Re: Tears In Our Eyes

Another "Tale Of Everyday Life" from our friend Tig. I think I may have said this before, but you have a knack of making the most mundane stuff into some really special songs. That is a talent I wish I had. Very nicely written, Jim.

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

Thanks Bill and Jan
Life gets in the way sometimes -   once in a while it gets difficult not to argue or blame..... but if there is love, you can find a way to get through it together.

Probably not the greatest song, but just what I was feeling on Sunday morning.
I appreciate the comments.

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

Your writing goes from strength to strength, I know I've said it before so I've said it again.
As I read through the song I could see you've written it from a young couples perspective, the first verse gave me the impression that it was about an older couple? I guess it fits all sizes.

Brill piece of work, i shall try playing it later.

Well done.

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

here is a quick recording of how I play this song.

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

beautiful!  smile  It's a simple song, but powerful thought behind it.  Thanks for sharing Jim, and thanks Phill for the recording!

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

I can hear millions of couples world wide saying that is us on hearing your song TIG. Phill has made an excellent cover of it. When working to pay our bills that same job differant day would also apply also to the single working person trying to get on with  life.. Those lyrics cover the experience of many all around the globe .

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

NOW POSTED ON SOUNDCLOUD. smile:

So many people are missing out on this collaboration by not knowing what you two are capable of. The writing and performance are both spot on and I LOVED the harmonies and Dondra loved what I call the "hook". "Never go to sleep with tears in our eyes"....... It's a hug and holding hands song and it's righteous as hell, boys! So happy to know you both and the lyrics and music you bring us!

WOW I GOTTA GIVE THAT ONE A GO!
Really powerful and so spot on.  Nice job!

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

Phill you didn't mutilate Tigs song you just took it to where it should be a wonderful Transatlantic  performance.

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

Re: Tears In Our Eyes

My God that is so touching. The video complements your words which are written so well to a tee! I'd forgotten about that song so it didn't feel like me performing it then I could listen to it as a third party I think all the errors were on the vocals. Well done Jim, a true talent.
