Description
My dearest of friends writes poetry, and thought that these lyrics would be a great song. I happened to agree so I put it to music (with her permission of course.) I do not know the reason for such words, however I take them with much respect. KMS.

Lyrics
I Won't Turn My Back On You
Lyrics by :Donna Storm
Music by :Kelly Mark Smith
Sung by :Kelly Mark Smith

He turns his back on you,
because his faith and love aren't real.
He turns his back on you,
he only wants control,
Doesn't care what you feel.

I won't turn and walk away,
because of what you're going through.
I won't turn my back on us,
I won't turn my back on us,
I won't turn my back on you.

I won't tell you where to go,
I don't judge the pain that you feel.
I'll just sit next to you,
I'll sit right next to you,
and let you take control of the wheel.
I won't turn and walk away,
because of what you're going through.
I won't turn my back on us,
I won't turn my back on us,
I won't turn my back on you.

My heart aches for the pain in your heart,
my heart breaks when I see your tears.
I won't turn and walk away,
because of what you're going through.
I won't turn my back on us,
I won't turn my back on us,
I won't turn my back on you.

Nice rock ballad Kelly
You were right about this poem making a great song and you did a great job of capturing the feeling on the poem in the music and vox you did for it. Nice guitar licks and drum work, and the music just seems to fit perfectly. Great track Kelly.

Too True
The lyric could be all too many of my wife's friend's situation. The music gives good emphasis and reality to the lyric. A good match.

Nice job Kelly and Donna,
Stephen
