Can You

Here is a very very simple little song I finished tonight. Really simple guitar part, just a slow sappy love song:

Can You

Can you say you've loved and lost
Can you say you paid the cost
Can you say you took the risk
And still you never got your kiss

I can look back on my past
I can say I took that chance
I can tell you what I've missed
Cause still I never got my kiss

Can you say you took a chance
Can you say love had your dance
Can you say you gave your hand
And still I cannot be your man

I can say I saw your soul
I can say you made me whole
I can say I felt the bliss
And still I never got your kiss

Each word led me on to another word,
Each deed to another deed.

I like it. Although it would probably need some sort of chorus or something if you wanted to do anything with it.

What do you record with? It's crystal.

Thanks! I use a Shure SM58 mic running through a DBX 286a channel strip. All that to my computer where I use Cool Edit Pro 2 for recording and any post effects.

As for the guitar it's just clean through the board with reverb added after recording.

And yeah there actually is a chorus to that song, what I posted was sort of a test run till I get the chorus parts worked out... I just wanted to know if I was on the right track. Thats the first song where I actually do backing harmonies.

Thanks for the comments!
