Hey New York (demo)
*

This song is not in a battle


[intro] (C open, D open in C shape)
I know a hill that overlooks New York
You can see for miles even in the dark
Bravery is so scarce and so many people hold back
But I won't, I'm going to pack my bags

[chorus] (G D C Csus2)
I'll just take my leave now
My journey must begin
No one needs me here and
I feel stuck to this place
I'll take my leave now (2x)
Headed off to New York

[verse 1]
I'll find some friends, yeah
And for a while settle down
Maybe find a special someone
That'll hang around
I didn't know where I would go
Then I saw the skyline
framed by the water down below
And I knew this would be my home

[chorus variation 1]
I'm just takin' a vacation
To a town that never ends
No one needs me here and
Gone are my best friends
I'll take my leave now (2x)
Headed off to New York

[verse 2]
I want to get into theater
Acting's what I'll do
Or maybe be a high school teacher
That'll be easy to get into
Or maybe I'll write songs
Bring peace to someone's heart
I don't know what you'd say
But I think I've got a headstart

[bridge]
No one needs me here now
So I guess I'll just go
No goodbyes or apologies

No one needs me here now
So I guess I'll just go
No goodbyes or apologies
That's how it oughta be

[chorus variation 2]
I'll just take my leave now
My journey has to begin
But no one needs me here yet
I'm already missin' it
I'll just take my leave now
I'll take my leave now
Headed off to New York

[outro] (999x)
Hey New York

You have great ideas ,You need to sing with more confidence you definitely have a good voice so let it roll.Another song with potential!
Also a bit flat in some notes but I think is related to your vocal projection !!

Yeah another good song, I still think you should try out a different mic, this one has a good bass response but not so sensitive on the treble and dynamics.

Will rate.

Another song with potential, I think that your doing a very good job of this composing business!
I still do think you need to strengthen both vocal and guitar separately and then bring them together.

This is very nice... the very minor  problems you were having in the other song are not in this one.. great chord progression and I think the lyrics are clever as hell.. outstanding song could easily be a radio hit with just a tad better production on it..   gets very high vote
