Lyrics
In the shade


I didn't stay because i loved you
I didn't stay because i cared
The reason i didn't leave you
was because i didn't dare

So i stayed because i needed you
Always hiding in the shade
Shrinking deep inside me
Letting my life fade

Somehow i strayed
Into the shade

Resenting how you talked to me
Resenting what you said
Watching you, awake at night
Two strangers in one bed

I didn't know how it came to be
I rellay loved you very much
Always wanted to be near you
Your kiss, your smile, your touch

Somehow i strayed
Into the shade

Then it all came to a stop
You packed and said goodbye
And now i sit here missing you
Still dark and i don't know why

I wish i could cry

echoes of XTC
(is that band still around?)

Nice backing on this piece. I'm not sure about all the
reverb in the vocals. Makes the lyrics harder to pick up
without reading them.

Nice keyboards & guitar.

Must be my senses workin overtime ;)
Maybe You´re right regarding the vocals. I wanted that "roomy" feeling, but maybe i overdone it a bit. I also had trouble getting the bass on a sensible level...
Thanks again for your vote and comment, much appreciated!

robert smith/XTC/tears for fears/simple minds. the drum

excellent sound
Thanks. Well i suppose I'm a product of the 80's. Trouble is i think more good music were made during the 70's. So i might have to back up a little :)
Drums are Jam Pack 3, tweaked and twisted.
Thanks for the input, much appreciated!

Worth the wait
Very cool song, Al. Borders on Prog Rock. Liked the way
this was laid out with the organ and vox.

The ironic lyrics are probably the coolest part of the song!

Thanks! Not a lot of listeners bother with the lyrics, i think.
But i do like spending some time writing them. Kind of a rock'n'roll substitution for the famous poet i never became (because i can't write poetry).
Thanks again for your input, it's very much appreciated, especially coming from an artist like yourself.
