Mike Zaneski production song lyric and melody by myself
I wrote the song one cold and miserable English morning to get miles away in my head from the gloom of winter

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13717273


Everfree

V

We'd set a course following the sun
Started to snow when our journey begun
Donated clothes and things we won't use
sailed free from bad news and attitudes

V
We'd food and water to last many days
guitar n' mandolin to pass time away
Renamed our boat the Lovely Abigail
she dipped raised and smiled as she sailed

C
Bound for an Island called Everfree
it's not on any chart, never will be
It's a secret Isle that nobody knows
magic Isle of Everfree with sands of silver and gold
V
Hoped to drop anchor by Christmas Day.
Abie gave me a card that she'd made 
Soft salty kisses as we danced on waves.
I'll remember that moment always
B
A thunder storm blew up in the night 
the sea was angry but come daylight
The sun appeared the ocean grew calm
as our Island came into sight, on that Christmas morn


Palm trees,fresh water, if we want fIsh for tea
theres enough for our needs out in the sea
We could build a home high in the trees
like the Swiss Family Robinson on Everfree
C

And it's Christmas Day and we're forever free_________

Hi you two.
Not my style but it's well produced and Mike did a fine job phrasing it.
Definitely one for the O'Donnell fans.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Love the fantasy lyric delivered with a very memorable melody.

The write, great vocals, backing tracks all work together really well to deliver the upbeat feel of the tune.

The mandolin is always a great choice for a song of this feel. The mix is light and airy as befits the tune,

Nice!!!!

Such a beautiful write Travis.
Line after line of real gems.... gotta love them "Soft salty kisses", eh?

Mike has done a masterful job here. I really like mixing of the vocal tracks.
The song has a cool overall pace and vibe.

No doubt this deserves to be on the radio. Content and production wise, it's as good as anything on the air.

all the best with it

I find writing songs as a get away to be very practical...... it saves on petro. smile

Travis,

I really liked where these lyrics were going when I saw them on the L3 Forum—glad you stuck with it. Mike, as usual, did an excellent job bringing this all to life. Not a surprise it’s getting some play (Congrats on that!!!). Beautiful write, play and listen. Well done, friends!

All the best,

Deej

Sweet write, Travis, made even sweeter by Mike's vocal and production. Nice!

The melody had me bobbing along on the waves. Very nice, gentle lyrics and a melody and production to match. I really enjoyed this.

Congrats on the airplay. What BBC program played it?

The title had me thinking of Yeats' poem "The Lake Isle of Innisfree." Similar theme of escaping from the humdrum world to an idyllic island. Did you draw inspiration from the poem?

Hi Gavin
It was played twice on BBC Radio Cumbria a programme called Introducing which gives unsigned under the radar singers/ writers an opportunity to go national.
Also played on Source Radio in Cornwall a smaller commercial station.
Yes i've heard this poem. Did'nt Bing Crosby have a 50s hit with the Isle of Innisfree?
Both totally different but thanks for your ears and comments

What a great melody and vibrant, happy-go-lucky groove. I really enjoyed the arrangement and the feel of this. It's a fine work!
