Let Your Guard Down

about

I started writing this track with an odd tuned dobro guitar and started experimenting with harmonics. Through out the writing process I was learning the recording program, Logic on my laptop and used this as a compositional tool. I spent many hours editing and recording, so much that I gave myself RSI in both of my arms and had to stop playing for years.
In time, I recovered, and finally got the song mixed in Rome, 2015 with Francesco Santalucia, with just enough time to pack my suitcase and rush to the airport to catch my plane back to Australia.

lyrics

Time. Time. Time. Time.
Some will say, lead the way, leading with resistance, leading with resistance
See your way, know you're great, find your own ambitions, cease your inhibitions

You know you gotta let your guard down
How will you let yourself begin
You know its not that hard to make a start, work for you
It's your time to shine

Question is, what to give
See it in their faces, seeded expectations
Just for them you've let yourself down
Had you thought just to pass on by
Hiding from your expectations
You know you gotta put a little time into yourself
It's your time to shine

You know you gotta let your guard down
How will you let yourself begin
You know its not that hard to make a start, work for you
You know you gotta let your guard down
How will you let yourself begin
You know its not that hard to make a start, work for you
It's your time to shine

Time. Time. Time. Time.
