This is a tribute to a friend that died far to young. He wrote, sang and played bass on this. It was recorded in the mid 80's. He is missed every day. the song is The Next Time I Die

Thanks for sharing. I listened reverently and respected your loss. :cry:

As for the song, it is a fitting work of art & remembrance. Good.

But for the general populace, I'd do it with a little less emotion? You're fine, but that's IMO as one who has written at least two deceased person's tributes.

Sincerely or truthfully, I think of "Tears in Heaven", how it came out in a matter-of-fact form, and to commercial success.

All the best, use the song as you wish to honor your friend and soothe yourself, as well as a work of art.

I'm sure that everyone appreciates it. Commendations for the worthwhile commemorative creation.

Like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

Like the composition. Nice 80's guitar tone, which doesn't happen too often.
