Another collaboration with Liz @kahlo2013
Lyrics by Liz - tune by me.
I was worried this might sound clichéd as the verses use the classic I-VI-IV-V pattern, but Liz told me to go ahead anyway. I hope the use of dynamics in the verses helps overcome that potential "overused" feeling about the chord sequence.
The instrument used is an excellent "Pixie" Sopranino Ukulele (the only playable one I have ever found) made by Welsh Luthier John Daniel.
(F) This time last year - (Dm) walking in the sand
For(Bb)giving time passed - (C) slowly we began
(F) Feeling older then - (Dm) taking deep breaths in
(Bb) Finding common truths that (C) time transcends
They (Bb) say to make new friends
(F) but to keep the old
(C) Know that I am grateful
to (Bb) treasure the (F) gold
(F) This time last year (Dm) sitting on green bluffs
(Bb) Watching silver clouds - making (C) room for sun
(F) Listening to the wind (Dm) writing our new song
(Bb) Thinking of changes - (C) moments now gone
(F) This time last year (Dm) dining by the beach
(Bb) Drinking to old days - (C) toasting new dreams
(F) Sharing some laughter - (Dm) watching the sunset
(Bb) Looking in your eyes (C) without regrets
