Lose Me

Description
When I got to college, one of the first guys to show interest in me was a huge disappointment. We met in the dining center and flirted lots. When the end of the week came around and I thought he was going to ask me out, he instead asked for "friends with benefits" because he was too busy for a girlfriend. To be quite honest, this disappointed and upset me. The fact that he asked was insulting, and it made me mad because I didn't think I came off that way. Hell, I know I didn't look like that kinda girl, seeing as it was midterms week and looked like a total mess (greasy hair pulled back, minimal makeup, lazy shirts with jeans, etc). So I started a song back November about it but got too busy with school to finish. Recently I came back and took it on a new route and finished it up. Now I'm uploading it to share with you guys. Enjoy!

Lyrics
What kinda girl did you take me for
The kind that wouldn't ask for more
You waited 'round for an answer
I should've known from the start

Get the hell outta here
I don't wanna hear
Your excuses
Cos your expectations
Lack the relations
I desire

If you're know lookin' to pay the price
Just so you can cut it cheap
Then tell me why I should play it nice
Cos if you're not workin' to keep
Then you're just gonna lose me

I didn't think could give that vibe
So you must have been so damn high
To think you asked is insulting
And by far not exulting

Get the hell outta here
I don't wanna hear
Your excuses
Cos your expectations
Lack the relations
I desire

If you're know lookin' to pay the price
Just so you can cut it cheap
Then tell me why I should play it nice
Cos if you're not workin' to keep
Then you're just gonna lose me

Then you're just gonna lose me
Then you're just gonna lose me
Then you're just gonna lose me
Then you're just gonna lose me...

If you're know lookin' to pay the price
Just so you can cut it cheap
Then tell me why I should play it nice
Cos if you're not workin' to keep
Then you're just gonna lose me

I think that
you have the makings of a really, really good track here.

Since you are asking, one comment would be that I think the stereo/panning effects could go much wider. I really like the vocal effects but they may be more effective and dynamic if used a bit less and when they do come in, with more venom and wider.

These are just my first observations and I might be totally wrong - so feel very free to ignore them.

Having said that, it is a great lyrical idea and I really like the arrangement and your vocals.

Just don't ask me for any advice on your boyfriends, us old geezers here are probably very out of touch with all that.

Cheers
Len

what kinda girl
I like the effected vox, adds a good dimension to the song like when you sing your just gonna lose me, BTW you dont need a creep like that . This does have a sticking point that stays inside my head and thats a good thing!

Nice job , lyrics from the heart and I like the driving beat and synth. Vocals are working well ...I agree with Len with spreading the field out more. Right know everything is narrow through the middle. Open the mix up wider. Excellent job ... a few tweaks with the mix and it would be even better.
Cheers

interesting !- great energy .
again it is like 'missing persons' or something.
well it is great and so too are your words -
well i guess dirty hair does not matter -
it means nothing really -
but i guess after it is washed - i feel more invigorated - . . .

Great pop track!
I love that you're using all these vox effects.. it suits the song very well! If I may offer a suggestion it would be to put your vocal more down in the mix, maybe add a tiny bit more reverb to let the vox fall more in place.. otherwise, great track you've done here.. :) Love Heidi
