TEMPO 65

such a lonely time, its the only time, that I've really missed you.

when we said goodbye, that little white lie, I was crying over you.

chorus

when you went away, left me there that day, then I wondered why, why I didn't try,

broke my heart in two, when you said were through, you just walked away, on that rainy day,

left me all alone, why ill never know did I ...stray.

instrumental


if there could only be, one more time for me,

then I would hold you in my arms, I would thank the gods above for

your tender love, and what you mean to me.


when you went away, left me there that day, then I wondered why, why I didn't try,

broke my heart in two, when you said were through, you just walked away, on that rainy day,

left me all alone, why ill never know did I ...stray.

Colly,

There`s a 50`s feel to this enjoyable ballad.Your vocal sounds good and I liked the arrangement -particularly the strings coming in.
Nice one!

Robert

Colly

Nice classic rock sound with a top quality vocal.

Just a small suggestion for what it's worth the 2nd instrumental with the strings is more defined as an instrumental whereas the first one has a nice sounding guitar but it sounds a bit far back and a bit like the backing track to me(which you may have intended).

Anyway nice song and lyric.

Peter

Sounds like you're a quick learner colly!

The only improvements I could suggest would be the inclusion of a hook and a more clearly defined melody in the break sections.

An incredible retro production on a dead-on 50s sounding retro hit. High quality stuff.

You did some unexpected things towards the end that added a brilliant twist to the genre. Pretty amazing man.

Great job.
