?Chasing Down a Dream?

There?s a world that rests uncomfortably
Inside me every day
Desire to pursue my dreams
Doubts get in the way

I?m walking in circles
Its wasted energy
Questioning my purpose
When maybe I should be

Chasing down a dream
Standing up to me
Searching for the life
That is my destiny
Well I?m Chasing down a dream
Its everything to me
If I crash and burn
I?ll still believe

I feel my soul is reaching out
Its time to make a change
Im tired of regret and Im
Tired of the way

I?m walking in circles
Its wasted energy
Questioning my purpose
When maybe I should be


Really well put-together song. Arrangement great. Lead guitar really kicks ass. Good luck.

Great song with several brilliant elements. First of all the "Chasing down a dream..." chorus really was spectacular each time around. In those parts the song became Technicolor. Liked the guitar chording and solo, a lot. Solo had great smooth and sophisticated attitude and those high notes really sung out.

Great arrangement. Classical rock guitar sounds great. Band is tight. Vocals tone good, nice and warm. Sound's very 80's pop. Would be a great track for a movie.
