The Fall

Get Flash to see this player.

Brand new composition written and recorded Summer 2013. Kind of a break up song but in that moment when it's all gone too far and there's no turning back.
I've tried to get some texture in the vocals and played with some new strum patterns beyond my usual fairly plodding style. I've tried to use a lead guitar to drive the whole song too, in a change from my chord based material.
Lots of loud guitars of course - some things never change.
Play loud and enjoy.

I just dont remember a single word you said

I don't know what's right or what is wrong

I look into your eyes, imagine my surprise

The girl I fell in love with now is gone


We had everything we needed

Nothing was too much

Now nothing's the same

We're falling down

We're falling down


I just never wondered where it is we're going

I just wonder what it is went wrong

Our hearts were once entwined

But nothing's left to find

The man you fell in love with now is gone

Man, I just thought to check on macjams and this place is a ghost town. Not one comment on this tune!?! Everybody's at the beach.

This has a bouncy pop vibe that I like a lot - made me think toad the wet sprocket, that tuneful early 90's melancholic radio stuff. Really like how you bring that funky rhythm guitar into the second chorus. Vocals are perfect. Your phrasing is so unique, I never know if I want to tell you to check your timing or if that's an eccentricity you can get away with. I've listened a bunch of times and still not sure. Maybe check the timing of the phrasing in the verses? Singing is otherwise great. As always I really enjoy your songs, they're stuck in a very much defined place and I get nostalgic when I hear them. I'll call it the 'last days of rolling stone' era...

I grew up in the 70's and 80's in the south of the UK in an Irish family. I had always loved music but was never given an opportunity to explore making it for myself. About 10 years ago I bought an acoustic guitar and began strumming in earnest. To d... [see more]
