Nearby the river

How can I feel that secure
and lost with you at once.
How can I keep what´s in my heart
without loosing you at once.

Uuuuh…

Nearby the river I ask myself,
if all I needed was just a little more time
cause deep inside some things have changed.
Nearby the river I ask myself,
if all I need is just a little more time
cause deep inside some things need to change.

How can I stand by myself
and be loved at once.
How can I be alive
and live my life with you at once.

Uuuuh…

Nearby the river I ask myself,
if all I needed was just a little more time
cause deep inside some things have changed.
Nearby the river I ask myself,
if all I need is just a little more time

Well done, Rebecca and Jochen. Love the harmony, and your choice of instruments. Mandolin, banjo and resonator make an interesting mix, and you mixed them in a pleasing way. I'm a bass player so most people don't take me seriously, but seriously I hear more freedom for the bass than just the straight 8s, ala Tom Petty. Keep 'em coming, guys.

Rebecca & Jochen,
I enjoyed your catchy modern country song arranged with trad. instruments- lots going on but the whole works and held my attention. Your vocal ( and harmony) is excellent!
The mix sounds right and I like the acappella ending.
Very good!

Robert

Rebecca,

Great sound right out of the gate—wonderful mix really hitting the ear in the right place. And then those lovely harmonic vocals. Dig that banjo hitting the left ear starting in the pre-chorus. Killer tune—bright sound, deep lyrics make a nice marriage here. Impressive work. Really well done tune!

All my best,

Deej

Kept my interest and had me thinking about it long after listening. The spacing in your lyric lines was intriguing. I liked the gradual transition to a cappella. Very well done.

Great vibe throughout, lyrically quite unique, and the phrasing is most interesting.

Your band did a good job supporting you here.

Top vocals, really tight.

Rebecca and Jochen I'm totally loving this song! Upbeat, refreshing, great instrumentation and great vocals. What a killer tone you have when you sing, and the two of you blend!

I especially the the melodic choices with the the chord change going into "needed."

Just a great song. So happy I got to hear it! Thanks!

Hi Rebecca and Jochen,

I find this a very good song! In that matter I want to underline what TuneMonger said about your style of singing in this song. That was exactly what caught me too. I read the lyrics while you were singing them in this way. this is called modern singing, isn't it?
And the band was strong, with a major role for that mandoline. So well done!

Btw: very nice city, Würtzburg,
Hans

Hi Rebecca & Jochen ...

What a great sound! This sounds very professional ... super mix, great lyric and excellent backing tracks. It's not necessary to say how good the vocal is ... but I will anyway. It's wonderful!

Terrific. Thanks for about three minutes of great entertainment. Please be safe ...

Alan
