Thanks Graham

I just finished re working it a bit to make the lyrics fit better. 

I think it is about as good as I'm able to do.

Feel free to take a shot at it - make any changes that you think it needs.
As you and all on chordie know, I'm a writer not a musician.

Thanks for the kind words

Jim     

Thanks Phill
Nah - never touch the stuff.
Just seen too much of it - and a friend had it happen to their son.

Lol about the singing -  there is no song easy for me to sing smile  !
I'm not sure this is a final version - when I sing it in my head it sounds nothing like those chords when I play it.  We'll see what happens - a work in progress.

Thanks for giving it a look

glad you saw through her !     

the perfect place By JimKenyon


[Am] I had a dream last night ,I needed [Em]shelter from a [Am]storm


[Am]I was searching for a place that could [Em]keep me safe and [Am]warm


[Dm]then a stranger appeared and gently looked upon my [Am]face


for a [Em]price she whispered , she'd take me to the perfect [Am]place


.




[Am]I saw myself drifting on a [Em]ship roaming an ageless [Am]sea


[Am]whitecaps all around and the [Em] wind blowing wild and [Am]free


[Dm]The stranger swore the trip would ease all my heart[Am]aches


for a [Em]price she whispered, she'd take me to the perfect [Am]place


.




chorus


she said [F] no more hopes and dreams would change to[Am] fears


no more [F]drowning every night on my pillow in my own[Am] tears


she posed[F]“would it be too much to ask to live without this [Am]pain ?”


but you've [Em]gotta give something up for everything you [Am]gain


.




[Am]I saw a faded orchard, where the [Em]wild honeysuckle [Am]grows



[Am] Sweetness hidden in shadows, and [Em]secrets that no one [Am]knows


[Dm]Then the stranger took me by the hand saying let me ease your [Am]cares


for a [Em]price she whispered, the perfect place answers all your [Am]prayers


.




[Am] I woke up wondering about the [Em]meaning of this strange, strange [Am]dream


[Am]the answer gets clearer when I [Em] stir my coffee with co[Am]deine


[Dm]I just keep pretending and waiting for the end of this living [Am]Hell


for a [Em]price she said, you can keep it secret, no need to[Am] tell





chorus


she said [F] no more hopes and dreams would change to[Am] fears


no more [F]drowning every night on my pillow in my own[Am] tears


she posed[F]“would it be too much to ask to live without this [Am]pain ?”


but you've [Em]gotta give something up for everything you [Am]gain




yeah, you've [Em]gotta give something up for everything you [Am]gain


yeah, you've [Em]gotta give something up for everything you [Am]gain

Man it sounds like you need some closure and healing.
Hope you find it soon, although the songs have been great !

Mojo- You have done it again - you always come through a classic line that just sticks in your head !
This is  another classic song by you!  perfect voice for this song - I always enjoy your songs.  I'm sure this resonates with many people.

Sad, but very nice song. Is there a reason it's only the music and no singing on soundcloud.  I thought the lyrics were well done

Did you play that stupid game where you spin for the discount ? I have played it everyday since you posted and never got a code for more than 10 % ( Which is ok)
I'm holding out for the 20%  - if I get that I would get this amp for $209   darn good deal I think - except - as I am reading many reviews  - loads of them say it has a huge annoyance in hum feedback because of improper grounding - a bad plug

Did you get that hum with yours ?

Very nicely done Boys ! 
Over the course of my life I've had two dogs as such - best friends and inseparable.  When the last one died it was like losing one of my kids - very hard.

Thanks for reminding me of all the great times I had with the dogs.

The video is great - I liked the pictures as weell as the music !

Avett Brothes are awesome.

They are scheduled to play 15 minutes from house next year if all goes well.
Can't wait.

Thanks for the reminder CG !!     

Here is a link to the song I wrote.

Wish my playing and singing were better. (:

Phill
I believe you can make any guitar sound great, much the same way Ann always makes you look good !  wink  smile


I remember my first guitar was a Cherry red Sqier Stratocaster.  It played good - I gave it to my neice a few years ago


Congrats on the 50th Phill

Sounds like a good ending to a  troubled life     

OK

I had more time this morning and made some changes as you will see. Re did some lyrics, changed chords, and re wrote title.

To me it plays much better and fits better.

(Phill- If you ever get a chance to give this a go I'd love to hear it. )
(Beamer- did you ever give it a go ?)
