Description
Just working on some other projects and had a sudden urge to write this down. It started as discussions on the poor people in our world, then evolved to work in many instances with different relationships.

It's ultimately a song describing realization of neglect and a want to move ahead, in a good way!

I haven't done any music for awhile. But I think I'm ok with the direction of this one.

Enjoy!
Doug

Lyrics
Don't Leave

Oh please don't leave
I see your needs
Next day things change
Again


You know I care
Time got away
For me to be there
Again


I didn't mean to run
Easy, let things ride
The cloud will shroud the sun
Again


We can be free
Just like our dreams
Sunlight will blaze
Again

I love the acoustic tone and electric volume swells. Creates a great atmosphere. The gently waltz pulse is nice as are the lyrics. Good to hear form you again.

Sound check...
......the track is muffled here and VERY low in general volume. I tried rebooting, but with the same result. You may wish to check that out.

Sorry
Thanks for the heads up! I've had some issues getting volume from Garageband. I turned off "Auto Normalize" because I know I had a few unrepaired clips that would inevitably affect the mix. I just turned up the volume on my computer. That's what I have. It does sound ok turned up, though. I'm still learning. :)

I think the intimate approach to the vocals sets this apart from most ballady tunes. There's a real sincerity coming across. Takes courage to put yourself out there like that, but the piece is all the better for it. Very nicely done. Playback level sounds fine here btw.

Thank you Les
Vocals have been a focus for me lately. It seems that we are all trying to express ourselves through music, so why not express? Thank you for your kind words!

This was my first attempt singing with myself... manual track doubling, so to speak. I switched up my track order, too. I also wanted just guitar and voice. Thanks for your kindness!

Nice Acoustic Guitar
Enjoyed the relaxed feel. To the point lyrics and a fine vocal delivery. Fitting lead and the reverberated guitar in the background adds to the feel. Thanks for sharing, thoroughly enjoyed.

I dig the cadence and chord progression you have here; your vocals fit the mood very well and carry the remorse.

I wish I could have such
creative diversionary thoughts ....mine usually take me down a blind alley ! But it is strange how you seem to get not just one idea at a time but a whole raft of them....and then other times ,nada...nice song ,like the tones on the acoustic particularly and the electric aint half bad either....

Cheers

What you've done here is very engaging.
You break a mould here. It's more like a musical poem. A strong sense of immediacy almost impro. Good one.

Thanks for your words. You can always tell when you're on a roll when you get that certain feeling. I wish I would have recorded the original I worked on in the living room... I had quite choked myself up!

The waltz time, atmospherics, guitar picking and simple beauty of this one make it special. Vox are great. I thought the production was right on. Downloaded.

Don't Leave
Hi Doug ... good to see you and hear you. And thanks for bringing this wonderful tune to my attention. A heartfelt song with the very distant electric complimenting the crystal clear acoustic. The electric gives it that ethereal feel. Lots of passion in your vocals... nice one!

I find it amazing that you conceived this in your head spontaneously. It's not really that simple, and so I am wondering what was running through your head that you grabbed ahold of and put down..... Melody or guitar riff? Usually when I have something in my head aching to get recorded it is one or the other. Either a riff or a melody. This is well done, and I'm curious what part of this were you mulling over and needing to put down. Very interesting and deep. Good amount of thought and emotion here I am picking up on... Love it!

Hi Freddy!
I was working on some music for a middle and senior high group I had been working with and needed a break. I knew at a certain point of strumming that I was heading in a good direction. I blended the basic progression with recent conversational topics then tweaked the progression. I got a little emotional with it. I'm not even sure I had the same melody by the time I made it to my studio, days later. The rest was like throwing spaghetti to the wall to see what would stick... Jackson Pollack style arrangement, throwing instruments and styles onto tracks. I had originally put three part harmonies throughout only to pull them out until the bridge. Even then, I'm not completely happy with them. Life is too short. The guitar break took five minutes to figure out, then messed up once, but kept it, knowing life is short.

Thank you for your comments and support!

Cool
I really like the guitar sounds, effects and tones. Has that great guitar swell sound in the background that I find especially tasty. I also like how you sing the parts, the phrasing so to speak. I enjoyed this tune. Lyrics are moving. Great stuff.

Thanks Drew
During recording, I had to tell myself to be patient with the phrasing and make sure the ideas blend just right. Rest in just the right spot changes the meaning. Thanks for the comment!

Strummed acoustic sounds great, and the tone chosen for the electric complements it well. The plaintive vocals bring out the emotion in the lyric.

Enjoyed...
The guitar work is great. I like these mellow kind of strumming pieces. And the pace of the vocals fit perfectly. I also dug the second guitar part in the background, it added to the ambiance and mood. Great job!
