I have been out for a few weeks, dealing with life. smile I hope to be around more frequently.

I just re-arranged and re-recorded this song that I actually wrote 5 years ago, after both my daughters got married within a 12 month time frame (the year of my almost-bankruptcy). I was thinking about all the feelings and emotions that a dad experiences when he gives his daughter away for marriage, and wrote this song. I hope you enjoy it...

Whenever I See You

Here are the RT's/RD's used...

Steve,

I always look forward to hearing your songs. I think you have just written a new wedding standard with this one! Very beautiful and touching - great arrangement and vocal delivery as usual. So well done!

Only a real loving dad could write such words and mean every word of it. I enjoyed your experience through this song and it is refreshing to hear dads express their love for their family. Nice song with good choice of instruments to compliment your voice. I like your guitar solo and the chords you used in the fiddle part.

Very nice. Lyrics that evoke deep thought from anyone who has been through this. (I have not.)

Plus you have a voice that is so spot on accurate that the singing almost becomes subliminal and allows the listener to focus on those lyrics. Well done.

Very sweeeeeet stuff!! Take care. Greg

Steve, Your vocals are tremendous! Nicely written song and a fantastic arrangement. Every instrument is so separated and clear in the mix. Superb editing throughout. I like hearing just that little bit of steel near the end. you are a master at assembling these parts and the time you take and the care you show is clearly evident. Just Beautiful. Tom

Hello Steve,

As you know, we're always looking forward to your new contributions.
This is beautiful!
Outstanding vocals and a very professional use of the Pedal Steel RT!
The Dire soloist also works nicely here.

Steve - Tom often says the same things I think as listen...so +1 to all he said...

As always, your production is a work of art. Super nice editing on the Dire solo to keep it from sounding like "the Dire solo" (that it so often does).

It is a real talent to be able to write "plain speak" lyrics that convey real emotion (and do not sound trite)... you do that so well, so consistently.

There is a reason that "Beautiful" is used so often to describe your work.

floyd


PS - thanks for the nice comments in the Learning thread (didn't want to bump it again)

Lovely! What a tribute for them and with such feeling from Dad. And then
the icing on the cake consists of the heartfelt write and vocals. Oh, and
then there is the Steve Young high bar production values to marinate
it all. Greg and floyd used up the best superlatives for this...but we
sincerely agree with them.

Wonderful.

Steve,

I don't know what's in the drinking water at Canyon Lake TX but... wow! You consistently present the forum with outstanding work. The melodies you write are amongst the best I've ever heard, your arrangements always hook my imagination and effortlessly carry me along on the song's journey and your lyrics are so very effective.

"Beautiful" is an absolute pleasure to listen to. I honestly don't think that music can get any better than this.

I hope that all is travelling well for you and your family,
Noel

Thanks, Greg! I still had a hard time singing it when I recorded it this week, even after 5 years. I think it must be allergy season, my throat kept getting choked up! smile My youngest is now 30, and between the 2 daughters we now have 4 grandkids, and a 5th on the way. Life is good! Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment!
