This Time It's For Real

my attempt to compose and sing an unashamedly romantic song from another era - developed over the last month or so but I recorded everything last sunday when I had the house to myself

thanks for listening

When you fall - in love with someone
You’ll never know where it comes from
A bolt from the blue

Then you’ll find - you’re never alone in a crowd
You just want to sing it out loud
‘cos she’s on your mind

Until then - you wonder - why me?
Who’s been waiting so long in the dark
Do I dare to believe - what my heart
Is telling me today

When you meet someone - who gives you a reason to be
Who opens your mind so you see
Through the eyes of a child
When you’re with someone - who makes - your heart skip a beat
Who makes every day so complete
Affirming your place

In dreams- from some cave of despair
I climbed ladders and stairs- to emerge
In a sunlit roof garden for two
As a gift from me to you

When you need someone –and know that you can’t live without …
Their love - and there’s really no doubt
This time - it’s for real

unusual in a good way
1st... I think the orchestration behind is excellent... certainly the right way to frame this... but I really enjoyed the vocal melody and meter... it has the illusion of weightlessness...

hey... when you're in love you're walking on air

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
