No Longer Mine

Tags: 

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Izaak: So an old friend of mine spent the weekend at my place and we recorded four songs including this one. He sings lead and harmony vocals, plays rhythm guitar, and wrote all the words and music for these songs. I hope I can get him to start an account and link him as a collaborator, but until then, I'll pass your comments along the best I can. I sang harmonies and played the various lead and backing instruments, as well as doing the sound editing.

Lyrics: 

It’s too late to tell you that I’m sorry
You made it clear there’s nothing I can do
I can promise you that I’m changing
But it doesn’t really matter if I do

Part of me believes that I should follow you
You just want to see my love is true
I realize that I made you unhappy
You moved on, I guess that I should too

You’re no longer mine to miss
You’re no longer mine to kiss
You’re no longer mine to have and to hold
It’s time I face the fact that you are never coming back
You’re no longer mine to love and grow old with

Wish that I could stop thinking about you
Realize the fact that we are through
Wish that I finally stop hoping
You’ll change your mind and want me there with you

But you’re no longer mine to miss
You’re no longer mine to kiss
You’re no longer mine to have and to hold
It’s time I face the fact that you are never coming back
You’re no longer mine to love and grow old with

I could lie and say I’m doing better than I am
That I’m finally getting over you
I think you know me well and I’d be bluffing
When I say I’m moving on because that’s all that I can do

I’m no longer yours to miss
I’m no longer yours to kiss
I’m no longer yours to have and to hold
I finally faced the fact that you are never coming back
I’m no longer yours to love and grow old with
You’re no longer mine to love and grow old with



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

WOW! I could probably listen to this several times and learn some serious information about how to arrange a song. I defs felt transported back in time with this genre. Super tasty instruments making a cozy bed for the well written lyrics to lay over. Loved that dramatic pause in the middle. Super vocal performances you guys Smile

Your music is always so polished and complete! As has been said already on these comments, kudos on your arrangement skills. Beautiful sentiment.

Dear Friend,
This is the third song of yours I've listened to. Your lyrics are fantastic and your voice is awesome. Izaak talked me into this a couple of years ago and it has helped me in all kinds of ways. Do it already!
Love, Amanda
PS: Is there a violin in there somewhere, or is it my imagination? It could come up a bit.

The sound of the "dog-house" (upright bass) came through nicely, don't hear that much these days, nice!
