Hi Everyone, just a little tune that I had asked my wife to sing for me. Hope you all like it. As always, any and all comments welcome, and first impressions are most welcome.

“OVER THERE"
By Tom Tognaci

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11794379


You’re not the only
One so lonely
As I go thru my life
There was no emotion
No devotion
In the moments spent that night
You just pretended not to care
When I was over there


In the idle chatter
We didn’t matter
You seemed a little too polite
You played your guitar
While I tore an old scar
Singing words lovers might
That strain proved too much to bare
When I was over there


Why don’t you love me
The way I love you?
Is your heart yours to keep?
Is it my style
Or do you just take a while
To look before you leap?
Those questions I couldn’t dare
When I was over there

Oh, my goodness Tom! What have you gone and done? Beautiful Recording! Lovely voice! Very NICE! smile

You two could have easily done a back and forth "QnA" type thing though...

What a great feel to the song. I didn't even notice there wasn't a chorus because the last line in the verses was so cool and stood out. Really good vocal and I love the simplicity of the instrumentation.

What a sweet voice Tom!

Loved it, loved it. I might have your wife jump back in a measure earlier after the instrumental solo--small break after solo not needed--IMO.

A real gem Tom!
