Like the one so Hard to Find

She said I was the best thing
At the worst time of her life
And I understood
When she said she
needed time

I was no angel
I don't deny
But heartache was coming
This time

(Chorus)

It all started without expectations
That’s the way I wanted it to be
It could've been more
If I was sure
About me

So she left early one morning
Without waisting any time
Before I could tell her
I changed my mind

(Chorus)

Bridge:
She's more than eye candy
She's easy to please
She's more than special
What's wrong with me

————Chorus —---

Now I wake each morning
Full of regrets
And another excuse
For not facing them yet

There's so much more about her
She's one of a kind
She's my kind of lady
Like the ones so hard to find

Outro:
She's my kind of lady
Like the ones so hard to find

It's a good one John!

Some really nice lines in there:
She's my kind of lady
Like the ones so hard to find

and also
She said I was the best thing
At the worst time of her life


Overall it feels tender, wistful and regretful, but without being overdone. Very real. Is this based on real life cause it certainly feels that way? Very relatable.

Another very good number and performance, John. My favorite lyrics in your song are:

It all started without expectations
That’s the way I wanted it to be
It could've been more
If I was sure
About me


I think many can relate to that. Good stuff, John! Keep 'em coming! :D

John, hearing it pulls it all together. I wasn’t really sure lines 5-8, were going to mesh, reading the lyrics, with the first 4 of v1 but once you sang it it came together. Nice job.

I really appreciate you taking another look. I gave your original feedback a run on seeing what I could do which I'm normally good at expressing the same thing different ways. But in this case and probably because I was invested emotionally, I just couldn't do it.

Thanks!
