Thanks @DanJames

here are the lyrics:

Next to me


You better tell everyone
My heart is numb since he is gone
But I promise he just doesnít care 

My head is going down the drain
I think I`ll never be the same
Well sometimes, life is just not fair

Have you ever loved someone
And you knew from the beginning it is wrong
So my dear, just forget and donít look back      
You feel the same, so please sit next to me

Your heart is broken too
You ask yourself how to get through
Well baby, thereís no recipe

I recommend some medicine
No work, no stress, no discipline
Alcohol works too, you will see
 
Have you ever loved someone
And you knew from the beginning it is wrong
So my dear, just forget and donít look back      
You feel the same, so please sit next to me

And we talk, we talk, we talk all night
We struggle together and we fight
But have you ask yourself what youíre fighting for

So my dear, just forget and donít look back
We feel the same, so please sit next to me

such a high FEEL GOOD level this song has, i think it is excellent, superb

a repost from me on SC

mix sounds stellar too, perhaps just a little tiny bit extra wetness / reverb on Katze voice? i don't know....

Man, I LOVE this tune!!! The way it gets started with that kick drum and fine sparse guitar work really sets the table for Katze's perfect vocals.

What a great production this is! I had to hit replay immediately.

@Katze Konigsberg @DanJames A nice and upbeat singalong reresentative of the C&W genre, well sung and with a vocal tone that sounds like it was made for it. The guitar work shows great craftsmanship. Splendid work.

@DanJames  @Katze Konigsberg  Just catching up with the already finished entries for the collab challenge.
Tbh: good thing I'm only checking this out now, because otherwise I maybe would've chickened out :p
Great songwriting. Very catchy hook in the chorus. Loving the country feel in this one.
Your voice and music make a great pair. More, please!

Dear Dan and Katze,

This is my first 'review' - I joined the forum yesterday. And what a delight that the first song I listened to was yours! You really made me smile. What gorgeous composition and lyrics. It made me think that if this is the level of contributions to this forum I set the bar very high for myself. Thanks for this happy moment. Hope to hear more from you both.
