Description
A song about a guy who realizes that he wants his ex back.

I know that the timing isn't perfect on this one but I wanted to get something posted.Woody came over last weekend and layed down the vocals to a scratch track we had done earlier and I got in the studio yesterday and added the bass and guitars.

The next version of this song will probably have another verse and maybe live drums...Hope you enjoy.

Lyrics
In the darkness in our bedroom upstairs
It's the way I go to sleep every night for oh so long
Those memories of our love and the way it was before.

I believe in fairy-tales… a better love I've never felt
The truth is I'm lying to myself…truth is I lied when I said,
I don’t care anymore

Those shadows walking down the hall at night
It’s like a ghost I see every time I close my eyes
And though the phone don’t ring…I still hear your voice sometimes.

I believe in fairy-tales…a better love I've never felt
The truth is I'm lying to myself truth is I lied when I said,
I don’t care anymore

Anymore…I just don’t care anymore.

I'm not lying to myself!
This was really great JG! Very solid work; I got hooked by the melody, your lyrics as usual are downright poetic and pungent and your delivery of them both as singer and musician sold me very well on this bill of fare! I especially enjoy hearing you sing--you have a distinctive voice that's nice on the ear and you know how to use it to maximum effect. My only single suggestion would be to perhaps make the intro a little more sure--I know what you were going for and it sounds good, but maybe could be improved upon (?) Full marks to you for this--and thanks for the download too! Michael

I know what you mean about the intro.That was one of those things that I was going to go back and fix later but time ran out, and I didn't want to wait another week to post...So glad that you enjoy our music,,,it means so much.

Nicely done
popped right out of the toaster all golden and smokin' hot...awkward subject but probably more truth in it than folk realise......doesn't hafta be about just some one hankering after their ex could be any lovelorn or loss situation really...speaks volumes.....
Cheers ,Jarvoid

Lying to myself
Good sectional contrast. "I believe in fairy-tales" works as a prechorus, and the change over the truth (I think it is a key change) marks the chorus. Strong vocals and good guitar work.

thanke Dave
You always seem to appreciate the structure of my songs.That pre-chorus was no accident.It means a lot when people get what you're trying to do...That's why I love writing with Woody so much,he always seems to get it too.....Much appreciated man.

Nice to "hear" you back ... refreshing to hear this style of tune. Good melody and lyrics. Good playing ... 2:30-ish like the chorus and bridge ... Really like Woody's vocals
Love to hear a fat solo ... and turn that solid bass up a notch in the mix. Enjoyed!
Cheers

Magic.
Not sure what else to say; if this isn't finished then please finish it, it'll be a fine piece of work indeed if it's better than this. There seems to have been a rise in the number of tunes here lately that I start to download before they finish playing, and this was one such. Thanks for the download!
