A song written by Gordy Macdonald for his band Side Project. A while a go I took a stab at recording a version in my typical style and this was result. Felt like posting it for some comments.

He doesn't want to cry
As she walks away
He wipes his eyes anyway

She doesn't want a false goodbye
Not today
She turns and waves anyway

He takes her hand and says
Everything's ok
But he knows it's not the same

She tries to smile at him
But cannot find a way
To make it seem she doesn't care


"What am I supposed to do with myself"
He said, "when even angels cry?"
I'm just a man, I'm nothing more than all my promises and lies.
And I want you here (tonight).

Another door has closed
Just as he walked in
He cracks a smile and walks away

Although that door is closed
There is another way in
And he'll be back another day

Promises & Lies
The lyric feels real to me, and the melody is pretty. Playing is tight, vocals are strong, and production is good. I think the song could be stronger if it didn't take so long to get to the first chorus. Some lyrics over the bridge would help too.
