Without You
Words and Music by Troy Schiewe
Copyright 2019

I call you at home but you're never there
I say I love you you say you dont care
All your friends say that we're thru
I won't believe that it's true

I see you out with other guys
and everytime I just die
What your friends say must be true
I can't believe I lost you

Why can't you see what you mean to me
I can't go on without you
You were the one now that we're done
I can't go on without you.

I know someday you'll change your mind
You'll come back home and I'll be fine
Until that day I'll be blue
I'll wait forever for you

Why can't you see what you mean to me
I can't go on without you
You were the one now that we're done
I can't go on without you.

Very nice early 60s sound. Good vocals and production. Guitar solo track fits in like it was written for this song. Your post looks like it posted right away.

Really well done - loving the vintage feel it has, and the guitar tracks fit superb with the backing instrumentation. I thought the mixing job was on point also.

Thanks for sharing!

A nice one...
It has a Sedaka/Vee feel to it...
Great job!

Hi tschiewe,

I've always loved those old Neil Sedaka songs, and this one is very 'sedakaesque' indeed. So I just can't help but loving it. Very nice !!!

Stefan

Hi, Troy.

Good song, enjoyable listen. I love the harmony on the chorus - it don't sound synthetic at all, so excellent job mixing it in.

Nice! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
