Description
We have not composed or produced any new songs for quite some time now, it's been a while but just recently we've been working on several new songs. This is one of them, it's a slow blues number and after a long absence from the music room this came together quite quickly.

Bob: Guitars/Bass
Des: Lyrics/Vocals

Lyrics
Don’t Let Me Down

If you look at me like that
Will I survive?
Or will I die if you pass me by
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Let me shelter in those eyes
Don’t need no excuses or alibis
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Broken and bent, I need you
You’re the only one that can see me through

Maybe I can help you too
Maybe I could be good for you
And when it’s getting late
Maybe I can carry your weight
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Oh come on baby
Let’s give it a try
You know you’re not going nowhere
Together we can fly
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Ih Yeah, this was worth the wait.
Love the simple clean arrangement. Vocals and lyrics are well done and just gritty enough to be believable. Guitar tone is outstanding on the lead parts as is the sparse approach. They leave the listener, (me) wanting more and listening carefully so as not to miss any of the wonderful little nuances in the playing.

Excellent throw guys, ya done good here, real good. This ones going in rotation on the iPod for sure.

Thanks for the D/L

Smooooth
Love the sparseness of the whole arrangement. Like Ed pointed out - it makes you pay all the more attention to the well executed details!

Great recording/production and I really love both the vocals and the guitar tone.

Hmm... seems I'm just repeating my fellow MJers' comments...
...oh, well - they're all true, so why wouldn't I?

Great work!

kin' el Bob this is fantastic - Des sounds wonderful and your guitar just sings. Those drums are so, so real and the bass just perfect. This is just an amazing song, third listen and downloading.
I can imagine this as backing to a really moody film, Black & White and Raining. Superb, love it.
Cheers
