Darling I Love You So (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 2014

It´s been a while
since I saw your smile
that smile that changed my life, and changed my style
where can I go,
I´ll go both hi and I´ll go low
just to show, just to show , just to show my love for you, you know
you know

I´ve come around
to the same ol´ground
where we used to go, so long ago
and I wish you could be
I wish you could be here with me
darling again, darling again
walking hand in hand like we did back then
back then

ref:
You´ve been away for so long, for a time so long
and all I can do is sitting here singing this song

You´re on my mind
´cause you´re one of a kind
you´re so sweet and so kind just so rare to find
I hope you´ll be mine
that really would be great and fine
darling you know, darling you know
darling I really love you so,
love you so
darling you know, darling I love you so

How do you spell smooth? D-A-N-I !!!

Good song and production. I'm sure you'll be as successful writing and singing about 'found' love as you do about 'lost' love when you one day find that 'right' one. I always enjoy your submissions.

Charlie

Hi Dani,

You are SUCH a romantic!

The instruments are mixed well. The vocal was a bit hard to hear clearly at the beginning - not sure if I could pick out why...

Hi, Floyd !:))

Yes, you are right, I am a romantic
and a big one too !:))(chuckle) !:))
I do not think I have been so
romantic all my life, it is
something that has grown on me
after my hectic work life !
I did try and take up the
lyrics in the beginning, for some
reason it is difficult to
extract the words "a while" !
I tried to do it by increasing
treble a bit and by lowering
the synth during the time those words
are sung !:)) The altered version is
in it´s normal place in the header !

Floyd, thank you for your most kind
words !:))

Cheers
Dani

Another sweet song!! If I heard one of your songs on an acoustic guitar, I would never think to use a pedal steel but it works very well. I always enjoy your songs for their sentiment and spirituality. And as you know I like the retro sound! Vocals are sweet as usual. Keep em coming-I`ll always be listening. Take care. Greg

Hi Dani,

And old friend of mine once wrote the following sentence in one of his lyrics:
'the perfect song is never really sung'

But that doesn't keep us from trying does it?
Your attempts are getting better and better, and yes like Floyd said:
you're a true romantic!
Very nice, looking forward to the next one!

Regards,
Rob

Hi, Greg !

Thank you for your most kind
comments ! :)) made me feel good !:))
The pedal, yes, it had to be dimmed
in a few spots not to override the
chords but I think I managed to
fix it ok. Retro, yes, I guess
I am a retro guy so the sound
I produce is retro too (chuckle) !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hey Dani,

"Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs and what's wrong with that, I'd like to know 'cause here I go again..." (quote from Sir Paul's Silly Love Songs lyrics).

I always enjoy going where that romantic heart of yours takes me in your songs. Nice big smooth sounding production on this one too.


Josie

Hi, Josie !


Thank you so much for your
most kind words ! Maybe Sir Paul
is right, maybe this really is
silly ? The problem is that
I write the way I feel and
if it makes me silly I guess it´s okay with me ! (chuckle) !
I am old enough to make a fool of
myself without being afraid of
making a fool of myself !:)) (giggle) !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi Dani,

I just realised that I haven't yet heard this one! You're a such a productive songwriter that it's hard for me to keep up!!!

There's nothing wrong with writing a good, old-fashioned love song. It's what makes the world go around. I always enjoy your music. Always.

A great listen,
Noel
