Liner Notes: 

Here's the 'seed song', as it were, for the Fake It Challenge. Now that there are a handful of other renditions out there, I'm releasing this one. It is not to be seen as the definitive version, by any means.

Lyrics: 

Truly Amazing
CC0 - Alex Klages 2020 for 50/90's "Fake It" Challenge

VERSE 1:
C E7
Every time I look at you
C E7
I feel my heart awake anew
F C G
You're the best that's happened to me
C E7
Every time that we go out
C E7
I just want to stop and shout
F C G
There's nowhere else that I would rather be

CHORUS:
Em C
Because you make me feel whole again
Em C
You are my best and truest friend
F C G
Your love, your love is truly amazing
Em C
Yes you make me want to run for miles
Em C
I would do anything to see your smiles
F C G
Your love, your love is truly amazing

VERSE 2 (same chords as verse 1):
Every little thing you do
Shows me that your love is true
I want to spend forever with you
Every little thing you say
Makes me feel it's all OK
I'm so glad to be here with you

CHORUS:
Because you make me feel whole again
You are my best and truest friend
Your love, your love is truly amazing
Yes you make me want to run for miles
I would do anything to see your smiles
Your love, your love is truly amazing

BRIDGE:
Am Em
I don't feel alone anymore
Am Em
Now I know what my heart is for
Am Em
I don't walk alone in the night
D G
You're always there to shine your light

CHORUS:
Because you make me feel whole again
You are my best and truest friend
Your love, your love is truly amazing
Yes you make me want to run for miles
I would do anything to see your smiles
Your love, your love is truly amazing

You've got a bounce in that guitar that I didn't expect. And your vocal is kind of a cool, laid back, matter of fact tone which... well I picture a guy in a leather jacket and shades singing this. I love that little... not quite trill in "amazing"

Ah but it is regenerative and quite multiplicative. A great start to spawn Fake It songs!

I really like your arrangements. It hints at Old Time Rock and roll, doo-wop and skiffle.

I've no idea what the fake it challenge is, but this is a catchy little number.

Fun to hear your original take after finishing my own, your version sounds a lot more optimistic and upbeat compared to my version. The guitar has a nice bounce, and a cool vocal delivery

This is cool! Really laid back vocal delivery contrasts great with that guitar strum that had me tapping my foot right out of the gate! hard to not feel bad for butchering someone elses work, but I'll try Biggrin

Really enjoyed this, thanks, was a fun challenge, even if I did just basically read it through once and push record Biggrin , and not something I would ever write for myself. Has been fun listening to everyone else's take on it!

It's cool to hear the arrangement you had in mind after having finished my own! I love the bouncy rhythm of the guitar and how smoothly the lyrics flow together here. Nice work!
