What a perfect Christmas gift! BiAB 2018! Thank you to Pgmusic and Brent the guitar player. I was checking out the new realtracks of the 2018 release and found this acoustic fingerpicking guitar - 2914, and knew immediately it was the perfect guitar for a song I wrote in 2011 - like I had been waiting for this guitar or something.

The song started from a line from a movie I've long forgotten, "we brake the world in two". I paused the movie and wrote this song around that line.


Janice and Bud did a wonderful cover of this song on 4/28/2015:

Forever Missing You (L Olivier 5-20-2011)

I've got a headache pounding like problems unresolved
my eyes is blurry my mouth is dry as salt
and scenes from last night are starting to come through
I'm already missing you

I drank to happiness then I drank to excess
I swear I'm sorry love for getting us in this mess
Foolishness and selfishness got no place in love's brew
I'm already missing you

Seems like yesterday when you took me by the hand
said you was my woman, if I's smart I'd be your man
I guess fate's gonna have it's way no matter what we do
I'm already missing you

We brake our promises we brake each others hearts
and then we act like we don't care
we brake the world yes we're tearing it in two
and I broke me right after I broke you

So there's my story, and if I don't know where to start
It started in glory and ended up in broken hearts
I feel like crying but who would I cry to
so I'll just sit here missing you
I'll be forever missing you

The acoustic choice is the perfect real track for this. It's a great write with a superb melody and an outstanding vocal. I admire your artistry. Your mixes are catching up to your performances. Always an enjoyable listen. I am a huge fan. Tom

Wow - you did a fantastic job on this! It sounds very emotional and sincere. It's all around just a well written, and very pretty tune. The additional cello really took it over the edge. And as Tommy said as well - your vocals on this are outstanding.

You should be proud of this one - thanks so much for sharing smile

Thank you Tom. Yes I have been working very hard for at least the last two years to improve my mixes. And I now feel like I'm at a place where I can ease my foot off of the gas pedal a bit and that the worst of the learning curve is behind me.

Thank you Floyd. I really like some of the new acoustic guitars! Being a songwriter that almost always starts on guitar it's very nice to get some new grooves. I've already begun to rework an old BIAB song with new 2018 BIAB instruments. So satisfying when you find the right guitar!

Lawrence, IMHO, this is probably the best thing that's been posted on here in a while! It's got everything going for it: Vocal, write, instrumentation choices and production. not to knock anybody else's work, but this is just a great piece of music offered up with, as I hear it, sincerity in the vocal! Two thumbs up! Thanks, Torrey

What to say? It's all there.

- a heartfelt wonderful vocal performance

- a write that was, is and will remain memorable

- a choice of RT's that is stunningly beautiful in it's sparseness -- not an easy task at all to do.

- a mix that showcases all the goodness.

Congrats on an outstanding production!

Hey, back for another listen. Forgot to thank you for linking to Janice's version. And, as we listened again she said it still makes her want to cry.

This is tremendous Lawrence. The clarity of the mix is pro studio all the way.

Love this song, in the style of Kris Kristofferson I'd say.
