What About Me

guess that we were way too young
when we first kissed
there has to be a reason we ended up like this


back then love felt so good
and maybe we misunderstood
made the best of what we had
it never really seemed so bad


Now you don’t really love me
You’re just hanging on to a dream
the kids the cars the little house
thought you had it figured out
but baby what about me

worked our jobs never talked
we tried to ease the stress
Alcohol we tried it all
without much success


A restlessness that never died
late night movies make me cry
In my dreams a secret wish
Never to wake up like this


Now you don’t really love me
You’re just hanging on to a dream
the kids the cars the little house
You thought you had it figured out
but baby what about me

Tom,

This is terrific... a most enjoyable listen. I really like the way you set up the hook... very skilful.

The sound you've produced here is first class and your performance is perfect for the presentation. I honestly can't imagine anyone singing it better than you.

A really satisfying listen.

All the best with the contest,
Noel

I had these lyrics earmarked for a different style. They plugged right in. There are some great styles in this Xtra pak. Thanks, Tom

Excellent song. A well deserved win in the SS category.

My only nit is that the drums, especially the snare, is a bit to loud in the mix and too bright. Other than that Good job.

Ahhh Waterline....
