The final version - thanks for peoples previous comments, really appreciated.

This is entirely done on Garageband - my first time with Garageband '08, and I am pretty impressed with the sound quality.

I remember way back way back when
You and I were barely even friends
The occasional hi, the odd goodbye, to you

But over time I felt something change
That smile of yours could never keep me far away
And now ev’ry hello makes the corners of my mouth rise

And I, I want you now I want you near me
And I, need you next to me

Like two children playing in the sand
One of us too scared to take the others hand
So we'd talk and we'd play, but we'd never quite say the truth
The truth is that I want to be with you
No matter where you are, you're always on my mind
Cause your lips and your eyes and your smile are the best I've known

And I, I can't think straight I can't think clearly
Cause you, mean that much to me

And I, I want you here I want you near me
Cause you are the one for me

So come, come to my arms so we can stare into the sky
So come, come lay next to me

And I, I want you here so we can play into the night
Cause you, mean that much to me

So I, I'm waiting here for you to come home
And you, can stand next to me

Wonderful song writing and your delivery is exceptional. You have a very good voice Anton and you use it with a lot of feeling and expression.

The backing track are good, but your choice of percussion was distracting me as I listened to the song. There were parts that were clicking and clacking at times, and it made it hard to understand some of what you were singing.

Please don't get me wrong, I love the song as you sang it and the other instrumentation was very well done. I only mention this because the song is such a great work, that could only be made better by removing the distraction and replacing it with something a little more subtle.

Great work here Anton, thank you for sharing it. This goes to my iPod, at least until you bring out the next version anyway.

Be well and stay cool man,

very creative
I liked the use of small snippets of instruments to create the overall melody.
Little snippets of keyboards and accordion.
Nicely put and together and composed
thank you

RnB/Pop at it's best...
One of my favorites on MacJams so far. Excellent songwriting. Can't wait until the rest of the world is exposed to your music.

Love the mellow vibe created on this one. Very impressed with your background vocal arrangement. Looking forward to more.
