Hi, all my friends !

I am afraid I am falling in love
again ! My girlfriend from the past
(it was over 50 years since we broke up
and I have not seen her ever since)
was visiting me on thursday and I
had made a very good dinner for her
and for my quartet friends. Me and
my quartet sang quite a few songs
during the evening and when we were
left alone we continued to talk about
everything we had missed during those
50 years. It was a superb evening that
I will remember for the rest of my life
and it is with great sadness I have to bide
her farewell today as she is going back to
Norway where she works and lives and where her
husband and family are ! The evening was
magic as we thrived so well in the company
of each other. I am going to miss her
very much, but hopefully she´ll show up
again maybe next year ? I had to write her
this tune " You Came To Me" with words straight
from my heart ! You can surely feel my double pain
having lost my dear wife and not being allowed to
show my love for my dear old girlfriend also !
At the same time I must confess I have been blessed to
have had such wonderful women in my life ! I have felt
and still feel privileged !

Lyrics:

YOU CAME TO ME (by Dani)

You came to me, my dear old friend, I fell again
I fell for you, I always do, I fought in vain
and it´s true
it´s true that I kept lovin´you
all of these years I just loved you too

To you my friend, I sing this song
If only I, could go beside you, all along
down your way
hoping you´ll be there to stay
and never to go away

Darling when, you came to me
you opened my eyes, again to see
just how wonderful,the world can be
when you do, allow, yourself to be free

You lit the flame, I thought had died, so deep inside
and so my friend, my love for you, I cannot hide
anymore
day by day, I love you more
a feeling I can´t ignore
it´s just like before

© Dani Lindroos 2014
This song is dedicated to my good old girlfriend Babben!

Excellent job Dani. Vocals were eloquent and I loved how you held the vocal on the word 'true' around the .28 second mark.

Regards,

Charlie

Really beautiful!! I love what comes through musically and lyrically-innocence, purity, and enthusiasm of young love. Really love the music too. Burt Bacharach would be envious! This may be my favorite of yours so far. Take care. Greg

Sweet song Dani, straight from the heart. Like the way you held true too. Nice sounding mix.

Now the backstory, I don't know whether to feel happy for you or sad.....I guess it's a mixed bag.

Hi, Greg !:))

I am humbled by your most
kind words ! Don´t really know
what to say but this tune should
in reality have a chord that I
did not find a name for ! (does
not necessarily change the whole
but anyway) !:))
I am glad you liked it that much !!

Cheers

Hi, Josie !:))

Thank you so much for your most
kind comments ! Yes, it is exactly
as you say, it is a bit bittersweet,
as I did not in any case want to
mix up here present marriage !
It seemed to us both, though, that
there are still very deep feelings
between us !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Richard !


She lit my flame and it is
burning now, that is for sure,
and none of us can foresee what
will come out of this other than
a deeper friendship than either
of us expected !:))I do thank you
so heartily for your most kind
comments !

Dear Jo !:))

I feel humbled by your most
kind and warm words !
You are so right, during this
evening we both traveled back
50 years in time, we became
young again, we sat till three
and held each others hands
and we found ourselves so
incredibly comfortable in each
others company that it was exactly as
if it was yesterday we had parted !!

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Scott !

I feel very humbled by
your more than kind words !
I am very glad you liked it
I wrote the lyrics in a certain
state of nostalgic mind I was
and am in love and that may be
the reason for the lyrics to
follow the mood of the song !
Thank you for your most kind comments !

Cheers
Dani
