1st verse
No more cryin, no more trying, no more lying to myself
she didn't want me, she didn't need me, saving her lovin for somebody else
bridge
misguided affections bring only rejections she  put a dagger in the heart of my love
2nd verse
Don't wanna believe it, but I can't deny it, why don't these feelings just go away
it cuts like a razor but it don't even Phase her, stormy days are here to stay
(repeat bridge)
3rd verse
When you laughing, everyones with  you, but when your crying, you cry alone
I begged and I pleaded, but I wasn't needed, she's got a heart made, out of stone
(repeat bridge) solo out smile smile smile

Re: Dagger

Great song Russell     

Re: Dagger

THAT IS ONE OF THE BEST SONGS EVER  WRITTEN HERE ON CHORDIE IN MY HUMBLE OPINION RUSSELL !

Short, to the point, clear message, perfect rhyme scheme.
Put that together with a musician who is talented and right in his wheel house bc he is playing what he loves - and you've got a fantastic song production !



Superbly done Russell - if this was put out by a famous band it would go high on the charts !

Thanks for sharing it.

Re: Dagger

The whole package is just amazing. So clever and so talented.     

Thick as two short planks

Re: Dagger

Well done Russell,  I've always enjoyed your music and style.     

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".
