Lyrics

With paper and pencil, I wrote down some lines
About a love that had truckloads of warning signs
It was long ago, but there still is some pain
Cos' the song remains

She had eyes that held me in that uncomfortable place
Black hair and red lips and scorn on her face
Over time I got over and a little more sane
But the song remains

And the recurring words open old wounds
The waltzy old meter the familiar tune
Just when I see daylight, just when I see gains
Comes a hard refrain

I remember my singing a chorus or two
While she sat there anxious for me to get through
I guess she knew the ending and it was more of the same
Just a hard refrain

The recurring words they open old wounds
The waltzy old meter the familiar tune
Just when I see daylight, just when I see gains
Comes a hard refrain

They call this cathartic...to recall the heartache..but I wish I could forget this song

Cos the recurring words open old wounds
The waltzy old meter the familiar tune
Just when I see daylight, just when I see gains
Comes a hard refrain

Very heartfelt ballad with very pleasing vocals and very good and appropriate instrumentation. This is very reminiscent of a lot of good country songs around the 70's and 80's, and should work well in a movie or TV show set in that time period.

Sounds like a Beautiful ballad. instrumentals, voice, tempo, all good. I like the hook too.

nice country tune. good production balance. nice to actually hear
the lyrics.

Love the violin, perfect balance of song and embellishments. A true country song. Thanks for the listen

Reminds me of Nilsson a little bit, but singing country
Nice solid song, good instrumentation
Well done

beautiful song/great job/i love it/might be a hit song-to me-you got my vote
