Don’t Ever Let Go

May 15, 2013

Huge shout out to “Dr.” Denny Rauen of Rauen Guitars for the delicate operation & restoration of my Black Guild. You have no idea how good it feels to be reunited. In honor of her return I had to get right in & test her out. Here’s a newbie recorded live at the new Studio H complex w/Tony Anders of Verona Grove.

‘Don’t Ever Let Go’ was written while on a recent trip to Chicago & while feeling a little down, overlooking the city and it’s love vibe inspired me to keep fighting onward after a tough year of healing. This song is a reminder to myself never underestimate the power of words & music as it is the emotional canvas between adversity & new beginnings. Truly hope you enjoy. ~ On track again, RA

Please share.

You say there’s more life to live
You say there’s more love to give
So hold on, no don’t
Don’t ever let go

You say once again I’ll feel
You say give it time you’ll heal
Just hold on, no don’t
Don’t ever let go

Feel the sunshine
See the rainbows
Feel the love shine down on you
See the world
Feel it’s love vibe
Hear it calling out on you

Now I know there’s more songs to share
Now I see there are those who care
So hold on, no don’t
Don’t ever let go

Words & music by Rob Anthony

There’s something about the city
That I have grown to love
The small town boy inside of me
Sometimes wonders if it’s wrong
My mama always says,
“Now son the small town’s your real home”
But down in the city is where I belong

I grew up way to quickly
When I went on my own
Left home at the age of seventeen
I had to learn how to be strong
I met a lot of good-hearted people
Never felt I was alone
Now my hearts in the city where I belong

I settle down in the city
My two feet on the ground
I know it’s hard on my poor, poor mama
Her small town boy he’s gone
But I will never forget
From where it is I come from
But down in the city is where I belong
