Lyrics
The winter was spent
Shining shoes
That were meant
To walk away from you
And I don't know what's come over me
I'm losing hope
That this is all a dream

Am I over you?
Are you over me?
If this is true,
Can we just make believe

Somewhere on the bleakest night
You whispered things would be alright
And I felt like a kid
Somewhere once within these walls
You played your songs so loud that the neighbors called
And I was glad that you did
Somewhere I saw in your eyes
A light that danced in time with mine
And we were three sides of a pyramid

The winters dark chill
came at a cost
And now our mouths are filled
With words as cold as frost
And I'm so lost...

So you moved out there
To where palm trees grow
And left me here
Under skies of snow
And I can't decide
What feels worse
Getting left behind
Or skipping church
Cuz I don't know
If I still believe
Praying for what I want
Is really what I need

What do I need?

We were three sides of a pyramid

excellent...
guitar and vocal. The former clear and crisp. The latter beautifully
executed (Michael Stipe-ish in places). I really like the vocal harmonies a
lot.

Mr. Songwriter
You write very compelling songs. You sing great. The chorus is very cool. Solid guitar playing. Lyrics are quite poetic. The over all mix sounds a bit bright. lacking bottom end. I'd didn't understand the 'three sides of a pyramid' line.As a line that is repeated often, I was thinking the metaphor had to do with the ever-lastingness of the pyramid in the context of an ever-lasting relationship and the relationship in the song didn't last. But you are two people, hmmm...am I missing someting? Don't get me wrong, I like your writing and I like that you are thinking about the lyrics. You ever listen to Macjam artist jonx? That guy is a simply an amazing lyrics writer. I listen to his songs over and over. He's a lyricist worth studying.

Mr. Songwriter
Thanks for your words Alley, The three sides of a Pyramid metaphor has to do
with the notion that when two things are connected, be it spiritually or
emotionally, they make up more than the sum, in this case it would be two
people making up the whole of a three sided pyramid. I know I may be
stretching but it just sounded cool. Anyway, thanks for caring enough to ask
and keep on strummin!

I write songs, sometimes they mysteriously end up here. I like to express things through songs. All I really play is the acoustic guitar and the occasional midi track. I haven't figured out drums yet, but give me a few years. Garageband is great ... [see more]
