Liner Notes: 

So I saw some lyrics written by @DeannaSweidel and her daughter @KelsiCummings and I thought they were fantastic. I asked if I could add some music but requested that Kelsi sing - heard her do a song with Deanna and it was great. Anyways, as you know, people have got real lives to lead outside of the 50/90 and Kelsi hasn't quite got the vocals recorded - although I am hoping she will still do so!!!!

Given all that and the 50/90 is about to finish, I was given permission to post what was recorded - I replaced my guide vocal track with another, better recorded (not necessarily better sounding though) track.

I hope you enjoy, I had a lot of fun and frustration recording this one (note to self, do not put 3 different tempo's on a track ever again!)

Please please, if you haven't checked out @DeannaSweidel then do so, her lyrics are amazing. And I know @KelsiCummings is a newbie to the 50/90 madness by check out the vocals on her track, stunning - you'll understand why I wanted them for this song.

Lyrics: 

Would You

(c) 2020 Sweidel/Cummings

V1
There is no scenario
That ends well for my heart
There has to be a way
This doesn’t fall apart

V2
It gets harder every day
To hide the way I feel
So If I asked for more
Would you make it real?

Ch
Do I fight for love
Or do I just forget?
Do I stand my ground or
Live with my regret?
If I said I wanted you
Would you say it too?

V3
I wish I had the words
To make you fall for me
I think I always knew
I was just too blind to see

Ch
Do I fight for love
Or do I just forget?
Do I stand my ground or
Live with my regret?
If I said I needed you
Would you say it too?

Solo

Bridge
You and I could be so great
How do I unseal our fate

Ch
Do I fight for love
Or do I just forget?
Do I stand my ground or
Live with my regret?
If I said I loved you
Would you say it too?
If I said I loved you
Would you say it too?



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

Lovely work by all three of you! The lyrics are very relatable and the bridge ties it all together nicely. Your setting fits the lyrics very well and your guitar work is amazing!
