Trying to get back to my roots

Looking For An Anchor
V1
I need to taste the sea
I need to taste the sea
I need to be in a place
Where I can taste the sea
And I've got to walk the shore
Looking for an anchor
Yeah, looking for an anchor

V2
I need to feel the breeze
I need to feel the breeze
It can almost bring me to my knees
When I feel the breeze
As I walk along the shore
Looking for an anchor X2

Chorus
There was something wrong
There was always something wrong
I I could feel it
Yes I could feel it
I always knew there was something wrong
There was always something wrong
I wasn't where I belonged no, no, no, no
I wasn't where I belonged
Now I've got to get back home
It's been way too long
Away too long

Solo (over chorus)

V3
I need to see the waves
I need to see the waves
I've got to hear that thundering sound
I need to see the pounding waves
As I walk along the shore
Looking for an anchor X2

B
I talked to my heart
Talked to my soul
Said it’s time for us to go
Back to the place
The only place
The only place
The only place we know


V4
Now I can taste the sea
And I can feel the breeze
And I hear the pounding waves
They were waiting there to set me free
As I walk along the shore
Looking for an anchor
As I walk along the shore
Looking for an anchor
Looking for an anchor
Looking for an anchor
Looking for an anchor
Looking for an anchor

Vnorth2,

Very nice! Loved the Bluesy/Pop vibe along with some great melody chord progressions--cool arrangement/expressive vocals too. No nits, for pitching, you might want to shorten it to at least 3:45. Song makes you want to get up and dance! Are you related to Vnorth1?

Thank you for your comments. They are most appreciated. Cutting this down for pitching shouldn't be too hard. This has a West Coast Swing feel to it. I used to be known on this site about 15 years ago as VNorth.

Hi Vnorth2
Welcome to JPF.
First thing it's a good idea to post the lyric with the link a read through before a listen is useful.
Great song and as Ed commented nothing to complain about at all
Good feel to it definitely a dancer,thanks for the listen
Regards
John

Great groove! Great sound! Lyrics seem to be a little contradictory though lol. Why are you looking for an anchor? wink

Thank you for your comments. I have been working with a fellow who owns an electronic studio in Berwick, Nova Scotia, for ten years. At age 73, it keeps me going. We've done 40 songs so far. H e is a big part of producing the sound and feel.

I'm not really looking for an anchor. I have lived most of my life next to a large body of water, The Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean and Lake Ontario. For some reason they were my anchors in my life. So the anchor is really a metaphor for something I need, almost to survive. When I have not been next to the water, there was always something wrong, something missing. One could then interpret the last verse to actually meaning looking for a real anchor because I am now back to what is important to me, allowing me to walk the shore looking for an anchor.
