Lyrics
My Baby’s Not There

Red cedars falling,
Store shelves are bare,
Skid Road still stinking,
Sirens declare!
Bow to the storm,
Neons deformed,
But my baby’s not there…
My baby’s not there

Midnight decisions,
We can work things out,
Gale force incisions,
Brought seeds of doubt,
Cry with the rain,
With deep down pain,
Slipped through the road blocks,
To Rendezvous Clock,
But my baby’s not there…
My baby’s not there.

Cell phone don’t work,
All high lines are down,
I’m going berserk,
She can’t be found,
Worst hurricane,
June record rain,
Where is my pretty one?
Where did she run?

Midnight decisions,
We can work things out,
Gale force incisions,
Brought seeds of doubt,
Cry with the rain,
With deep down pain,
Slipped through the road blocks,
To Rendezvous Clock,

But my baby’s not there…
My baby’s not there.

Where are you now my sweet?
Did you fly with the wind?
We had planned to meet,
At Rendezvous Clock on Gastown Street…

Classic song structure
Really cool bluesy vibe to this. Almost like a slow boogie. Nice groove to it and excellent production top to bottom. Very full and rich vocal sound too. Enjoyed it!

I remember how much I liked "Rosa's Cantina"; you really have style musically. Perfect easygoing, not-a-care-in-the-world vocals . . . love the guitar solo at 2:47. I also really like the soft, silky piano . . . it's a boost to the arrangement without being flashy. Good work.

Cool harmonies
Cool harmonies and the piano really keeps the song ticking along very nicely. The guitar is very tasty as well. Great mix and master. Well done (again), Cees. Warm regards, Peter.

You guys do good work together, Cees
Love the laid back bluesy feel of this and the production is to die for. I've listened to a lot of your tunes my friend and I really think this is one of your best efforts ever. A nod to Stan for the great lyrics..

Great collaboration you two.
