To good to be true

Description
A pop ballad written in the old C-Am-F-G loop with a few variations. The tune goes back to the 1980s, but the lyrics have been around the block a few times. I am still experimenting with GB so the result is not optimal. And I am a lousy keyboard player (guitar was always my instrument) which is evident since most of the tracks are laid down with a ION Key49 midi controller.

Lyrics
Talking
So easy and strong
Smiling
So light and so long
We might have seen it coming
But still we followed through
And miracles still happen
Too good to be true

Laughing
While treading on ice
Sharing
Discovery disguised
You moved so softly
I didn't know I knew
It could be so easy
Too good to be true

Rolling with the tide
Washed up on the shore
Stranded in the sand
Like driftwood to the core

Longing
The word and the pain
Dreaming
In love and in vain
A good woman's love is rare
Magic moments few
So no wonder now is
Too good to be true

Smooth
Easy flowing chord pattern sets up the warm lyrics. Heartfelt vocal delivery. I like the rhythm the guitar is playing - precise and with a good tone. Probably would have gone with a guitar lead instead of the synth, (but that may say more about me than it does about the song!) Much enjoyed.

Appreciate
your comments. Me too, I would prefer to play a proper lead guitar, rather than use the keyboard. But I still haven't managed to hook my stratocaster up to the computer to get a good sound. Could run it thru an amp and the mike of course, but am not so sure about that.

A nice lilting rhythm...not overproduced and certainly a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for sharing

And thank you...
...for listening. And I so indeed try not to overproduce although GB almost call for it. Per

Too Good
Lovely old school ballad. Feels a little like an old Tin Pan Alley tune. Well crafted lyric, and warm, laid back vocal. Enjoyed!

That's a great compliment
I always admired the Tin Pan Alley songwriters and in a way I am maybe more inspired by them than many of my contemporary singer songwriters. Anyway, thanks for listening. Per

To good to be true
I agree, has an old ballad feel with a hint of pop ... really smooth and silky. I could hear clean jazzy lead guitar in place of the synth. Like your lyrics. Enjoyed!
Cheers
