could have told you

things like this are never

built to last

never never

or very rarely ever

built to last

 

story in a magazine

makes headline news

never never

or very rarely ever

built to last

 

picture yourself on a walking holiday

picture the face that takes your breath away

so fine, so so fine,

smile seems to know

whats on your miind

 

picture an island big enough for two

picture a love made perfectly for you

so fine, so so fine,

lay me down forget

the sands of time

 

the sands of time

never built to last

              That solo was recorded first take, my pal Nick the bass player said to me as i entered the recording area 'Make them have it'. I shan't forget him saying that. Thank you Christina.

              Just read and listened to this after what we were discussing this morning.
              Great write, great song and great solo, you must get back into it and wipe the dust off of your saxophone.

                I am just about to start singing and playing in a blues outfit, I will of course be injecting an inch or two of jazz into the mix. Thanks for your positive comments sir.

                Soothing after at crazy night out, I truly felt this so many times but understand that everything last as long as it needs to. Like your saxophone player was there long enough to do this with you.
                Much peace and respect for all the talent involved in this amazing piece of art from the heart

                  Thanks Dan, the sax player was me by the way lol.

                  • Poetic Dan

                    Sorry the singer then, was a long day for me.

                    • dusk arising

                      Sadly most of the recordings from that era of acid jazz are awful but thanks for your comment and appreciation.

                      Contrast of beauty Vs. A dark view of life based in fact. Excellent job very moving.

                                  you got quite a few strings to that bow of yours aint'cha ... quite write too... amazing voice... I always wanted to learn the sax.. hats off to you ... .. Neville

                                  • dusk arising

                                    Too kind sir! Believe it or not that singer, who we all thought was great, only lasted with us for a couple of weeks, some girl had some sort of a pull on him and he just disappeared. Such a talent. Could have taken us to dizzy heights... but such is live.... so many could haves, would haves, maybes.
                                    Sax is easily self taught, i had one lesson about sax from a guitarist, i dont read music i just wanted to be able to play as fluently as i could whistle a tune. Nobody taught me how to whistle.

                                      amazing...
