Description
Not often I have a track with my own vocals, probably going to regret it too!

Let me know what you think! (I think.... actually don't. Just say I sound brilliant, and I'll accept that wonderful feedback and just run and hide back under my duvet!)

Lyrics
Do you know what I would feel like if you stood here right by my side?
Do you know where we could be now if you hadn't left me on my own?
Have you any idea where we could be standing now?
You're missing out on the good life by yourself.

Yeah, give me more now!
Come on!
Yeah, give me more yeah.

There was a day when things went alright but it wasn't quite what we liked.
There was a time when we couldn't hold on to what we dreamed.
So I took a leap of faith, I put in all I had.
I wish that you'd done the same, then we could both be here.

Yeah, give me more now! Come on, give me more yeah!
Yeah, give me more now! Come on, give me more yeah!
Yeah, give me more now! Come on, give me more yeah!

Man
you have so much talent but like me you bash your vocals left and right. Frankly I wish I had even part of your vocal ability. Yes ok... you sound brilliant! Ok even better.

This is a wonderful piece with lots of interesting stuff going on. I enjoyed all of it and the vocals were just fine... really actually very just fine!

Nicely done.

Great and very catchy song.
Really like the hand clap rhythm.
Is it too predictable to ask for a middle eight?
That's about the only thing that felt like it was missing.
Vocals and harmonies fine by me
cheers

Keep singing!
Yes, there are flaws; however one thing I HATE in vocal work, and it's a common problem, is poor enunciation. None of that here, I understood every word and didn't have to read the lyrics to find out what they were, so you're way ahead of most in my eyes just because of that. As for the voice itself, it's actually not bad, and it will almost certainly get better if you practise. The most important thing is that you convey the emotion of the song and hit (roughly) the right notes, and you did that pretty well here.

Nice song, there's a strong rhythmic content and plenty of clarity and punch in the mixing, with no muddy loss of the details. A fine mix is no more than I would expect from you though, so no surprises there.

I say again, keep singing!

amazing
that you understood every word, because I was more pissed than the arlesey priest.

A fine song, well performed and produced. I'd like to hear more so a middle 8 as Fire Angel suggested may be a way to do that. Kudos.

Great job! This feels like a coming out party. The alcohol in the mix doesn't present itself as a problem. The release of inhibition in the drink has allowed for some depth in your response to the material- so be it your not alone there. So we could use the words like "feel" or "soul" to qualify the difference. Alcohol works.
The production is clean and bright as usual. Suggestions? Some angular guitar work on the ride out came to mind and then a punchy horn section? An R&B horn section might be just the structure to light the fire here. Even a bit of clavichord on the existing key stabs would add a streetwise flavor.
Allow for one more suggestion? Put your ideas into things. For example, instead of a line like, "Have you any idea where we could be standing now?" Name the place and the ambience of the physical location will carry meaning and give the listener a concrete meme to hold in mind. Pull the listener in with things that hold meaning instead of employing the naked ideas of the pop world. Give your lyrics weight with things.
Great job, I will be back for more!

You do - actually - sound - brilliant.
Gorgeous mix, really sparse and grooving. You have nothing, nothing to be ashamed of in the vocal department. A great addition to MJ, a real musical blue-blood at that.
