Travis sent me his original lyric to work on.
Slotted in a few lines here and there.
E.G. The middle part of the chorus. Also 3rd line in verse two was originally "shouldn't be breeding".
Which I changed to "no sense or feeling"

Not sure if the title should be as is or "What money can't buy".

We welcome your observations.

Thanks to Vic for all his work on this and his patience.
When our kids were little it was so good to take them away into the countryside or up to Lakeland to get a way from it all, in our battered old camper van. This inspired the lyric
Regards
John

To me Travis and Vic, there seems to be almost a historical presence in this song,
almost a sad reflection. I think that it might be the way its written and performed,
very nice job Vic always liked your vocals, nothing wrong with the writing end in this, to me.

Hi Lane.
As a kid I was often escaping to the mountains and river areas so Travis's lyric rang true for me. Thanks for your comments.

Vic and Travis,

I liked the tune a lot. Nicely put together, Vic, with some deft production touches. Like the balance and reserve on the vocal harmonies. Sweet tune!

Hope you are both well!

We were unsure of the title but personally I liked Mountains. It conjures up a peaceful setting, a retreat.

Wasn't sure at the start but it grows on you faster than measles. I agree there is a certain sadness to this but it somehow adds rather thyan subtracts to the whole feel of this song. Congratulations to you both. :-)

WONDERFUL Collab!!

Love the first verse and chorus and the title works for me, I love what this says and the slow, thoughtful pace allows the listener to hear every word and relate to it. Great production on it, I really enjoyed this one!!
