I like the melody and reflective theme. IMO, I think you could offer a hint of background story rather than the two metaphors together. I get the "mountains high" but not crazy about the "blue sky" line. It rhymes, but I think the first metaphor makes a great statement that needs "modified" with a hint of story, rather than just rhymed. There's not much other opportunity otherwise. "Story," even though perhaps fragmented, creates interest and listener ability to relate to your song's expression etc. Keep or sweep.

Nice work, I enjoyed your write!


Hey thanks Eddie..........The whole "..Mountains high against the vast blue sky?" is just another way of saying who makes mountains out of mole hills?" I appreciate the comments, and thanks soooo much for listening. Have a great Thanksgiving!!

I would have went with "What Kind of Man Am I?" as the title/hook
and leave the "fool" bit out but what do I know? Anyway? smile
Enjoyed the listen

Hi Paul....I hear ya, but "Once" was the bell ringer for me....."Once" is not the obvious choice, but it's the one that seemed too compelling to pass up. And as far as "fool"................that word embodies the selfish actions of the singer / performer.
Happy Thanksgiving, Paul........and thanks soooooo much for your listening and comments!!

Sad Tom but a fine folk song in the best tradition
