, it's gone
He knows he should let it lie
He can't bring it back
No matter how he tries
It's the past, it's gone

You see, she flew west
Over that slate-gray sea
To an island nest
His blue-eyed chickadee
Took her smiles
Took her harmonies
Still after all these years
And all those ups and downs
Sometimes the breeze
Brings her ghost around
Carries him off to that yesterday
Two kids plannin' for their Getaway
Plannin' for their Getaway
