By Its Name

A song ushered into being by the 'Love' theme.


  1. I love the way you describe love in a very practical way that counts for more than anything else! I was engaged throughout to hear how you kept expanding on this. I liked how you turned it round at the latter part of the song “It calls me by its name”. Clever use of lyrics.

  2. Really good lyrics: simple, but clever. And very real. And English!
    In terms of a song, I’d like to see a couple of quirky chords to make me sit up, or a development into different structure for a middle 8. But I’ve been listening to a lot of songs so I’m looking for something to slap me in the face and tell me to keep listening.
    I really liked your song 😊

  3. You have aa troubadour’s spirit, Dave. You gather so many and varied aspects of love and blow them gently into the air for us to consider, like the seeds blown from a dandelion clock. Another classic Atkinsong.
