Description
Just a simple foundation, suggestions for building definitely welcome. Somehow this is about the cynic and optimist in this one head, at least I think. Many thanks for the listen.

Lyrics
Slow down love
Come down low
I'll never compromise you
For such an old fool
Be fair love
Think twice now
These wolves are out to get you
No they don't know like you
To put it in a bag love,
Hide it in your heart love,
Keep it in your soul love,
This road may compromise you
But it's such an old rule.

Come home love
We're all out of love
This song won't sing without you
Too dark a shade of blue
I was wrong love
We got much time
Tick tock don't go without you
O what a dream can do!
Fly it to the moon love,
Show it to the sun love,
Say it all the time love,
She'll never leave without you
It's heavy but it's cool too.

Very nice!

Lovely layered vocals and a relaxed delivery which belies a darkness behind the lyrics (or at least I think it does!)

It all works very well and I'm not sure what else could go on there without getting in the way.

Cheers

Growing
The heart grows
from just one cell
sparking dreams of
love, warmth
that we show
to the world

Nice
Like the groove here. Good use of drums in a ballad. Good phrasing on the vocals. Only small criticism is that you should have phased out the drums at the end and stopped on just your vocal fading out. Of course that's just one man's opinion and others might disagree.

Cool, nice suggestions, I actually agree. Although sometimes I feel like I fade out too often. Many thanks for the listen and thoughtful comments!

Hmm
I think the only thing that could enhance the song would maybe be some orchestral strings at some point. Other than that I always like the acoustic sound of your tracks.

BTW. I have now subscribed to your podcast. You dudes are funny as hell.

Definitely!
I totally hear those strings, if only I had a better orchestral composer's mind! I 'd definitely be up to see what that sounds like. Thanks for subscribing to the podcast, we're a rowdy bunch for sure. Really appreciate you checking it out, we'll definitely be using more spitlogic tracks!!

Really liking this, Nonso. The arrangement gives the song a nice solid feel without overwhelming the quality vocals. Like the lyrics, too. Good post! Thanks, Peter.

Warm vocal that does a great job of making sure the lyrics are front and centre for this piece. Simple backing works well. Good one!
