Song Description

Song about finding the right one when you thought all hope had gone. My latest upload 'To Be With You' is an unashamed shot at the market cornered by the likes of the British girl band Girls Aloud. Their last 2 singles Untouchable and The Loving Kind are tracks that I adore the sound of. They may lack musical integrity according to musical snobs, but they are what they are - great pop songs. I have tried to emulate them. You have to imagine them being sung by female vocalists. As a lone songwriter I don't have female vocalists I can call upon to record the vocal track. This is the same track musically as another upload of mine called 'Zimbabwe' - only this version is a lot more upbeat in the musical and lyrical sense. Any and all feedback, both good and bad, welcome.

Story Behind the Song

Based loosely on my own experience.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very well-built song with good vocals and instrumentation and a really fine arrangement. Has an 80's feel to it and a very pleasant flow.

    - MGB

This is classic pop, with an 80's sound. Perhaps consider a category - it's not what I would call Europop. I loved the simple structure of the verse and chorus that made it catchy and memorable.

Lyrics

When you walked in my life, I couldn't believe just how lucky I could be
that day, you came in my life (I knew it was meant to be)
The day that you came, I couldn't breathe 'cos things had never been that good
for me, a future I couldn't see (you know)

The day that you came into my life
I knew just what to do

To be with you it's all I need it's why I've waited all this time
To be with you it's all I need and now it's true you're really mine
Just when I thought my luck was out you came and saved me just in time
I'm looking to the future with hope that is no longer blind

Waking next to you is what I've been waiting for, I thought this day would never come
to me, you were worth the wait (I prayed you'd walk through that door)
Now that yesterday's gone and this day is here, I'm not afraid of anything
Because you're standing right by my side, (my dear)

The day that you came into my life
I knew just what to do

To be with you it's all I need it's why I've waited all this time
To be with you it's all I need and now it's true you're really mine
Just when I thought my luck was out you came and saved me just in time
I'm looking to the future with hope that is no longer blind

And when it comes to the crunch, we will work it out, you know it's not untrue
The days we'll be together, will far outweigh, the number when we're blue
You'd think after a lifetime, of looking for, the one who's not arrived
We'd be grown up about it, it's just insane, like we've just come alive

To be with you it's all I need it's why I've waited all this time
To be with you it's all I need and now it's true you're really mine
Just when I thought my luck was out you came and saved me just in time
I'm looking to the future with hope that is no longer blind
