Description
Wrote and recorded this song a few weeks ago but held back from posting as I wasn't sure it was ready ... anyway, apart from adding string bass (midi keys) I've had no further ideas for improving it so here goes

thanks for listening

Lyrics
Wipe the tears from your eyes
A better tomorrow awaits you
You’ve heard enough of those lies
Make a u-turn now - I’ll try to help you through

Sorry I never stopped to think
You were feeling so small …
And teetering on the brink – needing …
Nothing more or nothing less
Than a little tenderness
Just gentle love and tenderness

You wiped the sweat from my brow
We toiled together - as months turned into years
Not sure I ever figured how
You took the strain, eased my pain and hid those fears

Sorry it never crossed my mind
You were so close to the edge
And struggling to find …
Nothing more or nothing less
Than a little tenderness
Just gentle love and tenderness

[Bridge]

Where the river meets the sea
That’s where I’ll wait for you
And as the tide turns constantly
You can depend on me to see you through

Sorry it never crossed my mind
You were so close to the edge
And struggling to find …
Nothing more or nothing less
Than a little tenderness
Just gentle love and tenderness

nothing more nothing less
nice harmonies....on nothing more etc....you can add more and it will work. it reminded me of octopus garden....in a good way. phil - you're not trying very hard vocally....either that or you're worried about how you sound? that's what i'm getting....but hey - i might be talking out my arse. i'm just saying that if you nail the vocal then you'll really lift the piece (because it's musically all there). rock on....time for a spliff.
