How Did You Know?
on: January 14, 2019, 16:01:21
This is one of the first songs I ever wrote a long time ago now though I finished the last two verses last year and recently changed the rhythm of the strumming to mix things up a bit. Please let me know what you think to the song, i'm planning on recording it later this year probably keeping it really simple with just two guitar tracks, bass and some percussion.

How did you know exactly where I was going
How did you know there was no way of knowing
I guess you followed me when you said you don't believe
and when I reached the top only then you thought you'd stop

How I know exactly where you were going
How did I know there was no way of knowing
Wish I could turn back time, stop the clocks and you'd be mine
Take back the things i'd done but all that it's been and gone

How did we know exactly where we were going
How did we know there was no way of knowing
Look how you ended up no excuses and no luck
Now you're just a memory living on inside of me

I like this song, Kev. I think you should grind on it a bit and see where you can take it.

You know what might be a good exercise for you? Playing to a metronome or a click track. If you did that for a while it would help you hold your time when you are performing....although the subtle timing changes that you go through are a part of your style right now.

I love your game face when you are playing....also a big part of your performance presence.  :)

Thanks for checking it our kind sir. Yeah I struggle with timing on this one with it's rhythm, I should have it down by now, the song is over 20 years old (!) lol
Yea I look all serious don't I when i'm playing, it's a total contrast to how I am day to day :)

Liked - the lyrics go from "I" to "we" - that creates a cool vibe.
Hoping to hear the next phase of this, @realkevm

Hi  @realkevm

I like a lot the melody of "How did you know exactly where I was going
How did you know there was no way of knowing"

Regarding the entire song, I think the same as @Leonard Scaper and hoping the next phase
as @oorlab.
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times
