This is a song that started with my son's friend; a 21 year old youngster; asking me to help him record some of his original ideas with the idea of him putting a band together to complete it. However he keeps having disappointment after disappointment with failed band projects. He recently was feeling quite defeated thinking he sucks & his song ideas suck. With the completion of this & all the help from the fine folks here at MCS I believe any doubt he may have had should be pushed aside. Everyone did a great job & I can't thank you enough.

John Scunziano - lyrics
Glen Griffin - vocals



Almost a Love Song

(intro)

(verse1)
is it a love song .......if i sing of love ....not found......
searching for passion...... i went from town to town.....
though i never found it........ for it was still at home.........
wasted all those years  ......on the time i had to roam........

(chorus)

oh now where did lucy go.......
she was my best friend........
her memory.... so ........strong......
oh i sing of lucy now.........
she was my dear sweet friend.......
almost.... a....... love........... song........

(verse2)

back when i left home lucy done the same.........
had to find ourselves bu...........t were never seen again..........
i found during my search.......... my heart remained at home.........
though the years..i thought of lucy............ and if she was all alone................

(chorus)

oh now where did lucy go...........
she was my best friend............
her memory ........so.............strong........
oh i sing of lucy now............
she was my dear sweet friend........
almost......... a... love ..............song........(all most)

(music-bridge-break)

(verse3)

it's been far too long .....and i hope she's doing fine...........
i've longed to see her .....and wanted to make her mine.........
that won't ever happen ..this now...i... painfully know.............
'cause her gravestone reads...just.... how she had missed me so.......

(chorus)

oh now where did lucy go.........
she was my best friend.........
her memory ..........so........ strong
oh i sing of lucy now............
she was my dear sweet friend..........
almost....... a ..love .........song............. (so close)

(so close)

(outro-lead)

Wow, this turned out cool!

Indeed, no doubt the original idea was a pretty good one- if this youngster got some more, I'd be happy to spend some deep notes!

Thanks for having me and merry Christmas everybody!  Smiley

Believe it or not Holger, you're also a part of this song... the lyrics might not be as recognizable now, but I originally wrote them to the tune of yours that eventually became Fair Weather Friend by you and Johnny. Smiley

Thanks everyone. Austin was tickled to hear how this turned out. He seems reinvigorated and inspired to get some more tunes going. So it looks like we'll be pretty busy after the first of the year.
Thanks again...you guys really are a fantastic bunch.

Interesting sound - well done!

The guitars are nicely mournful too. SHould work well as a soundtrack for a Rosemary Baby type movie!

Right after i sang this for the demo i instantly thought of Griffo to sing the final version.
I just love that rough soulful quality in his voice.
It was perfect for this song.
