Description
I'm experimenting with restraint--just vocal, guitar, and Logic's version of an upright bass--let me know if it worked.

Lyrics
If you don’t love me like I think that you should
Thought that you would
Wished that you could
If you don’t want me like I think you should
I guess I should be getting on my way

But I’ll miss Florida
I’ll miss LA
I’ll miss those places
We used to play
I’ll miss the summertime
I’ll miss the spring
I’ll miss Florida
I’ll miss everything

If you don’t love me like you were loving me then
Some other time
Way back when
If you don’t know me like you were knowing me then
I guess I should expect that I'd be sad

But I’ll miss Florida
I’ll miss your dad
I’ll miss those happy times
I thought we had
I’ll miss your funny laugh
I’ll miss my ring
I’ll miss Florida
I’ll miss everything

Restraint is a good thing...
...especially when it supports lyrics like these. You really knocked this one out of the park.

Fav'd.

Cheers,
Jim

Peaceful!
Even though the lyrics is a little sad, for me it seems as if the memories of good times makes it a peaceful good-old-times tune :)
Liked it!

Thanks for all the nice comments
Glad I didn't end up adding the horn section and Latin percussion:)

Is it me, or is Logic's "Studio Upright Bass" EXS24 sample really realistic? (I just relistened to this track and I was pleasantly surprised how un-computery it sounded.)

this is beautiful
man, you've got something here. your vocal sounds fantastic throughout and your guitar is well-captured (how are you recording it?)
by the way, the bass sounds good and is well suited to the tune. it might be a little rigid sounding though, have another look at the velocities of the notes maybe.
