Description
I wrote this arrangement on the piano, and posted it as a collaboration project, and my pal Leo Roese, grabbed it up and wrote lyrics and a melody to it and sung. Smashing job, which I felt suited the melencholy feeling I had to this to a tee! I hit up my friend Moose, to see if he could do some weeping guitar. Well he made us all cry along with it. Lastly my pal Pete Romanowski did the bass for me. Hope you all like it.


Leo.Roese - Owner/author melody & lyrics - lead & backing vocals
Moose - Lead guitar, production
Peter Romanowski (Europica) - Electric bass guitar
Freddy - Owner/author arrrangement- drums, piano, synth, rhythm electric guitar, mix/master

Lyrics
Once you tried
To be a part of my life
But how could I let you escape and
become the falling star of my dreams

You must be wondering how I can resist something so beautifull as you
and this love that grows inside of me like never before
you are knocking on my DOOR once again

I wish you were here in this moment of fear of living alone for the rest of my days
and I just want to have you now in this cold afternoon
Under the spell of the moon

I never learned about the love
But I can tell you what is missing
In my life in my soul
In the deepest of the abyss like a gray heart of stone
That beats no more

You were, you are
You?ll always be the one I?ll keep inside and carry on,
not only for a day or a year
but my entire life
And I?ll remember everytime I look behind
You were, you are
Like tear drops from the angels in the sky
The love of mine

about this cold afternoon
about this cold afternoon
Here in the cold

Now I know the reason
The reason why I lost my time and the chance to stay with you
For all my life

You were, you are
You?ll always be the one I?ll keep inside and carry on,
not only for a day or a year
but my entire life
And I?ll remember everytime I look behind
You were, you are
Like tear drops from the angels in the sky
The love of mine

Afternoon
Beautiful bright piano followed by equally bright, warm vocal. Stunning lead guitar. Sweet harmony vocal. Love the solo at the 2 min mark. Tasteful drums (love it when they kick in a bit harder a couple of times). Sad song well performed. Production is excellent. Great work from all involved!

He wasn't happy with it Stan.
Believe it or not. leo and I both oozed love for his work and he just didn't like it. It's EXACTLY what I asked him for. He said he reworked his amp and guitar since this because he didn't like it. What ya gonna do? I guess it's true a lot of times with people who do genious things. Moose is like that. I mean everyone liked it, except him.... I asked him to make the gtr cray and that's what he did as far as i can tell... He is great! So are you Stan. Same type of thing except you KNOW you are great right?

Loob Baby
What melody is defined by man! Perfect summertime piece so very soothing and soulful. Takes me to a Late 70's groove which are my favorites. A time when music was innovative and real. Sing it Leo! One of my favorite songs heard here at MJ and that's saying a lot! Guit down Loob make it sing baby! Too cold and give "THe Drummer Some More!"

I was feeling this way on that April Day Ricky
As a lot of decent music is borne out of strife, and emotion. It was a particularly hard time in my life. Leo seemed to tune into that. Maybe that's why Leo and I are best writing and collabing friends. Doesn't matter that he is in Brazil and me in The US, and he is half my age. Music transcends all of that. This song is proof.

Good track!
Nice performance. Was this recorded and mixed in garage band? the final mix has a bit much high-end EQ; the snare gets flattened and the hihat is hot. some high-end roll-off and a mid-boost would warm up the track.

We actually made it crisp on purpose.
Especially the piano. I had a piano timbre in there and Moose sent me his wanting it to be crisp. I plugged it into my midi that I had sequenced, and this was the result. Thanks for the feedback.

Very, very fine post
Really nice piano lines kick this off, Freddy and Leo has done a fine job putting your tune to words. Melancholy but oh so inviting. Quality sound! One of your best mixes, in my opinion, Freddy. Moose and Peter's contributions are integral. Very, very fine post. Kudos to all, Peter.

it made me cry
And I talking seriously, chill on my spin.... love how the song grows up from the beggining to the end, that big piano with these silences... superb performance and production, i found that everything suits perfectly, wich is not easy never. The voice, these harmonies... this kind of voice is one of the reasons why I sing too. Powerfull lead guitar, man. The bass drives the song perfectly. Maybe I'm too sensible, but I envy songs like this one. One of my favorites for sure. Thank you for this unexpected gift "... in this cold afternoon..."

Nice collab
You can kind of tell by listening how the song progressed from the piano piece. A top notch job by all involved, it has a Beatle-ish vibe to it. Clean mix, love it!

Great collab by this all-star band. Overall vibe reminds me of the Beatles. Piano is really pretty and the weeping George Harrison style guitar fits perfectly. Strong vocals & harmonies.
