Kudos for having something different - zombies. Doesn’t sound like anything on country radio. That can be either a good thing or a bad thing. Not quite sure with this particular song. Good job, Frank.

Nice job, Frank!  I especially like the line, “I’m a stranger to myself without you!”  I also really like the meter of this song…

Thank you for listening and your encouraging comments. Actually the song was on hold and has raised some interest from publishers, but so far no one’s really bitten (as always). After all the lyric got a ‘Honorable Mention’ in American Songwriter’s lyric contest. I think it’s not necessarily a Country song. Depending on the singer/voice and production it may also work as a Pop song or in the Contemporary Adult genre, so I have tried to keep the demo somewhat neutral.

Frank, I like it. Idea is really cool and has a Country/Alternative vibe going on and the production is great. If I were a Publisher I’d say I can picture this song more as a TVShow/Movie Soundtrack than I do a Commercial radio song because it didn’t suck me into the story enough lyrically, yet the lyrics were really cool but hey Im no Pub so dont listen to me! lol Overall, as a listener, I myself really enjoyed the song and thought it was really original! Great job!

Thank you Stephen for listening. I stopped asking myself what a publisher might like to hear. Meanwhile, I think that’s a mystery. There are no rules, nothing you can rely on.

Wow, great lyrics, full of visual imagery! Great arrangement, vocals, and production values!

Great concept, “I’m a zombie without you!”

I love the soaring chorus with the background vocals!

Awesome song!

Cigarette smoke hangin' in the air
an empty whisky bottle tipped over on it's side
all the blinds pulled down
A moldy pizza in a box
old grunge jeans and dirty boots and a blotted Hard Rock shirt
scattered on the ground
Just another night here on the couch, but that's ok
this house has way to many rooms
when you're not around

Without you
I'm a stranger to myself
Without you
I’ve been under a bad spell
I'm a soulless husk with a smell of booze
I’m walking dead, it's the bitter truth
Baby I'm a zombie without you

Baby I know I did you wrong
there's no undo button and I can't turn back the clock
but I swear that I will try
your name is in my DNA, and if you leave
you'll make a monster out of me
please don't say goodbye

Without you
I'm a stranger to myself
Without you
I've been under a bad spell
I'm a soulless husk with a smell of booze
I’m walking dead, it's the bitter truth
Baby I'm a zombie without you

I know I should have told you that before
I took too much for granted till you turned around
and slammed that door

Without you
I'm a stranger to myself
Without you
I've been under a bad spell
I'm a soulless husk with a smell of booze
I’m walking dead, it's the bitter truth
Baby I'm a zombie without you
and only you can save me from the blue
