    Imagine (4 Young Lads)

    I wrote this song with 60s Rock in mind. The Beatles helped lead the way, so it has a strong wording that it is about The Beatles. But it is more about what was happening in the 60s.

    There must have been a billion girls
    Tears in their eye's crying out Pauls name
    Dad said the worlds gone crazy
    The news man said the kids have all gone insane
    Yeah - thats when the whole thing blossomed
    Sure did change those whorn out borring days
    Bulbs popping - camras rolling
    Life was young
    Rock N Roll had set a blaze

    Chorus

    Imagine four young lads
    Setting the world on fire
    Imagine a craze so mad
    Out of control with desire

    There must have been a billion guys
    Stars in their eye's playing out Johns songs
    Mom said their hair's so shabby
    The barber said that hair's just way to long
    Yeah - that's when the party started
    Felt like it was never gonna end
    Drums pounding guitar screaming
    Grass was green
    Peace and love had set a trend

    Repeat chorus

    Oh good times they never have to end
    You can visit any time you want - just bring your ears and your mind to attend

    Nice song, good sound of the era as well!
    What I was expecting (tip?) was some harmony vocals in the chorus. Especially with the Yeah Yeah Yeah part also. And the bridge didn't cut it for me, sounded a bit 'constructed' to my ears. But overall I love it!
