Hi all. Hope every one has had a safe holiday season.
Wrote this one late last year.

All comments welcome. Rob


Counting the moments

I'm counting the moments since we've been apart.
How often Ive laid in the dark.
I miss your lips and the smell of you hair.
Darling I wish you where here.

Bridge

I miss your lips and the smell of you hair.
Darling I wish you where here.

I meant all those words that I whispered to you.
And I hope, that you did, too.

I miss your lips and the smell of you hair.
Darling I wish you where here.

Yes I miss your lips and the smell of you hair.
Darling I wish you where here.

Bridge

I miss your lips and the smell of you hair.
Darling I wish you where here.

Oh how I wish you where here

This is a very cool tune. Has a Marty Robbins vibe to it. Super vocal and back track well done..

This is an excellent waltz with a touch of Marty Robbins.

That mandolin was perfect for this song.

Great vocal and lyrics also.

Great job on this one - Two thumbs up.

Very good vocal Rob! Like someone else said, this reminds me a lot of Marty Robbins (One of the absolute greats). Great 70's sounding Country! Thanks, Torrey

Great work on this, Rob! A couple others mentioned, and I have to agree - I'm definitely getting some Marty Robbins vibes here, which is definitely a good thing! I love how gentle this sounds. It is easy to sway to, and your vocal performance is absolutely on point.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Excellent Rob. Everything comes together on this. The lyric, melody and arrangement are perfecto for your vocals.

And we need more waltzes...

Enjoyed it!

Hi Rob,

I have a great respect for anyone who can write a waltz - I've never been able to get
that time signature to work.

This is a great country waltz and whilst I quite agree with everyone who mentioned
Marty Robbins, I also thought I could have heard Jim Reeves singing this.

Lovely backing track and very relaxed vocal delivery, all wrapped up in an excellent mix.

ROG.

Rob, this IS a gorgeous song and it really suits your voice which was born to sing country.
Good luck as it should be recorded by some mainstream srtists
