    Lovely melody and lyrics. It is a reminder of those halcyon days of raging hormones, desires and infatuations now a distant memory. On looking back they were mirages and illusions. Natures way to procreate and continue the human race. Sounds rather clinical but its true!!
    As for the song - it is beautifully sung and I enjoyed it very much.

  3. Hi Speedy,
    To do justice to your efforts, I listened to this using my noise canceling Bose headphones and it sounded lovely. I don't know anything about your and ND's raging hormones, but the feeling I got was that of longing and perhaps sadness. It seemed very professionally done, so keep doing it, Speedy.
    Good luck, Srianee

      I take your point. We were unable to see the beautiful thoughts and images created by the poetic lyrics.
      It is our youthful desires raising its ugly head again. The passage of years and the sophistication of a professional life doesn't seem to have suppressed our lust and sensuality.

  4. PLEASE DO NOT WAKE ME UP....... I am in a wonderful 'dream world' right now......let it continue for EVER MORE....TO .ETERNITY!!!

    Mahen,
    This song so well rendered brought back a NIGHTMARE....... dead since Friday, the 13th March 1970 & buried on IDES OF MARCH 1970....for 45 years!!!
    Once again you have done it. Keep it up. ----- Razaque

    1. Mahen,
      You indeed 're-kindled' memories-- with or without a Kindle!!. I do not hold it against you!!
      By the way how is your 'dodgy belly' -- should have had a 'Vindaloo' that would have given you a 'damned good' LOUD ---- 'WIND-IN-THE LOO' & a 'Pyroplastic Flow'---- with or without a "PORROPPAY" --- had you taken heed of my 'advice'!!!
