This is a song I (Al) I started 6 years ago but never could get it the way I wanted it; so I put in the "I Might Get Back To This In Times Of Desperation" file. I was playing it one day, thinking maybe a light bulb will go off...it didn't! Well, Di heard it and said, "Why don't you redo that with the new music program (BIAB) and I'll add my two cents' worth." So, I did, and made a few adjustments on the music. She put her magic voice to it and presto...a pretty danged good song! It's copyrighted 2011 because I never did anything with it for years.

The bass line needs to be a little louder and, maybe the strings need a little more punch, too. We're open to any other suggestions. Thanks!

Complete Surrender
© 2011 Alan D. David, BMI

(v1)
Burned by love some time ago
It’s hard to let my feelings show
Scars remain from that hurting time
My heart’s afraid to cross the line
But somehow you’ve broken through
Fixed my heart as good as new
But there’s still one thing you need to know

CHORUS
If I fall in love with you and offer you my heart
I hope you always… always will remember
It’s more than just… I love you
It’s everything I am
It’s complete surrender

(v2)
A simple lesson I have learned
A partial love gets no return
Give it all where love’s concerned
Any less is a heartache earned
Half a love can’t be redeemed
There can be no in between
If I fall in love, it’s everything

Glad to see you two back in the groove. Really enjoyed this, very nice chords/steps/transitions and awesome vocal, which is the norm:)

So, you know how it can be tough to find that second verse? You found it! Wow!



(I'm not sure about the low end and strings. I didn't notice anything out of place.)

Welcome back, hope all is well. I love the chord progression especially the chorus. Great vocal. The mix sounds good. I wouldn't change anything. Tom

Alan and Di...

Sweet! An excellent write! Like the classic love songs of the past.
Beautifully sung - believable, emotional...

Nice instrumentation and good mix. The strings are well done.

"Half a love can’t be redeemed
There can be no in between
If I fall in love, it’s everything"

Solid.

My new favorite of yours.

floyd

Hi Scott...

Thanks for the kind comments! And yep, 2nd verses can make or break a song. Glad this one works! Di appreciates the comment on her vocal. I'm so fortunate, beyond the obvious, to have a partner-wife who can sing like that! Thanks again!

Al I Di

Good Evening Floyd...

You are much too kind! We view you as one of the premiere composer/artists on this forum. Such high compliments are almost as sweet as a royalty check! We are humbled...thank you!

Al & Di

PS: that passage you quoted was actually some of the very first lines I wrote. I then wrote the rest of the song around them. Again, we thank you.

Good evening VT!

Thank you so much! And we're delighted you enjoyed the intro. we knew we wanted keys there but weren't sure which way to go, so we simply stayed with the acoustic piano we used in the remainder of the song.

Thank you for the visit and kind words!

Al & Di
