This song is not in a battle


Finally! It works! this is quite seriously my 6th attempt at getting this song to load and play. Well done Chester. Well done.

Yes, so this is an old song... but has always held sentimental value with me

Check out my other stuff, I load another 2 songs today. A piano one, and then half a song... because i lost the other half... long story.

Seems a lot of people are adding lyrics. So I thought I'd put mine on a couple of songs


VERSE 1

So youíve run away again?
And left nothing in your place.
Except a shadow and a sin,
Etched forever in your space.

PRECHORUS:

Than she turns to you and smiles,
At where youíve been.
And says life ainít,
Evergreen.

CHORUS:

Come fall down,
Get blown around.
Youíre a leaf up in the air,
And itís the autumn of your year.

VERSE 2

Well time is coming round the bend,
It seems you try too hard to smile.
And itís only near the end,
That you find your inner child.

PRECHORUS:
Itís always,
Inbetween.
That you find life ainít,
Evergreen.

CHORUS:

Come fall down,
Get blown around.
Youíre a leaf up in the air,
And itís the autumn of your year. X2

OUTRO:

Youíre a leaf up in the air,
And itís the autumn of your year.
Your year.

lovely, lovely song!
really loved it. the chords progression was really nice and ur voice, as well. really liked ur voice, sweet and warm, i'd say is a honey voice. the guitar was well played. id suggest to play some synth in the back of some "strong" parts to give it a more loud sound. but the song is lovely anyway. u made a GREAT GREAT job.
u have my 100% rate.

PS: ur voice is lovely...ohhh, seems i said that, but no way, once more, LOVE-LY VOI-CE

I like this! Good progression on the bridge! I'd like the sound of your fingers through the strings to be less obvious....yeah I know I got fussy, just a detail.
Very nice work!
I bit shorter wouldn't harm though

Yeah. It's about 4 minutes. That's what most of my songs end up being. I should add a bridge maybe. VOTE! This is the first time i've entered a battle and it's really interesting :P

Thoughtful lyrics. Length was fine for an album version - you can always invoke Mr Edit if somebody asks you to release it for radio play. Good Job (& yes I voted )

Awesome song. You have a wonderful voice. Absolutely fabulous guitar playing. Although...the swiping is a bit too loud, IMhumbleO. Where do you mic your guitar at?
Wonderful lyrics...I've downloaded it.

Hey Creative,
Yeah the swiping is really loud, but I've always been a sucker for upfront swiping. But to be honest, what these are are studio recordings before being mixed or mastered. These are just raw raw raw recordings that i've myself crudely put a bit of reverb into at home. I believe the guitar was mic'd at either end of the guitar and also in the middle. But i could be wrong, that might just be the more recent recordings. This is a couple of years old and I've recorded so much stuff! I can't remember it all.

Holy crap!
holy crap was this well done!

Chill said you've got the best voice on the site... not a contest, i know ... but I would say you tie with JBP for best voice...

regardless, this song is amazing... this might be the only song I have heard that was just one guitar and one voice to get 100%. Amazing!

Beautiful!    I can't tell you how much I love your song, it's wonderful.  Seriously, if you released an album I'd be the first one to purchase.

You said the song holds some sentimental value for you, right?  Well, I think that really comes across in how it's presented.  As Iszil said in the first post, you have a beautiful, it carrys the mood of the song so well.

I could rave about it all day but you'll tire of me, no doubt.  It's just so good, best I've ever heard here at BandAMP!

enjoyed unusual chord progression, string squeek was distracting, voice good. I agree a bridge would add a contrast. Really nice basis for a really good song, go on develop it further!
well done
