Don't Mean that Much to Me

Description
I haven't posted anything in about a year so I'm putting up this sloppily recorded song I did a few years ago. It's a happy little acoustic/pop song that I did when I first started singing on my stuff and had no clue how to use my Roland 880EX hard disk recorder. In fact I never did master that confusing machine. Oh, well. I should have have some newly recorded GarageBand material to post in the next week or so.

Lyrics
Don't Mean That Much to Me
Words and music by Demetrius P. Hill ©2003 All rights reserved.

Been a year since I heard her voice and I'm just so proud of that.
It's really not that difficult, when you know you're never going back.

For 12 months I've been doing fine, but every time you say her name.
It's not funny when friends do that cause it brings back so much pain.

Listen –– She don't mean that much to me, no, no, hear what I say.
She don't mean that much to me, but please don't say her name.

When I was hers and when she was mine, I prayed for better days.
Had to get, far away from her, and all her selfish ways.

And I won't, tell myself I'm over her if I'm not,
But, we had three years and I gave her, her shot,
So I know I will never call.
And I could use a little help from ya'll.

Listen –– She don't mean that much to me, no, no, hear what I say.
She don't mean that much to me, but please don't say her name.
She don't mean that much to me, oh, no, don't say her name.
She don't mean that much to me, so why you gotta cause me pain?

And I swear to God I believed that girl every time she told me she loved me,
But she has no idea what love is.
And what I need right now is someone who's kind and who's funny,
A woman who gives at least, as much as she gets, from me.

My friends say, that I've lost my mind cause I let that hottie go.
But there are secrets about that woman that no friend would ever know.
See her cadence is off and her drum skips a beat,
I stayed way too long cause I like'em petite
There's a screw lose in her head. Can't believe the crazy things she said.

Listen –– She don't mean that much to me, no, no, hear what I say.
She don't mean that much to me, but please don't say her name.
She don't mean that much to me, oh, no, don't say her name.
She don't mean that much to me, So why you gotta cause me pain?

Very cool song
Nice progression and the 880EX seemed to keep the mix clean. Loved the guitars and the progression. Vocals are spot on. Enjoyed.

good, it is
catchy pop tune, with some nice turns of phrase which keeps it fresh even though the basic lyrical concept is quite traditional.
I think you did a great job recording on that Roland thing... it sounds great! acoustic strumming is v. well done. nice and punchy.

Great song
This is one of those "I can really feel your pain" songs. It just brings it all rushing back, no matter how long ago it happened. Ouch, and I mean that in the best way, but please don't say her name . . .
Great job,
Stephen

Pain indeed...
...But the pain was from my friends (one in particular). So the song is NOT about the ex-girlfriend -- it's about my friends who annoyed me by CONSTANTLY asking about my exes. So I wrote a song to reinforce to them that I'm not at all interested in hearing about or discussing these women once they're out of my life. As far as I'm concerned, they had their shot, it ended for whatever reason, and it's wrap! Nothing to see here people -- move along.

Thanks for listening Stephen.
