This song is not in a battle


Haven't said this about a song in a while but... I'M HAPPY WITH THIS!

haha. I worked pretty hard on the vocals and they sound better than usual I think (performance, recording and editing).

Again, this is a bit different in terms of instrumentation. I keep experimenting and trying different ways of doing things.

Lyrics

And I'll find hope inside my dreams
I won't mention anything
And if you like I'll pretend that I care

See I've heard this all before
I can't take it anymore
So please tell me what it is that you want

See if we both tried
To put this right I know
We'd make the best of it

But if you let me leave
Without telling me
Then we're done

What if we were meant to be?
What if hopes and dreams were free?
I can't say I never tried
What if you had never lied
Would that make things better now?
I've gotta know somehow
Then I'll be fine
But I can't read your mind

Such an innocent girl
Tries to take over the world
But doesn't know her own limits

Feels like she's got something to say
A message to convey
But can't quite get the words out of her mouth

See if we both tried
To put this right I know
We'd make the best of it

But if you let me leave
Without telling me
Then we're done

What if we were meant to be?
What if hopes and dreams were free?
I can't say I never tried
What if you had never lied
Would that make things better now?
I've gotta know somehow
Then I'll be fine
But I can't read your mind

What if we were meant to be?
What if hopes and dreams were free?
I can't say I never tried
What if you had never lied
Would that make things better now?
I've gotta know somehow
Then I'll be fine
But I can't read your mind

What if we were meant to be?
What if hopes and dreams were free?
I can't say I never tried
What if you had never lied
Would that make things better now?
I've gotta know somehow
Then I'll be fine
But I can't read your mind

Yeah definately your best vocal, what did you do differently to achieve it.
If you can create the same presence on the instruments, you will have an ACE production.
I think drums are Ok accept the bass drum, it's a bit overpowering

I find there is always a tendance of adding too much Bass to a track, when infact more than often you have to reduce it. I bought some cheap studio headphones recently, but they are sensistive enough to hear the best settings. 

BEST SONG FROM YOU

Keep experimenting!!!!

Thanks Denis! 

For the vocals I just experimented with the recording settings and then used some EQ in sony vegas instead of Audacity. I'll have a play around with the instruments next time!
