were you, by chance, up all night making this? I like the style of mixed electronica and real instruments. Your voice also fits the style really quite well. Its balanced quite well as well.

The drum samples are really nice.

yeah, I love staying up all night .. actually with the weather being hot like this, I'm not doing anything else but staying up and listening to my favorite tunes.. so I really know where this is coming from

I think you translated the experience very well! the only sound I'm not so fond of is the strings like sound in the background, it's sounds a bit cheapy, kitschy... but that's just.. well, maybe serving a purpose anyway.

maaann I wish I had more time to compose...

but I gotta cramp it all up in a couple of hours on the weekends I think I'm jealous now..

Lyrics
As requested, here are the lyrics...

Chorus:
staying up all night
listening to our favorite tunes
staying up all night
watching the sun chase the moon

First verse (12:00midnight - 2:00):

empty cans and broken bottles across the room
gum wrappers and small boxes have enclosed our tomb
I look around and see your faces, but nobody's there
silent cries and empty eyes can only harden my stare


Second verse (2:00 - 4:00):
This is that period when everyone has run out of ideas, so you're all lounging on the sofa flipping through the channels, not really focusing on anything.

distant voices speaking softly, but they're shouting out loud
the tourniquet is inbound, but will the car get impound?
it's all so surreal, it's all so monotone
it's like I'm talking to a stranger on the telephone


Note: impound should have been impounded but it flows better as is... nevermind the grammar...

Third verse (4:00 - ...):
This is the final period during which the local radio station starts playing techno and everyone is either going hogwild or is chilling out, again, on the sofa...

that techno beat is what keeps my heart beating inside
that
(beats) is what I crave when my craving's died
...which continues until about 6:30-7:00am, which is when...
I open up my eyes and watch the sky open wide
and I am lifted up high, so come along for the ride

Good work!!!!!
Your music always sounds so well produced and mixed well .............however knowing that you play a few instruments i would like to hear more of your inner talent come through your music rather than the synth stuff. Your voice is good and i've heard your instrument talents so lets hear some more of that.

hey
Blues master has a good point Ben...I think you have a good voice and it seems like your holding back on your singing...I think you should open up more on the voice... and I know you can play your instruments well..and I see you write well also...by all means  this is not destructive criticsism(did I spell it right )...I think you have a god giving talent  and I enjoy your music....let it RIP brother...

wow I really liked this song. The vocals are absolutely perfect for this music. The boosted hi mids and ping pong delay are just the right touch ^_^

I believe I shall download this!
