Here's a new song I made with my very talented co-writer Geoff Matthews who made the lyrics to my music.

Wishing Well ( Lyrics: Geoff Mathews , Music : Steve Sledge , 12/2020)

VERSE 1
He’s coming home, he’s back again.
Seems so long he don’t know when.
Or if or how, he don’t know why.
The lights of the town will make him cry.

CHORUS
His girl is waiting now.
Down by the wishing well.
Telling everyone that it is true.
Down by the wishing well.
Where they would kiss and tell
Her soldier blue is coming home.

VERSE 2
He’s saddle sore and dreary eyed.
Thinking about the day he lied.
He told her they could settle down.
Another mile then he’s in town.

CHORUS
His girl is waiting now.
Down by the wishing well.
Telling everyone that it is true.
Down by the wishing well.
Where they would kiss and tell
Her soldier blue is coming home.

Bridge

He wouldn’t say.
She couldn’t know.
He loved her so much.
But he had to go.

CHORUS
His girl is waiting now.
Down by the wishing well.
Telling everyone that it is true.
Down by the wishing well.
Where they would kiss and tell
Her soldier blue is coming home.

Nicely done.
Did you do the vocals?

The recording mix is really good.

The lyrics kind of left me hanging, unless I missed something.
Did soldier blue make it home or not? Did he not intend to settle down with her?

The guy went off to war even though he told his girl they would settle down. He thought she would forget him, move on etc but he found out when he got home that he was wrong. Thanks Geoff Matthews

I've worked with Geoff on several projects and yes he is a very gifted lyricist.

This is wonderful....excellent vocalist and musical performances are top notch. Mix is pro all the way.

Well done, thanks for sharing.
