If I had a Heart

Just a quick write, and music I had laying around, lyric is not always the best but always " impeccable vocals and music production from Mike Zaneski..


If I had a Heart


If it were up to me..
there would never be lonely.
capturing hearts,
well...its never easy.

sometimes We think
the impossible stories.
There is a chance ...
this story... can come true....

Chorus:
If I had a heart...
and it was ...the last minute
in this world ..that I ever knew...
I`d want a heart in my life...like you.


If there were fancy cars,
and lots of money.
If I could travel the world,
and never worry.

They say through thick and thin
if you are always together.
the rest of this world
makes no difference at all....


Chorus:

If I had a heart...
and if it was...the last minute
in this world ..that I ever knew...
I`d want a heart in my life...like you.

bridge:
one real chance is all we`ll get
and on nights like this ..I wish....I wish.

Chorus:2

I want a heart...
and if it was...the last minute
in this world ..I ever knew...
I `d want a heart in my life...like you. ...

in my life...like you. ...

Lane,

A really cool song. Man! they don't make 'em like this anymore...

Made me think of Jack Jones - which I can honestly say I have not thought of for decades... Vic Damone. Mel Torme...

Mike did a super job.

An EXCELENT listen.

Hi Floyd, I was thinking of the 70`s 80`s when people were far more tangible, I could walk into almost any nightclub in Vegas
and here something like this. I didn`t have a song like this. I told Mike and He did this for me. thanks so much for commenting and giving this a listen, I`ve seen everyone you mention up close..far different days then than now...Vincent

Cool song. I could hear where this song could work as a jazz standard.

I thought the lyrics were fine. The performance, arrangement, and production are all excellent.

The only thing you might want to consider is to pick up the tempo slightly (~10BPM).

Really well done.

Peace,
TC


If it has strings I will find a way to play it!

This one takes me back to the 50's and forward a bit... when music was real music, Lane:

Gee whiz... it's wonderful to be "Zaneskified" so early in the morning. Great write... great melody... and the production and vocal are to die for! Enjoyed this a ton, guys. Thanks, ----Dave

Nicely done! I love the chorus. It reminds me of
early Beatles or maybe something Johnny Mathis might have done.

Thank you Deej, for giving this a listen, all that belongs to Mike, He`s so talented at finding the right effect I think.. Lane

thank you TC, always look forward to hearing from others, really glad you stopped in and gave it a listen...Lane

Hi Dave, i write in the 80`s and 90`s I think, but this song I took back a little more, and I didn`t have a song like this
thanks Dave for coming by. Lane

Hi Anthony, I thought it was too. nice to meet you. Lane

Lane,

This song takes me back to the late 60's for sure--yeah, I'm that old! This guy you mentioned Mike Z...............sounds familiar, we could use a guy like that around here a little more! (are you reading this MZ)

Lane, you should be proud, this is an EXCELLENT write--Johnny Mathis could have made this a #1--you know what, what goes around comes around------so maybe!

It always amazes me how no matter the genre, Michael nails it. The song sounds like a classic. Lyric fits vibe perfectly. Perfect mesh of lyric and music. Not a single complaint from me. Great job.

Wow! It's great to hear a production like this.

Literally an instant classic.

A perfect vehicle for the perfectly upfront vocal.

Most enjoyable!

Hey Dave, glad you came by and listened, and commented ...Mike always gets the pieces to fit for me. Lane

Hi J&B...I don`t think this was much of a challenge for Mike Z ..He`s always on with the vocals..and I`m always impressed . thanks for commenting glad you liked it.. Lane

Yes, sounds like one of those Johnny Mathis songs to me.
It has that 50's 60's sound too. Nice lyrics.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.
