Creative Brief

I've sung this song in a mellow style over a smooth R&B bedtrack featuring guitar and organ. I want to add a drummer, a sax, and vocals to replace my demonstration singing

 

Save Me With a Smile

E                                                         A

Darlin’ why do you give me that ‘ole evil eye?

A                                                                      E

I’m in a little trouble, but that shouldn’t mean goodbye

B7                                                                    A

You want to take your love away, but I can’t let you go

A                                                                     E

I’ve got a comeback in me baby, that you gotta know

 

Chorus:

B                                                                   A

There was a time when you used to smile my way

F#m                                                           G#m

It made me feel warm inside, just like the month of May

B7                                                  A

But now you’re givin’ me that ‘ole evil eye …..

G#m                              F#m

It saps me of my will, I’m not like some machine

F#m                                                     G#m

Your burning eyes give me a chill, your voice turns hard and mean

B7                                                      A

I want you to smile again, listen to my plea

A                                                                  E

Save me with a smile baby, fall back in love with me

E

Now listen to me dear

A

Right now I can’t be found

A                                              E

They’re calling in my debt, I gotta stay underground

B7

I’ll find a way to pay it back

A                                        

We’ll get straight, you’ll see

A                                            E

Once that happens baby, we’ll walk away free

 

Bridge:

F#m                     G#m

When the money was flowin’

G#m                         F#m

We had friends, we had it goin’

F#m                                            G#m

It was a full-time party, but we shoulda been knowin’

B7                                       A

All that money and time, we had to stop blowin’

F#m

Now you say it was my fault

B7

But weren’t you at my side?

A                                         E

Egging me on? Appealing to my pride?

 

Chorus:

 

B                                                                 A

There was a time when you used to smile my way

F#m                                                                G#m

It made me feel warm inside, just like the month of May

B7                                                    A

But now you’re givin’ me that ‘ole evil eye …..

G#m                              F#m

It saps me of my will, I’m not like some machine

F#m                                                     G#m

Your burning eyes give me a chill, your voice turns hard and mean

B7                                                    A

I want you to smile again, listen to my plea

A                                                                   E

Save me with a smile baby, fall back in love with me

 

E                                                   A

Now all our friends are gone, they’ve melted through the cracks

A                                                       E

They either moved uptown or they crashed on the tracks

B7                                       A

We’re the last ones left, teetering on the edge

A                                                E

What’ll come tomorrow, will we come off the ledge?

B7                                                              A

Will you nail me with an evil look, your mad explosive voice?

A                                                            E

Or will you save me with a smile -  baby it’s your choice

 

Chorus:

 

B                                                               A

There was a time when you used to smile my way

F#m                                                                G#m

It made me feel warm inside, just like the month of May

B7                                                    A

But now you’re givin’ me that ‘ole evil eye …..

G#m                              F#m

It saps me of my will, I’m not like some machine

F#m                                                     G#m

Your burning eyes give me a chill, your voice turns hard and mean

B7                                                    A

I want you to smile again, listen to my plea

A                                                                   E

Save me with a smile baby, fall back in love with me

 

< break guitar solo>

 

A                                                         E

Please save me with a smile baby ……, fall back in love with me …….
