Style: CHEATED
Category: Rock/Pop

I wrote this some years back when I was in a melancholy mood. I first recorded it using Real Band a few months ago, but then redid the whole thing using the CHEATED style, and I just replaced it on Sound Cloud. I supplemented the bass with a cello, added a viola at the second verse, and then two violins emerge at the bridge.

CHEATED Tracks:
BB RealBass 2478 Bass, Acoustic, Held
BB RealDrums-PopAmerican
BB RealGuitar 1677 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking CountryB
BB RealStrings 2932 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Songwri

Additional Tracks:
RT2509 Cello, Background PopEven
RT2510 Viola, Background PopEven
RT2512 Violin, Background PopEvenLow
RT2511 Violin, Background PopEvenHigh

Lyrics

I’m all alone in the way that I feel
Out on my own with nothing left to reveal
Some things I’ll never tell you
So I’ll just bid farewell to you

Give me a word and I’ll have something to say
Please touch me once and I’ll feel another day
Give me a kiss and I’ll hide it away

Tomorrow knows if I’ll see you again
My sorrow shows, I can no longer pretend
For all my dreams I can’t atone
I might as well leave you alone

Give me a word and I’ll have something to say
Please touch me once and I’ll feel another day
Give me a kiss and I’ll hide it away

I’m sorry for the way I looked at you
Come closer, I need to know what’s true

Give me a word and I’ll have something to say
Please touch me once and I’ll feel another day
Give me a kiss and I’ll hide it away

not sure if your " new " composition was done in Band-in-a-Box® or RealBand or a combination plus perhaps some DAW .

However, your selection of the style Cheated was spot on .

The additional tracks and reverb together with your vocals made it a hit with me .

Good luck with your entry in this contest.

Thanks. I forgot that add that I generated the tracks in RB, and recorded, mixed, and mastered in MixCraft.

Loved this song. Great harmony vocals, and the inclusion of strings was great.

And I hope you are unaffected by the storm. Stay safe.

Thanks. We are in the western side of the state. We will probably get some extra rain.

Like the song, arrangement and the singing... the voice has a strange "I'm inside a barrel" element to it in my ears, for some reason, which is a shame considering the great harmonies.
