Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Just back in from out of town and this kind of came out tonight.

Lyrics: 

Tired of them asking
All the same ol' questions
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone

Tired of repeating
That I'm not needing
Anything
Don't need anything

Just want to be left alone
And sit a while
Remember your smile

Just wish I could hold you close
One more time tonight
And make it alright

I'll be up 'til morning
Unaware, ignoring
The way I feel
This can't be real

They'll come and tell me
I can cry, it's healthy
And I'll break down
Yeah, I'll break down

Just want to be left alone
And sit a while
Remember your smile

Just wish I could hold you close
One more time tonight
And make it alright

I remember watching you sleep
A moment that could last forever
But those moments slip away
Now we can't be together

Tired of them asking
All the same ol' questions
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone

Just want to be left alone
And sit a while
Remember your smile

Just wish I could hold you close
One more time tonight
And make it alright

Yes your absence was noted! Nice song to come back with! Strong lyric and nice guitar

This one’s pretty damn special! Great riff to round off the ends with a lot a character, and an emotionally savvy lyric. The progression and melody seem very well-suited for it. I find myself wanting to cover it, and thinking too that there are many who will relate to your words only too well. Great re-entry!

Heart wrenching. I feel your pain. Amazing how we feel like we're on a different planet when a loved one dies. You captured it perfectly.

you capture that ache of longing in these lyrics that are sung in a grief stricken atmosphere

A fully formed song, well done, Sir. That lovely signature lick is just wonderful. I love it when it all comes out like that.

Damn TC, this is really beautiful! Love the guitar work...has a nice original feel (mine are all starting to sound like the same fingerpicking roll!) Such a sad, sad lyric! You really put this together in a way that conveys the deep sadness. I love your vocals and, well, I love everything about this! You have another winner right here, my friend!
