Song Description

A modern folk song of a couple apart due to the need to find work elsewhere. Absent love and missing home is making the singer vow to get home soon and never leave again.

Story Behind the Song

The rhythm came first and then the melody. The lyrics are a dramatisation of a situation I was in at one point in an early career. I'm indebted to Junior Murrell for his help with the vocal production.

I enjoyed the visuals in the verses and the chorus is catchy. I could see this song being played in a reflective scene, or a montage. I liked the tone of the singer's voice. The music just whisked me away, floating on that harmonica. I could sit by a river in the summer and listen to this again and again. Drum hits are great. Nice job.

Sounds familiar in this genre and could use a female backing vocal to lift it out of solipsism. But this is good quality work and the arrangement and backing is very good. Vocal sounds a bit like Kenny Rogers!

Lyrics

Verse 1
I know it's been a while since we walked under the moon
I know how many times I've missed your smile
We've struggled and we've saved while I've worked so far away - so many miles

Verse 2
I wont forget that look when we finally realised
My going was the price we'd have to pay
We couldn't just pretend it wasn't going to end - so far away

Chorus
I'm going to take some time to think about
the love we have always known
Going to take some time
For the love I've left behind
Cos I'm so tired and so alone

I'm going take some time
Get a little peace of mind
Going to take some time before I roam again

Verse 3
The darkness of those hills is forever on my mind
The water rushing through after the rain
These thoughts when I'm alone make me dream of coming home - again

Chorus
I'm going to take some time to think about
the love we have always known
Going to take some time
For the love I've left behind
Cos I'm so tired and so alone

I'm going take some time
Get a little peace of mind
Going to take some time before I roam again

Bridge
The call of the valleys and the mountains above
The track leading up to our door
It's been calling me back
Time to strap on my pack and I'll be home, I'll be home once more


Chorus
I'm going to take some time to think about
the love we have always known
Going to take some time
For the love I've left behind
Cos I'm so tired and so alone

I'm going take some time
Get a little peace of mind
Going to take some time before I roam - may never leave again
