Lyrics
The clock is ticking
And I'm still here waiting
And you're still not here
(Not here)

Kiss me for the last time
Because this has crossed the line
Strike me for the last time
I've stopped trying to hide

The rain is pouring
And I'm still here crying
These salty eyes suck me dry

Kiss me for the last time
Because this has crossed the line
Strike me for the last time
I've stopped trying to hide

Kiss me for the last time
(Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me...)
I won't give in to your lies anymore

Kiss me for the last time
Because this has crossed the line
Strike me for the last time
I've stopped trying to hide

And if you strike me, I wil run away
And if you lie to me, I wil run away

Kiss me for the last time
Because this has crossed the line
Strike me for the last time
I've stopped trying to hide

Kiss me for the last time
Kiss me for the last time
Kiss me for the last time

cool, this is a well-recorded track and it sounds like you had fun with the vocoder. I particularly liked the passing chord into the first chorus.
got a big shock at 1:52, I was getting into the chorus!

Nice first track...
Welcome to Macjams :-) You really extended this, sounds nice. I'm not a fan of vocoders through an entire song, but you get some interesting effects, some of your singing sounds like a harmonica, or a bagpipe in places, which is actually pretty cool. I think you have a pretty good voice, which the vocoder-effects tend to hide. Maybe your next song will show a different singing style, so we hear more of your REAL singing. Very nice work on the backing GB tracks, I thought the grind-to-a-halt thing in the middle was a cute addition.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Love your voice
Cool guitars in the instrumental background (that tremolo is just excellent for the song).
Very creative break. I wish I could come up with something like that in my songs.
I love when your natural voice shows up clear.
Enjoyed!

Looking forward
to hearing more of your stuff. With less vocoder though. This is excellent right across the board. Welcome to MJ
Peace

I remember this one
and it's just as powerful as the first time I heard it. The effects are cool, but I really like your natural voice- to my ears, it is more emotive without the effect throughout. I really like your voice and lyrics!

well this is just terrific! for me personally, the vocoder is a little overdone - i'd love to hear more of your natural voice. great post, welcome to MJ!

Thanks to
Drakonis for leading me here. Really enjoyed this very accomplished first post, but I must admit that I would have preferred less vocoder. Song, arrangement and production was first class.
Welcome to Macjams.
Cheers

You have a gorgeous voice
I think the vocoder would be a cool effect for accent but I would remove some in places as well to mix it up. Love your voice and this song is great. Nice work on this, keep it up!

All this works fine Addison, yet the vocoder is passe. Sorry but you got the chops to be a Siren. By that I mean you possess a voice impossible to resist. Use your voice!
I like the focus here. You could be successful in any genre you choose. I don't think you even need the wild trappings, just tell the truth and sing it straight.

Nice!
And through that vocoder I hear an awesome voice! Like others have mentioned- not a big fan of those digital FX :)

This is a great track & I'm looking forward to hearing more!

Well
This was fun to listen to! I liked how you added more vocals than the first one! Although, the "effect" is fun to use and worked well for "our song", I think your normal beautiful voice is right for the song rather than using all the effects. Can't wait to hear more!

PS
You should upload the original too so people can hear [and easily find] the other version!

Nice one!
This all works very well as is, a cool twist with the interaction of the vocoder on vox and the lyric.

Cool tune.

Thank you so much!
For all your wonderful comments! I will certainly go easer on the vocoder from now on... o_O

I enjoyed this
Interesting use of the vocal work and effects. I personally found that some of the vocal overlays seemed to be not in the same plane as the rest of the vocals... Other than that... This is very cool.

remix
sadly I missed the 1st one. This rocks. Well written alt pop tune. So hard to do, imho. You strike such a accessible balance between the pop and alternative :-) even harder. Count me as one who'd love hearing your natural voice.
