LOVE PLACED YOU RIGHT IN MY WAY

Your love is pure as cool spring water
For me itís new as morning dew
Where have you been while I suffered
With those others before I found you

OTHERS WANTED ALL I COULD GIVE
IT WAS ALL THEM I HAD NO SAY
MY HEART LOST ITS WAY OFTEN
BUT LOVE PLACED YOU RIGHT IN MY WAY

Roads I travelled were gravel and bumpy
With allures as hurt me detours
My head and heart were not talkiní
But kept walkin till they fell for you

OTHERS WANTED ALL I COULD GIVE
IT WAS ALL THEM I HAD NO SAY
MY HEART LOST ITS WAY OFTEN
BUT LOVE PLACED YOU RIGHT IN MY WAY

Open and honest
Almost flawless
Sweetly unrushed
A love
I can trust

OTHERS WANTED ALL I COULD GIVE
IT WAS ALL THEM I HAD NO SAY
MY HEART LOST ITS WAY OFTEN
BUT LOVE PLACED YOU RIGHT IN MY WAY

Looks like a simple Song Neil, and those can work wonderfully. A nice Hook/title. Fate. Serendipity. The mysterious tactics of Love, and there she is, right in your way!


There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

I think it's a real good song Neil,

I like the idea that when your looking for love they all go sour, but when your not looking the right one slaps you in the face so to speak.

Liked: The title. The first verse. The chorus...but I had a suggestion:

Your love is pure as cool spring water
For me itís new as morning dew
Where have you been while I suffered
Through the others-waiting for you

WHEN THEY WANTED ALL I COULD GIVE
I REALIZED I HAD NO SAY
MY HEART LOST ITS WAY OFTEN
THEN LOVE PLACED YOU RIGHT IN MY WAY

Loved that bridge.

Didn't care for the 2V.

Best of luck Neil!

I think what makes satan so attractive to others is
that he tastes like chocolate...
....and he played real drums

Neil,

Like what you have going on here . . . My own suggestion for the first two lines of the chorus might be just "They wanted all I could give, seemed I never had a say . . . " But it all depends on the melody and how many syllables (and the prosody) they you have to work with.

One additional thought: I think the use of "Way" in "My heart lost its way often," diminishes a bit the "in my way" hook in the last line. That, too, depends on the melody, etc. . . . but maybe a different phrasing of that third line without the word "way"?

Nice start here--keep it going!

All the best,

Deej
