Here's "Don't Be Afraid", an original progressive rock song. This final version is hot off the presses today. Vocals by me. I think this is my best ever piece of work, and am very happy with it. Hopefully I will go on to do more songs with the same musicians I did this with.

also on soundcloud:

The soundcloud version is higher quality (and you can download it from there as mp3). I posted both as people sometimes find one or the other problematic.

If you don't want to stick with it for the whole 6'30 (please try - it's worth it!), then don't miss my efforts from 4'17 - 5'50, as it took a lot of work. LOL!

Don't Be Afraid

(v1)

Winds like to blow late at night

They have nothing else to do

Just reach out and feel me

I’m here with you

(v2)

If you fear tomorrow will come

And you’re not prepared

Just reach out and feel me

You know I’ll be there

(chorus)

Sometimes the shadows

Move about as if they have a purpose

Like they want to block our todays

But don’t be afraid

Stay close to me

Come the dawn they will fade

(v3)

Let the night own the darkness

Hiding in its shrouded domain

Listen to our heart beats

And forget the pain

(v4)

When the sun rises in my eyes

There’s a shelter secure

You can always feel safe

Of that you can be sure

(chorus)

(bridge)

Whenever you find it necessary

Please use me as your sanctuary

My walls are tall and strong

And you know it’s where you belong

Na Na Na Na ...

Sometimes the shadows

Move about as if they have a purpose

Like they want to block our todays

But don’t be afraid

This is where ELP would be if they had stayed in the game. And I can get away with that because of the similarity of your voice to that of Greg Lake.

Life's unfair, live with it.

Good stuff, George. 'Bout time for you to be releasin' an album, don'tcha think?
