Long for the Day (take 2)
Re-wrote this one after getting some songwriting advice from Jimmy Webb and Sammy Cahn. The original version is here. Also re-recorded it (MP3, 3MB - streaming version here) for a presentation to QUT. I think it's better but still has a way to go - got some feedback on phrasing that I'll build in for the next version.
Update: If you feel generous you can now buy the version of this song released on The Genre Benders' debut CD "I am leaving! I am leaving!" from iTunes, or GroupieTunes, or Payplay.FM. If you have a different favourite online store, search for it there and if it's not there, let me know so I can put it there.
LONG FOR THE DAY
Got a girl who thinks there's something special about me.
Got a dream that some day I'll be somebody special.
Oh Yeah! Said I -
How 'bout you? I know I -
Chorus x 3
