It’s in the battle 2008-03

I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out, except for my vox which aren't my best. I wrote and recorded this in one day (today, actually), except for the lyrics themselves which were left over from years ago. The person they refer to hasn't even been a part of my life in well over five years, haha. But I'm fairly pleased with how this turned out. Far from perfect, though.

once I was man
who knew what he wanted
once I knew a man
who'd never lie to you
why did you tell him to go?
to make him leave you alone
where did the flowers go this bloody spring

well I guess time has gone
woah, I wish it hadn't
but here we are
why did force me to drown
why did you keep me from reaching the ground
when will the time  come
when I can say
this is our day
why can't this be our day

(inaudible whispering)

"I think that maybe you should look inside of yourself for answers
because there's nothing I can say or do that will make you change your mind
you can go if you want to
or if you feel like you need to
but don't expect me to be here when you get back"

why did you crush all my life
take me apart and put me aside
why oh why oh why?

my life's an open book full of words you never read
survey always says that I'd be better off alone
without you
without you.

I was playing this in the background and only realised by the end of the song that while I wasn't listening with my full attention my foot was tapping and I was humming the tune. I think thats a sign of a great catchy tune, maybe not a show stopper but good relaxed music. very easy on the ear.

Well I'm glad people had some positive stuff to say about this. I've been searching high and low for someone who plays trumpet to re-record the 'weird sound'

I hope more people listen and let me know what they think! Getting feedback like this helps me want to record more.

very cool . I like some of the productions stuff you did in this.  the doubled vox line sounds off at times (it's hard to do).  I like the feel of the song and the melody is very catchy.

gets very good vote
