Description
Note: Play this one through to the end! It's a little slow, but it really rocks out in the last 2 minutes or so! I know you want to!
I can't help it. It isn't done, but I just HAVE to post it. This is another rough draft. Recorded this two years ago originally. It was my first project with Boy Wonder, as I like to refer to him...otherwise known as Residence. He's a 22 year old kid living in the UK who can bust this stuff out in, like, ten minutes. I swear. I wrote the lyrics, performed the vocals and mixed this particular recording. I am still learning how to utilize all the tools in Acid Pro 6.0, and I will post James's mix when he gets around to mixing it, but in the meantime, I can't help myself. Gotta post this. Hope you like.

Lyrics
You're such a martyr
Don't tell me it goes with the territory
You hunt alone
Keep me safe, tell me a story
Cause I can't sleep, and I can't eat
And I don't know anything about these streets
So give me a reason
Oh, you give me a reason

Don't know how to be a me
Without a you, your indiscretion
Don't know how to signal you,
Beware of any good intentions
I am serene behind a screen
Of thinly stretching disbelief
Collect my jaw beside my feet
The pain still lodged between my teeth

You could be a hero
I could be just wasting time
Don't change your mind
Stay and fight
You could be a hero
Defend the night
Don't change your mind
Stay and fight

You put a face on this fear
You put a face on this fear
You put a face on this fear
You put a face on this fear
Don't change your mind
Don't change your mind
Stay and fight
Stay and fight
Don't know how to be a me
Without a you, your indiscretion
Don't know how to signal you
Beware of any good intentions

Love the passionate vocal and sweet harmonies. Nice atmospheric backing track. I love the electric piano sound. Nice chord changes. The mix and production are pro all the way.

The
harmonies are, once again brilliant and really make the song. The spacious atmosphere in the instrumental track works with it really well, really lets the song as a whole breathe. Great work here.

Yes, I hear the potential here, great music bed, and great work stretching a melody across this, nice singing, good placement of harmony-vox... with a little tweak here and there to clear up the mix a bit, this will be killer.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Lovely
Welcome to MJ!

What a pretty voice you have, it dances around the notes beautifully. I like the track as well, and the lyrics are great. Maybe the vocals can come up a tad. Nevertheless, lovely tune!

need lyrics now!
i said it before and i'll say i now...i'm in love with your voice.. the right amount of strength and restraint... and as we come to that last 2 minutes the layering makes it so so so good... your riffing off yourself and when it drops to just the piano and your vocal at the end it's just perfect.. i'll be looking for that finished track
