Description
Another one of those songs that has been hanging around for a couple of years that I finally finished. Completely re-wrote the chorus and part of the verses. Still not sure if it is really finished but here it is and on to the next one.

Lyrics


D G D
I loved you like the Angel of the Morning
D G A
I loved you until the stars fell from the sky
D G D
I loved you so hard that I was broken
D A G D
And when I looked around you were gone without a trace

D G D
They said you were crystal, linen and lace
D G A
Your eyes were diamonds set deep in your face
D G D A G D
And if I didn’t love you, I couldn’t survive and you would be gone without a trace

D G D
I was like leather, cracked and torn
D G A
My lips were twisted, riddled with scorn
D G D A G D
If I didn’t change, I’d look around and you would be gone without a trace

chorus
Bm F#m Bm F#m
But there is always tomorrow, and there will be a new day
Bm F#m G A D
The stars will still be in the sky and you can find your place in the sun


Every memory you left is a reminder
Of everything that we should have been
But there’s no way to return to the past
So I just sit and sing this song

That feeling
Gawd, you are in fine voice here, Tom. Powerful, convincing singing.

That new chorus really nails it down as finished. It's funny how some songs get written like this. We know they are incomplete and they just sit around and then one day - boom - the right words appear and it finalizes it. And ain't that a great feeling?

Thanks Warren!
Breathing better lately. Maybe singing is actually helping that. Yeah, it was a good feeling to finally get this one done. Running out of old ones to put new lipstick on. Now I will have to start writing some new ones again..

true to the singer/songwriter format. the song swims nicely along

My lips were twisted, riddled with scorn"

What a classic sound you have here. Woody Guthrie comes to mind with the full throated vocal and subject matter. Nice work

I love to play guitar. I have been writing songs for many years and have a large catalog by this time. Songwriting is easy. Writing great songs is hard! Born in Louisiana and live in Texas. I grew up on Chuck, Jerry Lee, Elvis, Ricky, Little Richard ... [see more]
