Don't Stay Away

Having just got a USB digital interface and Sonar I tried to record my first song. Things have got to improve once I've found out to use Sonar properly and learnt to sing! This is about being away from home and missing your loved one.

I've been gone just a few short hours my darling
But the clock it's told me all I need to know
That time spent away from you is time I cannot spare
So I won't stay away too long
For time won't wait my dear

In this place I can find no rest my darling
The room is quiet but still I cannot sleep
When thoughts of you do ease mind more than dreams can do
So please be in my dreams my love
And I will sleep tonight

Morning comes around again my darling
The rain clouds tell me all I need to know
That days spent away from you are days that I'll forget
But then I see the sun shine through
To light my way back home

Everyone's going somewhere else in this town
But for me the road will lead me back to you
And it's there I hope you'll say the words I love to hear
That you miss me while I'm gone
Until I hold you tight again my dear

beautiful song (the 2nd I've heard) - excellent chords - great avante-garde 60's feel to your music,would be looking next to Belle & Sebastian/Drake/Nico on the shelf - if I still went into record shops that is.

I see you sing - very pleasant voice.I'm really enjoying this.Regards - Rich

fingerpicking laid back andd dreamy ...not usually my flavour but this is'nt schmaltzy or saccharin as some
songs of this style can be ,it is more pleasant and restful....oh but it ends a bit abrupt!!

Enjoyable listen .........Jarvoid

Love playing acoustic guitar especially in open tunings (CFCFCF being my favourite). Every so often I’ll have a go with my electric guitar and even more rarely try to sing. Fan of Bert Jansch, Beatles, Ralph Mctell, Mark Knopfler, Nick Drake etc. ... [see more]
