I wrote this song many, many years ago, when the band Asia was in their heyday. I had noticed their lead singer and songwriter, John Wetton, had a rather formulaic style of structuring their songs, so I emulated that when I put this song together. The chorus actually came to me before ever picking up an instrument, so I had to work to figure out how to play and arrange this song.

This track is slightly more keyboard-oriented, but back when I wrote the song, I didn't have access to decents keys or recording equipment. I had put together a few demos on reel-to-reel and cassette, but the song just didn't sound the way I wanted it to. Now with the software available for home recording, I decided to revisit this song and I think it came out okay. There's not a lot of guitar, although there's a solo and some fills. Of course, this song would benefit greatly from having John Wetton sing it, but for now, y'all will have to endure my singing. :whistling

Would appreciate any comments and/or suggestions ...

I liked the tones on the guitars, very clean and articulate.
Appreciate all the encouraging words from everyone and I'm glad that to get the comment about the tones. I tweaked quite a while to get that sound out of my J-Station and it took several takes to capture an adequate performance.
