I Wait For Love (3 chord Song Competition)

Ok, I'm going to show my hand really early.  This is my three chord song :-)  it doesn't fit strictly into the rules of the competition because I've used the 3rd chord more than once but hey, I'm pleasantly surprised with this song and I think it would fit nicely on my proposed album 'The Jagged Coast' as a message of optimism.  I don't mind not being able to win the competition as I didn't strictly follow the rules but I'd still like to thank Alexander as I wouldn't have written this little song had I not had a bash at the three chord song competition.

I won't be able to find time to complete this song according to the rules so here it is.  Best of luck to everyone else who has managed to be a little more disciplned.

I'm off to bed now but will pop back later to review one or two songs currently on the forum.  :)


Wait For Love

Take this heart, keep it safe.
I will entrust you with it's battered shell.
In time, I will return from hell.

Take my heart, keep it safe,
Find it a resting place, away from pain
and if I never love again
then, I would be lost, adrift at sea.

Tell the world, love is true.
May these words comfort you, guide you through
until we share a lover's kiss.

Tell the world, love is true
Some words, you can't undo, see it through.
And if I never love gain
Then I would be lost,  adrift at sea.

I don't know you,
All you've lived through
But I will pray that we meet.
If life condemns us
to live with sadness,
that's surely madness to me

And so I wait, I wait, I wait for love.

Excellent demo you got you WD.  If I were you,  ;) ;) i'd forget about this competition and develop this into one of your wondrous love songs..... It's unusual to hear you play so live and raw:  this means that you have passion for this song.  So take it back to your studio, throw in some basil, garlic a little bit of cheeky garam masala,,,,,,, and deliver unto us your best......we await Sir Paul

amazing what you can come up with only using 3 chords, nice guitar playing sounds cool, kinda dark jazzy folky sounding! am sure this will be in on the production line one day to get it sounding bigger and better but nice little stripped down acoustic song!
fly away and find my peace of mind...

Very lovely WD :) it is amazing what you can do with just 2-3 chords :) you have such a distinctive sound and it's really quite beautiful :) I love the lyrics and you've make them sound so delicate with the melody and how you sing it :) thanks  :) :) CS

Lovely song Mr Deeds  ;D

It'll definitely fit in with the album, adrift at sea...

I really like your stripped back recordings, I can see the merit in full productions as well but this is lovely as it is :)

Again, another song I'd not instantly think only has three chords, very clever indeed

New competition "3 Chord Song" who is not too fearful
