Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Let's ignore the fact that I can't sing and that my timing is off and celebrate that I came up with the melody by myself. If anyone wants to clean it up, that would be great

Changed the lyrics up. I'll fix that later. Gotta run to work

Lyrics: 

Since 17
(c) Deanna Sweidel

Since 17
In your eyes I melt
Since 17
Known just how I felt

Since 17
Your kiss it makes me weak
Since 17
Your love’s all I seek

As time goes on
You’re all I’ve seen
I’ve loved you since
Since 17

Since 17
My heart can skip a beat
Since 17
You sweep me off my feet

Since 17
I ache to hear your voice
Since 17
You’re my heart’s first choice

As time goes on
Strange as it seems
I’ve loved you since
Since 17

I shiver from your touch
I love you oh so much
This feeling unforeseen
Holding on since 17

Since 17
In your eyes I’m blind
Since 17
All my thoughts remind

That time goes on
You’re still my dream
I’ve loved you since
Since 17

I have heard people who can't sing, and you, my friend, are not one of them. You stayed pretty much in key the whole time! Nice to hear your voice interpreting your words!

You have a beautiful tone to your voice. Enjoyed the sentiment of the song.

This runs deep and my guess is there is more gold in this vein. Nice work on the lyric and I enjoyed the vox Smile

I loved the lyrics before and I think the melody and phrasing delivers it well. Love the sound of your vocals!

Well, you clearly can sing. Listened to both versions and while the original was enjoyable I think you did a great job with the updated version, it has a bit more depth to it. Nice work!

By now you should know this but I'll tell it anyway: you can sing and not only sing but sing well. You have a beautiful voice and it even has natural vibrato that is one sign of good singing (your vocal cords are relaxed ). You could find some local musician to help you find chords to this melody.

Nice work. You bring it to life with your voice. Baby steps. ☺
