Put A Little Heart On Me
*

This song is not in a battle


Been away for a long time... wanted to share again..
It is a one taker.. very rough around the edges, lots of false notes
Do not have the energy to make it better
Miss you guys. thanks

Iíve been thinking a lot
about you my friend
The days are getting cold
and I got a lot of time on my hands

Winter seems to put a chill
in my old memories
I thought youíd be in heaven by now
but you donít seem at ease

I take a little walk outside
And I light up a cigarette
Not a thing to do out there
But it beats staying in my bed

Reflections in the windowpanes
Remember your face
There always seems to be some truth
In the stories they create

What should I tell you about my life
My life is nothing at all

Put a little heart on me
When you see me breaking down
Put a little heart on me
When Iím not gonna get around
Put a little heart on me
When I cry out to the stars
Put a little heart on me

Iíve been dreaming a lot
about you my love
Retelling the good old times
that Iíve been so proud of

I donít believe in faith and all
but I guess Iím meant to be alone
Who am I gonna share it all with
My pain is my own

What should I tell you about my life
My life is nothing at all

Put a little heart on me
When you see me breaking down
Put a little heart on me
When Iím not gonna get around
Put a little heart on me
When I cry out to the stars
Put a little heart on me

Great recording. Iím a sucker for a piano ballad. The chorus is lovely as well. Put a little heart on me is an interesting turn of phrase and makes for a good hook. Love the instrumental break as well, good job.

I miss this site!

If it's a little heart on you that you need, you have it from me.  I love your true emotion in the vocal and Piano towards the end, the ad lib is excellent. Sounds great as it is, would not change thing.  Well done!

What a beautiful piece
I hear the 'wrong' notes but only at the end part
Being critical (of something I could not do my self!) the last vocal 'put a little heart on me's do go off a little and so many may not be necessary, the song it's self is complete as is.
I am not a piano player either but I found the main body a little repetitive, in that you could keep the main tune/theme but maybe 'play around' a little as you go through the song, just to spruce it up a little, give it some more 'life' and 'flow'
Just sharing what I hear and feel.
Again, a beautiful song, a bit of tweaking makes it a classic.

Thank you Kings,

I think you make very valid points. It was just a one take recording, not perfect at all! The piano can use some more variety in the way it's played, also, in the bridge, I think I can reduce the amount of sentences.

Thanks a lot again! Thanks for calling it a classic. Very flattered.
