"He went out for a pack of cigarettes, and never came back"

I remember someone saying that, way back in my youth.
It sounded bizarre...

Once again I used Brent's Dreamy Soloist. The most versatile soloist (but then again all Brent Mason RTs are top-notch).

Comments encouraged!

Lyric:

You would happily go for a walk, cause there's so many ways to go
To see what's waiting out there. To find out where you've been

And though she'll look for you, she'll be better off alone
She will be thinking to herself. But one day she'll belong

You've got a whole new world to go to. A whole new life to live through
And when it's raining, it's raining! Your soul will reach out to no one
Leaving any love behind

You've got a whole new world to go to. A whole new life to live through
And when it's raining, it's raining! Your soul will reach out to no one
Leaving all her love behind

Only a top-notch dreamy solo could hold up to this outstanding, dreamy vocal, Rob. Man, that is good. I love the melody and backing band. Great job of laying the piano in with all those guitars. A wonderful presentation.

That's how it's done grin

I'm not 100% sure if I really got the verses, but with the first chorus you had me, that's just beautiful and I had to listen to the song again.
Amazing vocals!

Nice simple story accompanied by beautiful melody.
Excellent singing. Enjoyable instrumentation, especially the piano and Brett is always safe bet.

Rob...Oh wow! your vocal is the first thing to catch our ears and it is so bright and clear in fact for a song that's kinda sad the production is so light and airy ...man I really like this...you're right, Brent is the best but I think it's the Bolero that makes the track so cool...kind of a Spanish touch...but the vocal is killer and IMO the song's too short...but it's always better to leave us wanting more!!

Rob, one of if not your best to date. It is hard to say as all of your songs are fantastic.

Great vocal, chord progression, instrumentation, and mix.

Two thumbs up.

Hey you two Europeans!!

This song is very beautiful and atmospheric. Just my cup of tea.

Loved it! Great listening!!

You story reminded me of a dear friend I had in Pigalle when I was living in Paris. He was very French and said he wanted to write a classic French novel, but could barely get a page. I asked him to read me what he had so far.

It went like this.

No More Bread in Paris
By Monsieur P.

It was raining in Montmartre for four days and my beautiful girl had left me. She said she was bored with life but she never said why.

I felt bad, but not bad enough to kill myself yet.

So I put on a raincoat and walked downstairs to buy some fresh bread, thinking the smell of it in my nose would bring me back to life.

But the Boulangerie had gone out of business. The street corner was now filthy and desolate. A working girl winked at me and I told her I wasn’t in the mood. Then she told me to…well, it was a vulgar word. She did look like a vulgar girl anyway, I think.

So I bought a pack of cigarettes and smoked one on the street while the icy rain poured down inside my neck. When the last bitter swallow of smoke had burnt the back of my throat, I dropped the butt on the ground and walked back home in the rain, like a ghost of myself. All of Paris was like a cemetery now.

I wondered if at last I had become too French. But to be honest, I felt cheated about the bread.

And I realized, that is all I had to say about Paris or life. My book was done. And so was I.

--The End--

Totally enjoyable. So professional. Great write, arrangement, production and performance. The SoundCloud ad for Gain detergent caught me off guard for a second because the narrative synced quite well with your opening remarks about cigarettes and seemed like a spoken word opening to the song. Happy coincidence I guess.

What a lovely vocal Rob. Harmonies were so delicate. The song has an old feel to it. Just loved the story in the lyric. Banding band was perfect for your song. Well done.
