Hey everyone....it's been over a year since I've written anything, and now with lockdown upon us, I find myself with free time that wasn't there before. I'm not sure if there is anybody out there.......just nod, if you can hear me, or you can give me your first impressions on my new song.....thanks, soooooo much.

“They’re Only Tears”
Words & Music by Tom Tognaci

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=14015186

Verse 1
What do you think, living apart?
Have you drowned in your drink? Well, the party’s just started.
So how do you feel you being all alone?
It all seems so surreal with you, crying on the phone

bridge
When you sing about it, the cry in your voice
Just moves me like I don’t have a choice…….
But, to breathe.

chorus
And all these tears are reminding me
why I left behind the insanity
So I’ll dry these tears, just wipe them away
And it will do me good to remind myself they’re only tears
Just water drops…. called tears
Yea, they’re only tears

Verse 2
Where do we go after the fall?
I’m just too numb to feel that there’s anything at all
I can’t feel a thing. The pain was in the drug.
So addicted to your selfish pull of the rug

bridge
When I think about it, the voice in my head
Convinces me to remain in bed…..
….. and, to breathe

chorus
And all these tears are reminding me
why I left behind the insanity
So, I’ll dry these tears, just wipe them away
And it will do me good to remind myself they’re only tears
Just water drops…..called tears
Yea, they’re only tears

Tom,
this is wonderful! Both your vocal and playing are top notch for sure. I can definitely hear this worked up into a fuller production. It's hard to offer any crits or suggestions on a song that is as good as this one is.

Well done, thanks for sharing.
I hope you are well and safe!

Hi, Tom... This is good! Guitar sounds great; scratchy voice works perfect with this song. Your bridges sound more like pre-choruses —but that’s minor. May as well enjoy being cooped up. Keep ‘em coming!

Tom! Good to see you!
I'd pull back the reverb a bit on that guitar and lose the line "Just water drops" but hey, what do I know lol. Another great write as usual Tom! :)
