Love Will Come Your Way
© 2016 D. Greenway & E. Kocol
 
Verse 1
As a kid, back then, growing up was a lonely place
Heavy bones, back then, greasy hair and a chubby face
 
Pre chorus
Then a friend said to me 
'One day you'll be happy' and...
 
Chorus
'Love will come your way
If you just wait on fate
Love will come your way
and not a day too late'
 
Verse 2
As a teen, back then, growing pains and a blotchy face
Just fourteen and then girls were like an alien race
 
Pre-chorus
Chorus
 
Bridge
So in time I raised my game
Found a girl who felt the same
 
Verse 3
Now I'm grown and grey, found a girl who never ran away
Had some kids now they see love in my old way
 
Final prechorus
Now I say to my son
'One day you'll find the one and......
 
Chorus x2

First thought; "This sounds radio ready!"
Nice song, story, instrumentation and arrangement. The vocals sit nicely in the mix and I really like how the drums stand out.
Throw in a C# on that bass line and you'll have the icing on the cake!
Great job by all!

Sounds nice here, perhaps a little lite in the lower mid's that could be me, quality mix as always, thanks for sharing.

great performances. all those 20000 plug-ins are working Ed.
personally i'd take the snare down a smidge in the verse and also change up the drum pattern at times. also maybe needs a change of the vocals in the final chorus just to up the ante and keep the attention piqued.
but it's a great 60s style pop song with a terrific mix.

toe-tapper for sure....the main vox has a bit too much radio-sound for my liking making it a bit harsh.....I get it...but just a bit much and in fact it would be fun to see it transform after the 2nd line...
 
you guys always make great tunes for sure...and this is no exception.
 
cool tune!

Daryl's vocals tend to get a little harsh when other monkeys are in the room.......
 
This was a fun song to do.......the Mrs. Mesh listened to it yesterday morning and told me this AM that she can't get this this tune out of her head. (I'm guessing that's a good thing). :))

Hi,
 
Very very very berry nice!
 
And that background vocal is tops in my book!

Music is not about notes and chords! My poem is not about the computer or monitor or letters! It's about how I was able to translate it from my insides!

Nice one, boys!  Y'all have a knack for catchy, in the pocket songs.  Not sure how you keep turnin' them out!
 
It sorta sounds kinda like pop-folk-rock.  At least that's what the guy next to the song said.

Thanks Wookster. Baps did a great job on this one.
He's never been accused of being lite in the lower mids - it maybe the cut of his trousers playing tricks with you :)

Very cool tune and well crafted.
 
I think I was hearing the same thing on the bass line Scotty was talking about in #2 above.  Aside from that, yeah, very well done.
