Vic composed the music, Geneva and I did the lyric.
I always liked Vic's chorus in this song and like the previous song with the duo Chelsow I felt a female voice in the harmony would once again work well.
The instrumentation is sparse we know and will hopefully be addressed soon.
Please have a listen

TAKE A LOOK AT ME NOW
© 2021. Vic Arnold. John Vaughan. Geneva Griffin

V1
It's all over now, nothing left to do
I just want to say, one more goodbye to you
Take one long look, it's the last you'll see
Till he hurts you, like you hurt me
C
Take a look at me now for the last time.
There's no turning back, no more to say
And if the day should come that you change your mind
Take a good ... long ... look ... as I walk away

V2
What happened, to I love you forever
and nothing else matters, if we're together?
Or there's nothing, I wouldn't do for us
How could you, fall in and out of love

Ch
Take a look at me now for the last time.
There's no turning back, no more to say
And if the day should come that you change your mind
Take a good ... long ... look ... as I walk away

Inst

Br.
A last kiss as soft as a sigh,
chance to look into your eyes
I can read them like a book,
thats something you can't disguise

Ch
Take a look at me now for the last time.
There's no turning back, no more to say
And if the day should come that you change your mind
Take a good ... long ... look ... as I walk away

Really nice song, great harmony. I think more instrumentation would really add to its potential.


thats something you can't disguise... thats something you could never disguise

Among the more powerful songs I have heard. Is that the three of you singing on this one. Reminds me in many ways of some of the folk ballads of the 1960s.

A very touching lament to the loss of love and all of it's repercussions that haunt one's heart and soul. We have all pondered these questions in agony over some long lost beauty. Well done by all.

Wonderful, guys. A very moving lyric, a haunting melody (especially the chorus) and a great performance. When these all come together, each of them lifts the others up to a new level. Bravo!

Wonderful sound mates! I actually like how it's arranged--a little space is good contrasting the bold harmonies. Maybe an entering percussion with a "soft mallet" cymbal role percussion coming in on the 2nd chorus might be cool for a building affect then continuing with not real pronounced drum kit-stopping at bridge then continuing in final chorus.

Great job!

Hi Ed
I agree but there's been a hitch along the way. Hopefully in the future we'll sort this out
Thanks for the suggestion and listen

Thank you for the comments Tom.
I think what Travis meant in his opening post is that I wrote the melody. Just nitpicking. :-)

Great job John Vic and Geneva. Lyrically it reminds me of the ABBA song “The Winner Takes it All.” Very well written. Looking forward to seeing where this song goes.

Beautifully done. Simple, touching lyrics. I don't think of the arrangment as sparse. Clean is more like it. Nothing more than needed. I love the harmonies especially how it sounds like they're in the same room maybe around a single mic.

Personally I think the sparseness should stay...I wouldn't add much at all

Sweet sad song....The sad part is we don't know if he can actually take that look now...But at some point and time he will...Heart wrencher guys
