This song is not in a battle


2nd song for the RPM challenge in 2012. As always, feedback is appreciated!

Lyrics:

Hold on little girl. Don't lose hope.
Even though things seem so damn broken now,
I want you to know that it gets so much better.

My thoughts flow out, like a hurricane,
Always pressing on to you even when we are alone.
You hold a piece of this wandering heart.
I only hope it brings some comfort when you're feeling low.

Challenges show your strength

Just wait for tomorrow.

Holding on when we're weak makes us stronger.
Squeeze my hand if you're afraid.
I won't leave you.

Gotta say, because I love talking to myself- this is certainly the most fun I've had writing a song in terms of time signatures. We've got a mix of 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, and 7/4 in here. Also 2 tempos- which I don't often do within a single song.

You think I over-did it on compression, Max? I'm still learning the ropes there. I think this style/genre of music should be pretty compressed (at least the guitars and drums) but I could have gone overboard..

As for the (lack of an) intro... Yeah it's weird. I don't think I've written many songs that start with vocals and guitar right on measure one. It just felt... right, with this one.

Thanks for the kind words!

Are you using auto-tune in your vocals? I think that's what I don't like about them.

That's really weird! Are you using some filter on them? There's something there that bothers me.

Other than, the song is pretty good.
