A bit of a love song. Reworked and redone by Smiley several times. The man is a genius. My favorite parts are the parts where he sings with me. Took some work to get him to do more of it than just on the chorus. He has a wonderful voice. I hope you enjoy this bit of fluff. No profound lyrics here, just a predictable love gone wrong song.

I second that Axel. Excellent collaboration you two. Love the strings in this, nostalgic bittersweet and all around wonderful.

"All our lives we'd heard "you'll be nothin."
We set out to prove we could be something.
Acting bad was better than feelin sad.
We vowed to start our lives again.
Billy's eyes made me believe...in dreams."

Those lyrics gave me the chills, boy oh boy can I relate to the lyrics in this song. The 'little tough guy' with the temporary tattoos pic somehow fits this perfectly. smiley Emotive from the heart music and lyrics, beautiful songwriting and performances.

Thank you very much for sharing this gem with the family, supremely well done.

@Axelbreeze these are my and Smiley's vocals. I have such crap recording equipment that he seems to be the only person who can clean up all the hiss and pops in them. Thanks for listening! Thanks for the compliments. @A1K3M1 the strings and music are all Smiley's doing. Glad you liked the lyrics. Took several rewrites, collaborating with Smiley to get them where they currently are. The little tough guy is my grandson. I don't have a photo of the "real" Billy on my computer. Thanks for listening and for the kind words. Much appreciated.

@livelargemusic, @Broken_Soul, @toveco thank you very much for the listen and the kind words. @Broken_Soul good to see you buddy. @toveco Smiley Geezer seems to have magic filters that are able to take my terrible recordings full of pops and buzzing and remove all that to let my voice come through. He did far more on this than I did. His voice is lovely and his collaboration on the lyrics, and his patience with me is to be commended. It was an honor and a great deal of fun to work with him.

He did a good job, but he could do som more job on the EQ on your voice, it's
A bit muddy, but I know, it's Not a easy task to do.

@pharmakeus thanks you for taking a listen. Your comments are always appreciated. @RubyDubidoux I have to agree that Smiley's vocals added a much needed balance and I feel gave the song a more personal feel.@Lagusaya2 thank you for listening and commenting kind man. @Smileygeezer thank you for doing such great work with what you had to work with. I am fairly sure I actually recorded these with the mic backwards. It has 2 different sides! You truly are a magic man.

@mfwmiles every good country song tells a story. That's a quote from Blake Shelton. But to tell one in a pop song...not so easy. Thanks for listening and for commenting on the build...Smiley worked hard on that.

Ditto on what everyone else have already said smiley I find myself wanting to here a slide guitar with a more country feel to the music for some reason, but I'm weird like that. Maybe it's because of the story telling... the older country singers were some of the best story tellers to me. Sorry so late you're usually one of the first on my songs.

@mre thank you for listening. I am as well as can be expected. I am truly amazed that so many people has said this is a touching song with a sincere performance. It was written, by me, not in a place of inspiration but rather a place of just wanting to write something. The music by Smiley is always coming from a place of inspiration. The words are contrived. Yes Billy is real and in my youth I did have a thing with him. He is alive and well and now a counselor for troubled youth. My performance hardly felt sincere, but perhaps at 2am everything sounds sincere. I should record at that time more often. LOL Hope you are well, too.

This reaches in, grabs hold, 'n doesn't let go. I thought this was gonna' be a reflection on love, 'n it is, but it's more loss than love. Dig the vocal styling on this... they're deceptive. Wonderful song. I wish at the end, though, when the music ends you'd finish it with "...in dreams". /shrug 8)>

@RazbaqueDirge good to see or hear from you! I thought about that ending, but decided that leaving it open ended made more sense. He'd make her believe...in dreams while alive. Once he died the believing stopped and reality set in...again. Bringing with it the loss of possibility and the guilt that she'd killed her own dreams. Something we all do at times. Yes this song is deeper than it seems to be. I am not surprised that you got that message. Thanks for listening and for commenting.

Damn, Luna! This really gave me pause.

It reminds me of that song "Remember (Walkin In the Sand" smiley or "Daddy, don't you walk so fast" or "Cats in the Cradle"...something along those lines. It's just SO emotional. It would seriously bring me to tears if i let it (too tough for that) smiley

Really, really GREAT!

This is an incredibly moving song. Luna you really have a talent for expressing feelings. I love the combo of your and Smiley's vocals. Tiny niggle on timing, you guys sounded so good, but periodically would be out of synch. Luna, your voice was just right for this, and so was Smileys, your expression and emotiveness (not a word?) was great.

Luna you really must get some better equipment so you can record your stuff in a way that you feel is great ( you said you have crappy stuff) You don't need to spend a fortune ... and people here would be happy to give you tips. You are a real talent and deserve more exposure.

@Weezbo I am at a loss for words. LOL That's a bad thing for me. Thank you so much for all your comments. Yes, the timing is a bit off but he didn't really want to do harmony and I liked the combination of vocals very much, so he did. But his heart wasn't in it. He is a great colab partner, just had a lot going on at the time. He also did all the mixing. I had no working knowledge of how to do that at all!
