I'm re-posting my songs so I can update the links to my Soudcloud page. Since they've all been deleted from the site I originally used.
I will do this gradually so as not to overwhelm or be disrespectful of other posters. smile

I rediscovered and recorded this in November 2013... Has kind of an 1980's pop thing going for it.



Here's a song I wrote in 1981 (I think). I recently re-discovered it on a piece of paper I had stashed away, I kind of remembered how it went and what I didn't remember (melody), I just re-wrote. grin

This arrangement is probably quite different than I envisioned when I wrote it, but I really like how it turned out.

I'm playing all electric guitar tracks and of course all vocals. RT's I used are below. All comments welcome.

WAIT & SEE

TEMPO:110


I SIT HERE ALONE THINKIN ABOUT LOVE AND DAYS GONE BY

OF HOW WE USED TO LAUGH AND SING AND HOW WE USED TO CRY

OH THAT I COULD ONLY HOLD YOU THE WAY I USED TO DO

I DON'T BELIEVE I'M EVER GONNA FIND ANOTHER QUITE LIKE YOU


TRUE LOVE IT NEVER DIES AND I HOPE YOU REALIZE THAT I'VE LOVED

YOU OH HOW I LOVE YOU

TRUE LOVE IT NEVER ENDS WHEN YOU BELIEVE ITS HEAVEN SENT LIKE I

BELIEVE WE WERE MEANT TO BE / JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE


I CALLED YOU UP JUST TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH IN THE WAY THAT I FEEL

NO ONE GIRL HAS TAKEN YOUR PLACE AND NO ONE EVER WILL

THOUGH I KNOW YOU LIE IN THE ARMS OF SOMEONE OTHER THAN ME

I KEEP HOPIN THAT SOMEDAY SOON YOUR GONNA SEE


TRUE LOVE IT NEVER DIES AND I HOPE YOU REALIZE THAT I'VE LOVED

YOU OH HOW I LOVE YOU

TRUE LOVE IT NEVER ENDS WHEN YOU BELIEVE ITS HEAVEN SENT LIKE I

BELIEVE WE WERE MEANT TO BE / JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE

(RIDE)

WILL YOU EVER WANT ME THE WAY THAT I WANT YOU

TO STEP BACK INTO MY LIFE NO ONE ELSE WILL DO


TRUE LOVE IT NEVER DIES AND I HOPE YOU REALIZE THAT I'VE LOVED

YOU OH HOW I LOVE YOU

TRUE LOVE IT NEVER ENDS WHEN YOU BELIEVE ITS HEAVEN SENT LIKE I

BELIEVE WE WERE MEANT TO BE / JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE (x3)

Nice song Greg. I enjoyed your guitar and the vocals were spot on. You should have turned the B3 in the mix for my ears. It fit the song well.

Enjoyed my listen.

Great delivery Greg

Sensational intro, started off with a real drive and certainly kept it going throughout

Top effort.
