Then


(Bass Solo)
(Instrumentals – 3 minutes)

Before you left the place
I should have asked you to stay
You could have come
You did not have to pay

I should have stopped you from going on
I should have stopped you from moving on

(Music stops)

Then....

(Music begins - Guitar solo)
(Instrumentals – 3 minutes)

Before I left the green signals
I should have asked you to come along
You could have come
We could have driven along

I could have stopped you from going on
I could have stopped you from moving on

(Music stops)

Then...

(Music begins – Piano solo)
(Instrumentals – 2 minutes)

You’d be here where you belong

Miss you mate (X3 – spoken)

Brosreview said...

@Shadow - Thanks a lot.

Brosreview said...

@me - I don't blame you. You must be a newbie.

Even thought the song is quite straightforward, it seems like you chose not to imagine.

me said...

dude,
don't be cross.
and also. a song should influence a pro or a newbie in the same way.

and ya, i am new to these kind of songs but i m not new to good music.
not saying that yours is not good music.

cheers

Make Me Disappear said...

Well, this is good, but very unlike your usual works.

@me - No, I ain't cross. What makes you think I am? Everyone are entitled to their opinion. And, I respect that.

Yes, the influence needs to similar but the understanding will be different. And, that in turn shall alter the influence.

Yes, I am sure you are acquainted with good music. But, I am not sure what you classify as good music. Tastes are different, aren't they?

This song is quite straightforward and plain because it is supposed to be so.

I am sad that you did not choose to feel and understand it.

Brosreview said...

@Make Me Disappear - Yes, it is different. I am glad you spotted that out.

This is quite "alternative" (clue). Simple, plain but carries the weight that most of my songs do.

Make Me Disappear said...

One more thing, did you wrote it from the point of view of a Cab driver?
haha..don't mind, i just felt it

Brosreview said...

@Make Me Disappear - Clearly, misunderstood. Heh. Thanks for reading!!!

Khaled KEM said...

Hi Ajey,

A good one. I can see the symbol in it. You feel us with the narrator feeling of regret.
Very simple but thoughtful.

judith ellis said...

Nice, Brosreview.

Khaled brings up a good point about regret. It's often a subtle nagging feeling; it is often not grand or verbose. This is the simplicity evoked here.

Thank you.

Brosreview said...

@Khaled KEM - Thanks a lot. I am glad that you understood the musical symbols and the feel.

Brosreview said...

@Judith - You too have successfully understood or related to my or rather a common "nagging" and "subtle" feel of "regret". Thank you.

Rikkij said...

Walker said...

This was great.
I feel like i was perched somewhere listening to you thoughts as you spoke them

Brosreview said...

@Rikkij - Thanks mate

Brosreview said...

@Walker - Thank you. I am glad you felt the personal touch in it.

Meena said...

I really like this :)

Brosreview said...

@Meena - Thank you

maekitso said...

That's a very delicate little piece and I can imagine it complimenting an acoustic guitar ballad or piano arrangement very nicely.

Brosreview said...

@maekitso - Thanks a lot. You know what, after you mentioned the musical instruments that can complement this song, I instantly began imagining it in my mind.

Umm, I primarily wrote it for an "Alternative Rock" genre.

Saadi said...

One word; Immensely Touching!
Okay, so that's two!! I hope you don't care! ;)

Brosreview said...

@Saadi - Nah, I don't!!! Haha. Thanks bhai.

Me, myself and I said...

This is nice. Different, but different is good. I like!! :)
Oh and i love the music that accompanies every post!!

Brosreview said...

@Me, myself and I - Thank you!!!
