I said Id write your song

Most people who write some of their stuff are inspired by the break up part of their relationships. This song is about a women I onced loved who asked me when do I get my song. After hearing other songs about past relationships. Most women inspire only one song in my lifes tails. She on the other hand has become the focus of the her that I speak of in so many songs. Only thing is she doesnt ever get to hear these songs. She has moved on and is happy with someone else. I also have moved on but Im just happy alone I guess. The beginning of the song was meant to sound some what of the begining of The End by the Doors as I remember setting the stage. I still write mostly of her to this day even though Im over her.

You know, I have half a love song written for an ex, and I've never quite figured out what to do with it. I'd feel guilty repurposing it for someone else, you know?

I like the meta approach you've taken here, though. Sounds like it could be cathartic. It's a nice piece, too. I love that little rhythmic hiccup in the bridge.

I too have written multiple songs about a woman from my past. I think in my case it's because she was basically my first love, and represents this shining ideal because thinking of her brings me back to a more innocent time. I guess the songs aren't necessarily about her, but about the me I was back when she was more prominent in my life.

Anyway... this has a nice melody, and at times it gets into a cool groove (I like that bass transition you do and how it leads into the next "movement" of the song each time). I wish it was a little tighter, because the nice rhythmic touches throughout are great but need more accuracy to really hit home. danb is right though, that "rhythmic hiccup" is niiiice. Makes the song. Nice work!

I liked this. It is reminding me of a song but it's not anything by The Doors (I want to say Don McLean but I don't think that's right). I'd have to agree that the song could be a bit tighter but who am I to judge? Consider yourself playlisted!
