Yes -- the sound recording is poor, but the writing is good, I think :) This song was written for Jim Hampton, and Kristin Sell. You can listen to their music here:

Lyrics:
Another level
(The Ballad of Hampton Sell)

D/A7

(H) I knew I wanted you before I knew your name
(s) But then I thought that love was just some foolish game

Bm/F#

(S) You've helped to ease my pain
(S) Like sunshine through the rain
(S) You've opened up a brand new day...

A/A7
(H) So let me take me your hand
(H) Your wish is my command
(H) There's not a whole lot more to say- ooh-ooh...

So:

D, A7
(T) Let's chase the sun forever

D, DMaj7
(T) Our hearts will grow together

G A D D7
(H) Guided by the lord above

G A D
(H) And every single day
D7
(H) When I kneel down and pray

G A D D7
(H) I need to thank him for your love

G A D
(H) Yes, I need to thank him for your love

Bm/F#

(S) Now, we've both been here before
(S) So how can we be sure D/A7
(S) That this here love is gonna last?
(H) Let's try and love again
(H) As deeply as we can C
(H) And just forget about the past...

D/A7 middle eight
oooh, oooh-oo-ooh, ooh-oo-ooh ooh-oo-ooh

Bm/F#

(H) Throughout the coming years
(H) We'll conquer all our fears
(H) Of what is not and what should never be
(H) Just take a chance on me
(H) And I will make you see D/A7
(H) Mine's the kind of love that sets you free...

So:

D, A7
(T) Let's chase the sun together

D, DMaj7
(T) Our love will grow forever

G A D/D7
(S) Guided by the light within...

G A A7
(S) And when we're old and grey

D D7
(S) I'll just lean in and say
G A D D7
(T) "I think that I just fell in love with you again"
(T) "I think that I just fell in love with you again"
(T) "I think that I just fell in love with you Amen".......

Coda:

(T) We'll chase the sun together
(T) Our love will grow forever
(T) Guided by the lord above
(H) And every single day
(H) When I kneel down and pray
(H) I'll have to thank him for your love
(H) Yes, I'll have to thank him for your love

(Fade)

D, A7
(T) Let's chase the sun together

D, DMaj7
(T) Our love will grow forever

G A D/D7
(S) Guided by the light within...

G A A7
(S) And when we're old and grey

D D7
(S) I'll just lean in and say
G A D D7
(T) "I think that I just fell in love with you again"
(T) "I think that I just fell in love with you again"
(T) "I think that I just fell in love with you Amen"

Try working on keeping the pitch consistent on the entire duration of the note. Great use of vibrato.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, this recording is -- I forget the technical term 'crap' may be what they call it :D I like the song, which I wrote for some friends to sing (Country Artists I know). Anyway, thanks for listening.

Thanks! It's free -- inspired my Mr. Jim Croce, no less :) If you know who that is. I think this recording stinks -- check out some of my writing if you get the chance -- it's better quality, I think, and given your sick sense of humor, you might like "I told her"
