Skirmish A on Stormy Night

Lyrics: 

V1 It was a stormy night in November
I Guess you wont remember
Well not well not well not the way i do

V2 I put my heart on my sleeve
Didn’t expect you to up and leave
Not sure not sure not sure what saw me through

C Still seems like yesterday
But The pain ain’t gone away
Well not well not well not when I’m alone

C I gave you all i had
Thats what makes me sad
Realise now realise realise you were just on loan

V3 Were you realy ever mine
Knowing it aint a crime
At least at least i can then know what went wrong

V4 Don’t want to fall in that trap again
Don’t want to repeat just the same
Find away find away find away to always stay strong

C Still seems like yesterday
The pain ain’t gone away
Well not well not not when I’m alone

C I gave you all i had
Thats what makes me sad
Realise now you were just on loan

Outro It was a stormy night in November
Guess you wont remember
Well not well not well not the way i do

This is a really pretty song! That is such a sweet melody to accompany these sad lyrics! I especially love the technique you use on the last line of each verse section! That is clever and makes the song quite interesting. Great work on the skirmish!

A real heartbreaker of a song. Those repeated words really help carry the mood along. Strong write for a skirmish!

'Realise now you were just on loan' Oof - that tugs the heartstrings. Very emotive John! Good skirmish

What a lovely song! So charming, loving and truly special. It grabs the listener from the first note and holds attention and makes us feel for the loving character.

Sadly introspective. Nicely sung and played. You captured a feeling that we've all had sometime. Good songwriting that!

Insightful and introspective story. Beautifully bittersweet. Such a gentle emotional delivery.

great conversational tone and it's nicely done- that winding melody suits the subject, too. great job!

So sad, and you tell the musical tale so well. Your vocal has a heartstring-tugging quality, and the accompaniment has a timeless feel.
I know I've been right there in your song.

Such a heartbreaking song. very well played. Nicely layed out and very well mixed

I like the way you took a slightly different way to look at a familiar subject.
"Guess you wont remember
Well not well not well not the way i do" sums it all up.
Like the traditional feel to this ballad, it's the best of gentle music, with a positive feeling creeping out a little Smile

The song has a really strong groove, and build up. Good stuff.

Lovely mix of instruments, and vocals are like honey on a cake. Lyrics (especially "you were just on loan") fab!
