There's a new world somewhere
They call The Promised Land
And I'll be there some day
If you will hold my hand
I still need you there beside me
No matter what I do
For I know I'll never find another you

There is always someone
For each of us they say
And you'll be my someone
For ever and a day
I could search the whole world over
Until my life is through
But I know I'll never find another you

It's a long, long journey
So stay by my side
When I walk through the storm
You'll be my guide ... be my guide

If they gave me a fortune
My treasure would be small
I could lose it all tomorrow
And never mind at all
But if I should lose your love, dear ...
I don't know what I'll do
For I know I'll never find another you

ABOUT THE SONG
Here's a little peek into the world of songwriting:
I was working on a new song for a week or so. It had a familiar feeling, yet I thought I was giving birth to a new song (it's a very similar process). After a while, I realized I was playing one of my revamped versions of some song from way in the past ... but couldn't figure out which one for a long time.
It was this song ... "I'll Never Find Another You" ...
taken to #4 on the american charts in 1965 by The Seekers.
Written by Tom Springfield (brother of Dusty Springfield).

I developed a fondness for it ... tossed it into a basic tracking session ...
then just held off for a while, not knowing quite what to do with it.

I went off on a little mini-vacation ... rented a house overlooking the ocean in Summerland, CA (near Santa Barbara) and set up a computer and keyboard facing the view. I spent days writing and editing music.
I wish I could do that all the time!
Well ... singer Jenny Marie came for visit ... heard the edited, overdubbed version I had just done ... and said 'I want to sing that!' So she did ... and beautifully. She has a very rich tone to her voice. Topped with incredible guitars from Tim Pierce, this song became quite lush.

An interesting note: This song seems to evoke religious feelings in many people. Perhaps it's the bridge part about 'when I walk through the storm you'll be my guide.' I think of it as a love song. Combined with my version of Exodus, more than one person has asked if all my music is spiritual. God!
