A great, comfortable song... like you are sitting there hearing a story told (and told well!) Smooth instrumentation and perfectly harmonized vocals, with almost a nostalgic sound to it the is reminiscent of some incredible years in music. Great song here.

    - Billy Pilgrim

Thoughtful song that tells an interesting story with evocative imagery. We can imagine Suzy and therefore we can feel for her to some degree. Can't help remembering Donovan's 'Young Girl Blues' (English singer from 60's). Musically, it has interesting moments.

    - John du Feu

susie's gone back on the road,she's spent and her heart is feeling cold, she's worn and tired and just can't walk any more, she left her home a year ago,her heart was glad but now she knows, she's all alone upon the city's floor chorus susie where are you going to?what are you running from? you'll blind your pretty eyes by looking at the sun susie where are you going to?what are you running from? you,ll blind your pretty eyes by looking at the sun take a trip on a rainbowed ship,she's living in her mind and if she watches she can see both sun and moon drifting around from door to door,she can't find what she's looking for,it's love she needs to find to bring her home. chorus downtown streets are cold and dark,home is a box in a city park, she's moving on again ,no ties to bind, times are hard and friends are few,but some are real ,some are true, the love you find is all inside your mind, chorus chorus
