Marvin…

This is a super ballad (excellent singer BTW) and I could see someone taking this one big time. By the way, your demo recording quality is consistently very nice and top shelf. And I like the story line but I really really like the music, melody and the chord changes that aren’t the same ole same ole… Very nice.

By the way, it appears you have only been writing for a few years? Interesting and maybe inspiring for other people that for whatever reason may have a talent here but never tried to write before. You are a story in itself.

Thanks Robert for listening, and for the positive feedback.

I have been writing for many years, but decided to get serious about it about 10 years ago. I have yet to be blessed with a major cut, but will continue working towards that goal.

If I Had Listened

Written by Marvin Adcock

Sittin’ in the dark all alone
Readin’ over what she says is wrong
My heart explodes with every breath as I memorize the note she left behind

I know every word from before
Cause everything I’ve heard and just ignored
She said I need someone who’s not afraid to lean on me sometimes

If I had listened to what she tried to say
Opened up my heart before it was to late
I would have realized what she was missin’
If only I had listened

She said I prayed for change and you to hear
How every day’s the same, the weeks, the years
I miss that old desire that burns inside like fire when love is new

I think you’ll realize after I’m gone
This emptiness inside just can’t go on
I hope you find someday someone who makes you feel the way we used to

If I had listened to what she tried to say
Opened up my heart before it was to late
I would have realized what she was missin’

If I had listened with more than just my ears
I’d be holdin’ her instead of sittin’ here
I should have realized what I’d be missin’
If only I had listened
