2 Country Lyrics

Post by tresero » Thu May 02, 2019 8:07 am

Wondering what you all think of either of these. I'm deciding which one to demo and only have the budget for one. On a side note, these have already been demo'd though it was long ago, and I had some interest in one of them (won't say which so I don't influence you), but wanted an updated arrangement.

As always, thanks in advance!

If I Had A Dime
Why do I love you when you treat me like you do
everybody wonders just what I see in you
Why can't I just walk out and tell you that we're through?
Cause when you finally get to lovin' me there ain't no one but you

If I had a dime for every time you cheated
If I had a dime each time I was mistreated
If I had a dime every time you didn't care
Then honey, I'd be a multimillionaire

Why do I let you walk over me
Why can't I tell you to give me back the key
Why don't I change my number and then you couldn't call
Cause I'd rather love you now and then, then not love you at all

Chorus

Why do I let you break my heart in two
Why do I cry each night that I'm missing you
Why do I take you back when you play around
Cause when you finally get to lovin' me I'm the richest girl in town

Chorus

Misery Loves Company
Verse
Last call for the evenin’, closin’ time again
Let me buy you one more for the road.
Tell me ‘bout your sorrows and I’ll help relieve your pain
Cause I can tell that you’ve been hurtin’ too.

Chorus
Misery Loves Company that’s why I’m here with you.
Together we could soak up all these blues.
Misery Loves Company and I don’t mind the misery,
as long as the company is you.

Verse
You’ve been so warm and friendly, we’ve talked away our tears.
I was hopin’ I could take you home.
I promise to be gentle and help you when I can.
Maybe we can start up something new

I would choose Misery Loves Company.
Those lyrics feel like a setup that pays off with a fresh take on a cliche.
I really like the lines "Misery Loves Company and I don’t mind the misery, as long as the company is you."

The other lyrics feel like a setup that pays off with just a cliche.

I hope that proves helpful in some way.

Best wishes. :)

Really well done. Definitely a throwback vibe . . . but beautifully sung and produced.

Is that your voice?

Thanks for sharing!

I wish that was my voice :) Due to contract stuff, I can't disclose the singer, but it was done in Nashville.

Thanks for listening!

Gotcha. Really nice singing for sure - worth the $'s or Splits or whatever it took.
