Um, here's a song I wrote in my bedroom/basement.

I still need to mess with the levels a bit.

Uh, here's a comment I wrote in my heart: very cool! You have a really nice voice. Can you post the lyrics?

(I'm hoping that was a clever opening... hoo boy.)

hi & thank you. lyrics are as follows:

a presence lingers in this house
through the walls
shifting silence around

under decades' worth of dust
a chandelier
hangs over pictures
of us, untouched

prop me up
cover my ears
it's the static
and we've been listening
for years

how could you forget your vows?
i can't imagine
what i would ever do

a scattered light
illuminates the ghost in the room
i never thought
i'd be the one
to haunt you

you were a hard thing
for me to undo

your love's a hard thing
for me to undo

in the spirit of shameless self-promotion, there will be more songs posted very soon at

thanks again for listening.

Wow... I wondered back on to MeFi Music today after a long absence, hoping to find some wheat amongst the chaff (I'm sadly harder to please than I used to be, as far as music is concerned) and instead struck gold.

The composition of the song is fantastic to start, but the vocals are unbelievable. Strong and fragile all at once. Please keep posting. I loved this.

I am a sucker for tiny bells and for harmonies. This is good. Nice drums, too -- like a tiny Portishead. I really like that instro breakdown after "...without."

I would maybe suggest a popfilter to cut down a little on the plosive p's.

I really dig this arrangement, and song, and just about everything. Agreed with Karlos the Jackal, though: a pop filter (and not moving around the mic) would improve the vocal tracks.

Wow, this is great. The slow building intro is just right, and the vocals come in at just the right place.

Greatness. I'll hopefully be able to catch a live show.
