Without You is a song where I nailed the music right off the bat, and then the lyrics went through many iterations over a long period of time to get the way they are on this recording.  I don't rewrite very often, but this melody was worthy of it.  It's one of those that just came to me as if by accident and I knew right away it was good music, but the lyrics began as too depressing in a shorter form and then it evolved from there.  It started out being called Lonely Again Without You, but then I changed it to a slow progression in multiple verses from lonely to getting by to being happy again, which made much more appealing and literally told a story from beginning to middle to end.  Along the way, the title had to be just Without You.
