On the newsgroup, we have a "Songwriting Challenge" every now and then. We agree on a title, and then everyone writes a song with that as a title. In this case, the title was "Always Never There". My take on the song was from the point of view of a woman who lost her young love in WWI. The arrangement is minimal just to demonstrate the harmony.
