All this talk about recording software inspired me to dust off GarageBand, pull one from the miscellaneous drawer, and knock out a quick midi demo :)

https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=14122246

Day to day looking for ways to kill my time
long distance phone call still on my mind
Think about what we said just days ago
Word for word lacking the meaning of all that I want you to know
I can't help but wonder my long distance lover
Is the distance enough for you to love another
Try to convince myself that I'm just insecure
But my past seems to haunt me, it's making me unsure

But when we're together I have no fears
This distance between us brings on the tears
In love but alone, I'm burning inside
All this emotion's getting harder to hide
Do you believe in forever

Well I'm just a man scared of being alone
I want what's mine near me to call my own
If that's insecure then don't try to change me
Small price to pay to have you near me
Can't say what I feel within the measure of a song
It's just so hard being gone so long
But love takes time and in time love will grow
Love me forever babe and I'll never let you go

When we're together I have no fears
This distance between us brings on the tears
In love but alone, I'm burning inside
All this emotion's getting harder to hide
Do you believe in forever

Nice arrangement. I've said it before but you get a good bass sound..it sounds real. This is another great song. Demonstrates very well what can be done with Garage Band. It speaks volumes about your song writing that you have stuff like this in your 'miscellaneous drawer'. This is excellent :)

Love how powerfully you sing out on "Do you believe..."

The pauses and sparser sections are lovely contrast.

Might be room for some more drum fills in the chorus if you want them.

Not a bad song to have sitting around in your drawer!

It's fun how easily a song can evolve in midi lol, the way I wrote it originally on guitar is completely different.
Anyway, it's just a quick one off... you're welcome to play with it :)

Another winner, JAPOV! I like the vibe and feel of the song.

You've got a very good, and very strong voice. I agree with RDM about the powerfully-sung line "Do you believe..."

My favorite set of lyrics in the song are:
Well I'm just a man scared of being alone
I want what's mine near me to call my own
If that's insecure then don't try to change me
Small price to pay to have you near me

As I sometimes do, I stuck around your SC channel for the following tune "A Subtle Fire", which I already liked earlier. Good tunes, man! :D

Thanks Icy! Seems like yesterday, but I wrote this song in the barracks in Groton, Connecticut for my girlfriend in San Diego... 1986 lol :)
