Face To Face

Wind River -Chasing His Tail On Main Street
Face To Face
by Michael Doyle

Coming face to face
With my mortality
I'll be never be
Just another fatality

Let there be no doubting
That I'll go out shouting
Grabbing on as hard as I can
I live to be that kind of man

Gonna, gonna hit it!
You know that I'll
Never quit it!
If you think so
You'd better forget it
Cause
I'm gonna, gonna hit it

It is a serious fight
That much, you've got right
But I've seen the morning light
And I'm good for yet another fight

You might think I'm blind
But look again, I think you'll find
Don't talk to me of animus or history
Raising the Devil, is no great mystery

Gonna, gonna hit it!
You know that I'll
Never quit it!
If you think so
You'd better forget it
Cause
I'm gonna, gonna hit it!

Rocking hard and solid
I'm gonna blow my lid
With a tight shot, forget me not
Living the only clue I got

Twisted and turned
Bleeding out as I've learned
I reach for all that is within
Starting from the top again

Gonna, gonna hit!
You know I'll
Never quit it!
If you think so
You'd better forget it
Cause
I'm gonna, gonna hit it!

It sounds better with the guitar work behind it. But I don’t know how to get this properly recorded onto this format.
