Description
This is a song that I wrote the music for and my friend Corey wrote the lyrics. I sang it for my wife and she asked if I was having an affair, so I'm thinking the lyrics don't come across as they were meant. I will be working on some new lyrics but I thought I'd put it up for you to have a listen to.

If I Could
First off, really nice vocs and harmonies. Guitar sounds fine, and the simple bongo arrangement works here. I get why your wife thought you were having an affair - I'd be s'plainin real hard how my friend wrote these good lyrics!

Thanks
Thanks, I appreciate it. My wife was joking when she said that but after she said it I immediately heard what she meant. The song was supposed to be about dating and not wanting the date to end. I will be working on some new lyrics when I get time. With a 4 month old at home there's not a whole lot of time for that stuff though.

warm &
inviting. You have a real gift for song. The recording is super up front and clean. Unfortunate the Mrs got the wrong impression, its a lovely tune, sometimes the meaning can have several lifes

Cool
song, even if I'm no sure to understand really all the meaning (I'd like to read the lyrics), I'ts a beautiful melody. I like your vocals on this acoustic sound. Very nicely interpreted...

Thanks
Thanks, the lyrics, which again were not written by me :), were supposed to be about dating and not wanting the date to end. As I said, when I get time I'll be working on some new lyrics.

clear vocals and guitar
and reading the description made me smile. I'd have the same reaction. I always enjoy hearing you sing and play.

stopping time
pretty tune. hilarious about your wife. i had to explain that one too. "each song is like a short story love, it's fiction informed by life". anyway vocals are great, terrific harmonies on the chorus. percussions fits just right too. lastly really dig the lyrics, very honest and plainspoken, worthy of the tune.
