Chet Nichols Creative Ser.-Magic Garage Music Division (ASCAP) :

Verse 1
If you find you're judging
All your loves by me
You're not free
You can live your own life
Between the mountains and the sea
But, if you dream I'll be there
You're not free

Cause you kept playing Jezebel
And I tried playing the cure
Both caught in a fantasy
That wasn't real anymore
Yeah, cause you say that I brought you down
When I only wanted you to win
And now it's up to you to see it thru
And learn to start again Jezebel
Start again, Jezebel

Verse 2
Separate vacations
Business trips
Long lovely girls with shapely hips
Separate relations
Dinners alone
A long distance relation we've outgrown


Musical Bridge

I really like this piece. It reminds me so much of something Sting would do. Very nice tempo with a light latín feel to it. Very relaxing piece that I can listen to over and over again. Instrumentation is good and vocals are good. Good job on this piece.

Not a bad song. Wrong genre.

I like the bossa nova feel and the instrumentation in this song! The harmonica melody was a nice touch as well. I'm not really a lyricist, but I do look for some kind of story in the song, which you have. It's also well recorded and mixed, and there's a good balance to the instrumentation. The vocal reminds me of Boz Scaggs or someone similar.

The vocals are really good, the recording is also very good. The harmonica part was nice. The lyrics are really touching. The changes are really good. The instrumentation was right on.

I like your voice a lot, and your lyrics are evocative and intelligent.

The instrumental backing is well-played, in tune, and the production is clear.

Nice harp playing!

Your singing has a compelling, emotional quality to it, which really took the song over the top.

shades of Gilberto/Jobim with just the right touch of Toots Theilmans/Stevie Wonder on the harp. very intriguing and engaging track from beginning to end. after this first listening, I will come back for more. CHEERS!

Great song!! Nice vocals and lyrics. Great recording techniques. I can tell you are a seasoned professional.

Very clean recording. Great feel, great vocals. Great recording techniques.
