The wonderful @anja1960 posted this track as a lyrics-only collab-needed and I got there a little too late to be the main collaborate, but she was still cool enough to let me take a crack at it and post it!
I recommend going to her page to hear the other version and see the original form of the lyrics, which I modified a little bit. Mainly, I just wanted to shorten the song and leave the word "love" strictly for the chorus.
Her version is here: https://fawm.org/songs/119029/
I took on this task because the lyrics were of a style and subject that I typically would not and don't write about. And on a whim, after seeing her post, I played 2 chords on a guitar and immediately heard this in my head. So I was like...well...fuck, I guess i gotta record it now.
It all comes out of me a little cheesily, but I'm really happy with a lot of aspects of it, like the guitar tones, the bass, and the synth. My vocals are only ok!
you could be dead tomorrow
not knowing how I feel about you
and it would be all my fault
so I'm coming 'round tomorrow
to explain what you mean to me
it was such a close call
almost lost the chance to say
tomorrow never comes today
and I've no reason to delay
so I won't wait to tell you
that I love you
