Lyrics
My House
Words and Music by Demetrius P. Hill
©2004 Demetrius P. Hill, All rights reserved

All my life I’ve wanted you,
But we had never met,
Nothing I could do.
But since you let me stay the night,
The days without your voice
They just don’t seem right.

Sitting here alone,
Waiting by the phone for you to call and rescue me or set me free
Now you seek a change, my life’s rearranged and I’m feeling kinda used

Come on round to my house, say here with me
I will take you to a place your mind has never dreamed.
Stay with me forever, this time you’ll see
Givin’ your heart is not so hard when you give love to me.

Take your time and you will see,
I’m not what you sought
But maybe I’m what you need
Rush right in and you will find
The fault lies not with me
So don’t blame your fears on time

You say falling in love...
I’ll agree is not a logical thing to do for someone who thinks like you.
But if logic had something to do with falling in love then how’d I fall in this with you?

Come on round to my house, say here with me
I will take you to a place your mind has never dreamed.
Stay with me forever, this time you’ll see
Givin’ your heart is not so hard when you give love to me.

Hey girl don’t you try to fight it,
Why would you deny this?
Keepin' your love from me!

(chorus x2)

Hardware:
Originally recorded almost three years ago on a Roland 880EX Digital Studio. Recently dumped the individual tracks via analog RCA cable and FastTrack USB into an iBook G4 laptop where I cleaned up the tracks, rerecorded one of the acoustic guitars, added FX etc, then mixed down, all in GarageBand 1.0, and Voila!
Software:
GarageBand 1.0

Good song
Good lyrics, heart felt and honest. Mix is pretty good, maybe a bit heavy on the fx on the guitar. Drums and bass are excellent. All in all excellent stuff. If you felt like deleting this, well please don't because it's very good.

Agreed
I agree don't delete this it is good. Yeah the mix sounds great. Personally I think theres just a little too much compression on everything, especially the drums. I really like the wierd sound effect that leads into that big stop, good stuff!

like it!
solid track. Good writing and playing. The drums sound real. Are they played? nice...gives the song strong acents. Like your voice alot. You have great timing and soul. It all adds up nicely. Sort of sneaks up on you. I agree that effect you use for a break is very cool.

Yes...
...that's me playing my drum kit. I would have put a smokin' guitar solo there near the end where all the drum gymnastics are, but I can't play a smokin' guitar solo. So I decided fill that space with a bit more texture by puting in the rolls, accents, crashes, splashes, etc. It works--but when I get a chance to record a real guitarist I'll probably slide him in there and see what that sounds like. Thanks for your coments and compliments.

You were going to delete this?
Don't! This is a great song. I defer to other commenters regarding the mix since I don't know about this stuff, but I really enjoyed the tune and especially your vocal and guitar performances.

Nice one
The guitar effects seem too much sometimes... I don't know, they are also kind of growing on me. This is a good solid production, my only suggestions would be to boost the bass and drums and lower the vox a bit. But it's all a matter of taste. This is tight, good job!

Really love this one also!
This one is going on the iPod. : ) Enjoyed the music, and your vocals are great! Glad I got curious about Aphrodisiac in the who's online list and checked it out, which led me here.
