Long as I'm With you
Words and Music by Troy Schiewe
Copyright 2019

Here with you
Know you're feeling it too
We've got to get out of here

Up all night
On an evening flight
Dont care when I'm with you

So in love its true
All I ever want to do

Drive in a car
Don't have to go far

Jump on a plane
Doesn't matter where we are

Riding a train
We could go insane

Doesn't matter what we do
Long as I'm with you


Solo


It's our night
And the feelings right
It just me and you

Smile on your face
In our favorite place
Can't get enough with you

So in love its true
All I ever want to do

Drive in a car
Don't have to go far

Jump in a plane
Doesn't matter where we are

Riding a train
We could go insane

Doesn't matter what we do
Long as I'm with you
As long as I'm with you

May seems to have been good to you...
Another quality song...
I really enjoyed the organ "glue" you put the backing tracks...
It seems to pull the song together in a pleasant sort of way!

A good vocal on your driving song- gritty guitars and the organ work well.

Very nice pop-rock country tune, well mixed with great sounding vocals. The solo guitar is good selection. Nice chording, reminds me bit of The Jayhawks.

Very nice and pleasant song to listen to. I couldn't help thinking of David Bowie or maybe Roxy Music... which is a compliment to you!

Very well done!

What a tune! It honestly sounds like something I'd hear on the radio. Some solid guitar work here, and both your vocals and instrumentation are fantastic. Really sounds like a classic rock tune from the late 70's.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile
