Friends – original music by @darrenclaxton- Exclusively for @Dsound & @Steemit and @stishit



‘Friends’ is a story about people that you knew really well, haven’t seen in a long time but thank for all the memories you made and now share.

I’ve moved around a few times during the past 15 years and met so many interesting lovely people along the way, that I’d like to call ‘friends’.

‘I wonder what they’re doing now, I’d like to find it out somehow and would you’?

This verse in the song really stays with me, as I feel we can all relate to that sense of “where are they now? What are they doing? and, I’d like to find out somehow”.
My hometown is a little town in Cambridgeshire, UK called Godmanchester

My best friend, My dad.
The one who raised me and my sister since we were 7 and 4 years old, the one who keeps me sane and the one who’s my biggest music fan!


Here’s the lyrics if you fancy singing along

Have you seen them come and go
people that you used to know
they were special
I wonder what they’re doing now
I’d like to find it out somehow
and would you

Long ago
the ones you knew
they were special

They said they’d call you on the phone
or send a letter to your home
but did they?

You maybe had a word or two
they told you they were missing you
but were they?

Long ago
the ones you knew
they were special

Ever since the day I left
you lot, well you’re
never there for me
a better life is what I have
thanks a lot for
all the memories
Ever since the day I left
you lot, well you’re
never there for me

I’m better now I’m gone
better now I’m gone
better now I’m gone
better now I’m gone


Thanks for listening and supporting my music!
Kindest
Darren Claxton

Darren Claxton is a Songwriter, Musician, Producer and now BBC Radio artist, from Derbyshire UK. The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’ . But most of all, it's his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.

We are too busy!! I rarely see my friends! That's why I wrote this song, to help me remember them! I've lost 2 of them over the past 2 years which was a very tough thing to come to terms with. They were special. My friends are now virtual online music fans which I absolutely embrace. We talk on here and Discord and they love to listen, comment and buy my music. We can leave it there for days on end and catch up whenever we like.

Darren I like the lyrics I will have to listen to the tune later but then the internet has really helped me to keep in touch with friends. I have lost a few myself and as I get older that number grows. Good !

I hear what you're saying man! Life is one big story book and every chapter matters! There's a new song lyric right there! Eric is working on increasing the upload Mb so I can add songs directly to my Steemthat posts, then you music will have the option of downloading it for Steemthat tokens Stish. Cool huh? ?
