A folky ditty about a perceived lack of love in the city.

I like the way the guitar melody and the piano melody kind of intertwine around each other, particularly around the half-minute mark.

Near the end, are the extended notes keys or vocals? I can't tell.

Nice rainy day song.

The extended notes near the end are vocals, I put them low down n the mix though to keep them subtle. I kinda like it when you can't be sure what an instrument is or where the sound is coming from.

Thanks for the comments!

I liked this a lot. I think my favourite thing is the tasteful piano part; just picking out certain notes, sorta Nick Drake-like.
I generally hate unsolicited advice (and feel free to tell me off), but I think a quick fade in right before and fade out right after your vocal parts would make the whole thing a bit more polished, as there's a bit of a hiss on that track that's slightly jarring when it just cuts in and out.
Great song.

Chococat, your advice is genuinely appreciated. I'm learning to get better at recording, and trying to use my ears better in the process. You've pointed something out that I would've otherwise missed! Glad you enjoyed the song.
