Description
This is song I wrote in one of those desperate moments. I recorded it all in one track so there will be some additional noises like guitar movement. I really tried to be as quiet as I could! I'ts so hard. I will probably re-record this properly one day.

Lyrics:
I'm not trying to hurt your feelings, I'm not trying to make you cry,
I'm just trying to help you get by.

Another day a new beginning another night a new ending
where say goodnight or we say goodbye,
we say good night or we say goodbye

I have come from that dreaded school of hard knocks and the broken rules,
then you followed me there,

Now all the lights oh they shine on you like the main attraction in some 2-bit zoo
your waiting for the freeze to thaw,
your waiting for the freeze to thaw,

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do when my arms are full,
My heavy heart oh its dragging across the floor,
I know that life is game that doesn't have any rules
and I feel like a fool
feel like a fool

I'm not trying to hurt your feelings, I'm not trying to make you cry,
I'm just trying to help you get by.

Our hands are tied to a couple of cards that rule our fate by the luck of the draw
and I don't think you need to fold
There's something now you need to hold

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do when my arms are full,
My heavy heart oh its dragging across the floor,
I know that life is game that doesn't have any rules
and I feel like a fool
feel like a fool

I'm not trying to hurt your feelings, I'm not trying to make you cry,
I'm just trying to help you get by.

Very, very nice!
You have a great voice, and your performance here is outstanding. Some great images in the lyrics ("main attraction in some two-bit zoo" - beautiful...) and - despite the sadness - there is beauty in the music. Some nice changes, and a solid arrangement. Parts call out for harmonies to my ear, and if you ever do re-record this, I'd consider it. Very cool. Glad I stopped by. Peace.

Lovely song.
Lyrics?Lyrics?Lyrics?Would love to read along while soaking in the sounds.Like the raw one take approach,but a more produced sound with some additional sounds and or voicings would really add to this sweet solid song.Enjoyed.

Blessings,

Thank You dajama and Godchaser
I am glad you like this song. I love doing harmonies so I think I will add more vocals when I do re-record. Sorry about not adding the lyrics - I thought I had them typed out when I posted the song. I will add them though because I agree it is important.

Thanks again
