Damn You Were Good

Liner Notes: 

I had one idea and this came through instead. Needs music and vocals.


Damn You Were Good
© 2020 Cindy Prince

I only half believed you
When you said you were leavin'
With one kiss you were gone
So I better get used to believin'

I only wanted one thing
But you said you couldn't stay
Told me you had to get on that road
And you wanted it that way

I never wanted a ramblin' man
Said it would never happen to me
You were never part of my plan
But I chose not to see
I guess now I get it
You left like you said you would
But I can't really regret it
Because damn you were good

Long nights of passion
Just for the askin'

Deep down I guess I knew it
But I told myself a lie
So I'm gonna try my hardest
But tonight I want to die

Repeat chorus

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

That's awesome. It's got a Lee Ann Womack vibe. Love the bridge, really serves its role. The vulnerable qualities make it extra appealing. That's not easy to convey, nice job.

Isn't it fun when the alternative idea shows up instead? Smile Dang, Cindy, you're really on a roll! Poignant tale, sold simply and concisely, and that tight bridge whisks the whole thing off to another level.
Good work. Wink

Classic! I totally hear this as a 70s-era style country song. Simple enough lyrics, but lots of passion.
