It's a brand new day out there so I thought I'd give this old tune a fresh start. I couldn't have done it without the expertise of Michael Zaneski! He gave this song LIFE, man!! SO very pleased with this demo. I hope you are, too.

PS- Hey Tammy.... I took your advice... ;-)

"Wanna Stay in Love (With You)" (c)2016 by David Gill

You're so beautiful it hurts
It's just like staring at the sun
But I can't look away
I can't look away
When I'm in your arms
I'm like a child having fun
and I just wanna stay
I just wanna stay

'cause you make me feel that there is
so much more to learn
There's so much more to learn
And you keep me safe from all this
insanity
Like we will always be
in love

I'm looking toward the future
but I'm stuck at here and now
It's nice to have you near
It's nice to have you near
I don't have all the answers
but we'll make it through somehow
and stay together, dear
let's stay together, dear

'cause you give me hope that there is
so much more than this
there's so much more than this
and you show me things to feed my
insanity
that's why we'll always be
in love

Push me, pull you
hold you tightly
that's what we do
daily nightly
on and on we'll keep on fighting
us against the world
us against the world!

You're so beautiful it hurts
it's just like staring at the sun
but I can't look away
I can't look away
When I'm in your arms
I'm like a child having fun
and I just wanna stay
I just wanna stay

In love...
I just wanna stay in love
I wanna stay in love

(repeat 3 x's)

with you....

Likable song.

Personal preference would be to slow it 2-4 bpm and give the vocals a little more space.

Great song!

Upbeat. A love song! Great feel.

Some real gems in the lyrics. I liked the "like staring at the sun" image. Had to smile at the

"Push me, pull you
hold you tightly
that's what we do
daily nightly "

bit. Damn!!

Good stuff man.

John

Hey guys,

Nice work here, with this uptempo song. I liked the melody and some nice lyric lines for sure. I might prefer not having all the repeat lines, especially earlier in the song--but that is just opinion, and not sure how that would work without delving into the music as written.

Nice job, cool song for sure!

steady-eddie.

Martin, Ricki, John (Vtoutlander), Eddie, Calvin, and Tom:

Thanks, all. Dave's songs are fun to arrange and produce and sing harmonies on. I get to unleash my inner-child that loves a good pop song.

I love how it jumps right in and hooks you from the get go.

Thanks also Dave Gill for all your encouragement and positivity. smile

Mike
