The pauses between the verses works really well.

Thanks for the listen and comments, Andrea.

I think many have experienced this urge at a turning point.
To keep going rather than go where you are supposed to go.
But we typically end up going where we are supposed to go.
But what if we didn't?

The pause at the end of the verses is a blues turnaround.
I explained it this way in post #3 above.
"I tried something interesting with the chord progression on this one.
It starts with the ii-V-I jazz standard and then changes to a pop vi-V
leading to a blues turnaround." (I-V-I-V)

PS -- The Roman numerals refer to the corresponding chords in the Major scale.
I-ii-iii-IV-V-vi-vii -- The one, four and five intervals are major chords.
