Broadjam Member Reviews

Another great tune Jeff!! I love the way you write...very clever knack with lyrics, in a James Taylor kind of way! You words just play nicely on the ears! The track sounds great too...vocals, musicianship (fiddle is great), and production. Excellent!!

    - Greg Johnson

Sweetness! Perfectly placed instrumentation to support the calm and pleasant vocals. This thing is right on the money: vocals are top notch, performances are awesome and the production is the perfect icing on this cake. And good cake it is!

Modern Day Crooner

He's an old fashioned crooner, Gypsy souled baby boomer
He enlightened the day, with his words and his play
He made the wind blow
He described truth and rumors, for liberal hearts and late bloomers
He gave peace a chance, and he made us all dance
Just imagine

--Refrain 1--
If you could look through his mind,As the mysteries unwind
They said, "All that you need, Is love", "let it be"
You'd be an old fashioned dreamer, In a modern day dream
----------------------------
-Bridge-
Please don't wake me, if I'm dreaming once again
Of a world where love has yet to find the end
My friend
--------------------
He's a modern day singer, and his style's a dead ringer
For that guy we all know, that said so much more
In a Spanish pipedream
We're bound to repeat it, be taught maybe teach it
Till the mysteries have turned, into lessons we've learned
Just, take it easy

--Refrain 2--
Have you noticed the tone, of a voice all alone
When all you can hear is the heart and the fear
Of a modern day singer, from an old fashioned world
--Refrain 3--
You could tell from the start, that they sing from the heart
They've come back from hell, with stories to tell
How an old fashioned dreamer, lives in a modern day world
-Bridge-
Please don't wake me, if I'm dreaming once again
Of a world where love has yet to find the end
My friend
