a Day Without You

Submitted by Marco on Thu, 05/12/2022 - 23:26

...finished the lyrics of 'a Day Without You', I've based the English lyrics on the original song I wrote in Dutch, (don't ever think translating a song is easy, coz it's not!) But I think I did alright. I played the English version in F Majeur key, whereas the Dutch version is in full G.  It's still a trial-version, just to "feel" the lyrics. I'll try to get it out in distribution before I leave for Spain this weekend.

Anyway, I hope you'll like it, let me know what you think!!!

'Each Day Without You'
© AkAMAWA

sometimes I live these complicated moments
I then prefer pretending you're not around
still there is not a day that goes by
that you are not on my mind

I know that it's been ages since we parted
but I still just cannot leave you behind

a day without you
is a day that is imprisonin' me
I cherish every moment of freedom
that thinking of you is givin' me

oh well by now I don't really know better
after all it's been this way like since forever
but a day without you
is a day I don't really feel

sometimes when I'm on my own
alone and when I think there's no-one's watchin'
I talk to you, I talk a lot,
until I hear you asking
why now and not before?

I stop in my tracks 
I laugh it away and say
maybe we weren't as together before
but the truth I don't wanna know
coz of the pain that I try to ignore

I rather listen to the wind in the trees
to your voice whisperin' through magic leafs

a day without you
is a day that is imprisonin' me
I cherish every moment of freedom
that thinking of you is givin' me

oh well by now I don't really know better
after all it's been this way like since forever
but a day without you
is a day I don't really feel

and the truth, no I don't wanna know
coz of the pain that I try to ignore

I rather listen to the wind in the trees
to your voice whisperin' through magic leafs

a day without you
is a day that is imprisonin' me
I cherish every moment of freedom
that thinking of you is givin' me

oh well by now I don't really know better
after all it's been this way like since forever
but a day without you
is a day I don't really feel

I rather listen to the wind in the trees
to your voice whisperin' to me

a day without you
is a day...
