I Could Do No Wrong

I sit in the dark dreaming of the time and what I had
Years ago I was a valuable man. A man in need
I was happy to be able to do some of the little things
Things that meant something to someone who loved me

Chorus
I had everything a man could need.
The life you’d really wana to keep
Hearts waiting for my return.
Eyes that hung on every word
Imagine that… An imperfect man that could do no wrong
In the eyes of a sweet thing Ohhhh I could do no wrong
Laughs that go right along
Even when the punchline’s wrong
A hand for me to put mine in
To make them feel safe again
Imagine that… An imperfect man that could do no wrong
In the eyes of a sweet thing ohhh I could do no wrong
Back then baby…. I could do no wrong
Imagine that… An imperfect man that could do no wrong
In the eyes of a sweet thing ohhh I could do no wrong
But I got to tell those days are long long gone
Gone gone

Now without the light I use to have, I have to wonder
Is that everything that I am meant to have in this life
Could it be that I had used up all of the good days back then
And going forward I just have these memories of a time

Sometimes life is a thief that does not give a thought
Taking away our dreams and leaving us an empty heart
I don’t mean to sound bitter, if it came out that way
I just long for the days when I was there to do my part

  1. You rarely do blues. It works.

    The “gone gone gone” spoken bit in the middle is priceless. Perfect balance between making fun of the whole concept, and just being really totally bummed about how lousy it all is.

    1. Is the singer sad about what’s happened, or angry, or just tired of dealing with it? You can slant how people perceive the song by what it’s called.

    1. I like that. It’s a little generic. What would make it feel more disappointed? I like how you repeat “long, long, gone” and “gone, gone” in the song. Thoughts?

  2. I was playing around with pitch correction on the vocals. (I never realized how far off i was until i saw it mapped out) Lend me your ears….did i tweak it too much?

  3. The correction is obvious after while, but is it too much? Only way to eliminate it is to hit all the notes, right?

    Short version: corrected version feels more like what you meant it to be. And maybe easier for Clay to learn from.

    7 minutes is, perhaps, a bit long for a blues song.
