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!

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.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
