Hi everyone
This is the first time I have posted a song on this forum, any views on this song would be greatly appreciated, thanks


Thereís a hole in my heart where your name used to be
Since, you left me Angeline, I should have been wild and fancy free.
I should have had a different girl 24/7 days a week,
And, I should have been starting a brand new fashion trend

I should have been dancing every night
I should have been seen all over town
Maybe once a week I would have stayed in to catch a game

But, Iím a worn out cowboy
My uses it seems have been outweighed
These old blue wrangler jeans are all torn
And my stetson been on its stand for weeks.

Hey Angeline since you left me
I ainít been out for weeks.
My friends are sick of hearing
How much I miss your company.

Even my dog leaves the room when
A sad song comes on the radio
He knows whatís a cominí and its
Too much for him to bare.


Canít you give my dog and friends a break, Canít you come back to me?
Iíll buy a new pair of jeans and Iíll wear my stetson Just for you.
Please Angeline put some life back into me and
Save me from being close to insanity.

Nice imagery. :) I like the idea of it. Just one person's opinion, I'd say that the lines may use a bit of focus.

"I should have been dancing every night
I should have been seen all over town
Maybe once a week I would have stayed in to catch a game"

Could be...

"I should be dancing every night
I should be all over town
Catch a game whenever I want
now that you're not around"

(Just off the top of my head, don't put any merit to it. The change of tense is because you are describing what the person is or should be doing now that he's single.)

I can see the character remorsing his loss, but it might go down more easily if it rhymed. I don't want to sound like that's my only view for everything, cuz I know I've said it before... I just think if the masses of listening public were to hear this, they might bend a more sympathetic ear to lines that rhyme. I think that's one of the "unwritten rules" of a certain business. ;)

Keep writing,
