Description
I made some improvements since it's earlier version which I hope make this song a much more enjoyable listen now. I took into account many of the suggestions and I want to thank everyone for their help. I'm sure this song is still far from perfect but for the most part I am satisfied with this and I hope it has improved greatly. I want to thank Leon for lending his amazing voice and it was a honor to have worked with him once again.

Lyrics
Music and Lyrics: Brandon
Vocals: Leon

[Verse 1]
Out of all the crowded city streets,
in a vast sea of faces
I saw you oh so clearly

Stopping time in a city so frantic,
You are once in a lifetime
Attention to each detail

[Chorus]
You are my moonlight
The stars that shine bright
The shine that breaks night
My love at first sight
You are my skyline
The waves and the tides
The catch and the find
And one of a kind
I wanna hold you until the end of time

[Verse 2]
Truth be told I’ve never felt this way,
I never felt this before
Until I saw your face

I wish I could hold you every night,
and hold you so every time
And gaze into your eyes

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Slowly things begin to fall in place
a piece that takes on a shape
It all becomes complete

All by chance you walked into my life
It hurts right here without you
Longing for your touch

[Chorus X2]

Not perfect
but damn ... damn close to it. The mix is really good with lots of air
around all the instruments and the voices. The production hooks are in
all the right places and in the right amount. I especially like the end of
the first chorus ... nice touch with the break there. I like the almost A
Cappella treatment of the 3rd chorus. Great voice on this and nice
interplay of the vocal tracks.
What would make it perfect? (and it doesn't really need these things
they are just my personal suggestions)...Anchor the background voice
instead of letting it wander across the soundstage...Perhaps an 8 bar
piano solo as a bridge before verse 3 ... maybe a tasteful counter
melody from a guitar or the piano in the third verse.
Having said all that I still want to point out that I think this is a really
wonderful song. Thanks for posting it.

Ahhhh....
Much better! The piano is brought up a little and not so muffled it seems.
It feels like vox, drums, guitars, piano are better balanced, even in the
busy chorus. Sounds like the bass is boosted a bit too, sounds good.
There are a couple of places (e.g., near the end of the last chorus) where
Leon's S's get a little loud and noticeably hissy in the mix, but that is
about the only thing I could hear wrong with it... thanks for slowing the
ending piano down, that sounds great! Wonderful work, you two!
ttfn,

great atmosphere
Yo, what I really like about this is the atmosphere and the sentimental
feeling. The piano is warm and a strong support through the song. Singer
is really good and one appreciates the work that has gone into the
arrangement....

Great
I didn't hear the other version, but I really like this. It has a great,
catchy hook, superb vocals, and good lyrics. Nice production on this,
too. Those vocals really sell it!

Perfect enough
Wow. Just wow. I have listened to this over and over, and have had it stuck
in my head all day. Amazing. I will try to post something more detailed
later. :) I really like the almost acapella part near the end.

There are some incredible elements in this song
and he has tremendous curb appeal. The music is really inspiring, the
piano melody reminds me of both Dennis De Young and Radiohead's
"Spinning Plates." I don't know if you're looking for suggestions, but I
hear a few things that I think would bring it even higher are: give us a
simpler chorus the first time around, and for each chorus add the
elements until the full one at the end. That would help me, and I
suspect some other listeners wrap their heads around the very detailed
and well-placed vocals in the full chorus. Leon's voice is just beyond
and how you fit that many vocal elements clearly in the chorus is
beyond too. Just awesome. Also, the drums in the pre-chorus stand
out, meaning I noticed them to much. When they went into the chorus,
my concerns about them disappeared, but then they came back, I
thought they took the song down a notch. I wonder if something could
be done to bring them to a better sonic place? But all in all, this was
great to listen to.

Searching!
Excellent pop song guys! Beautiful mix of vocals there. The a capella
part towards the end could maybe have sounded better without the
drums, but I'm really searching for nits here. This is as good as any
pop I've heard on the radio lately.

Loved it.
Brandon, this is definitely an improvement of the original instrumental arrangement. The acapella (or near-acapella) segment was dramatic and I didn't think of that previously. Sorry for the drums that got mixed accidentally in the vocals :-) I agree with those who said it could have been better without those drums. The ending was also better with the decelarating piano. I approve of the suggestion that the choral vocals could have been simpler initially, and more elaborate at the next and grandest at the last. Hmm, I never thought of that but great suggestion indeed. Lots of credit to you, Brandon. The singer is only as good as the material he sings.

Great pop-style piece.
Very, very nice to listen to. I read the comments, and would agree that the idea for building the chorus from one voice to many would be great, but everything else is really superb. This really could stand up to radio play, easily!
