Lyrics: 

You left
this morning
without
a warning

was it me?
i think so
don't tell me
i know

come home, tonight
cause i'll be there
come home, tonight
or don't, that's fine

your smile
was fading
without
a warning

was it you?
don't think so
i'll tell you
you know

come home, tonight
cause i'll be there
come home, tonight
or don't, that's fine

I love the crisp concise lyrics and how effectively they deliver the ambivalent message - well crafted! Missed the demo though!

Your calm way of singing fits the lyrics perfectly. Nice one for a quicky, plus it has room to grow. The chord progression invites some to be made extra melodies.

lyrical feedback only
i do like songs that have the whole "less is more" vibe going for them, plus repetition of pre-choruses etc. I would've like to see one more verse though

I have written in this style myself (LIM) and what i tend to do is put the nuts and bolts line by line to see if anything is missing or unfinished - (unless that 'unfinished' feeling was what you were going for?)

v1 - you left this morning without a warning
v2 - your smile was fading without a warning
v3 - what would you say next to complete the circle? (or triangle even Smile )
