about

I Need You More Than Ever

I had entitled this song, “We Can Do Better.” Ed really loved the song, but he recommended that I change the title. “No man wants to hear, we can do better, because he hears, you can do better, but how great is it to hear I need you more than ever? Then you have our attention and we can work on whatever we need to as a couple.” Ed did make a compelling argument, so I changed the title.
I really wanted the vocals be a duet with a man because the song is about a couple and how they negotiate that treacherous path we call marriage. Really only Father in Heaven is optimistic enough to think that men and women could actually live together without killing each other. I was searching for someone to sing it with me and one Sunday in church I heard this great tenor voice behind me and it sounded good with the alto part I was singing. I asked Shawn Anderson to sing the song with me and he agreed, but then his life got really crazy. He and his wife had a baby, and then they took a new job and were getting ready to move. We had one window of opportunity so I had Shawn over to the house to figure out the harmony part he would sing. I sang a sample harmony part along with the melody already recorded, but instead of singing it with me he sang a harmony with my harmony. Incredibly it worked out, although harmony is typically lower than the melody, it’s hard to sing lower than my tenor voice unless you sing bass. It turned out to be a very beautiful song and between Shawn’s tender vocals and Ed’s romantic solo, it turned out to be the make out song on the CD.

lyrics

I Need You More Than Ever

1) Feeling the silence of the night, you and I we had, we’ve had another fight

Chorus:
And I need you, I need you more than ever, and I know, I know, I know we can do better

2) Tell me where can we find, find our perfect bliss, ‘cause baby, baby, baby, this can’t be it

Chorus:
And I need you, I need you more than ever, and I know, I know, I know we can do better

Bridge: And I know your heart and you know mine, tell me why did we do this one more time?

3) We both know how good, how good it can be, how can we keep that around for you and me

Chorus:
And I need you, I need you more than ever, and I know, I know, I know we can do better

Julie Clark Shubert South Carolina

If you listened to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and every rocking song you could get your hands on from 1966 to now and stirred it up with a Fender Strat and sang it from a woman's perspective, you would have Julie Clark Shubert "From the Inside Out." When Julie turned 50, her husband gave her a Fender Strat, the stars aligned and her natural gift appeared, the rest is kinda a blur. ... more
