A departure from my usual style and a somewhat personal subject matter for me.

I posted this up having a definitive idea of how I wanted this song to turn out. I just needed a little extra help given that my bass skills are somewhat lacking, as are my piano and string arrangements.
Well, the lads did not disappoint. Gary did, what can only be describe as a exemplary performance on both the orchestral arrangements and his mix. He completely moved the song to a different style, away from what I had in mind, and made the song an epic. Completely blew me away. Which is also the reason that there are two versions posted. My version and Gary's version.

Andy worked his fantastic bass chops that just slotted straight in place.
Henry worked some outstanding laid back guitar and terrific piano work.
Tricia worked her velvet vocals for the backing.

I would like to thank everybody for their hard work.  

Steve (Albino) - Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Drums, Percussion, Mix and Master
Gary   (GBM)   -  Strings and Mix
Henry (docmidnite) - Piano and Electric guitar.
Andy  (AndyG) - Bass
Tricia (Tricia41) - Backing Vocals


I sit here next to you
Hold your hand the night through
I need some inspiration
As I listen to your respiration

That's the very least I can do,
Preparing to say adieu,
This feeling of helplessness.
Overwhelming I Confess.

Chrous

That family picture of a
Cheeky little nipper
I wanna be that little
Boy again.


I got feelings I can't subdue
When I'm wrapping curtains around you
And the night just  Seems to last
Forever


I got feelings I can't subdue
When I'm wrapping curtains around you,
And It gets so hard to keep it together.



I need a lot more time I plead,
To say just what I need,
But I don't think You hear me,
You are already free.

Besides I liked the song from scratch the lyrics touched me personally since my mother is in a coma for 3 years now after having some brain bleeding due to a rare malformation of her brain vessels ( I researched and it's nothing me or my sister or even our kids can get, it's just damn fate...).
The piano is not really me but I composed it with the help of EZpiano by Toontrack!
The guitar is me though!!! Grin

I'm so sorry to hear about your mum. truly I am. It is a shit fact of life. Just shit.

In a completely weird kind of way, I am glad that my lyrics actually, "touched you ". I don't like the circumstances as to way my lyrics moved you, in fact I truly feel for you, but to have written a song that has "moved" someone.....I am touched...just touched.

I feel that IS the point of music....

(I do not mean to belittile your family's  plight  at all, I am thinking of you)

I Have since perchased EZKeys and I CAN confirm that Henry really did work his personality all over this track..... I need some time to get my head around this plugin.  Undecided

Having lost my mum a while ago and my dad recently ( I watched him pass away in Mins in front of me, I never felt so helpless) I could relate to this song from the start.

I didn't know what the lyrics were about, and rather than looking like a dummy I didn't ask. I don't usually pay attention to lyrics and I had no clue what the story was about, but it makes sense now. Nice lyrics! Grin Grin Grin Grin
