House Called Forever

This song is not in a battle


block by block, I built this house forever
sticks and stones, they all come together
there's a long night ahead, and its coming down the road
Stay with me, and you wont have to spend it alone

Follow me down to forever, the road is long, and the nights are mighty cold
But follow me down to forever, and you wont have to walk, through paradise all alone

Trials and troubles, assault me like a gun
I've killed this dragon just for you
To the friends we've met, and the friends who are now all gone
This song goes out, just for you

First of: Never fade out such kind of rock songs.
Next: Chord progression reminds me of "Knockin on Heavens Door", in other words I dont think that the chorus fits the verse musically. I would use another chord skeleton. But that is my personal impression. Lyrics are good. The words seem to have some spiritual background, right?
Second next: Your voice is a killer. And I believe it cries for more!
Last: Would love to hear more of you!

Thank you for the feedback Triton, the lyrics were written for a friend who was having a rough way to go.
Apple, the house I live in is pretty old, I think the buzz is coming from the old wiring. I have never been able to get rid of it completely, just make it quieter. When I first started with this the buzz was so loud I almost couldn't make out the lyrics! Someday I hope to fix it.

Ahhh I see The laundry room in my house is right next to my room so it also bleeds into a lot of my recordings lol!  Have you considered using a pre-amp (if you don't have one already) and maybe adjusting the gain on it and your microphone (if you have an option to use the -15dB switch)?  It's worked pretty well for my recordings despite the noise!  Best of luck!
