Not Without You - 07/23/21 11:46 PM



Hi all...Haven't been around much in the last little while.
Here is a song I'm working on, I want to tank Ed for his help and suggestions on it, and Cal for the lyrics he provided for this.

Enjoy.

Not Without You
Lyrics by Cal Di Falco

This has taken so long
Thought wed never be free
It was so very wrong
To have it take you from me
But the love we have is strong
Its been like a song
We had been on our own
Thought Id never see you
And how could we have known
If wed both make it through
But the love we have is strong
Its been like a song
And the words that we spoke
Words that speak of the pain
Are the words that will keep us
Warm again
All the words that we spoke
Words that spoke of the pain
Were the words that kept us
Warm again
Something weve learned
Nothing can divide us
Yes, it only confirms
Nothing can stand in our way
Not another day...
...Another day Without you

Nice one Mimmo grin
I like how you break the rules in this.
It's more like a musical journey than a formulaic song.
Melody and chord progressions keep changing to build the emotion.
Took me several listens but I think I get it now grin

BTW - would be nice to hear big drums in the latter sections..

Hi Paul...Thanks for listening and for your thoughts on it.

Drums, I thought about and tried a few takes, but I think it is a bit too late to start after the singing and before that I didn't think they fit in the style of this song. But thanks for your suggestion.
Regards
Mimmo

Mimmo,

So passionate. You make the words come to life. Like Paul said, unconventional, and journey like--but it works!

Thanks so much Ed...Still trying to make a few minor adjustments to the mix, but my Cubase is acting up.
