Description
This is a little bossa-blues for you. I am on the vocals, guitars, bass, and keyboards. In other words, I have no one but myself to blame.

I posted this song yesterday, but I made some changes to it and reposted it.

Lyrics
I'm walking down the Champs Elysee
Thinking of the things I could say
But everything is stormy and gray
When I'm without you

I'm sitting with my hat in my hand
Remembering the things that we'd planned
But everything's a castle of sand
When I'm without you
When I'm without you

Any kind of fool could see
We were so right
It was always you and me
Throughout the night
Knowing it could end this way
Makes me think that nothing can be forever
Now I see
That you're the one for me

When I'm Without You
I love the crisp bossa rhythm, the warm bass and the tasteful keys. Gentle vocal. A guitar solo wouldn't go astray, I think... Beautiful!

Thanks, Philip. I agree. A guitar solo would make a good addition to this piece.

Hmmm...
You are right. I changed my own lyrics. This song started out as a chord progression and a single phrase. I've been noodling around with it for so long, I forgot the lyrics.

Great
I surely did enjoy this one. Love the Bossa Nova sound and you did it very well. You have a great voice. This is the first one of your songs I have heard.
A shame that good stuff like this can get past you. I will listen to your other songs now.

Lovely vocal
This is a great track, but the standout for me is the vocal. You have a really beautiful voice, very soulful. Only thing for me, I prefer you not doubled tracked ! Wonderful!

I am glad that you liked the track, and thank you very much for the constructive criticism. I wanted to add a bit of energy to the bridge, so I thought I would double-track the vocal part to make it pop out a bit. Perhaps this moves it outside of the genre? At any rate, thanks for stopping by to listen and comment.

This recalls 80s Euro pop to me. Probably not yer starting point, but I hear it... The double track sound in the vocals is splendid and makes the track stand out.
