Leaving You - John Sercu

As I mentioned before I wrote this song for my girlfriend, who was 19 at the time..
Unfortunately we had a quarrel one evening. She left and 15 minutes later unfortunatly she took her own life.
Of course her motivations did certainly not only involve me, but it was a big disillusion for myself being just 16 years old and having my first girlfriend. The road to making my peace with it and accepting it was long, difficult and hard. But getting older I tried to convince myself that even if I wanted to, I could have done nothing to prevent her from doing sooner or later what she had planned.
I soon realized there was nothing I could do to bring her back to say I was sorry. So I did the only thing for her I was good at in those days. And that was playing the piano and writing her a second song. Unfortunatly she never lived long enough to hear it.

Hope you enjoy this (very sad) song.

Touching Amazing

I love this, it is amazing. The only i can say is more color, you have the picture just need to add color. What I mean is more musical type things, especially with the trumpet. Dynamics, and vibrato would be amazing. But over all wonderfull wonderfull work. I am sorry that happened for this to come out you, though

full 10/10

wow, very catchy..

so condolences to you, sir, but second like another review the song clearly had lyrics and it would have been stunning to hear them. without the words though it is a beautiful melody. oh 5/5 goes without saying

she hears this, im sure.

hard times happen in life... Ive experienced many but this song is absolutely beautiful. great piano and astounding trumpets.. so much love here.
