Lyrics
I keep my mouth shut cos I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be obscene
I keep my eyes shut cos I don’t wanna see
I don’t wanna see what you won’t see in me

Sheared, shucked, soaking in the mud
None you could shake from me
Tucked up, pulled tight, f***ed
The way it’s supposed to be

Oh, I’ll show you where it ends
All golden in the sunset, dried blood on the skin
Oh, I’ll show you where they end
The white boy speaks of rivers, quick as they begin

You can get back in the car,
Didn’t need to know just what you are
No I apologize it’s fine
But really, the fault is mine
Pull the curtains, cut the light
Last waking thought I think tonight
He’d’ve wished you well, he’d’ve wished you might
Have had this wish you wish tonight

Oh, I’ll show you where it ends
All golden in the sunset, dried blood on the skin
Oh, I’ll show you where they end
The white boy speaks of rivers, quick as they begin

Strong imagery in the lyric. Layered acoustics sound great, and add to the singer-songwriter vibe. Melody has some modern, radio friendly elements. Strong vocals.

Bold
Smooth, flowing lines of sound
voice and instrument intertwined
with the boldness of the words
cutting and soothing
Combining into such
a pleasing form

Brilliant track. I love it all---writing, vocals, lovely arrangement that builds, layering textures.
This is as good as it gets here, imho. I'm gonna pimp this in the forum. Deserves more listens!

Ahhh, this is so refreshing. This is such a well conceived song, great lyric, vocal, guitar and melody. The vocals get a bit buried in the latter choruses in my opinion, but it doesn't detract from the overall performance. Really nice to hear something like this...

This is great - really well done. The guitar is full and rich, and your vocals come in with just the right amount of hurt and pain in your delivery - very John Mayer-ish. As the song builds your vox start to get a little buried, but otherwise this is a beautiful song - very much enjoyed - thanks!

Shades
of Nick Drake (I hate the 'sounds like' game, but honestly that's who I thought of while listening).
That change at 3:24 caught me a little off guard, and I'm much improved for it. Beautiful vibe.

A Lot From a Little
Your simple groove grows large and lush, thanks to the instrumental and vocal build and eloquent, thanks to the poetic lyrics. Nicely done, A.P. ;)

Delicate
Even when the bands jumps in. Love the perfectly "messy" (don't find a better word now) drumming. Beautifully sung. Beautiful guitar tones. Deep bass.
Only thing (with my cheapo headphones) is that the voice gets a just a little bit buried during the climax.
Totally digging it

Loneliness beneath the star light star bright
Love the way the whole thing slowly drowns in a beautiful wash of sound, stars twinkling above, quiet at the center. Floating beyond the poetry, into a coda of shifting water and sound, fog and fades. Really nice.

Wonderful
As close to perfect as you can get. Really great songwriting and performance. Gives me some shadows of José González, but better, no whiny voice. Sophisticated and deep stuff. Downloaded!

I'm shocked no one has
likened you to hackneybloke (Julian) a macjammer who you have amazing similarity to, and that's a huge compliment because he's amazing imho.
It's so strange to read the comnments from familiar macjammers all so similar but out of character for most of them, as far as style and language, I wish I would have listened before reading the other comments, but all that being said, wow, dude, very nice! well worth a remix!
