Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Morning voice. Quick write. Lousy demo. Pure metalfoot. To get back in the songwriting groove I'll probably do a lot of these morning writes.

A thank-you song to someone who hopefully will recognize I wrote it for them.

guitar, voice (such as it is): me

Lyrics: 

I was down in a hole
And I wondered
If anyone even cared

And you did

I was stuck in my head
And I wondered
If anyone knew at all

And you did

Yeah, I know my troubles
And problems are not yours
Yeah, I know my weakness
And foibles are not much
Yeah I know I'm not worth it at all
But you cared
But you cared

I had thought that I was
Of no importance
To anyone at all

But you cared

I had thought I could leave
And nobody
Would notice I'd even gone

But you cared

Yeah, I know my troubles
And problems are not yours
Yeah, I know my weakness
And foibles are not much
Yeah I know I'm not worth it at all
But you cared
But you cared

This was an easy listen - easy enough to listen to twice anyway. It's done quickly but it gives a good sense of the song I think. It had some really nice features - that verse is really nice. Really like the chord before the "and you did" - also quite nice to ping pong between those two chords before the "but you cared" for quite so long. My temptation would have been to take "but you cared" up as high as my voice could go when it finally comes, some kind of pay off for the build up - but whether my instincts align with good songwriting sense is completely unclear to me. I really liked it, cheers. I'm jealous of people who can just bash a song off in the morning like this. If I do that the words are almost literally absolute nonsense, and probably reference excrement at least once.

This is sweet and direct and really wonderful! Sometimes those early-morning-before we edit things' are the truest and bravest of all. nice work for sure, and welcome back!

Really excellent chord progression here for sure.
Sweet lyrics.
Like lovely sweet, not "cool, dude" sweet.
I think the unpolished nature of this tune really adds a sense of honesty and directness; straight from the heart.
Enjoyed very much.

I swear by morning writes! Creativity has free rein. Your head doesn’t get in the way because your brain isn’t quite engaged yet and you can’t overthink it. Great thank you note in a song Wink

That’s a heartfelt song that’s gonna mean a lot to that caring person. Morning writing seems to work well for you. You are good at crank’n out the songs. Very authentic feel to this song.

This is really nice! I agree with Wolf too about this being a very special kind of love song, and a reminder that even the "strong" ones need checking in on sometimes too. I'm a big believer in the early morning/first take is usually the best most genuine take as well, even if it may sound a little "rough" this doesn't btw.
