YOU NEVER SAID A WORD

you showed me what these arms are for
and what a kiss could be
lessons on just how hard i could fall
were taught so tenderly
i know two hearts can beat as one
girl, you showed me how
you taught me all i know about love
but you left one thing out

   you never said a word about leaving
   you left me without a clue
   now that you're gone how do i go on
   what am i supposed to do
   how do i face losing you
   i don't even know where to start
   you never said a word about leaving
   or what to do with this broken heart

you never told me how bad it would be
when we went our separate ways
all that talk about forever
there was nothing on a heart that strays
you covered the subject from a to z
on all that love could be
but now that we're through
i know there's something that you
forgot to mention to me

   repeat chorus




Hope you enjoy it.
Comments encouraged.
Have at it.

Hello Floyd,

Great song! Thank you for sharing. I'm impressed with your mix. Your vocals and backing vocals are balanced really nicely with the rest of the tracks.

Exactly

I will add I liked your harmonies also.

Every time you post a song I want to say "this is your best to date". How do you do it? You are a writing machine.

As Josie said "just beautiful"

Floyd,

Very good - the heartache in the lyrics is nicely offset by that very catchy chorus melody.
Great vocal and harmonies... and the crystal clear sound we expect from your work.

A great song Floyd, well scripted, the age old heartache when two drift apart.
Everything was out of the top drawer here. The harmonies spot on, the balances vocal to instruments, was perfect.

Uh, Well, Floyd, I assume you weren't going for Disco or Hip Hop, right?

And it wasn't rock, exactly, so that leaves....

Re: You Never Said A Word - 10/10/16 08:11 PM

Floyd Jane-Jack of all trades, master of ALL!! How's that for a turn of phrase? This is GREAT!!! Totally different than what I've heard from Floyd, except the craft which is always there in spades. This is a song that could (and should) traverse many styles. I think of "I could love you like that"-big hit in pop and country. A universal message, so crafted, so pleasant, so catchy. TWO big thumbs up (unless you count my big toes!) Another great effort Floyd!! Take care. Greg

Hello, floyd

Very strong song. Your vocal is so professional.
Acoustic Guitar at intro. is so nice.
Little reverb is favorable.
The combination of Drums and Percussion is very pleasant.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.

It's already been said a thousand times but you are the master of this kind of song.

I love your use of harmonies and all the little details that make a difference.

Well done!

floyd, this is another master class in lyric crafting. Beautifully written. A fine vocal and the top shelf production that we are so accustomed to. Love the congas. Really good listen. Tom

Another great track. I've only been a user of biab for two months but I'm in aw of you all. I've listened to yourself a lot and make you the bench mark for my songs and recordings. Total respect for all the talent on here keep it up guys

Re: You Never Said A Word - 10/13/16 07:02 AM

Wow Floyd, this is a perfect 'crossover' - pop with a country flavor. Exceptional lyrics, very strong write and a great mix and arrangement. Everything falls right into place. Vocals and harmonies are superb.

I like this one a lot.

You let this one out of the barn on the day we were battling rain and some wind... and no power and no internet.

Nice work as is usual from you.

Re: You Never Said A Word - 10/14/16 08:14 PM

Floyd, this is a great song. It effectively tells a story and the vocal is very good. Nice job of building the instrumentation as it went along and great mix. Thanks, Torrey.

Re: You Never Said A Word - 10/15/16 07:08 AM

After several listens to this we are struck as always with what
a fine singer and writer you are. Your lyrics are like a fine book
where one can always count on a gem for every page. No matter
the subject or the genre your lyrics are invariably full of cool
little twists and turns...never over done but enough to separate
them from the pack. Perhaps it your ability to offer a fresh take
on any theme.

Your mixes are showcases (well this is the showcase) for just how
amazing RT's and RD's are.

Oh yeah, cool percussion too.

Kudos mr jane

Shigeki Adachi - Thank you for those very kind words. The GroovyFolk guitar is overlooked, I think - a good choice for an acoustic for certain songs - it play interesting patterns (quite James Taylor-ish). The Percussion RDs fit nicely with many of the regular Drum RDs and give a song better movement...

Thanks, John. We do have a bunch of very talented writers and producers who post here - a lot of variety - and creativity - giving us all new ideas about how to use BIAB... it is a truly wonderful forum...

Thanks, Herb - glad you made it through it without too much effect. We were fortunate that it stayed far enough east that it had little effect here...

Addendum to our previous response:

We've now listened in both vehicles, on the larger "living room" system and of course on our monitors. The mix is remarkable on all three and IMO that is a primary indicator of a great mix. Heck it sound good on our iPad!

good one bud.

the lyrics on the song and arrangement.

Been away working from home and

but I enjoyed this.

And had to comment.

Take care.

Loving the guitar solo as I write this. You really set the bar for tasteful songwriting and production. It's always great to hear your tracks.

Re: You Never Said A Word - 10/21/16 06:46 PM

What can I say that has not been said? Terrific voice that has somehow found the ideal lyrical and musical styles to allow it to reach the heights.
I am working a bit on constructing bridges and composing fills. Haven't found a better teacher than your tracks; so, thanks.
