Liner Notes: 

This was a fun topic and I knew immediately what I wanted to do - all through lockdown I've been making mental lists of places to go after all this is over.

Lyrics: 

These four walls close in some days –
when will this end?
I stay up all night with a hamster-wheel head
my hands ever empty
my eyes crave horizons
I only can dream as I lie in my bed

(of) All of the places we’ll go, my love
all of the places we’ll go
when all this is over, we’re packing our bags
oh, all of the places we’ll go.

I’ve not seen the Northern Lights
or been to Japan
there’s never been time enough or money to spare
though I’ve longed many times before
to sail off to Skye
to walk on the Baltic coast or stand in Times Square

All of the places we’ll go, my love
all of the places we’ll go
when all this is over, we’re packing our bags
oh, all of the places we’ll go.

So lay down your weary head
dream of that day
of trains and of planes and of road trips we’ll take
and when life begins again
we still can go on
adding more and more names to the list that we make

(of) All of the places we’ll go, my love
all of the places we’ll go
when all this is over, we’re packing our bags
oh, all of the places we’ll go.

"Hamster-wheel head" is perfect. I like your melody and the optimistic tone in your vocal. That chorus melody is near perfect.

Well done wish list in song. Being shut in does give us time to make great travel plans and create engaging music. Good job on this one.

I want to put this on repeat tonight and go to sleep to it. Such a lovely lilting melody! Well done!

This lovely song does such a great job of telling our current shared (separately and remotely) story! Pretty vocals and sweet ukulele! Nice work on the skirmish!

Great use of a list song!

A theme song for our times, which dovetails nicely with the skirmish challenge. Would be a nice one to sing around a virtual campfire. Smile

I really like the title, and the hopeful and yearning lyric. Some great images in the verses help the listener’s imagination in the story, nice writing.

Very medieval sounding song. Your voice is beautiful.

I don't much care for traveling. Feel like I know what anything is going to be like before I see it. A bunch of disappointments. Biggrin Like for northern lights, I can tell you, they look exactly the way you'd imagine.

Well, it's not all bad. This thing isn't like black death. Maybe it'll be over sooner than 2120. Maybe. Who knows. Take freedom away and people will want it back even if they never utilized it. Right?
