I stay awake


This song is co-written/edited with my good friend Rick John (One Big Love)

(Guitar INTRO)

You stood there for me
Just you, alone for me
I know, I don’t stand a chance
To say anything else but

I’m sorry for all I did
And the things from you I hid
Still, I beg you to
Leave me and move on

Smile, just keep smiling
Not for me

(Music stops)

Just for you

(Music begins)

I stay awake to see
Your innocent eyes closed
To see your pretty face
In your sleep
I love you even more (DUAL VOCALS)

No words can ever tell
My feelings for you
No words can make you stay
And forgive the things I said to you

I’m sorry for all I did
And the things from you I hid
Still, I beg you to
Leave me and move on

(Guitar bridge)

Smile and keep smiling
No, not for me
Only for you

You rained joy
Spreading into my life
But, I...

(Guitar solo)

Now, that you’re gone
Where do I turn
To fill the empty space
I still keep looking
For that lucky face
Girl, you just keep moving on
Until you find that one
Who’ll love you more

(Drums stop)

More, than I ever could (DUAL VOCALS)

(Piano + Guitar solo)
(Piano stops)
(Guitar strokes + Strings)

Thank you, Girl, for standing by me
For the faith you held in me
You know, your words, they can make
And, you know they can break me too
I’m down on my knees
And, beg you, oh please

(Drums begin)

I’m sorry for all I did
And the things from you I hid
Still, I beg you to
Leave me and move on
Move on (HIGH PITCH)

Smile, you just keep smiling (DUAL VOCALS)
Never for me
Only for you

Yea, Only for you

Stay sweet Katie (spoken EXTRO)

This is very different from the other stuff I've read here! But even then it's really good!

Thumbs up on another successful collaboration, Brosreview! :D

Don't we? I thought so too. Thanks to Rick who was supportive and anxious as well. I am quite happy with this one.

AJ-you give me too much credit. it was a great song before I ever knew of it. You just let me mess it up a bit to be nice. Thanks, Bro

Brosreview said...

@Rikkij - No, mate. You've been a great help. Don't ever derogate it with a word "mess". I will get back to you in a few weeks time for another song. I have got a plan in me head. Ta.

Loved your blog immensely..and already added myself to the followers list.

Good pieces truly, could almost visualize those being performed onstage.

Brosreview said...

@sudharm baxi - Oh, thank you!!! It is nice of you to write so. I shall visit your spot shortly.

SarahA said...

Aw sad, made me cry. But I always think something is well written, when it provokes some sort of emotion; whatever that emotion maybe.So a thumbs up from me, Ajey!

Brosreview said...

@SarahA - Thank you!!!

"But I always think something is well written, when it provokes some sort of emotion; whatever that emotion maybe."

So very true!!

Ohh Son!!

Woman in a Window said...

It's weird. I've never been here before, don't know you, but i have been reading Rick for a while, and I swear, I could hear that song while I read it. It was just on the edge of understanding for me, better than front and center. What a wonderful collaboration! I have to say though, it pains me that I can't hear it. Will someone play it, please? That would be lovely.

Preetilata【ツ】 said...

Brosreview said...

@Woman in a Window - Yea, I hope so too. May be sometime soon I will manage to find someone appropriate to play this one.

I am glad you like this one. Thank you!!!

Brosreview said...

@Preeilata - Sure, once the music is done, I shall upload it as well.

Thank you, I am glad you like this one.

this is what love is all about...living for the other.

"Girl, you just keep moving on
Until you find that one
Who’ll love you more"

it's very difficult for two people to work on a same poetry.. it needs rapport and thoughts that run alike :) as a team u guys have won thumbs up..

Rick and Ajey: a great song from two good hearts... Cheers!!! keep writing.
