Lyrics
That Kind Of Girl

I’m the kind of girl who wears her heart on her sleeve
I trip over everything and fall for things just as easily
I use too many words to say things I shouldn’t say
I sing what I can’t think and I’m better off that way

I don’t know if
You know I am
Trying hard to
Hold my tongue

I figured it’s the right time to tell you I’m not in love
I figured it’s about time to tell you you’re who I’m dreamin of
I figured out around this time, I’d tell you what we’ve got
And well all I know is I just like you a lot

I’m the kind of girl who wears sweaters in the spring
I like roses with thorns and I don’t mind a bee sting
I’m pretty sure I’m strange but what you get is what you see
I trust everyone I meet unless they fall in love with me

I don’t know if
You know I am
Trying hard to
Bite my tongue

And do you care?

I figured it’s the right time to tell you I’m not in love
I figured it’s about time to tell you you’re who I’m dreamin of
I figured out around this time, I’d tell you what we’ve got
And well all I know is I just like you a lot

Did I mention I’m totally unprepared
Did I mention that I am scared
All I say isn’t all that’s true
All I know is all I can do

I don’t know if
You know I am
Trying hard to
Bite my tongue

And do you care?

I figured it’s the right time to tell you I’m not in love
I figured it’s about time to tell you you’re who I’m dreamin of
I figured out around this time, I’d tell you what we’ve got
And well all I know is I just like you a lot

That Kind of Girl
Nice lyric and well sung. I like the variations in the phrasing. I'm getting an Angel Taylor vibe from this.

raw talent!
raw recording! excellent, if this is this good, imagine what a full blown pro recording of this song would be, a hit that's what! You have huge potential beyond your already advanced development for your age, great job! Love the uke!

Very cool
Very interesting combination of a sexy vocal with a ukelele in the background. Very good voice and playing. Enjoyed it!

thank youu!
haha thanks so much- when i picked up the uke i started listening to a lot of ingrid michaelson and sarah bareilles which has a laid back feel, and though it's not the same i think it kind of shows through. I'm glad you enjoyed it! thanks for the listenn and comment!

nice clear vocals
I like the combination of the purity of your voice with the equally pure uke tones. Cool bridge as well, in the "did I mention" part. Great work!

Is there a second uke part in there somewhere--I'm hearing occasional single-note parts here and there in one channel, which in the spirit of honesty and candor I could probably do without.

thank youu
thanks for the feedback!- yeah i did a lot of debating about whether or not to include those little ornament things, but i'm going to add harmonies so i'm hoping they'll function as sort of a third part. and the bridge is my favorite part of this song! :) thanks for your input, i'll consider revising this version.

Nice tune. I like the lyrics. Is it a live recording or were the rhythm uku and vocal track recorded separately?

live
one track is live and then i added some effects on some uke ornaments that i messed up in the original recording. but the vocal and uke are together.

Bre, you have more talent than you think, you have a very natural voice...a bit of Edie Brikell tone, very earthy. Nicely structured song..I like it!

Sweet Poppy Feel
This reminded me of a mash up of Zoey D. and Ingrid Michaelson. Definitely a very enjoyable and fun uke tune. Great stuff.

Delightfully cute writing/singing
You actually get that Uke to sound sweet, and the lyrics and delivery are heart-meltingly sweet. I think the second uke track (that has a slow EQ filter on it) could probably be dropped and just have your singing and main strumming. If you've not already, check out some music by "Joanna" here, she's been getting into ukelele lately too. Very nice to hear new stuff from you!
ttfn,
Drakonis

yay!
i'm so happy to hear you're still tuning in to hear my stuff! haha- thank you so much. I do think the song needs another edit, but it was one of those "i'd rather get it out there than keep working" moments. I'll go listen to Joanna asap. Thank you!

Nice___
You have a wonderful voice. I always liked the uke - in fact I actually bought one - never taken the opportunity to record it yet - maybe your my inspiration.(?) This is a lovely song.

Enjoyed - Thanks for sharing,

Unexpected gem
Breanna, I was ready to switch off when the first uke notes came on at the start (I'm not a big fan of ukes!), but I hung in and am really enjoying the song and your voice (and yes, even the uke). I hear Edie Brikell too, but moreso Liz Phair (who I really like).
Great song done really well.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil
