NOW AND THEN I CHANCE TO SEE A FRIEND OF YEARS GONE PAST
"DO YOU REMEMBER DANIEL?" ONE OF US WILL ASK
THEY PLACED HIM NEAR A MEADOW, THAT WAS YEARS AGO
STILL I THINK ABOUT HIM AND HOW HE LOVED HER SO

(INSTRUMENTAL)

HE MET HER AT A DANCE HALL, DIDN'T THINK HE HAD A CHANCE
BUT HE HUNG AROUND FOR HOURS JUST TO ASK HER FOR THAT DANCE
THOSE WERE SWEET MEM'RIES, AS FRESH AS HONEYCOMB
THERE'S SADNESS NOW UPON HIS LIPS AS HE CALLS HER NAME OUT LOW

DANIEL, DON'T GRIEVE NOW
FOR THOSE MEM'RIES FAR AWAY
YOU'VE FOUND YOUR FINAL RESTING PLACE
FIND SOME PEACE TODAY
BUT EVEN NOW I HEAR A SOUND
COME SOFTLY FROM THE GLEN
A SONG OF LOVE YOU HAD FOR HER
AND WHAT THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN

BRIDGE
ONE NIGHT SHE HAD A FEVER, BUT HELP CAME TOO LATE
HE TOOK HER HAND TO HIS FACE AND SOFTLY CALLED HER NAME
NO ONE KNOWS THE FUTURE OR THE BITTER WINDS THAT BLOW
YOUR ONLY LOVE SLIPPED AWAY, NEVERMORE TO HOLD HER CLOSE

DANIEL, DON'T GRIEVE NOW
FOR THOSE MEM'RIES FAR AWAY
YOU'VE FOUND YOUR FINAL RESTING PLACE
FIND SOME PEACE TODAY
BUT EVEN NOW I HEAR A SOUND
COME SOFTLY FROM THE GLEN
A SONG OF LOVE YOU HAD FOR HER
AND WHAT THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN

FOR THOSE MEM'RIES FAR AWAY
FIND SOME PEACE TODAY
BUT EVEN NOW I HEAR A SOUND
COME SOFTLY FROM THE GLEN
A SONG OF LOVE YOU HAD FOR HER
AND WHAT THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN

You could sing anything

Very well performed and instrumented and gut-wrenching piece. Pleasing vocals and very nice arrangement. Really a top-notch song.

Cool songwriting! The recording is nicely produced...strong vocals and instrumentation. Good job!

WOW, what a powerful song!!! The story, arrangement, vocal and mix all work to build the song. Vocal is beautiful, and arrangement sounds totally pro. AWESOME!!!

Great sound overall good luck

music fits the lyrics. Vocals are a good match for feel .Tone quality is good. Instrumentation fits the song. A thoughtful song to chat with a friend and remember a loved one

Wow! Great job. This song is one of those songs that touches emotions.

Great song, Production is excellent , love the understated vocal, fits the song perfectly ! Nice sentiment throughout.

A truly beautiful song, very cleverly arranged and produced in a distinctive but simple manner. The song has a genuine haunting quality which is enhanced by thoughtful and high quality instrumentation, used sparingly but very effectively. The husky/whispered vocal is both engaging and perfect for the song. Altogether an extremely high quality song which you would be hard pressed to better in any way. It actually made me cry.
Congratulations on a great track.

Had me from the beginning. A great voice & the quietness of the instrument is very different & attention getting!! A heartfelt message!

I like the mood of this song. Gentle and constant like a running stream. Good sentiment in the lyrics. Found the subject matter personal - I had a friend who died many years ago ...
Instrumentation is good and each compliments the other.
Very nice vocal performance - good feeling.
All over a very good song and great to listen to.

I loved the tenderness of your voice when it started, what a nice sweet introduction to the song.I liked the song and lyrics it was very touching.You are a great singer.

I like the lead vocals and how they sound in your face, the piano and drums really sound good as well.

Very sentimental feel. The instrumentation is very subtle and effective. The vocals sound very intimate and nice. The groove is very nice, with the drums low and tight. Love the slide guitar.

Vocalist reminds me of the singer from the fray straight away which is a very good thing. The production here is excellent sounds very polished and professional. Lead guitar, piano, vocals and percussion work very well together. Chorus is very, very strong. Lyrics, melody and rhythm of the vocals are so good in the chorus. Especially "even now I hear a sound" line, it's top notch.

Great Feel in this song. Sounds like its coming from the heart. Instrumentation is nice ,compliments the hook very well.
All in all Great Job!!
