This song is produced by Michael Zaneski and he also adds the vocals.I have been trying to write a certain song that i was hoping Michael would help me out on and i found it in this one.Thanks Michael Z.

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13755629

One More Chance

When i'm sleeping,i start dreaming
When i'm waking,i start wishing
There's no difference,oh oh,between the two

When i'm lonely,i feel like crying
When i'm the only,i feel like dying
There's no denying,mmmm,i'm needing you

All the days and the nights,they both seem the same
The darkness and the light,playing tricks on my brain
No remorse in their actions,how it hurts my blue heart
Baby give us one more chance,to make a brand new start

When i see you,you don't have time to stay
When i speak too,you don't hear a word i say
I guess it's true,sometimes love fades away

[chorus]

No matter how i try
Nothing seems to work
I keep asking myself why
Love has to hurt

[chorus]

Impressive write, Michael:

This one really works well and the two of you have "burned the house down" with this one. Love those harmonies and Zaneski's great backing work. Enjoyed my listen. Best of luck with it 'cause it's ready to be "pitched." ----Dave

Nice chorus, well done M&M! (Seals and Croft vibe with those lovely vocals)
The last line in the third verse could possibly be improved, as it seems to imply there is no chance, yet it leads into the chorus, where the plea is for another chance. confused

Good stuff!
Best
-Mike

Lovely song, both the lyric and the music, and a great production.
I think the offset rhymes on wishing/difference and dying/denying work very well.

But this line felt out of place:
No remorse in their actions,how it hurts my blue heart
The rest of the song appears to be him speaking to her - there is no "they" except on that one line. You may have a backstory in which that all makes sense, but if it's not part of the lyric, there's a good chance many folks wont understand it.

Scratched my head on that line also, until I realized, (I think) "their" is referring to the "darkness and light" from the previous line. Is that correct Michael?

Mike & Mike,

Very nice! Super sound - harkens back to the "airy" pop bands of the late 70's/early 80's... (Little River Band, Air Supply).

Excellent production. Excellent vocals.

Enjoyed that.

Lovely write, vocal and production.

Wrap it up and stick a fork in it. Done.

There's a world of things to like here.

For us, it's an over the top good ballad!
