Haven't been writing a lot--Here is the latest--a little rough!

RUNNING AWAY
© 2018 Mackie Humphries

Leaving you girl is killing me
All the love that used to be
I can’t forget the love we had
I never meant to treat you bad

Feeling your love slip thru the night
Try to hold you until daylight
Windshield wipers make that sound
Like my tear drops a falling down

Running away from love we had
Tradin’ away the good for bad
Running away from your sweet love
Running away……Running away……Running away……

Can’t turn 'round now it’s too late
All I have left is one heartache
Now I’m sorry for my mistakes..for my mistakes

Running away from love we had
Tradin’ away the good for bad
Running away from your sweet love
Running away……Running away……Running away……

Leaving you girl is killing me
All the love that used to be
I can’t forget the love we had
I never meant to treat you bad

Running away from love we had
Tradin’ away the good for bad
Running away from your sweet love
Running away……Running away……Running away……

Hi Mackie:

Good to see and hear another song-post from you. Love the story line and the emotion the song's words and melody invoke. You are very close and I haven't had time to even begin to offer suggestions... but it needs something. Possibly a chord change in the repeated phrase, "Running Away"... (maybe even a rhyming phrase to replace repetiveness)...and a little experimentation on your part will eventually resolve that... but I'm sure liking what I'm hearing. Best of luck with it. ----Dave

Brother Mackie,
Another expressive heart breaker, here.
Love the energy in the chorus.

Something about the transition from the verse to chorus sticks out (maybe that's the rough part you're talking about)
but man... I think you're on to something really special here.

Great to hear that soulful Mackie sound smile

Hi Mackie. Welcome back.
You have all the bones and the riffs are good.

Needs syncing up.

Dave--

Thanks for lending your ear for a listen--I agree this one needs some help from my JPF friends--This is probably as good as I can do it with my playing and equipment--I listen to you, cause you have been at it a while too. I thought about a rata-tat drum and passing chord, too isolate the chorus--or maybe even start with a portion of the chorus.

Thanks for your input!

Mackie

I appreciate your critique--This one could use some of your transition soul as a lift!

Since had a PACEMAKER implanted a few months ago, I'm beginning to want to write again!

Your last song was great!

Hi again, Mackie:

I started to say how badly I feel about you having to have a pacemaker... but then, the options can be (and usually are) pretty grim. I'm hoping music will provide you with activity to stir the mind and keep you active and healthy. A week before I was scheduled to move from my home-town to Glen Rose, I had an episode that put me in the hospital for a week. When it came time to determine if I was going to have a stint or pacemaker, they determined my blockage was only 20% and sent me on my merry way. I was almost disappointed they didn't do one or the other after being bored silly during that time.

Stay well and active, my friend. Creating Music is a good outlet.

All the best, ----Dave

Hey Mackie!

Always glad to see you chime into the MP3 board with a new tune. I like this, and think the music with the chorus transition needs pulled out a little more--a bit in the background losing connection with the vocals. Nice write Mackie! You're sounding good.

Thanks for your thoughts from echoes in the canyons of my past.

For a while now, I've been writing some of the pages stored in the corner of my mind. As I age gracefully, I'm trying to recallil some of my past that I skipped over, sprinkled with a little truth and fiction!

I alway appreciate your input!

The pacemaker was necessary--the cost was 103,000 dollars: Blue Cross paid all of the part Medicare didn't cover--of course, they reduced final cost down to one fourth--It's given me a little boost to write again--we'll see how it works out!

Thanks
