Never let me go

Verse

My heart has a lot of mileage.

It has some wear and tear.

It could be there’s too much damage

To ever be repaired.

Pre chorus

If you care, if you care.

We can give it a go.

Chorus

Hold me, hold me close.

Please tell me it’s so.

Tell me you love me.

Never let me go.

Verse

I’ve known my fair share of failures.

Times I’ve felt sad and blue.

And yet here you are still trying

To come to my rescue.

Pre chorus

If you care, if you care.

We can give it a go.

Chorus

Hold me, hold me close.

Please tell me it’s so.

Tell me you love me.

Never let me go.

Bridge

I promise when I’m up and running.

I’ll take you where you want to go.

Carroll . . . I like this one . . . I can picture it as an up-tempo blues song. I like how in your lyrics you manage to keep it simple, and the necessary pop music rhymes are all there, yet never overly obvious or predictable, well done.

I fell in love with these lines and just recorded a quick & dirty draft. Any comments?
I used EZ Keys, EZ Bass and EZ Drummer on this one.

I like the version that Robbi did.

I also did a little tune: as usual, my voice + ukulele.

I find it amazing how people interpret the exact same lyric totally differently 🙂 . 

Take care

@robbi I think this could be really good. You've really got EZ-Keys and EZ-Drummer working for you. Sounds great.

Thanks Gavin. Don't tell anybody that in reality I didn't play a single instrument. With the software I mentioned I wrote and recorded the complete playback in less than 30 minutes. EZ is really awesome. It's the ultimate tool for songwriters.

I just added some ear candy: harmony vocals as well as an e-guitar and an acoustic guitar that were generated by my Yamaha keyboard.
