I'm actually late posting this because it's been released, but I was wondering what peeps thought and what they may have done differently. I have been away for a loooong time, I'm hoping to be back around more.

Dreams leave her
feeling unfulfilled.
They lie and,
she believes.

Sometimes she
feels cheated.
Giving out love she
never receives

She can't help herself
She's loves to love,
and longs for it back
Bouquets is all she gets
Bouquets and goodbyes
Flowers that have thorns
from men come and gone
Bouquets and goodbyes
Bouquets and goodbyes
Bouquets and goodbyes
Bouquets and goodbyes

She still hopes
someone is out there
Someone who
will love her too

This can't go
on forever.
No doubts allowed,
to make that true

She can't help herself
She's loves to love,
and longs for it back

Bouquets is all she gets
Bouquets and goodbyes
Flowers that have thorns
from men come and gone
Bouquets and goodbyes
Bouquets and goodbyes
Bouquets and goodbyes
Bouquets and goodbyes

She just knows her futures there
Beyond bouquets and goodbyes

That's a strong funky rock song - loaded with hooks and strong playing and singing. The words are a perfect fit.

Welcome home, James:

What a treat! So this is the "funky version... LOL? It'll sure pack the dance floor and is absolutely stunning. So good to see (and hear) you and your music back here at JPF. Thanks for "stopping in" and please, send more soon! ----Dave

Thank ya Mike, very appreciative of the listen and comment. My collaborators get all the credit imo, without them it's just words. They, and Christine are bringing it alive. I'm learning a lot watching how things are done.

Hi Dave! Thanks for the listen my friend and the kind comment. I think (I'll have to look) that there are 3 versions of the lyric, so it had to be differentiated smile I hope to be around more, my life is in flux mode at the moment and has been a couple years now. Regardless, I know this is where I get honest feedback from good people. I have 2 or 3 I would like to get opinions and suggestions on, but don't want to hog the forum. I hope to be around more without a doubt.

Great track! Love the funky sound, and these lines jumped out at me:
Flowers that have thorns
from men come and gone

-that's really nice

L. James,

Yup, this one is a keeper. Really like the vocal on this one—and the production is stellar. Those piano riffs laced in throughout work really well. Good luck with this one!

All the best,

Deej
