Lyrics
I see her eyes behind 100 people.
Build up my courage, to introduce myself
And I approach her.
She slowly turns away
before I even get there.
But it don't hurt so bad
because
her memory
lingers on

And every night
she's lying next to me
but every single day she's gone.

And is this my way
My way home again
And is she my way
My way home again.

My way home, oh my way home.

And is this my way
My way home again.
And is she my way
My way home again.

I see her eyes
Behind 100 people
She slowly turns away
My emotional mirage.

Story in the making
I like the idea behind the lyrics. I think there's a lot of ground to explore there that you only begin to tap. The vocal performance is great and I particularly like the chorus, but could use more of a set-up through the verse. Why is this guy alone? What does this imaginary partner represent? Etc.

The gutiar is really nice - very rhythmic and the chords make for some strong emotional movements. Sounds great in the mix as well.

The vocal levels are sort of inconsistant. In general I think they're a just little low, but sometimes they peak and recede unexpectedly. It sort of sounds like you were moving around when recording and varied your distance from the microphone. A little bit of compression can smooth out some of those variations in volume.

Great tune. The sound is really full considering its just you and a guitar.

Story in the making
Thanks for the comments, much appreaciated. I wrote this pretty young, so maybe I could revisit and expand the verses somewhat. I definitely blew the vocal recording somewhat, but I'm afraid to mess up a good take. Overall this song just sort of flowed out of me in about 15 minutes, and I'm glad to hear someone feels it.

I agree with Chikoppi about the vocal... a lot of this will be
cured with an external mic... even the guitar will sound
better (and it sounds great now).

As far as messing up a good take goes... did you record
guitar and voice at the same time? If they are on seperate
tracks you could just start a new track for the vocal and
re-record. Keep only what you like.

Great song and you have an awesome voice. I look
forward to hearing more of your music.

Thanks!

Yeah I made the amteur mistake of singing and playing at the same time, which
messed me up for a bunch of reasons in post. If and when I get an external
mic I'll definitely re-do this one. I really appreciate the compliment, I've always
been sensitive to how my voice sounds to others!
