Lyrics

I need More
©2012 Janet Steely
125 beats per min. mid range female vocal ( key f#)

V1: You know i loved you / you know me better than I ever knew my self

I Saved your emails and your letters / left your picture on the table, by my bed
But I built a life / I made some friends / just to prove I could get by
but I can't count the lonely nights / or the tear drops I have cried

CH: E v e r y t i m e I move on, you come to haunt my heart tell me how l o n g is too long,
I need more / my heart can't wait to live
& I need more than a memory can give.

V2: I gave it all / the deep part of my heart / the corners of my soul & You were all I thought I needed/ all the love I had to give was / yours to hold
When someone gives / that much away / there is just no turning back
Can this heart love that way again / Tell me Can you answer that
CH

Bridge: I wonder if you walked in to the room just what I'd do. If I could look into your eyes and know you still love me too .. what would I do? What would I do?

CH: Ev e r y t i m e I move on you come to haunt my heart
tell me how long is too long,
I need more / my heart can't wait to live & I need more than a memory can give.

nice acoustic country vibe. like the email thing, makes it "today-ish"....nice strong vocal. interesting and different song structure for a country tune--which i LIKE.

very strong vocals,sounds goooood

Beautiful music and vocals; perfect demo for this style; was that you singing/playing?
