Lyrics
Can you hear me
Can you see me
Tonight
Can you feel me can you feel my pain
Tonight

I am lost
Help me find my way back home

I didn't know how to live
Never knew how much I really had to give
Never care'd about anyone
Now I find myself alone
Tonight

Can you hear me
Can you see me
Can you feel me tonight
Can you see I'm scared
I don't know where to run
Run and hide
Sister I need you
I need you by my side

I want to live my life
I don't want to run away and hide
Hold my hand help me off the
Help me make it through the night
Alive

Set me free
Please lord set me free
Let me go Let me go
I don't want to feel this pain no more

I want to live my life
I don't want to run away and hide
Hold my hand help me off the
Help me make it through the night
Tonight

Can you hear me
Can you see me
can you feel me
Tonight

So, no comments, yet three votes in the 4/5 range? Cowards. This
isn't great, but it is pretty good. It has flashes of great but then you do
things that come off odd to me. You've got a really sweet voice and it
goes perfectly with this tune, which tends to come off more country to
me than Indie Rock. The guitar is very nice. I don't think the talking
parts work very well, in the beginning and the end. Also, since I think
this has that country kind of feel, the synthesizer is out of place. That
line might come off better on an acoustic. The 'Running, Running'
vocals don't really work either. I couldn't understand, at first, what you
were singing and it just masked what was working. I think the main
bulk of this tune is really good, it's these little accent things you're
doing that seem to detract from it. Just my .02 .

I take it back about the talking parts, but I like the second one better. Okay, my
.03.

Thanks for the input. First Genre is a real hard thing for me to lable. Second
appreciate the input on background vocals. I am still confused on how to put
them in the mix.

good song
I like this one:) Good melody and well performed and I like your arrangements. Good bass playing from down under (as usual):) I think the backing vocals and the talking parts works just as they are now. This song really has some beautiful parts.

There is some guitar tones that sounds like a nylon string guitar. I think it would sound warmer and more 'real' and alive if you record it using an external microphone.

Good Song
Thanks for the kind words. I agree Neil's bass line was right on the mark. There
is no nylon string guiter and the guitar was miked. There are three guitar parts
and I still have to learn how to separated them in the mix. If anyone has a
suggestion it would be appreciated.

You know I like it Ed!
When I first heard this, I was really taken with the melody, chord
structure and your voice. I'm really pleased I had a chance to play on
this. Those bomb votes are really inappropriate - just ignore them, the
song and your performance are worth much more than that! I think
the mix you've done is good and that this stands up well - only nit is
that I'd probably be looking at "Acoustic Rock" as a genre rather than
"Indie Rock" - some of the Indie Rockers take their genre very seriously
(which may account for the bombs).
Fine song Ed - I enjoyed playing on it!

Thanks again for your help on this song and all the advice you provide to all
MJers.
It is a pleasure working with a true pro. As far as the bomb votes, what can I
do. This is just for fun and if people are willing to vote without input, well
enough said. I look forward to working with you again soon.

Ed

As far as genre, I am not good at labling but it is already been changed to
Acoustic Rock.(Don't want to offend anyone)

lovely
Hi Jig :-) I'm slowly but surely learning this site. Okay well...when I first
started up this song, I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Nice speaking
voice, but it didn't GRAB me. As the song progressed, I have to say I fell
in love. I love the lyrics..and the backing vocals were superb. It had this
"take me as I am quality" that not a lot of songs possess these days.

I don't think I will ever be able to criticize production. I have friends of
mine fix my songs up b/c I'm really good at breaking computers.

Look fwd to hearing more!

Interesting stuff. I really like the beat, melody. Your voice is honest
and expressive. I think it comes across really well. Especially in the
chorus-good tones for you. Great job! Thanks for sharing your work,
Ed! --your fan, kelli

Great voice!
I really like the sound you achieve with the guitars and vocals; sounds Indie Rock to me (like something you'd hear on the soundtrak of of a TV show like ER or something). Love the bass, Neil. I don't mind the speaking at the beginning, I would have stayed with the singing vocal at the end though; maybe some call and respond harmony lines right at the end. This was a great listen. Thanx.
