Lyrics
The days were long and the nights were cold
But I’m feeling strong
So far to go I’m on my own
But I know the way
But I have to say I want it that way
I have to say I need it that way

The tales you told in days of old
Have gone away
There’s you and me and we had to be
Just make believe
But I have to say you want it that way
I have to say you need it that way

The lonely man has shelter now
In some city place
He’s travelled far that I can tell
By his weary face
And I have to say he wants it that way
I have to say he needs it that way

The days were long and the nights were cold
But I’m feeling strong
Far to go I’m on my own
And I know the way
But I have to say I need it that way
But I have to say I need it that way

Lonely Man
A fine song Bob, well sung, played and well produced. Your vocal and solo in the bridge stand out as very solid. Good dynamic contrasts throughout. I really enjoyed the listen and have downloaded a version - with thanks!

I
had this piece of music for a while Vic and it was all done and dusted but with no lyrics, I was having problems writing something for it.
I don't normally do two versions of the same song but 'The Lonely Man' lyrics fitted very well and I was pleased with the end result so this to me became a better version.
Pleased you liked it, thanks for the kind comments.

Fine song, Bob. Good to hear it given full reign with this pro sounding mix. Guitars, drums and bass all sound great. Impressive dynamics and clarity, as Vic said. Very high quality post. Thanks. Take care.

Lonely
Like the guitar in this, very reflective great singing like when the drums come in and the way you broke up the composition the tom toms add the heaviness it needs great rocking song

Dang
you sound 20 years younger for some reason! Sure would love to hear this in full quality, but my motherboard recent fried and all I have is my laptop speakers. Still, the song itself is tops as expected. Great choice for the stark arrangement, I feel.

Thanks Philip
I've not been able to record anything new lately so it was good to get this new version of an old number posted although it was not my intention originally, still trying to stay active on Macjams :-)
Thanks for the listen and comments, appreciate them.

Damn good tuneage!
Love the tone on your guitar. It grabbed my right out of the gate.

The arrangement works well for your story-teller vocal delivery.

Solo sections are beautiful. especially the second one. WOW!

Three thumbs up!

Be well friend!

It's
always good to hear from you Mike, thanks for the listen and I'm pleased to hear you liked this little number :-)
It's good to have you posting songs here at Macjams again, I enjoy hearing them.
All the best and thanks for your kind comments, I appreciate them.

I love
to be in the company of good musicians who also happen to be nice people. How could I stay away?

I think we here tend to inspire each other to push ourselves forward, and have the courage to try different things. At least I'm inspired by much of what I hear at Macjams.

Again, "three thumbs" (don't ask...)

Excellent recording vocals and production. The tone of the guitar is very smooth and there is lots of dynamic contrast to keep it interesting right to the end. Top notch song. Cheers Mark

I can feel
the echo of loneliness in the vocals very convincing! nice transition with the cleans sounding and distorted guitars between the verses.
