Broadjam Member Reviews

I like the Sultans of Swing type guitar work - very effective and fits with the song really well. Vocal reminds me a bit of Roger Whitaker. Chorus makes a nice contrast to the verses. And I love the message of the chorus/hook. And the end line is great.

    - Jamie Ambrose

I like the sound of the drums and how the keyboards sound in the mix, I also like the lead guitar and the lead vocals.

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
