Deep Dark Secrets


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
It's a depressing sort of song about someone who hides things from the people they care about...

I don't have a mic so I can't add the singing with it, but you'll get an idea.

Lyrics
Verse 1)
Days drift slowly into darkness, guilt is the feeling I harness.
I keep it buried down deep, sometimes it's hard to keep it in.
It's hard to look at your face when I go out to your place.
I can't find the words to tell you how I feel...

Chorus:
My days are nights, my nights are days.
I hide from you and all your ways
I feel empty, shattered and cold, worn out,
should I let you know that I keep all these Deep Dark Secrets?

Verse 2)
I was once happy with you, that's lost and hard to undo,
the past is dead and buried, tears are all that we've carried
the word love has no meaning so now I am retreating
I can't find the words to tell you how I feel...

Chorus:
My days are nights, my nights are days.
I hide from you and all your ways
I feel empty, shattered and cold, worn out,
should I let you know that I keep all these Deep Dark Secrets?

Great start
Quite emotional and haunting. The lyrics look like they're going to be
good. Too bad you don't have a mic. :(

The only gripe I have is that the reverb (I'm assuming it's Matrix Reverb?)
muffles the piano somewhat...

Great start
Thanks. Yes it was the Matrix Reverb...is there a way to fix that, to me the
Matrix Reverb makes the piano sound more real, but sometimes there is a
cracking sound from using it....

Great start
I agree with you there, it does sound more real than the normal GB settings! I
find that having two identical tracks (one with the reverb and one without) can
get the reverbed sound without being muffled or out of place.
I've had the crackling too ... hm ... not sure why that happens.

Good Stuff
Like CJ said, emotional and haunting. This is just preference, but you may
want to switch it up to a less scratchy / edgy guitar to fit the "feel" more. I
really like this though. The strings are nice.

Melancholy Piano
The strings really add nice depth to the composition. Unlike one of the other posts above, I actually really like the contrast between the clean acoustic sounds of the piano and strings, and the fuzz on the guitar, so much in fact, that I wish the guitar played a more prominent role.

The only thing that could use a little work is the mix (it's so hard to get this right) - as mentioned above, the piano got the top end cut off somehow (sounds muffled) and the dynamic between the clean acoustic instruments and the fuzzed up guitar could be played up a bit, too.

After that, lay in some vocals and it's time to go to the beach on a rainy day and shoot the video! ;)

Nice work.

Enchanting
This is so emotional, deep and dark. It's brilliant. I love this kind of
stuff. The lyrics are powerful and the music captures them perfectly. It
is a touch of sadness with a slight sense of hope. I really loved it. I
want to hear those lyrics now!!

Great mood
Great mood to this piece. It has a nice build up at the beginning, and I like
the way the drums come in. I also like the guitar sound, although I think it
could be more forward in the mix. I also think the drums sound a bit
weak, but that's just a matter of taste. Love the melody, and let me add
my voice to all those clamoring to hear the lyrics sung! Good job.
