It Wasn't Real


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is an early rough draft, so please be kind. My friend Scott made up the chord progression and I played around with it a bit. I created the melody and wrote some lyrics, trying to feel out a song. The recording is average, nothing special. One guitar track, vocals, and drums. I realize the drums don't match up very well and are a little too...poppy. The song is also incomplete, still needs alot added. I haven't had much time to record lately so this is all I'll be posting for sometime.
Thanks for listening, any feedback is appreciated, enjoy!

Lyrics
I wanted to stay asleep
I don’t want to remember
All that hope should be
Was long, long gone
Long Gone

I tried to stay awake
But my mind wouldn’t let me
Can’t forget, can’t stay asleep
Can’t go on
Go on

And here I am again alone
Still waiting for you to come
I thought I knew what it was I needed
But look what I’ve become

I’ve lost my way; I’ve lost my hold
I’m breaking away, not in control
I’m caught in the moment, searching for something to feel
I wish it wasn’t real

very nice
I really enjoyed this song. You have a great voice and play guitar nicely. Like you mentioned, the drums may be a bit off sounding, but honestly, I think this is a really good song. You did an excellent job!

Great!
Man, I loved your work since the 1st post. Here you've a very great song that could be even greater if you spend more time tweaking it a little bit. The vocals are superb and nothing wrong, the guitar playing is very nice also, but the drums sounds a little "stiff" in spots and loud in the mix. I'm not an expert to tell what to do but I guess a light compression and some fills will be good. And some light strings and lovely piano line... Cool post.

Take Care

nice start
i think you have the basics here for a really good song. That's the important thing. You should develop it and not let it slip away

I think this could
be a great song. As it is, it's very good, and the lyrics are well done. I see what you mean about the drums, but really things like that can be changed. Once you have the song, you're golden. Hope you get the time to come back to this and work on it some more. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.
