Lyrics
telephone
you just hung up now i'm here alone
and the leaves outside are softly falling down
but there's gonna be a whirlwind

wondering
how'm i gonna do the right thing
but if i have to keep on guessing what you think,
then I'll never have a moment's peace

don't wait so long
just tell me, I'm alright if somethings wrong
i'm always knocking wood cuz i can't believe that we're still here

so unkind
feels like i'm wrapped too tight and can't unwind
i'd get out but i'm locked inside my mind
it isn't very peaceful

don't wait so long
just tell me, I'm alright if somethings wrong
i'm always making bets with myself on when i'll disappear

hey let me see what's on your radar screen
i want to find out what's controlling me

don't wait so long
just tell me, I'm alright if somethings wrong
it's almost time to move along so here's a souvenir

don't wait so long
(don't take this the wrong way)
ba ba da, ba ba ba da ba da

Lovin...
.. the overall arrangement. Has a Matthew Sweet vibe going on. Vocals in the chorus are particlarly nice.

Matthew Sweet is one of my favourite musicians, I guess it shows!

60s pop
has a real 60s vibe to it and I agree with the Matthew Sweet comment. I like your chorus, the bridge and how the dark lyrics contrast with the poppy music. great post man.

retro
Glad you liked. the retro stylings seem to come unbidden so I'm probably stuck with that for the time being! jangly guitar pop is what I love more than anything else.

Hey Feter
Thanks for listening Feter!
I will try fiddling with the levels to see if drum sound can be improved.

Nice feel
Kind of a Elvis Costello vibe on this, but on the poppy side of the spectrum.

Really nice piece of songwriting!

Great stuff.

elvis costello
elvis c. is definitely one of my formative influences.
In fact I was making my way through his "First Ten Years" podcast series (available on itunes for free) as I was making this one!
I'm one of your fans so I appreciate the listen and comment.

ba ba da, ba ba ba da ba da!!
Great song. Full of well produced sounds. Your guitars sound really good and the kiddie piano sounds good with the whole mix.

The ba ba da, ba ba ba da ba das are a great ending. I'm sure tempie will love that he inspired you on such a cool song.

the seven-armed man
thanks for your kind comments.
This is my favourite of the songs I've done so far.
the toy piano sound is "glockenspiel" on garageband - I think it might have come with one of the Jam Packs.

i like so many things about this...
the arrangement is killer - intro is two seconds of Def Leppard and then the tune just blooms into this great jangly pop thing. also like the break between the chorus and the verse. I hear Matthew Sweet but also Dinosaur Jr or Portastatic. the glockenspiel is all that. appreciate the nod with the ba ba ba's - can't go wrong with those! - but also really like the high vocal backups just behind the lead - you have the right voice for this kind of tune. Thanks for the DL!

and...
forgot to mention the lyrics are really solid too - especially like the "i'm always knocking on wood because i can't believe we're still here" line.

thnx
appreciate vote of confidence on the wordsmithing, since I absolutely hate my lyrics.
So much so that I was thinking of asking my kids to write lyrics for me from now on... I still may do that!
Glad you liked the tune. I'm a big dino jr fan so I appreciate the comment.
