Electric re-vamp of an oldie... Cheers smile

https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=14285246
{updated lead guitar lol} 7-21 wink

Who's been lying to who, and which one of us has been looking for something to believe in
And who's been trying to prove that love is a lie, we've wasted our time and there's nothing left to lose
And look how long it took to realize, there's too many losers in the game that we've been playing
And it does no good babe to criticize, when love's all gone you better hold on, can't you hear what I'm trying to say

Losing my heart to a woman isn't nearly as bad as losing my soul
I've made up my mind you're not bringing me down
I'll carry on

Well love's the game that people play, and with every game there's winners and there's losers
It's just so hard to explain that win or lose, pick or choose, love is only
what you make it
And it seems like only yesterday when we met and thought we'd maybe make the distance
I never ever thought I'd hear you say that you've gave up on trying, you're fed up with lying, you need a love with less resistance
Now that you're gone I have to say everything's happened for the best
And I hope that you find love anyway, girl I gave you my heart, you tore it apart and now there's nothing left to save

But losing my heart to a woman isn't nearly as bad as losing my soul
I've made up my mind you're not bringing me down
I'll carry on
No I wont be lonely, I wont feel sorry, I wont be lost for the rest of my life, I'll find me a love who's gonna' make it alright, I'm gonna' love her with all my might..........
I'm gonna' let you go tonight

Love the groove!!
Great strut going on here. Love it. Very cool, has a sorta T. Petty swagger. There are probably much better comparisons than T. Petty....I find this strangely unique and familiar. Thought provocation!!!
Love it!

This is a really great song, JAPOV, .....nice groove! It's easily the best vocal I've heard from you and the writing is quality.

Oh yeah - laid back 60's R&B - cool!
Good vox and lyrics are poignant.

This is great. I have a new favorite JAPOV song. I love it for all the reasons others have mentioned above. My only suggestion concerns the chorus. It's great and I felt it ended too abruptly. I'd have enjoyed hearing those lines repeated melodically with different lyrics.

Losing my heart to a woman isn't nearly as bad as losing my soul
I've made up my mind you're not bringing me down
I'll carry on
Lay the key to my heart down beside the key to my open door
Close it behind you, leave without turning around
I'll carry on

Hmmmm....

Losing my heart to a woman isn't nearly as bad as losing my soul
I've made up my mind you're not bringing me down
When you're gone
Lay the key that you found beside the lock that opened my heart's door
Close it behind you, leave without turning around
I'll carry on smile
