Hi,  Here's a song I've been working on with moptop's music.   We'd love your comments.

 

I Still Think of Her

Patty Lakamp © Copyright 2017

 

V1

Floating in a fog between sleep and awake

I caught a glimpse of my first girlfriend Kate

I’m crazy in love with the girl by my side

But when memories hit me, I go for a ride

 

V2

Kate and her freckles that summer in Maine

I explored all I could of her lovely terrain

Got a ring on my finger and I’m playin’ it straight

But sometimes out of nowhere, I still think of Kate

 

Chorus:

I was lucky in love and I found a great wife

She’s the one that I want for the rest of my life

But I still have my past and that one special girl

And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her  

 

V3

Innocent sweethearts, just barely sixteen

A faded old rowboat was our limousine   

She kissed me and called me her private chauffeur

Sometimes out of nowhere, I still think of her

 

Chorus:

I was lucky in love and I found a great wife

She’s the one that I want for the rest of my life

But I still have my past and that one special girl

And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her

 

Bridge:

Nights I’m awake and it’s quarter to three

I lie there reflecting on my history

I find myself wondering, hopefully

If somewhere, sometimes, she thinks of me? 

 

Chorus:

I was lucky in love and I found a great wife

She’s the one that I want for the rest of my life

But I still have my past and that one special girl

And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her

Yes, I still have my past and that one special girl

And sometimes out of nowhere I still think of her

I just listened to both of those songs. How very flattering to even be mentioned in the same paragraph!

This all reads nicely to me and has a sort of old fahioned innocence to it. 

I liked 'a faded old rowboat was our limousine'. On listening i found it has a breezy summery feel which is always good. The only thing i would pick up on is the image you've used to accompany the song doesn't match the contents of the lyrics as i was expecting them to be older - 'i explored all i could of her lovely terrain'. Or is that being picky! 

Good 'un,

Phil.

Philjo,

 

Thanks for the positive comments.  You're right--old-fashioned innocence.  And yes, in the lyrics, the two are teenagers "just barely sixteen."  The image accompanying the post is of two cute little kids in a rowboat, picking up on the rowboat image.  Nothing more than that.

 

Glad you liked the song.

 

Patty

Beautiful descriptive lyrics.  I read them before listening to the music and envisioned a completely different style that was more ballad type for these lyrics.  The music is nice, but has a different feeling to me than what the lyrics demand.

I can hear it as a ballad, too, but I find this melody and beat very appealing.  I'm glad you like the lyrics. Thanks.

Love the lyric.   I think it's a damn good one.
