    Hello, I'd just like to say thank you for your kind words about my song, Fade Away. I put a lot of effort into my work, and this is a lifelong thing for me. Poetry is a freedom of the soul to me, and I let everything out when I write. I had no clue you had these accomplishments under your belt when I read your comment. Well done, sir. I consider myself honored to have been commented by you. =] Once again, thank you. -Andy
