Here is the Finished Product....You guys may recall I posted an simple Acoustic/Vocal Version of this. I decided to go all in on this....I sing the lead VOX & lend a hand to the female background vocalist in spots I felt needed beefing up.

Here is the Final Studio version. https://soundcloud.com/stevealtonian/first-love-last-love

First Love, Last Love
© 2019 Steve Altonian

Moonlight dances upon your hair
Your eyes light up the sky
I slip your hand inside of mine
You hold me tight and smile a little smile

I feel your heart beating underneath my skin
I kiss your tender lips and whisper in your ear

First love, last love
Sharing dreams and memories
First love, last love
Sometimes baby, love is meant to be

I’ve come to call you my best friend
You’re a candle to my soul
A yellow rose in the desert snow
I have grown from the seeds you’ve sown

Girl you know me a bit better than myself
You gently show me exactly who I am

First love, last love
Sharing dreams and memories
First love, last love
Sometimes baby, love is meant to be

BRIDGE
Still can taste that first kiss
It gets sweeter and sweeter all the time
You’re my favorite song
My love keeps burning strong…….for you

First love, last love
Sharing dreams and memories
First love, last love
Sometimes baby, love is meant to be
Sometimes baby, love is meant to be...

Seriously good vocals and harmonies. This is a real pro production. Everything works for me from the lyrics to the arrangement.

Definitely liking that snare sound and that first delicate electric guitar is pretty tasty as well.

Beautifully ended too. This is benchmark stuff.

You have a great tone and vocal. It's authentic and professional sounding.
I like the female backing vocals in the mix and the way the song builds. It's very 80's and not very contemporary but hey a song is a song and this is incredible all round.

Totally pro, both performance and production. A solid song as well, can't really fault anything. One to be proud of for sure, well done!
