Never Wanna Cry (live)

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a song I wrote in 2004. I was reflecting on my past with my parents divorce and all that has lead me to the point I am at now (or at least when i wrote it). I wasn't going to post this until i re-recorded it, but a live version is always good too. It was recorded through a digital camcorder at a local "Idol" competition I guest starred at. The qulaity isn't the greatest but oh well..enjoy!

Never Wanna Cry
©Aaron Polley 2004

Verse 1

Broken in my heart

Two worlds torn apart

I was wrapped up in pain

Not sure where to go

Shown down many roads

I couldn't seem to make up my mind

Pre-Chorus (once only)

Was I to choose

A love I had always known

Was I to choose

The place I always called my home


I never wanna' cry

I never wanna' cry

I'm never gonna' cry

No more...

Verse 2

And came judgement day

A new rule set the way

It changed my life

Eight years are over now

Please someone tell me how

I have reached this day


How could I know

That this time would shape me

Rest me on to a better course

How could I know

It would re-arrange me

And leave me calling for more

Mellow and bittersweet!
Although the live-sound is a bit crappy in this case you`re a very talented singer. Hope your next song will be clearer so all the MJers can enjoy your wonderful, mellow voice.

great song
Nice writing and your performance is excellent, particularly your smooth,
emotive singing. This definately deserves to be rerecorded properly. You
could add more to the arrangement and let it build up a little; nothing too
complicated. Maybe layer in a little light percussion, bass, and maybe
one other thing (mandolin, accordion, piano, ?). Simple works nicely for
this song. Most importantly, get it recorded nicely. This live recording
gets the idea across and I can certainly tell it's a good song but it really
sounds bad like this. I bet it sounded great to the audience in the room

I can't wait to hear the "studio" version.

great song
Thanks for your comments. I'm going to be picking up a mic stand this week so I can start doing proper vocals with my imac. I'll start working on the studio version of this and other songs as soon as I can. I totally agree that this is a piece where simplicity is an advantage, and as it was only first performed with my guitar and my voice it is a testiment to that fact.

Be Jammin Soon!

Looking forward...
You certainly set a mood with this piece, Aaron. You've obviously got
talent and a great voice.

Like everyone else, I can't wait to hear a song of yours properly recorded.
Bring us more material, and please include a re-recorded version of this
song. You will do big things here.
