Lyrics
I remember when you said
"Is this real, or is this in my head?"
And I begged you not to go
Then I watched as you went
Now I'm lying on the floor,
wondering what my heart is for
Heaven help me lie, I'm fine

Now the winter's setting in
Cold fingers on my skin
I can feel the summer go
Soft and slow
I'll show you my teeth
While inside I weep
Heaven help me lie, I'm fine

I don't want you to go
I don't want you to go
Please don't go
Please don't go

The look on your face said it all
Knock me down when I'm standing tall
And your silence speaks volumes and volumes
If I wasn't here, you'd have fewer problems
So tear out my heart, tear out my heart,
tear out my, tear out my, tear out my heart
Heaven help me lie, I'm fine

Great singing
hey you sound as good in English as Spanish! A real breathy quality to your voice and well recorded. Have to admit the drum beat gets a bit repetative after a while,so looking forward to the remix. Cheers Mark

Sweet Melody
I'll show you my teeth, While I weep inside is a nice lyric.

Great vocals, especially the harmonies - they sit well in the mix. You have one of those voices that doesn't need much else around it, so the rather bareness of the sound bed works in your favor. The guitar tone is perfect for your voice. I bet you sound fantastic with just a piano as well. How awesome is that?

I agree that a bit of variation on the drums would be an improvement, but that's the only thing I can think of!

fragile strength
There's a fragility in your voice that's breathtaking, good singing & harmonies, great flowing piece of music here, good lyrics. The recording is OK, but your singing clips in a couple of places, and the EQ could be tweaked a bit to make it a little richer-sounding, and maybe halt the drums before that last guitar strum... but those are minor technical thingies... overall this is an excellent piece of music. Welcome to Macjams. Looks like you live just up the street from me :-)
ttfn,

Heaven Help Me Lie
Nice melody & harmony. Good imagery in the lyric "Cold fingers on my skin". Could use some rhythmic variation, and perhaps some variation in the melody over the refrain & the bridge. Despite these nits, a very nice song.

Beautiful! You have great talent! This one almost has the feel of a Nelly Furtado song, like your older stuff on one of her first two albums. Nice arrangement! Thanks for sharing!
