    Here's a recent song of mine I wrote. Hope you mates like it.
    I also tried a minor composition and recorded it. Here's the Audio:

    Days That Were

    Sometimes I long for days that were
    Filled with simple things we used to do
    Staying up at night, singing with glee
    Songs that taught us all a thing or two

    Granny would play her old violin
    Mama, she sure could keep a beat
    While us kids clapped to the tune
    To that melody, oh so sweet

    Growing up in old familiar lanes
    Oh, through the seasons – without a care
    Sometimes I look back and feel so strange
    May be I’m just a child still living there

    Friends, I had a few I’d call my own
    But now it’s all a faded memory
    Lost in photographs from long ago
    If it were mine, I know just where I’d be

    Back in those old familiar lanes
    Searching for the faces from my past
    May be sing a song that I once knew
    That’s the place where dreams forever last

    So I sit, oh wishing all the while
    For the days that were and will be
    A part of my very heart and soul
    Oh, my friend, a part of you and me
    Those were the days, yes they were.
