Light Hearted Latin Jazzy Reggae Pop

Sunset on Clearwater Beach

I once lived briefly in a house in Mukilteo that looked out over the Puget sound. It had absolutely no furniture except an easy chair that came with the rental. One morning as I looked out at the overcast and rainy day sitting in that ugly chair I picked up my guitar and penned the song. I had heard a lady in the grocery store say "She had too many faces." That is what gave me the initial idea for the song. Papa G

Faces

Gray day drift away like the wind across the sound
Lost in an easy chair got my feet up off the ground
I can hear the dryer tumbling the clothes
The thoughts roll round my mind and I wonder if it shows
Am I the only one who knows
There's too many faces placed upon the past
Too many traces of a love that didn't last

I wonder why it is we see so clear when we look behind
If I saw myself right here would I like what I might find
I can hear the traffic splashing through the rain
I can't keep from laughing when I'm seeing through the games
Still I can't deny the pain

Of too many faces placed upon the past
Too many traces of a love that didn't last

Make it on our own
That's the modern code
If you're living loveless
Remember you've been told
First you're young and then you're old

There's too many faces placed upon the past
Too many traces of a love that didn't last

I will hold the memories near me
I will take them to my heart
And try to keep on caring
Loving is an art
I can hear the fire crackling as it burns
When love leaves one behind tell me
Who's the one who learns
Watch love as it turns

To too many faces lovers from the past
Too many traces of a love that didn't last
There's too many faces, too many traces
Too many faces, faces, faces

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person
Deviation from this formula may require attorneys and therapy
