Thanks Sunset , this came about on a fan club site where several fans including myself would post song titles and we each would write a set of lyrics. I wrote this in the bathroom where I used to work. The boss man even came in looking for me...LOL I had a finger picking melody worked up for quite a while but no lyrics. When I got home to make a rough take they seemed to match.

That's good! Very pleasant overall, light years better than so many songs you can hear on the net from songwriters.

Hey chester - good song and I love that finger-pickin.
\Don't really get the hook though - maybe post the lyrics?
I'm likely missing something in the lyrics..

Enjoyed the listen smile

Thanks for the listen here are the lyrics, basically it's a man knocking on one side of a door and a woman on the other side I estimated that to be 3 feet and 3 just seemed to sing better. Glad you enjoyed.

*3 Feet Away*

I walked a thousand miles to nowhere in someone else's shoes
Chasing down dreams and loosing you
What goes around has come around and now I'm back for all to see
Hoping no one notices I lost the heart inside of me

And I’m just three feet away

I love gazing in your eyes and the feel of your skin
My heart could find itself once more if you just let me in
I've known it all the time but I’m learning it these days
Everything I want in life lies just 3 feet away

3 feet away
Just 3 feet away

I've known it all the time but I’m learning it these days
Everything I want in life lies just 3 feet away

Now I'm back here on your door step all meek like a little lamb
Praying for forgiveness, and longing for your hand
You can't undo the things ya’ done but you can start to forget
Don't leave me out here drowning in my ocean of regret

When I’m just 3 feet away
Oh I’m 3 feet away

Known it all the time but I’m learning it these days
Everything I want in life lies just 3 feet away

Just 3 feet away
Just 3 feet away

I really enjoyed this. The hook is great, although I didn't get the talking through the door bit until the last verse and even then didn't relate it to the previous verses. I thought the letting me in idea was metaphorical. In fact, in the second verse, I thought they were in bed, especially with the use of the word "lies." This struck me as odd, since 3 feet is a bit far in that situation smile You might avoid that by changing "lies" to "stands."

Great sound, performance and melody.

Hi Chester,
Your song sounds like clear water in a little river with some meanders well drawn.
Let us the flow take us...
