A new release from The Heart Chronicles (Two Love Stories in Three Acts)!
In Act One of The Heart Chronicles, a young man falls for an old flame who reappears in his life. (Two songs from Act One have already been released; see below!)
In Act Two, reality sets in and the promising relationship begins to fall apart. In this song, which appears halfway through Act Two, the young man finally realizes the relationship will never work out, in spite of good intentions on both sides.
I Thought I’d Found You (Act Two, Song #4)
Here are the two previous releases from The Heart Chronicles!
This Crazy Love (Act One, Song #2)
I Don’t Need Reasons for Loving You (Act One, Song #3)
A new track from the Basement Tapes collection!
This song is one of the earliest songs in this collection, written when I was 18. (The arrangement and recording were done several years later.) At the end of my freshman year in college, I was very interested in a young woman and wanted to spend some time with her after classes ended. Unfortunately, my father was traveling to a conference in the Smokey Mountains at that time, and he wanted me to go with him. My objections were overruled, and we flew south to the conference. I had plenty of time stewing in our hotel room in the mountains to capture my feelings in this song. (For what it’s worth, the young woman in question and I eventually became friends, and our friendship continues to this day!)
