Liner Notes: 

This is a song about love lost and the affair that preceded it. Wonderful lyrics by Kristi (especially the chorus, so ripe for a pop song) and a joy to record and sing to.

I thought I'd go for something like Ric Ocasek from The Cars would do on this tune Smile

Lyrics: 

There Goes Love
© 2019 Kristi McKeever

What were you doing
Every Friday night
Gone but present
And on my mind

What were you saying
When you held her close
A heartless lover
A transparent ghost

[ch]
Oh there goes love
Kiss it goodbye
When did our star lose its light
No more dreams, no desire
What we had wasn’t enough
So there...there goes love

What were you thinking
When you told those lies
A real impostor with
Deceptive eyes

Where were you going
When you disappeared
A silent message
Received loud and clear

[ch]
So there goes love
Kiss it goodbye
When did our star lose its light
No more dreams, no desire
What we had wasn’t enough
So there...there goes love

[br]
Questions asked and ignored
People always wanting more
But I’m moving forward, movin’ on
And I’ve got my walking shoes on

Repeat ch

This sounds great chugging along with that backbeat and those limpid guitars--just about radio ready. The chorus really does lift off. I really like how you come back to the chorus after the tasty solo

Wow, that hits the pop sweet spot bull's eye! I'd love to hear harmonies on the chorus.

Great title, and yeah, the lyric is well written. I agree that chorus is a darn good one. I like the way the music/vocal highlights the chorus. Going to the higher register emphasizes it nicely. That guitar break is tasteful and sounds good. You both did very well on this one.
