Liner Notes: 

Listening to a friend lament about how someone who was regarded as "true" turned out to be false. I would very much appreciate someone's interpretation of the lyrics. Please feel free to demo it.

Lyrics: 

Unnecessary feelings come over U
Every time U think about it
U wonder if it ever really was true
But U'd rather not think about it
Who will be there 4 U?
Who will really care?
U look around this city and it seems no 1's there
Who will really care 4 U?
The truth is he's out there
That same force, same feeling
Is present everywhere
When love returns I hope U have open arms
When love returns I hope U have open arms

2019 The Jelly Factory!



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

Strong lyric. Very honest and relatable. You capture the emotion so well. This could work well with a variety of genres including spoken word.

Nice lyrics - this bitterness mixed with an open ending

You ask for I interpretation - mild appropriate frustration, with concern/fear concerning a life partner.

It could be from many contexts - which is good since leaves the lyric open, or open for expansion - finding no love, superficial love, finding negativity-love.

As far as demo’g it; for a song like this ime without any context of genre like or have none at all for it - would be risky for the performer - let down regardless of if done “good” since, if the author did have an idea, RnB, Country, Tourch, RnR, etc.

I have a personal measure of a love song - it’s best if one sang it to their Goldfish, (or by the Goldfish Smile ) it still makes sense — is about “love” only, no other labels that get tagged on to “qualify” it, so to speak. Love is love (?).

Therefore, change he to it’s or as appropriate.

Very beautiful lyrics with great appeal and profound feelings. I too think they are open to different genres depending on what each songwriter hears. Very inspiring. They need very good performance and production and I guess many songwriters will feel it's hard to compete with what you'd offer Craig.

This one tells a story without being too specific, which is really difficult to do. The first four lines especially are real powerful and I love the contrast of "every time you think about it" with "you'd rather not think about it". Good work!
