Sorry

Description
First post of 2009 and my new year's resolution song. I need to try to say 'sorry' more this year...

The acoustic and verse vocals were originally supposed to be just a scratch track for demo purposes, and although imperfect there's an honesty I like about them so I left em in.

SORRY if this is too loud for some of you ;)

Lyrics
I'm sorry I didn't say
"I'm sorry" to you again
I'm sorry that I'm this way
I am sorry I'm a pain

Why are you running away?
Is it me you cannot face?
I can tell you're not okay
So I am sorry, I'll obey

You get off on making me submit
But I am the only one
That'll put up with all this

Look who's finally here again
I couldn't wait til you got in
I've got something to confess
I am sorry for this mess

You're not the only one
To dig into this hole
But you won't be the first
Ghost to haunt this empty soul

Sorry...

I'm sorry
that I can't write and record like Ridd. This track seems like it has less fuss than some of your '08 offerings. It's still a solid assault, but it's got a simplicity that works extremely well for this song. You're off on the right track!

It does have a little less fuss you're right - I hadn't noticed that. Sometimes I do get carried away with adding stuff though when I should pull back. thanks for listening glad u like it

nirvana
thanks man. definitely trying to channel Kurt et al. I was going to do this as a second chance lost demo challenge a while back (which is why I initially try to sing like Kurt) but when I revisited it it became something else with the piano break and guitar solo at the end..

yo
one of my favorite albums of all time, was nirvana nevermind. As soon as the voice hit ontop of those chords kurt cobain was the first thing that came to mind...very nirvana-esque... freakin cool track man..makes me want to record more alternative/rock style music...cool stuff

Piano
I like the piano part. Makes me wonder if Nirvana and Pixies would have added some piano at times, how cool that would have been. Maybe I'm just ignorant but I don't remember either of those bands using piano (I know the Pixies much better than Nirvana's work...pbly the opposite of most). Realy well done overall.

piano
I don't think Nirvana ever did but for some reason I'm hearing a Pixies song in my head with one, though I couldn't tell you which one. Great bands! thanks for listening

First of the year
Glad this was my first of this year. Saw Holman's comments- agree.

You did such a great job with the vocal recording.

Love when it explodes. Maybe a touch too hot.

Great New Year.

'scuse me -
could you turn it up a little please - I can still hear myself think. What I'm thinking is that this is a pretty awesome tune that needs to be heard live - for the real sonic blast that moves the mosh pit back a few feet. Great start to the new year.

yah this would be so fun to play live! though it would be hard to get the quiter beginning across in a live setting if we wanted the dynamic shift to really work.. anyway thanks for checking it out kevin.

lalal
this is a great song, songwriting, guitar, singing, production...but you should remove the flanger or chorus from the vocals this is not my style. i think your vocals would sound great too without it!!
cheers, luke

vox
THanks luke. I debated taking it off and decided to leave it just to give the vocals a different kind of sound then I usually have. That said, I may revisit this at some point and try them again without. Thanks for the feedback.
