Description
(This is a song about having thoughts of suicide every day but not giving in to them, being "Unyielding". My producer friend told me to shorten this down to 4 minutes and I did some more post production. Me on vocals/synths/bass. Cheers Enjoy :)

Lyrics
"Well I've been holding back all these tears
for all these years
and can't hold back much longer
i'm about to let it go
but I never give up
I am unyielding

Every day I see no empathy
no sympathy
from the humans
I try my best
but they don't listen
to me

Now i'm starting to see
the truth
everything our fathers told us
was a lie
the older I get
the more i realize
nobody knows what they're doing
and neither do i
neither do i

Not sure what i'm doing
on this planet
any more
I'm about ready to leave
but only if she comes with me

The only one I've ever loved
blew what i had with her long ago
she doesn't know
what I'm feeling now
because I drove her away
with my anger
and my rage
and now she's turned away
now she's turned away

Every day I add another pill
and lose more of my will
to stick around
been looking for an answer
and nothing is found
all I have is my sound
that is my life
the space between my ears
where I create love

Nothing else matters to me
I'm running out of time
to finish my symphony

Every day I notice my brain slipping
away
but it's getting easier
to stay
because my love for her grows
instead of fades
maybe if I write a song good enough
she will come back to me

Chorus:
I never give up
i am unyielding
i never give up
i am unyielding
never give up
i am unyielding
never give up
i am unyielding
never give up
never give up
never give up
I am unyielding"

This is a couple steps
away from being a great song. The only issue is that I think that your vocals are a bit distorted and their timing is a bit off. I really dig the aesthetic you're going for (90s U2, Bowie, etc)

Thanks my friend :)
The timing is a bit off on purpose it's kind of used to counterpoint the synths melody and create a gradual progression of chaos to uniformity. I do it when I'm playing my instruments/singing. You might notice in the last 30 seconds it becomes bang on :)

unyielding
heavy lyrics, but straight from the heart
the synths pounding in the message
the vocals could us some reverb, but the bare vocals fit the words
good one!

Thanks KC!
Yes when I wrote that poem it was about my own suicidal thoughts I've had and not giving in to them like many do. It's really a positive song about hope, finding that person when there isn't much left to live for and you love and they will make you want to stay instead of go.

I found this
very moving both musically and in your lyrics.......with your vocal sort of 'confessing' your innermost feelings just slightly behind the Hymn-like music, which almost acts as an intransigent barrier that doesn't listen, or hides the words you say; words which need to be heard. Yes it really moved me and you 'performed this with your real self so well. I'm hoping it was as cathartic for you as it was touching to me, best regards M

Yes thanks my friend
It was cathartic to perform. I don't like doing vocals unless I really have something to say!

Crazy.
But many have felt this way in their lives. This song is flawed, but perfect.
