All our yesterdays
*

This song is not in a battle


A slight departure (although still played on acoustic).
I added drums and bass to this one, which was recorded some time back but remastered today in Cubase 5
A song that was inspired by the passage of time and how your life changes accordingly.

All our yesterdays (lyrics)
Young man walking down a straight and narrow street
Leaves his troubles far behind
Doesn't think about what he will do or who he'll meet
Not a lot going on in his mind

Older now and there's a smiles on his face
Been around the block, the girls he's seen
He's got his life, his wife, and a nice place
Living in his suburban dream

[Ch]
All our yesterdays maybe far away
Sum of the parts that make us who we are
All our yesterdays, our yesterdays
All the good times and every battle scar

Middle aged man, not quite the perfect life
Counts the monkeys on his back
Is he kind to his kids, did he cheat on his wife
Did the train he's on come off the track (for a while)

[Ch]

[Bridge]
He read the book, sang the song
Played the game, sometimes tagged along
With his rose tinted glasses on
It all looks good, it all looks fun
He finds the strength so he can carry on.

Old boy now reflects upon the path he chose
Smiles at the old girl by his side
Well it all worked out for him though how, heaven knows
Family spread out far and wide

[Ch]

I am really digging the bridge, it’s a very pleasant change-up. I am really digging the presentation of the rhythm guitar as a whole. The depth to the lyrics is a little beyond me, I’m too young to understand :P. I'm just playin', this is wonderfully done. The subtle nature of the drums is what sells it for me. It is just enough to give us a sense of attitude.

The text is like a condension of a man´s life, compressed into the form of these lyrics. Wonderful.
Song structure´s also well built.
But it seems you added drums and bass too shyly, too cautiously. Bring it up in the arrangement and mix ´em
more emancipated.

Hi Jim
U DEfinitely carved a niche sound here on the amp!!!!
Clear pure songwriting .......... love it as u know
love it but.....doh ....

as its ''reflective'' .... perhaps try much slower tempo
think that would would work and get audience ino your fist??
deliver a think ''BOMB''
sounds like rushed thoughts ...
spend time delivering lovely lyric

just a thought??
