WHERE WAS I WHEN WE WENT WRONG
Words and Music By Billy Kay

I was there for our first wedding dance
I was there when we made our life's plans
When our hearts were on fire
Burning deep with desire
When pleasure meant just holding hands

Like a grape that grows on the vine
With care it becomes a fine wine
We planted love's seed
Gave it all that it need
Then watched as it blossomed in time

But now that you're gone
And I'm left here alone
To wander just where we went wrong

Baby where was I when we went wrong?
Did I live in denial?
Did I sleep in too long?
How can love be so fragile
When it starts out so strong?
Baby where was I when we went wrong?

I remember the first time I held you
And my heart has been faithful since then
How can love be so cruel
Play my heart for a fool
I never thought it would end

Baby where was I when we went wrong?
Did I live in denial?
Did I sleep in too long?
How can love be so fragile
When it starts out so strong?
Baby where was I when we went wrong?

The Moment of Conception
I was giving Jesse a bath and was singing a great song in my head. I was wondering what CD the song was on, and it occurred to me it wasn't on any CD - it was in my head!

I whisked Jesse out of the tub and wrapped him in a towel and immediately started recording the chorus - without any instruments or a click track - so that I wouldn't forget it by the time Jesse went to bed.

What YOU hear is what I heard in my head 5 minutes after I heard it! It's so cool to hear everything - the background vocals, the piano - everything!

This is also the first time Jesse ever recorded anything - LOL! I can't wait to throw THIS in his face :)

My plan is to have a special version of the finished song that includes Jesse's "vocals", the way it is in this video.



Piano Version the Day After I Wrote It
I originally wrote this on piano and recorded it on my 4-Track recorder. There's no guitars added yet - and I didn't add the bridge yet either. But this is a good example of what the song sounded like the day I wrote it.

I deleted the original 2nd verse, to be replaced with the bridge, but left in an extra measure by accident. So it sounds a bit odd right before I get to the chorus.



Piano and Acoustic Guitar
This version I added the acoustic guitar to the piano track to hear what it will sound like.

This version doesn't include the bridge - but the final version will.

There are 3 guitars on the final version: strumming, finger picking and lead guitars.



Just Acoustic Guitar
Before you record a song for posterity, you go thru the "what-if" phase.

I wanted to hear how the song would sound as a guitar song, but opted to keep it as a piano song.

On the piano version of the song, I modulate (change keys) on the last verse. I'll still do that when I record it, but I didn't do it here so as not to upset my neighbors with loud singing :)
