Song Description

The couple are in a relationship where the romance has drifted but the friendship is very strong. They agree that they can be lovers again.

Story Behind the Song

We Can Be Lovers Again is now in it's third incarnation. I originally wrote and recorded it as a solo project, having wanted a song with more of a traditional country feel than my usual style. I have always had a sneaky regard for it, and particulalry enjoy the waltz time rhythm. I was then very flattered when a good online friend, Barry G covered the song in his own (sort of Willie Nelson) style, adding some great guitar playing to it. I was even more flattered when Julia Schmidt suggested we should collaborate and then agreed with my suggestion that We Can Be Lovers Again could make a great duet. Julia is based in New Jersey USA and I'm in Dorset UK so the process has been a truly online, transatlantic, project - and a most enjoyable one. Thankfully the original key suited Julia so we were able to use the instrumental backing track from my original although I did adjust it a little. I sent that to her recording engineer Julia recorded her verses and the various chorus, bridge and harmony parts, putting her own stamp on things, and her engineer sent the tracks to me dry (without effects, reverb etc.). So that our voices would be synchronised, I re-recorded my vocals in line with Julias, added the harmonies and effects and mixed the arrangement. I had always said that nothing would be heard by anyone else until both Julia and I were 100% happy with the track so I sent the first mix to Julia for honest feedback. I'm pleased to say that although there were 5 mixes in all, they were really only minor adjustments in vocal levels or reverb. Mix 5 is now the final and I know I speak for us both when I say we thoroughly enjoyed the collaboration and are very proud of the resulting track. Thank you Julia for your great vocal, your patience & understanding and your honest and friendly approach to the process. Here's to the next one. We both hope you like We Can Be Lovers Again.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Female vocals in this piece are outstanding. The chord structure is solid in this piece that gives it a nice traditional feel. The song as a whole takes me back to that classic 80's country ballads even earlier.

    - Sean Hiler

I love the song, it is written so well, love the lyrics. Instrumentals sound great.

Lyrics

WE CAN BE LOVERS AGAIN
© 2012 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley
Verse 1:
We've been good now for so many years
We've had all of the fun and the tears
But the good times have gone, it's all going wrong
But we can be lovers again, we can be lovers again

Verse 2:
There is nothing that we cannot do
We've been friends for so long me and you
Just a little more time, and with luck we will find
That we can be lovers again, we can be lovers again.

Bridge:
If we can just try as the time passes by
Love will grow stronger
Between you and I

Verse 3:
We have love here, you know that I'm right
And if you will come with me tonight
We can remember the first time we met
And we can be lovers again, we can be lovers again

Bridge:
If we can just try as the time passes by
Love will grow stronger
Between you and I

Verse 4:
We have love here, you know that I'm right
And if you will come upstairs tonight
We can remember the first time we met
And we can be lovers again, we can be lovers again
