Rising high the clouds above the city
As the sun breaks though
Burns my skin
As we sit so pretty
In a world that's new
There's you

We paint the sky, gold and white and blue
Splash the world with light
Burning bright
There's something's on my mind
An image of you

Electric dreams
Not always what they seem
They can lead us away, astray

This song reminds me of being on a beach, somewhere lovely and warm on a holiday and having a great time! Super vacation vibe!

The swinging groove works perfectly together with the lyrics and melody and supports the feeling of easy floating. The recording and mixing quality are very professional - I can hear all instruments and still they blend together well. Excellent woodwind background and fills. The many instruments you use (two guitars, piano, drums, bass, etc.) play together great without stepping on each others feet.

Beautiful Bossa. Singer sounds great. Beautiful vocal hook throughout with subtle horn arrangement. Very warm sounding recording as well.

Beautiful smooth track that kept my interest as everything is very tasteful and relaxing. The verses have a really laid back feel and the instrumentation is on point. I just love the horns. (no offense to the other participants)

I like Latin rhythms and this one is cruisy and relaxing. Great instrumentation, loved the trumpet and this lady has a voice that's easy to listen to and great for this style of music.

Very nice vocal ! Song arrangement is so nice....specially on piano and horn section. Feel like listen to soft rock/pop music of early '70s such as A&M pop (Claudine Longet) or British lounge pop such as Swing Out Sister/Everything But The Girl.
I like this music so much !

Very nice recording, I especially love the vocal sound. Outstanding singer and performance. I enjoy the accompaniment very much. Great use of the horn section, love the arrangement. Very strong song, full of sweet harmonies, cool accompaniment and a great hook.

Cool! Love the vocals. The song has a nice flowing pocket to it! Mix is excellent! keep 'em coming! Very catchy hook line!
