Carpe Diem



 Genre: Electropop

Get Flash to see this player.

At some point, I feel it gets tough to describe a song. "I wrote this when I was feeling that" or "I experimented with this audio unit", heheh! ... I think I'll leave it at, "Hey, I made a song! :)"

You have chased so long to find your dream.
You have run so far to get away.
Prove to me your wrong, that you feel insane.
If your will is strong then you won't have to keep the blame.

Sometimes life is hard and full of fear.
Sometimes you feel lost and it's all unclear.
Hold me in your heart and you'll find a salvation here.

Take your precious heart into the air.
Hold it in your arms, there's a pain to bear.
Hold it in your arms, and you'll find a salvation there.

Move on from the past and leave behind
your hold on the burden of the time of day.
And we'll find a better way.
That's if you believe.

One tear is enough to ease the pain.
One tear is enough to wash the rain away.
And then you will seize the day.
But that's if you believe.

Carpe Diem
The voice of the singer suits the music. Instrument choices are spot on for a song in this genre. Each of the instruments sits nicely in the mix. Good job, I liked this song

Thanks Dave!
I've played with how I sing over time and have rested in a spot on this and the last track that I like quite a bit. Kind of a comfortable level to sing.

More smoke!
I was very pleased to see your name on the songlist, thrilled you're back to share your voice and talent. I dig this straightforward track, the use of your voice. The single note makes the chord changes in "Move on from the past" section more powerful. I dig this track, with cool art too. Thanks.

Thanks Tobin!
Thanks for the feedback... it's good to see you're still roaming the halls of MJ. I'm on a bit of a roll, so hopefully I can keep the momentum going.

The Pulse/The Voice
You chose a great electroskeleton to build upon. That pulse gallops along and gives you a vast arena to explore vocally and synthetically. Your back up vox that kick in after 3 minutes are really great. That synth riff that follows is awesome too.

Man, I am officially a fan of your music - I'm working backwards from the newest to the oldest and hacking randomly just to lose the trail of anyone following me. If I can shake the robots, the humans will thank me.
