What I Miss About You



I wrote this song between 2008-2010, but I had difficulties to find a satisfying arrangement. But everytime new realtracks have been released, the arrangement has gone a big leap forward. Hopefully this is the final version. Fellow BIAB users Rob and Anne-Marie (RnAM) added the vocals and did the final mix, thanks to them for their excellent work. Rob's voice really turned this into a catchy pop song; and the backing vocals in the chorus are stunning. All comments welcome!

Lyrics:

A blackbird singing outside
the pond unbroken fragile
the courtship is seductive
in a dream we are
walking down the aisle.
In reality I can't hurry love
effusive eagerness for flare
it is dangerous walking on thin ice
I should not taste a dawning pear.

What I miss about you
is the spark
when we kissed
at the heavenly hills.
I can never forget about you
how you got excited over
few little thrills
the last waltz hurts on repeat.

A car is waiting outside
you have packed your bookshelves
you have torn the signs down
all the wallpaper
that we picked ourselves.
Praying is futile I can't drag out love
I can't stop the train of mind
can't put back the water of a broken dam
life has no fast forward or rewind.

What I miss...

In eternity
between the rising and falling
between the waiting and longing
for a fraction of a second
we met pure hearted
no abstaining
like never departed
like never departed.

What I miss...

Well, you certainly managed to find the realtracks that worked now. Great lyrics.

Rob and Anne-Marie have presented it perfectly.

Great job.

This is a really nice production and the vocals are great. I would cut the last bass notes at the end though. It seems like the song is over by then. I really like this a lot though. Great job.

Hi Janne,

great arrangement. But the icing on the cake are
the vocals and harmonies by Rob and Anne-Marie.
I enjoyed my listen.

Thanks for giving positive feedback Videotrack, David, Charlie, Guenter, Peter, Noel, Sonny smile I'm glad to hear you liked the production and those excellent singers smile
Rob & Anne-Marie, you are true professionals, I really hope that one day I have another song ready for you to sing smile

David, I added those last bass notes deliberately, because I felt that the ending was lacking something without them. But maybe something else would have worked better...
