Lyrics:

Your Kiss Changed Everything

Verse (1)
I stopped believing in love
It’s like some fool just made it up
I built my walls as tall as heaven
Didn’t think I needed anyone

Chorus
But I found you in my darkest place
When I thought there was no way
I could ever love
You stole my heart, you were a thief that I needed
Oh I’ll never be the same
Cause your kiss changed everything

Verse (2)
We kissed for hours in my truck
Until that morning sun came up
You were everything I wanted
It took one look and I was in love

Chorus
But I found you in my darkest place
When I thought there was no way
I could ever love
You stole my heart, you were a thief that I needed
Oh I’ll never be the same
Cause your kiss changed everything

Bridge:
Against all odds
Against all my fears
You healed my heart
You dried my tears

Chorus
But I found you in my darkest place
When I thought there was no way
I could ever love
You stole my heart, you were a thief that I needed
Oh I’ll never be the same
Cause your kiss changed everything

Excellent vocal. Very pretty backtrack. I imagined your wife loved this song as well. Well done.

Great lyrics, melody, vocals, feeling, & performance...
Very Garth Brookish type of country style...
It should fit nicely in his repertoire as well in yours...
Good job... I like it!

Verse (1)

"I stopped believing in love
It’s like some fool just made it up
I built my walls as tall as heaven
Didn’t think I needed anyone"

So simple yet says so much. I think that's some really terrific writing. And the rest of the lyric is right there, too. Your vocal sits so perfectly in this song. Your vocal reminds me a little bit of Richie McDonald. Actually it reminds me of him quite a bit.

Loved it! One thing for consideration ... perhaps let that distortion guitar have a louder voice on its short solo. But man, this is just so good!

best to you ...

Alan

Thanks Alan for the feedback and advice on the mix. Being deaf in one ear makes mixing a challenge particularly when panning . I will adjust the volume— very much appreciated.

Well, listen like Brian and mix in mono - it can sound as good as stereo and often more powerful.
Seriously - the stereo mix is pretty good given your circumstance BUT if you centre everything and get your levels right (remember to do the same with any stereo effects), I think this song would shine as brightly. In the mastering stage a good ME will sprinkle a little magic dust with delay/reverb to give it THAT feel.

Wow - what a tune! You did a remarkable job here. You can tell it's from the heart, and your vocals are outstanding. It flows beautifully, and is truly a touching tribute.

You should be really proud of your work on this one - thanks so much for sharing smile

Always touching to read personal backstory behind a song, brings another dimension for the lyrics, I had a tear in my eye already in the chorus. Great story, beautiful melody, emotional vocal delivery. That solo guitar might sound better with bit more breadth and reverb.

Hey Bob, wowzers! The arrangement is a pleasure to listen to and I dig the overall timbres. Adding the fiddle to this is a nice touch. Very captivating lyrics. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! This is a great song and that chorus is so strong.

No need to parse it out...all is good.

Back for another listen....

Nice song, Bob. Nicely produced. The acoustic guitars and piano sound especially good - crisp, clean, clear.

Good mix throughout.
