Description
I wrote this song quite a while back. While working on the vocals for another song, decided to do a new demo of this song.

Seeing that I haven't been upping any songs here recently, decided to up it first. Hope you guys like it :)

Appreciate and love your comments.

Lyrics
Treated you as a friend so I let you in,
Yet you tried to change me never even stopped to understand me
You introduced weird ideas into my head,
tried to so-called cultivate me, more like brainwash me

I never understood why I listened to you,
perhaps it's cos I felt out of the crowd
Cos when I look into the mirror,
I couldn't recognize myself so much I begin to hate myself

Fashion, trends and desires,
And things I never knew, I don't want to know no more
Things I thought I knew, I no longer know no more
And ideas, and thoughts that I don't care

I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else (x2)

You wrote the rules the way you wanted it,
Expected me, to follow faithfully,
You introduced wild ideas into my head,
Said it was okay, to express myself

I never understood why I heeded your advice,
now I feel my mind is in fright,
Cos when I look into the mirror
I couldn't recognize myself so much I begin to hate myself

Fashion, trends and desires,
And things I never knew, I don't want to know no more
Things I thought I knew, I no longer know no more
And ideas, and thoughts that I don't care

I just wanna be myself, I don't want to be that someone else
(whom you feel close to deep down inside)
(when I dun even recognise myself)

Needs some acoustic boost
Nice song. Your guitar recording needs a bit of a tweak as it sounds a bit muddy on my speakers. Can you boost the gain on the acoustic or re-record closer to the mic?
Your voice is clear and nice to listen to.
Overall, a good song but with some adjustment could be very good.
Keep it up!

This is a very good song
This is basically a scratch track - vocals guitar on a single track. The song is very good and you played and sang it well. I'd go back and record a vocal only track and then a guitar only track, mue the scratch track and see how it sounds.
