Recording information by samiam171GOLD

As I was writing this, I was thinking about a friend who recently went through an acrimonious divorce. One day her husband came to her and said, "You know what? I don't love you anymore." That's what got me started thinking about the disappointment that comes with failed relationships and the knowledge that no amount of fixing could possibly make YOU right for THAT person. So... singular, designated state of mind? Disappointment.

Leave Me Alone
`
Why am I your ragdoll, Honey, when it's you who can't
make up your mind?
You're always moving, yeah, you're always fighting. What is it that
you hope to find?
No one will ever be enough for you.
`
Why don't you try tugging just a little harder, Babe; Something
just might break.
And it'll be me picking up the pieces off the floor tomorrow -
Never you.
Why am I 'just another thing that you do'?
`
Just once,
I wanna wake up on my own.
Why don't you leave me alone?
`
Now you tell me that it breaks your heart just a little to see me
walk away.
You wave your arms, tell me that I've made a mistake; That soon
I'll be back for more.
You scream: What are you looking for?
`
Just once,
I wanna wake up on my own.
Please leave me alone.
`
(Guitar solo)
`
Just once,
I wanna wake up on my own.
Please leave me alone.
`
Thank God we've both been allowed this chance to find
a brand new start.
'Cause pouring all of me right into you, Babe, could never
heal our hearts.

There is NO denying the incredible amount of talent you have and you have showcased that talent beautifully here. Your lyrics are brilliant, the melody line is unique and fresh, and your harmonies meshed perfectly. Simply stunning sweets...

This is superlative!!...your gently yearning vocals with harmony are the purest quality...and the backing track suits your lyrics and melody. Or maybe it's the other way around.

It's a wistful song with a flowing rhythm....what can I say? You're very gifted, that's clear.

Sorry not much listening. Trying to learn Windows 10 and still wrestling with syncing my recordings.

Ohhhhh, Stef, I hope you sent this link to the band. I know I'm going to send it to Trevor. You have so much talent. I know they will love this as much as I do.
