I spend hours at the window,
Hoping to see you walk by,
Maybe drop in,
Give it one more try,
One more time,
One more time

V2
The last time I saw you,
Your eyes looked away,
You dashed right on by,
The price that I pay,
Not that time,
Not that time

Instr - refrain
One more time,
One more time

BR
I sure like it better,
When we lived together,
Then she came,
Wish Id never met her,
Just that time,
Just that time

Instr - refrain
One more time,
One more time

I spend hours at the window,
Wishing youd come home again,
Knock on my door,
Id jump up, let you in,
For all time,
For all time,
For all time,
For all time

Hey Colin!

This was really a sweet song. I really like how it's glued together with the interludes, and a fabulous bridge by the way! This vibe really fits your vocal quite well. Great simple song with nice melody,arrangement, production, & great performance with the acoustic guitar. Also, I think having NO harmony gives this song a more personal feel--but understand as composers, it's hard to resist harmony--but I think this works great alone IMO.

Great write here!

steady-eddie.

Colin, I like this. It's got an easy-going country flavor. Reminds me of something Don Williams could have taken a swing at.

Colin, this is a rough draft? It sounds great as is. A fine blend of sweet and sad, wishing and hoping. Nice!

Hi Colin:

I like everything about this "reflective" Country Song. Great vocal, nice backing and a sincere, heartfelt lyric. Can't wait to hear a version with the entire band... if and when you choose to record it that way. Best of luck with it! ----Dave

Wonderful performance Colin.
Sounds great to my ears but then again I'm a sucker for a good waltz.

Hey Colin,

Sounding better & better! Like the additions. I might lower that electric lead guitar about 2 db at the intro, so as not to have the following acoustic's entrance feel as thin "only" by comparison--certainly sounds very good -- maybe move the acoustic over to the R just a "tad 12-15%" to enhance that intro shift from L to R--even though your acoustic guitar is probably on a stereo track. I like the electric intro though, as it let's the listener know right now that this is a country flavored song.

Just a tweak sug--proof will be in the pudding. Love the song Colin.

steady-eddie.

Hi Colin,

I'm agreeing w/Eddie again. You have a naturally gentle voice, and this song is a perfect match.

Chet Atkin's had the perfect template for recording your kind of voice: close mic'd vocals, then brightening them and upping the compression levels a tad, and a slight but tasty bit of hall reverb..

The guitar work is just stellar. The whole piece is a mellow piece of beauty. smile

Draft? There's a heckuva lot of things to like in this draft.

The soundstage is really good via our monitors.

All the tracks get along very well with one another to yield a mellow sound but yet there is still a lot of heart in it.

Enjoyed it.
