Story behind the song
I wrote the melody many years ago as a young teenager. Although the original lyrics were never good, the melody persisted over time. We're glad to have a chance to breathe new life into this tune and offer it as a ray hope in difficult times. SD..great composition..really liked everything about it, including the production and your vocal. The bridge is well engineered and introduces some unexpected changes, keeping the listeners attention. You kept the lyric message going very nicely, developing it out with each verse...good job! You also chose a style and rhythm pattern that actually simulates, to my ear, moving along the water. Excellent contribution!--Tano Music
