My Path Has No Regrets

I wrote this song while out hiking some awesome trails in Zion National Park… gave me some excellent inspiration. I also tried some different stuff with the mixing and using my keyboard… so trying to push a few of my envelopes…

Here are the lyrics:

My Path Has No Regrets
© 2015 Colleen Dillon

Lost in this canyon
Sun upon my face
Thanking the stars above
That I’m in this human race

Staring down uncertainty
As though it don’t exist
Believing in the outcome
Is a path I can’t resist

Pausing for a moment here
To wait and catch my breath
I know that love is out there
And my path has no regrets

Pausing for a moment here
To wait and catch my breath
I know that love is out there
And my path has no regrets

It’s been tough to find that soul
Whose light shines clear for me
My path has been a winding road
And the signs I’ve yet to see

I know there’s someone looking still
For someone just like me
So let this sun warm my heart
And set our spirits free

Pausing for a moment here
To wait and catch my breath
I know that love is out there
And my path has no regrets

Pausing for a moment here
To wait and catch my breath
I know that love is out there
And my path has no regrets

I know that love is out there
And my path has no regrets

Colleen, thank you for your kind words. I count you as a part of what I like to think of as the Easy Folk gang, along with Greg Connor, Mark Imsdahl, Steve Krell, Terry Brown, Roger Harris, Ron Rouch, Big Time Operator, Paul Lennon, James Michael Taylor, and several other good people on AloneTone who have found their way into my heart and mind. AloneTone is huge, with literally HUNDREDS of member musicians. But if you go to the site's home page, click on "Artists" and then "dedicated listeners," you'll find me in 1st place. My other three profiles on AT are also on that first page. Add them all together and you will note that I take AT seriously, and I've come to know who out of the hundreds are particularly special artists to follow, not just for their talent but for their heart. There are some on AT who are mind-blowing musical geniuses, but who will never thank you for a comment and never play your music. Then there are those who may not be particularly awesome, but they'll play every song you post. As you may have heard, I'm not suppose to be in this world much longer -- I've already lived beyond my doctor's prediction -- and with what extra days I'm blessed I've been dedicating to AT as a listener. And when I go, all I have to leave the world is my music. I want people to play my music when I'm gone, as a way of keeping me alive. And I can't want that without lending my own ear to others while I'm here. But there's a lot of music on AT and only so many hours a day to play any of it. But I know who on AT appreciates the listen, and who doesn't care if I listen or what I think or even if I exist. So I dedicate my time and ear to those who do care. People like you. And when I find AT people who care, people like you, in my mind I add them to my Easy Folk gang. Welcome to the gang. It's a blast having you in the mix.

It actually reminds me of some of what I experienced when I got to visit the Serengeti! Cool music, lyrics, and vocals.
