Love/Stupidity

I added lyrics to my fruityloops experiment.
Its a short song, but I'm quite proud.
Its dedicated to my ex boyfriend, who is now my best friend and my lover... Yeh, work that one out.

Lyrics:

Why do you insist
That I am something special?
Have you not listened at all
How can you know
The ugly things I've done
And still call me beautiful
You call me beautiful...

Is it love?
Or stupidity?
It can't be love,
Because it's hurting me.
Is it love?
Or stupidity?
It can't be love,
Because its hurting me.

It's been six months,
A hell of a bumpy ride,
And I am amazed,
That you're still by my side.
Six months, feels just like all my life,
I know you don't believe in marriage,
But I'd love to be your wife.

Is it love?
Or stupidity?
Is it love?
That binds you to me>
Is it love?
Or are we just being silly.

[Lol, I instantly regretted the last line...as soon as I'd converted it into an mp3. I can't think of a song that uses 'Silly' and gets away with it.]

MERRY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL!

Wow
What should I say....  This is so great.  Don't take me too serious coz people in love are blind and I'm in love with your music.  Especially that point where the strings start playing. 
I'm sure you'll become famous and me and many others will buy your CDs (by the way - is there already one?)...   I showed your music to all of my friends and all of them were impressed, yes and I'm proud of knowing you yet...  :-)
Keep it on

Hi there,

YES that's it. Not perfect for 100%. But again the buildup is fine and this kind of music creates a new genre. It's porcelain-ish. IMO i would use less effect to the voice to let your vocals stand in the front (OMG english is not my tounge) hope you know what I mean. But this tune is on the way right to the top. Congratulations!

You are very talented. Very deep sound, very crisp all.. and that lovely voice of yours.

I am amazed how you manage to translate the insecurities of the message to the music. I mean it's not all just plain happiness in your tune - the dissonance mentioned earlier, and the vocal harmonies - touches the great unknown with all great life's questions that are there. Such as What is love, really?

Love is a many sided thing. To some, it's many splintered. But I love your music.

Keep it up.

Top Drawer as usual. Very distinctive style which is not getting lost in the maze of influences to which by now you must be getting.

OK now for the last line... because of the way you pitch it, your audience is going to take that away with them, so it's a bit of a weak line to leave them with. So how about..
..
..
Or was it just Stupidity?

that ties it in to the title & the underlying theme of the lyrics and leaves the question hanging in the air (because you still don't know). Note the use of "was it.." instead of "is it...", that's important.

P.S. The opinions of Dr. Rewrite will be understood by some & not by others but should never be interpreted as a mere criticism of the song.  - Dr. R.

rock on women!!!!
this song has alot of power to it
what happened to school? you better still be going!!!
anyways, this is another great work from you - you never let me down, my wife loves your work

it is alittle short - but that 'silly' line isn't that silly
it is a word:::

sil·ly    ( P )    (sl)
adj. sil·li·er, sil·li·est
Exhibiting a lack of wisdom or good sense; foolish. See Synonyms at foolish.
Lacking seriousness or responsibleness; frivolous: indulged in silly word play; silly pet names for each other.
Semiconscious; dazed: knocked silly by the impact.


[Middle English seli, silli, blessed, innocent, hapless, from Old English gesælig, blessed.]
silli·ly (sl-l) adv.
silli·ness n.

anyways - i know there is some songs out there using the word silly - besides - this is art - not a contest, well, after the contest is over, you still have your song LOL

great work
A++++++++++++++

hehe, I'm not surprised how everyone has reacted to this song. The lyrics just say sooo much and convey a point very quickly, but a deep and thoughtful point. Very well done on the vox, a little too much effect on them, but it's not bad.
I completely disagree with arroseuk. I think the last line really punched it with me bc you've already stated stupidity and I was expecting stupidity but came away with a better line.
I really like your midi drums, too. Anyway, once again, great song!

Not my favorite of yours, but still in all another good song. 

Although I love the sound of your voice, I don't particularly like the vocal line - slightly too repetitive for me.  But the blend of the other instruments are very nice.

As for the lyrics - they say what you feel, which is a good thing.  I know what you mean about the last line, but don't think I'd change it - like Creative says, you've covered the stupidity bit, so using "silly" is fine.

By the way, you really do have loads of talent - and I still love your voice!
