Sinking Heart
*

This song is not in a battle


i'd rather be drifting lost at sea,
without a compass or map,
with nowhere to be.
but i'm here anchored to a town,
with nothing to do except,
keep sinking...

down.
i'll keep sinking down.
i'll keep sinking...
its hard to see the silver lining
on this cloud.
i let you down,
and they let you down,
we're all sinking...
cracks in the pavement swallow souls
in this town.

this heart upon my sleeve,
its always in the way.
if i was sea worthy i'd,
sail so far away
your heart upon the waves,
is heavy with the rain,
if i came to bail you out,
would you sail with me again?

i guess we'll remain strangers,
riding many storms on different seas,
but our currents have colided here,
your eyes have brought me to my knees,
i'm sinking...

down.
i'll keep sinking down.
we'll keep sinking...
i want to make you smile and come around
but i've killed it now
i let you down,
and you brought me down,
we're both sinking...
i've seen that i missunderstood you.
and i've killed it now,
before it ever was,
now it'll never be
before it ever was
now it'll never be

you will find a seaworthy
ship, you will sail away
something you can love and trust,
until your dying day
this heart upon my sleeve,
keeps me bound this way.
my heavy heart is pulled appart,
i'm sinking.

okay, you definately put some more attention to this one.

so, great vocal work, those harmonies are great.

I do think that this song has a lot of words... crowded with (your lovely) voice, however personally I'd prefer some more instruments-only parts... you could build this tune into 8-minutes like, make it something really big, with the catchy "(I'm) sinking down" as a hook.

so .. . . . . great vocal work - - - could use a bigger, longer instrumental track to put them to... yeah, I think that's it, from my view.

btw, nice piano

I really love the mental images that this one conjures up for me.  I can picture someone sinking deeper and deeper in the ocean as the song progresses. It's great.

You piece together your great vocals with the instrument sounds extremely well - I don't agree with PX about it being crowded with your voice; I think the lyrics are delivered really well, and they fit well with the music accompaniment, and paint the image I describe above.

This is good work once again.

In my humble opinion...
The best potential so far

“...it’s hard to see the silver lining on this cloud.” Nice image. It gives a nice contrast to “see” and "sinking"… What do you mean by “this cloud”? Wouldn’t be ok with just “cloud”?

Harmonies.
The rhythm you singing in. It falls just on right place.
Metal thing in the background

Not to match =)
Drums could be a bit more discreet (steeling attention to match)
Arrangement… I would do it in a more “minimalistic” maner (ush my English)
