I’m Not Over Her

I still see her on the street
She still smiles when we meet
I try to walk away but then I turn

I guess that I may never know
If I’ll ever let it go
I just don’t understand why I’m not over her


We can’t go back and try to be like the way we used to be
Our days would never be the way they were
After all this time
Still can’t get her off my mind
I just don’t understand why I’m not over her


These days I still feel the same
Every time I hear her name
Deep inside that old familiar burn


Uptown she celebrates success
Down here well I”m the same old mess
I just don’t understand why I’m not over her

Can’t go back and try to be like the way we used to be
Our days would never be the way they were
After all this time
Still can’t get her off my mind
I just don’t understand why I’m not over her

WOW!!!! May be your best to date Tommy!!! And that's saying a lot!! From the first Born To Run like tremolo guitar chord through the last note, it is a gripping song!! Great lyric, great music, and a vibe that is instantly infectious!! Love the vocal too!! Glad I was dropping by and got here first!! Take care. Greg

Hi Tom
I also felt there was a touch of Springsteen about that opening. The vocal, lyrics, arrangement, mix and guitars are all right up to your usual high standard. Big fan of your work.
Regards,
Leon

Always a treat and this one is no exception.

Superb dynamics, loved the ending and the overall sound.

Just a quality song.

I agree with Greg: This is one of your best. I really like it.

The beginning grabs you and the song doesn't let you go, even after it's over. Great ending.

Tom, you have post some winners here before but this one really raises the bar! IMHO this is your best to date. Everything is perfect and radio play ready IMHO.

Outstanding song.

Sounds great! Big classic rock sound, strong vocals, nice harmonies.

The mix sounds great - big and balanced.

I played it through multiple times, sounds just as good each time. laugh

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

Love this one, Tom!

You had me hooked right from the great intro, and things just got better from there.

Man, the mix is just fabulous!

One of your best I think, and you have done a lot of great songs over the years.

Love the opening lines:
"I still see her on the street
She still smiles when we meet
I try to walk away but then I turn"

Very relatable. A catchy vocal and the perfect band brings out the best. So well done, Tom. And what a cool outro, too.

Tom,
One of the best country rock songs ever posted here, I think- lyrics universally felt, very catchy chorus and excellent vocal and mix.
Top shelf, sir!

Reminded us of Bob Seger from the get go. And from that get go Janice
was singing along -- always a good sign she loves a tune.

Your lead and harmonies are outstanding...nuff said.

Your guitar is always where it oughta be and playing what it oughta play for the particular song.

And, man, those drums are, again always, the best you'll hear round here.

And the write? Immediately engaging and a cool structure.

"Uptown she celebrates success
Down here well I”m the same old mess
I just don’t understand why I’m not over her"

That is for us a great example of what separates you from the pack.

Stellar,

J&B

Very cool intro Tommy. Love the fender tone and vibrato. Super vocal and lyric. Backtrack was excellent. Loved the mix

I agree with others that the beginning really catches your attention and the chorus is strong. You really sing this well too. This would do commercially -- upbeat-- the first 30 seconds would grab the streaming listeners and keep them listening

Tom,

Excellent in all regards. Cannot help but LOVE this right out of the gate.

A GREAT sound. Everything coming together perfectly.

A solid write. It "sticks with you" with one listen. Hallmark of quality.

Superb mix. Engaging vocal.

This one has it all. Loved it!

Hi Tom,

A very good song. A strong intro, strong vocals and 'soft' lyrics!
And... a very catchy melody.
I'm really impressed.
During the song I had to think (sometimes ) of songs from Floyd.
I think you're in the same room when it comes to these kind of songs.
And I do like his songs, so it isn't surprising I like this one too!

Very enjoyable,
Hans
