Wonder If

Description
This song is really about regret, but I set it in a tragic love story. I kept it very simple: two guitar parts, percussive guitar whacks, a shaker, and a vocal line.

Lyrics
Walking down a crowded avenue
Sun is out, the sky is blue
I hear a voice, I think of you
Are you thinking of the way things used to be?
I wonder if you think of me.
Wonder if
Wonder if
Wonder if

There's a scene unfolding in my mind
Set within is a simpler time
When I knew your love was mine
But that scene dissolves then
I see you walk away
Was there something I should say
I Wonder if
Wonder if
Wonder if

Time heals everything they say
But I'm still waiting on that day
I know that it is wrong
Too hold on for so long
Wondering if
Wondering if
Wondering if

Enjoyed..
Very pleasing tune and presentation - not too much, just right. I hear some James Taylor influence. Well done!

Not too much is right. I had this song and I wanted to get it out, so I sat down and did it without too much thought to production.

Thank you for your comments. There are a couple of min7b5 chords in there that give it some color and tension. I'm glad you liked it.

Real nice song....
I'm sure you work at this, because it is so well done....
Feels real good lyrically and your playing is top shelf ....
Your voice sounds like Jame Taylor but that's OK cause
he's one of the best in my book...

Well Done....

Thank you so much for your kind words. Of course you can't be from my generation and not be influenced by Sweet Baby James. Another guy from that era that I really like is Stephen Bishop.

Joy!
This is a lovely song. Beautifully played and recorded. Evokes the feeling of a city in spring time and being lost in your own thoughts in the crowd.
The structure is perfect, lovely chorus, nice lift and just over 3 mins.

Yes, that was how I imagined this in my mind...a feeling of regret or remorse that might come over you out of the blue, as it were. I am very glad you liked it.

So sad
Well, this song brings back a lot of emotions and memories for me.
Wish I could play this one to an old friend of mine.
So sad, but so nice. Thanks.

Yeah, it's a bit of a downer...but I think a little bit of sadness once and a while is OK.

Classic 70s singer/songwriter vibe! Strong writing and performance. Sweet recording. The guitars and vocal are beautiful.

Yes, most definitely a 70's vibe on this. I grew up listening to that music, so I guess its subliminal :-)

I just got done listening to your latest, Ice Wind. It's cold this morning where I live, so Ice Wind was rather appropriate. Brrrr..

The shaker and acoustic guitar fit we'll together. The progression and melody are fantastic and your vocal delivery is outstanding.

Simple arrangement but very, very effective.
Doesn't feel like anything's lacking.
I like the chord changes of the D to Bm to Csharp7, Fsharp minor to B ( sorry, when I hear a good chord sequence I've got to try and work it out :-))
Your vocals have a touch of Cat Stevens and even Macjams own Hackneybloke about them.
Really nice tune.
cheers

I appreciate your comments. Thanks for wandering in for a listen and thanks for taking a crack at the chord changes; I like to do that too. The chord changes I used in that section were

Dmaj7->G#m7b5->C#7->F#m7->Ebm7b5->Dmaj7

I really like Cat Stevens, so any comparison to him is high praise.

Cheers,
Tom

I think this is the first song of yours I have listened to, Tom. Glad I have. You have a very engaging vocal style and the simple guitar and percussion accompaniment works a treat with the reflective lyrics and subtle melody. Quality post. Thanks, Peter.

I love recordings that hit you and pull you in right from the start. This is one such piece. Everything fits- the voice - the playing, shades of Javetta Steele's 'I am calling you'. Excellent music and very much enjoyed.

Beautiful song, without being cliche. Not an easy thing to do.
Laying your emotions out there, that's where songs are the most real.
And you lay it out there. Bravo!
