Demo: 

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

I selected this one song from 100/180 because it was an enjoyable collab with Maddie, and I don't think she is participating in 50/90.

Instruments: Yamaha piano, Martin Backpacker, Moog vst.

Lyrics: 

(C) Acousticmaddie 2020

1. If I went out there and nobody knew me
Would you still be there
Would you be mine?
If time held my young years and shades held my inside
Would you still see me
Tell me it will be fine?
Chorus
Would you still be here?
Would you still see me
Please tell me the lies
That I need to hear
Would you still be here?
Would you still see me
Just say that you´d be here
To push back my fear
2. And will you still tell me that I'm a nice guy?
Please say you´ld lie
To make me feel strong
honey do tell me that our love is eternal
When distance break our hearts
And my nights are so long
Chorus
Would you still be here?
Would you still see me
Please tell me the lies
That I need to hear
Would you still be here?
Would you still see me
Just say that you´d be here
To push back my fear
Bridge Out
Say …
Would you still be there if I was nothing
Oh babe
if I were just a shade of my now?
Would you still hold me, and tell me you love me
Oh babe
When I fade in the hours of sand?
Would you still be here?
Would you still be here?
Would you still see me
Please tell me the lies



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

This is a very tender rendering of Maddie's lyrics. I've worked with her a few times and writing vulnerable lyrics is not an area she ventures into often. You handle said vulverablitliy with such care and emotion. I hear it in your vocals. I totally dig this.

Very nice arrangement of the lyrics, all of the parts work well together.

I miss Maddie around here, too. I signed up for that 100/180 thing and then did...nothing. Looks like I missed some great music over there.

THIS is superb! Nice job, guys.
