Description
I wrote and recorded the chord structure for this song a few years back and posted it here as 1:00am. Unfortunately I lost the project files for that one when my Powerbook bit the dust. Char wrote most of these lyrics for me. The vocals definitely need more work. I was able to lay this down pretty quick.

Lyrics
Isla, girl, you were the love of my life.
Now, you are gone. You're someon else's wife.
I've seen you in town and I've searched for your face.
You looked happy I sure hope tha's the case.

How can I feel this joy and pain?
How can I get in out of the rain?
If I could stand it, i'd stay
Please, look my way

Sad song
Nice job.

I'd say turn down the reverb on the guitar somewhat. It sounds like it's being played in a bathroom... On my system the vocals have some mid frequencies that are too prominent. I'd apply an EQ to that.

Take two?

Will do!
I'm going to totally re-record the vocals with more presence anyway.

Very sweet
and sad, too. Are you doubling the voice for the chorus? I guess I'd just do that solo, keep that totally lonely feeling. I read that you're rerecording, so that would take care of the vocal presence. Simple, yet touching (meant in the best way) lyrics.

Thank you kristyjo
I will try the chorus solo with the new vocal pass. Thanks for the listen and compliment.

Keep 'em coming
The one thing I keep saying about your music is the strong emotion that it invokes. I must sound like a broken record, but I really enjoy the vocal and instrumental and the overall emotion of this song. Very nice.

Nice Lyrics, too!
I forgot to give props to Char for the lyrics, nice work!

This is nice ....
... I have always been a sucker for anything acoustic ... I agree with some earlier comments that the vocals could be pushed a little up front more .... and naughty naughty Char for not sharing this with me

Mike,
When you get a chance, please do a new version with the extra lyrics, if you like them. Such a nice tune. It deserves more.
