Song for Charlie
Posted by: saintmick ()
Date: January 10, 2023 02:26

When Charlie passed away I wrote a song on the emotions that I was feeling. I realized The Stones are part of my life for decades ever since I was eight years old. The death of Charlie felt like a part of me died too. The words and melody just came to me in those first moments. The song is called “Tears For Missing You”.

I want to share this song with other Stones fans and I’m curious about your thoughts on it.

You can listen to it on Spotify:

Also on YouTube:

I hope you enjoy it ;-)

Marco





(My debut album “Talking To The Wind” has been released on all the major streaming platforms a few days ago.)

Beautiful and touching song, you can feel the emptiness and pain with every word you sing, Charlie enjoy your beautiful song up there in Heaven with a nice grateful smile and a tear.

Well done Marco. I enjoyed that a lot. Brings it all back. I’m 55 and as far as I recall, Charlie is the only musician to date whose death has brought me to tears. I’ve attended 4 Stones shows since we lost him and for me the enjoyment just isn’t the same without him. I agree it would be nice if the remaining Stones covered it.

Some people asked me for the lyrics. Here they are. The Stones references are obvious ;-)


Verse

You were there while I was growing up
You’ve been around with every step I took
You gave me shelter and a drink from your loving cup
And you painted pictures in my book


Pre chorus

Now you’ve left me but I cannot do without you
My tears are flowing, they’re all about you
A new one’s coming and I wish it was gone
Like water that splashes on a stone


Chorus

There’s a tear for every moment, a tear for every year
A tear for every song you sing and the heartbeat that I hear
This tear means love for all, ‘n all we ever do
A tear for missing you

Verse

All the rain I walked through, I could always wear your coat
All the doors I knocked on had a message that you wrote
In every place I slept you handed me my pillow
You gave me comfort when I needed it most

Pre chorus + Chorus

Bridge

All I’m really scared of now is, will you fade into memory?
All I really care about is, will you still be there waiting for me?

Chorus

That's a great song - really touching.
A while back I also posted a song for Charlie from an album I put out last year but no one listened to it - ha! Anyway, I think You guys will enjoy. If You go to the bandcamp address below, that should be the song You get to hear - it's called Charlie's Good Tonight. Enjoy.

Marco, your song made me cry..it is sincere, heartfelt and it actually sounds like it could be a Stones song. I hope the band gets to hear it. I'm sure they'll appreciate it as much as I do.

I also wrote a song for Charlie and recorded it. How can I post it here?
It's called "Gentleman in the background".
Kind regards,

Hi, that is the problem. The song is not on Spotify or Youtube. I dont know how to
manage this because Youtube says I only can use a video and not audio only.
I can send it with e-mail if anybody wants it.

A third song for Charlie, wow.

If we go on like this we can change the topic to “Album for Charlie”.

Wouldn’t that be great!
