The other day I received a lovely comment on my 'My Compositions' page from Pete Walmsley at Wiltshire Hotpot. He said that he had penned a few words to my composition affectionately known as 'Song A' and would I like to see them! Well the answer was most definitely yes, and Pete sent these over for me to take a look at.
Now although, the verses that Pete had written were lovely, I just couldn't get them to quite fit with the song. As I explained to Pete this was most probably because he was listening to the whole song with instrumental bits and all and without a copy of the music in front of him he wasn't to know which bits needed words! Pete's words did however inspire me to write a little ditty myself. I knew as soon as I wrote the song, the lyrics needed to be sombre as you can just feel it in the music. So here it is, hankies at the ready as it's a sad one...............
Listen to...... 'I Never Said Goodbye'
'I Never Said Goodbye'
When we look, to the past I'm sure we thought our time would last We'd always have another day A day to say goodbye Now that day has gone and so The way I felt, you'll never know I loved you more than words could say I hoped you loved me too Who can say, who's to tell What you felt in your heart Now we're apart Well I guess I'll never know, never know Life goes by, in a glance We should have talked while we had the chance But now you're gone and all I know (is) I never said goodbye Music & Lyrics (c) Rachel Griffiths 2010
Thanks again to Pete for 'inspiring' me and I will be intending to use some of Pete's own verses wherever possible in some of my other songs.
