G          Em                   C             G
I saw someone in a parking lot
G         Em               C               D
reminded me of you quit a lot
G               Em                        C                                 G
sat there in my truck and watched them walk on by
G               Em                       D                    G
after all these years it still can make cry

I often wonder how you've been
do you ever think of me now and then
I never hear from you , and you dont come to town
but still think of you even though your not around


no faded pictures will there be
no time for birthdays no time for you and me
no fond fare wells      sincere apologies
just an empty hole full bitter memories

rolled down my window threw my hat down on the seat
and let the wind blow voices from the street
they try to tell me everything will be all right
and in the morning maybe we will see the light

out of tune out of key and out of touch

Re: the parking lot

Excellent song Mojo I enjoyed listening to it on soundcloud your a top notch songwriter and performer, Your clever way with lyrics is outstanding.     

Re: the parking lot

This is really, really good, Mojo ... the last verse really pulls it together, and brings a kind of relaxed closure to what the individual is experiencing. Nice work, dude!     

Re: the parking lot

Hits me right in the heart buddy. You are so very correct in this feeling.as its something I am beginning to deal with. the true division of lives.     

Music is a tribal experience, and it is about connection.  Figure out how to reach in and change their emotions. Learn how to put them in a mood. That’s what music is for.”-JH.
“..And remember, a song should contain only one story, or one message, told from a single point of view” - DG
Its the little mistakes that become great. and when it falls in place, the feeling is  indescribable.

Re: the parking lot

I think we've all been through that seeing an ex in a crowd? Wondering if you've missed out or lucky escape?

I should have given it a listen before replying but I wanted to get my thoughts down before losing them. So off I go to SoundCloud.     

Edited to add following....

You've made a great recording of a great song, well done. Your voice and guitar playing are superb as is your writing.

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