This song is not in a battle

Um, wrote this on the otherside of New Zealand. It's about admitting you're wrong basically


Thereís a place,
Where the worn becomes the new.
Few people know that it exsists,
Where redemptionís just admittance away.

And dignity will stay,
If situations are level with your head.

What time.
I thought there for a while that i had won.
What a joke,
Falling prey to circumstance light years away.


Itís a heavy obligation when youíre singing your own song.
And youíve only just been told that youíre singing it all wrong.
And you think the words canít change youíve been singing them too long.

Itís a heavy obligation X3

But thereís a place you can go,
To lighten the load.


April came and went and turned to may.
Today, here I stand clutching on to shame.
Wonít let up,
Waiting here for something to erupt.

It stays.
Locked inside my body aching maze.
And Iím right.

I like the arpeggiated chord progressions you have in this song, and I also like your use of dynamics in your playing You also have a soothing voice that really suits the song...I look forward to hearing more.

I even found myself getting my guitar out to play along with it hehe...

Wooh! My first reply, ever.
Hey thanks man. I do have what I concider better stuff, but I thought seeing as I can't enter them yet, it might be a waste. Or something? My thinking is lacking clarity.

Nice Song. Nothing that makes me say "Yeah I'd buy that" or " Yeah that bit is brilliant", but it's still a pretty good song even more so because it's your first go. Keep it up!

This is a beautiful song. Perfect, for what it is: a beautiful song.  I'm trying real hard to find something I can vengefully criticize, alas... no luck!

There's that voice again.  [sighs]  I can listen to it for countless hours. 
Even find myself humming, singing right along with ya.

April came and went and turned to may.
Today, here I stand clutching on to shame.
Wonít let up,
Waiting here for something to erupt.

love it, EG...
