I Will Never Know

Description
I had a few hours to myself today and went through some of my files and found this one that I did earlier this year. I tried to play around as much as I could to get it to sound right.

Some rudimentary piano for ya too. I don't really know what to think of this one, but I guess it's worthy of posting. Might as well since I put some hours into it.

Hope you enjoy

Dave

Lyrics
I Will Never Know

I’ve been looking for the answers
To the questions I seek

Think I’m missing the reason
To the whole world I see

I will never know the secret
3x’s
I seek

How can a word be so painful
Burning in my eyes

And the truth so shameful
Cutting like a knife
My entire life

I will never know the secret
3x’s
I seek

How can a word be so painful
Burning in my eyes

And the truth so shameful
Cutting like a knife
My entire life

Never know what is hiding
Or revealing to me

Finding more than I asked for
Read my senses, you’ll see

Its a great
song Dave! I don't know what you were concerned about. I can hear that the piano seems sort of off beat in places... but that may be intentional and it sounds pretty cool doing that. Almost echoy..

I like it!

Cool song
I especially liked the drums in general - nice fills and accents. The backwards sounds towards the end provided a nice contrast

i will never know
oooh I like this one a lot! great layered vocals and nice piano work! oooohh! love the backwards stuff and fall-out vocals at the end. i'd say keep this and fix up that ending a little and you've got a hit! great job dave!

nice piano work!
Wow, coming from you that's an honor. But, come on. I'm self taught and I use the thing for texture only. And it helps me write instead of just on guitar. It opens some different doors.

You didn't like the ending? That was my favorite part.

Thanks for you support Shay. Appreciate it

I liked it
I like this song. I think some pink floyd like effects with keyboard instead of piano and a more pink floydish distorted guitar line would compliment this song nicely. Maybe change the midi piano to a cool sounding swirly synth and adding some gain to the guitar line. Might be interesting. That is what I heard in the song anyways. Nice Work!

Those are some great ideas. If I have some writer's block in the future, I might come back to this and play around a bit more.

Thanks friend

piano, piano, piano
i like the piano. I'd be curious to hear what this would sound like with JUST piano. i think it would have more punch. i also think that break at the end (which i really like) would be more powerful. good stuff. i like how it seems to me that you're experimenting from song to song, pushing in different directions. very cool.

Yeah, I like to play around on piano. Gives you some different options. I wasn't too happy with this one, but I'm glad you got something out of it.

Piano.
cool chord progression and solid melody. The piano is a great addition. Though at times I'm not sure about the eighth notes where other times it sounds perfect place (sounds great in the "cutting like a knife" part). Heavy lyrics, per usual.

I always
enjoy your introspection on your lyrics. The ascending unison in the second chorus reminded me of cool 60's pop (Grass Roots, etc.).

Glad you enjoyed this one.

sschedra said 2993 days ago (August 12th, 2009)
Dave
The essential thing is your style, which is all yours. It always has a kind of 60's vibe running through it, yet your songs have unique and just that much unexpected chord changes (not your usual 1-4-5 thing, etc). This one is kind of like finding those lost tracks by the Beatles. You recognize it even though you have never heard it before. I think you should do more with the piano. Its different than the guitar work that usually drives your songs and gives it a softer sound. Maybe some ballads??
Good work,
Stephen

really like the sparsity of this one dave. great singing too. Piano sounds so full. This is very well done as is but I'm with tempie - a piano/vocal only version would be really powerful.

Maybe something the Birds might have done. Never the less it's a good song David and definitely you should continue developing it. Love what you got so far, can't wait to hear where you take it from here.
