Love Is In The Things I Do

Story Behind The Song

The melody came from some instrumental work I was doing for a film project that didn't get off the ground. I liked the melody so much I sat down to write lyrics to fit the music. The idea of having to come to terms with the inevitability of a pending break up was inspired by the film project and it seemed to fit very well as a theme. I have been in search of a female vocalist who was prepared to take on the song and I'm delighted that Emma Jane agreed to an online collaboration to produce this version. Many people will have realised that in fact the first version was sung by me, not Emma Jane. This latest revision irons out some technical issues and adds guitar and a fuller orchestra to the arrangement, again beautifully performed by Emma Jane.

Love Is In The Things I Do
© 2012 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley
Vocals: Emma Jane

Verse One:
You will never change
But I've tried to be the best that I can be
I am still the same
But I know inside you're planning without me
And any future's hard to see

Love, it's in the things I do
I've always given mine
Love, is different for you
I must accept it's time

Verse Two:
Like many times before
You expect me to forgive your sad affairs
But there will be no more
Now you've brushed aside the love we used to share
And it's not that I don't care

Love, it's in the things I do
I've always given mine
Love, is different for you
I must accept it's time

You, are all I've ever known
I've given all I can
To be here on my own
Accepting all I am

It's in the things I do
I've always given mine
Love, is different for you
I must accept it's time

Verse Three:
My heart will be with you
But I'm sure the day will come when I'm OK
Just have to see it through
And a time will come when I can say
That I'm over you

Emma Jane:

I love the idea and chord progression. Very pleasing and takes me on a journey. Nice potential for the vocal as I believe the performance has been "put to tape". The arrangement and voicing seems nice from what I can tell. I really love the "Dolly Parton" vocal sound that I am getting. She is actually a very soulful Country singer that doesn't get the credit and respect she is due.

Beautifully delivered. Well sung to a solid story. Pro production all around. Vocals that soar. Well done

What's not to like ! Loved the intro , that really set the scene .
Great bridge , as well as everything else on the track .

Love the intro. Vocals are great actually excellent vocals, maybe the best female vocal I've heard on Broadjam . really nice song and instrumentation. Great production.

Minor introduction sets this song up for a sad story of love lost, an unfaithful man with his "sad affairs" (great lyric). "You expect me to forgive" ... great storytelling paints the picture of this failed relationship. There's a great, memorable riff subtle throughout the track, that comes to the forefront at the end (really liked that musical phrase, totally fits the mood of the song). Great instrumentation, production and mix. Passionate, emotional vocal is right on the money. Wow on the rising vocals in the bridge.

Love the voice. That is the selling point here. Cool song overall.

Beautiful, heartfelt song. The vocals were very well done, as was the instrumental part.

The vocal presentation was excellent....good voice. The pitch was good. The instrumentation was appropriate and I liked the chord progression and arrangement.There is good marriage between the music and lyrics.

Beautiful voice and recording. The bridge lifts the listener and keeps them engaged in the song.

Wow, I like the rich sound that envelopes the listener right away. It's like a warm blanket. A really strong pitch issues here and delivered with passion. I like the emotional ambience of the lyrics. The song has a strong melody and it is very engaging.

Very good lead vocal. the voice of an angel, that in parts reminds me of dolly Parton. this has more of a country vibe than pop, and would lend itself to tv and movies very well.

This would be a rocking country tune. I would go full out country with it. The music in the background is decent.

This is a very nice song with a good melody and great vocals. Lovely lyrics. This song held my attention throughout.

I really like the arrangement and instrumentation and it sounds professionally produced.

Nice vocal! Melody is easy going and the lyrics can cross over to country! Good vocal range!

I like this song, it's a bit sad and poignant. The singer sounds like Stevie Nicks (which is good). Your keyboards are nice and I like the bass and drums. There is a haunting quality to this song that makes it attractive.

dark sad ballad and what sounds a personal song.
nice strings and music backing especially liked the 3minute section - lush

The signer has a great gravel thing that slips in every now and then.
