THE COLLECTOR


THEY CALL ME THE COLLECTOR
BEEN THAT WAY RIGHT FROM THE START
COS' I'LL FIND A LITTLE MEMORY
AND PUT IT RIGHT BESIDE MY HEART
WHEN THE SHOEBOX'S OVERFLOWING
I PUT IT ON THE SHELF
ONLY THEN I TAKE A GOOD LOOK
I TAKE ANOTHER GOOD LOOK AT MYSELF

BUT TODAY I'VE STOPPED COLLECTING
I'VE GOT EVERYTHING I NEED
WHILE THERE MAY BE RECOLLECTIONS
I FINALLY BELIEVE

THAT I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER
IN YOU AND YOU ALONE
COS' YOU LIVE IN THE PRESENT
AND I'M ABOUT TO CALL THAT HOME
WAS ALL THE TIME I WASTED
SAVING UP THE PAST
A LESSON THAT I HAD TO LEARN
OR JUST A REASON TO BE SAD

BUT TODAY I'VE STOPPED COLLECTING
I'VE GOT EVERYTHING I NEED
WHILE THERE MAY BE RECOLLECTIONS
I FINALLY BELIEVE
THAT NOW I'LL START THE LIVING I'VE ALWAYS LONGED TO LEAD
WITH PICTURES AND MEMENTOS JUST FADING MEMORIES

THEY CALL ME THE COLLECTOR




Beautiful song , beautiful lyrics , nice heartfelt song ,,....
i found myself playing guitar in my head along with the nice chord arrangement .
I love the simplicity of the recording .... simply captivating !
Great work !

I love this song. You had me from the first four lines.
I love the story you crafted in V1. The music was very good. I wanted more of a musical hook with highs and lows. And more contrast between the verse and chorus.

Cool song that could go into the country category, even as just a guitar/vocal recording.

Very introspective and well done song with a really good and smooth flow. Voice puts me to mind very much of Paul Simon.

This song is really great

Nice little ballad of just vocals and guitar. well sung/nice vocal , good lyrical theme. well performed and most important it sounds natural and real with good sound.

Wow - great song love everything about it

Tender love story with very pleasing vocal. Balance between voice and guitar was perfect, not too loud or over powering. Well done. I have enjoyed this nights work of reviewing and glad you were a part of it.
