Sages

     Sages is another riff based song that I wrote many years back. The acoustic guitar part is what I wrote first in Am. The pre-chorus (Bm) was written on the piano a few years later. The chorus was written a few years after that...kind of a mixed bag but each period of writing was in relation to the same song so it ended up sounding cohesive....I think....maybe? 

     I play acoustic guitar, synth and sing lead and harmony vocals. Jack plays lead acoustic and electric. Dave T is on drums and Devon S is on bass.

In the night I see people passing and gone

Their dreams no different than mine

They seem to be what all hopes rested on
