Broadjam Member Reviews

A nice production. Very traditional sound. The instrumentation is beautiful. Love the live tracks, violin, acoustic and electric guitars all are mixed well. The song blows up at :57 and turns into a beautifully orchestrated piece. A simple hook which leaves the listener singing it after the song is finished. That's the sign of a good songwriter. Very solid recording and performances from the musicians.

    - Dave Haddad (CenterPeace)

Nice ballad type song reminds me of the old genuine movies

Lyrics

Love is What You Leave
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 10/2014

I'm just the messenger in time I'll drop my seed
I take no prisoners, but love is what I leave
I work alone, so you never are
I am the music that's heard by your heart

You're just a traveler, you might arrive before you leave
Your destination's in your heart when you believe
Change yourself and you'll change the world
You are the vessel, the sail's been unfurled

---Chorus---
Love is what you leave
They said Love is all you need
I say Love is what you leave
Behind
-------------------------------------
You're at the crossroads, your destination seems to call
You take for granted, when you leave, you're going to fall
Until you turn, yourself 'round again
To see the road lies beyond your dead end

It's just a moment, but it's better than it was
A generation, with a prophecy of love
So love yourself, when nobody will
Climb that mountain, but stroll down that hill

--Repeat Chorus x2 --

I'm just the messenger, but hear me and believe
It make a difference, when
Love is what you leave...Behind
