Lyrics
I was singing a song on a paved street
people singing and clapping hands
I guess I was feeling grand
Then you came along with a wink of your eye
stole my heart but to my surprise
ya put it right there with your own
and then you took them home

So Baby why did you love me
When I had got nothing
but love to give you
No I had got nothing but love to give

So I held you tight into the night
we kissed under the pale moonlight
soon bodies that tangled into one
had felt the morning sun
No I couldn't buy you no dimond rings
I couldn't afford them special things
All I had was my love to give
and you said that was all you'd need

So Baby why did you love me
When I had got nothing
but love to give you
No I had got nothing but love to give

I was laying cold on a side street
Rain came through the holes at my feet
I was scraping round for some thing to eat
and then you held my hand
you told me you would be my friend
stay with me till the very end
now where have you gone now my friend
Now I need you most

So Baby why did you leave me
When I had given all I had to give you
I'd given all I had to give you
Yes I'd given all I had to give

Nicely done. The tone of the lead gutar was a surprise but it worked for me! I like the vocal too - just a hint of Dylan which is good. In a few places the vocal suddenly pans to one side of the stereo field for a second. Not sure if thsi was intended but it messed my head up! Still going for the download though.
All the best

vocal panning?
that was not intended seems to be an artifact of the cubase5 auto tune? we sang live into 3 live mics and it seems to auto pan also I'm not sure why or if it actually does so but I am delighted you took the time to listen and comment. Sooner or later we will record properly (without pitch correction etc) Thanx

mystery solved re Vocal panning :-)
Been a while since I been on here sadly,had a few lets say adventures forced me into being both homeless and worse still guitarless Ahhhh all be well now days. :-) :-) have 4 nice guitars now including my bass..... But ANYWAY......

I was recently looking at taking the vocals out and discovered that vocals were comped from two different sets of takes some how when I was comping I moved the pan instead of volume on some takes and recorded it as automation??? strange indeed but the fact that I had mislabelled lead and background vocals hmmm might explain it :-O :-)

A Homer Simpson moment
:-)

Love the harmonies and the vocal panning was funky. You have a very original voice and it was great to listen to. The sound of the guitar is very nice too... well done.

Thanx
the vocal panning is a surprise to me I didn't plan or tell cubase to do it but it happened. I dont know how it happened but there was no deliberate auto pan etc involved I think it was a happy accident?
Thanx for taking the time to listen and comment

if a song
like this were on my radio i would never turn it off.a lot of the great strains of music meet here. there are echos of and developments from van morrisson phil spector and springsteen sung in that great god given voice that ''belongs to you and me''this is great songwriting and the whirlwind that is your voice burns on.......

Keep giving
I like the way the singing and playing roll along. I like the lyrics too - expressive! Neat guitar solo adds further interest. Much enjoyed!
