I was expecting a slow ballad with that title. Very nice mid tempo song Robert. I don't know how you guys can write songs in a flash like this, amazing.

Great mix, lyric and melody. I enjoyed this as well.

Nicely done!

It would be nice to have harmony on the chorus - to my ear, the song seems to call for it.

Heavy Handed Edit: I've removed a mess I had written here earlier. In the song, the guy survives his medical problem. But on first listen - despite clearly saying that he was holding her hand - I was still left in doubt.

In thinking it through, I think the problem (for me) lay in the transition of the second verse. It starts out by reversing the situation, so that they've swapped roles. My first thought was to wonder Is the song singing about the same people?

Now, the song goes on to clarify that she's thinking about what he's said. And I'm fairly sure that they're the same folk, but I'm wondering: why isn't he saying what she's remembering?

It's not a big thing. But I think that small choice in the narrative opened the door to some doubt, and made me wonder if perhaps I'd mis-heard the lyric earlier. There were hints that he might not have survived his illness ("And even if He calls he home..."), and it's a country song, after all.

Anyway, nice work!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Robert,

I really, really liked the song and the message. It's an incredibly tight production that you have happening. With each song you write, your work just keeps on getting better and better and better.

It's a standing ovation from me.

All the best,
Noel

What do I think?

I think this is your best to date! And you have written some outstanding songs before this one!
